Welcome once again to Face Mask Friday. I have to say, I am very happy to be here. Today has been a nice calm even day for me. I worked, I walked, I showered I masked. And then I’ll go back to work for the rest of the day.
It’s kind of nice. The mask I went for today is not a new one in my collection. I have had it a while and I always enjoy using it. It is the Bliss Pore Patrol Deep Detox Four Clay Souffle Mask. The soufflé mask means that it is a little bit lighter than regular clay masks. The deep detox part means it really helps with the clogged pores forming bumpy lines in roughly the same locations as my face mask rests against my skin.
This mask is a very reliable product for me. I think I originally received this in a subscription box, however I have repurchased it a couple of times since then. This and the Bliss Mighty Marshmallow Bright and Radiant Whipped Mask are two I regularly keep around. The Mighty Marshmallow is really good when I’ve got inflamed break outs as it seems to calm the irritation down and the deep detox is the one I reach for when I have clogged pores. At the moment all my current breakouts have pretty much cleared up so it is just the clogged pores, hence the choice of mask. Bliss is having a sale on Masks and treatments this weekend as well, 30% off. Since their masks are always affordably priced it is an even better bargain than usual.
There is no tingling with this mask and to be honest, very little scent. It feels cool against the skin, but that I think is mostly just the nature of clay.
You may notice that my lips are a bit shiny in the photos (or the camera may not have picked it up). That’s because I like to indulge my lips a bit when I do my masks. I usually do, I just don’t always remember to mention it. MY go to lip product is the Bite Beauty Agave Night time lip therapy mask. It has almost no scent to it.
I tend to use the Maple lip mask during the day and the night time one at night, partially because if I try wearing the maple one at night my baby doll wakes up craving pancakes.
When I mask I use the Night time one as well. Some of it will wash off when I rinse off my mask but a surprising amount will have sunk in during my fifteen minute masking. The amount that sinks in always makes me feel as though I’ve been ignoring my lips. But they do feel wonderfully soft when I am done. In case you are interested Bite Beauty has a sale going on this weekend for their lip treatments. From today until September 16th it’s buy one, get one 50% off on the entire Agave+ Collection.
I highly recommend both the regular lip mask (that’s the maple scented one, although they do sell other, it just happens to be my favorite), and the Nighttime lip mask. I am actually stocking up on both for the winter. As you can see I am getting quite low on my night time mask and need to restock. Since I have an almost new tube of the regular lip mask I may look around and actually branch out from my favorites and (gasp, shock, awe) try something new. Summer and winter are when I need them most, spring and fall I generally use just regular lip balm and call it good, but summer and winter, my lips need just a little extra love.
And now I am refreshed and my skin feels smooth and clean. For the rest of the afternoon I am going to be working at my desk so I am going to stay fresh faced and just let my skin breath for a little while. I’ll probably give it a spritz of the Timeless Skin HA Spray later on if I need a little refresher, but otherwise I’m just going to let my skin be. For now, it is back to work for me.
