REVIEW: GOOD THINGS FIVE MINUTE FACIAL

I bought the Five Minute Facial Face Mask by Good Things about a month ago, as seen in my haul post here. I've never tried Good Things before but there was a really good offer on so I went for it. I wanted to use it for a while before giving a review on it and now I've been using it for around 4/5 weeks so here goes..!





I've been using this once or twice a week since I got it; usually just when my skin feels a bit dry or is looking a bit dull.
The directions state to put a thin layer of the face mask all over the face after cleansing and after 5 minutes, use warm water to rinse off.
Obviously the product is called 'Five Minute Facial' so you'd expect it to work quickly and quickly it does! I'm not really in to face masks (though, I keep wanting to get them...) so this is really good if you don't want to sit around with clay or mud all over your face for an hour. The product has a sort of creamy clay texture to it and a little bit really does go a long way with it. Once it's all over the face, you can instantly feel it drying and after 5 minutes it generally is fully dry. However, I usually leave it for 10 minutes, sometimes longer, usually because I've got too caught up on YouTube!
I'll then use a muslin cloth and hot water to clean it off and just splash my face with cold water.

The product claims to make skin clearer, brighter and smoother. I don't feel like my skin looks any brighter with using this but to be honest, it isn't all the dull in the first place. As for making my skin clearer, I'm not entirely sure. My breakouts got a lot better but this last week or so they got worse again but I'm also using other products to help with that so I couldn't say if this was the product causing them.
Smooth skin, however... YES. When the mask is drying it feels like you getting a major facelift and then after it's washed off I just want to keep touching my face (which isn't a great idea) because it's just so soft!
Another thing I like about it is the smell. Once it's on the face you can't really smell anything but when you open the tube and are putting it on it smells incredible. It says it contains superfruit extracts of avocado and goji berry. I will be honest and say I don't know what either of these actually smell like but there is definitely a berry smell to it and it's so good!

Although I don't feel it's brightened my skin or cleared it up, I do really enjoy using this product and for the price it's definitely worth trying.

  1. love face masks, so i'm deffo gonna try this out.
    i normally use dead sea spa (which just makes everywhere including my face stink of sea weed) or stuff from avon (which is really gloopy and horrendous).

    just love the feel of my skin afterwards. :)
