The Skincare Post: The Masks What Make My Skin Go 'Ahh'

The dream team, these two have been working perfectly together. My skin has decided to misbehave this past few weeks so I went to my friend, Jen from Jenny Purr Blog for advice and she told me I needed a clay mask to draw all the gunk out and then something to put the moisture back.

I went straight to my skincare shelf, fished out my trusty Aesop Primrose Facial Cleansing Masque. I reviewed this a while back but I go to this whenever my skin becomes a little oily and has small blemishes. My t-zone has been a little oily and my blackheads needed to be sorted out. I painted this on using the Real Techniques Pointed Foundation Brush, which is perfect for masks if you don't want to use your fingers, but only on my t-zone and on my chin. Leave it on till it dries, which usually takes about 10 minutes and wash off with a damp flannel. It is clay based, which means it's drying, however it's suitable for most skin types. That's why I need the Aveda Intensive Hydrating Masque next, a gel like consistency mask. My skin isn't usually tight from it being dry, however I can feel it needs moisture injected back in it. A thick layer of this left on for 15 minutes leaves my skin feeling hydrated. It's not for everything, but for someone who has fairly normal skin which misbehaves every now and then, it might be your saviour.
