Fall Renewal Kit – We’re giving away an All-Natural Mask Set!

//Fall Renewal Kit – We’re giving away an All-Natural Mask Set!

Applying MaskIn the spirit of getting our skin fall-ready, I thought it would be a good idea to run a mask giveaway contest.  Masking treatments are excellent ways to treat our complexions, deeply rebalancing and protecting our skin against the environment.  So, I’m giving away three wonderful Pure + Simple Masks that are so rebalancing that I always keep these precious prods in my own medicine cabinet.  Of course, they are all-natural, loaded with organic ingredients!  So if you are interested in some new beauty goodies, enter this contest to win:

The Pure + Simple Sensitive Skin Exfoliant + Mask – My personal fav exfoliant.  This mask rehydrates the skin then gently sloughs away dead skin cells and dry skin.  Not only does it rid the skin of flakes but also helps us absorb our moisturizing products.

The Pure + Simple Rejuvenating Rosehip Mask – A classic hydrating mask that combats dull, dehydrated skin and brings back our complexion’s natural glow.  The awesome power of rosehip works for natural anti-aging and also helps to repair sun damage.

The Pure + Simple Purifying French Clay Mask – For some skin-detox, this mask draws out impurities and reduces inflammation.  Its great for blemish swelling and can also be used as an over-night spot treatment on pimples.  But I love, love mixing it with the Rejuvenating Rosehip Mask to combo the purifying and restoring.

The Pure + Simple Calming Cucumber Mask – Fall can sensitize the skin as its drier and therefore a more irritating environment.  This cucumber mask helps to boost water-content as well as soothe and pacify inflamed skin.

Pure + Simple Cucumber MaskSo, how do you enter to win this contest?  Let us know your fav beauty mask or mask recipe by commenting below.  I’m secretly hoping to get lots of ideas for new make-your-own mask recipes 😉

Contest ends October 4th – so comment away!

    I have never tried your makes yet but am interested in your entire product line. I use a french greed clay powder mixed with a pinch of coconut oil and water as a mask. I would add essential oils if i had them too.

    I loved the Pure + Simple Rejuvenating Rosehip Mask I had during my facial, but a home remedy one I use is avocado, almond oil, followed up by cocoa butter as a moisturizer after.

    I love using the sensitive skin exfoliant, cucumber mask and french clay. Would love to try the rose hip!

    I enjoy making a mask out of egg whites. As it dries it hardens and makes your skin feel so soft. Pure honey is another favourite – it helps to draw out impurities and again makes you feel silky smooth.

    Before visiting Pure + Simple I tended to only use clay masks. However staff quickly pointed out that my skin tends to be more dry than congested and it is very sensitive. So they recommended the calming cucumber mask and I’ve been using it ever since. The hottest tip I received is that rather than throw out my french clay mask I can combine the two in any ratio I’d like to make the clay mask more moisturizing!

    Having sensitive skin that is prone to redness and breakouts means I haven’t delved into making my own masks just yet but I’ve definitely been told the benefits of both honey and cider vinegar for your skin.

    I love the cucumber mask. Pure + Simple helped me get my redness under control. I use it all the time because it is very soothing. At home I have made a honey and yogurt mask. It feels good and you can eat the leftovers.

    I always fall back on a green clay mask that I’ve used for almost 20 years! I need to branch out.

    I typically use clay masks. I would love to try your rosehip mask as I am already a big fan of your rosehip face oil.

    I love my pure and simple masks (French clay mixed with rosehip mask). My favorite home made mask is rice flour (full of ceramides) mixed with soy milk! Apply after cleansing, leave on for 10-15 minutes, add water massage (to exfoliate) then rinse and layer serums and moisturizers as usual. 🙂

    My favourite mask would have to be the Pure + Simple Sensitive Skin Exfoliant + Mask because its one product but with 2 uses associated with it. I love my beauty products but at the same time I want to be economically sensible about what I purchase. With this particular product I can have an exfoliator and a mask instead of having to purchase two separate products. One of the key things that I look for is to be able to save time and I feel like this product lets me do that.

    I’ve always loved the Pure + Simple Cucumber Mask, it feels so cool and soothing for my sensitive skin.

    I use mashed banana with a little honey, it’s moisturizing but also the fruit acid exfoliates and my skin feels smooth and soft after.

    Also, not really a mask, but sometimes I put Weber Vitamin E Gel (from the first aid section at drugstore) on at bedtime and it rejuvenates, moisturizes.

    SInce i started using Pure + Simple Purifying French Clay Mask I have noticed a huge difference in my skin. My skin feels soft and clean.

    I sometimes use honey and cinnamon. This makes my face feel soft and radiant.

