After having an absolutely brilliant skin month last month (is that a thing?), my skin has not been loving me this month, and I’ve suffered quite a few breakouts. I’m talking those nasty painful under the skin spots that take like a week to heal. So I’ve had to bust out my best cleansing face masks a bit more often than usual, and thought I’d share my top three with you guys.
BEST CLEANSING FACE MASKS
Lush Cupcake is a face mask full of cleansing rhassoul mud and chocolatey goodness. The consistency is basically like a chocolate dough that smells deliciously like choc chip ice cream, that you slather all over your face, let dry and then wash off. The mud has deep cleansing properties that will suck out all the dirt from your skin and the cocoa butter makes sure that it doesn’t leave your face feeling tight or dry, making this mask the ultimate pamper night treat.
Oh, GLAMGLOW. This is definitely one of the best cleansing face masks I’ve ever tried. It was also the first clay mask that I ever tried. (Since I used to have a weird phobia towards clay masks). And this pot is actually empty ’cause I’ve already used all of it. This one smells like licorice and is a pitch black coloured paste that dries down to a tight grey mask on your face, that still washes off rather easy.
It includes mud, clay and charcoal, all champion ingredients in cleaning out clogged pores, and when this mask dries down it will actually bring out all the pores in your skin. Looks gross, but it’s bloody effective. Of the three this is the only one just purely for cleansing though, and doesn’t include any moisturizing ingredients, so I’d follow it up with a thick moisturizer.
This is by far my favourite face mask of all time. First of all, it smells like vanilla, which is my favourite scent of all time. The main ingredient is manuka honey, with antibacterial properties that draw out all the impurities on your skin, while gently treating any existing blemishes. Plus this mask also adds an insane boost of moisture to your skin, leaving it feeling soft and bouncy. It’s a light cream that doesn’t dry out on your skin, feels really moisturizing and is easy peasy to wash off.
