Rodial describes its Glamoxy Snake Mask as “an innovative black ‘peel off’ formula that visibly improves skin radiance and texture, whilst helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines.” It claims to be deep cleansing and decongesting, and that it draws out impurities and excess sebum, helps to diminish the appearance of expression lines, and brightens and corrects skin tone.
I was very excited to try out the Snake Mask after liking the look of it at a demo alongside Rodial’s coveted (but extremely pricey) Snake Serum at a Harvey Nichols beauty event a couple of years ago, but never wanting to spend £29 on a 50ml tube. For me this is quite pricey, however if you break it down to price per use (I would image I’ll get 10-20 uses) it really isn’t bad at all. The mask is unique in that it is jet black – definitely not one you want to be answering the door to the postman/woman in! It is very gloopy and therefore a little difficult to apply, and it is fragranced so if you have sensitive skin I’d advise a patch test before applying it all over your face. I also find that I need to shake the tube otherwise the mask can come out a little watery.
Now I’m still only 20 (21 next month!) so lines and wrinkles aren’t a concern just yet, but I love this mask regardless. I’m interested in anything which will unclog pores and brighten my skin, and I think that the Snake Mask definitely delivers. It’s much more effective than any other peel off mask I’ve ever used, plus the fact that it is peel off makes it easy (and also fun!) to remove. It leaves my skin smoother and brighter, and I have personally found that whilst it draws out impurities, it doesn’t then break me out 2-3 days later and so is fine to use just before a special event.
Have you tried the Rodial Glamoxy Snake Mask, or will you be picking it up? Can you recommend any other Rodial products?
