Wine + Mask Wednesday (Lock & Worth Cabernet Franc Rose & Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask)

Yay - time for another Wine and Mask Wednesday (clearly my favorite day of the week!)

My wine this week is a little different, but from another Okanagan winery: Here is how Lock & Worth describe this wine:
"1.5 acres. Naramata. Sand. Whole cluster pressed (3 hours of skin contact). Raised in neutral French oak for 6 months. No fining or filtration.
Alpine strawberry, white cranberry, red apple skin. Dry, crisp, bright and cloudy with a chance of solids"

So they do say that because the wine isn't filtered, there could be some residue. 

This is from Lock & Worth Winery - Cabernet Franc Rose $20. 

Lock & Worth consider themselves to be a bit of "different" winery:
"Our wines are not for everyone and never will be. We make single vineyard, focused wines without pretense. Some say they are unnerving and contrarian. We say drink different."

I love the motto and love that they are a little different from all the other wineries! Here is a closer look at the wine:

It is a very interesting color and it tastes great! It is a little crisp for a rose, and not very sweet - you can certainly taste the cranberry! 

Now, since I featured a "different" wine, I thought I would feature a "different" mask too! 


The Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask ~ $16.90. This mask is described as:
"Creamy clay mask purges pores clean of excess sebum and trapped dirt with thousands of tiny bubbles diving deep into pores for a thorough clean. Clarifying clay tightens and tones, drying out blemishes and preventing future ones from taking root for improved skin clarity. To prevent pore congestion, treat face to a clay mask at least twice a week."



It comes tightly packaged, so you can re-seal it and air doesn't get to the mask! Also, I love the little spatulas that come in these masks! 

Wash your face and then apply this mask - it starts to work very quickly! Here are the steps I followed:

1. Wash face and let dry.

2. Apply mask with spatula - allow to sit for 5 minutes:


Here is the mask when first applied


Here is the mask after 30 seconds


Here is the mask after 1 minute


Here is the mask after 5 minutes

2. After 5 minutes, use some warm water and rub the mask in. 


This is what it looks like with water/ rub in

3. Rinse off well (this takes a little bit)

4. Complete nightly skin care routine.

This mask is so fun!! The bubbling was so cool and felt really awesome. It worked really well for cleaning out pores and removing impurities! I will happily use this again! 

I'm liking my "different" Wine and Mask Wednesday! Would love to hear what you did for your Wine and Mask Wednesday!!
