Great gentle exfoliating mask
I’m a long-time fan of The Ordinary, so when I saw this new mask in the Deciem store during a recent trip to Toronto, I snapped it up! I‘ve used their acid peel in the past and although I loved the results, it was very strong and stung my skin every time I used it. I was hoping this mask would be a gentler alternative, and thus far it’s lived up to my hopes. This mask claims to target lackluster tone and texture, including large pores and acne blemishes. The product is a creamy consistency, and a little goes a long way—a very thin layer is all you need. The mask dries to a matte finish within a few minutes, and when I wash it off it feels like there are some physical exfoliants—maybe the charcoal? Either way, it doesn’t sting my skin at all, and I think it’s really helped calm down my current breakout. This mask is more expensive than the acid peel, at $12 for 50ml, but it’s still very affordable. Overall, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a milder exfoliating mask that targets acne, large pores, and texture.The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque

Before and Afters still in progress....
I truly don’t like doing before and afters especially when it looks like there’s barely any progress but I promise you my skin FEELS so much better than it looks and I’ve seen some amazing progress! I’ve tagged the products I feel have helped the most recently. It takes patience but little progress is still PROGRESS 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
1 week update
thanks to all lovely beauties out there to take their time and add a comment on my last post. I was devastated by breakout, i was having from last 2-3 weeks and nothing seems to be working. Well i guess too many exfoliants was making my skin too sensitive so now i am back to basics. I have started what i was doing in the beginning and that seems to be working just fine. I think i was selfish to have a great skin in no time 🥴. If someone is just curious what i am doing right now then lets go to products. AM: ￼The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser ￼sukin - Pore Perfecting Toner Blemish Control it has tree oil which is good for acne prone skin ￼The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% ￼The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA ￼LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios XL Ultra-Light Fluid SPF 50+ as i have sensitive and oily skin this makes my face matte and oil free. I really like this one for oily skin or combination skin PM: ￼The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser ￼sukin - Pore Perfecting Toner Blemish Control ￼The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 ￼The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% (only on spots and acne 2-3 times a week) ￼The Ordinary - Mandelic Acid 10% + HA (once a week) ￼The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion (once a week) ￼The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque (once a week) ￼The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Hemi-Squalane ￼tea tree oil only on spots Even if i have listed so many items i feel i have very basic skin care routine as most of the products are being used weekly or only 2-3 times a week. But in the end this routine is working out for me and i am seeing good progress which makes me happy. Again thanks to all who suggested me before ❤️❤️
The Ordinary 2% Salicylic Acid Masque
The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque I’m usually a big fan of the ordinary products, since most of them are super affordable and effective. I’ve only been using this mask for about 3 weeks but I like it so far. The consistency is like a thick black cream, that’s really easy to apply with fingers or a brush. I used it all over my face the first time, and even though I only left it for about 8 minutes, it felt a bit drying on some areas. A couple of hours after using this, my blemishes really got to the surface and disappeared faster than usual. Now I only use it as a spot treatment or on areas that I have blemishes, because it can be drying. It works very well and is really effective for the low price. I recommend applying a thick layer or washing it off after a couple of minutes to not dry your skin out. I have sensitive skin and it doesn’t irritate my skin that way. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a effective affordable spot treatment or mask for blemishes! 4/5 stars because it can be a bit drying.

My best acne solution
A few months ago I was traveling and knew I was headed toward a terrible breakout (as always happens when I travel). While I was away I saw these pads and picked them up as a potential solution. I hadn’t used acne pads since my teen years, but I was intrigued by the salicylic acid, which while helping control breakouts is also a chemical exfoliator which can help promote brightness and pore size by sloughing off dead skin. To my surprise and delight these pads helped prevent and rapidly clear my breakouts! I ended up using the whole container and definitely plan on repurchasing. Even though these are marketed as max strength, I never found them to be drying or make my skin uncomfortable. Would definitely recommend for anyone trying to find a product to help with acne!

Great value salicylic masque!
I have been using this weekly and honesty my combo, acne-prone skin loves salicylic acid. It’s one of my go-to ingredients for acne busting. This mask isn’t overly drying, especially if you tend to have oily skin like me. It is really hard to get off though, which sucks. But the mask is like 10-12 bucks at Sephora or on Deciems website. High quality product for a low price! Their BHA Peeling mask is also a holy grail for me. Worth trying for the price.

