I’ve been away for a while, and I’m set to catch up on all the facial masks I’ve missed.
Gawd the Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Charcoal Mask is the mask that just never ends! And it’s a small tube too. You’d think I’d just chuck it, considering the fact that I genuinely hate it.
But no, that would be wasteful. Instead I shall suffer for my stupidity.
The only way it has some use is by combining it with the Kicks vitamin C peeling pads. I imagine that it locks in the C vitamin, gives the skin a chance to absorb, and it’s an excuse to wash the face post peeling pads, because they do have a sticky residue.
So this is not a bad combo, it’s a way to use two products I’m not all that fond of.
Might be the mask I missed the most! The Body Shop Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask. This is such a lovely combination of clay and exfoliation. I usually use it for the exfoliating properties, but it’s the combination that makes it special. And they’ve stuck some glycerin in it. I do like it when they stick glycerin in things you put on your face. So far, if there’s glycerin in it, you can be sure that it will do you at very least some good.
Another double threat; an enzyme peel from Emma S. followed by Paula’s Choice Radiance Renewal Mask. The enzyme peel is a quick little mask, a minute is all it takes, the PC-mask I wear over night. If I was less cheap I’d just skip night cream and go for this every night. It does make your skin look radiant, or at least less like your actual 30+-year-old skin.
I’ve mentioned this mask before, the REN Clarimatte. It’s on the less cheap side, but worth every penny! If you’re concerned with pores, and like masks that will give your skin a good clean out, you’ll like this one.
That should do me for a while.