    I love making tumeric yogurt masks avocado masks, and bentonite clay tea tree masks! I use rosehip with my moisturizer but I love that you use it in a mask product!

  13. Jennifer September 27, 2013 at 11:38 pm - Reply

    My favourite is the Calming Cucumber Mask as it hydrates my skin and tones down any redness. I like to wear a thin later under my moisturizer during the day to help keep my skin cells plumped!

  14. Alison K September 28, 2013 at 1:03 am - Reply

    I don’t have a favourite beauty mask or recipe as I never seem to have time to enjoy such a luxury. Instead I whip up a simple exfoliate using basic ingredients like coconut oil & baking soda.

    I haven’t yet had a chance to try any Pure + Simple products but I love the Body Shop Warming Mineral Mask.

    I bought the sensitive skin exfoliant + mask two weeks ago during the midnight madness sale. So far I’m very happy with it and looking forward to possibly trying the rosehip as I love tea with rosehip in it.

    i use bentonite clay and apple cider vinegar

      I love using the French Clay Mask first and the Calming Cucumber Mask second. Sometimes, I mix them together!

  18. ellen September 28, 2013 at 2:50 pm - Reply

    I love the calming cucumber mask! It’s especially nice in the summer when you pop the jar in the fridge. I use it as a spot treatment on pimples to reduce redness and inflammation.

    I started using the french clay mask – it’s been great!

    I’ve recently tried the Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask – it is a great natural brand and the mask is great at targeting my acne breakouts (especially on my forehead and cheeks) without drying out my skin. It actually provides great hydration and it helps decongest my skin as well, especially my T-Zone area.

    Highly recommend it; it’s a well-rounded mask!

  21. Erica Di Giovanni September 28, 2013 at 9:49 pm - Reply

    My favorite mask would be egg whites and mushed bananas. Once it’s washed off my face feels amazing! (It’s a fun mask too because the egg whites makes your face feel like plastic when it dries. heehee) 🙂

  22. Kara September 28, 2013 at 11:34 pm - Reply

    Not a mask but a great leave on treatment to heal breakouts, especially those pesky shoulder ones. Mix sea salt, a few drops of tea tree oil, & water in a spray bottle. Spray on after your shower. Ever notice how your skin is awesome on ocean vacations? Bring it home 🙂

    I love clay masks and ones that peel off are great too!

    I use Pure & Simple’s Sensitive Skin Exfoliant & Mask. It is a great two-in-one product. I have referred many friends to Pure & Simple and they are all hooked like me!! As a DIY mask at home, I like to use fresh aloe vera (from the plant), honey and Greek yogurt. Sometimes I’ll add a bit of sea salt if I want to exfoliate after it dries. I’m definitely going to try P&S Cucumber Mask next.

  25. Vaishali September 29, 2013 at 6:49 am - Reply

    I use the French Clay Mask on my face and the cucumber mask for my dark circles. The results have been astonishing. In fact, my husband loves using the clay mask as a spot treatment for his boils on his back.

    For a DIY mask/scrub – I use powdered oats, coconut sugar, honey,lime or lemon juice and sometimes vit C powder (i learned this from Meghan telpner site)

  26. Hazel September 29, 2013 at 3:48 pm - Reply

    I haven’t used any of the Pure & Simple masks before. So I would love to try some! Currently am using a simple european green clay mask which I alternate with an avocado mask.

    My DIY mask is clay mixed with honey. Would love to try the Rosehip Mask or the Sensitive Skin Mask!

    I love a mixture of olive oil, neem powder and honey and also home made pure aloe vera mask. I have a high pitta skin and I used to have acne, but my skin has purified since I started regular steaming and consumming aloa vera juice, neem and turmeric.

  29. Katie September 30, 2013 at 10:03 am - Reply

    I like to clean with honey first. I leave it on for five or so minutes. Then I mix water and grapefruit essential oil with some dry bentonite clay. The honey cleanse prevents the clay from totally drying my skin out while it purifies.

  30. Pam September 30, 2013 at 10:46 am - Reply

    I love using my Pure & Simple Skin Nourishing exfoliant and skin mask because you can leave it on and use as a mask or simply use as a face scrub for a quick exfoliation on your face. Love the lemony scent too!

  31. Candice G September 30, 2013 at 12:17 pm - Reply

    I love your cucumber and french clay mask… just ran out of them and will need to get more! I also make my own mask with Manuka honey and coconut sugar to help exfoliate.

  32. Christine October 1, 2013 at 9:14 am - Reply

    I’ve discovered the Pure + Simple and Holistic Vanity lines a few months ago and I love so many of your products! The only mask I’ve tried so far is the Calming Cucumber and I absolutely love it! I have dehydrated, acne proned and very sensitive skin with alot of redness and inflammation. This mask really helps to tone down and balance everything, it makes my skin feel comfortable! In the past, I’ve made my own masks out of honey, turmeric, and a bit of olive oil, which I also liked, but in the end, I find that the Cucumber mask is much more convenient to use and apply and gives better results!

