Some people love a glass of wine, a good meal or even some exercise – I just want to pamper my skin and read beauty news.  To each their own I suppose.  But what I love even more than a regular mask, is a peel off mask – eek! So fun! And one that detoxifies and removes dirt and debris from my pores – double fun!!  I am new to the First Aid Beauty brand (check out their whole range here), and was excited when they sent over some products for me to test drive.  Naturally I can’t resist anything that will help me keep my hormonal and acne prone skin clear, so I jumped on trying the Skin Rescue Purifying Mask first.  Yes my pores were clean after, yes my skin was smoother and softer post masking, but the kicker for this was how easy it was to remove.  No pulling or irritation when I went to take it off, and it’s great at dealing with my stubborn t-zone shine.  If it’s already performing this well in the winter, I suspect it will become a summer staple.  Boom! I’m a skincare psychic.

Beauty Bits: Pore Cleansing Masks

| , , , ,

A clean pore is a happy pore.  And happy pores make for happy faces. It can be quite a challenge to keep pores clean with the amount of makeup and environmental stressors coming at them everyday, but I have found it easier than expected when I incorporate masks into my weekly routine.  Here is the current line up of pore cleansing masks I have in rotation:
1. Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque – If the results don’t win you over, the price certainly will. Typically under $5, this is one of the best beauty buys.  It tingles a bit when on, but it is great at leaving my skin feeling fresh and clean, while helping to minimize the appearance of pores.
2. Mario Badescu Drying Mask – Never met a Mario Badescu mask I didn’t love, and I don’t think I ever will.  Formulated with sulfur and calamine, this mask helps to dry up any blemishes and/or excess oil while healing it at the same time.  Even when using other hydrating or enzyme masks, I will spot treat certain areas with this and then use other masks on the remaining parts of my face. 
3. Origins Clear Improvement Mask – This was an impulse purchase in the check out line at Sephora, which can be quite the beauty gauntlet to get through.  Lightweight and easy to apply, it helps to clear up my skin without stripping it of excess oil or drying it out.
