Ok I was wondering What would be the best time to put on a mask?

These are the products i currently use.

1.Neutrogena Cleasing Bar
2.Neutrogena Clear pore soothing Gel Astrigent.
3.Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion

Where could I put on a mask in between those 3 steps?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The mask I have is Grape Seed Extract Peel off Masque

Kind Regards
Rico

I would personally do it after cleansing, so you already have gotten the surface oil/dirt/makeup/whatever off, and you have opened up your pores with the warm water. If you do the mask after applying the other treatments, it would simply remove them and probably not much underneath. Besides the fact that your pores would probably close up again because of the cool astringent and moisturizer. Therefore, all your products would probably end up being ineffective. Only thing is, some astringents are very harsh and can cause stinging... Masks sometimes make your skin very sensitive temporarily, so doing a mask and then putting on astringent immediately after might be a little painful, depending on how sensitive your skin is, and how gentle the products you're using are. I personally would just skip astringent that night, if it were me. And I wouldn't do a mask more often than about once a week or so.

Yeah definately after cleansing because your toner will get rid of any left over residue after cleansing + mask.
