So, way back in the day, I blogged about the skin care line that I use: Mary Kay Botanical Effects. And when I say I wrote this post awhile ago, I do mean awhile. Like, it's dated November 14, 2012. So the follow up to that post is finally coming four months later. Better late than never, right?!
|The Botanical Effects line - with my favorite product up front!|
In that post, I shared that there are four steps to the system, and that one of the steps is my absolute favorite beauty product ever. As in, if I had to go away to a desert island, and I could only take one product with me this is the product I would take. This product is the Mary Kay Botanical Effects Mask.
|My bottle is getting a little empty :(|
This mask is heaven. I always had a poor opinion of masks, because I hated the smell of a certain sulfur-based mask (yes, I'm looking at you Proactiv!) And they always dried out my face a little too much. The MK mask is the perfect compromise. It leaves my skin feeling so amazingly smooth. The first few times I used it, I kept rubbing my cheeks like a crazy person, then running up to Husband and saying "Touch my face!" Pretty sure he thought I was crazy, but he even commented how smooth my skin felt after using the mask. It also helps clean pores...I've had a time or two where the mask seems to pull a pimple out faster, which sounds like a bad thing, but it also makes the pimple go away so much faster it's insane! If I've got a particularly nasty pimple, I'll rub a bit on it before bed and leave it on overnight. By morning, it's so reduced it's barely noticeable.
In the winter, when my skin is a little bit drier, I tend to use the mask about 2-3 times a week. In summer, when I'm outside a lot and my skin gets all oily and nasty, I've used the mask as many as 5 times a week and I've never had any problems with overdrying. Because the mask isn't filled with nasty chemicals, it doesn't bleach my towels to some unrecognizable color, either, which is a pretty big win.
Any way you squeeze it, this mask is two thumbs up, fantastic, fine holiday fun. Love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
