features & benefits:

I said in the other post that I’ve been needing a bit TLC and skin care is a good area to start in. Something that claims to provide the effects of a facial in a minute is always worth a go. I’ve been using this product in the mornings and evenings alternatively. It feels a bit decadent to be putting a face treatment on first thing in the morning but it really is a rather lovely way to start the day. Likewise, if you’ve had a bit of a stressful day or just fancy a bit of quick pampering this is perfect in the evening too.
The product itself is a rich gel like paste that smells of sea salt and lavender. I was a bit worried about it having sea salt in it, I envisaged it to be harsh and stripping on my skin but it really isn’t. I was also concerned that it’d be too concentrated given that it is supposed to work in a minute but again it isn’t. In fact I find it to be really soothing, as long as you don’t go over the minute, it can get a bit irritating.
Philosophy’s The Great Mystery One-Minute Daily Facial is applied to cleansed skin. The product is translucent until it is massaged into the skin, this niftily turns it white, and then it’s left for a minute. And that’s it! Which is perfect for me, I like quick treatments that provide good results. The paste is quite thick so it can be tricky to remove. I found its best removed with a face cloths, like most treatments really.
So, does it work? I think so. My skin definitely looks brighter, softer and hydrated. I stopped using it for a couple of days to see if there was any difference and it really was noticeable, well I noticed it anyway. There’s no feeling of uncomfortable tightness after use and my skin feels deeply cleansed. Also, I felt this helped control my oily t-zone throughout the day.
It’s £18.50 from QVC.
