Detoxifying Mask Off: Caudalie vs. Kypris
Sometimes, all you need is a good detoxifying mask. With my acne-prone skin, I’ve found that treating myself to a detoxifying mask at least once every 2 weeks really makes a difference in my skin’s overall tone, texture and clarity. Two of my favorite refining masks that get deep down into my pores when they’re clogged and draw out all of those acne-causing impurities are Caudalie’s Instant Detox Mask and Kypris Beauty’s Glow Philtre. They both make excellent additions to my nighttime skincare routine and do not irritate my sensitive, reactive skin. The good stuff: Caudalie’s Instant Detox Mask: This is your typical clay mask and acts like a vacuum to draw out excess oil and toxins and combat congestion. I ~may or may not~ have bought this mask after I saw Kourtney Kardashian uses it, but it’s also affordable ($39) and made with quality ingredients. Grape marc powerfully detoxifies, while pink clay and coffee absorb blackhead-causing dirt and excess sebum. Together with papaya enzymes, the mask fights off bacteria, reduces breakouts from forming and brightens the skin. While I love the mask for its detoxifying properties, one thing I will say is that this mask can be a little drying. While it’s doing its thing, it gets really stiff and uncomfortable but doesn’t feel stripped which is good. Kypris Beauty’s Glow Philtre: I recently discovered this brand after sampling their Clarifying Serum and loooooove it so much. The Glow Philtre contains a refining blend of pomegranate pith enzymes, thalassic extracts of sea fennel stem cells and sea algae to detoxify, brighten and soften the skin. It also silver ear mushroom, which delivers a hydrating boost to the skin. Its texture is unlike anything I’ve ever tried before – it’s almost gel-like but not quite. This really makes a difference in the smoothness of my skin and I’ve noticed that it clears the little whitehead pimples that I get from wearing my makeup/throughout the day right away.

Caudalie instant detox mask CAUDALIE - Instant Detox Mask The cream is pink and dries quickly on the face. When I washed it off after using it for 5-10 minutes, my pores didn't feel unclogged and my skin didn't seem any more delicate. 😐 Josie Maran Whipped Mud Mask JOSIE MARAN - Whipped Mud Mask Argan Hydrating and Detoxifying Treatment-Cucumber Aloe This mask contains tiny matte particles. It was mild on the skin, but the advertised moisturizing, firming, smoothing, and skin improvement effects were non-existent. 👎 Peter Thomas Roth maskPETER THOMAS ROTH - Hungarian Thermal Water Mineral-Rich Atomic Heat Mask The thick consistency makes it difficult to spread on the face. After washing it off, I could see my skin glowing. But as for moisturizing, anti-aging, and filling fine lines, I didn't feel any such effects. 😐 Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask Charlotte Tilbury - Goddess Skin Clay Mask This CT mask feels great on my face, is easy to apply, and doesn't dry out completely. It can really give the skin a smoother appearance and unclog pores. After washing it off, my face felt delicate and smooth. 😍 L’Oreal Multi-Masking Play Kit L'ORÉAL - Pure Clay Multi-Masking Face Mask Play Kit I've used all three of the masks but they did nothing for me besides having a strong earthy smell and they were even difficult to wash off.👎
Love love love this baby! I always break this beautiful mask out when my skin is all clogged up, feels dull, and I can see some acne either already on the surface or coming up. It smooths my face and just cleans out all of my gunk and pores it is a forever favorite mask of mine. Also smells good too kind of like old lady perfume which I do not mind with my masks. 5/5 would buy full size but it’s out of stock currently at my Sephora
PETER THOMAS ROTH - Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask when winter comes I usually get the inevitable breakout. Is it holiday stress or eating, the dryness, or just using heavy creams? I haven’t figured it out! I just started incorporating this mask into my weekly purifying routine to keep those breakouts down. About three weeks in, I have only had one pimple. I’m sure I can’t give all the credit to this mask but I do know it has played a big role in this improvement! It’s a cleansing blend of Irish Moor Mud, seaweed, volcanic ash, and charcoal in this really pretty smooth black texture. Most charcoal or mud masks I’ve used have found to be very drying but I actually had pretty hydrating effects from this. Which shocked me! There is a slight tingle upon application that I enjoy. Once rinsed, my skin feels cleaner, looks brighter and feels comfortably tight and bouncy. The cleansing effects of this mask are fantastic, it’s great to see unclogged pores and fewer pimples. I would recommend this to anyone with congested to even sensitive skin. Once I finish the two mini tubes I have I will purchase the full size. 5/5 stars!

