There’s been so much stress in our lives lately that it’s been showing up on our skin. We have an arsenal of product that we normally use when this happens, but our skin has been more than just stressed lately, it’s been red and irritated, our pores are more noticeable, and our skin’s not as smooth it usually is. We needed a new way to get our skin back to its optimal condition, especially as the season changes. We’re a huge fan of facials masks, they’re a great way to give tired skin an instant pick-me-up, and rubber facial masks is the next must-try beauty secret out of Korea. Thanks to the Grand Central Beauty S.M.A.R.T. Skin Perfecting Mask (Smooths, Moisturizes, Anti-aging, Redness-reduced, Toned skin), we’re falling in love with our skin again. This amazing peel-off, rubber mask is bringing our skin back to its pre-stressed condition. We think you’d probably love to do the same, so we’re giving away this groundbreaking new beauty product to two lucky readers.
