So I was on one of my late night WalMart runs last week and I ended up in the beauty aisle OF COURSE and I'm ALWAYS looking for something new to try, ALWAYS. One thing I NEVER really got into was masks. Whenever I used to go to LUSH, the experts in there would always tell me that a mask, once a week, was good for your skin. SO, seeing as though I was in WalMart, I decided to just purchase one from here...I mean they were only like a $1, MAYBE $2.
One thing that really stuck out for ME and my skin problems: BLEMISH PRONE SKIN
seeing those words, really got me, that was my selling point lol
"What's in it?" you ask:
dead sea salt
Aloe Vera leaf juice
green tea leaf extract...
just a FEW of the things to name
So, first...the instructions state to clean your face. I HAD to do that, I mean I still had my work face on. So, I used my Neutrogena Makeup Remover towelettes to get the first layer off and then a cotton ball and Witch Hazel to get the excess off...
Once in the shower, I washed my face with my black soap that I got from Walmart as well and I towel-dried my face....above is a CLEAN face : )
NEXT...instructions say to apply the clean mud. I used my hand and applied in a circular motion, a good 2-3 layers. I wanted to make sure it got deep into my pores and I got a good coat goin' on. The smell was very refreshing, like a lighter Noxzema cream, very fresh, very sinus-clearing lol...I liked it!
Relaaaaax and let it sit for 10-15 minutes...I chose 15, I wanted to MAXIMUM effect OF COURSE
Juuuust waiting as you can see....*sigh*
While waiting, the mask DOES harden, it does thicken, it DOES dry up...and you can feel it. It kinda felt like my head, face, whatever, got just a liiiittle bit heavier lol. To make that face above, it felt SO GOOD! the mud actually tightened my face, so I needed to do that. Forgive the silly face lol
15 minutes are UP...time to wipe off. The first thing I noticed, it wasn't as hard to wipe off as I thought. Seeing as though I put it on pretty thick. I started with the middle of my face, that area was the tightest.
I LOVED the feeling of the cool air in the house hitting my newly exposed face...it felt gooooood!
The very first thing I noticed was that my face seemed or looked a little lighter in color. I'm guessing that means it's just a tad bit cleaner. My face was so soft, and not even as oily as it usually is, so I LOVED that. Overall, I enjoyed this mask experience. There will be more masks purchased!
THANKS FOR READING...HOPE Y'ALL ENJOYED!!!
