I love mud masks for detoxifying the skin. They help clear up acne, minimize pores, exfoliate, fight the signs of aging and give the skin a deep cleanse.
Now, imagine that mud mask is a turned into a sheet mask. That is exactly what Patchology did with their SmartMud Detox Mask. It’s a mud mask without the mess… well, at least most of the mess. LOL. It is a little messy with application because the mud on the sheet, but much better than taking it straight out of a jar.
The Verdict: This 2 piece mud mask is another Pathology winner! Using volcanic ash sourced from South Korea, this mask left my skin deeply cleansed and glowing.
Toner… It’s the often forgotten step in a skincare routine that can make a huge difference in the appearance of your skin. It removes the remaining dirt your cleanser missed, levels out your skin’s pH balance, can help hydrate your skin and even allow the products you use afterwards to absorb better.
As far as toners go, I have been using California Pure Naturals Clarifying Toner for the past month. It has their signature Blackberry Antioxidant Complex that brightens and energizes the skin along with Black Tea, Rose Geranium and Cucumber to soothe the skin, minimize pores and even out your skin tone.
When using this Clarifying Toner, my skin has a refreshing tingling feeling and it leaves my face feeling extra cleansed.
Happy Face Mask Friday! So ever since I was a little girl at the San Diego Zoo, I have loved pandas. My sorority’s mascot was a panda. Even my oldest daughter’s nursery was panda themed (and that was before you could find panda room decor… thank goodness Etsy was an option!), so when I saw this SNP Panda Brightening Sheet Mask, I knew I had to try it. Plus, with all this cold and gloomy winter weather, my skin has been looking a little dull.
This Panda mask is super fun and easy to use. After cleansing your face, apply this mask, leave it on for 10-20 minutes, massage the remaining serum into your face afterwards and your done.
But what did I think of this super cute mask? While my skin didn’t necessarily appear brighter, it was very soothing and refreshing and I would use it again.
