While you've technically had a week and a bit to recover from all the holiday shenanigans you may have drank yourself into, your skin might not be back in fighting form. From too many late nights, delicious, but not so great-for-you foods, stress, and the fore mentioned drinky-poos, the holidays can do a number on your skin. Luckily, there's a solution- and it couldn't be easier, because, work... No thanks. Anyway, it's Rodial Super Acids X-Treme Hangover Mask! Read on.

The Rodial Super Acids X-Treme Hangover Mask is one of those products that sounds pretty good, but once you use it, it's straight up love at first use. As much as I love masks and do enjoy finding the perfect masks to use in combo- triple threat facial Sundays!- there are times when you want one-and-done action. This is the mask for those times as it brings triple action (resurfacing, deep cleansing and exfoliation) with one step to reveal bright and smooth skin.

As the name suggests, this mask is formulated with all kinds of good for your skin acids- Azeliac, Lactic and Glycolic- to perform a number of tasks such as reduce production of keratin (which means less dark spots), kill bacteria, moisturize and smooth and refine texture. Acids are amazing, btw. Also included in the mix- a host of fruit extracts including pineapple, pomegranate and grape, which might contribute to the tart and fresh citrusy scent the mask has.

The mask is super simple to use, as you just apply it, let it dry- about 10 minutes- then rub it off and rinse. The rub off stage of the mask reminds me of Asian rolling scrubs/masks that ball up and remove all the impurities and dead skin from your face. Once the mask is removed, it's like you've got a whole new face as it brightens dull skin and leaves it feeling so smooth and fresh. Plus, the fact that it's fairly quick, makes it perfect for morning use after a sleepless night (for whatever reason...)

Overall, this is a perfect mask! I love that it combines three actions in one and that the results are visible on the first use. Rodial has a whole range of products in Super Acids line (see them all here) should you need even more of those amazing acids. Tried this? What's your go to mask/product when your skin needs a little S.O.S?
