Take a peek!
Ok, so, I do recommend it for those with combination or oily skin however, those, like me, who have dry skin you’ll have to practice a little caution. I tend to use this in the Summer when my skin is a bit more combo and I’m suffering from oily forehead, nose, and chin. However, in the Winter when I’m patchy around my cheeks this does make me drier and tighter. I like to use it maybe once a month in the Winter and once a week in the Summer.
Oily skin can probably get more use out of it as it does do a fairly good job of sucking up excess oil and mattifying skin!
The mask was created to draw out impurities and dirt in pores. I don’t have larger pores outside of the ones on my nose which do have issues with blackheads. This smells exactly like Lush’s popular Magnaminty mask except it doesn’t have those tiny little pieces of chocolate in the mix. To me it kinda smells like mint ice cream or a big stick of mint gum. It’s a very pleasant scent. It has a cool, refreshing feel on my skin with a slight tingle when applied.
The mask is a thicker texture that dries down to a tighter, drier cracked version. You’ll leave it on 15-30 minutes and wash off with lukewarm water or use a wet wash cloth to take it off and rinse off any excess left behind after using the wash cloth.
My experience with the mask is it does indeed suck up all excess oil and leaves skin looking and feeling squeaky clean. The pores of my nose aren’t exactly cleaner after use but those blackheads need extracting as even a Biore Nose Strip can’t get to those bad boys. In the Summer it’s a really great way for me to draw out oil and keep it at bay. Since I’m not THAT oily to begin with it does a fairly good job mattifying my skin for a good week after I use it. In the Winter, I tend to use it when I want my skin to feel extra, extra clean…particularly after a work out or something when my skin feels gross, oily, and just dirty…..! It leaves skin tighter and drier in the Winter months but a little moisturizer easily gets rid of the tight feeling and my skin has a nice glow to it after use so it is worth the hassle.
If you’re looking for a mask to get your skin squeaky clean and to give it back a bit of glow when it’s looking lackluster this little mask is the perfect pick.
It retails for around $2.99-$3.99 in drugstores so you can’t beat the price.
Especially a nice pick for those who don’t want to dish out for Lush’s higher costing mint mask!
