Lately my skin has been misbehaving (Aunt Flo arrived) and I decided to make myself a solid skin care routine which I have written out and stuck to my bathroom cupboard. I use a skincare mask three times a week and it is working wonders for me right now! The three I have been using are praised within the blogging community and I have to say I absolutely love them!
Soap and Glory: The Fab Pore Facial Peel.
My skin gets congested very quickly and this has been keeping those horrible spots at bay, I use this once a week… on a Tuesday to be exact and my skin is so baby soft after using it. I take a grape sized amount onto the palm of my hand and spread it all over my face until the little blue beads that are in there dissolve, it doesn’t burn in any way unless my skin is broken, I should really learn to stop popping my spots! I leave it for around 15 minutes, read a book or something then remove it with a facial sponge. A facial sponge is a quick and effective way of removing any mask as it lightly exfoliates as well. My face looks fresh, healthy and my pores look lovely and clean!
I give it a 9/10, one mark off as I cant feel it working.
Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask.
I use this mask once a week when I need a bit of freshening up. It is a very lightweight mask, not like the thick ones that I am used to so I feel that it doesn’t do as much to draw out any impurities, it smells a lot like clay which it should do as it is clay based. Not the best smelling mask, but it really does work! I use this when my skin is acting up for around 20 minutes and it leaves it feeling very clean and clear, any spots that I do have look so calm and redness is reduced so I don’t have to use much concealer. I remove it once again with a facial sponge that comes with the Deep Cleansing Mask – a great perk to get with a great product.
I give this an 8/10 as the smell isnt very pleasant and it has a very thin consistency.
Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque
I bought this mask quite a while ago off ebay as I had heard great things from it when people had any break outs or any pesky blackheads to deal with. It is very cheap with the most expensive price I have found is around £7. The Mint Julep Masque has a lovely thick consistency and a thin layer is all I need to feel like it is really doing its job. It feels very fresh on the face and it dries to give you a cakey face, but the great thing about it is that you can actually see all of the impurities getting sucked out of your pores. In around 15 minutes I wash it off and have baby soft skin. I also use it on individual spots daily until it dries up and disappears which only takes a few days!
A fantastic Mask that deserves 10/10 because in my opinion it ticks all the boxes!
