Skincare Routine Pt 2: Weekly Treatments


This is the second part of my skincare routine which covers what scrubs and masks I have been using lately. I think it is important to give your skin a bit of pampering once in awhile to both calm your mind and your skin. I personally love exfoliating to slough away dead cells to reveal bright, plump skin or using a peel off mask to see what has been buried deep inside my pores. I have reviewed most of these products already on my blog so I will link those reviews instead of repeating myself.

These are products I use once or twice a week a few days apart. For example, I will use a scrub like Exfolikate on Monday and then the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask on Thursday. I always apply these products on my skin after cleansing and before my night skincare routine. For scrubs I typically use them on damp or wet skin while masks are applied on dry skin.

I don't believe I have ever mentioned the Queen Helene Julep Mask despite its affordable price tag (around $5 at drugstores). I use this mask when my face feels congested and overly oily which is mainly in the summer. I hardly notice a difference in my skin after using this though so I would not repurchase and I wish it would just hurry up and run out....

The Olay Microdermabrasion and Peel Kit is one of my favorite treatments and I actually favor it over Exfolikate. Please read my original review to find out some more about it.

The Face Shop's White Mud Nose Pack is something I use every other week or less because it is a strong peel off mask. After a hot shower, I dry my nose and apply a thick layer of this mask over my nose and surrounding inner cheeks. The goo hardens and when you peel it off, all the dry sebum and nastiness that gathers to create blackheads and whiteheads are lifted out of your skin. I really enjoy using this and would highly recommend it if you have access to The Face Shop.
