Battle of the pore-cleaning masks

Battle of the pore-cleaning masks

Unfortunately, with my oily skin comes larger pores and excess sebum. To curb that I use masks that suck out all of the oil my skin THINKS it wants to express. These two masks have different ingredients, but they both claim to do the same thing: clean out those pores. 🛕🛕🛕🛕🛕🛕🛕🛕🛕🛕🛕🛕🛕🛕🛕🛕 AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay
is a 100% Calcium Bentonite Clay mask that comes in a powder. It should be mixed with equal parts apple cider vinegar before spreading on face, body or hair. (I use Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother.) It should not be left on for more than 5 minutes for sensitive skin and 15-20 for normal skin. Rinse with warm water. Patch test before using on entire face. Redness can occur, but should clear up in 30 minutes. (It comes in a 1-2 pound container.) NOTE: One pound of powder makes about 10-15 masks. My experience: My first time using this mask, I was taken aback. When the mask dries, it literally feels like all of the oil is being sucked out of your face at the speed of light. There is a tightening and pulsating feeling that if weird at first. As an oily person, I loved it. But this is not a mask for a person with dry skin. I tone before and after I use the mask and then do the rest of my skin routine. My pores felt tighter after rinsing the mask away. Note: The Aztec website has different recipes to try. Recommend? Yes 🌀🌀🌀🌀🌀🌀🌀🌀🌀🌀🌀🌀🌀🌀🌀🌀🌀 boscia - Charcoal Pore Pudding Intensive Wash-Off Treatment
works to detoxify your skin, minimize the appearance of pores and balance your skin with black-and-white charcoal. It is not supposed to leave you skin dry like some other masks. White charcoal is to impurities what hyaluronic acid is to water: They hold 1,000 times their weight. The white charcoal also helps balance your skin. Application: Apply mask using your hands or a spatula in an even, opaque layer. You should leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. While the product does come with white/black colors spiraled, the product will mix as you use it on you face and in the container. I used my points to get this mask about 6 months ago. It isn’t one of my favorites, but I will use it when I feel a clay mask will be too much for my skin. I wish I could use it more, but the licorice scent can be overwhelming. The texture is something I love about this mask. It literally feels like you a rubbing pudding on your face. It applies easily and removes easier than other masks of its like. Recommend? Not really. I think there are better masks out there. Clean at Sephora: ✔️ WINNER: Aztec 🛕

Pudding for your pores 🖤 Mask # 2
This was a product that I’ve had my eyes on for a long time!! For some reason l, anything with pudding in the title interests me 🤷🏻‍♀️. This Pore mask is is $39.00 for 2.8 oz. and this I actually paid full price for because I REALLY wanted to try it! boscia - Charcoal Pore Pudding Intensive Wash-Off Treatment Claims: Detoxify, refine and minimize the appearance of pores with a powerfully effective Activated Black Charcoal and Binchotan White Charcoal Powder wash-off treatment mask. The powerful duo deeply decongests by removing dirt, oil and impurities without over-drying and irritating. Key ingredients: Activated Bamboo Charcoal: absorbs toxins and impurities leaving the skin healthier-looking, clearer, refined and stronger Binchotan White Charcoal Powder: moisturizes and balances skin by increasing hydration Kaolin Clay: boosts the benefits of the Bamboo and White Charcoal by reducing excess oil without depriving the skin of key moisture, leaving skin deeply cleansed and balanced. My experience: With this mask, you use the enclosed spatula to get some of the white and black and then apply to the target areas you want to treat. When you mix the two you should have a thin and grey opaque layer. This is not a mask that you need to use a lot. One thing that I’ve seen in reviews is that it smells like licorice. I don’t think it smells like that AT ALL. To me it smells like the ashes of a campfire and it is a strong smell for sure. Not my favorite scent by any means but it’s tolerable. I waited about 15 minutes for the mask to dry and then washed off with warm water. It doesn’t give you that tight feeling and washes off super easy. The major thing I noticed was that my pores definitely looked much smaller. I have some really huge pores 😩 so anything that makes them look smaller I’m very happy with! I noticed my blackheads were gone as well!! After this mask I splashed on a little Tatcha the essence, then followed up with my holy grail daytime moisturizer, the Boscia gel charcoal moisturizer and my pores look about as good and small as they ever will! Repurchase? Definitely. The price tag is Worth it because when you have to use such a thin layer this container should last me quite a while. Plus , you only use this maybe once or twice a week. This definitely works for me and I love it!! 🖤🖤🖤

