Face masks on test

Decléor face mask
Decléor Flower Essence Moisturising Mask, £22.50
Key ingredients
Mint, orange blossom, hazelnut oil, neroli and wild pansy extract.
The claims ‘Ideal for skin that is totally dehydrated. Its drip-feed hydration system and anti-pollution plant ingredients take moisturising further.'
Tester's verdict ‘My face looked radiant and felt protected afterwards, too. This is a must for any dry skin sufferers.'
Rating: 5 stars

Guinot Masque Hydra Beauté, £26.50
Key ingredients
Shea butter
The claims ‘Refreshes dehydrated skin, brightens the complexion and minimises signs
of fatigue.'
Tester's verdict ‘Although it could be easier to remove, this rich mask didn't aggravate my sensitive skin, which felt softer and brighter than before. The label recommends using it twice a week, though, which would mean I'd finish it in just two weeks.'
Rating: 3 stars

Origins Drink Up, £15
Key ingredients
Blackcurrant, orange, rose, almond and algae extracts, plus apricot oil.
The claims ‘A cocktail of caretakers hydrates, refreshes and radiates skin.'
Tester's verdict ‘This is easy to apply and didn't leave my skin too tight. It smells lovely and fruity, and my complexion felt refreshed and smooth for hours afterwards.'
Rating: 4 stars

Elemis Exotic Cream Moisturising Mask, £26.50
Key ingredients
Mimosa, honey and neroli.
The claims ‘A hydrating and soothing treatment with regenerative and firming properties.'
Tester's verdict ‘I enjoyed using this. It smelled pleasant, glided on smoothly and was easy to remove - and I was proud to show off the packaging in my bathroom! I noticed a definite difference in my skin.'  
Rating: 5 stars

Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque, £24.30 (0800 591818)
Key ingredients
Bitter orange, hops, cucumber, arnica and vitamins A, C and E.
The claims ‘A refreshing, oil-free gel that restores critical moisture and helps to restore suppleness and reduce appearance of fine lines.'
Tester's verdict ‘The mask went on well, and I could feel it working in seconds. My face felt clean, hydrated and fresh afterwards. I'd definitely use it again.'
Rating: 4 stars

Crabtree & Evelyn Rejuvenating Mask, £18.50 (020 7361 0499)
Key ingredients
Papaya and pineapple fruit extracts, willowherb and honey.
The claims ‘Restores radiance and reveals dreamy, fresh skin.'
Tester's verdict ‘Although the mask tightens the skin, it's not drying, but the gel is rather sticky and needs a lot of splashing to remove it completely. My skin is smoother and more refined.'
Rating: 3 stars
