-My Favorite Face Masks-
I have a couple favorite face masks at the moment. Two are high end and one is a drug store product. I always try different face masks to see what works for me, and usually I don’t feel a difference or one changes my life forever (haha, I over exaggerated a little). As I have mentioned before, my face is a combination of both dry and oily skin. I’m more oily in my T-Zone area and dry in the rest. I do struggle with acne. It seems like the older my skin gets the worse controlling my acne gets. I never struggle with acne in my teens, but now it’s something that is on my radar. I get more blackheads than actual pimples, and if I feel a pimple coming on it usually becomes a cystic pimple (which is the hard pimple that stay deep into your skin). I use to get regular acne (example being a huge yellow pimple), but with the skin care routine that I have been doing I very rarely get those anymore. Even with the cystic pimples, I do get them, but it’s rare now. I feel like I have it kind of under control because it is so rare, but it’s not like they are forever gone; they do randomly appear, they just don’t life daily on my face anymore. I do want to point out that everyone has different skin, and what work for me, might not work for you. I’m sharing all of this because I hope that it works for you.
- Glam Glow Supermud Clearing Treatment – This is my all time favorite mask. It’s the best mask I have ever used, and trust me I have tried sooo many of them. This is the only mask that I find that TRULY helps with controlling my acne. You leave this mask on for 5-20 minutes, but within minutes you can see it working. There will be little dark circles, showing that the mask is helping cleanse your pores. You can use this as often as you want, as a full face mask, or a sport treatment. I personally use this mask randomly as a full face mask, but the majority of the time I use it as a spot treatment mask in my problem areas. For example: my nose, forehead, and my cheek area under my eyes. Those are my problem areas; mostly with blackheads. If you are having acne problems and are looking for a mask to help treat/prevent the blemishes, then I highly recommend getting this one. I have the 1.2 oz, and I have had it for a while. If you use it as a spot treatment, like I do, then it will last longer than if you always use it as a full face mask. The 1.2 oz is around $50, but it is worth the money. I promise you!
- Rose Face Mask – This is my daily mask, it’s infused with real rose petals and hydrates and tones your face. If you have seen my last few posts, you should know by now that I am a toner FREAK! I love using toners, I have them in a spray bottle, not just for my face but my whole body, and I have them in normal bottles to use during my day and night routines. So, of course, I had to find a mask toner. I absolutely love this one because it’s natural, and uses real rose petals. It’s by the company Fresh, and you leave it on between 5-10 minutes; you apply the mask to a clean moist face. Like I mentioned before, I use this as a daily mask but you don’t have to; I just perfect to use it that way. The bigger bottle for 3.5 oz is $62, they do have a small size one that you can get. I always recommend everyone get the smaller items before purchasing the bigger ones and try the product before spending so much money on each one. I am ALL FOR hydration and toner makes. I will be trying new ones in the future, but at the moment, this is my favorite go to face mask.
- Biore Free Your Pores, Self Heating One Minute Mask – I’m at lost for words with this mask. I really do not know what to say, except this is the best drugstore face mask you could ever find. The heat is intense and it just feels great on your face, you can actually feel this mask doing its job. I am usually not a charcoal mask person, the charcoal nose strips by the same company is not my favorite, but this charcoal mask is absolutely amazing. It comes in a pack, I think around four comes in one pack. You can get them for around $6, I’m sure at any drugstore. If you have not tried these, you should stop what you are doing right now and go and buy them. I keep mine close to my shower and use them when I shower in the morning; not every morning, but at least once or twice a week. The package says you can use them two to three times a week, and that this mask warms to open pores and draw out deep down dirt, oil and impurities, leaving skin tingly smooth. WHICH IT DOES! I apply this mask after my face scrub, but before going in with my face cleanser. Try this product and I will go ahead and tell you, you’re welcome. It’s affordable and does a great job, which is what everyone is always looking for.
I hope this helps!
