Review: Nügg Face Masks

Sunday, 21 June 2015
I have officially found my favourite face mask for my frustrating dry skin; Nügg! These amazing little masks come in little individual pods for all different skin concerns and effects although they all seemed to be very much targeted at those with dryer skin, finally giving us a decent alternative to the overwhelming majority of clay masks which can be very drying. If you have dry skin and like a good pamper sesh' you definitely need to check these babies out!
I have never been one for using a lot of face masks, mostly because a lot of the ones I have tried in the past have left my skin really dry and tight. Some of them even burned the drier parts of my face and I had to wash them off straight away. While I definitely do still like the refining qualities of the Mario Badescu Flower and Tonic mask, which has been my go to for a while, these Nügg masks come out heads and shoulders above the rest and leave me with skin so soft and moisturised I literally can't stop touching it. I could even use my Nars Sheer Glow afterwards which I had to retire previously because it didn't sit too well with my really dry skin.

All of the masks are a cloudy white gel consistency but they all have different active ingredients. I would certainly classify these as masks for normal to very dry skin so the oilier ladies might still want to stick to clay masks that absorb that excess oil. If you are dry like me though, they are an absolute godsend! This cute little pack of four can be purchased from Priceline for $13.99 though unfortunately, they don't seem to be available online yet because they are a relatively new release. For those of you in the US and Canada, they can also be purchased from the Nügg Beauty online store singly or in various packs, including 5-packs of the same mask for when you find your favourite. Each pod contains a generous 10mL which I find is more than enough for two treatments so make sure you have a little container to put the excess in so you don't waste it.

Nügg Face Mask Soothing
With active ingredients like shea butter and chamomile extract, this one is particularly targeted at calming aggravated or sensitive skin. Shea butter provides amazing moisturisation for even the most sensitive faces while chamomile extract is great for soothing and inflammation or redness.
Recommend for: aggravated troubled skin, especially for those with lots of redness.

Nügg Face Mask Exfoliating
This mask was actually my least favourite, not of course that it is bad, but just because it was least suited to my skin and did have a slightly stronger smell. This was also the only one that ever so slightly stung my skin but I know that is just because I have ridiculously dehydrated skin. If you have normal to oilier skin, this one would be best for you. It has tiny little exfoliating beads too so unlike the others you are meant to massage this in first and then leave it on. Even though it did sting my dry skin a little bit initially, when I took it off it still left my skin much softer and more moisturised than before so I would still very much recommend it. Recommended for: clearing congested skin, not for oversensitive or irritated skin.

Nügg Face Mask Hydrating
This one is specifically formulated dehydrated skin so it is right up my alley. Formulated with camellia seed oil and spirulina extract, which are two ingredients I'm less familiar with, this mask was amazing at leaving my skin really soft and hydrated which lasts for the rest of the week. It was seriously amazing and drastically changed my skin texture. I'm basically obsessed with this little pink pod of awesome!
Recommend for: dry, flaky skin.

Nügg Face Mask Revitalizing
This one is definitely something different! With peppermint oil and menthol, it actually feels really cool and soothing on the face without being uncomfortable. This mask is specially formulated to revitalise (duh!) and plump up tired and dull looking skin which is great for me. This mask is an absolute winner and is great to put on after a long hard day.
Recommended for: dull, tired and dehydrated skin.

While all of these masks are targeted at slightly different skin concerns (the pink and blue ones were best for me) they are all very hydrating and lovely to use. I loved the soft, silky effects of every single one of these masks and will definitely be picking up more of these little packs. In fact, I'm already onto my second. I also recommend, because these aren't clay masks that run the risk of leaving your skin dehydrated if you leave them on beyond the recommended time, leave these hydration masks on for as long as you can. I usually put mine on at the start of my mani-pedi/Netflix session and keep them on for at least an hour which leaves my skin so crazy soft!

Will you be trying out some of these masks? Do you have any other mask recommendations for really dry and dehydrated skin? Let me know below in the comments.

Stay Rosy.

  1. Love that you mentioned you think these aren't appropriate for oily skin! That definitely would've been quite problematic for me haha, I don't need anymore oil! x

    1. I don't think they would be bad for oily skin but if you need to absorb excess oil a clay mask would be better.
