Here's something of a different pace.
And it's for your face!
I'm a little bit obsessive with having clear skin when it comes to my face. I use a mask at least once a week, exfoliate a few times a week, wash it morning and night, and I drink lots of water. If I'm gonna wear as much makeup as I do, I need to put in the work to make sure my skin is in good condition!
Masks are such an essential to feel fresh and to get deep in your skin where you can't easily wash away. Today I tried the TruSelf Organics Detoxifying Mask and I'm so satisfied!
Follow them on Instagram, truselforganics, and treat yourself on their website!
It comes in a powder form, which is unique to any mask I've used before. Just add water and mix it up. The directions say you only need a small amount, but I'm unsure how small is small, haha. Either way, I think this allows for options of consistency and additions such as honey or oils.
I made mine a little thick. I didn't add anything to it but maybe I will next time!
The mask claims to tone and reduce pores, discoloration, fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. That's a lot of promise! But I won't expect any miracles in the first go or even in the next few. Skin results take time and patience. However, even though I've only used it once I enjoyed my experience in that one try. I'll have to keep using it for awhile longer to see if it will be my go to or not.
The mask I would have used if not for this would have been Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask. The mint on that is quite strong, sometimes to where it may even hurt. TruSelf Organics Detoxifying Mask does NOT sting and I love that comfort. There's no strong smell either and you can control the consistency.
Since I made mine a little thick it took a bit for it to dry up. Some people are too impatient to do masks but it's a great to take some time to yourself. Just as the card says that was in the package, #loveyourself!
Maybe pass time strengthening your Pokemon team, or maybe I shouldn't be so lazy and do something about my chipped nails, or maybe some other time xD
And after it was all dry and washed off, here are the results!
The only edit on this picture is the lighting and the color. This is my skin directly after removing the mask. I didn't have a before picture cause I didn't think to but I can tell you that the pores on my nose shrunk and it looks much cleaner! It wasn't awful before but it was enough to bother me. I'm SUPER happy with the results for my pores and the lack of blackheads there. Huzzah!
As for the other things the mask claims, well, we'll have to see. I don't really have wrinkles but I'm sure this'll help prevent them as I age. My complexion is just a wee bit uneven. Let's see if that changes over time with this mask. I definitely felt the toning and my skin feels fresh and clean :]
I'm pretty happy with this mask. It's all natural, it's not tested on animals, it doesn't sting my skin, or have an odd smell. All in all it's a great mask!
It's supposed to last longer too since it's in powder form. I thought it was odd at first and maybe even a little bit of a hassle, but I like having the control of the consistency and amount. It won't ever dry up and it'll always be fresh every use!
Now I'm curious about their other products. More specifically their Raw Body Butter. The description is amazing so I want to know if it truly is!
Anyways, this was a great introduction to TruSelf Organics for me. If you buy one for yourself, I hope you have as good of an experience as I have!
