Last week I received a Bioactive Face Mask for Problem Skin from TurBliss to try out and review.
As with all face masks, before using it, you should cleanse your face of cosmetics and environmental microdust. When that is done, it is time for the face mask.
When opening the beautifully designed jar, you can see dark deep brown balneological peat. Since it is a peat mask, its consistency is similar to the Bioactive Peat Mask for All Skin Types, which I mentioned in my post entitled December Empties.
I love that the mask is vegan, 100% natural, wild harvested and hand made. How Estonian peat ended up in the cute jar, read here.
Sometimes, I use the mask while I take a shower. After I do my hair procedures, I apply it to my face and continue with a body scrub. Ten minutes later, I rinse it off with along with the conditioner in my hair and the scrub on my body. There are a few times however, that I have used the mask as part of my evening routine, and not in the shower. I apply it to my face after taking my makeup off. At first I was afraid it would dry too quickly, but I was wrong. I noticed it drying out a bit after the seventh minute. To fix that, I ran my fingers under the tap and smoothly, with circular motions, moistened those dry patches. With peat masks you should never let them get dry on your face. That will prevent letting the peat do its magic. Plus, it will be harder to wash off the mask.
I found applying it to my face easy and problem free. Despite its wet, creamy consistency it was easy to smear on my face. It didn’t drip, and stayed put where I wanted it to be. Only when I used it in the shower, I noticed slight running of the mask around nose/lip area. But then again, you are in the shower so it shouldn’t be a problem.
The scent of the mask is subtle, fresh and pleasantly earthy. For me, it puts me in mind of a chilly and sunny spring afternoon, right after a rain shower.
After the mask, my skin was soft and smooth. Even though the mask felt light on my skin, the teeny-tiny peat particles cleansed my pores and removed the dead skin cells. It cleansed my skin deeply and helped to control oil production. I think it is one of the key elements of taking care of problem skin.
There was few times when my face reddening lightly after using, but it faded out quickly within a few minutes. The reddening is caused by the increase of microcirculation.
The smooth soft feeling lasts for few days. Even after a good night’s sleep followed by a long day in the office, my skin still looked stress free. I didn’t notice any new pimples or other skin problems.
After using it for a week and a half, my skin has a better complexion, and it is almost acne free.
On the package it says:
“Humic and fulvic acids help boost cell renewal and restore normal functioning of the skin. Bioactive humic substances penetrate deep into the skin, regulate sebum production and superficial dryness. Minimizes pores, improves skin texture, calms irritated skin and alleviates inflammation. Suitable for sensitive skin.
Apply mask on face avoiding gentle eye and lip areas. Leave on for 10 min (max), on sensitive skin for 5 min (max). Wet the mask slightly to avoid drying. Remove with damp cloth or rinse thoroughly. Slight reddening might occur due to the increase of microcirculation.
Use 1-3 times per week.”
