Since I’m off scrubbing (after a revelatory talk with Renée Rouleau), I’ve been trying different exfoliating masks. Because even if I’m not scrubbing, I want to know I’ve reached a deep, dead skin-shedding clean.
Murad’s Pomegranate Exfoliating Mask serves a multitude of purposes: it has anti-oxidant rich pomegranates, hydrates, brightens, dissolves oils, and smoothes the surface by removing old, dull skin. Since it has so many benefits, it’s great for all skin types, and it also smells wonderful. With a gel-like consistency, the mask seems mild at first. Then about three minutes in, you start to experience tingling and heat – so you know something’s happening. The nice tingling – a cool sensation like tea tree oil or peppermint – lingers after you rinse it off.
This is as good as, or better than, a physical scrub. Minutes later, my skin was baby soft and silky smooth. I even had a blemish that vanished the day after using this mask; it pulls oils and impurities from the skin, so if you’re prone to breakouts this will help.
Each pack comes with six masks, so make it a routine. Use Murad twice weekly and your pores will be so clear you won’t need extractions on your next facial (I never get extractions anyway). The convenient, individual packaging is perfect for traveling, or even at the gym if you have a sauna there. Go on and create your own personal mini-spa! At Murad for 22.50.
