I confess to having an issue executing my evening skin care routine at the beginning of the year. A couple late nights and some changes going on in my life, I was guilty of snoozing with my makeup. And boy am I paying for it. While they aren’t large and obvious breakouts, they are pigmented congestion that can happen with my dry and sensitive skin. So I was in a perplexing situation – how do you deal with remedying clogged pores without striping skin of precious moisture?
Just as if they read my mind, First Aid Beauty sent over their new collection, Skin Rescue. While I love their classics like their Ultra Repair Cream, I knew I needed a different formulation so solve my problem. This product trio has literally turned my skin around in 10 days. Thanks partly to a more rigorous skin care situation might I add. But I really credit the Red Clay and Salicylic Acid for clearing my skin, all while still keeping my skin hydrated and supple.
Any gel cleanser junkies out there? If so, you’ll love Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser With Red Clay. This gel slightly foams to clean out pores and remove excess oils. The clay works to draw out toxins and control sebum production. First Aid Beauty’s proprietary antioxidant blend flights free radicals. While it is a deeper clean that I am used to, I like the gentle action. I plan on continue using for weekly deep cleanse as my skin calms down and clears. And I credit the addition of glycerin to keep my dry skin moisturized and nourished.
Okay – here is where I started getting aggressive. I hadn’t used blemish control pads or Salicylic Acid since my early twenties (that’s over ten years ago, folks). But I was desperate and Skin Rescue Blemish Patrol Pads didn’t disappoint. For you acne-prone readers, I can suggest these enough. There was no stinging or tightness. Willowbark helps soothe inflammation while witch hazel can improve texture of skin. Evermat tightens pores and adds a matte finish (not something I am usually after and I didn’t notice an overly matte effect).
Last but not least, the big guns: Skin Rescue Purifying Mask With Red Clay. And honestly, who doesn’t love a peel-off mask? Like the cleanser, red clay purifies skin. The action is just stronger with the 20 minute mask. I’ve been using as a spot treatment where I was really seeing congestive pimples. And also like the cleanser, glycerin keeps skin soft and supple. And there is nothing more satisfying then peeling off to reveal more even and refreshed skin.
All three products are free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates and artificial fragrance. Made in the USA.
