Turmeric brightening and exfoliating face mask
The newest addition to my @koraorganics family✨ I also have an empty bottle of my Noni glow face oil and 3 (not Instagrammable) empty tubes of the turmeric brightening and exfoliating mask on the side. Yes, They’re both THAT good! Disclaimer: it’s very easy to misunderstand the purpose of the turmeric mask. At first, It looks like your typical mechanical scrub and you’d be tempted to use it as such. Please don’t! You need to use this product as a mask to properly experience all its benefits. In addition to the brightening properties of the turmeric, the mask contains papaya enzymes and Aspen bark, amazing at unclogging pores and fighting acne causing bacteria. If your skin is relatively resilient, try doing what I like to call “masking sprints”, a fun challenge that consists of using the same mask every night for a week. One of my most successful masking sprints was getting to experience the brightening and skin softening properties of the turmeric brightening and exfoliating mask👌🏼✨🥰 What was your@koraorganics Experience like?

Perfect Spa Day at Home
I recently won a giveway from @JadesJourneythat included KORA - Turmeric BHA Brightening Treatment Mask The Kora Organics mask uses rosehip seeds and quartz to polish skin and enzymes from papaya and aspen bark (natural sources of BHA) to detox pores. It also has turmeric to visibly brighten, reduce pigmentation, and protect against environmental stressors. This mask has the Sephora Clean seal ✅ My first impression was that the smell of this mask immediately reminded me of the spa. A quick look at the full ingredient list I found that it has peppermint oil. This creates a great relaxing experience. Although I would warn anyone will sensitive skin or allergies that this mask includes a couple essential oils, which can cause skin allergies. I really enjoyed the experience of this mask. You can feel scrub of the rosehip seeds & quartz. The mask tingled a little when putting on, but was comfortable. I’ve had masks that are almost painful they tingle so much and get so tight. I left the mask on for 10mins and washed off in a circular motion to exfoliate. My skin was slightly red. Kora recommends following with their KORA - Noni Glow Face Oil. This facial oil is a combination of rosehip, pomegranate, and seabuckorn oils. It’s $85CAD for 1oz. I don’t own this facial oil but followed up with The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil I usually only use this oil in the evening because I find it heavy for my morning routine. But, I think it complimented the mask perfectly and after 30mins has completely absorbed into my skin with no oily residue. My skin looks great and refreshed to start the day, even with no make-up. This was a great, relaxing way to start the day, drinking my coffee before the kids got up! Kora Organics has a KORA - Get the Noni Glow Holiday Kitvalue set that includes the mask and noni facial and eye oil. This would be a great gift for the holiday season or a a gift to yourself :) Thanks 😊 @JadesJourney
My exfoliator series!!
I loveeeee to exfoliate and address one of my biggest skin concerns, texture. I’m just starting my skin care journey and these three were my first pick ups. Turmeric and apple cider vinegar are some of my favorite ingredients in cooking and also hair care. Turmeric is a great anti inflammatory and antioxidant and is known as a brightened of the skin as well. Apple cider vinegar has been known to treat blood pressure and also scalp conditions so I thought it would be a great gentle exfoliate for my face. Let’s start with the turmeric exfoliating mask. This mixed physical exfoliation with chemical. It has rosehip seeds and quartz which you can physically work in after leaving the mask on for awhile. The Bha comes from aspen bark and papaya. My skin does feel slightly softer after using this but not enough to pay 48 again. The brightening effect is minute as well. Now the Apple cider vinegar pads come in a box for 72(ridiculous) and a smaller sample box for 12. Thank god I got the sample because this did nothing for me. Maybe the acid is too gentle but I was extremely disappointed. Guess I will continue to ingest it via the gummies to get the benefits Finally, we have wishful yo glow which I will repurchase. It uses aha and bhas only and really smooths out my skin. It is reasonably priced at 39 and is available as a mini for 21. My downside is that it is heavily fragranced and it took time for me to cope with that. The product balls up and it isn’t dead skin alone but I believe the cellulose in the product clings to dead skin cells which I clearly see as the product which is white will turn grayish brown as I work it into my skin. Did I rant or what lol, I will continue my hunt for the perfect exfoliators for my collection and update u guys as I try them
Most Versatile Mask I’ve Ever Used!
Years ago, this was the first high-priced skin care product I ever purchased. It was recommended to me by a friend who swore by it. Let me start by saying I LOVE this mask. And I have gifted it to so many people who, in turn, have also become advocates for it. The gel consistency is refreshing and ultra hydrating. It’s also helped with my hyperpigmentation (from an intense bout of unexplained cystic acne I had over Christmas last year). So, why did I say it’s “the most versatile mask I’ve ever used”? Here are some of the ways I’ve used it (works for me): Weekly thick layered masks. The recommended time is about 15-20 minutes. But I will really layer it on and leave it for 60-90 minutes. I found this works really well for my skin when there is no major issues. Quick Pore fix: I apply this only to my nose and cheeks for about 5 minutes when my pores need a pick-me-up. After-sun: In the summer I keep this in the fridge and apply to my Face and neck when I can feel I was in the sun a bit too long. I’ve noticed this (in combo with a good sunscreen) has kept me from ever peeling for the last few years. *knock on wood* Overnight Mask: Apply a light layer and sleep on it. This isn’t something I do frequently anymore but at the beginning this is how I began using it. Finally, since this mask is a gel and can be applied liberally, this jar will last you a very, very long time. It’s about $65CAD, but It’s been a good investment for me and is my ride-or-die for face masks! ✌🏼 PETER THOMAS ROTH - Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask

