It’s officially a year I finished my Beauty Pie challenge and was introduced to a lot of their products, a lot have been hits while some have been ok. Today’s post is a long-overdue review on their very popular Fruitizyme Five Minute Facial. I’ve had this since I started my challenge and been using it intermittently.
This mask is made with AHAs and pomegranate enzymes to leave the skin feeling super smooth and soft. It helps to prevent and reduce clogged pores leaving the skin clean and smooth.
It seems like BP have updated the formula of this mask to now include salicylic acids (BHA). The version I have doesn’t say it has BHA (on the tube) but the current version has BHAs written on it.
I’ve been using this mask very intermittently, not because it’s not effective but because it’s an acid mask which you use once a week or when needed. The mask has a gel texture which is easy to smooth on the skin. It also has some grit, very fine granules that don’t feel harsh on the skin when rinsing off (it’s quite easy to wash off too). The mask offers two types of exfoliation: chemical exfoliation from the acids and physical exfoliation from the grit. The mask doesn’t sting or ‘burn’ and I haven’t experienced any irritation.
I usually use this in prep for an event or when my skin needs a little boost. Before rinsing, I focus scrubbing (with gentle pressure) on my tzone and chin areas – it’s usually where I get clogged pores. My skin is left smooth and soft.
This is a gentle acid-based mask in comparison to a few that I have tried. BP doesn’t state the acid content on the product or online but I really wish they would. It’s a nice to use acid mask, which is effective and doesn’t sting the skin plus you get quick results in a short time.
This reminds me of the Pixi Peel n Polish Mask although that is more gritter and a thicker consistency. If you a member of BP then this would be a dupe in terms of price, if you are not a member, Pixi’s mask works out much cheaper.
In short this is a nice mask and I like it but it’s not a Holy Grail game changing product for me, probably because I have used a lot of similar products which I like better. I don’t think it’s worth the £60 for non-members though but at its member price, it’s a good product.
