When I heard that Philosophy was introducing a Purity Mask to their skin care collection I became overly excited since their other products work so well on my skin. Other masks either cause breakouts or dryness; sometimes they are so harsh that my skin actually peels! (Attractive, right?) So I had very high hopes for the Philosophy Purity Mask after reading that it was gentle enough to use everyday.
The first time I tried this mask was at night after washing my face with the Purity Facial Wash. It doesn’t take much product to cover your skin and as soon as it turns white you know it’s working! My skin felt fresher and tighter after I used it for the first time, but I wasn’t entirely sold. After all, I know that many times masks can make your skin dry out or in my case, peel. The mask is light, has no mask-like smell and didn’t cause any irritation. Though the directions say you can leave it on for 60=seconds, I leave it on for a couple of minutes while I multi-task on email or check out Instagram. Once it’s done working it’s magic just wash it off with warm water and follow up with Renewed Hope in a Jar.
After long days of wearing makeup and then sweating at the gym, this masks has helped clean out my pores and soften my complexion. My Philosophy beauty routine keeps my skin soft during cold winter months, or hot, humid summers in the South. If this mask is gentle enough for my sensitive skin, then I know other Philosophy lovers will also see the benefits!
