Quick Fix Facials Exfoliating Scrub Mask Review

I recently spotted this ehilst having a snoop around TK Maxx and thought I would give it a go, the name 'Quick Fix Facials' is what caught my attention and originally drew me in.





The packaging: I much prefer masks that come in easy squeezable tubes than the ones that come in packets as I find even with my ridiculously large round head a lot of product is wasted and in general it is just easier to get out. Although I am not the greatest fan of the orange and purple colour scheme, I do not care that much as I am more concerned with the results of a mask rather than the pretty packaging it may come in.

The texture: As its extremely exfoliating the beads are quite large and some may find abrasive, but saying that I have extremely sensitive skin and it didn't even leave me all red faced and extremely sexy looking as masks often do. It kind of reminds me of cold porridge with bits in it, perhaps not an ideal image for something you want to slap all around your face, but hey,why not?

The smell: Perhaps smell is an odd thing to mention, but for me I am what you may call a sniff-aholic I have an extremely strong sense of smell and the smell of this product is not something I am a fan of, it kind of reminds me of old ladies, although not an unbearable completely foul smell, its arguably not a pleasant one either. I think the smell is down to the

The application: It says to apply to damp skin and leave for five to ten minutes. I apply it before going in the shower and then rinse off in there because that's jut what I find easier. It says to massage into problem areas, for me these are my nose and cheeks and then I rinse my face under the shower as I usually would in order to get rid of the remaining product. The overall application and removal of this product really could not be simpler.

Overall: I was really chuffed with the fast results of this cheap and cheerful product and will definitely be picking it up from Boot's from now on and I am dying to try their anti-blesh mud mask next.  It rapidly decreased the size of my visible pores and the black heads that were on my nose are now gone after just two uses, I think this is due to the glycolic acid as I have seen it mentioned in various other products of similar ideas. You get a lot of product for the RRP of £4.99 which is always a bonus, who doesn't love more bang for their buck?

  1. I have dry, sensitive skin so have to be extra careful with exfoliating products. Glad to hear it didn't leave yours feeling stripped though :) Not sure about the scent, I find it really adds something to a product when it smells divine!
