Mask Review • Keep Your Cool
Who is she?🌿 • “This unique gel mask help reduce the appearance of breakouts. Coconut soothes blemishes while refreshing cucumber helps calm even the most angry of flare-ups. The result? Skin is cool, calm and under control.” Overview 🌿 • The Feel: Extremely smooth! Really goes on like butter! That being said it’s extremely moisturizing, and I personally have more oily-skinned friends stay away unless it’s really needed!🥞 • The Scent: I don’t find it extremely coconut scented, but more so cucumber scented. It’s very very neutral though, which is nice especially if strong scents don’t vibe with you! No scent induced headaches here! That being said I love being slapped by scent, so I was a little sad that I wasn’t getting WWE chair whacked by a coconut, but my less scent-happy mates love her! 🥥🥒 When to use her 🌿 • I messed with my acne and now it’s ANGRY! 😡Whenever you absentmindedly mess with blemishes and agitate them, this is a good girl to go to! While she is mainly advertised for calming down angry skin, she really does a good job of getting acne to diminish. It’s also nice to have a mask that gently hugs acne away versus feeling like the burn of a thousand suns so...yay! • “My partner just did acne extractions and my skin is red now”🙋🏼♂️ A common comment from my boyfriend! We have found that acne extractions really help his skin, but this is great to follow up those sessions with! • Wait that mask I just used WWE chair whacked me and now I hurt! 🤯 Ouch! Soothe that face with this mask it’ll feel superb trust me! It’ll also get rid of any redness! • I live in the South and think I live above the law and didn’t use sunscreen to feel alive...🌞 Thrill seeking has risks, and now your skin doesn’t feel too lively eh? Add this to your routine to help calm your skin calm down while it gets out it’s anger at you. • Oh no! My dog’s wedding is in 4 hours and need a quick acne fix! 🐕 Man if I had a dime, I’m telling you. Fear not dog parent, use this, and it will help diminish the blemish! It also won’t make your skin red by any means, and will leave you feeling more awake and fresh faced! What I think about her🌿 SHE IS MY FAVORITE FORMULA 10.0.6 MASK! My boyfriends as well! She is the friend you go to when things are just a lil too difficult! If my skin is angry or dying from the sun, I go crying to her and she really does the most! It’s really one of the nicest things you can do for yourself though, it feels like heaven! Also I’ve already said it but it really does help blemishes go down a good bit! Bonus tip🌿 Chill her in a Cooluli - Classic 4 Liter Small Mini Fridge
this item is a MUST for all skincare mavens
This magical item isn’t the best purchase I’ve ever made. The product I’m talking about is a... SKINCARE FRIDGE! This amazing mini cooler has so many benefits such as: It keeps products fresh and lasting longer. Keeping your skincare in a colder temp will keep them from expiring as quickly. Skincare products that are chilled can help calm the skin. Our skin can become inflamed for any number of reasons, like a breakout, but cooling products calms our skin even more. The fridge temperature will keep bacteria away from your products, so your products remain clean and sanitary. It’s just fun, cute, and handy! This skincare fridge is seriously so much fun I would definitely recommend it to anyone beginners and experts alike!
A College Student’s SKIN CABINET On the Go!