I wanted to share with you my thoughts on this I' m From Honey Mask, which quickly has became my fave 🍯💛 I used it a few times now and I think I can already say something, what I like about it. As you see the texture is quite thick and caramel-like but it spreads on the skin very easily and unlike the raw honey, stays in place all the time and doesn't slide down. It smells a bit like a honey but not exactly, hard to tell - but for me it's quite pleasant 😊 . . But straight to the point - the results! I leave this on my face for about 45 min up to an hour and after washing off the skin is so smooth that I can't stop touching it 😆 This is the first wash off mask for me that gave me noticeable moistrue after one use. It leaves some kind of film on the skin so not sure if everyone would like it - I gently wipe my face with a cotton pad + toner, this way the skin stays moistruized but I don't feel any film on top of it 😊 This mask didn't clog my pores or break me out, instead it calmed my redness and soothed the skin. I'm curious how it will work in a long term, but for now I like it very much 💛 I will definitely try other masks from this brand! Now I have my eyes on the rice one 🍚
Glam Glow - Super Mud ✨
The product: The Glam Glow Super Mud mask is a charcoal based mask that is designed to clear skin and treat those unwelcoming red spots. This mask does not strip or dry out your own skin of it’s natural oils either. Not to mention it is the #1 best selling charcoal mask on the market right now... 😏🏅 My impressions: Super Mud has become my go-to weekly mask when I need that ‘spa getaway’ night. It honestly works so well and does not irritate the skin which makes it perfect for all skin types. I’ve struggled with blemishes and pores for my whole life and with super mud, I have seen such instantaneous results! The smell is slightly minty, which I love as it is not too strong! The mask is also super cooling and a thin layer can go a long way! The texture also has small beads which help softly exfoliate the skin and attack those pimples! 🎯 Considering it is a charcoal mask, it does not strip the skin of its natural oils or dry it out either. The overall process is super simple and washes off well! How it worked for Combination Skin with Acne: Did not dry out my skin and the size of blemishes and redness decreased tremendously with the first use. Super mud caused the rough skin to lift and essentially brightened the darkened areas caused by this! 🌟 Likes: Super Mud has tiny beads that help exfoliate the skin, which get rid of dead skin cells and also means you don’t need to invest in another product specified for that! The mask also dries within 10 mins, rather taking longer which is really nice, especially when needing a quick, yet effective mask on the go! 💅🏼 #SuperMudForTheWin Skin type for Super Mud: • Problematic • Acne Prone • Oiliness Length of use: 8 months Cost: $59 / 50G or $82 / 100 G Recommend: Yes, but only if you have acne/problematic skin. Repurchase: Yes, second pot! Overall Rating: 5/5 This mask works very well on problematic skin as it targets the little imperfections, and the results were noticeable so quickly after the first use.

Mask for acne and pores!
Blue Tansy Mask is best suited for oily and blemish-prone skin. I would highly recommend to spot test first for sensitive skin types. The scent of this mask is deeply herbaceous and slightly medicinal and I find super therapeutic. I think their entire blue tansy range is calming and therapeutic to me. The texture of this is smooth gel like and cooling. The color is slightly deep blue to mossy green. The main Ingredients are willow bark, fruit enzymes, blue tansy oil. White Willow Bark (2%): A natural beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), it is high in anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial Salicin to help clarify skin. Fruit Enzymes (8%): Natural alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) including papaya and pineapple work to gently exfoliate and leave the complexion smooth and refined. Blue Tansy Oil: Naturally high in Azulene which in addition to giving the oil its beautiful blue color, works to reduce the appearance of redness and soothe dry skin. I apply this mask when I get acne and also use this as a spot treatment. Works so well. I apply after cleansing my face and let it sit for 10 mins and wash it off. My skin looks clearer, redness fades away and my acne are much calmer. Also my pores look clearer and not clogged. Enjoy using this one! Which is your favorite masks?
