I am definitely a huge fan of facial masks. Whenever my skin is doing something I’m unhappy with, it’s always a mask that saves the day. I love browsing Vitacost for new masks to try, and recently noticed this one from Acure. The words ‘cell stimulating’ sound a bit weird for a mask, but I love trying new things. I’ve been wanting to learn more about what Acure has to offer, and for a good price I figured why not start here.
Work over your cells with the power of Moroccan argan stem cells and chlorella, a true synergy of rejuvenation. French green clay draws out impurities while Moroccan argan oil and CoQ10 provide moisture.
I love clay based masks that draw out impurities, but find they can dry out my skin. The Cell Stimulating Mask from Acure is perfect for my skin because it draws out impurities but also provides moisture! When I use this mask, my skin feels baby soft afterward, and only needs a light moisturizer as a follow up.
This mask is a gross green color. BUT that also shows me it’s really packed with natural ingredients. This color really screams nature. I apply the mask all over my face and let dry for about 15 minutes, maybe more if I get distracted. It doesn’t get too hard where you can’t move your face, but does dry down.
The only thing I haven’t been loving about this mask is the washing off process. When it combines with water it gets slippery and soapy. I find it hard to get off, and large soap bubbles form that feel unlike any other skincare item I have. Mixed with water, it honestly feels pretty gross. It would be much easier to wash off in the shower, but I rarely take showers at night, which is when I use this.
I use this mask every week or so on days where my skin looks like it needs a good cleaning. I’ll wash my face to open up the pores, and apply a thin layer. Afterword I follow up with some toner and moisturizer. It helps my already larger pores appear smaller and cleaner, which is always what I’m looking for!
