Last week, we already discussed the enabling ways of our Instagram feeds (hello, Frank!). Of course, I made another purchase and decided to give the 5 DAY BEAUTITOX BY MS. SOHO a try. Have you heard about it?
It´s a five day treatment that´s supposed to detoxify and nourish your skin by cleansing it through five sheet masks of different components and scents, one day at a time. I am always up for a good detox and a challenge that comes with it, so I couldn´t wait to finally receive the envelope and get started.
I took one for the team here and decided to take you along for the ride and wrote down my thoughts every day, diary-style. Cool?
DAY 1 • ALOE VERA
Calms and soothes skin, fades any redness and blemishes, and begins to activate and regenerate cells. Let´s do this, I think to myself as I am unwrapping the first delicate sheet mask. I expect it to smell of something but it doesn’t really, which I don´t mind. The mask feels soft, like thin cotton and very nice on the skin. I am working on some emails as the mask gets to work its magic and those 30 minutes just fly by. My skin does feel plumped up and moisturized though I am still sporting some redness. But well, it´s only the first day… so far, so good.
DAY 2 • GRAPE
Powerfully nourishes skin to reduce fine lines, restore firmness and promote anti-ageing. Young white wine, is what I instantly think of while putting this one on my face. It has a slightly tangy smell and makes sense, given the fact it´s a grape mask. The smell fades and the thin sheet feels exactly as nice as the aloe vera one. Afterwards the skin looks more glowy and deeply moisturized. Dang, I like that!
DAY 3 • BLACKBERRY
Extracts grime and dirt from the skin to thoroughly detox your pores, whilst balancing oils. Finally! I have been waiting to get to use this gem since starting the BEAUTITOX. I don´t know what it is but anything pore-cleaning and refining – think charcoal – is totally up my alley. I am happy to report my expectations were totally met. The tart smell – that had me check it´s silver slip twice, since it reminded me so much of fig and I thought I grabbed the wrong one – turned out to be blackberry and smells amazing. I actually leave it on longer than the suggested 30 minutes. It comes off almost dry and my pores look spring-cleaned and much tighter than before. Also the red splotches disappeared. I am hooked.
DAY 4 • FIG
Softens the harshness of skin in order to help brighten and shine in complexion. I love fig candles and scents that contain a natural whiff of figs, so I expected a lot from this one. Oddly enough, it didn´t come close to the blackberry mask from yesterday. Since starting the Beautitox, my skin feels moisturized and all in all more balanced, but with this one, I don´t see a great difference afterwards. Still, I start to enjoy my nightly ritual of sheet masks and feel a bit sad that there´s only one day left.
DAY 5 • GREEN OLIVE
Replenishes moisture into the skin to hydrate and refresh, whilst supplying and reserving collagen. My fifth and last day of the Beautitox would have been Saturday but since I was out and about and fell asleep on the couch later in the day, I just skipped it and made up for it yesterday. I actually enjoyed that one a lot. The fresh smell reminded me of cucumber and was able to work it´s magic for over an hour. Dreamy.
Needless to say, I totally enjoyed the BEAUTITOX BY MS. SOHO and would do it again. Those 30 minutes (and more) of me-time every night were perfect to relax and care for my out-of-balance skin. And now, excuse me while I am browsing Instagram for my next beauty find…
