I was online shopping the other day and the Clinique Mask Mini set caught my eye. I have been really into masking lately and I’ve owned a couple masks from Clinique before so I saw this little mini set as a way to see what I might pick up next! I already own the Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask in the full size, and I absolutely love it for hydration. The Even Better Brightening Moisture Mask and Pore Refining Solutions Charcoal Mask are both new to the Clinique line, so I was eager to try these.
This four pack retails at $9.50 and is only available online. It looks like you’re paying for foil packets that could be a free sample, but there is a surprising amount of product in each of the pods. I could easily get three uses out of each pod. So they don’t dry out, I have been taping them back shut with Scotch tape between uses. So far, so good!
I went camping last weekend with friends and the next day my skin felt kind of nasty from being outside in the damp humid air, getting eaten alive by mosquitos, and sweating a ton. The second I got home I had to wash my clothes and my hair right away to get the campfire smell off of myself, and took the most luxurious shower ever! It was the perfect time to use the Charcoal Mask. It’s supposed to absorb oil, impurities, and environmental pollutants to detox the skin. Charcoal powder draws out the debris from the pores and mineral clay soaks up excess oil.
I applied a thin layer to my face and waited about 10 minutes before washing it off with warm water. I could feel it tightening on my face, but not in a way that made me feel overly dry or itchy. I am someone who normally has dry skin with the occasional breakout, and pore tightening and acne masks are usually way too drying for my liking. I was pleasantly surprised that it left my skin evenly balanced and soft, drying up a couple problem spots and leaving my skin feeling renewed and amazing.
I’m definitely thinking about picking up a full size of the charcoal mask! The other new mask in this set is the Even Better. It’s supposed to be a luxurious cream mask that hydrates and creates a luminous complexion. I can’t wait to try that one next. I have a feeling they will both be popular.
I’m loving that these are available as minis! Have you seen these online? I want all the new beauty things to be available like this so I can try before I buy a big one!
