The Sunday Post: Triple Threat Facial

Sunday's mean only one thing at LR HQ, pampering. I like to spend my Sunday getting lot's of blog posts drafted whilst sporting a face mask and munching on an assortment of berry fruits. Every now and then my skin feels more congested than usual and that's when I know it's time to call out the big guns and the triple threat facial steps in...

Recently I've been favouring the following trio to banish pesky blemishes whilst also injecting a much needed dose of moisture back into my skin. I start off with REN Invisible Pores Detox Mask, whilst soaking in the tub. I usually put this on just after I've conditioned my hair and leave both to do their magic for ten minutes or so. I love this mask because it highlights all my open pores and minimises them.  Next up is a personal favourite for those times when you're suffering from a breakout and need some damage control. I tend to whack out my Origins Out of Trouble Mask at least once a month and it really gives my skin a good clear out of skin nasties and impurities. I also love the cold tingling sensation this mask gives as the mask really works its way in there and gives a much needed detox.

The final step in the TTF routine goes to adding moisture back to the skin. I have various masks that do this job well but my weapon of choice at the moment has to be Jurlique Moisturising Cream Mask*. After the first two steps of where my skin has been cleansed, purged, and tightened I like to give my skin a bit of a break to calm down before following up with the next stage. So, pop the kettle on and catch a few episodes of Friends on Comedy Central. When ready, I massage the Jurlique mask softly into my skin in small circular motions, really let my skin lap up the product. I love this part as I find it really soothing, to really get the feel of an at home facial I sometimes call in the boy to massage my skin whilst I shut my eyes and dream I'm lazing on some Caribbean Island...

The next day I wake up to fresh and hydrated skin, ready to start the working week. Do you have a pamper routine you like to pull out at the weekends?

  1. This sounds like the perfect sunday pampering session! I have to be careful with what I put on my face as it's soooooo sensitive. I'm tempted to try out the REN mask as i've heard good things about them


  2. Ooh I have a mini sample of the detox mask and I love it, you've remided me to go and grab the full size! I also have a pamper routine, but mine are mostly from Origins, got to love Origins products aha!

  3. I hear a lot about Jurlique - very interested in trying out this brand !
    Can't wait for my Sunday pampering session tonight :p


  4. I usually have really oily skin and suffer from pesky break outs so I have face masks in that area all sussed out but recently my skins been super dry and I realised I don't have anything for super quick hydration. Think I may have to try this Jurlique offering x

  5. I have sensitive skin too and haven't had a reaction to any of these products so let me know how you get on :) x

  6. Origins are my failsafe skincare brand too! x

  7. Fingers crossed it works for you :) x

  8. These sound like some amazing products, I need to give them a go! x
