Recently I have been really into face masks! I while ago, I used to stay away from them because the thought of putting mud or a weird substance on your face kind of scared me but now I love them! Over the past few months, I have been testing out sheet masks, peel off masks, under eye masks, and your traditional mask.
Sheet masks are my go-to. They are always so refreshing, easy, and clean. I have linked a few of my favorites below. Sheet masks can come in all different types of “formulas” to target specific skin problems. They can also come in different patterns such as animals to make it more fun!
The idea that a small little piece of fabric can rip out all of the gunk in your pores is crazy. Pore strips are the first “mask” I have tried and they still amaze me. I found that using warm water or using it right after the shower is the best so that the warmth opens your pores. Biore, of course, is the classic but many other brands have been creating their own pore strips.
After the pore strips, then I ventured into peel off masks. Sometimes, the pore strips would not sit in the areas I would want it to so I wanted something that I could apply on areas that I wanted. I have tried two: The Enlite Super Face peel-off mask and the Glam Glow Gravitymud Firming Treatment. The Enlite mask definitely is more cost friendly considering the amount of product but the Glam Glow mask, I feel, works better. Immediately after you put the Glam Glow mask on, you can feel a slight tingle, whereas the Enlite mask you do not feel anything. Also, after a while, the Enlite mask separated in the tube into a clear goo and the silvery liquid.
I just recently discovered these and they are amazing. While in New York, I tried the H2O+ Beauty Oasis Under Eye Gel Mask. It was so refreshing and cooling and it felt amazing. I also received this Skyn mask in my iPsy a while back.
Traditional Face Masks
The first “traditional” mask I have ever tried was the Glam Glow Supermud Clearing Treatment and I have been loving it! It is different in that it changes colors on larger pores to show that it is working. This mask does tingle a little so if you do not like that, I would stay away from it. Also when washing it off, it slightly exfoliates your face.
