Rodial Glamoxy "Snake" Mask

Wednesday, 6 April 2011

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.

But ...

... 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.

  6. Hahaha! There's something strangely satisfying about peel off masks though. They are way more fun than the rinse off kind.

  7. It is the peeling off bit that draws me to this mask - may stop me from squeezing teensy spots because they annoy me and then ending up with a big red angry patch which takes 2 weeks to go. Oh dear at my age I should know better but as they say there is no fool like an old fool. Jan x
