GLOBAL BEAUTY CARE - Assorted Gel Masks
Key Ingredients: Glycerin (moisturizer/humectant), Cucumis Sativa Fruit Extract and Hamamelis Virginiana Extract (soothing), Ascorbic Avis (brightening), and Tocopherol (antioxidant). Scent: Cucumber Consistency/Texture: Gel Price: $9.99 for 3 X 1.7 oz mask each (Rose, Gold, and Cucumber) and mask applicator Experience: I love using this mask after I exfoliate (use about 2 times a week) because it’s so cooling and deep cleansing. It soothes my skin, but also does well to draw out impurities and oils. It also hydrates my skin without breaking it out. It’s easy to remove and doesn’t leave any residue behind. Repurchase/Recommend: Yes, it’s very budget-friendly and have enjoyed all the products included in this set! It’s soothing and great for an anytime mask. This one is a must buy for me because it actually detoxifies and hydrates the skin, without stripping. . SEPHORA COLLECTION - Mask Stick
Key Ingredients: Watermelon (nourishes skin) Scent: Watermelon Consistency/Texture: Thin Clay Mask Price: $8 for 0.88 oz Experience: The stick form can be a little difficult to use in some areas, like around the nose and hairline. It also doesn’t seem hygienic because the bacteria can just harbor on there and you’re rubbing it directly on your face. It is very easy to apply, one of my main cons with clay masks is how difficult and thick they are to remove. This one is thin and easily wipes off with a washcloth. My skin is more nourished and isn’t stripped from this clay mask. I use this 1-2 times a week, depending how dry my skin is. Repurchase/Recommend: Yes, especially when they are on sale. It’s a must for me because it’s quick and easy to use and see results! I’m excited to try others from this line. . SEPHORA COLLECTION - Gel Mask Hydrating & Quenching
Key Ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid (hydrates), Sea Fennel Extract (unifies and and illuminates complexion and restores radiance), and Magnesium Aspartate, Zinc Gluconate, and Copper Gluconate Complex (protect against free radicals; leaves skin refreshed, more toned, and less tired-looking). Scent: Very Fragranced, like Hollister Consistency/Texture: Gel Mask Price: $10 for 1 oz OR $20 for 2 oz Experience: I do like it for whenever my skin is looking a little bleh, but it’s nothing special. It is very fragranced and the directions tell you to remove it with a cotton ball and not rinse it off. I don’t feel comfortable leaving something so fragrant on my face, plus it does feel heavy so I think it’d break me out. Maybe that’s why I haven’t seen much results, but it’s a fun mask to grab when it’s on sale. Not worth full price. I only use this once a week because it’s so fragranced and heavy, if I use it more I’ll break out. Repurchase/Recommend: It was a decent mask, but I’d only purchase it again if it’s on sale (the smaller size is currently $4 when you can catch it in stock). Fragrance is very high on the list and can easily be smelled, even after removal, so would not recommend this to those with sensitive skin.

Product Mentioned
🎃 Halloween Makeup Removal 🎃
My skin type is normal with my skin concerns being preventing/treating acne, making my skin tone more even, and dehydration. This is my typical skincare routine for when I exfoliate and mask, which I would do twice a week. I’d suggest this for removing Halloween makeup to make sure you’ve actually removed it all and didn’t accidentally leave any behind! This routine makes sure all the makeup is removed, but isn’t too harsh/drying/stripping to the skin. . Cleansing Balm: ULTA BEAUTY - Cleansing Balm $6 at Ulta, the cheapest cleansing balm I’ve found and works amazing! It’s important to use a cleansing balm or oil to effectively and gently remove makeup. This one doesn’t have a scent and has the perfect slightly gritty texture that easily transforms into an spreadable type product. It does take a little effort to remove eye makeup, so would recommend going in with a micellar water before and using this to ensure all eye makeup is removed. It is formulated with coconut oil, Shea butter and avocado oil to help improve dry skin with their moisturizing benefits. The first layer of the product is very hard and difficult to use, but once you get past that first layer, it’s a dream and a great cleansing balm! It doesn’t leave behind a greasy film. I will definitely recommend and repurchase because it’s so cheap and does the job! . Exfoliating Face Wash: reflekt - 1 Daily Exfoliating Face Wash is around $50 (received from the company) and worth the splurge! I’ve been using this twice a week as my exfoliating product, but you could use it more often because it’s very gentle. It’s formulated with hyaluronic acid, jojoba esters, vegetable collagen, and vitamin B5. This product cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates to help balance the skin. This is a great step as a second cleanser to ensure you get the leftover reside that can sometimes happen with first cleanses and the makeup that the first cleanse didn’t get. It doesn’t have any scent and would be great for any skin type because it is gentle and not harsh. I would purchase and recommend because only using it a couple times a week will make it last and it’s such a nice treat to look forward to on exfoliating days. . Hydrating Mask: SEPHORA COLLECTION - Mask Stick is less than $10! Currently on sale for $4 👀 It smells like watermelon and has a neat clay formula that easily applies with the skin application. It is formulated with watermelon to help nourish the skin. Hydrating masks are great for help to give the skin back some moisture after the exfoliating step. This mask doesn’t dry out the skin like some clay masks do and the stick application is so handy and mess free! It’s also a nice quick mask (5 mins) so you can go on about your night afterwards and go to bed! I will definitely repurchase and recommend these masks because they give a slight effect to the skin (nothing major), mess free, and cheap! . #cheriepartner

