My skin has always been an issue for me. As a teenager it was always spotty and a nightmare to get under control. As an adult the spots are less but the under-skin spots and blackheads are un-moveable. I’ve tried everything from blackhead strips, daily exfoliating and deep pore cleansers and none have worked for me.
I came across the L’Oreal facemasks on Amazon when I was ordering some sheet face masks and I thought I’d give them a go, they’d gotten really good reviews and they weren’t massively expensive. I brought two, the 3 Pure Clays and Charcoal Detox Mask and the Smooth Sugar Clear Kiwi Face and Lip Scrub.
Before using the face mask I took off my make up with a the Simple Face Wash, patted my face dry and then applied the detox mask with a foundation brush. It only took about five/ten minutes to dry and it also didn’t dry making my face feel tight. I rinsed it off with warm water and then used the Sugar Scrub.
The detox mask is really good and I strongly recommend it, a little goes a long way with this too so I can see it lasting a long time, even if I use it twice a week I think this pot will last me a couple of months. It doesn’t feel harsh on the skin which considering I have fairly sensitive skin, is a good thing.
The Sugar Scrub however I found harsher on the skin. I’m not sure if maybe I was being particularly heavy handed or not but it felt rather rough on the skin. It did work wonders on my black heads though and got rid of a fair few. I finished it off with a black head strip to grab hold of any last little black heads. I’m super happy with the results from these and their now firmly put in my weekly skin care routine.
