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.
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.
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.
I don’t know about you, but I love face serums. They can be the key to a great skincare routine with the ability to do amazing things for your skin. That said, I was super excited to try California Pure Naturals Renewal Facial Serum. It has the same Blackberry Antioxidant Complex as their Cleanser, plus Argan Oil, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. And it’s a natural skincare product.
I have been using this serum for the past few weeks, and so far I am happy with the results. It has a nice, smooth texture, is easy to apply, absorbs well into the skin, helps keep my skin hydrated (I’ve seriously gone without a moisturizer a couple nights, and my skin was still moisturized!) and all the right ingredients to fight the signs of aging.
Can you believe that it is the last Face Mask Friday of 2018?! This year flew by. And since it is technically still the holidays, I decided to try Ulta Beauty’s Sweet Candy Cane Mud Mask. With cooling peppermint oil and shea butter, this mask is supposed to be incredibly moisturizing.
I love the pink color of this face mask. It brightens up a gloomy day. And though I was skeptical of what the results would be, I can say that my skin felt moisturized and smoother after using this. The only downside? Since it is a Candy Cane face mask with peppermint oil, I expected it to have that refreshing peppermint smell (confession – I love peppermint!!!), but it was lacking that scent. That said, I would say this mask is still worth checking out.
Now, if this is the lump of coal Santa leaves, it may be ok to be a little naughty… Just kidding! Or am I???
So I tried this Lump Of Coal face mask from Bath and Body Works. It’s infused with purifying charcoal and claims to revitalize and rejuvenate the skin. I would say it did just that. My face felt cleansed and refreshed when I removed it. Perfect for a makeup free Friday!
Overall, much better than the other Bath and Body Works mask I tried. Since this one was successful, I plan to try out more of their masks in the coming weeks and months. Stay tuned!
Woohoo, it’s Friday! Who else is ready for the weekend? Anyway, this Face Mask Friday I was excited to try the Masque Bar 24k Black Gold Peel-Off Mask that was in my Influenster Let It Snow Vox Box. With charcoal and 24k gold, this mask is supposed to draw out impurities and brighten the skin.
Not going to lie, I was a little nervous to try this mask since the last charcoal peel-off mask I tried was so painful to remove. I am happy to report that this one peeled off really easily and my skin felt cleaner and looked brighter afterwards.
