Mask Monday:: Avon Clearskin Pore Penetrating Black Mineral Mask

When I first saw this mask I was hoping that it would be dupe for the GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Mask (which I’ve done a review on) and about $60.00 cheaper.  While it is a good mask it doesn’t in my opinion hold a candle to the GlamGlow Mask.  It works in a similar manner; it goes on black and as it dries turns grey as it ‘draws out impurities’.  I like using this as an everyday mask and reserve the GlamGlow for special occasions as it really does transform your skin.

I also compared the ingredient list of the two masks and they do have some similar ingredients but not enough to say that the Avon is a dupe for GlamGlow.

Ahhh, what this you’re sharing with us today Lara, a brownie recipe? Smell like a brownie? Yes.  Look like brownie batter? Yes.  Taste good?  Um No!

This is is a Fresh Face Mask from Lush called ‘Cupcake’.  If you are not familiar with the fresh face mask line from Lush, they are facial masks made from fresh, perishable ingredients that you can only buy in a Lush store.  This is what Lush has to say about this mask…

Cupcake is our one Fresh Face Mask that was created for a bit of fun. At the time, our inventor’s daughter was a young girl having slumber parties with her girlfriends every weekend, so he whipped up a chocolate mint mask for young, oily skin (officially solidifying him as the coolest dad ever). If you suffer from oily or spotty skin, slather it in this cocoa concoction. With spearmint oil to cool, vanilla absolute to calm redness and Rhassoul mud to deeply cleanse- Cupcake is a sweet savior for young faces. Smothering yourself in chocolate for clearer skin? Every teenage girl’s dream…

While I am many years removed from being a teenager, my skin hasn’t seemed to realize that yet.  I still suffer from extremely oily acne prone skin, so this mask is a favorite.  It smells yummy and after rinsed off my skin feels clarified and fresh.
