Professional Review: Does the Hot Stone Facial Mask Set actually brighten?

NEW Hot Stone Facial Set Launched
So when the new Hot Stone Facial Set launched, I was ecstatic.
The set itself comes with a box of sheet masks and a black obsidian gua sha hot stone. Now, I have always been wary of hot stone facials because I have sensitive skin that just goes up in flames the minute it encounters something that it does not like. Snow Fox Skincare has truly given me a solution after years and years of searching for a skincare brand that would not irritate my skin or cause any breakouts. Naturally, I was hopeful about this one.
Self-Massage with Hot Stone Facial Set
I started off using the sheet masks twice a week along with the hot stone. It felt immensely relaxing when I ran the hot stone across my face on top of the mask for a self-massage. When the obsidian is run under hot water and feels warm against the skin, your pores naturally will open up and receive all the great nourishing benefits of the mask.
Best of all, I truly felt the warmth unknot any tension along the neck and I can get some great lymphatic drainage out of this without ever having to step foot into a facialist’s (very handy in times of Corona). The great instructions provided in the set makes this super easy to achieve at home.
Little Fun Fact for Obsidian
PS: Did you also know that obsidian is believed to be a crystal great for blocking negative energies and is naturally detoxifying? Ancient shamans believe the stone has vibrations that can enhance psychic abilities too (there is that little fun fact for crystal fanatics like me out there!).
Snow Fox True Luminosity Serum
While the mask’s serum provides an extra boost of strength, I also make sure I apply the True Luminosity Serum daily, a bit of a cult product here on Snow Fox (it always sells out!).
I notice that it is a great addition as after all the opening up of pores, I would want to seal them in with this serum, which is hailed as a must for brightening.
As summer is amongst us, I found it a true saviour that was most useful in combating freckles and discolouration of the skin.
