Makeup and Muses: What's My Masque-Rade

11/07/2012

I've been using the Eminence Pink Grapefruit Clarifying Masque for about a week and a half now. I got it from Apothica because I've used Eminence products before in a Makeup and Muses post with good results.

I picked the organic grapefruit masque because the product description used the phrase "under siege by blemishes" and that's exactly how I was feeling a few weeks ago. I really couldn't catch a break...only a breakout.The Eminence Pink Grapefruit Clarifying Masque is said to detoxify your skin with the grapefruit and biocomplex ingredients (whatever that means). Well it means the ingredients should brighten the blemishes and protect against free radicals through vitamins A, C and E. Kaolin Clay is what's used to exfoliate the skin, and it's great for dry, sensitive me.

1. Cleanse your face and dry it
2. Apply a thin layer of the masque
3. Leave it on for about 5 minutes
4. Remove after the allotted time with a damp cloth
Pros
♥ Satisfying scent
♥ Easy to apply 
♥ Cool flecks in the clay
♥ Option to wear like a masque or leave on like a moisturizer
Cons
♥ A slight tingling when initially applied
♥ Haven't seen as much of an improvement as expected

Although I do like this Eminence product a lot, I haven't really seen those biocomplex ingredients kick in just yet. I do feel like it exfoliates and leaves my skin feeling smooth, so I will keep using it for a few more weeks to hopefully see better results.

Have you used Eminence products before, or any clay masques?

  7. One of my friends introduced me to this skin care line last year. It's really good and I love their natural products. I'm not surprised that this works really good. Excellent review Cheryl.

  10. It definitely sounds interesting! Most products you have to give a good 4 weeks before results... I bet your skin will be feeling amazing by then! Keep us posted!

  15. I used to wear masks like this when I was in middle school, just for fun. But then it got to be too much of a headache and I quit. I probably should start doing some kind of face regimen now that I'm inching towards 30. Lol.

    Too bad the mask didn't work out the way you hoped. I'd give it a few more tries at least. Who knows maybe it'll kick in after a few weeks.

  20. Your camera stole the show. LOL. I saw the mask, and then I saw your lens, and immediately lost all focus...(ooh that was an awesome pun!)

    Which lens do you use as your primary?

    And I used to use Eminence - I used to work at a spa that used it. Now I really love Obagi. Beauty products are so fun!

  23. Thanks for the review! I've been looking for something like a face mask or something to really help the blemishes on my face. I'd like to try this product but everyone's skin reacts differently to different products. I was thinking of going with something like Neutrogena but I don't want anything to dry my face out.

    Looks like I something to add to my wish list.

    Thanks for posting this!

  24. best clay masque hands down is the Queen Helene - Mint Julep Masque. its been around for decades and is one of those "grandmother's secrets". it tingles when u put it on but not in a bad way, a refreshing minty way. i have very acneprone sensitive skin and this stuff doesnt irritate me. it dries out my zits and leaves my skin feelings so soft. i think im going to use it now!! its cheap too... you can get it for only $4 at ulta or even walgreens. https://www.google.com/shopping/product/17755221247249688609?q=mint%20julep%20mask&hl=en&rlz=1C2CHMY_enUS336&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.&bpcl=39314241&biw=1440&bih=779&sa=X&ei=4u-4UNS4BY7p0QHrs4GIAg&ved=0CFcQxBUwAA
