Have you tried a cleansing stick before?  Cleansing sticks have been around for a while and I do appreciate them for when I need to travel. They don’t take up a lot of space, but they can be messy in the tube. However, this cleansing stick from 23 Years Old is a charcoal stick that will help deep clean pores and exfoliate. It’s eco-friendly and gentle formula contains glycerin for hydration so your skin won’t dry out and it has charcoal powder to help pull the dirt from your pores and absorb excess oil.

I do not use it like a cleansing stick as it doesn’t really foam up that much and I only want to use this on my T-Zone area. I use this more like a pore pack mask ~ you know those pore strips you leave on your nose and then rip off? I am using this cleanser stick as a “pore strip” mask ~ I rub the stick over my T-Zone and let it sit on my skin for about 5 minutes, then add water and massage it for some exfoliation and then rinse off with warm water.

 

Using it this way really does show a good deep cleanse and my pores are very clean! You can use this as regular cleanser as well, but I found it to be very effective as 5 minute mask! My skin is not dry or stripped either ~ for the record, I do have very oily skin, so if you want to try this method, start out at 1 minute and see how it works. The only down side with this cleanser is that is smells like my lemony bathroom cleaner. I usually love citrus scented items, but this one comes pretty close to smelling like what I use for cleaning my toilets and stuff ~ lol. I did not do a pH test on this as it was so dark that I couldn't read the strips.

 

 

Crithmum Maritumum is derived from Sea Fennel and has retinol-like benefits ~ reducing fine lines & wrinkles, evening out skin tone, promoting cellular turnover. This mask will brighten your skintone and increase collagen & elastin, while leaving it hydrated. I was a bit shocked when I opened up the mask package and discovered it was a black mask! Nothing about this mask would have pointed to that, but I do love black sheet masks, as they also provide a detoxing component to my masking experience. .

 

The fit is okay ~ for those of us with bigger faces, this will be a "just barely fits" type of mask. The mask sheet itself is soft and plush, and it is soaked in a watery clear essence that doesn't really have an scent. Due to the thicker nature of the sheet mask, I was able to leave this on for almost an hour as it was so moist. I removed and my face was very moist and wet, but it dried down fairly quickly, with no sticky or tacky residue. My skin tone did look brighter and more radiant, very plumped up with moisture ~ but not dewy. Which is a good thing for me & my oily skin ~ I have found that about 90% of Taiwanese sheet masks I have used will give my skin a mattifying look, which I appreciate. My pores also looked very clean and smaller in appearance. 

My wait was worth it! I do recommend this mask to try out !
