Living in the city can be a real problem for your skin. Especially when you live in a big dense city with a lot of pollution like Los Angeles. I have definitely noticed how my skin has suffered from moving here. I am always trying to find great products to help my skin looking fresh, young and glowing. As the season change, my skin changes as well. But, it will always be a combination of an oily t-zone and dry to normal.
I got the opportunity to try the new Bioré Blue Agave Baking Soda Whipped Nourishing Detox Mask and the Bioré Blue Agave Baking Soda Balancing Pore Cleanser. Please note that the Detox Mask is not suited for people with sensitive skin as it contains menthol.
As mentioned, this cleanser is well suited for anyone with combination skin. The cleanser exfoliates dry skin and helps deep clean your skin. It also removes dirt, oil and clean out your pores. The cleanser is oil free and has a pH balanced-formula which will leave your skin smooth and refreshed. I personally saw instant results the morning after using the Cleanser. My pores are visibly less noticeable, and my skin feels soft and clean. The product was not harsh on my skin and I feel like I had a more balanced skin tone all over my face with less redness than usual. Blue Agave is known for soothing and nourishing the skin, so it makes sense that my skin looks and feel so good.
So besides for cleansing out the dirt and pollution. Why not use a mask to go even deeper and replenish your skin? All you need is 3-5 minutes (do not leave the mask on for longer than 5 minutes). The menthol in the detox mask creates an intense pore-tingly clean. The mask is whipped so it has a creamy texture and is very easy to apply onto skin. Once applied it has a cooling sensation and a small tingle. The menthol did not affect my skin in a negative way at all and now my skin feels so clean and smooth!
*Please note: Not for sensitive skin consumers or those with sensitives to menthol as it may cause short term flushing of the skin.*0
