If you’ve read my other skincare posts then you know I have a temperamental face. Not cystic acne temperamental but blotchy, red, and congested temperamental. My rosacea which is triggered mostly by certain trigger foods and outdoor allergies makes it so that my face spends a lot of time in a state of inflammation. This inflammation causes my pores to get clogged with any speck of dirt that falls near it, despite my best facial cleaning efforts. One thing leads to another and boom, I’ve got whiteheads everywhere! I tried using charcoal masks when that became popular but all it did was rip off my peach fuzz and the upper layer of my dermis; leading to, you guessed it, more inflammation. But then I discovered Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple Pore Extractor Mask ($18, 1oz tube on Philosophy.com) and it was a pore miracle!
This little tube helps my face so much everytime I use it. It leaves my face feeling smooth, soft, and even hydrated. Plus, thanks to some gentle, natural granules in the mask it gets all the gunk out of my pores without ripping out any of my skin. But the best part is how easy it is to use. All you have to do is wash your face with your favorite cleanser, dry your face thoroughly, and then generously spread the mask over your face.
Once you’ve applied the mask to your face, do some chores around the house, read a book, put on your favorite tv show, or just relax to some music. In about 10 minutes you can wash it off to reveal shiny clear skin. It’s so easy! Once you’ve scrubbed the mask off of your face, you just rinse the remaining mask, splash a little water, dry off and you’re ready to put on your favorite moisturizer and seize the day.
I bought the 1oz tube, which for just $18 seemed like a steal on a Philosophy product. Much to my delight, I have found that the 1oz tube lasts quite a bit. I’m up to 5 treatments at this point and I still have over half of the tube left. But should you be converted or just really bold and trusting of my reviews, you can always purchase the 2.5oz tube which will set you back a mere $35.
Let me know in the comments if you decide to give this product a try. This isn’t a sponsored post so my love for this mask is purely my own. And I LOVE IT! If you have any questions about how the mask works on sensitive skin or how it otherwise feels let me know. As always don’t forget to check back every Monday and Thursday for new posts.
