Do you ever have those days where you want to go Silence of the Lambs on yourself and peel your skin off your face? You're still using all the same products, still eating your usual foods and drinking the same amount of water, and all of a sudden, your skin goes "I'm gonna fuck her shit up today, y'all".
My skin did this the other day and I was thisclose to skinning myself. It was red and irritated and oily and I was at a complete loss for why.
So, I had an intervention. I sat infront of a mirror and read a heartfelt letter I had written, explaining exactly why I was upset and why I thought my skin's actions were douchy and uncalled for.
Not really. I don't have that kind of time on my hands. Well, that's a lie. I do, but I'm 100% sure I could find something more productive (and sane) to do with that kind of time. Like watch all my favorite YouTubers' versions of Vlogmas. Again.
Anyway, my real intervention was in the form of Queen Helene's Mint Julep Masque.
It's a clay mask and it's minty and it smells nice and it kind of looks like baby poo.
You apply the mask generously and let it sit until it dries (about 15-20 minutes). Rinse it off and voila! No red and irritated skin! I'm not really sure why putting minty mud on your face does this, but I don't really care, either. As long as it gets the job done.
The kicker...it only cost $3.99. I know, right? Cheap and it works. You can check it out at Ulta and most large pharmacies.
