My second MyPure review of the month is on the A’kin Instant Radiance Face Mask.
The first time I tried the mask I’ve got to admit, did have a bit of a panic. I followed the instructions and kept the mask on for 10 minutes before rinsing it off and applying some moisturiser. My skin seemed to be slightly red but I didn’t think anything of it as that’s happened before when I’ve used face masks. About half an hour later, as I was about to go to bed, I looked in the mirror and saw that my face had got much redder and you could clearly see where the mask had been on my face. I was a bit worried but it wasn’t hurting or itching which I took to be a good sign, and just hoped that it would go away and wasn’t an allergic reaction. Thankfully when I woke up the next morning, my skin wasn’t in the least bit red and it felt much softer, smoother and cleaner.
The next time I tried the mask the exact same thing happened. The box says the mask might cause ‘a light tingling sensation on the skin. If symptoms persist or if this becomes uncomfortable remove with warm water and discontinue use.’ As I’ve not experienced any tingling, I’m guessing that the redness doesn’t really matter. If anything, it may prove that the mask is actually doing something. Anyway, I love this face mask as it makes my skin feel amazing so will keep on using it once a week. At £16.99 it is quite expensive (at least for a student) but it’s still cheaper than lots of other similar products and A’kin is a fantastic brand so you should definitely try it out at least once!
