If you didn’t have a chance to look at my 17 Real Tips for Iceland, please feel free to enjoy, because if you plan on going to Iceland at all in your lifetime, this is something you should definitely read and bookmark!
But because my lazy dumbass didn’t book reservations for The Blue Lagoon, I had to settle for the next best thing. Which was buying the mask set. Definitely NOT the better than actually going and enjoying a day at the spa, but it’s something better than nothing!
So first let me get this regimen out of the way:
Lava 2-3 minutes
Algae 5-10 minutes
3-5 Days later
Silica 5-10 minutes
Algea 5-10 minutes
These masks are a pretty penny to start off with $120 for the trio and it comes with a mesh bag. They are rather healthy sized, about the size of your whole hand. So you’re not feeling like they’re skimping out on the goods, but as a beauty fan these are well worth the purchase.
I tried these for a couple weeks and I noticed my skin feeling better and smoother. Now I’m not the *best* example when it comes to skincare, I could probably sell skincare in my sleep because I have such awesome skin (thanks mom). I hardly ever had pimples, and I can’t recall if I’ve ever had a break out. With that in mind, if you do have sensitive skin or are more prone to breakouts, then consult your dermatologist before using. But since I do have normal oily ness and am blessed with non-sensitive skin, using this for a couple weeks I did feel this tightness and bounciness immediately. It was quite refreshing to my skin and when I would rub my cheek on my husbands he would say it’s noticeably smoother.
What Was the Technique I Used?
I followed the regimen above by the book. I did the masks at night before my shower and rinsed off in the shower. I did my normal nightly routine and went to bed. Then prepped my face as normal for the day.
This seemed the easiest, and I didn’t mix it with any other face masks or treatments during this time. After the two weeks I pretty much had enough for another 2 weeks worth of masks. I decided to save it for another day when I have to look on pointe. But all in all the hype associated with these are 110% accurate. I wish they weren’t so expensive because I would buy more to use on a daily basis. But maybe next time when I’m in Iceland I’ll splurge on another treat and get it again.
Have you tried this product? What do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
