Beat the Maskne Blues with Image Skincare

(Features press samples & affiliate links - see disclaimer)

Wearing a face mask has become second nature to us all but with that comes a new skincare concern I'm sure none of us saw coming, Maskne. Maskne is a term used when acne breakouts happen because of wearing a mask and can occur as quickly as one day of wearing one or weeks after. There's a number of reasons this can happen from the friction of the mask against the skin to the area being much warmer than usual leading to irritation, clogged pores and breakouts. 

Leading cosmeceutical skincare brand Image has a solution that will be music to your ears - the NEW Maskne Kit has been created to help you combat maskne and includes three products to maintain a clear complexion. 

The Image Skincare Maskne Kit (£110.00) contains three products that have been put together by the brand's aestheticians and includes their must-haves to purify the skin, purge impurities and keep skin clear. 

Inside you'll find: 
The MAX™ Stem Cell Facial Cleanser, a silky cleanser with advanced peptides and plant extracts for youthful-looking skin. 
The I Mask Purifying Probiotic Mask, a super-green mask that helps to purify and detoxify the skin while balancing its natural flora.
The Clear Cell Restoring Serum, a soothing serum that hydrates and soothes blemish-prone skin while absorbing surface oils for a mattifying effect

The Max Stem Cell Facial Cleanser is a fabulous product that helps to gently sweep away makeup and impurities. I find the creamy formula is soft and hydrating on the skin and just a small amount is needed to really work it in before removing it with a warm flannel. The product is created using an advanced polypeptide complex and plant-derived stem cell technology to turn cleansing into a luxurious experience. It's free of sulphates, parabens and acids to balance and optimise the skin's pH. It's a really lovely cleanser and as a balm kinda person usually, this surprised me!

The I Mask Purifying Probiotic Mask is the product I like the most from the kit - the super green mask is a blend of yoghurt-based probiotics and nourishing superfruits to help balance the skin aiding against dehydration. The mask contains essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to nourish the skin and fight the look of dullness and signs of damage. Purifying green clay and charcoal help to detoxify and clear away impurities, leaving the skin clean, smooth, refined and oh so soft!

The final product within the kit is the Clear Cell Restoring Serum which is a DREAM to use! The oil-free lightweight moisturising serum soothes and absorbs surface oils for a mattifying effect while the Vitamin B6 derivative helps to restore skin's overall healthy balance by visually minimising pore size, shine and sebum production while botanicals reduce the appearance of irritation and inflammation. While I haven't noticed my pores minimised, I have noticed an overall hydration which I need as we come out of winter. 

The three products create what can only be described as the go-to kit for maskne problems - skin is left cleaner, clearer and more hydrated meaning breakouts are fewer and further between and irritable skin is soothed. 

I'm a long term lover of Image Skincare and they just get better and better!

  3. OMG the maskne is so real for me. It's rare that I go out so I don't have to wear a mask a lot but wow my chin hates me. I think it's a mix of stress to and my skin could defo do with a de-stress. I absolutely love Image as a brand, their cleansers are soo good on my skin when it's a mix of oily and dry!
    Lovely post, great to see their mask in action!
