Have you ever come across a product that you completely forgot you had? In the back of my masking drawer I came across the Korres pomegranate resurfacing mask. I forgot completely that I had it. I remember loving it, but then I had a slew of new masks come in and it ended up buried. Since I skipped pretty much all of my exfoliation this week, once I saw the mask I knew, today it was time to see if I liked it as much as I remembered.
This mask from Korres is also only a five minute mask. Which given my still somewhat warped schedule, is not a bad thing. I love the fifteen minute relaxing time with my music and candles.
(I even picked up a new candle actually. It’s from Paddywax. They currently have a 20% off sale going on for Father’s day fight now if you are looking to stock up. I know you are braced for another Edgar Allen Poe Candle which I absolutely love and will purchase again in the fall, but I decided to shake things up and go with the La Playa Salted Blue Agave instead. I’ve ordered it before and actually I still use the glass as a drinks glass. They are great glasses and I wanted something lighter and fresher for the warmer weather. I love the beachy citrusy scent.)
But when time is short, sometimes the candles have to be used later in the day. I’ll probably light the candle later tonight as it will go well with the ceviche I have planned.
It has been a while since I used the Korres Pomegranate Resurfacing mask. It still smells as fresh as ever although there isn’t much left in the tube. I may actually keep it out and use the last of it up this week rather than put it in the drawer again. And then repurchase a fresh tube later.
Because this is a good mask that I do want to repurchase. The scent is fresh and clean and very pomegranate-y. It has a rough texture so you get both a physical exfoliation as well as a chemical one from this mask. I know chemical exfoliation is supposed to be better for your skin because it is gentler, but there is just something I love about a physical exfoliate. I don’t use them as much as I used to and limit my time with them so I don’t do damage to the skin and I am very careful about the ones I do use, but on occasion I really like a physical exfoliator.
And this one was really nice. I left it for five minutes so the chemicals could do their thing and then I massaged it with a little water before rinsing it off. My skin feels smooth and clean and super fresh. I have to say, I am almost glad I ended up missing my exfoliation this week, just so I could have the fabulously fresh feeling that I have right now. I will go back to my normal routine, but really, this is a wonderful feeling and I feel energized enough to plow through the rest of my work day at top speed.
Bring on the paperwork. I am ready.
