Tried & Tested: Weleda Iris Hydrating Masque

Thursday, 7 March 2013

Weleda Iris Hydrating Masque* (30ml, £12.49)

When it comes to face masks, I have a habit of going on auto pilot and heading straight for the ones that promise me things like banishing blemishes, smaller pores and brighter skin, which is probably why I've bypassed this hidden skincare gem for so long.

Weleda's Iris Hydrating Masque is a creamy face mask which has some amazing powers (seriously, this thing is like Wonder Woman coming to rescue you!).  Not only does it take the skin to a whole new level of feeling moisturised, but it also helps to regulate that moisture balance and keep everything happy at the same time.  Genius. 

Why is this so important to me?  Well being plagued with oily/combination skin means that most face masks that are billed as 'hydrating' are simply too hydrating for me.  I don't need a thick, heavy, too rich formula because that's only going to clog up my pores and make me look greasy.  That's not attractive!  Instead, I want something that will seriously hydrate my dry parts, but do so only lightly on the oily bits.  Somehow this face mask manages to do exactly that.  My skin feels super soft and looks more healthy/less tired.

To use, I simply apply a small amount all over a clean, cleansed face, leave it on for around 10 minutes and wash it off with warm water.  If your skin is drier, I'd suggest leaving it for an extra 10 minutes so that it soaks up more of the lovely formula.  I've been using it once a week for the last few weeks and it's like going in for a spa facial every time I use it!

  5. Good call -- I often use masks that are too hydrating in the summer and they don't always work well for me. Looking forward to checking this out when it's warmer here!

  6. Sounds lovely! Do you think it would work for very dry skin though or more suited towards combination? x

    1. I think it would work great for very dry skin if you leave it on longer, because it's a cream formula your skin will soak up more of it if it needs it :) x
