That endless quest to find the perfect face mask... Especially for us who have sensitive and acne prone skin. I mean, the struggle is real. Can you relate?
I recently ordered the amethyst infused Clarify & Brighten Face Mask from Nourished3. Now, normally I wouldn't be so hyped about a mask but since I've been following the creator (Annie Jaffrey) on YouTube for years I was a 100% sure that if this mask wasn't top quality, nothing would be. Annie is a perfectionist, like myself. She has also been struggling with her skin over the past few years and tried every product under the sun, just like me. So just the fact that she developed her own product, based on all that knowledge she has gained throughout the years, speaks volumes.
So what does it do? The mask contains a powerful 7% blend of AHA and BHA acids. This exfoliates and resurfaces the skin while vitamin C helps to brighten and reduce pigmentation. There are also a gentle blend of bentonite and kaolin clay, sulfur and zinc that helps to cleanse the skin on a deeper level. These ingredients are all good fo removing toxins. Lastly, to hydrate the mask is packed with niacinamide, jojoba and aloe vera to soothe and nourish the skin.
How to use it? This is the best part. You don't have to walk around waiting for the mask to do its job. Just let it sit on your face for 2-3 minutes and then rinse. It takes literally NO time! And don't fear the redness. It disappears after a maximum om 30 minutes. Recommended use is once a week. I always do my masking on Sundays and afterwards I apply a calming toner followed by either a nourishing night mask or a sheet mask packed with moisture. This allows the skin to calm after the quite aggressive acidic treatment.
I have been using this mask for about two months now and I absolutely love it. It truly purifies the skin and leaves it a retouched look and feel. It doesn't irritate the skin like many other resurfacing treatments which I love. So basically it's the perfect blend of attack and restore. Couldn't have done it better myself...
But what about the crystals? Well, the amethyst crystal is known for its balancing and calming properties. In this particular mask tiny milled crystals are infused in the formula to give the skin AND the soul soothing and calming benefits. And this is where the brand's true essence comes to life. Nourished3 believes in the power of blending nature and science to create that perfect balance of well-being. And with my own background and research I couldn't agree more... 💜
