I must confess I am a huge fan of the No 7 range, affordable, good quality skin care, body care and make-up can’t be a bad thing as far as I’m concerned.
The No 7 Pore Vacuum Mask is available online and at No 7 counters in a 50ml tube for £14 and claims to deep cleanse and reduce the size of the pores by drawing out dirt, impurities and excess oil leaving the skin fresh and clear looking.
The mask has a ‘crisp’, if not slightly medicated smell and a thick consistency. After applying, I left it to set for 10 minutes as recommended, as the mask was drying it didn’t seem to pull or tighten my skin as some clay based masks can. The information leaflet suggests that after ’10 minutes gently peel away from the skin’ I found this to be easier said than done as it brought a tear to my eye trying to remove the mask and it was more ‘picked off’ rather than peeled and I ended up using a warm cloth to remove any residual product.
To be honest, I was put off by the amount of time it took to get the mask back off, however once I had managed to remove it, my skin definitely looked clear and fresh and I can’t deny that my pores were significantly less obvious and on the whole my skin seemed to glow.
I bought the No 7 Pore Vacuum Mask as soon as it was launched and have used it twice a week since then and will continue to do so as I feel the regular use of this product is of great benefit to the appearance and feel of my skin especially now that I have realised its easier and less uncomfortable to remove this product if its applied in a slightly thinner layer than recommended on the packaging.
