When it comes to facial masks, I’m always running into masks that are too literal. Literal as in, really heavy and tight feeling. Instead of a soothing experience, you spend 9 minutes of your time just wondering when you get to wash it off — that kind of mask. Fortunately, my recent go at Cures by Avance Anti-Acne Mask was an experience unlike I’ve ever had.
The Cures by Avance Anti-Acne Mask is described as, “A cooling, refreshing mask formulated with Camphor Extracts to purify skin. Temporarily relieves sinus pressure and puffiness around eyes.” The product image above is basically true to what it looks like in real life, or you can reference another Cures by Avance product I’ve reviewed previously.
The mask is a cool white cream that smells faintly of camphor (it’s one of the main ingredients). To use, apply it lightly and leave it on for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, rinse off with warm water — nothing out of the ordinary here. Now here’s the kicker: The mask does not feel like a mask. There is no uneasy feeling of discomfort and stiffness when this mask is on!
When the mask comes off, your skin definitely feels fresh and clean — no puffiness anywhere. Another interesting thing is that it reduces post-cleansing redness. While I haven’t yet successfully eradicated acne from my skin, I can say that after a few weeks of use, the Cures by Avance Anti-Acne Mask has done much to control oil and keep breakouts minimal.
Overall, a great product for anyone suffering from acne!
