Ah, here we are in the throws of winter. It seems more than ever there’s snow and more snow. With all the cold temps and blistering winds, I feel like my skin is taking a beating. It’s dry, red and blotchy. But, I’ve found a cure.
Needless to say, I’ve been spending a lot of time held up at home this winter. Warm baths, roaring fires and the perfect excuse for an “at home” facial.
This at home facial is a must have for any gal looking for some relief.
I found this brand through Birchbox. It was highly rated so I decided to give it a whirl. This mask is called “I need to heal.” Sounds like just what I need. The cloth sheets are infused with aloe leaf juice and cucumber extract as well as other hydrating ingredients. It is exactly what it sounds like, a sheet. It’s cut to form your face with cutouts for the eyes, nose and mouth. Think Jason in Friday the 13th
Well let me tell you. I put that mask on, soaked in the tub and 20 minutes later, my face felt like a newborns bottom. Smooth, soft and most importantly hydrated. To get the most out of the ingredients, they recommend rubbing the remaining liquid into your skin after you remove the mask.
A box of 6 will run you $55, not so bad if you compare it to a visit to the spa. They also offer a firming mask. That’s next up on my list.
