Good morning world!
I’ve been trying out some of the little samples I bought from Naturisimo and last night I used Suki transformative purifying mask.
This is supposed to be ‘the ultimate stress reducer for your worst skin problems and as your go to overnight spot weapon’. That description sounded like a winner for me, but was it all just cleverly worded statements to draw you in? The sample came in a little 1ml sachet and cost me 50p, the 1ml packet was enough for a single use. The product was very thin and watery, and I was a little worried but it dried very quickly and felt soft on the skin. I couldn’t feel a sensation as I have with other masks, but that’s not generally a sign something is working, or that it’s good for your skin. I left the mask on overnight, hoping to make it my ‘go to overnight spot weapon’. When I woke up I washed the mask off with cold water, I didn’t notice much of a difference, my skin was softer but my blemishes and spots were no better than after using Superdrug’s Deep Action range.
So what are the benefits of this product? Suki uses salicylic acid obtained from white willow, supposedly a highly concentrated formation which addresses problematic skin without drying the skin. The purifying aspect comes from the addition of kaolin clay which brings impurities out of the pores. I have listed the full ingredients of the product below, taken from their website.

While the sample I bought cost me a measly 50p and was worth a try, I wouldn’t advice buying the full product. Maybe it takes a few uses to really see results but for the price of the full product (£48.95 for 30ml) I would find something cheaper which probably works just as well. Especially since 30 packets of the 1ml sample would cost only £15, compared to the bottle itself, something I find confusing. Some of Suki’s range is cruelty free, they state that the beeswax that comes in some of their products is cruelty free but beeswax is something which I am trying to avoid. At the end of the day, the decision is up to you.
Anyway, I will be sticking to my usual spot treatment, and I will be trying out Superdrug masks with reviews coming in due course.
Hope you have an amazing day,