Boscia is Forever21’s new skincare line! The Cactus Water Peel Off mask is suppose to brighten hydrate and smooth the skin. It is a gel texture and very cooling to the skin! #cheriecreator After using the mask three times I have found it to really only be hydrating to the skin. I didn’t see much brightening or smoothing! The bottle is $34 for 8oz which seems a little pricey. I do love that it is a gel peel off though, it is supper satisfying! AND when pulling it off it didn’t leave my skin irritated. As someone with combination and acne prone skin this isn’t the first mask I reach for but I do love how cooking to the skin it is! boscia - Cactus Water Peel-Off Mask

This exfoliating mask will brighten your skin!
Summer Fridays Overtime mask: claims to be a clarifying mask that uses pumpkin and exfoliates with apricot seed powder that polishes away dead skin cells and leaves your skin luminous. It features soothing oat kernel which also contains antioxidants that really pack the brightening factor. This mask is perfect for dull and congested skin. I will start by saying I have very sensitive, dehydrated, and acne prone skin. This mask is my go-to when I feel that my pores are congested and my skin texture just feels rough. But, due to my sensitive skin, this mask does feel a little potent to me. I knocked off one star because it leaves my skin a little red and irritated. If I am careful, while rubbing the exfoliant around my skin, then I wont get irritated. Product use recommendations include: apply a thin layer to dry skin with your hands, massage in circular motions for 60 seconds, and then leave on for 10 minutes. After the allotted time, wash off with warm water and pat dry. You can use this twice per week! My experience is that I can only use this mask every once in a while. Typically once every few weeks. My skin is sensitive to physical exfoliants and I cannot rub it for very long. My skin does get a little red after this but it leaves my skin so soft and smooth, that it’s worth it! I really like how bright this makes my complexion look and the glow it delivers! I would definitely recommend this product for all skin types, with the exception of sensitive skins. They should proceed with caution. SUMMER FRIDAYS - Overtime Mask

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.

✨ Korres Mask ✨
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.

A Perfect Masking Trio
The glycolic renewal mask is the Canadian babyfacial, it completely smoothes out the skin and brightens immediately. It’s a chemical exfoliation with a gentle physical exfoliation I use once a week or once every two weeks for a skin refresh. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Mask The tea tree detox mask is for when my skin is clogged after an ice cream binge, before my period or if I’m too stressed out. It helps calms my skin, reduce the size and amount of pimples and gets rid of excess oil. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Tea Tree Detox Mask The rose mask is freaking beautiful. It is a gel that turns into a cream when massaged into the skin and it’s glow in a bottle. My skin looks baby soft, dewy and bright after every use. I love this for right before a special event (like today for my first day at a new job!)BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Mask
