Hello Beauties,

If you have oily skin like me, you know the importance of a weekly face mask. Here are some of my favourite face masks that are most suitable for oily skin types to keep the oils at bay and prevent breakouts.

Queen Helene- Mint Julep Masque

This is a great drugstore face mask, that absorbs excess oil without completely stripping the skin. This retails for approximately $6 and is available from iHerb. It can be a little drying so I recommend applying before you head into the shower and once in the shower wash off with hands and a damp muslin cloth.

Swisse Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask

This is quite a unique mud mask, its actually quite thin in texture and not as drying as other mud masks. To wash off its best to start off by adding a bit of water and massaging the mask in, then to finish off use a warm muslin cloth. Afterwards my skin felt really clean, a little red and when I apply my remaining skincare products my face drinks it up. I’ve also applied Alpha H Liquid Gold after using this mask and my skin had a bit of a tingle, so I could tell this mask really cleared out the skin.

Hello beauties,

Since starting my blog, my skin was playing up a bit. In recent months it’s finally calmed down and I wanted so share with you some of my learnings.

My skin is combination- oily, but slightly dehydrated. In the past couple of months I haven’t had any blemishes (I’m so surprised) but if I do, it’s around my nose or chin (hormonal zones..)

This was my skin a couple of months ago, a bit problematic...
