Great things come in pink pots! This little pot of sweet smelling skin stuff smells good enough to eat- I was actually quite tempted but resisted and instead slapped it on my dreaded blackheads instead.

This mask is a great solution for those who suffer from enlarged pores and god forbidden blackheads- I don’t know many people who don’t suffer from one or the other, or both most commonly! I mean, I’m not someone who suffers from overly enlarged pores but I do most definitely suffer from blackheads on my nose and chin area and it drives me CRAZY!

This mask launch has come at a good time as I’m focusing on my wedding skin prep- no-one wants gross blackheads or visible pores on their wedding day!

Simply apply to areas on enlarged pore areas on your face and leave for 10 min and then add some warm water and gently massage to exfoliate the area- rinse off and pat dry – simple! Murad recommends doing this 2-3 times per week – I’ve applied this twice now and my skin has responded well to it and my blackhead prone areas do look slightly clearer- woo!

The mask works because the polylactic acid polishing beads lift and exfoliate dead skin cells, the volcanic clay acts almost like a magnet to help extract skin impurities and grime from deep within pores and the gorge pomegranate extracts help promote glowing skin for visibly refined pores, and cleaner, smoother skin.

As my pores aren’t overly large I can’t see a huge difference but its made a slight difference to their appearance and definitely to my blackheads so I’d buy it just for that alone! I can imagine if you have very large pores this would be a vital step in your skincare regime to introduce. I’m a huge fan of masks in general and feel that this is a great skin boosting mask anyway as my skin felt tight and glowy after using it. Also I know I said this in the beginning of this post but it literally smells unreal!!!
