One of my goals for this year is to focus more on my skincare to achieve healthy, glowy skin. As most of you may know, especially if you're an avid reader of my blog or been following me on Instagram or Youtube, I have oily, acne-prone, and sensitive skin. Lately, knock on wood, my skin has calmed down a lot and feels more balanced. I recently incorporated a new four step skincare routine, purlisse's Detoxifying Kit, into my weekly regimen to help brighten and tighten my skin.
I love using this routine for a relaxing Sunday night skincare masking sesh. Seeing how Valentine's Day is quickly approaching, I think this kit would be a perfect gift for mom (imagine spending quality time masking together — so cute!), your galentines (BFF masking party.. I'm down), or yourself! As Parks and Rec would say, treat yo self.
For those of you who haven't heard about purlisse, they are a vegan and cruelty-free skincare company whose products blend Asian wisdom with modern philosophy. purlisse's Detoxifying Kit comes with a silver cosmetic bag, which contains their Deluxe (2.5 oz) Blue Lotus 4~in~1 Cleansing Milk, Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask + Exfoliant, 3 Charcoal + Licorice Pore Refining Sheet Masks, and 3 Green Tea + Ginger Rejuvenating Sheet Masks for $55 (a $119 value).

Follow this easy four step skincare routine for a youthful glow using purlisse's Detoxifying Kit. P.S. It's great for all skin types, even sensitive skin!
1. Cleanse: Blue Lotus 4~in~1 Cleansing Milk
This gentle soap and sulfate-free cleanser washed away dirt and my makeup while toning and soothing my skin. Better yet, my skin wasn't dried out or stripped of its natural oils. It even took off my mascara. I'm impressed! The pure scent is also lovely. It didn't do much for taking off my matte liquid lipstick, but that's no surprise. The only solution that wipes off my stay-all-day mattes is micellar water.
You could use this cleanser daily, both at morning and night, instead of exclusively with the four step routine. More bang for your buck, am I right?
Four key ingredients in the Blue Lotus 4~in~1 Cleansing Milk are:
- Blue Lotus: combats free radical damage, as it is a powerhouse antioxidant with anti-inflammatory benefits
- Soy Milk: maintains skin elasticity, as it is rich in amino acids
- Whole Oat: calms and soothes sensitive skin
- White Tea: rejuvenates skin
2. Exfoliate: Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask + Exfoliant
Apply this 10 minute miracle facial on your face and neck for a bright glow. My skin was instantly tightened — sooo satisfying! I can't even begin to describe how amazing and radiant my skin felt and looked afterward. You can see it in my video above, but it's one of those sensations you need to experience for yourself. If I could only pick one item from this kit, it would be the Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask + Exfoliant.
While washing off the mask, you can feel it gently exfoliating your skin, leaving you with tightened pores and incredibly smooth skin. You can use this mask 2-3 times a week for maximum results.
In addition to the Blue Lotus extract and White Tea found in the cleanser, this mask includes:
- White Clay: tightens skin and purifies pores
- Bamboo: improves skin texture
- Ginger: detoxifies skin
- Mushroom extract: brightens skin tone
- Rice Bran Water: improves skin texture
3. Purify: Charcoal + Licorice Pore Refining Sheet Mask
Made with natural fibers, the Charcoal + Licorice Pore Refining Sheet Mask is infused with an anti-inflammatory power blend that reduces skin's redness and oiliness AKA a must have for my oily skin! Leave this purifying mask on for 15-20 minutes, then remove to reveal healthy, radiant skin. I like using this mask once a week; you can use it in addition to the detoxifying mask or by itself.
One of my favorite things about this mask is that it doesn't leave a goopy mess of serum on your face after taking it off, unlike other sheet masks. Just the right amount of essence is left on your face and it quickly absorbs upon gently massaging it into your skin.
The two superstars behind this mask are:
- Charcoal: detoxifies skin and minimizes pores
- Licorice: tones and brightens skin
4. Detoxify: Green Tea + Ginger Rejuvenating Sheet Mask
I wish scratch and sniff existed online because this mask smells amazing. Just like the previous mask, the Green Tea + Ginger Rejuvenating Sheet Mask is made with natural fibers and hydrates your skin with the perfect amount of quick absorbing serum. Leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes, then remove for a youthful complexion.
Meet the power combo in this mask:
- Green Tea: detoxifies impurities, rejuvenates skin, and reduces dark spots
- Ginger: energizes skin
