I already know what you’re thinking. “Oh joy. Another blog post about a mask.” Surely if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all, right? Wrong, my friend. Wrong. This blog post is being brought to you by the brand Refresh and I had the opportunity to test drive their mask. Er…masque.
Retailing for a smooth ‘an easy $29.95 this masque has been a much needed addition in my skincare routine. I’ve been cool with my cleansers, moisturizers and exfoliators but a soothing treatment like this masque is very much appreciated.
Perfect for those of us with all skin types, Refresh has formulated this natural mud masque to have several uses. In addition to moisturizing the skin, it helps exfoliates and contains 100% natural ingredients. Yes girls. This product even omits synthetic fragrance which you know I’m lovin’.
I really wanted to give my skin sometime to see how well she (my skin is a she…right?) liked the masque. I took a shower and applied this bad boy to clean and damp skin. Per the instructions, I let it sit for 10 minutes. Yours truly was very happy to see that it didn’t crack and become a crummy mess. Warm water assisted me in removing it and I was left with subtle skin that felt moisturizing and soft to the touch.
I find that many facial masks suck the moisture right out of my skin but thanks to the moisturizing properties of ingredients like shea butter and cucumber, I didn’t immediately have to dive into my moisturizer and this is always a good thing.
Having used this several times over several weeks, I find myself reaching for it time and time again. And this, ladies and gentlemen, says a lot for skincare product junkie!
-The masque is incredibly moisturizing and will come in great use during the warm months and during the cooler months.
-The base of this clay is bentonite clay which is known for its fantastic detoxifying properties.
-Removal is quick and easy. Slather on and rinse off. DONE!
-I’ve found that this masque feels extra nice when used after spending hours in the sun.
-A little goes a long way.
-If you aren’t familiar with the smell of bentonite clay (which uh…smells like clay), the scent may throw you off.
-If you don’t ensure that the lid is placed on correctly EVERY time, you may end up with a dry masque. Ask me how I know…
I’m a fan! I haven’t boogied with a masque in forever and a day I think this one from REFRESH will be following me for a quite some time. You can purchase it here but if you use the code 9FIOVZKR, you’ll save $5 from now until the end of August. Happy shopping, lovelies!
