Sometimes you choose a product because it makes promises you want to believe in.
Like Rodial's Glamoxy Snake Mask, which promises:
"...to instantly lift the face, freeze muscles and plump fine lines and wrinkles"
It's a black, peel-off mask that contains amino acids and licorice to deep cleanse your pores and has peptides to help deal with fine lines. The combination of ingredients is supposed to mimic "venom" in order to give you smoother skin. It's a sticky, and viscous gel, and I have to admit that it's a complete pain in the backside to apply, as it's thick, doesn't spread well, and starts to set the second you squeeze it from the tube. But, that said, it's enormous fun to peel off in one sheet, and peer at the gucky insides.
It did leave my skin feeling smoother, but, at £68 per tube (which I estimate you'd only get three - maybe four - uses out of) it's an extremely expensive bit of fun, and, to be honest, I didn't notice the smoothing effects lasting much beyond the next day.
... sometimes you pick a product because you can take pictures like this when you're using it:
This, dear readers, is what beauty bloggers do to amuse themselves when at a bit of a loose end on a Saturday night. Don't tell me you don't do the same.
The Fine Print: Samples sent by PR for review, actual cost £68. Total fun: Priceless.
