I’m a little late with this post, and for that I am terribly sorry!
Now let’s not waste any time and get right into Day 5 of The 7 Day Mask Challenge. I preach it regularly and I have throughout this challenge already, I LOVE Multi-Masking. Being able to use multiple masks in one session and benefit from the results of multiple active ingredients simultaneously is a great way to maximize on time, and usage. For Day 3 I chose to speak about my favourite combo and now we’ll talk a little more about my second go-to.
Deep pore cleansing is extremely important at keeping our pores minimized and sebum levels low, limiting the possibility of a breakout. And who likes breakouts?
However sometimes we may find that a deep pore cleansing mask may be slightly drying, but that doesn’t mean that all are. Regardless it certainly doesn’t hurt to re-hydrate and re-fresh the skin afterwards, which is why I use a combo of…
Here’s what the retailers have to say:
- Formulated with Amazonian White Clay to gently draw out oil, dirt and toxins from clogged pores,
- The addition of Oatmeal and Aloe Vera helps to soothe.
From the manafacturers:
- Lightweight gel mask formulated with hand-picked Calendula Flower Petals and Aloe Vera bursts into a refreshing surge of cooling hydration,
- Upon application, dry skin is instantly hydrated and smoothed,
- Whith continued use skin is revitalized for a healthy looking complexion.
If you’ve been following along with some of my mask posts you should definitely know how much I LOVE my Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque. I’ve mentioned how great of an addition it is to any Multi-Masking combo and even on its own as a refreshing treatment. It literally softens, hydrates and smoothes the skin with an insanely addictive Sweet Lemon smell.
Now despite my love for the above, let’s talk a little of the Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque now instead.
I said earlier that some deep pore cleansing masques dry-out the skin and that is one thing I do not find I experience when using the Kiehl’s mask. I love how clean and purified my skin looks post-usage, and how nicely the rest of my routine absorbs into my skin once I’ve washed it off. Despite it not being drying I would NOT suggest a deep pore cleansing mask like this one to someone who suffers from dry skin.
However if you are on the oiler side and prone to larger pores and/or blemishes, the Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque is certainly a sure-winner for your cause.
Unlike my week with Sheet Masks, as I begin to near the end of my week with Professional Masks I’ve noticed no negative changes in my skin but only positive ones. With Sheet Masks I had noticed a few random blemishes that had left me feeling uncomfortable and it was 100% a cause of overnourishment. So far these results reiterate Professional Masks being more appropriate for a normal-oily skin type…
… and I’m okay with that.
Tomorrow I’ll be back with another one of my favourite overnight masks, until then…
