Multi masking seems to be really having its moment in the beauty industry. Brands are even bringing out ranges of masks that are designed to compliment each other perfectly. If you didn't know what multi masking is it's basically using 2 or more masks at the same to address different skin problems. Which is super beneficial for those with combination skin or have many skin concerns. So today I wanted to talk about the masks I've discovered that work in perfect sync with each other to address many different skin issues! For reference I have dehydrated skin that is prone to breaks outs.
Una Brennan Super Facialist Salicylic Acid Mask | £9.99 & L'oreal Pure Clay Glow Mask | £7.99
As I said, breakouts aren't uncommon for me so I want a good mask that is going to help clear them up. This Salicylic Acid mask does just that. With Salicylic acid being great for unblocking pores and reducing the oils that cause them, this mask is great! However, while this does leave my skin feeling clean, fresh and help reduce the size of my blemishes it is far too drying to use all over my face. So I like to pair it with the L'oreal one. This Orange paste helps exfoliate and lift away dead skin cells to reveal brighter more radiant skin. Which it really does. It even has scrubby particles for extra exfoliation. This isn't too drying for me either. So I use the Una Brenna one on my T-Zone, where I get more oily and on any blemishes, then the L'oreal one on the rest of my face. I leave these on until they are fully dry.
My next duo comes in the form of REN and Origins. Both amazing masks in their own right. The REN offering is easily one of the best face masks I've ever used. It's an AHA based (see more about AHAs here) mask that exfoliates, brightens, reduces fine lines and gives skin a more refined look. And this really does live up to all its claims! I do like to use this on its own but sometimes I want a double whammy, super, at home facial at the same time! So I add the Origins mask to blemishes and down my nose. This mask really gives skin a deep cleanse, and refines pores. So it's perfect for those areas.
Una Brennan Salicylic Acid Mask | £9.99
& Indeed Labs Hydraluron Sheet Mask | £19.99 (pack of 4)
The Una Brennan mask makes another appearance! Ok, so this isn't technically multi masking at the same time because I use one after the other. Sometimes, I want that super clean feeling that Una Brennan mask has to offer but like I said before, it's far too drying. So when I do want to use it all over my face, I follow it with the Hydroloyon Sheet Mask. The Sheet Mask is amazing for adding moisture and leaving skin more plump, and radiant look. Its like an intense version of their famous Hydroloyon serum. Which contains an acid that can hold loads of water in the skin, for super hydration. After I washed the Una Brennan one off, I like to sit with it on for about 15mins and then massage in the remaining serum. And I'm left with super clean but hydrated skin.
& The Body Shop Oat and Honey Mask | £10
Both of these masks promise to exfoliate and nourish. But I don't find the Body Shop one over exfoliating, but it's still an amazing mask because it has brilliant nourishing properties. It leaves my skin so soft and healthy looking. It contains honey which is well know to be great from the skin and oats which are a gentle exfoliator. I couldn't actually find this to link, so I really hope it hasn't been discontinued. The Mario one is definitely more exfoliating, but nourishing at the same time. It contains enzymes and vitamins to lift away dead skin cells and nourish the new skin underneath. This is another mask that I like to use on its own but sometime my skin is just to dehydrated for that so I like to use it on my T-Zone and the Body Shop on the rest of my face. I like to leave these on for about 15 mins and after removing them I'm left with glowing, nourished but exfoliated skin.
So there are some my multi mask combos I'm loving at the moment. Do you have any?
Have you tired and of these? What are your thoughts?
Until next time...
