I love nothing more than relaxing with a good book, cup of tea and a face mask - like most people that's how I treat myself. What I've come to realise is that one mask doesn't necessarily suit every area of skin. I get breakouts, black heads and oily mainly in my T-Zone then dryer skin across my cheeks. Enter the idea of multi-masking. It's not new but its fantastic. Take your favourite masks and apply them to the areas you need them. Clogged pores? Charcoal mask! Dehydrated skin across your cheeks? Apply your favourite moisture rich mask.
I end up looking a bit like an abstract painting, or a still from a heat signature but it's done wonders for my skin.
Three of my favourite masks (though the list is ever-growing) hail from the L'Oreal Pure Clay range.
The Purify Mask as the name suggests, aims to purify and mattify the skin. I use this mainly on my forehead, nose and chin, anywhere I tend to get oily. Immediately after use my skin feels balanced and clean but not tight. This one doesn't smell great but I can overlook that for how well it works.
If I don't use The Purify Mask then I tend to go for The Dextox Mask. A charcoal based mask that draws out oils and impurities. It's very similar to the Glam Glow Supermud Treatment but for a fraction of the price. As the mask dries and lightens you can see darker patches begin to form - that's the mask drawing out nastiness from your pores.
The Glow Mask feels like a two in one product to me. As you start to wash it off the scrubbing particles exfoliate the skin leaving it smooth, bright and glow-y. This I do quite like using all over if I feel like my skin has been looking a little dull and lacklustre. A perfect Sunday pick me up!
I haven't yet picked them up but I want to put them to the test soon. Usually, Boots has them on special offer too which is wonderful. They're £7.99 which doesn't break the bank to begin with but I love a good deal.