Inflammation, fungal acne, hormonal acne?🤷🏼‍♀️
I’ve been struggling with acne for years! I’ve been trying to figure out what is wrong with my skin from Internet education and it’s far from helpful sometimes. Unfortunately, I’ve never had enough to go to the derm nor do I want oral treatments for my skin. The big thing is that I have no idea what kind of acne I have but I know it’s not normal. Could someone who may be suffering with the same thing tell me what treatments to use or even what I have as far as acne type? I’d really appreciate it❤️ Skin type: -very oily -sensitive -acne prone (obviously) What I use for skin care currently: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer And twice a month: AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay

Grapefruit Clay Mask
Grapefruit Clay Mask
I bought this mask on a whim because it happened to be on clearance at the local store. The mask goes on super smooth, and dries in 10-15 like suggested on the packaging. When this washed off my skin felt soft, it didn’t make my skin feel dry but instead it felt like my pores could breathe! Helped remove excess oil my skin seems to always have and gave it a nice glow. For the price I would recommend to anyone looking to get rid of some debris on the skin. Package contains enough product for 2 applications so perfect for a girls night!

philosophy - Purity Made Simple Pore Extractor Mask For my first post, I thought it was only right to talk about one of my first products when I started becoming obsessed w skincare. This mask by Philosophy won a 2018 Allure best of beauty award and I can definitely see why. You apply this pale white mask to clean, dry skin and literally can FEEL it exfoliating and working it’s way into your pores. The level of exfoliation really depends on how dry your face is and how hard u massage it on. If you have sensitive skin I would suggest wetting ur face a tad while using and gentle application. I swear I saw reduction of the pores on my cheeks and nose after 3 uses. Love this product! It does only get 4 stars because it’s a small bottle for the price that goes by pretty quick and can potentially feel harsh if you rub too hard on dry skin.

Who doesn’t love a good mask?
Who doesn’t love a good mask?
Pictured here is the Versed Find Clarity Purifying Mask! This item is a light grayish clay mask that comes in a little squeeze bag, opposed to a pot/tub. I personally prefer this packaging, as I’m not a huge fan of sticking my fingers into pots/tubs, especially if it’s skincare related. In addition, it’s also a relatively smooth texture, with no granules. In this bag, there’s approximately 12+ uses of the mask and it was relatively inexpensive. This mask is composed of white charcoal and clay. I use this mask on my entire face, preferably at nighttime. This really helps to cleanse my pores. I love using this when my skin just feels “dirtier” than usual. I’ve used this a few times and haven’t had any noticeable irritations. Which is great, especially since I have sensitive skin. Simply, I just apply the mask, leave it on for about 10-15 minutes, rinse it off, and finish up with the rest of my skincare steps. I would actually recommend this mask, for anyone looking for a good, inexpensive clay mask. This product can be found at Target, as that’s where I was able to find this brand.

I Dew Care Pure to the Pore
I Dew Care Pure to the Pore
This K Beauty face mask, Pure to the Pore by I Dew Care, is a clay mask that deep cleanses the pores leaving your skin and radiant. In addition to deeply cleansing the pores it also helps to cut down excess sebum production (hey oily girls, this one is for us!) and it’s safe for sensitive skin. The consistency is a bit jelly-ish. Thick enough to turn the jar upside without anything pouring out but soft enough to “cut” with my face mask spatula. It doesn’t take too much effort to spread evenly across the face. After you let it sit for 10-15 mins, the mask washes off easily with warm water. My face is so soft and smooth once I wash the mask off and my pores are noticeably smaller. My only con is that I wish it was bigger! This mask is definitely being added to my mask rotation. I Dew Care can be found online at memebox.com and ulta.com. However I picked this up at TJ Maxx along with a bubble mask from the same line at a discounted price of $6. (TJ Maxx and Marshall’s is always a hit or miss when finding the same product twice but fingers crossed🤞🏾I can find it again). Full price the mask is about $19. 10 out of 10 definitely recommend

Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips
Bioré - Nose + Face Deep Cleansing Pore Strips I love these pore cleansing strips! I use to remove the blackheads and clean the pores on my nose and T-zone! Easy to apply just wet your nose with water and lay on like a bandaid, wait a few minutes until it is dry then peel off! It removes so much built in dirt and grime from my pores! I’ve been using for over 5 years now and it’s a staple in my routine! I only use about once a week to be gentle on my skin (peeling the dry strip off can sting a tad). For such an affordable price $8 for 14 strips I would recommend for anyone with dry/combo/oily skin!

Amazing Pink Clay Mask
Amazing Pink Clay Mask
Let me introduce you to my newest pink love-the Australian Pink Clay Mask by @skinbery It helps to detoxify, clean, and purify your skin. If you have breakouts this pink beauty will shrink them even after one use. I appreciate that even though it’s a clay mask, it doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry and tight. It is also cruelty free, vegan and gluten free. It does have a slight strawberry fragrance. I don’t mind, but if that bothers you, this won’t be for you. Do you have a favorite clay mask? *gifted but love is real💗
