One of my major investments from past few months has been on skincare products. I am really trying to get my skin clear. I got dry skin and little pores on my cheeks and my nose at times look like strawberry. But lately after following proper cleansing routine and taking good care of my skin by using right products I can feel my skin getting really better and also my skin doesn’t feel dry anymore honestly. I am so glad I invested in skincare products and I really feel comfortable in my skin now. A good base gives a smooth makeup application and I truly believe that.
I got Origins Active Charcoal Mask a month back and I have been using since twice a week. This mask claims to draw out all the impurities from your skin and minimize your pores. This mask contains Bamboo Charcoal which acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers, White China Clay absorbs environmental toxins, Lecithin helps in dissolving impurities. The texture is like any other charcoal mask not too thick nor watery consistency. You can apply using your fingers or a brush. Before applying this mask, I highly recommend to keep a hot towel or take a facial steam to open out those pores. This way mask works more effective for me. Apply an even layer all over your face and leave it until it dries completely. This mask feels little tight once dried. Wash off with water and wipe out excess. My pores look smaller immediately and blackheads are not so prominent. Although it doesn’t take out all the blackheads completely but it does make your pore shrink and make less noticeable. The blackheads come on the top surface of your skin with this mask so once rinsed just use a tool to extract the blackheads. It works really effective.
One thing you need to be careful with this mask is it makes your skin dry as any other charcoal mask. So apply a heavy moisturizer to your face post this mask. I like to use Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask as I already got dry skin and Clinique mask gives me a smooth skin and provides the required hydration. The packaging comes in a tube like which is easy to use either with fingers or a brush and it’s easy to carry while travelling.
I highly recommend this mask for all skin types. Have you ever tried this before? Which one is your favorite mask? Let me know in the comment section below. Thanks for reading !
