Unfortunately, I have been cursed with adult acne. Thankfully, I don't break out all over my face, just mainly on my cheeks. I've tried almost everything I can think of to tame my unruly flareups, with minimal success. That's why, when Ole Henriksen contacted me about reviewing their Blemish Attack Purifying Mask for Oily/Blemish Prone Skin, I jumped at the chance.
This reparative anti-inflammatory mask promotes clear and healthy skin with salicylic acid, copper and zinc. The paraben-free formula combines purifying clays and calming botanicals to help absorb impurities, minimizes breakouts and reduce excess surface oil.
I couldn't wait to try out this mask for it contained so many ingredients designed to beautify your skin in different ways. For instance, the Blemish Attack Purifying Mask contains:
- Salicylic acid ~ Removes dry and flaky skin
- Aloe vera ~ Moisturizes, calms and heals
- Copper and zinc ~ Calms and soothes with antioxidants
- Eucalyptus extract ~ Oxygenates and prevents infection
- African red tea and green tea ~ Strengthens the skin’s outer layer, slows the aging process, calms and soothes the skin
I would definitely be able to benefit from all of the above. I applied the mask as I would any facial mask (clean skin and avoid the eye area) and left it to dry for a half hour. Next, I washed it off with warm water and then followed up with a toner and my regular facial moisturizer.
After removing the mask, I immediately noticed how much smoother and less oily my skin seemed to be. I also noticed a definite reduction in the number of blackheads too. The Blemish Attack Purifying Mask rid my face of some acne-causing agents, which I'm sure were perpetuating the cycle of my breakouts. I am hopeful that with continued use (twice per week), I can finally see a drastic reduction in my adult acne.
If you are like me, an unfortunate victim of frequent breakouts, then I would highly recommend the Blemish Attack Purifying Mask from Ole Henriksen. Your skin will thank you for it!
