I have some serious love for facial masks. Store bought or homemade I think that they are all awesome. They’re not only relaxing but a great way to “feed” your skin. This Kahina mask has been a total staple of mine since I received a rather large sample of it earlier this fall. It’s described on the website as a multi-tasking mask. One that detoxifies the skin, stimulates collagen, delivers antioxidants and exfoliates. This mask is a powerhouse filled with lovely argan oil, rhassoul clay (this clay is awesome see more info on it here),
extracts of pomegranate and acai, along with a great essential oil blend.
For me it’s been my go to for when my skin is misbehaving. Particularly when it’s breaking out. Seriously zits disappear overnight.
If something does that for me it’s a total keeper.
The texture of the mask is a nice whipped consistency, with the tiniest amount of scrub texture. And it has a nice earthy minty scent. I pop a thin layer all over and then leave it on anywhere from 10 minutes or longer. And BAM! skin is glowing and breakouts are taking a hike. Take that crazy hormonal skin! Since I’ve been using it regularly I’ve noticed a great improvement in my skin. It’s clearer, brighter and has fewer breakouts. I’ll be keeping this in my skincare routine from now until they stop making it. =)
Are masks a part of your skincare routine? What’s your favorite?
This product is a total gem! I was lucky enough to receive this sample of La Bella Figura Cold Pressed Barbary Fig Seed Oil* in my recent Goodebox. Originally it was supposed to be the famed Decouverte Under Eye Repair serum but I think fate intervened. My skin has been so in love with since first application. I had read about Barbary Fig Seed Oil for helping with under eye circles and was anxious to try some. I read more on La Bella Figura’s website that Barbary Fig Seed oil is brimming with antioxidants, Omega-3 and Vitamin E. Ingredients that help to hydrate skin as well as soothe skin that is sensitized or stressed. Pretty much everything I look for this time of year in my skincare.
So at first I was just applying this twice a day as an eye treatment. Then one night out of desperation for help with my dry tender skin I applied it all over and headed to bed. I woke up with the most beautiful clarity to my skin. It was soft and hydrated and I was just astounded. Argan oils really help with my dryness but often don’t take care of my redness/sensitivity. Finding something that takes care of both was kind of amazing.
I’ve played a lot with this sample since I’ve gotten it and have found that not only is it great alone but it also pairs well with other oils. (I tried RMS beauty oil and Olie Biologique Argan)
It also works well under makeup as long as you give it a few minutes between oil, sunscreen and makeup application.
I’ve just ordered a full size** of this as I decided my face cannot live without it.
In all seriousness, I think this is my holy grail of Argan Oils. This is the sample size of oil but I know that I have the full size on my wish list. It has an amazing consistency and smells incredible. I don’t know what it is about this one but my other argan oils haven’t smelled nearly as lovely. Seriously love for this here.
Speaking of amazing smelling things this is divine! I got this in my Goodebox last month and it has steadily become a favorite night treatment for my skin. To me it’s slightly richer than my Argan oil making it great for a night oil. It sinks into my skin overnight making me feel glowing and gorgeous in the morning.
This is a great color! It’s blackened brown with a gray tinge. Fantastic longevity for a cream shadow. I mean girls night out longevity. It totally surprised me with that. I love wearing it smudge along my lash line or as a winged liner.
This is my newest find but I love it already. I’ve been having a few breakouts due to the temperature change and was looking for a lighter weight concealer than my rms or Vapour concealers. This is a very thin almost watery texture but has amazing coverage. I only need the tiniest dot on a blemish to make it disappear.
