It's winter. And if your skin is anything like mine, it is probably screaming ''HELP'' right about now. The fact that I get the most breakouts during freezing weather surprises many of my friends, however I found out that this condition is not that uncommon. When your skin is dry and deprived of moisture, it tends to produce more oil (to try and save the situation). Unfortunately that much needed liquid has trouble reaching the surface due to dry patches that keep it pressed under the skin. In other words, (drum-roll) acne. What can we do about it? Exfoliate and well, most importantly hydrate.
I got a gift set for Christmas that included a few Nuxe products from their new Bio-Beaute collection, and what do you know it included a face mask. This beauty is called the Vitamin-Rich Detox Mask with orange water. First, let me just say, that this product smells EXACTLY like Terry's Chocolate Orange. It will require all your willpower not to lick this off your face. :-P
The texture of the mask is an orange gel-like (a bit sticky) sheer mask. When applied, you can leave it on for about 10 minutes or so and the products turns from gel to creamy towards the end. When you wash this off I am not joking, your skin feels insanely soft (duh) BUT it feels hydrated from the inside. This is honestly what blew me away and what I believe makes this mask stand out among other competitors. It's as if you are glowing and quenched from within. It's like when you eat a nice cold slice of watermelon on a hot summer day, it's just refreshing and just plain awesome if you ask me.
Now because this mask is quite rich and intense, it is recommended on the container to only use once a week. The advantage of this being, the product will last you quite a bit. I've already used it 6 or 7 times since I got it and as you can see, I barely made a dent in it. A little goes a long way with this one. So instead of buying a handful of tiny, unknown masks that will probably make your skin worse that it already is (trust me, I've been there) - I highly recommend you invest in this beauty who costs around 30$ but actually works and lasts you a while. Have you tried any products from this new collection? I'm very interested in giving more of them a go since I've had such a good first impression with this one.
