Don’t Hate, Exfoliate!

Wednesday. Middle of the week. Hump Day. Whatever you call it, I use this day to give my face some extra TLC. Aside from using my Clarisonic Mia every 2 days (one of my favorite facial products ever), I wanted to look for something that I could use at least once a week. While randomly browsing at Lush one weekend, one of the employees asked if I was looking for anything in particular. After explaining my plan to her, she recommended the Mask of Magnaminty. It immediately reminded me of the Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque that I had used while in college. The mask has a nice minty scent, plus it contains honey and aduki (AKA azuki/adzuki) beans to help soothe and exfoliate the skin. This is great for acne prone or combination skin, which I have. I apply this to my face and leave it on for about 10 minutes, then hop into the shower and remove it before continuing with my normal cleaning routine. It’s been close to a month since I purchased this, and my skin feels smooth and refreshed every time I’ve used it.

How the mask looks like in the container. Those specks are the aduki beans.

      I was pretty surprised myself when I found that out, but they work well and aren’t abrasive.
