Feel the Pulsation!

It's been a while, my friends!  I have a tip for you - men and women alike.

For the most part, I feel like facial masks are pretty shi-shi foo-foo and don't really do alot.  They all claim to "draw impurities from the skin", but how much do they really do?  I can never really tell any difference after taking them off - just that my skin might feel a little softer, or have a chalky residue left behind.

However - This mask is no joke.  I found this product at my local hippie dippie all organic/sustainable/free range/cageless/local grown/you-name-it grocery store and picked it up on the recommendation of a friend. You blend this bentonite clay powder with raw unfiltered apple cider together to create a fizzy, frothy mixture, then smooth that onto your face.  Let it dry, and before long your face is pulling, pulsating, tightening, being slightly contorted (lol) - all sorts of weird things.  This is not for those non-adventurous folks - you may get a little freaked out by it when you first try this.  However, after washing it off I do see a difference in my skin.  My skin is always bright red after I wash it off, but not in a painful way...more in a "whoa, my face is rejuvenated and the circulation is definitely going" kind of way.  Additionally, the seemingly permanent little bumps on my forehead - AKA the bane of my existence - have been clearing up since I started this.  

Too good to be true?  We'll have to see...but I'm sticking with this for now!  It definitely brings a "glow", that's for sure!  My routine: I wash my face with my go-to Johnson's Baby Wash, apply this mask, follow it with my velvety La Mer Concentrate which calms my face while leaving it "fed" and soft - and lastly, I apply my moisturizer of 12 + years, Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizer.  My face is happy and well-fed from this combination! :-) 

Try it out!
