Reviews: “I used a whole egg, and I also liked it”
My favorite mask with yolk, honey and olive oil. Only here it is important to make the process a whole course of days in 10.
But then the result is staggering.

The protein mask has become a real salvation for my oily skin, an excellent tool for narrowing pores. By the way, I usually keep the mask on my face for 40 minutes.
I am most interested in the mask with a lifting effect. I see it is quite simple, you can do it easily. And I made an egg mask, using the whole egg completely, without dividing it into white and yolk.
I also liked it. Skin a little bit, but I was pleased. After removing the mask, it feels like the skin becomes smooth!
Egg mask saves money, and its benefit is no less than from expensive face care products. My skin is prone to dryness, and fine wrinkles are already appearing.
Egg mask, really, gives a positive effect to my skin – tightens it and at the same time moisturizes.
