Face masks are not reserved for fancy spa days in my book. I adore putting on a good mask and
binge watching Orange is the New Black relaxing at least a couple of times a week. My latest obsession has been the Rosehip Bioregenerate Rapid Radiance Mask and the Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA Mask from Pai Skincare.
Pai Skincare is quickly becoming one of my favourite skincare brands. They are an organic brand and specifically cater to sensitive and reactive skin. Now I don’t actively seek out organic products, I’m all for the chemicals. But sometimes it’s nice to have some super gentle lotions and potions to mix it up. My skin is what I would describe as sensitive prone, easily irritated and prone to redness across my nose, cheeks and décolletage. Put it this way, when I walk out from having a facial I don’t have that glow like J Lo. Actually I do glow though. Usually beet red. Attractive. But it all calms down within an hour. So I was really keen on giving these two Pai masks a try and see just how gentle they were.
I can’t say I was left disappointed. Nor was I too surprised as my experience with Pai thus far has been amazing. If you are after a mask that leaves your skin refreshed, supple and redness free, you must try these! So I guess you’re now wondering if they are so gentle, are they even effective? Well, yes. Yes they are.
Here’s the rundown on each of these. The Pai Skincare Rosehip Bioregenerate Rapid Radiance Masks claims to restore radiance of dull complexions, reduce redness, restore moisture levels and soothe sensitivity. It contains Rosehip, strawberry leaf extract and a host of other botanicals to give you your most radiant face. Apply your mask, leave for 8-10 mins, rinse off and voilà, glowy skin central.
My favourite of the two would have to be the Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA Mask. Formulated with Kaolin clay, Copaiba and Pink Pomelo (natural AHA) to give your pores a deep clean and help with excess oil control this mask leaves my skin so incredibly comfortable. The claims of no dryness or tightness are true! You know that feeling when you take off a mud mask and your skin feels like it’s being pulled in every direction? Not so here. Suffice to say, this one definitely pulls some gunk out of those pores. I usually wake to a spot or two the morning after using this mask. But it’s all good. There’s only one direction that gunk has to leave your skin and unfortunately it’s up onto your face. It clears quick though, but I would suggest not using this particular mask the day or three before a big event.
This duo of masks from Pai Skincare gets two big thumbs up from me. Have you tried them? Or Pai Skincare in general? Tell me your thoughts in the comments, I’d love to hear!
