Happy Face Mask Friday! So I’ve been using Pixi Beauty’s Glow collection for several weeks now and decided to stick with the glowing theme and try their Glow Mud Mask. Full of ingredients that detoxify and brighten the skin, this mask sounded like it would work great.
Kaolin Clay: This ingredient is excellent for detoxifying the skin. It’s known for drawing out excess oil and doesn’t dry out the skin. Plus, it’s safe for sensitive skin.
Sea Salt: Sea Salt cleanses the pores and can fight acne causing bacteria.
Ginseng: Ginseng is a great anti-aging ingredient that brightens and tones the skin.
Aloe: This anti-inflammatory ingredient helps retain moisture, fight acne and soothe the skin.
The Verdict: I always love a good mud mask, and this Glow Mud Mask is another winning skin treat from Pixi Beauty. My skin looked and felt cleaner, smoother and glowing. Plus, it wasn’t dried out. You should totally check it out!
Happy Face Mask Friday! This week I decided to add some glow (and gold!) to my skincare routine with Oh K!’s Glowing Skin Gold Foil Sheet Mask. This K Beauty mask fights the sings of aging and acne while soothing the skin and leaving a healthy glow. But why? Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients:
Gold – Gold is a great skincare ingredient known for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving skin elasticity and leaving the skin glowing.
Apple – Packed with Vitamin C, this ingredient prevents premature agin, leaves the skin glowing and treats acne and dark spots.
Cherry – Did you know that Cherry is known for treating acne and rosacea? It also fights free radicals.
Chamomilla Flower – This ingredient is great for soothing the skin.
The Verdict: I love this mask! It really left my skin soothed and brighter. Plus, it even reduced the naturally red undertones to my skin. I will definitely be making this mask a part of my regular routine.
Who else is glad it’s Friday?! I know I am, and that means it’s time for another Face Mask Friday. Woohoo!
A little over a week ago, I received 16 different K Beauty face masks from Cos W Cosmetics, and I decided to try the Tea Tree one first. Tea Tree Oil is such a great ingredient for skin. It has the ability to soothe sensitive skin, calm redness, reduce inflammation, clear up breakouts and so much more.
The Verdict: With the scent of tea tree oil (it kind of smelled like a spa!), this face mask felt soothing to the skin from the moment is was applied. And the Tencel Cupro Fabric (it’s thinner and more absorbent than cotton) this mask is made out of almost magnetically sticks to the skin and stays in place. Afterwards, my skin felt refreshed and in the following days, my breakouts from a derma roller experience (we’ll go into that later) started to go away. You should totally check out this affordable face mask (it comes in the pack of 16 for only $9.99).
I love mud masks for detoxifying the skin. They help clear up acne, minimize pores, exfoliate, fight the signs of aging and give the skin a deep cleanse.
Now, imagine that mud mask is a turned into a sheet mask. That is exactly what Patchology did with their SmartMud Detox Mask. It’s a mud mask without the mess… well, at least most of the mess. LOL. It is a little messy with application because the mud on the sheet, but much better than taking it straight out of a jar.
The Verdict: This 2 piece mud mask is another Pathology winner! Using volcanic ash sourced from South Korea, this mask left my skin deeply cleansed and glowing.
A huge thank you to The Healing Tree for sending me these Collagen Face Masks for Acne Prone Skin to review. I tried one earlier this week, and the mask has a relaxing minty scent and feels very cooling on the skin.
This mask is both environmentally friendly (it even uses biodegradable paper) and filled with effective ingredients. See below:
Fish Collagen – Did you know fish collagen is a Type 1 collagen that absorbs more efficiently than any other form of collagen? It is a great anti-aging ingredient that makes the skin look smoother and firmer while increasing cell regeneration.
Calendula – Extracted from Marigolds, Calendula oil is thought to possess antibacterial and anti-inflammatory elements, which makes it a common skincare ingredient to fight and clear up acne.
Tea Tree Oil – Tea Tree Oil is known to have a lot of benefits for skin. It has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antiseptic elements, making it a great ingredient to fight acne, soothe skin and itchiness and even help heal wounds.
After using this face mask, I did not notice much of an immediate difference in my skin… BUT, in the following days, I did notice that my breakouts started to clear up. That said, if you are looking for a mask that works instantly, this might not be for you. But if you are ok waiting a couple days for the ingredients of this mask to improve your skin, you should totally check it out.
Mojito and a mask? Now that sounds like the perfect way to kick off the weekend!
I have been having a lot of breakouts recently (I swear, I have more breakouts in my 30s than I did in my teens! Anyone else?), so when I saw this fun looking mask at Riley Rose I knew I had to try it.
The Leaders Insolution Juicy Mojito Clearing Mask is made with the below great ingredients and claims to clear up and smooth skin.
Lime Peel Extract – treats acne, blemishes and dark spots while possessing anti-aging properties. It also leaves your skin glowing.
Coconut – moisturizes, fights the signs of aging and stimulates the production of collagen.
The Verdict: It totally works! I used this face mask last night, and my skin felt instantly smoother afterwards, my breakouts were less pronounced and my skin looked so much better this morning. Plus… it smells like a Mojito! If you struggle with breakouts, you should totally check it out.
This week’s face mask may not be pretty, but it sure does give a “shot” of hydration.
With this cold winter weather (and feeling a little under the weather), my skin has been really dry so it seemed like the perfect time to try Dr. Jart+’s Shake & Shot Rubber Hydro Mask. I had been eyeing this mask for a while and love that it’s a little different. Two pouches come in this cup, and you pour both pouch contents into it and shake until you have a mask! How fun?!
This mask feels refreshingly cool when applied to the skin, and with a combination of Vitamin B5 and an “expert moist complex” it sure does deliver on the hydration. You should totally check it out.
And word to the wise… be careful when opening the pouches to pour the contents into the cup for mixing so you don’t end up with a big mess on your bathroom counter… LOL.
Happy Face Mask Friday! So ever since I was a little girl at the San Diego Zoo, I have loved pandas. My sorority’s mascot was a panda. Even my oldest daughter’s nursery was panda themed (and that was before you could find panda room decor… thank goodness Etsy was an option!), so when I saw this SNP Panda Brightening Sheet Mask, I knew I had to try it. Plus, with all this cold and gloomy winter weather, my skin has been looking a little dull.
This Panda mask is super fun and easy to use. After cleansing your face, apply this mask, leave it on for 10-20 minutes, massage the remaining serum into your face afterwards and your done.
But what did I think of this super cute mask? While my skin didn’t necessarily appear brighter, it was very soothing and refreshing and I would use it again.
So… It’s the first Face Mask Friday of 2019! I’m excited to see what fun face masks I find this year, and I started with this Dr. Jart+ All That Contours Prescriptment (yes, that’s how they spell it) Face Mask. Infused with some great ingredients (see below), this mask helps with anti-aging and skin elasticity. I don’t know about you but I’m all about anything that helps my skin look younger!
Caffeine – Caffeine firms the skin and helps with contours.
Isomerized Safflower Acid – This ingredient focuses on improving skin elasticity.
Aloe Leaf Juice – Aloe is an amazing hydrator that also soothes the skin.
This was an interesting face mask as it came in two pieces that were more of a stretchy gel material. The bottom half even goes around your ears to hold it in place (which also makes it really tight). It was super easy to apply, and the best part? My skin appeared to look younger right after I used it. I love it when a mask shows immediate results, so this face mask is a winner in my book. Great way to kick off the New Year!
