Top Masks for Oily Skin
With summer just around the corner, it’s time for me to break out the clay masks that keep me from becoming an oily mess the moment I step outside. By cleaning out my pores, I’m also reducing the number of impurities that can easily morph into acne.
Michael Todd Cosmetics Kaolin Clay Mask
I first began using this mask after trying out the acne prone blemish kit from Michael Todd several years ago. While the cleanser, toner, and moisturizer were all a great help to my skin, I found this mask made the most impact. For those of you who’ve never tried a mask that contains kaolin clay, the face becomes extremely tingly and warm. This particular mask is gives one of the strongest reactions I’ve ever had to a mask, but thankfully I don’t have sensitive skin. If you do have to steer clear of stronger masks, then I recommend you try the more sensitive version of this mask Michael Todd offers. Overall, this mask clears my pores of any and all gunk, and I make sure I never run out of it.
Lush Cosmetics Brazened Honey
While showing off the wonders of Lush to a good friend, I decided to pick up this refrigerated mask! The smell of this mask alone would be enough for me to buy it again, but the tingling warmth, ground almonds, and moisturizing honey tightened my face and made it feel great. For a more in depth review, check out my YouTube review here. If you have access to a Lush store near you, I think you have to try one of there fresh face masks.