Mask to Eliminate Blackheads!
SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask If you have been searching for a treatment to eliminate blackheads, look no further than the Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porerefining Face Mask. This mask is formulated with pink clay to clean out and tighten pores, kelp & witch hazel to repair skin, mangosteen & pomegranate to brighten and Kakadu Plum to even skin tone/pigmentation. This can be used by anyone looking to address any of those issues but I have found it especially helpful for targeting congested skin/blackheads/whiteheads. You can use as a full mask or as a spot treatment on problem areas. The texture is thick and mud-like, similar to many other clay masks - it dries down quickly but doesn’t leave my skin tight or dry. I decided to try this mask because I was influenced by the hype all over social media - so many people rave about this mask so I decided to give it a try after receiving a sample size. And I literally fell in love after my first use. It’s not difficult to use - it comes with its own brush which you use to apply a thin/even layer - then you let it sit about 10 minutes and wash it off...easy peasy. It left my skin visibly clearer and my pores visibly smaller. My zits looks smaller and less red and my skin definitely looked brighter. I actually couldn’t believe it. This is one of those few products out there which I truly believe does everything it claims to do - probably why the hype is SO real. It is expensive ($50) for 2.1oz but I’m certainly not using this multiple times per week (I find 1-2 times max is plenty for my skin) and you use even less if using as a spot treatment so I do think you’ll get bang for your buck on this product. I have recommended this and will continue to do so - I think anyone (especially those with oily/acne prone skin) will fall in love with the results. I mean, who doesn’t want clearer and brighter skin!?

Supermud is a very advanced clearing treatment with charcoal mud to fight problem skin and skin imperfections! The activated-x charcoal helps lift dirt, toxins and excess oil from the deepest and toughest areas to purify pores. The SUPER 6 Acid Blend helps loosen dead skin cells to exfoliate and sweep them away, leaving fresh, smooth skin behind. I notice right away a visibly clear complexion!! It is 100% suitable for acne-prone skin and works with pores, oiliness, blemishes, and problem skin! This has a very thick and rich texture and dries on the skin to let you know it’s working!! I use this all the time when my skin is acting up and I immediately see a difference! For anyone looking for help with their skin this is what you need!!✨GLAMGLOW - Supermud Charcoal Instant Treatment Mask

key ingredients: six super acid blend - the super six acid blend in this mask contains a mixture of both alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids, such as lactic acid, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, mandelic acid, tartaric acid, and pyruvic acid. these acids work together at different speeds on different layers of the skin so you get the benefits of both. they also unclog pores that result in skin problems and imperfections. activated - x charcoal - activated - x charcoal is an extreme absorption carbon that attracts toxins and dirt from deep down in your pores. eucalyptus leaves - eucalyptus leaves steep in the mud and charcoal, delivering the benefits and phytoactive components into the skin and formula. what it claims to do: this clay mask claims to clean and remove any toxins deep down into the deepest and toughest areas from your pores. with the unique formula that this mask holds, it’ll help fight problematic skin/skin imperfections and clogged pores. the super six acid blend helps loosen dead skin cells to exfoliate and sweep them away, leaving fresh and smooth skin behind. this mask is also recommended for acne - prone and oily skin. my experience: i came across this product about a week ago and decided to give it a try because of what it claims to do. this mask is great for clearing out and removing all of the dirt and debris deep inside your pores. it also helps refine the appearance of your pores as well, which makes it more difficult for any bacteria to clog them, resulting in clearer skin. i found that this product works best as a spot treatment overnight, especially for whiteheads since it draws out the pus and toxins from the blemish. it may take time for the active ingredients in the mask to penetrate and give their effect, so a treatment left in place on a blemish for several hours may be of benefit for many products. however, i didn’t notice a difference when applying this to an under the skin blemish, but it did bring it to a head quicker than it would without. this mask is also simple to wash off even if used as a spot treatment, which is left on for way longer than the recommended time. as the mask dries, the super six acid blend allows you to see the active ingredients being drawn towards your pores to remove debris. this is called the pore - matrix. psa: this type of clay mask isn’t recommended for sensitive skin because of the amount of powerful acids it contains, which is why i mostly use it only on my t-zone area because it isn’t sensitive. you also may feel a tingly sensation when applying this mask (it goes away after a few seconds) but this signals your skin is getting used to the different acids and that they’re penetrating into your pores.
