A Gold Of A Glow… Mask

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.

A “Yeouthful” Ingredient – Retinol

I don’t know about you, but as each year ticks by, I continue to search for products that will help keep my skin looking “yeouthful.” Retinol is a great ingredient to do just that… And when combined with the ingredients of Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E and Aloe, you have Yeouth Skincare’s Retinol 2.5 Serum.

Ingredients:

  • Retinol – Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that stimulates the renewal of skin cells, therefore diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing out the skin and even preventing acne outbreaks.
  • Hyaluronic Acid – This is a miracle ingredient that hydrates the skin and stimulates cell regeneration.
  • Vitamin E – This antioxidant protects the skin from free radicals and reduces skin damage caused by UV rays. It is also commonly referred to as a “wound healer.”
  • Aloe – This ingredient is known to soothe the skin and reduce irritations and inflammations.

The Verdict: I have been using this serum for the past few weeks, and while it can take months to see the full benefits of retinol, but I have noticed my skin smoothing out.

Please note – Since this product contains retinol, my skin has been more sensitive to exfoliants and certain ingredients since I started using it. But the redness does go away after about half an hour, and the Aloe and Hyaluronic Acid help keep the skin soothed and moisturized.

Just A Little Healing Mask

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.

If you are interested in this mask, or other masks I have tried, you can find it at in my new Amazon Influencer Store https://www.amazon.com/shop/totaltash

Refreshingly Tone…r

Processed With Darkroom

Toner… It’s the often forgotten step in a skincare routine that can make a huge difference in the appearance of your skin. It removes the remaining dirt your cleanser missed, levels out your skin’s pH balance, can help hydrate your skin and even allow the products you use afterwards to absorb better.

As far as toners go, I have been using California Pure Naturals Clarifying Toner for the past month. It has their signature Blackberry Antioxidant Complex that brightens and energizes the skin along with Black Tea, Rose Geranium and Cucumber to soothe the skin, minimize pores and even out your skin tone.

When using this Clarifying Toner, my skin has a refreshing tingling feeling and it leaves my face feeling extra cleansed.

Add A Little Panda… Mask

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.

A Mudd Of A Mask

It’s time for another Face Mask Friday! Over the holidays I picked up the PUR Cosmetics/Grinch movie face mask collab set so I could try PUR’s four best-selling face masks.

This week I tried the Dirty Girl Detoxifying Mudd Mask with Clay. Overall, I was pleased with the results. This mask definitely gave my face a deep clean and my skin felt smoother afterwards.

The downsides of this mask were that it was hard to remove and that my skin was really red for about an hour after using this mask, so it is probably not great for those with sensitive skin.
