H&M Cucumber Face Mask

Let's have a talk about H&M skin care. Today, I have a review of the Cucumber peel-off face mask which you can buy for 99p in the larger H&M stores and online. I say the larger stores because I haven't seen them in any smaller, local H&Ms.


I decided to give this a go on Saturday night whilst doing a bit of blogging and watching some Ant & Dec. Well I'll tell you for nothing it didn't go down quite like that. 

I'll start by saying if you have sensitive skin don't even bother. Don't waste your 99p. 

I applied a thick layer of this on my face and down my neck. You get lots of product in the packet, you could probably get two applications out of it if you wanted to. And the mask itself is a thick and sticky green liquid. It smells strongly of cucumber, as you'd suspect, but kind of artificial; not like real cucumber. 


I had this on my face for a matter of seconds before it started to sting like a bitch. I hadn't even managed to get it off my hands before I was running to the bathroom to wash it off my face. Afterwards, my face was bright red and slightly puffy. I lathered on the E45 and it settled down but even an hour later my face was still red. I'm not sure whether my skin just didn't agree with this face mask because my skin isn't super sensitive, it just gets dry sometimes, or whether I'm actually allergic to it. It bloody felt like I was allergic to it. 

Bottom line, if your skin isn't sensitive to them, these are really good value, for 99p you can definitely get 2 applications out of them. Obviously I can't comment on the effect of this mask because I didn't have it on for long enough; I mostly wanted to warn people with sensitive skin not to try it. Also, it does say on the packet to do a test for irritation before whipping it on your face. I was just too confident that all would be fine. 

I do have the Dragon Fruit Polishing Mask from H&M too which I will still try once my face has settled down again but I will be doing a test first this time!


Have you had any experience with the H&M masks?
What did you think?

See you next time,
