The Mask I Rely On For Calming My Breakouts

Returning from holiday, I knew the first thing I was going to do when I stepped foot in my home was to give my skin some much needed TLC. Over indulgence is synonymous with any annual leave I take, alongside changing seasons, changing altitudes and changing sleep habits. Needless to say, traveling wreaked absolute havoc on my face, but I knew exactly where to start: Pai's Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA Mask.

A Bit Of Background:

My skin is a work in progress. Most of the time, I pour my energy into fighting my post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation and scarring, but (seemingly out of nowhere) fresh breakouts appear and it's time to restrategise. So before anything else, the goal is to calm the breakout monster down before I swoop in with a surprise attack. This mask makes all the difference for every kind of breakout that plagues this goofy face of mine, from whiteheads and blackheads, to all too painful cystic acne.

How Does It Work?

  • In just 10 minutes, this Deep Cleanse AHA Mask helps clarify & brighten skin tone

  • It leaves even sensitive skin types feeling refreshed, soft and smooth

  • Anti-inflammatory Copaiba helps to removes excess dirt and oils without stripping the skin

  • AHAs derived from pink pomelo (one of my all time fave fruits) help to gently resurface the skin

  • It comes with a little muslin cloth that adds a tiny touch of exfoliation during removal

Oh, and THE SMELL. HOLY COW, THE SMELL. This mask is fragranced with a beautiful mixture of fruits and florals, which make the experience that much more luxurious.

How Do I Use It?

1. On a freshly and gently cleansed face, apply an even, generous layer of the mask to your face.

2. Send a Snapchat selfie to your friends, because everyone appreciates the hilarity of distorted masked face.

3. Task while you mask! Find an activity to during these 10 minutes of grime-fighting action. I recommend downloading the podcast episodes you intend to listen to on your commute tomorrow.

4. Gently remove, and resume your skincare routine. 

What Does Everyone Say About It?

I love this mask!

Tegan

After wearing makeup all day, my face becomes really dry except for my chin which becomes oily. My skin is prone to breakouts when I'm stressed or using particular makeup just around my jawline, but when I use the mask it settles all that down immediately. It really does help my skin become balanced.

Good mask!

Sham

I have combination & sensitive skin. At first try, I wasn't convinced but after few tries now, I'm hooked. The mask lightens my scars, refreshes my skin and all without drying it out. Love that the AHA is gentle on skin. It would be suitable for breakout prone skin and most skin types except dry/mature skin.

Cleared up all of my forehead congestion!!

Bec

Gentle but so so effective! I had a sudden but very stubborn bout of forehead congestion that my usual products weren't able to clear up but this mask did a great job without drying out my skin. It took about a week of nightly use to clear up all of the congestion and there was absolutely no irritation, even though I am not a regular AHA user. This is a great mask for people with sensitive skin or...
