Face Masks: tried, tested and approved!





When it comes to skincare and looking after my skin, one thing I never miss in my routine is applying face masks! I love doing face masks, sometimes I even double mask (mask followed by another mask).

I am currently using the May Lindstrom Problem Solver, Chikyu Bamboo Charcoal mask and the Vered Organic Botanicals Clarifying Detox mask.

Each mask has its own unique properties that help clarify oily, combination skin.

I’ll give you a break down of each mask: The Problem Solver is a clay based formulation fused with powerful spices, herbs and essential oils that not only help oily skin but are beneficial for dry or normal skin types too.

What I love about this mask is that is really does solve your skins inflammation and aids in temporarily clarifying it. The other great benefit of the mask is the formulation. The use of Rhassoul clay plays a big role in the benefits of the masks. This clay originates from Morocco and is full of minerals, it is great for dry skin and oilier skin types. The clay helps unblock pores and improve skin clarity as well as aiding in skin elasticity, so it is also great for anti aging skin needs. Overall the masks soothes inflamed skin, helps draw out impurities and aids in clarifying the skins texture. I have been using this mask for a year and half and my skin loves it!

The Chikyu mask is specially formulated for oily to acne prone skin types. The main ingredients of the mask include nourishing oils that won’t strip your skin but deliver moisture and cleanse the pores. It also includes ingredients such asΒ Refined Volcanic Ash, Colloidal Sulfur, Bamboo Activated Charcoal and Bamboo Silk, which all help oily/acne prone skin types. Activated Charcoal is amazing for oily skin it draws out impurities and can hold 1000x its own weight! Colloidal Sulfur is a natural occurring mineral that heals pimples/acne and is anti bacterial. The Volcanic Ash is high in minerals that aid in repairing the skin. As these ingredients help clarify the skin the use of the oils deliver moisture so that your skin is not stripped and won’t Β compensate by producing more oil. The synergy between charcoal and jojoba oil allow the skin to be matt but not over stripped. This mask really does deliver, and it works better when you leave it on for 30 minutes. This mask really does suck the gunk out of my pores and is also great for clearing your pores. Your complexion is clear after this mask.

Last but not least the Vered Organic Botanicals clarifying mask. This mask is also specially formulated to help oily skin types. However it also works as a great clarifying exfoliant. I have been using this more as a face scrub rather than a mask. In my opinion it works better as a scrub than a mask on my skin. The hand blended formula is also full natural herbal ingredients that are highly anti bacterial and anti inflammatory.

The main ingredient is black walnut, this nut is turned into a powder and is anti bacterial as well as being rich in vitamins and minerals. The black walnut in combination with turmeric, chickweed and white willow bark detoxify the skin without stripping it. This mask is full of natural herbs that help detoxify, clarify the skin. Overall this mask works best a detoxifying boost to your skin care and also works as a great face scrub in the shower!
