I love this mask so much. First bought it while on a work trip when my skin was freaking out and hyper sensitive. I was desperate for a moisturising mask to calm my skin down and bought it after reading a review of it on A Model Recommends. At the time I was breaking out with whiteheads, blackheads and deep cystic acne, had peeling dry skin around my chin and mouth, and had what looked like spots of chemical burns on my cheeks.

After only one night the difference I saw was amazing. The skin around my chin wasn’t flaking anymore, the rough, red, sensitised skin had calmed down, softened and looked smoother. My dry cheeks were even bouncy! And while it didn’t clear up my acne/break out (and doesn’t claim to do so) - it didn’t cause any new spots, and the existing spots looked less red and inflamed.

My skin has calmed down significantly since then, and I continue to use this about once a week. Every time I do I wake up with smoother, brighter-looking skin that feels super hydrated and bouncy to touch. I cannot recommend this highly enough.

A little goes a long way. The product is clear/white and has a glue-like texture. The SA explained how to apply a thin layer from the centre of the face outwards, apparently you don’t want the product to turn white as you apply it so you should avoid rubbing back and forth. After leaving on for 5 mins, dab away any excess product with tissues (I place a layer of tissue over my face and then just peel the tissue off rather than wiping). Then rub the remaining product in and leave overnight. I personally love a leave-on mask because it means fewer steps in my routine!

The hygienic tube packaging is a bonus and is great for travelling. It is also excellent for keeping skin hydrated if you like doing masks on long haul flights, and applying it is very discreet which is perfect if like me you find it somewhat embarrassing to sit next to strangers on a plane with a sheet mask on your face.

Quite expensive, £45 for a tube of 2.45 oz/ 70 g, but I wouldn’t hesitate to repurchase.

Fantastic product for dehydrated, flaky, or dry skin with a damaged moisture barrier. It's also effective for burns from chemical peels. I have combination skin. The skin around my nose gets dehydrated (as opposed to dry) and flaky easily, especially in winter months with the heaters running all day. I squeeze out one dot of the mask, spread it between my forefingers, and massage it just around my nose. I'll apply a thinner layer all over and I don't need a lot of product to cover my face.

My skin is sticky after applying the mask. Suqqu says you can blot off the excess with a tissue after 15 minutes, I prefer to leave it on. I wake up next morning with dewy hydrated skin. If I'm feeling really dehydrated or if my skin is raw/burnt from chemical peels, I'll apply a second layer the next morning, then sunscreen, and then my makeup. My makeup (esp foundation around my nose) looks good for the day.

I'm impressed with how it penetrate the skin and hydrates deeply. When my skin is very dehydrated, particularly the bit around my nose, creams and emulsions just feel like they're sitting on top, and when I touch my skin, it feels rough. After I apply the Suqqu Moisture Rich Mask, the dehydrated rough parts of my face become soft and normal again.

The mask is a thick translucent gel. You can spray a hydrating mist and it will spread more easily. It turns milky white if you rub it in, that's normal and the product turns transparent after a few minutes.

This moisture mask came as part of my Christmas gift from Suqqu, and considering it runs at 20K (roughly $200) a pop, the sample size was quite generous. According to the package you should apply a thin layer to face and let it work its magic for 5 minutes, then tissue off. I have combination skin (drier in winter) so I apply a REALLY nano-miniscule layer, and Voila! In 5 minutes I have baby smooth skin, primed and ready for my foundation. Yes, it`s true the Suqqu foundations are said to work without primer, but as the sales assistant pointed out, they work much better if you use this mask in conjunction with the Suqqu Moisture Barrier Cream.

The steps are a little counter-intuitive: first, you must use the Suqqu Moisture Barrier Cream, THEN apply the Suqqu Moisture Mask, finally foundation. Hmm... When the sales assistant did this whole routine on me, I broke out. However, there`s no denial that my skin looked flawless, without red and flaky patches an entire day at -6C with cold winds. Now, when I use it at home I just apply the smallest layers of mask and cream and I get great moisturized skin without acne.

So far, the gift sample looks like it will last me a good while. If I were to move to a colder climate I would definitely repurchase despite the hefty tag, because I like the way it works and have tried many other creams that do not give nearly as good results. My motto: Stick with what works.
