Heavy Week Ahead, Heavier Weekend Behind! Reading Tried & Tested - Kyoku for Men Lava Masque 2 minutes Next Grooming Guide - How to Use Eye Creams


Kyoku for men lava masqueBeing a chronic sufferer of dilated (open) and clogged pores, I'm always trawling through reviews of men's grooming products to find something which will ease my issue. By issue, I mean the pores, I'm sound on all other fronts - just to clear that up!
I've been trying and testing male skincare offerings for many years now, finding what's good, what's bad and what's down-right useless. When I first took to kyoku for Men's Lava Masque, I was impressed by the packaging but that isn't enough for me. I was determined to put the mask through its paces and find out if it delivers.
On application, I had difficulties trying to spread the product across my face. A quick glance on the side of the box tells me that the face and hands should both be wet before trying to use the product. So, on with the water. After adding a little moisture to the skin, Kyoku's Lave Masque covers the face perfectly well. At first, the product tingles slightly and the formula begins to dry. A warming sensation then treats the face to some hard earned TLC.
The mask is rich in volcanic minerals, notably, Sea Salt helps to absorb excess oil whilst Glycerin moisturises the surface. I have to award a Kyoku's Lava Masque with a glowing ten out of ten, the formula is uncomplicated, very masculine and incredibly effective. On no occasion have I experienced these kind of results from a face mask. So, if you're looking for a quick solution to blackheads, you've found it.
