Product: Pure Aura 24K Gold Peel Off Mask
Where to Buy: Macy’s
Start by cleansing your skin with your favorite cleanser. Shake the bottle well to mix the product thoroughly, and then apply a semi-thick layer to your skin. Make sure to cover enough to grab when peeling off, although I found it fairly easy to peel even on the thinner portions. Wait for 15-20 minutes or until thoroughly dry, grab from the bottom and peel off gently. Rinse your face after use to get rid of remnants.
Peace Out Acne Healing Dots Review:
I really want to love this product. It has a fantastic ingredients list, and it looks so pretty when applied! My photos don’t do it justice. The glimmer and glow are real. I used an applicator to apply the mask because I don’t like sticky residue. My skin was fresh and clean, and my first impression on seeing the product was “Holy crap, this is pretty!”
The bad news about my first impression? The strong fragrance was a bit of a turn-off. It has that dollar store peel-off mask scent that tends to burn the nostrils a bit. I’m usually hard to offend when it comes to scents, but this one was particularly obtrusive.
I left the mask on for roughly 15 minutes, during which I took copious selfies and posted on Instagram. That was enough time for it to dry. I started peeling from the bottom as the directions suggest. If you’ve done peel-off masks before, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the ease of peeling. The mask doesn’t leave a lot of small bits for cleanup. Everything kind of comes off in a sheet slowly, so I absolutely loved that part!
My face looked nice and smooth for about a minute, and then I started to get hot. Like, very hot. My face was burning! I looked in the mirror and sure enough, my face was beet red. Unfortunately, it seems like that peel-off action and possibly the fragrance really irritated my skin. To give you some background, my skin tends to be normal/combo and may err on the sensitive side at times. I did get an allergy panel a few years ago and my body is pretty damn resilient because I’m only mildly allergic to one preservative.
I applied some hydrating lotion I got in Japan, slathered on some gentle moisturizer, and waited for the redness to subside. Luckily, 10 minutes later my skin was back to normal. Maybe it was the irritation from the peel? It was pretty strong, so my skin might not be into it. If you have dry or oily skin, it might be a better candidate for this mask.
Next day, my skin looked smooth and bright without any irritation.
