Hello and Happy Masking Sunday!
This week, I used Origins Maskimizer and the Ole Henricksen Lemon Strip Flash Peel, applied with my elf masking tool.
The Origins Maskimizer is sprayed onto clean, dry skin before the mask is applied. It is supposed to open pores and make skin more receptive to the benefits of any mask. Does it work? Meh. I've used up my sample and do not plan to repurchase.
I am on a quest to use up some older items, so I reached for my Ole Henricksen Lemon Strip Flash Peel. To be perfectly honest, and TMI, I used this at a time of the month when my face was in it's worst state. I figured, shock the skin, LOL, and clean it up.
Yeahhhhh..so...I definitely didn't see, until right now, that you're only supposed to use a teaspoon of product. That could be my problem right there...
I applied it with my trusty elf mask tool, which I still declare that every mask lover should own.
It's a face spatula!
AAAAAND here is my face. In pain. No, not from looking in the mirror! From this mask! The lemon peel is not playing around! My face stung!! I did not make it the full ten minutes. Not even close.
So, my jar is empty now. There's no way I am repurchasing this. My skin was so tender after! It did look amazing, I must say, but ouch. Not my thing. Sorry, Ole, I'll stick to your other masks, like my pore mask, which I do love.
Have you tried the Lemon Strip Flash Peel? Where do you think I went wrong?
