Don't let your skin dry out in the summer heat. Keep it revitalised and glowing with a deep-moisturising mask

Jurlique Moisture Replenishing Mask (HK$420/ 40ml) 5/10

This clay mask, infused with chamomile and daisy extracts, is good at tightening pores, but doesn't have the moisturising effect as described.

APIVITA Express Gold With Prickly Pear (K$360/8mlx12) we love it!

This feels so good - and has a wonderful, clean smell about it. It glides on smoothly and even though it feels thick, it does not look thick. Aloe juice, lavendar, shea butter and wheat germ are a winning formula.

Aveda Intensive Hydrating Masque (HK$420/ 150ml) 7/10

As with all Aveda products, the natural ingredients make this great for sensitive skin. Definitely more suited to dehydrated, rather than dry, skin, but it leaves your face feeling soft and refreshed.

Chanel Hydramax + Active Moisture Mask (HK $435/75ml) 9/10

It does what it's supposed to do and is worth the price. It boosts the hydration of the face and feels soft and soothing. It soaks in quickly and has a nice subtle perfume. Overall, a good product.

H2O+ Night Oasis overnight moisture lock (HK$390/50ml) 7/10

This night-time moisturiser has a beautiful sea-blue colour and a fresh scent. It contains a sea mineral complex, which helps to keep your skin cool and hydrated all night. The only drawback is that it leaves a sticky feeling on your face.