Sephora Mask Stick Bamboo (Mattifying)
I am in love with this Sephora 5 minute mask stick. I’ve been using this mask for about 2 months, I focus it on my T-Zone and it really does mattify, it also has wonderful clean scent. I’ve noticed my oily spots haven’t been horrific since I’ve started using the mask, and you only have to wear it for 5 minutes. I definitely recommend this mask if you’re oily, and it’s only $8 and it has been on sale for $4. SEPHORA COLLECTION - Mask Stick

Skincare products for redness
Hey guys so I’m a really huge mask enthusiast and I think whenever I buy a product from a brand, the first thing I always look for are face masks. I first found out about RE:P Bio Fresh Mask through my ipsy bag back in like 2017/2018. I think this is my second sample I have ever used and I honestly think this mask is one of the best mask I have used! ————————————— NEOGENLAB - Bio Fresh Mask With Real Calming Herb this soothing clay mask helps calm irritated skin and reduce redness and inflammation. It has some fresh herbs that gently remove debris and dead skin cells while you massage this mask into your skin. I love that it has Kaolin which is a gentle yet powerful mineral clay that helps draws out impurities for smoother, and softer skin. It has a very creamy consistency and I’m not sure if you noticed but it has crushed calendula and chamomile, and this help reduce inflammation and aid in skin recovery. . . This is formulated for sensitive skin but still great for all skin types. It’s free of mineral oil, sorbic acid, animal ingredients, surfactants, parabens, mineral oil and propylene glycol. ————————————— I mean I will be honest though... the first time I tried it seemed like my skin didn’t agree but thinking back, it might be because of the skincare routine I used at that time — I think I mixed like 3 new things in my skincare routine and I wasn’t even sure if they would work good together. But after awhile, I gave it another shot and the 2nd time I used it, I was very happy. It helped calm my skin, especially my small breakout at that time. And then since then I just find myself consistently using it for whenever my skin needs some relief. . . I mean, if you have sensitive skin type, I think this mask will be great for you! As for the price point of $32 (4.5 oz) I really think that’s a really great price. I’m not sure how much ounce the one I have — referring to the picture — because that’s a sample/deluxe size. But I mean I got at least about 10 or more uses out of it and it’s just about to be finish.

I have combo skin that’s recovering from breakouts. This is the second deluxe size sample I’ve used up, I’ve gathered my thoughts on it! . Key Ingredients: Greek Yoghurt (delivers instant soothing, cooling, sensation with a super dose of pre and probiotics to nourish skin), Microbiome Re-balancing Technology (balances your skin’s invisible microbiome to protect and relieve signs of stressed skin), and Lactic Acid (a natural AHA that gently dissolved dead skin cells for a natural glow). . Scent: Strong scent, but can’t place it. Maybe like a strong yogurt smell?? Not sure, doesn’t smell like fragrance though . Consistency/Texture: Thick mask . Price: $49 for 3.38 oz / 100 mL . Experience: The directions say to leave it on 10-15 minutes, so I go with 15 so I can relax longer lol. Whenever I go back to the sink to wash it off, I notice that most of the product is gone and has soaked into my skin. I’m glad the full size packaging of this is in a jar because these squeeze tubes were hard to get product out of. Whenever I take the mask off, my face feels nourished, hydrated, and calmed. It definitely provides a cooling sensation the whole time you wear the mask as well. . Repurchase/Recommend: If you are sensitive to fragrance, I wouldn’t recommend this because there is a very strong scent. It isn’t fragranced I don’t think, but there is a strong scent that lasts the whole time you wear the mask and a little after washing it off. I do really enjoy this mask, but I can’t justify spending that much right now on a wash off mask. It it goes on major sale, then I’d consider getting it. Especially since these deluxe size samples only lasted me 2-3 uses. I’m also not sure about the microbiome claims and how well they are supported by scientific evidence. I’ll have to look further into it, but so little is none about this area of research with skincare and the specific species, so I’m not sure if this is a gimmick or real! Did enjoy the mask though, just can’t imagine spending almost $50 for something that’s on your face for less than 15 minutes.