Welcome to my on the go skin cabinet! I’m so thrilled to be working with Cherie and Skin Cabinet for the next few weeks!🤩 That being said, let’s start out with how I organize my favorites!🥰 • Being a college student, I’m moving around a lot between home and my apartment at school. So, I needed an easy way to hold all of my products that did not take up too much room. College living is definitely making the most of smaller spaces! 🧺 My Two Organizers 🌿 • My little clear organizer I found at TJ Maxx for around $8, which is a great price considering most I have seen go for about $20! 🤑 • The very cute mini makeup fridge is a Cooluli - Classic 4 Liter Small Mini Fridge It comes in plain colors, but I’m from the south so it’s all about Coke here! I absolutely love my little fridge, but there is a large emphasis on ‘little.’ I think in the future I’ll want to size up, as my of my products are really tall and take up loads of space! If you have mainly smaller serums or such products, I believe the smallest sized fridge would serve you well! ❄️ To name a few favorites in the clear organizer🌿 • I have my Formula 10.0.6 mud and peel masks (I have some reviews up already, and I’ll be sure to get through them all in the future!) • My NATIVE - Citrus & Herbal Musk The one I have was seasonal, and it’s scent is cypress and ginger! Also they are now doing plastic free packaging which I am THRILLED about! • My bh - Crystal Zodiac 12 Piece Brush Set which I will have in a review coming up! In this picture they had just been washed and were still drying, which explains the lack of fluff • The lotion is PACIfICA - Indian Coconut Nectar Body Butter Tube This lotion was a godsend when I was staying at the hospital for a week a few years ago, and I have used it ever since! • And of course my clarisonic - Mia Smart Skincare + Mario Badescu Holiday Gift Set What’s Inside the Fridge 🌿 • I love the way the FORMULA 10.0.6 - Keep Your Cool Mask feels chilled! Go check out my post about the mask to learn more about why I adore it! 🧊😍 • The FORMULA 10.0.6 - So Totally Clean Deep Pore Cleanser is also in there. This stuff is a miracle worker, but I’ll be the first to admit it stings. That being said I like the contrast of stinging with the cold! • Lastly, I keep one of my FORMULA 10.0.6 - Best Face Forward Daily Foaming Cleanser in here! I use the chilled one in the morning for an extra wake up call! Note 🌿 •While these are not all the products in my organizers, these are my favorites! If you have questions about something you see that I didn’t touch on please ask me about it! • I am so ecstatic to share what is coming in the next few weeks! See you then! 🙌🤩

Oh Tea Tree oil, the Peacemaker
My go-to mask for oh, so many reasons. I think we tend to forget about the body shop and it's perfect yet simple products. This is their "clarifying clay mask" specifically designed for blemish prone skin to "remove impurities while soothing" skin. There is no less truth in their statement. I use this as soon as I think I am about to breakout, I use this when I come back from vacation, I use this when I realize the hectic week had me neglecting my skin. I've been in love with this product for over a year. It's perfect for any onset of breakout or stress, it's soothing without any burning, and the tingle only comes as a cooling effect which I absolutely love when my skin is being... needy. I like to use this 2 times a week and love the whipped texture. It's even refreshing when you put it on! (Tip: I use a flat brush.) And for $17 it's absolutely worth it!

Let’s talk face masks for acne
The Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask is marketed as a pore-refining mask with super-powered Australian botanicals. It's meant to be a solution for pores, blemishes & acne, and oiliness. The texture here is similar to your usual clay mask, but what i love about this particular one is how smooth it is and non-drying it is on the skin. Definitely one of my favorite clay mask textures for sure. I decided to try this mask around a month ago since I've recently struggled with acne here and there. I had heard this mask in particular was great for clearing up skin blemishes and reducing acne flair-ups. Plus the before and after photo on their websites are incredible! In terms of my experience, I REALLY like this mask and I feel it is the best mask I've tried that helps with blemishes and preventing acne. It's really one of the few face masks that truly does what it says it does. As mentioned, I also really love how this mask doesn't dry out my already dry skin! Overall, if i put this on when i feel a breakout coming on, it's definitely helps my blemishes fade quickly and redness always goes down fast. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone! Like i said, it does what it says it does and is one of the few products I own that truly helps me when I'm battling a breakout. It sells for $50 which I'd say is worth it since it's an effective product with great ingredients. I would rate this product 5/5. SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask

HD Beauty Cacao and Chamomile Mask
The Herbal Dynamics Beauty Cacao and Chamomile Clearing mask is a LIFESAVER for acne prone skin. This product is intended to calm and clear inflamed skin. It uses clay to clear out your pores, and sulfur and salicylic acid to treat active breakouts and inflammation. The tub is HUGE, so you get a ton of product....and it smells like chocolate milk! The mask has a really interesting texture — it’s kind of whipped and cooling, like a thicker icing, but spreads nicely. It does dry fast, so if you leave it on more than the 15 recommended minutes, it can make your face feel kind of tight and crack-y, so make sure to wash it off on time. Also beware that sometimes the sulfur in the mask can irritate your eyes, even if you don’t put the product near your eyes. I think the fumes from the sulfur are a little much for my sensitive eyes, so just be mindful. Regardless of that, this mask is the BEST mask for treating active acne. I see such a huge difference INSTANTLY after removing this mask. I’ve been using this for over 6 months, and has been my go to mask anytime I’m dealing with breakouts. Sulfur is a super ingredient for my skin and my acne, so this mask is a shining star for me. I would recommend this product to anyone and everyone dealing with acne, whose skin can handle sulfur. Not only is the product size HUGE, it’s at such an affordable price, it’s almost criminal! This mask is an incredible value and WORKS, so I don’t see any reason not to try it!

