Purify Or Polish: Comparing Two Masks

Purify Or Polish: Comparing Two Masks

We’re launching our new Pink Clay Purifying Mask this month, which is a powerful anti-acne and pore detoxifying treatment that gently exfoliates with pumpkin and papaya enzymes. In this article, we’ll discuss its differences from our popular Vita-B Enzyme Polish, another fruit enzyme mask.


Pink Clay Purifying Mask

A reformulation of an old favorite, Pink Clay Purifying Mask is a gently exfoliating mask that is a superb treatment for acne and irritated skin. Patients can say goodbye to blackheads and whiteheads with this clarifying facial detox.

Kaolin and pink clays absorb excess oils and pollutants from the skin, while pumpkin and papaya enzymes penetrate the pores and dissolve debris. Salicylic acid makes for an even more powerful exfoliating and pore-clearing push.

The mask also contains squalane and antioxidizing soybean oil to moisturize and refresh. Besides hydrating, these protect from UV and environmental damage while improving skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. After use, the mask leaves a soft, velvety, smooth texture, and it doesn’t strip skin.

It’s easy and safe to use on all skin types. After cleansing, apply to the face, avoiding the eyes. Leave on for 5 to 20 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with tepid water. Use up to 3-5 times weekly.

A slight tingling sensation may occur on contact and usually subsides when the mask dries. If tingling persists, wash off immediately.

Pink Clay Purifying Mask is also excellent to use on other areas of acne and folliculitis such as the shoulders, chest and back. In these areas, the mask can be left on for up to 45 minutes as tolerated.

Vita-B Enzyme Polish

For an exfoliating mask focused on skin brightness and soothing, we recommend Vita-B Enzyme Polish.

This mask combines physical exfoliation using micro polishing spheres with chemical exfoliation using pore-cleaning pomegranate enzymes. It also deeply soothes and hydrates with botanical oils and vitamins B3 (niacinamide) and B5 (panthenol).

Vita-B Enzyme Polish is a great way to smooth the skin — its polishing spheres even out the skin surface for a more radiant complexion, and it’s safe to use for all skin types. It also refreshes and removes dead skin cells, bringing young ones to the surface for a healthy glow.

After cleansing, massage Vita-B Enzyme Polish gently onto skin using a circular motion for 1 to 3 minutes. Allow to sit for 10 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water. For best results, use up to once per day.

Both Products

Both Pink Clay Purifying Mask and Vita-B Enzyme Polish are gentle exfoliating treatments that clear the skin and pores, making the surface look younger and fresher. While the Pink Clay Purifying Mask is an excellent acne treatment to detox and prevent breakouts, the Vita-B Enzyme Polish is better for overall glow and softness.
