Decisions, Decisions. One of my standby masks has been the Bliss Mighty Marshmallow Bright and Radiant Whipped Mask. Putting it on is like slathering yourself with marshmallow frosting, without the stickiness.
And the taste. Don’t eat the mask. No matter how much it looks like frosting, it doesn’t taste like it and should not be eaten. Trust me on that.
Earlier this week I went out and picked up a fresh new container and planned to use it today as my mask.
Then this month’s BoxyCharm arrived and inside was the Bliss Pore Patrol Deep Detox Four Clay Souffle Mask (retail $18), just waiting to be used.
So yeah, I caved and used the new product instead of my favorite standby. (I’ll post my review of the BoxyCharm Box on monday, I think it was the Premium box actually.)
Next week perhaps my lovely marshmallow.
Today, I went with the Pore Patrol. (and yes for some reason I have the Chips Television Theme song in my head because of my choice. Feel free to hum along now that you know today’s exciting soundtrack.
Most of the masks I’ve been using lately have been of the detoxing variety. As I consumed more sugar, salt and fat in the last month than I think i had in the previous six, I am not mad at that.
Unlike the tub of marshmallow goodness, the Pore Patrol comes with a shaving cream like dispenser. I really like the fact that it keeps the rest of the product safe from air and finger contamination. Incidentally for the Marshmallow, which does come in a tub I use a small salt scoop I got at a fancy kitchen goods store to extract the product. If memory serves it cost only a dollar or so and has proven invaluable with many products. it is metal so I tend to chuck it in the dishwasher with the regular silverware when it needs sterilization.
The mask dispenses easily. I was worried that being a clay based mask there might be some hiccups. There weren’t. I’m guessing that was due to the souffle consistency. I did dispense a little too much first try, so be aware the product comes out faster than you might expect. Or at least faster than I expected.
It went on smoothly with that slightly cool sensation I expect from clay. I let it sit for fifteen minutes while I contemplated the type of bath salts I wanted to get now that I can use the bathtub on a regular basis, and then I went back to the bathroom to wash it off.
This mask needed no real scrubbing to get it off of my skin. It rinsed off quickly and cleanly, leaving my skin smooth and clean. I had a slight redness where a zit was threatening to erupt and it was significantly less red and looking like it was rethinking the need to bother erupting, which I am thrilled with. I think Mighty Marshmallow might have a new companion in the masking shelf in my bathroom. If continued use reproduces the same results, I will certainly be repurchasing it. (or I guess purchasing it separately since it came in my Boxy Charm.) either way, I like both the product and the price. I have a code that takes 20% off purchases which I’ll post below.
