Ah yes, we have reached Friday afternoon. Doesn’t it feel wonderful? It has been a long week for me. I spent a large amount of it fighting off allergens which always leaves me exhausted. while none of the sinus meds make me tired when taking them once they are out of my system I just sort of feel like crashing.
So it is the perfect time to kick back a little and take a breather with a face mask. And today I am using one of my favorites. This particular tube came to me from the brand, however I have purchased and used so many of this mask since it first came out that I know exactly how it performs. This is the Yensa Pumpkin Turmeric 2-in-1 Radiance polishing mask + 8 Super Orange Essence.
We all know that exfoliators are something I simply enjoy. There is something just fantastic about a physical exfoliator. It is like scratching an itch or reaching the end of a really good book. There is just something I find satisfying about it. However you do need to be careful. First of all not all exfoliators are alike. Some are gentle and others, not so much. In addition, even if you find a good one, it is easy to over do it. Sometimes a little bit of a good thing goes a long way.
I try not to use physical exfoliators more than once a week. Sometimes it goes to once a month, depending on my skin at the moment. That is the only reason I do not use this mask throughout the week and will have to keep it for a once a week use. The Yensa Pumpkin Turmeric mask is a gentle exfoliating mask. Its particles are fine grained and I have never had a problem with this mask causing skin issues.
I have on occasion wanted to try eating this mask.
which you shouldn’t do.
Seriously, don’t eat the mask.
Just enjoy the delicious scent of it. It smells of warming spices and orange. It is actually what my house starts to smell like as we shift from Thanksgiving to Christmas. It is the scent of holiday baking lightened up with the burst of orange citrus.

As with all skin care products you do need to use it repeatedly to see the full results. Today I applied the mask, let it sit for ten minutes so my skin could absorb the goodness and I could enjoy the scent. It was yummy smelling.
After ten minutes of sitting, I returned to the bathroom, and wet my hands a little but before starting to massage the mask on my skin. I rubbed in light circular motions all over my face so that I could get the benefit of the exfoliation. I highly recommend wetting down your hands first as it just keeps the mask from simply sticking to your hands.
As you massage, the mask turns whitish and then you rinse it off. My skin was left clean and freshly exfoliated. My hands actually feel a little softer too, and I can’t complain about that.
Over all I really enjoyed using this mask today. I have used it in the past and I will no doubt use it again in the future. The only issue I have is in remembering to moderate my use of it. The scent of the mask and the delightfully gentle exfoliation make me want to reach for it more often than I really need to exfoliate. I am very glad to have this mask around for when I do need a bit of exfoliation. And as I put this Pumpkin Turmeric mask from Yensa away for use late, I am already looking forward to taking it out again.
