The Art of Multi-Masking

Face Mask Kit 3

Having heard raves from many a beauty blogger about the Boscia Bright White Face Mask, I was looking to give it try when, lo and behold, I came across this gem of a collection beaming like a beauty homing beacon from the shelf at Sephora.  Pulling me in like a skincare tractor beam, The Art Of Multi-Masking™ Kit from Boscia includes smaller-sized versions of their popular collection of peel-off face masks including the Bright White Mask, Luminizing Black Mask, Cool Blue Calming Mask and Green Tea Oil-Control Mask.

The kit also comes with a synthetic mask application brush and a handy card with directions and step-by-step instructions to apply various multi-mask treatments for occasions including “The Date Night,” ‘The Post-Flight,” and “The Clean Sweep.”

Not only can you try out four different masks to decide which is right for your skin but the smaller-sized tubes make them great to have for your travel bag and with the Christmas season upon us, this collection could make a really neat gift for your favourite skincare-aholic, or, you know, you could treat yourself 😉

The Natural: Amie Spring Clean Deep Cleansing Mask

Amie Cleansing Mask new

We may be heading into Fall but this gentle, calming face mask is some serious Spring cleaning for your skin.  Amie products recently became available in stores in Canada and I’m certainly glad they did!  The brand is from the UK and is a range for sensitive skin by beauty expert Fiona Parkhouse.  The products are made without any parabens, sulphates, mineral oils, petrochemicals or animal extracts and can be used by both vegetarians and vegans. The line includes everything from cleansers and moisturizers to exfoliators and masks, as well as makeup.

If their Spring Clean Deep Cleansing Mask is anything to go by, my bathroom counter, and my skin, will be seeing a lot more of this range.  Made with organic peppermint, white clay and lime butter, a thin layer is applied over the face, left for ten minutes, then washed off with warm water.  The formula is thick but applies really easily, and I LOVE the smell, it was instant calm once that scent hit my nostrils.  The mask leaves skin feeling super soft and deep down clean without any signs of irritation or breakouts so far.  New holy grail product? All I know is that my face = happy.
