Today I went with the Elemis Super Food Vital Veggie mask for my face mask. I have to say, it smells healthy from the first second you twist open the top. It has the scent of vegetal goodness. I put the mask onto my little silicone spatula to apply it so that if I have to add more to my face I don’t end up covering the tube in mask as I try to squeeze it.
Then when I think I have enough on my face I close the lid to the mask, set it aside, turn on the water and then smooth out the mask onto my face. As soon as the mask is in place I rinse the hands and brush and I don’t coat the bathroom in product.
I have to say this little silicone spatula brush is the best $0.93 I have ever spent. My only regret is that I didn’t get the three pack. I wanted to see how I liked it before I stocked up on back ups. The second that this spatula looks like it is approaching the end of its like, I will be replacing it. It makes masks so much less of a mess to apply.
But you didn’t come here to listen to me wax poetical about my silicone brush. At least I don’t think you did, so to the mask.
According to the website…
Get a shot of green goodness with this treatment mask that nourishes, smoothes and brightens, for softer, smoother, more radiant skin.
Wheatgrass, Kale and Nettle replenish the skin with vital minerals and vitamins for a healthy-looking complexion. Avocado and Chia Seed Oils, naturally rich in Omega Fatty Acids 6 and 9, soften skin and lock in moisture. Vitamin C and Passionfruit Acids reveal a brighter-looking complexion. This product is Vegan Friendly, and like all ELEMIS products, it is cruelty free.
It is clear that the avocado gives it the green color, since it looks like it is the same color as an avocado smoothie. Although I am pretty sure the other greens help with the tint. There is a slight prickling sensation when it sits on the skin. I’m pretty sure that can be attributed to the nettles.
Its not an uncomfortable sensation, in fact I kind of like it. It makes me feel the mask is doing something. It is however a very present sensation. You feel this mask on the face. It doesn’t tighten like clay masks, but it feels prickly. I don’t know any other way to describe it.
I am a big fan of Elemis products. I’ve tried quite a few and I have yet to find one that I don’t actually like. I recently received an Elemis travel sized cleansing balm and I’ve been using it to remove my makeup every night. I am already dreading the day it runs out.
With the mask on I relaxed to music. With all of our fans on in an attempt to keep the inside temperature reasonable while the outside temps soar, candles didn’t seem like a good idea today. So I put on my headphones and put on some music.
I went with Rage Against The Machine in case you were wondering.
The Renegades Album to be exact.
I found it quite soothing.
When time was up, I reluctantly turned the music off and returned to the bathroom. As you can see, the mask absorbed into some of my skin. I think I might have layered it a little too thickly on the skin. For me this is good news as it means I can use less and make the tube last longer. Which is extra nice, because I will be replacing it as soon as it runs out. I’ve actually been trying to use up the masks I have so that I can whittle down my face mask collection to the masks I really love. I’ll still try out new ones but I’m clearing out all of the just okay masks at the moment.
This mask is more than okay. It is fantastic. I wiped off the remaining product with a damp Makeup Eraser (it is going in the laundry this afternoon so the additional product wasn’t an issue). This let me not strip away the nutrients seeping into my skin from the mask.
My skin feels amazing. It is soft and hydrated and just feels super healthy. Which is kind of what I was looking for in a mask today. I just wanted my skin to feel good. And it really does. I think it looks a little better in the last photo, Sorry I forgot to snap a before the mask pic.
Needless to say this mask is staying in my collection. If you are looking for a good hydrating mask, this might be one you want to check out. Just be aware of the prickly sensation. I may like it but I know it isn’t for everyone.
But alas it is now back to work for me. My break is over. I hope everyone has a good day and an excellent weekend. Stay safe and have fun.