Currently loving this wash-off mask which i purchased about 2 months ago. Indie lee’s INDIE LEE - Clearing Mask is gentle and soothing for all skin types... YES even for acne-prone and sensitive skin types. However, if you have severe acne (e.g. open wounded) please be careful as you do not want to irritate the skin**. This clearing mask contains salicylic and glycolic acid which aids with exfoliating; helps remove dead skin cells. Also contains ingredients that helps soothe irritated skin such as chamomile (one of my top ingredients in skincare products) This mask has helped even put my skin tone as well keep it hydrated after washing off the mask. I use this mask twice a week for about 20 minutes. I purchased this at Anthropologie for 1.07oz - $60 but I purchased this with an employee discount (don’t work there anymore but definitely worth the discount) **I suggest to do a test patch before putting all over your face. I had severe acne too but, after a proper care and going to the dermatologist it has helped clear my skin.

Blue Tansy for Acne, Redness and Pores 🔵
Blue Tansy for Acne, Redness and Pores 🔵
Today I want to tell you all about my experience with Herbivore Botanical’s Resurfacing Clarity mask. First of all, this mask uses 100% NATURAL AHA and BHA ingredients, such as fruit enzymes from papaya and pineapple, as well as white willow bark, respectively. The fruit enzymes gently exfoliate the top layer leaving your skin smooth and refined, while the White Willow Bark is known for its high anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties that help with clarifying the skin. Another ingredient in this mask is blue tansy oil that helps with reducing the appearance of redness. Due to my mild rosacea, I’m always seeking anti-redness, soothing and calming products and this mask was a product I had found and read amazing reviews on therefore I instantly added it to my wish-list. And one day after ordering from Sephora I was thrilled to get a sample of this mask. This mask is to be used 2-3 times per week and my sample had enough for about 3 tries. When I opened my sample, I found the scent of the mask somewhat fruity and floral, and it’s as if when you take a sniff at it, it kind of opens your senses, kind of minty-like. The consistency and texture of the mask itself is gel like and it feels super refreshing and cooling on your face, you experience a slight tingling but nothing crazy. After finishing my sample, I made the decision to purchase the mask ($48) after noticing how helpful it was with my redness and blemishes. And after about 2-3 months of continuous usage this will honestly be a mask I will be repurchasing. I honestly can’t say one bad thing about it, I would definitely recommend this to others suffering with facial redness. On Herbivores website this mask claims to help clarify acne-prone skin but due to its exfoliating properties I would definitely test it out first before buying the product, you can always go to Sephora and ask for samples, so I think that would be a great start!

Herbal Dynamics Cacao & Chamomile Clay Mask
Herbal Dynamics Cacao & Chamomile Clay Mask
The Herbal Dynamics Beauty - CACAO & CHAMOMILE CLEARING CLAY MASK (what a lot of Cs!) is an amazing mask for clearing acne, excess oil, or clogged pores. It is intended to gently target inflammation, breakouts, and blackheads. The texture is quite buttery, like cold frosting, and it has a delicious natural chocolatey scent from the cacao. I have used this weekly or biweekly since July, and it is amazing at resetting the skin. It was kindly gifted by the brand but I would happily repurchase on my own. For a clay mask, it is not drying at all, and it leaves my skin feeling deeply cleansed. The scent makes masking with this an enjoyable experience, although if you get the mask too close to your eyes, the salicylic acid in it can make them water madly. It’s a small price to pay for the great results, though. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone with oily/combo skin. It is fairly gentle, so those with dry or sensitive skin could try, but you might not get the same benefit from it. The mask is only $24 USD for 4oz, so I would say it is worth the money!
