This is my second product I've tried by Ole Henriken & again, I'm blown away by the difference it makes to my skin. I just gave the Blue/Black Berry Enzyme Mask a whirl & I already feel & see a difference after one application! This reparative gel mask hydrates even the most parched skin types. The mask will renew your skin with an incredible blend of black berries, blue berries, & papaya enzymes. This trio will bring oxygen into your cells- making your skin feel like it took a big, fresh, spring-clean breath of air while also smoothing, refining the texture of your skin, & removing dead skin cells. Because of these enzymes, your skin may experience a slight cooling/tingling feeling, but not to worry-- this mask is great for all skin types, even those with the most sensitive of skin. This brings me to the calming benefits of the lavender extract. Besides the aromatic benefits of lavender, lavender also aids in inflammation. After skimming the reviews of this product I kept seeing a lot of people saying it really helped with acne issues. Being someone who has suffered from acne in my past, I've tried everything for acne, and never heard of lavender treating acne. So, I did a little research for you guys and found that
"lavender oil provides great topical benefits to the skin due to its antifungal and antiseptic properties. For this reason, some natural health advocates also believe that a lavender oil acne remedy can fight acne bacteria on the skin to reduce surface inflammation caused by chronic acne outbreaks." - (for even more uses for lavender oil click here) You learn something new every day...
This mask is truly for everyone and you can use it 2-3 times a week. Another thing I adore about this mask is that it is safe to use under the eye area! You can't do that with most products, but let me tell you, my eyes feel incredible & completely de-puffed & hydrated (thank you hyaluronic acid for binding moisture to my skin). Also, let's take the time to thank my new crush, Ole, for formulating this product without the use of GMOs, Parabens, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, Sulfates, Synthetic Dyes or Fragrances, & Triclosan. We love you, Ole, for giving us healthy skincare products that bring out our natural beauty!
If you're feeling a little hungover & your skin is totally suffering from a long weekend of partying, this is the perfect mask to thank your skin for putting up with long nights of drinking. Or if you have a big event coming up & want a wonderful glowing complexion this mask is for you. If you just want to kick back & relax with the calming aromatics of lavender then I would highly recommend Ole Henriksen's Blue/Black Berry Enzyme Mask.
