Being forced to stay inside, I’ve suddenly got a lot more time to put on some face masks in the evening, and this is perfectly formulated to apply in the evening before bed as a nice relaxing way to wind down the day. This is another CBD beauty item by CBDFX, after their charcoal face mask and their rose CBD mask.
How Much CBD Is Included?
The single sheet contains 20mg of broad spectrum CBD. It’s organically farmed, just the same as the entire CBD range by CBDFX, while you can read their third party lab test results on their website.
Why Include Lavender?
Historically it has been used to tackle acne issues, unclogging all that dirt and impurities in your pores and clearing out the excess sebum. This is why it’s often found in skin toners. Beyond this, lavender is also great for moisturising dry skin and is useful for people with sensitive skin. Finally, lavender contains antioxidants, which help to fight off free radicals, the main culprit for ageing skin.
How Do You Use The Hemp Lavender Sheet Mask?
First of all you should wash your hands, something people often fail to do initially, then touching their skin and spreading bacteria. After this, you should wash your face with water and then clean it with a cleanser. Both oil and foam based cleansers have their own benefits, or you can apply both if you like.
Following this, you should tap your face dry with a towel and then open the pack up. There will be a protective layer, which you remove from the mask. The mask is made to fit your face, however everyone’s face is slightly different, so you will have to pull and adjust it to make it comfortable. For example, the eyes aren’t quite big enough for my face, the same with many sheet masks, but after a bit of fiddling I can get it to a comfortable position.
Pat it onto your face so it is flat against your skin and then leave it 10-12 minutes. Distract yourself with some TV or lie back and have a quick nap. Once your time is up, take it off your face and rub in any excess serum that hasn’t mixed in yet into your face and neck. Do not wash your face afterwards as there are plenty of great ingredients which are working wonders on your skin.
Why Use A Sheet Mask Over A Normal Face Mask?
The main reason is how easy they are to use. While most clay face masks are made to extract impurities and suck out ingredients from the skin, sheet masks are normally about adding more ingredients back in and contain large quantities of serum.
Sheet masks come in single packs, meaning there is no uncertainty around the amount you need to apply. On the other hand, they tend to cost slightly more than a traditional face mask.
Do I Have To Use This In The Evening?
Absolutely not. It’s in the name, as some of the ingredients are great to help the skin as you go to sleep, including the hemp and lavender, but realistically you could have this any time of day that works best for you.
Where Can I Purchase A CBDFX Hemp Lavender Night Face Mask From?
You can pick up a pack from the CBDFX website if based in the US or in the UK they are found in various stores.