Herbal Dynamics Beauty-CACAO & CHAMOMILE CLEARING CLAY MASK
Face mask for Acne
FIRST AID BEAUTY - Skin Rescue Purifying Mask with Red Clay “A 20-minute peel-off mask that helps purify skin, reduce the appearance of pores and control excess oil.” It is good for all skin types including sensitive skin. Red clay improves skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis. It is also great for acne-prone skin as it cleanses by drawing out skin impurities, thus regulating production of sebum and unclogging pores. It is free of Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates. The product targets oiliness, pores, blemishes. KEY INGREDIENTS: Glycerin (moisturizes); rosemary leaf oil (tones); licorice root, feverfew, and white tea (antioxidants); red clay (absorbs dirt and oil) The mask is of red color. It has the consistency like of jelly but it is not very sticky. It is a peel-off mask, so you apply an even layer on your face and leave for 20 minutes for the mask to dry. Then you simply peel away the mask. My skin felt fresh and visibly clearer after using this mask. My skin did not feel tight or irritated. Though the process of peeling it off was a bit difficult for me. I have used this mask 3 times, and every time I couldn’t peel it off well. So, I ended up washing with water and it took lots of effort to remove it. The price of the product is $30 for 3 oz which is pretty reasonable. I recommend this product as mineral rich red clay is really good for acne and improving skin texture. It also doesn’t dry out the skin. It is safe for sensitive skin. However, it has Polyvinyl alcohol as second ingredient. So, it might not be for those whose skin is sensitive to alcohol.
FIRST AID BEAUTY-Skin Rescue Purifying Mask with Red Clay
My favorite face mask
If you have remotely sensitive skin, then this face mask is not for you. This face mask has a tingly sensation, and may leave redness due to the tea tree and salicylic acid in it (both of them are famous for redness, but it’s only temporary). I recommend rinsing with a soothing wash if you experience redness. The tea tree is a natural antibacterial remedy that is great for clearing acne and stopping the spread of breakouts. Keep in mind that when using detoxing products, breakouts will follow for a short period, this is only due to the product pulling all of the gunk from deep within your pores so give it a bit to notice clear skin.
SheaMoisture-African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask
Mask of Magnaminty
🌱 The what: This is the mask of magnaminty mask for face and body. This product is made by and available at Lush. 🌱 The details: This product is suitable for use on face and body. It contains amazing ingredients to purify your pores, exfoliate away flaky skin, calm redness, and moisturize your skin. Four of the main fresh ingredients include kaolin clay ( to remove excess oil from your pores), peppermint oil (to provide an invigorating, tingly clean sensation + scent), honey (to provide moisturize and sooth), and ground aduki beans (to exfoliate). Lush as a company prides itself on using fresh, quality ingredients. This mask is self-preserving, and comes in multiple sizes. This mask is suitable for all skin types, and is excellent for acne-prone skin because of its purifying and oil-busting properties. 🌱 My thoughts: The first thing that drew me to this mask in-store a few weeks ago was the scent. It smells like a mint cookie! The next is that it includes kaolin clay, which is amazing for getting rid of excess pore-clogging oils. The associate explained that this mask is great for acne-prone skin, whether dry or oily, because of the kaolin and soothing honey. I’ve used this mask 4 times now with no adverse affects. It tingles a little when applied (hello, peppermint oil!). The first 2 times I applied it, I had active blemishes on my face. I noticed that the blemishes healed quicker and I haven’t had many since. The ground aduki beans are great for providing gentle exfoliation. My face never feels stripped after using; it feels moisturized and my redness is soothed. I even got my fiancé to use it (which is a huge deal). You don’t need a lot of product to cover your face. I don’t have problems with body acne, so I won’t be using it on my body. Overall, it’s a great bang for your buck and I would repurchase! 🌱 The price: $14.95 for 4.4 oz. Larger sizes are available (up to 21.1 oz.) 5/5⭐️
