I have been really loving skincare lately, it is something that I have only recently started experimenting with. My skin has always been a bit of a worry for me, I suffer with the odd blemish but my biggest concern is blackheads and large pores. I have always been envious of people with beautifully smooth skin, mine always has these little bumps here and there, and nothing I have tried has fixed this. My favourite skincare item has got to be facial masks. They target specific problems and give your face a good thorough treatment. Plus it gives you an excuse to take some time to yourself.
Manuka Doctor’s Purifying Facial Peel has been getting some hype over on Instagram lately, and when I saw it on sale in Priceline I had to give it go. I had a quick read in-store and the mask sounded like it was right up my alley. I have tried peel-off masks in the past and they were really painful to take off, however the reviews on this were great, so I took the plunge. Recommended for congested skin, this skin clearing mask works well on blemishes, blackheads and sun damaged skin as it lifts dead skin cells, stimulates cell renewal and purifies pores promoting a radiant and glowing complexion, leaving skin plumped & silky soft. The Purifying Facial peel includes a range of active and nourishing ingredients including – Bee Venom, Manuka Honey, Kaolin, Hyaluronic Acids, Vitamin E and various fruit extracts and botanicals.
The formula is thick, sticky and bright white, with a subtle fruity scent. I was a little bit hesitant to smear this on my face due to the feel of the product, it was a little difficult to spread out due to the tackiness of the mask. But once it was on it dried really quickly. The instructions do say to leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes, however I felt the mask lifting after about 10 minutes. I was a little apprehensive to peel of the mask in case it hurt, but it didn’t at all. The mask peeled off almost effortlessly. My skin felt soft and fresh and looked so radiant. I followed the mask up with a toner and night cream and when I woke up the next morning my skin was still glowing and looks oh-so healthy. I have only used this mask 3 times and haven’t noticed any decrease in blemishes or blackheads.
Overall I think it is a great mask for a deep clean. I find peeling off the mask a little cathartic and really enjoy the benefits of using it. I have never used anything from the Manuka Doctor brand before, and this was a great introduction.
Have you used this before? Did you love it as much as I did? If you have any recommendations for my little bumps and blackheads, I’d love to hear them.
