Hot in the City with Merlot Skin Care!

reviewdisclaimer

It looks like face masks are once again having their day in the sun! I’m always on the lookout for the latest trend or must-have product, I was totally on the bandwagon when BB Creams hit the market, and now I’m really excited about face masks! More specifically clay or mud based masks. Clay and/or mud is known for drawing out excess dirt and oils – which is why they’re so popular at spa’s and have now made them a facial mask must. I’ve been trying out various brands, and while my oily skin is quite pleased with the results I have to say that well known brands (like Glam Glow) can get pretty pricey. However, I’ve recently found a perfect and more affordable alternative with Merlot’s Clay Facial Mask and Purifying Peel Off Mask!

HotintheCityMerlotSkinCare

Merlot was kind enough to send me both masks for review, as well as their First Crush 3-in-1 Blemish Treatment. I decided to get the girls together for a girls night in, complete with snacks, a cheesy movie, and facials! This is what we thought of the masks:

Merlot Clay Mask
While Merlot’s Clay Mask is neither thick nor heavy and has a pleasant scent, it left my skin clean, oil-free, but not dried out. I really love it, I like how I didn’t have to time how long I kept it on my skin for fear of irritation – instead a couple of us kept them on for a while, and none of us experienced over-drying or irritation!

Merlot Purifying Mask
The Purifying Peel Off Mask was a favorite – it smelled really good and left everybody’s skin feeling super soft! Plus it didn’t irritate typical dry sensitive areas like around the nose and eyebrows.

First Crush Skin Care

We didn’t use the First Crush 3-in-1 Blemish Treatment at our girls night in because I’ve actually been testing it myself for two weeks. I wanted to use most of the bottle before I gave my opinion, and wanted to be able to evaluate the product independent of any other acne treatments. I recently went on vacation and while I was away from home my face completely broke out, when I got back home I immediately began using this as a part of my evening regimen. Since then my acne has really cleared up, and my skin is actually looking more even! So I’m definitely sold on this product – it doesn’t strip your skin and leave it feeling dry, but it’s like a gentle cleanse that leaves your skin feeling more fresh and firm.
