Description

This mask is a true multi-tasker, designed to make your skin clearer, brighter and smoother, all at the same time. There's Green Clay and Kaolin to draw out impurities, Avocado Oil to moisturise, Goji Berry extract to soothe and Willow Bark extract for radiance.
Free From: Parabens, Mineral Oils, Sodium Laureth Sulphate and Animal Ingredients.
Did you know? A face-mask doesn't have to be something that takes hours. Because Five-minute Facial is so quick, you can use it to give your skin a quick, brightening boost in the evening before you go out.

Directions

After cleansing, smooth on a thin layer of Five Minute Facial, avoiding the delicate skin around the eyes. Relax for five minutes while the mask dries, then splash with warm water and rinse off (using a hot, damp flannel makes this easier). Use weekly or whenever your skin needs a quick, brightening boost.

I have only recently come across this brand of toiletries and beauty products. Apparently Good Things was created by Amanda Hart-Davis, a beauty writer using her experience in the field. The products have been developed to make the best of young skin. I bought this before I knew that but hopefully it works for old skin too.

GOOD THINGS
I particularly was drawn to the super fruits claim on the front of the pack combined with the 'Free From symbol telling me it had no parabens, SLS, animal ingredients or mineral oils.

This means the product is cruelty free and is suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

THE FIVE MINUTE FACIAL
The product comes in a plastic upside down tube so that the tube sits on the flip top lid. The tube is a pale blue colour with the graphics and writing on the front in one of three colours, black, purple and a pink which actually is more subtle than it sounds. It looks as though it is a good quality product rather than cheap and tacky.

On the back it tells you a bit about the company then the product and how to use it followed by a list of ingredients in smaller text.

MY PERSONAL FIVE MINUTES

I am a sucker for anything different and couldn't resist this despite having two tubs of Lush face masks and others in my drawer!. I couldn't wait to test this one out and because it isn't fresh there is no need for it to be kept in the fridge so I don't have to patter down pre bath to collect my face mask as this is in the bathroom already.

This squeezes out of the plastic tube through a medium sized hole so a thin snake of the cream comes out. It is reasonably thick, like a cream rather than a body butter but thicker than a lotion. It feels really silky soft and creamy and glides onto my face gently and smoothly.

It smell lovely, a sort of fruity sweet scent and very refreshing. As it feels cool on application that helps with the refreshing feel too. So a combination of silky smooth sweet and fruity scent make this a lovely treat as I then lie back in my bath and relax.

This doesn't dry to a crisp cakey feel but rather stays soft and creamy. After five minutes you can rinse this off. I use a damp face cloth to wipe it off gently. It is a good idea to keep it away from you eyes so the face cloth helps with wiping it off more accurately. If it does get in your eyes then rinse thoroughly with lots of water.

I found it comes off pretty easily because it does dry to that crisp hard finish. After I rinse it off I then tone and moisturise before applying any make up .

This mask is full of things that are good for your skin. The green clay and kaolin are there to draw out any impurities in the skin. Lovely avocado oil which is full of vitamin E is there to moisturise and of course gives the mask that nice silky feel too. They have added goji berry juice and extract which is very soothing for the skin and finally willow bark extract gives the skin a nice radiant finish. There is also she butter another fine skin moisturiser and blueberry fruit extract which is full of anti oxidants.

I am also happy to buy a product made in the UK from a British company as I like to support home grown companies.

After rinsing this off I find that my skin feels quite soft and well moisturised, not at all tight and dry feeling. I do then tone and moisturise. I am not sure I can see my skin looking more radiant but I think, sadly that boat has long since sailed. I am just happy to have clean nice feeling and slighter firmer skin. Other products I use fight the sands of time and are anti ageing, wrinkle filling and so on.

It does say this is designed for making the most of younger skin and again mine isn't but I can't see it doing any harm. It won't wipe the years off me but it cleans and freshens my tired skin and I have been happy using this one.

I bought this from Boots for £3.99 and used my Boots Advantage card so earned a few more points. I think for 100ml that is great value as it will last ages . I am sure I will get at least twenty uses if not more as I have used it four of five times and it still looks pretty full as you don't needs loads for each use.

Summary
I first noticed these on Facebook and the name did intrigue me loads.
This was one of the first things I bought and what a mask it is!
So easy to apply, it is the right consistency to apply a nice coat.
Very easy to rinse off, or like I did, use the hot cleanser technique.
Very nice fragrance too.
Skin was left feeling and looking clear and actually looked a little bit brighter and more alive.
For the price, it is a very good mask and lasts ages.