    I like using a mix of organic (naturally!) coconut oil, rosehip and honey to soothe my skin.

    I haven’t tried any of the Pure & Simple face masks, but would love to eventually try some, particularly the French Clay & Rosehip masks. Right now, I love using home remedies. Particularly an egg white face mask…amazing! I also like to combine honey with some apple cider vinegar or some lemon to moisturize my skin.

  35. katie mclellan October 2, 2013 at 9:15 pm - Reply

    My favourite homemade mask is one made of Montmorillonite clay (non-marine origin) that I just mix with a little warm water and slather on for 10 minutes or so. If I really want to treat myself I steam my face first then use the homemade mask, rinse, spritz with a rosehip/thermal water mix spray, and gently massage a moisturizer to boot.
    This is a great treat or something I love to do to compliment a detox. However, when my hormones are flaring up around that certain time of month your pure+simple calming cucumber mask is the only thing that seems to cool down my stressed out and inflamed skin.

  36. Ali October 3, 2013 at 9:56 am - Reply

    You know I LOVE P+S
    At home remedies – gently exfoliate with warm water and a pinch of epsom salt (the magnesium is great for your skin).
    Avocado, Honey, Coconut Oil, a few drops of lavender essential oil – or another antibacterial EO you may have at home (tea tree etc).

    The French clay mask is amazing! It purifies and takes away extra oil without over drying the skin!!!! Amazing.

  38. Sarah England October 3, 2013 at 12:20 pm - Reply

    I do not have a mask that has really made noticeable differences for me. I would be so thrilled to try any of the Pure+Simple masks!

    I love to experiment with natural remedies after I read about them. I regularly make a paste out of baking soda and water for exfoliation. I use jojoba oil for moisturization & I use diluted Apple Cider Vinegar as a toner. I have struggled with acne for 15 years and after trying numerous pharmaceuticals in the past I know that the answer lies somewhere between diet modification and regimens including strictly pure, natural substances.

    I’ve been dying to try the French Clay Mask. I wanted so bad to purchase it during the midnight madness sale but alas, I had a very limited budget and was in need of new foundation and hair products (bought the sandlewood hair oil which is wonderful).

    I have very problematic skin, which gets congested very easily. It’s lessened since I began using Pure and Simple products but it’s nowhere close to being clear. My weekly mask regimen varies as I have never found one ‘miracle product’ that does what it says its supposed to do.

    When I make my own mask, I use a green powdered clay with a bit of water and add it a couple drops each of green tree tea oil and rosemary. The longer I let it sit on my face the better. Thanks to everyone else who posted, I have some new ideas to try 🙂

  40. Jane October 3, 2013 at 10:43 pm - Reply

    I’ve been using a mix of the French Clay and the Calming Cucumber for years – my reliable go to. When I want to spoil myself, I go for the Pumpkin Enzyme – it is fantastic (but also pricey). Lately I have been putting on kefir from our own grains on my face – I’ve also tried it mixed with oatmeal and honey but it smells too good!

  41. Sophia October 4, 2013 at 2:26 am - Reply

    My go-to DIY mask recipe involves green clay powder, a little water and honey. And if I have some suitable fruits on hand, e.g. strawberries, bananas, avocados, etc., I will mash a little up and add them in.

  42. Leanna October 4, 2013 at 11:11 am - Reply

    My go-to mask is the Pure + Simple Calming Cucumber mask. It smells amazing and it really does help with reducing the overall redness on my face.

  43. Nadine October 4, 2013 at 11:34 am - Reply

    I use Calming Cucumber in the summer on really hot days to cool and calm my red skin but have recently upped my use of Sensitive Skin exfoliating mask to get rid of dry skin and really see an improvement in my skin tone and clarity. But the best of the best is still the fabric mask from the Super Hydrating facial – not available to purchase anymore so I’m saving my stash for special occasions 🙂

    I will forever be a fan of the Pure + Simple Rejuvenating Rosehip Mask & the Calming cucumber…. These work excellently with my own homemade concoction of a Pumpkin Mask!
    Pumpkin, ground almonds, 4 tbl spoons of honey, 4 tbl spoon of plain yogourt & a dash of olive oil. (When in a jam, 2 tbl spoons of Pumpkin, 1/2 tablespoon of honey & 1/2 tablespoon of whipped cream or yogourt) break down measurements in half if only for yourself, I usually have a GF to do this with, makes for some fun!

    My skin is so reactive these days! I use a yogurt mask to calm it down.
