Review: Elemis Fruit Active Rejuvenating Mask

Disclosure:  This was a PR sample.

For me, masks fall into two categories.  Those which don't really have much of an instant effect, but that help to maintain healthy skin, and those which don't really do much long term, but give a quick, visible immediate result.  Neither type is better or worse; I use the former type for weekly maintenance, and turn to the latter type before a special occasion.

Elemis' Fruit Active Rejuvenating Mask claims to restore "the glow to dulled complexions".  It's sold as a pick-me-up, perfect as a pre-occasion treat, and for me it definitely delivers.  With extracts of strawberry and kiwi in a base that contains kaolin (clay), the mask is a medium thickness white cream which spreads easily over the face.  Left on for fifteen minutes, I found that it left my skin looking much more even and bright, and feeling ultra smooth.  The scent is quite subtle; slightly dessert-y, and only a little bit fruity, it's rather non-offensive.

But anyway - on to some before and after photos, after the jump.

While the effects aren't staggering, I think there's an improvement in brightness, evenness and clarity in my skin, and I'll definitely be using this product before any upcoming occasions.  At £26 for a 75ml tube, this isn't the cheapest of products, but given that you need a relatively small squirt, I'm expecting to still be using the same tube in three or four months time.  If you'd like to try it yourself, you can get it from TimeToSpa, Elemis' official online stockist.
