Primark Beauty The After Mask Mask

Facemasks have pretty much become a way of life, not just for the staff of the NHS and similar occupations, but for the everyday person who wants to go to the shop to buy some milk, board a bus or even chat to the postman, socially distanced of course!  Wearing that mask does come with issues for many of us, a new issue we didn't have before and once which already quickly gathered a name for itself - Maskne!

Primark Beauty has a whole host of hidden gems within its beauty hall, which one day, I hope we can all go back to visiting, but just before lockdown, I was kindly sent some of their new collection of masks, which are aptly names the After Mask Mask Half Sheet Masks!
Introducing the After Mask Masks by Primark Beauty, two variations of sheet masks created to help soothe irritated skin caused by wearing a face covering. These innovative sheet masks are designed to cover the bottom area of the face where the skin is impacted by a face-covering and will help to cleanse and hydrate skin, whilst also reducing any blemishes along the jawline, cheeks and mouth area.
Over the past 10 months we will have all read up on, read about or learnt that face coverings foster a micro-environment of increased humidity, friction and heat, meaning they can cause irritation, especially for those who already have underlying skin conditions. One of the most common face covering irritations is acne, or as we have come to know it “maskne". Breakouts, as we know, happen when pressure from the covering traps oil and skin debris in the pores. So how do we deal with it?

Primark have come up with a skincare treatment which is designed to help deal with maskne with the new After Mask Masks, which are made in Korea. With two variations of sheet masks which have been specifically created to help soothe irritated skin caused by wearing a face covering. These innovative sheet masks are designed to cover the bottom area of the face where the skin is impacted by a face-covering and will help to cleanse and hydrate skin, whilst also reducing any blemishes along the jawline, cheeks and mouth area.

In the purple sachet we have the Hydrate Half Mask, which because it is a half mask, is designed to target the face that has been covered with a mask.  It uses Hyaluronic Acid and Cucumber to replenish the hydration as well as Sunflower Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Vitamins E and B5 and Rosemary to name a few of those ingredients.

In the blue sachet we have the Cleansing Half Mask and as with the mask mentioned above, it's role is to target the part of the face which has been covered with your face mask.  This one uses Australian Tea Tree Oil and Salicylic Acid to target blemishes.

At 90p each, it is easy to scoff and make a whole lot of assumptions as to the how well a job they do, but actually, not only is the cleansing mask incredibly good for soothing skin which feels sore to the touch after wearing a mask for long periods of time, the Hydrate mask is really refreshing if your skin is hot to the touch as well.  I really like that these are half masks, they sit really comfortably on the skin and you only need to wear the mask for up to 20 minutes to feel the benefits.

Have you tried any skincare or masks from Primark?

  3. I’ve never tried anything from Primark beauty but these sound really good. I struggle with acne on my chin (although not related to wearing a mask) so these sound soothing. Are they CF?

  4. I don't think I've ever tried a sheet mask from Primark before. It sounds like they have put a lot of thought into them and I like that they are a half mask. I definitely want to try these out when the shops reopen.
