      As someone with blemish-prone, stress-affected, oily skin, I am always looking for new products to add to my skin care regimen. I have tried about a million different kinds of masques, but Lady Soma Antioxidant Masque is by far my favorite masque. It reduces oil on the skin without leaving it dry and flaky, which is the first challenge. It also reduces pore size. Aside from the immediate skin improvement, it also makes my skin more manageable over time.

      With regular use, the Lady Soma Antioxidant Masque leaves my skin clearer and fresher and less prone to blemishes. I use it about three times a week (alternating nights with a hydrating mask) and this has really been an amazingly purifying regimen for my skin.
