What’s better than a facial masque? Two facial masques! We all know that masking delivers a shot of nutrition as well as tons of benefits, but did you know that you can double the fun? With the application of one masque after another - or even one on top of the other - you can indulge your skin with a second helping of the good stuff.
The trick to successful double-masking is to pair up masques that work well together. To try the layering technique, smooth on a protective product like the Rosehip & Maize Exfoliating Masque then apply a powerful one like the Lime Stimulating Masque on top. Another stellar combination is a spicy treatment like the Eight Greens Phyto Masque - Hot which leaves your face glowing and tingly, followed by the soothing sensation of a Calm Skin Arnica Masque.
