I know it's written in german on them, but that's because I got them from a cosmetics store called DM (drogerie markt), which is originally a german store. They have translations on the back, fortunately, so that I can know what I'm supposed to do with them. DM has all kinds of products, from Maybelline to L'oreal and so on. And recently I've been wanting to try more of the products from the Balea range. It is very affordable and I figured I might as well give them a go, since I've heard people rave about them.
Balea Face Masks
So I got these four masks: Q10 anti-aging mask (I know I'm still young, but I just wanted to try it out and help in preventing), the grey one with dead-sea minerals, the one with zinc and clay, and one with milk and honey. They are separated into two parts each, so you can use twice each mask and I think they were about 1-2 dollars, which is an extreme bargain!!
The mask with clay & zinc, and the one with dead-sea minerals are just a tad going to dry your skin, mainly because they are supposed to thoroughly cleanse your skin and eliminate the oils in your face that cause acne. So if you have troubles in that area, you might wanna try giving these a go. If you have oily skin these are gonna work wonders for you, and if you have dry skin like I do, I would suggest applying a very nourishing, moisturizing face cream afterwards, just so that it doesn't completely dry up your face.
As for the mask with milk & honey, and the one with Q10 (anti-aging), these are much more moisturizing. Especially the honey one!! It also says on the package that you should not cleanse with water the milk mask, just with a dry cotton pad - and I like doing this at night: putting on my mask, waiting for 15 minutes, cleaning it with a cotton pad, and leaving the remains til morning. I can almost guarantee that your dry spots will be in a much better state than before. I love, love, love this mask especially and I'm definitely going back for more!
Balea Peeling Gel
I absolutely love this one as well! It has a nice scent, not too powerful and leaves your skin really smooth. You probably already know that the peeling gel is used to eliminate all the dead skin on your face, leaving it nice and soft. I find that this is a MUST in my routine, because if I don't do this every other 3-4 days, whenever I apply foundation or BB cream or whatever to my face, all those dry skin spots will become more obvious - if you have dry skin, you know what I mean.
The way I like to use these is: I first remove all of my makeup, then I thoroughly cleanse my face with the peeling gel, then I apply one of the face masks and, if needed, I would extra-moisturize my face. And in the morning I wake up with such a nice skin... I absolutely love this routine! Of course, you can do this with other products as well, depending on your preferences! SO, if you feel like you need a pampering session this weekend, grab your fave mask and relax!
Alrighty, hope you enjoyed my little ramble about skin care! I was wondering if maybe you'd like me to do a full on routine of my face at night - with what I like to do to keep my face clean, spot-free, moisturized, and neat looking. I hope you'll have a great weekend, I know I will!
