Winter has seriously taken it’s toll on my skin and it’s really felt the affects of the cold weather. My face and hands suffer from dryness in the colder air and require lots of moisture injected back in. The range of masks from Iroha have been a saviour in the rehabilitation of my dry skin – I’ve tried and tested the Iroha Creamy Coconut Smoothing Mask, Citrus Brightening Sheet Mask and the Peach Hand Mask*.
Iroha Nature Creamy Coconut Smoothing Mask Review
This mask has five uses with a twist cap you pop off and pop back in in between each use. It’s of fairly thin consistency and you apply a layer all over your face (or where you want to add the moisture) and leave on for 15 minutes. It smells deliciously of coconuts but it isn’t so overpowering you can’t enjoy your mask.
The formula sinks slightly into the skin and leaves a tacky shiny film for the duration of the mask. It suggests washing off after 15-20 minutes, this isn’t one I would say leave on as it doesn’t sink in enough. I used this immediately after using a detox clay mask and this was just what my skin needed to re-moisturise. It felt supple and soft and happy again to be nicely moisturised! I would definitely recommend this for any dry skin troubles!
Iroha Nature Citrus Brightening Sheet Mask
This sheet mask uses Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid to brighten the skin. Apply straight from the packet and leave on for 15 minutes. The mask is saturated in formula and it feels so refreshing on the skin. The mask is quite thick but does mould to the face well, with the bottom under my chin falling away slightly at the beginning.
The mask has the usual holes for the eyes, nose and mouth as well as tears in the edges so it can mould and contour to your face properly. It smells slightly of citrus but nothing overpowering.
Upon removal, my skin felt cool and refreshed, so I would definitely recommend this a morning mask as it wakes your skin up. In terms of brightening, I’m not sure I noticed a huge difference but my skin did feel refreshed.
Iroha Nature Peach Hand Mask
I’d never before heard of a hand mask prior to this one, which uses peach and 16 other natural extracts to intensely moisturise those dry hands. Mine are always dry in the winter so I’m constantly applying hand cream and this was a welcome injection of moisture. The mask has a plastic outer, with a soft tissue inner which is absolutely saturated with creamy product that smells of sweet peaches.
They’re a large size to fit everyone but fit fine on smaller hands as the product makes it sticks to your hands. They feel slightly weird at first, my Mum described it as when you get water into rubber washing up gloves! You can’t do a great deal with them on, but you can still pick up a drink so grab a cuppa and relax whilst it gets to work! Leave on for 15-20 minutes then massage the remaining product into the hands. After I’d used mine, there was so much product left inside I gave it to my Mum to have a go!
The product stays on your hands for a while and I had to keep massaging in but wow, my hand felt incredible afterwards! They felt so moisturised and smooth it was amazing. After a while the product soaked in and no longer felt tacky. The feeling only really lasts until you next wash your hands, but my hands are noticeably less dry since using them. I would recommend if you suffer from dry hands!
