Pai Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA Mask Review
Today, I am reviewing Pai Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA Mask, a natural AHA facial mask that I have been using for some time and has proven to work great for my prone to blemishes skin, delivering various benefits.
AHA Acids are great for pore cleansing and firming the skin.
Why did I Pick up this mask in the first place?
First because I love all Pai skincare products I have used up to now. Second, my skin is prone to blemishes but also sensitive, so it really needs a skin detoxifying mask that can get rid of the dead cells, cleanse the pores and keep it 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 also controls excessive oil production so it prevents the appearance of various types of blemishes including blackheads as well as brightens the skin tone and smoothes the complexion.
And all that is achieved in the most gentle way. The sensation it offers when applied onto your skin is cooling as well as calming.
Benefits of this Product and How to Use it
Here is my take after using Pai Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA Mask for some time now. It 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 does not give me any feeling of tightness neither when I apply it on my skin nor when it dries on it. While it is on, it feels relaxing, light and not the least irritating.
After 10-15 minutes, you can soak a muslin cloth in some warm water and remove the mask with gentle circular movements.
What I do to avoid using tap water as much as possible, because here the water contains lots of chlorine, is to spray the cloth with some Avene anti irritant thermal water and remove most of the mask with it before rinsing it off with tap water.
So, how does my skin look and feel after applying this mask? It feels and looks a lot more firm and overall really refreshed and regenerated without any feeling of irritation or dryness.
This product also gets rid of all my forehead bumps and makes my skin tone even and my complexion really smooth and bright. This feeling of a clean, smooth, calm and rejuvenated complexion together with the fact that my skin stays free of those unpleasant bumps for some days after applying this mask with AHA is enough for me to buy it again and again.
What about the Ingredients?
Pai AHA Mask combines a very gentle AHA acid, lactic acid, as well as other gentle fruit AHAs 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 as well as prone to blemishes skin and especially sensitive skin, Lactic acid, which is the mildest of all AHA acids, is chosen here to prevent any irritation or unpleasant reaction.
Also, the combination of Lactic Acid with other effective anti blemish ingredients such as Copaiba and Pink Pomelo makes this mask work great overall and have positive effects for the above types of skin.
Is this a Strong AHA Mask?
If you are after a strong chemical peel mask for your skin, then this mask is not for you since this product is specialized for sensitive skin and the type of AHA acids that are used are all very gentle, yet very effective in my case.
Precautions Of Use
The company warns that since this Pai Copaiba AHA mask contains an AHA acid, it may increase your skin´s sensitivity to the Sun and the possibility of sunburn, so it is recommended to use a sunscreen whenever you use this product.
This mask is not a strong Alpha Hydroxy Product but it is always better to protect your skin from the sun after using an AHA product no matter the strength.
Personally, whenever I use an AHA product, I do not follow with neither a vitamin C serum nor a retinol moisturizer. I like using a hyaluronic acid serum and then a calming and hydrating face moisturizer.
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 a good facial exfoliator.
