Beaute From The Earth Volcanic Ash Masque Is Getting Some Raves From Me

I am very particular when it comes to skincare so I don't easily praise products. However, when I do, I promise you it is something worth trying out. I have always been a mask junkie, and I dedicated a giant drawer in my closet to various kinds of facial masks. I simply think that every girl should have the right to treat herself to some nice, and doing facials certainly make me happy.

I have been getting a few product review requests from various companies, but my busy schedule really didn't allow me to fully test these products out. Fortunately, with the holiday break kicking in, I want to bring to you one of my favorites lately, the Beaute From The Earth Volcanic Ash Masque ($12.97 ~ $49.98) from the cosmetic brand BEAUTESTARR created by makeup artist Debbie Starr.

More about the product : The volcanic ash is so fine that upon application, it penetrates the pores of your skin. The ash acts as a bacteria "cage" . This "cage" traps the bacteria. When the ash is exfoliated from your skin, the "cage" containing the bacteria is also removed. Therefore, the area that has been treated with Beaute From The Earth  (BFTE)masque is literally bacteria-free.

The unscented mask can be used all over the face and even on lips and under eye areas. It created an instant tightening effect on the lips and did not irritate my eyes. The cooling and refreshing sensation is also a big plus. But, the true test came when I washed the mask off. All I can say is that my skin looked beautiful and radiant. I noticed that my pores shrank a bit and my face looked hydrated and smooth. According to the product instruction, temporary redness may occur due to increased circulation, which did happen to me. But, it went away within 10 minutes.

I am impressed by this product. I don't really have any wrinkles yet so I can not comment on its effectiveness to fine lines. But, I can say that my skin just looks glowing after using it. My face doesn't just look nice; it looks healthy. The amount of product that was sent to me only allowed me for a one time use, so I can not guarantee that the result is long lasting. But for now, I am loving it.
