Clinique Pep-Start Double Bubble Purifying Mask (CAD $34) is a new mask from Clinique which aims to smooth complexion with the power of bubbles. This mask is a transformative cleansing gel mask which deeply cleanses, purifies and preps the skin, either for the makeup, night treatment or moisturizer. The unique formula of this mask transforms from a pink gel into a blanket of small white debris- lifting bubbles. The energizing bubbling sensation along with exfoliating ingredients work to lift away surface oil and dirt to reveal softer, smoother and makeup ready skin. It is suitable for all skin types. The packaging of this mask is in a green tube with a pump to dispense the product.
The main ingredients of this mask include:
Decyl Glucoside + Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate + Cocamidopropyl Betaine – These are the foaming agents that help wash away the surface dirt and impurities that can lead to clogged pores and a dull, lackluster complexion.
Glycerin – A moisturizing agent that helps to prevent drying and stripping skins.
N-Actyl D-Glucosamine – An amino sugar that increases moisture, decreases flakiness and helps to normalize exfoliation on the outer layer of skin.
It is suggested to shake the tube of this mask before using. I spread an even layer of this mask on my face and neck avoiding the eye area. The pink color of the gel starts to change and bubbles start to form which grow a little in size, making it a very bubbly layer over the face. After two minutes, I massage the mask with warm water while rinsing away. Then I pat dry and follow with my skin care products, followed by makeup if I use it in the morning. I have used it thrice per week and have used it for two weeks. It is a great pick me up for a Monday morning and it just takes 2 minutes and the skin looks refreshed. For other days, I use it in the evening followed by my night serum and moisturizer.
It is also great after a workout or yoga sweat session, and perfect for an evening out because it really helps prime skin for makeup application. I am really liking that my skin looks more clear and less clogged pores, thank you to this mask. I try to stay consistent with my skin care, it is not a one day or one week but it is part of my daily routine and this is what I suggest everyone. With care and consistency, anyone can improve and maintain the quality of the skin. This is a great mask and I would recommend this to anyone who needs a quick boost for the dullness and uneven texture or for that maintenance and improvement of the skin by deep cleansing and purifying the skin. This mask is exclusively available at Sephora.
