Review of Nuxe MASQUE FRAIS HYDRATANT by Nyr
While I understand the need to wash off exfoliating masks, I never understood why you would have to wash off a hydrating one after 10 to 15 minutes. It sounds like a huge waste of this step in your skincare routine, as you're washing off all that goodness.. *enter nuxe*
When I do my weekly mask to combat bumpy skin, clogged pores, ingrown hairs, acné, I like to start off with Dermalogica's gentle cream exfoliant.
Now I don't wash this off after 15 minutes either, I like to get my money's worth out of it. Leave it on for 1 to 1,5 hours and just do whatever you do to pass time. Every now and then I massage the 'dried AHA/BHA mask' into my skin, and feel the clogged pores going away.
When I feel satified with smoothness I wash it all off & pat dry. (I have even had this mask on for 3,5 hours cause i forgot i had it on. Didn't irritate a thing)
Now for the Nuxe mask, this applies like a dream since I just had an exfoliating mask on my skin for like 1,5 hours. So I apply it all over in a thin layer and pat it in. It sinks in really fast and leaves a little film that goes away within minutes.
This is all I do on 'masknight' as the mask is hydrating enough and will be used as nightcream too. Don't be fooled by thinking this would not be enough. If you were to apply your nightcream over this, you could end up with clogged pores as you overmoisturized.
In the morning you will wake up with healthy, glowing and perfectly smooth skin! At least I do.
That's what I call 'getting your money's worth' out of a not exactly cheap skincare product.
Seriously, why waste all that goodness by washing it of after 15 min!
