  1. OIL CLEANSER
    Use your go to make-up remover/oil cleanser. This removes makeup and dirt - even the most stubborn waterproof products!

    Mask Time Favourite: Banila Co. Clean it Zero



  2. FACIAL CLEANSER
    Makeup and dirt are never properly removed after one cleanser! Residue can sit inside your pores, clogging them and can lead to more skin problems. Facial cleansers help clean out the remaining dirt.

  3. EXFOLIATOR
    Exfoliating helps detox, remove flaky skin and shrink visible pores. We recommend 2-3 times a week using a gentle facial scrub with extra gentle application!

    Mask Time Tip:
    Never use peel off pore masks as that can cause damage to your skin and enlarge pores more, allowing more dirt to travel into! Remember pores are natural and provide healthy oils to our skin.
