We’ve all seen the photos on instagram with the girls covered with a kaleidoscope of colourful creams on their face, perfectly placed to target different problem areas of their complexion. Well now Clarins have released three new SOS Face Masks so you can paint your face in pretty pastel shades and actually treat your skin to some serious TLC. This trio of face masks offer targeted solutions for instant beauty rescue and can be used once to twice a week.
SOS Hydra is a refreshing hydration mask that is suitable for all skin types and offers intense hydration to tight, rough and dull skin that has been affected by temperature change, sun, wind and pollution. It is a cooling cream-gel like texture and does feel (and smell) like you are slathering on a fruity sorbet! It gives your skin intense moisture and radiance thanks for the organic leaf of life extract and hyaluronic acid which we all know retains water inside the skin, giving an immediate plumping effect.
SOS Pure is a rebalancing face mask which id ideal for combination and oily skin types. If you have a complexion that is prone to shine and enlarged pores then this is the one for you! It has a non-drying, powdery cream texture which purifies and restores velvet soft skin thanks to the effective combination of plant ingredients. It contains organic alpine willow herb extract which helps limit shine and promotes matte skin as well as white and green clay to absorb impurities and boost radiance.
SOS Comfort is a nourishing balm mask and is the dream choice if you are after velvety skin and a seriously glowing complexion. This mask is all about combating dry skin but enveloping and nourishing the skin in a rich, buttery cream. It contains wild mango butter to help nourish and soften the skin as well as mango oil which is rich in fatty acids. This helps protect against dehydration and restores supple skin.
Clarins recommend exfoliating your skin before use to make skin more receptive and also to apply the masks in a hot bath, so get that water running! But which mask would you pick?
