We all like a shortcut don't we?
Sometimes when I don't want to make the effort to be a proper adult I'll eat crisps for tea and iron my shirt with my hair straighteners. That said, when it comes to my skincare routine I'm all about the commitment, even if I'm super tired and just want to lie down in my orange foundation.
I think this dedication comes from my 'headbrace and acne' days, which believe it or not wasn't a winning combination for me. After lots of trial and error I finally sorted out my skin, and as long as I look after it really well I only get an occasional breakout every now and then (yay).
Anyway, I've been trying a few masks to really up my skincare game and decided hey, I'll give the Sanctuary Spa 5 Minute Thermal Detox mask (£10.50) a go because why not? I've never really found a mask that totally blows me away and this one had good reviews, so I decided to buy it and see what I thought.
To cut a long story short this now my must have staple mask, and I can't recommend it enough for problematic/oily skin types.
Firstly, it's a total dream to use, heating up on the skin when you apply it to really draw out your impurities. I've been using this once a week/every fortnight on my oily patches and it's made a massive improvement to the texture and tone of my face. A small amount really went a long way and as it contains charcoal and kaoloin clay it balanced my skin without any redness or sensitivity too.
I absolutely love this mask and can't recommend it enough if you have oily skin that needs a little TLC.
