A self-heating facial mask used during shower?

Pixi Beauty has added 14 new products to their very popular Skintreats series, including their first-ever Boost Sheet Masks, a pH-balancing gel, and a solid, multi-use moisturiser that can be used on face, lips, body, and hair.
All the innovative products sound extremely exciting but the one that intrigued us the most: the In-Shower Steam Facial.

This is a self-heating cleansing mask that is to be left on while you’re in a shower or bath. Its self-heating action is designed to open pores so as to improve the effects of this mask. It contains acacia collagen and peptides to retain moisture, provide a plumping effect, nourish skin, deeply cleanse it, and detoxify it.
Squeeze out an appropriate amount and slather it all over face. Leave it on while you take your shower or bath, and then rinse off.

I typically use a mask after my shower, so the idea of using it while showering is very new to me.
⭐Texture - My first impression of the product wasn’t the best one. I found the texture of the gel extremely thick and sticky. Because of its heavy texture, I had to apply more product than expected to cover my entire face and neck.
⭐Warming - And then the magic happened: the product warmed up almost immediately after it touched my skin. The warm sensation felt very comforting and it sustained even as I continued to massage it all over my face.
⭐Can’t wash hair - I left it on my face while I started to shower. But I realised that I had to skip washing my hair or wash my hair later if I wanted to keep the mask on. It was a slight inconvenience but I guess if you don’t wash your hair every day, you can schedule masking on no-wash days.
⭐Post-shower - After my shower, I rinsed off the mask and was surprised that the sticky gel had transformed to a nourishing oil that could be washed off effortlessly.
⭐Results - I dried off and touched my face: it felt hydrated, smooth, soft, and plump. I looked into the mirror and noticed more clarity and radiance – something that I really welcomed especially after a tiring day.
⭐So should you get it? I’d say the in-shower feature is a bit of a gimmick because using it during shower doesn’t really save much time nor effort for me. However, if you disregard the in-shower feature, it’s still overall a good mask to use. The self-heating effect – even if it doesn’t open pores as promised – provides a pampering sensation that I enjoyed. Most importantly, there’s a noticeable difference in my skin after using it and I see it as a good treat for my skin after a tiring day.

    After reading this, I must have this Pixi in-shower heating mask. I usually do a mask after showering so this will be a nice way to change up my routine and try something new. I'm really excited about the warming effect. I can't wait to buy this and test it out for myself. Thanks for the great review.

    wow great review and breakdown of this new product. I often will put a clay mask on before shower and after washing hair cleanse off . Will look into this product soon when I run low on masks in a jar/tube.

    Self heating? How hot? How does your skin feel afterwards? What are the benefits of the heating mask?

    i love this and stuff you can use in the shower while you do all your other things. I love that its a warming type of facial treatment. The aftermath sounds great too of how it makes your face feel. I'd love to give this a try.

    I have been hesitant about tring this product. I have had it in my cart several times. I was sceptical if it really worked. After your post I think I'm going to give it a try. Thanks for a great review.

    This sounds great. Something I would enjoy more in a steamy bath. depending on how long it is meant to be left on. You do best washing while the pores are open so if it works fast in the shower is fine...maybe while your conditioner is sinking into your hair. We all think what should I do for 3 minutes...lol
