Beauté Pacifique Deep Pore Cleansing Mask Review

Pros:

Good mask option for girls and guys with problem skin.

Cons:

Doesn‘t clean out my pores.

More:

Beauté Pacifique Deep Pore Cleansing Mask is a white creamy clay mask that gives you fresh looking skin after use. It has a mild fruity scent which is nice and understated. It apparently has a unisex appeal as my boyfriend has used up half the tube! As for deep pore cleansing, I haven’t ever found clay masks particularly ground breaking, and this one isn’t either. They just can’t do the same as scrubs or medical products but they can reduce shine and astringe pore-size. This one has an added calming cooling effect on the skin which feels great, and isn’t too drying unlike many clay masks. I also like the fact that it’s white so it doesn’t make a huge mess around the sink when I splash it off. The mask isn’t too harsh on sensitive or acne-prone skin, so it’s also a good home-spa option for delicate winter skin.

Kiehl’s Algae Mask Review

Pros:

See a difference after 10 minutes (no need to walk around wearing a mask half of your evening).

Cons:

The price.

More:

Some parts of Europe suffer from heatwaves, my part of Europe is going through autumn. I am serious: it rains constantly and it is very cold. I have packed my sandels and summer dresses away and replaced them with cosy sweaters and tea. It is a bit sad to give up on summer before august has even come, therefore I am comforting myself with my favourite skin care obsession: masks. Those of you who have followed my beauty journey on this blog, know that I have an extensive collection of them and can never say no to a new purchase.

This mask from american Kiehls is a bit pricy, but It lasts for ages since you only need a small amount per application. What I really like about this mask is that you can see a difference already after ten minutes. So you do not have to walk around wearing it for ages (and pray for a result). It is sticky, but worth it. Also it contains Algae, Green tea, Calendula..all yummy ingredients for the skin. It promises to make your skin soft and smooth, and actually I think it keeps that promise well. My skin feels very hydrated after usage.

As a conclusion this is a good long-term investment, it you can stand the stickiness.

Review of Rudolph Care Facial Scrub Mask

 

Pros:

Leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated

Cons:

Skin feels a little oily after use. Also, some skin types are not good with scrub masks

More:

I have said it before: I’m a fan on Rudolph Care. I love things that are organic, and I love products without harmful ingredients or chemicals. Read a little more on the Rudolph products here.

The Acai Facial Scrub Mask from Rudolph is no exception. The mask claims to rejuvenate and hydrate, and I definitely feel that my skin is hydrated after using the mask.

The mask is a creamy scrub mask, with a high degree of good oils, amongst them is shea butter, olive and coconut oil. Pulverised abricot kernels exfoliates the skin in a gentle way.

When I feel that my skin needs extra mousture, I cleanse my skin, leave a damp cloth on my skin for a little while and then apply the Rudolph Acai Scrub Mask, that I gently massage into my skin. After removing the Scrub Mask, my skin feels soft and hydrated again

This mask is especially good if your skin needs extra care, for example during winter time, when cold weather has dried out your skin, or during summertime, when the sun and bathing has left their marks.

The product is in the expensive end, and there’s only 100 ml in the standard tube from Rudolph. However, you only need to apply a little every time, so that it lasts longer. Still, this is the reason for only three stars in “value for money”.

Review of Estee Lauder Hydra Complete Multi-Level Moisture Gel Mask

sku_851069267_1

Pros:

The alluring gel texture of this mask makes you dream of loads of hydration.

Cons:

I see no difference before and after use.

More:

Another week another mask I have wasted my money on…This one started by having me at hello: I love gels, they just trick you thinking that gel equals hydration. This mask is no different: it is a gel, and it smells a bit of melon, what is not to like? But once you use it a couple of times you realise that yes – it makes you skin soft, but you still look just as tired before and after use. There is absolutely no difference in the appearance of your skin.

Estee Lauder also promises a cooling and soothing sensation, for me the sensation was mostly sticky and disappointing.

Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask To Clear Pores Review

Pros:  

Makes your face feel softer.

Cons:  

Those blackheads are still there despite me using this mask 1-2 times a week for a month. No change at all.

More: 

I have big scary blackheads on my nose and forehead, and I use two strategies against them: to not look in the mirror too closely and try all products out there promising to make them go away. This mask made my face feel very clean and soft, but It didn’t  reduce the amount of visible blackheads on my nose, despite me applying  a generous layer and using it 1-2 times a week for a month. Also after taking off the mask my skin felt very sensitive, like it was about to break out. The mask is very easy to apply since it has a very light consistency, differing it from other clay masks. It smells ok too, and to remove it is not a struggle, which is a plus. But Im still left looking for help against those pores, if you have any tips please email me!
