Masks are such an interesting skincare step. I can go a couple of months without using one, then I remember them and boom!, instant complexion boost! They can help with anti-aging, acne, large pores, texture — so many issues can be helped in just a few minutes!
Here are a few I have recently been sent:
This fall, L’OCCITANE is pleased to introduce the NEW! Divine Cream Mask ($145 USD) — a cream-based mask with a rich, melting texture, accompanied by a special 24K gold-plated massage applicator. When the mask is used in tandem with the applicator, it is better absorbed into skin for firmer, smoother and more luminous results. The key ingredients are Immortelle organic essential oil, Shea Butter and Cistus which is formulated with a high concentration of aromatic molecules.
What I think: I have just a received a sample of this mask and have tried it once. It has an herbals scent and is very rich and creamy on. To use it, I massage it into clean skin with the smooth side of the applicator, then I use the textured side of the applicator and move in circular movements all over the face to assist in boosting skin’s microcirculation. Then, I rub the rest of the product in and let it absorb
I like to apply this mask at night. By the next morning, my skin is so glowy! I am excited to use this twice a week with my regular skincare regimen.

What I think: I don’t have a lot of blemishes, but my skin has felt a bit clogged lately with all of the sunscreen and makeup I have worn this summer. So I applied this mask and left it on for about 10 minutes, because I do have sensitive skin. After use, my skin looked so clean and smooth. This is something that I can use once a week to keep my skin clear.
