As you may have seen in my Beauty Haul from last weekend, I recently picked up a couple new masks for myself. I’d been using sample sizes of the Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay and the Fresh Rose Face Mask (I got the 15th Anniversary version for the most beautiful packaging I've ever seen) for awhile, and once they ran out I began really missing both from my routine. After picking up the full size of each I’m here to let you know why they’re even better together.
Let’s start with the Origins mask, or as it will now be known, the only clay mask for me. I’m not trying to be dramatic, but the from the first time I used this, I knew I’d be casting all other clay masks aside. My skin is mostly normal with the tendency to get dehydrated, but all other clay masks I’ve tried have left my skin feeling uncomfortably tight and dry. Because this mask uses the gentler rose clay and aims to brighten the skin as well as purify, this is the most comfortable clay mask I’ve ever used. It also contains little jojoba beads to help exfoliate the skin. After using this mask I’m left with brighter, smoother skin, and I’ve noticed this mask has helped with a few pesky breakouts I’ve been having at the moment.
After the Retexturing Mask, I’ve really been loving using the Fresh Rose Face Mask. Now, I’ll admit I only stumbled upon this combination because I liked how pretty the two products looked next to each other, but they really go hand in hand. After the exfoliating and purifying mask, my skin is ready for a big hit of moisture - once the first mask has sloughed off all the dead skin, my skin is ready to fully absorb whatever I use next. The Fresh Rose Face Mask feels so incredibly soothing and nourishing on the skin, and that’s because there’s not only pure rosewater in the mask but real rose petals, too. It smells absolutely heavenly (if you like the smell of roses) and just feels so relaxing to put on. This mask also has cucumber extract and aloe vera in it to really help calm and soothe redness and inflammation. It really is the perfect mask to put on in the summer heat, but it’s one I’ll definitely reach for in the winter when my skin is parched, too.
I’m a big fan of multi-step masking, and these two masks are really just a perfect fit for one another. After having a nice little pamper session and using both masks, you’ll be left with the most glowing, soothed, and healthy-looking skin. It’s hard for me to not use this combination every day!
Have you tried either of these masks?
