So for todays post I decided to tackle a topic that I have always been familiar with but never actually practiced and that is the art of face masks. I know people recommend you use a face mask (of course depending on what it’s being used for) at least 2-3 times a week. I however, didn’t follow this rule and rarely incorporated face masks if at all in my skin care routine. Although it has taken some time, I have since changed my ways and now try using face masks on the regular. Here are three in particular that I have been game changing for me and my skin.
Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Face Mask
Where have you not seen this mask be featured? I mean from YouTube beauty gurus to fashion magazines this product is the like Jennifer Lawrence of the mask world. I got this beauty in a small travel size version along with three more of origins classic and best selling face masks. Although I have yet to try them all out, I knew this one had to be first. What I love the most about it is that it is an overnight face mask. Leaving it overnight really allows the product to seep into your skin and work its magic. After my normal skin care routine, I apply this all over my face, dab off any excess and go to bed. The next morning, I awake to find my skin soft, supple and breakout free. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a little more hydration in the winter months or for those who have naturally dry skin year round.
LUSH Mask of Magnaminty
Ahh … another classic beauty favorite. Mask of Magnaminty is one of those masks that I would recommend everyone give a shot at least once in their lives. With its punch of peppermint to awaken the senses, china clay to draw out impurities, honey to calm and soothe the skin, and the duel action of the ground up aduki beans and evening primrose seeds to exfoliate, what isn’t to love about this mask? I would recommend this mask to pretty much anyone in need of a nice cleanse and refresh to their skin. Although, I would recommend for those with sensitive skin, not scrubbing too hard when removing the mask and following it up with a hydrating moisturizer or serum.
Fresh Rose Face Mask
I am a big, huge, jumbo fan of anything rose scented. Call me an old lady or whatever you’d like but I can’t help it. So, when I got this mask as part of Sephora’s birthday gift, I was beyond thrilled. Not only is this mask like smearing a fretting ground up rose all over my face, it also serves to hydrate and tone the skin. Two things that I am in desperate need of when is cold, dry, and moisture sucking winter. One thing I love in particular about this mask is that if need be, it can be used daily. If a full size container wasn’t so expensive, at $62 a pop, I would definitely go out tomorrow and purchase a full size. Unfortunately though it is, so I will be having to use this little guy sparingly.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post/review of the current masks I have been using and loving. Please let me know if you’ve used any of the ones I have mentioned or plan on purchasing some in the near future. And again, as always, don’t forget to Like, Comment and Subscribe!
