Nügg bills themselves as ‘The Face Mask Authority’ and the brand is all about providing top quality skin treatments at affordable prices. The packets may be small, but they certainly pack a powerful punch and the formulation is backed-up by some impressive skincare science.
It’s pretty clear from my blog that I am a HUGE face mask fan so I jumped at the chance to try these. The idea of single-use pods really appealed to me as I often find face masks can be quite messy to apply and a lot of product seems to get wasted, plus as an avid reader of Paulas Choice I’ve realised that the packaging of a product is paramount to its potency. The Nügg pod single-use packaging keeps the product fresh right up until use and minimizes oxidation (which is when the air getting into the product causing it to be less effective) so you know that the product is 100% effective when you use it.
Each one contains a potent blend of tailored natural oils and extracts -.powered by cutting edge technology that eliminates the need for chemical emulsifiers. So each nügg Face Mask contains over 90% natural or naturally derived ingredients AND has NO chemical emulsifiers, NO fragrances, NO synthetic colors, NO petrochemicals, NO parabens. Pretty good eh?
So far I have used the ‘soothing’(*), hydrating (*) and the ‘de-stress’(*) face masks and each was absolutely wonderful and left my skin feeling soft and nourished. There is a very generous amount in each pod and you simply apply a thick layer to your face, wait for 10 minutes and wash off. I love to put my face masks in the fridge to add to the soothing sensation so I did the same with the pods and then applied them whilst relaxing in the bath. The hydrating and deep cleansing mask have both been won Allure Beauty awards and there is a lot of buzz around these masks - having tried them I can totally see why.
I’ve focused on the soothing/hydrating masks so far so I’m really excited to see the effects of the deep cleansing and exfoliating masks. I also have a first date coming up soon (aaahhhhhh!) so will be using the revitalizing mask before and will report back (on the mask and the date!)
You can buy Nügg face masks in sets of 4 (£13.50) which contain a range of face masks, or if you have a firm favourite mask or two (or three!) you can buy a set of 5 (£16.50). With summer sort of here (I mean we had sunshine for like a day so that’s pretty much Summer done in England) these are absolutely ideal for popping in your hand luggage if you’re jetting off to sunnier climes or to have at the ready for a quick, anytime complexion pick-me-up.
I’m running a competition over on my Twitter where you can win one full set - ALL SEVEN FACE MASKS!!!! So head on over and get tweeting!
