I am always ranting about my skin, and how sensitive it can be. It is quick to react to just about everything, and even though I cleanse my face twice daily and use masks often, it still has a habit of breaking out!
I was recommended this mask from Soap & Glory, a brand I really love, and I am delighted with the results I see from using it regularly. This mask can be used either once or twice a week depending on your needs, I usually use it twice a week as this helps to battle any breaks outs I may be experiencing, while using it once a week is good maintenance (clearing our pores, break out prevention etc). I am now moving from using it twice a week to once a week as the condition of my skin has much improved.
This amazing product works in a couple of different ways:
- The micro beads smooth and polish the skin
- Beta-Hydroxy acid (salicylic and lactic acids blended) fight spots and unclog pores and reduces inflamation
- mushroom extracts tighten pores
- kaolin microclay soaks up excess sebum
Hope I got all of that right, science was never my best subject! Basically this one mask is performing several pore shrinking, spot fighting and smothening actions and once, and it only takes about 15 minutes out of my day, usually twice a week. That is for the deep clean, but you can also leave it on for 5 minutes, if you are looking for a quick upkeep on your face.
If you have used any of the Soap and Glory products before, you will know that they smell amazing, this one in particular smells fresh, slightly minty and very refreshing. I can feel it tingle when I apply it on skin, and after 15 minutes when I wash away the mask, I feel as though my skin is glowing, deeply cleansed, soft and smooth. On breakout areas, redness will usually be reduced, but nothing will take down a spot in 15 minutes.
(I still don’t know how people apply masks PERFECTLY, mine are always a little messy, but its gets the job done 😉 also note how I have NO EYEBROWS, need to book in for another HD appointment ASAP)
This product is so affordable, and lasts for AGES! I would recommend it to anyone who feels as though their skin needs a pick me up, and that their pores are easily clogged.
This mask can be purchased from Boots (shop here).
