It’s time for another Face Mask Friday post, and this week i’m reviewing a brand new product from British beauty brand The Hero Project – Resurfizz – a two-step treatment that begins with a self-heating balm cleanser and ends with a carbonated bubble mask.
I’ve reviewed a Korean bubble mask before on this blog (here) and I more or less feel the same about this one too. I have no doubt that these are really beneficial products, but only for certain skin types – particularly oily skin. They just seem to dry my normal to dehydrated skin out. If you have dry skin, I would avoid these completely.
The Resurfizz* (£40 from QVC) two-step treatment starts with a cleanser. You dampen your skin then massage in a Malteaser-sized amount of the balm cleanser – the Thermo Melt. This self-heating cleanser does feel quite warm on the skin, but definitely not uncomfortably. It also contains physical micro-exfoliating particles, so be careful to just gently massage it over your skin – more forcefully will just result in irritated skin. This cleanser is designed to open pores, deeply cleanse, remove excess sebum and oil, and remove dead skin and surface dullness. This balm comes in a tube with enough for four applications.
Once you remove the cleanser with a hot cloth (included), it’s time to get fizzy with the second part of the treatment – the Enzyme Fizz. You get four individual little pots of this as, as soon as it’s open to the air, it will start the carbonating process. With the included spatula, you spread the gel-like mask all over your face and wait for it to do its thing. It will start to feel quite tickly as the mask fizzes and produces large frothy bubbles on the surface of your skin; making you look a little like the Elephant Man. You keep it on for 5-7 minutes before wiping off.
The main ingredient in the second part of the treatment is pomegranate extract. The fizzy bubbles surround your skin with oxygen, whilst the pomegranate Extract naturally exfoliates the skin and break down dead skin cells to reveal a fresher and brighter complexion. Pomegranate extract is also an antioxidant, so it helps protect skin from free radicals. It’s also thought to boost collagen production too. This stage of the Resurfizz treatment just leaves my skin feeling a little bit too tight and dry; but if you have oily skin, I think this would be a great treatment for you.
Have you tried The Hero Project’s Resurfizz yet?
