I’m a mask aficionado. I love using them and love the extra pampering they give my skin. As much as I enjoy a good sheet mask it’s a cream mask that is actually easier to use and find those fit into a daily routine. While there’s nothing like a home spa day, there’s also nothing like a mask you can apply while getting ready for the day or night without any muss and fuss. That’s what makes Burt’s Bees Mask collection so great. There are 3 different masks that all have their own purpose. I’ve used all three and can easily tell you that you’ll love them.
Burt’s Bees Detoxifying Clay Mask is a 99% natural clay mask that has been formulated to remove dirt, oil, and toxins from your skin. If you have clogged pores or dull looking skin this is a great mask for you. Not only does the Detoxifying Clay Mask have the benefits of clay but it also has superfruit ingredients like acai which is loaded with rich antioxidants and nutrients that benefit your skin.
The Detoxifying Clay Mask dries down in about 15 minutes. It tightens but doesn’t crack on my skin. I remove it with a warm wet washcloth preferably in the shower. I don’t use a clay mask often but when I do I notice that my pores look so much better.
Next is the Burt’s Bees Exfoliating Clay Mask which removes oil and eliminates impurities while instantly mattifying skin. This contains Kakadu Plum which I’ve found in much more expensive products. Kakadu Plum is rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants. Other ingredients are avocado and Vitamin C. This mask is another that helps refine pores and unclogs them.
This is a great mask for oily and acne-prone skin. It exfoliates but it’s not harsh, it never tears skin. Since it has clay it acts to help absorb excess oil and extract dirt. The way I use this is to apply it before I get in the shower, leave it on for 10 minutes and go in the shower. I then massage it onto my skin and wash off under the showerhead. I come out clean and refreshed and feel that way for several days.
Now for Burt’s Bees Hydrating Overnight Mask. This 99% natural formula is the one that contains the best ingredients like avocado, a superfruit rich in fatty acids, and prebiotics, which help support a healthy microbiome.
This isn’t a quick fix but it’s quick to use. Use it at night and wake up to more refreshed looking skin. The way to apply this is put on a thin even layer and let it sit for 10 minutes. Then massage it onto your skin and leave it on for the night to help hydrate your skin. It is really a great hydrator and the fragrance of it is so nice. It reminds me of cherries.
You can find Burt’s Bees masks at all the usual places that the brand is sold ($14.99 each). If you want to try the travel size you’ll need to buy from their website and pick them up for $3.49. So far I’ve gotten 3 uses out of each travel size and I’m nowhere near done.
I’d been planning a mask giveaway for our 9th anniversary so why not include a travel size Burt’s Bees Mask too. We’ll have two US winners (email subscribers) and they’ll win similar but not exact packages. Plan a girl’s night or plenty of spa days for yourself with all of these masks. The giveaway ends on March 18th at 11:59 pm Eastern time. Be sure you comment since that and subscribing are the mandatory requirements. Good luck beauties! — Marcia
