Bex tries Multi-masking



It's only recently I've begun to experiment with masks that go beyond my normal exfoliation and hydration. Sheet masks have been a revelation and I have much more to say on that matter very soon. For the moment I shall focus on the idea of multi-masking. 

Multi-masking is one of the latest trends in skin care and I have to ask, why did it take us this long?!

So what is multi-masking? 

Ever bought a face mask, used it and found that it helped fix your oily pores but it really wrecked you dry zones? Ever wanted that on trend exfoliating mask (you know the brand I mean!) but were scared that your sensitive areas might be overwhelmed? Well this is where multitasking your precious face mask time comes in. 

Now I'm very much at entry level when it comes to multi-masking. Pictured above and below you'll see a very restrained duo of moisturising and cleansing mud masks from Glam Glow. The cleansing benefits of Powermud I am hoping will target some very recent blocked pore issues I've been having and as per usual I am fighting a daily battle with dryness by introducing Thirstymud into my hydration armoury.  



Like I said, entry level. 

My next step into multi-masking was to introduce serious targeting with the use of plumping rose based fibre masks for the eyes (courtesy of my trip to Sephora) an avocado moisturising mask for the forehead and down the neck, Glam Glow Youthmud on on the nose and chin (for extra strength cleansing and exfoliating of those pores) and finally Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Mask on the cheeks. I went all out and it paid off. 


 Let me tell you my skin feels glorious. After washing it all off ensuring that I used  all those particles within the masks to thoroughly exfoliate I finished it off with a layer of La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Masque. Yes this is technically a fifth masque but as I've mentioned before on this blog I basically use it as a moisturiser. 

I'm definitely a convert to this technique. It's given me buzz to branch from my normal routine and try new products (genius marketing), the only thing I need to perfect now is storage for all those half used sachets! I see lots of little pots in my future.

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems.
This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take.

And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low Molec…
