Is This the Best Ever Organic Face Mask?

If like me you’re serious about megawatt glowing skin then the quest for the perfect serum/mask/moisturiser can be a long one.

Add into the mix a preference for natural and organic ingredients and the search can get even more complicated.

So when I came across Kypris Beauty earlier this year – with its emphasis on organic, sustainable, high-quality ingredients (as well as some of the prettiest glass packaging I have ever seen) – I was keen to check it out.

 


Kypris Beauty

Founded by businesswoman and chemist Chase Polan, Kypris was named after the honorary title the inhabitants of Cyprus gave to the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite… and it seems a fitting name for a brand whose focus is firmly on natural beauty.

Out of a line of products containing cleansers, antioxidant serums and body oils, it was the masks that I was most drawn to in my perpetual quest for glowing skin.

Kypris Glow Philtre Exfoliating Mask

Although I have tried all three of Kyrpis’s masks, including Deep Forest Clay Mask and Cerulean Soothing Hydration Recovery Mask, a vivid blue hydrating gel mask, and loved them all, it is the acid-based Glow Philtre Refining Mask that has become one of my all-time favourites.

With a jelly-like texture that is so much fun to work with, as well as a beautiful, delicate citrus scent which smells just like orange blossom (that would be the Neroli), it’s the immediate glowing results that have me most impressed.

On the skin

Firstly, yes, this is expensive…eye wateringly so.

But actually, I find I only need the tiniest amount (slightly bigger than pea-sized) because the jelly texture makes it spread extremely well; and this makes each use similar to the price of a sheet mask.

This mask is ridiculously fast-drying- great if you don’t like overly-damp products on your face but bad if you don’t like the slick-backed-eyebrows look so I suggest avoiding that area.

But while on, pomegranate enzymes gently exfoliate, while Silver Ear Mushroom extract hydrates. Glow Philtre also contains Sea Kelp, a personal favourite for softening and hydrating.

The result is a very impressive glow, softer skin, and a more even-looking complexion (and a very happy me).

 

What other people had to say

One customer on the Kypris website called this mask “truly magical”, saying “This mask is a miracle worker! It goes on so light and smooth and once rinsed off you cannot believe how magically it transforms your skin.

“The glow is off the charts and my skin looks and feels like I just had a professional facial. Cannot live without!”

While another said “This is a gorgeous mask that gently exfoliates the skin. My skin felt really soft, hydrated, and smooth after just one use! Not only that, it gives you a natural glow.

“This mask would be great before special occasions or events.”

The takeaway

I initially wasn’t sure if I was going to like this beyond the beautiful packaging and fragrance, purely because the price tag is so hefty. I have to say I really do love this though.

Great for: A lit-from-within radiance that rivals any peel or Vitamin C product.

Not-so-great for: Budget beauty, as this isn’t cheap.

Kypris’s Glow Philtre Refining Mask is $105 for 1.7 oz/ 46 ml, Kypris US
