I was lucky enough to receive the soap and glory mask and peel mask as a gift. I featured this product in a previous wish list post so as you can imagine I was super excited to receive it. The thing that drew me to this product was the fact that it contains Salicylic acid which helps unclog pores and is often used to treat mild acne. At the moment I am struggling a little with acne and a very oily T-zone which gave me ammunition to try out this product. I have been applying the mask focusing on my T-zone at least once a week.
I love that the mask is in a tub, so you can select how much product you would like to use each time. This is much easier to use in comparison to masks in sachets and also less messy. The mask itself smells lovely and fresh and is a pale green colour. When applied to my face, the mask does not irritate me in any way, even when applied over my acne. When the mask dries, it is still easy for me to move my face. I could even make silly faces and the mask would not crack. This is really important to me, as I can continue to do whatever I like while wearing the product. Half of the time I forget I have it on my face and wonder why I’m getting strange looks from my family. It confuses me a little that it’s named a ‘peel’, because it doesn’t cause the skin to peel and the mask itself cannot be peeled off – you have to rinse it off. I found this a little disappointing as I was looking forward to trying something different.
However, the product as a whole does not disappoint me. When I use the mask, my skin appears to look brighter. My acne does look reduced which is the main reason I wanted to use this product. However, in the long term this does not seem to be helping to reduce my acne in the long term, but I guess that’s a big ask from a facial mask. As the claims state, my pores do look visibly reduced and my skin looks much clearer and way less oily in the T-zone. Therefore I would definitely recommend this product if you are battling oily skin.
