Today I am going to review Pai Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA Mask because it is a natural AHA facial mask that I have been using for some time now and I would like to share my feedback with you about this lovely product.
Why did I Pick up this mask in the first place?
First, because I love Pai skincare products. Second, my skin is prone to blemishes but it is also sensitive and I really need a skin detoxifying mask that can get rid of the dead cells, cleanse my pores and keep my skin away from dryness and irritations.
Pai anti blemish deep cleansing detoxification mask seemed to fulfill all those criteria because, according to the company, this mask purifies skin pores without resulting in any tightness or dryness, it re balances excessive oil to be able to deal with different kinds of blemishes including blackheads as well as brightens the skin tone and smooths your complexion.
And it does all that, as the Pai company recommends, in the gentlest way. The sensation that they say it offers when applied onto your skin is cooling as well as calming.
What did the mask do for my skin?
After using Pai Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA Mask for some times now, I can say that I am very pleased with it.
First, the mask has a light fresh neutral scent when you squeeze it out of the tube and feels slightly cooling on the face. Its texture is great and is applied very smoothly and evenly on the surface of the skin.
It did not give me any feeling of tightness neither when it first came into contact with my skin nor when it was drying on it. While I had it on, it felt light, very comfortable and not the least irritating.
AHA Acids are Great for Pore Cleansing and Firming the Skin
After 8-10 minutes, you can soak a muslin cloth in some warm water and remove the product in gentle circular movements.
What I do to avoid the tap water as much as possible, which at the place where I am staying contains lots of chlorine, is to spray the cloth with my Avene anti irritant thermal water and remove most of the mask like that before having to splash some cool tap water on my face.
So, how did my skin look and feel after the mask? Before telling you, let me remind you that before applying any facial mask, you have to cleanse your skin first and what I most of the times do before applying this mask is to exfoliate with Pai exfoliator.
So, after having properly cleansed my skin, this mask got rid of all my forehead bumps, which my skin is prone to, made my skin tone even and my complexion so smooth and bright that people around me couldn´t help but noticing and telling me about it.
In fact, now I am committed to giving them a beauty treatment like the one I gave to my skin to make it look so bright as well during the weekend
Also, my skin felt and looked a lot more firm and overall really refreshed, light and regenerated without any feeling of irritation or dryness.
The feeling of a clean, smooth and better looking complexion together with the fact that my skin stays free of those unpleasant bumps remains for some days after having applied the mask, which means that the product is effective and beneficial enough to give both short and longer term results to the skin.
What about the Ingredients?
Pai AHA Mask combines very gentle AHA acids with anti blemish active ingredients to refine your pores, draw out impurities from the skin, sooth the appearance of blemishes and give your complexion a brighter appearance.
Since this AHA product is suitable for oily, combination and prone to blemishes skin and especially for the above types of skin that are also sensitive, the AHA acids that are contained in this formula are possibly not in high amounts so that any type of irritation is prevented.
Also, the combination of those gentle Alpha Hydroxy Acids with other effective anti blemish components such as Copaiba and Pink Pomelo makes this mask work great overall and have positive effects on the above types of skin.
Is this a Strong AHA Mask?
If you are after a strong chemical peel mask for your skin, then obviously this mask is not for you since this product is specialized for sensitive skin and the amount of AHA acids it contains are not big.
Precautions in Use
Reading what the box of my mask says, I will have to repeat here for you to know: ¨Sunburn Alert: This product contains an AHA acid that may increase your skin´s sensitivity to the Sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing and limit sun exposure while using this product.¨
This mask is not a strong AHA product, as I have said, in any way and since it is created for sensitive types of skin, you can imagine how gentle it is. Still, the company has to provide you with the precaution measures they find responsible to give for you to be able to use their product in the best possible way.
In my case and because as I told you my skin is sensitive, I am conscious of not applying any vitamin C serum on my face for a couple of days after having applied the mask, because vitamin C can be a bit strong on the skin, and also generally apply more gentle and calming skin care products.
For my prone to blemishes sensitive skin, Pai Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA Mask is perfect at cleansing and detoxifying my skin, making it even, smooth, firm and bright looking.
So, do I love this Mask? YES..YES..YES! Love can´t hide..and of course I love it even more when I combine it with Pai´s exfoliator.
