This Works No Wrinkle Time Dose Mask

We like masks that act fast. 10 minutes (or less) for brighter skin. But this new offering from longstanding favourite mostly-natural brand This Works lets you choose how long to leave it on skin, for different results. We've tried the instantly skin-brightening 10-minute option, and can report that even though it features fruit acids in the blend - bilberry, sugar cane, sugar maple, lemon and orange, as well as naturally exfoliating prickly pear - it didn't irritate our sensitive skin, but left it bright and really plumped-up.

Leave it on for 20 minutes, though, and they promise that the fruit acids will work to exfoliate dead skin cells, for even more enhanced brightness and skin smoothness.

If you really want to go for it, though, apply the mask as an overnight treatment (use just a light layer, as with a normal moisturiser, rather than the slightly thicker slathering recommended for 10/20-minute treatments). We'd counsel caution if you've a touchy skin, but really: even after 10 minutes the results were very impressive.

In our case? Less was more. And we like that.
