Affordable way to tame oily skin and acne
Affordable way to tame oily skin and acne
Some acne honesty: Just want to say first, that when I was seriously struggling with acne after going off birth control I know this helped, BUT this wasn’t a product that actually cured my acne. I think this mask is great and is an affordable way to treat oily skin and shrivel up blemishes, but for me it provided more short term relief. Just wanted to put that out there and be honest. I would describe this mask as a mini detox for your skin. Anytime I’m feeling like my skin needs a pick-me-up (feeling congested, noticing some blackheads or see a blemish starting to form). And I do see results almost instantly after using the mask. The good: + The salicylic acid does help tame clogged pores, acne and keep excess oils at bay. You will notice a difference almost immediately after and the next morning. + Doesn’t irritate the skin. + Provides some mild exfoliation, which leaves the skin smooth but not irritated. + AFFORDABLE. Gotta love it. + Easily accessible in Canada. We have a couple stores here where we can get the Ordinary products. Or you could just order from Sephora. + While the mask does harden after about 8 minutes, it doesn’t crack or get uncomfortable. + My skin feels clean after but not too tight or “squeaky”. The not so good: - I find the benefits to be fairly short-term (days / a week). - This won’t magically make your pores or acne go away. But it definitely helps! Worth it? Totally! It’s affordable, does its job and gives me an excuse to put on a face mask and watch a million YouTube videos. Would I repurchase? Yes, especially since it’s so affordable. PS The pic was supposed to be a play off of “mask and chill”... I tried 😅🧖🏼‍♀️
