Skin Reset

Hope everyone had a great long weekend! Despite it being a little chilly, windy and rainy yesterday, today seems like a better day.

Life needs a reset button sometimes and whether it may be unwinding from the day with a bubble bath, a simple work out, wine and dine or just relaxing at home this helps us reset for the next day or the week ahead. It is no surprise that your skin needs a reset as well. From skincare to makeup…the dust and dirt in the air your skin is bound to collect these particals through the day and week.

To reset my skin, I like to use a deep cleansing mask at the end of the week, just so I’m starting the week with a clean canvas. It helps to clean out the pores, soothe any irritations, diminish acne scars or pimples. There are two masks that I have been loving at the end of the week. Both reaches it’s expectation and does almost about the same as one is a little more aggressively then the other.

Let’s get into it..

Secret Nature Volcanic Ash Pore Pack vs Skin&Lab Dr. Pore Tightening Glacial Clay Facial Mask

Both of these masks key point is Pore diminishing and with that being said it leaves the skin feeling fresh and clean.

Lets start with Secret Nature Volcanic Ash Pore Pack.

Texture is on the harder side and I find that it dries out quite quickly after opening. It spreads quite well and the texture is on the heavy side despite using a small amount. There isn’t an apparent smell to the clay mask, nothing too perfumey.

Overall: Leaves my skin quite clean without that squeaky texture. Skin is a little red especially on my cheeks, but once followed up with toner and moisture cream the redness diminishes. With this mask I find that using a heavier moisture works great as it allows my skin to drink up the goodness.

Skin&Lab Dr. Pore Tightening Glacial Clay Facial Mask

This is a great comparison to the Secret Nature Volcanic Mask. The texture is creamy and glides on easily. There are these little beads that works as an exfolitator. No perfume smell which is great just the normal clay mask smell.

Overall: Love this product! I would definitely give this a 10/10. At times in the morning when I want that extra cleanser I use this as a cleanser. No redness after using this as mask or cleanser. Leaves the skin feeling very fresh and clean without having it feel like it has stripped away any natural oils.

If I was to repurchase just one of these products, it would be the Skin&Lab clay mask due to not having any redness to my skin after use. I also enjoy the texture/consistency of this product more so than the Secret Nature Volcanic Mask as it dries up really quickly.

I hope you guys enjoy this quick little followup with skin cleansing. Have a great week!
