Skincare Sunday!

Hi y’all! It’s Sunday therefore it’s skincare day! yesto - Grapefruit Vitamin C Glow-Boosting Unicorn Mud Mask
So I’ve heard that this mask has caused skin irritation and I looked at the ingredient list. It’s because Vitamin C is in the tetrahrxyldecyl ascorbate form (aka ATIP). It is used because it is fat/oil soluble, unlike pure vitamin C. ATIP is also known to be gentler than regular vitamin C and is good for sensitive skin. That being said, any time you put higher concentrations of any compound, it can cause different reactions. ATIP is pretty high up on the ingredient list so there’s a higher concentration of it. So what the skin irritation could be is from people overusing any of the Yes to Grapefruit products with ATIP - ie. Using more often in the week, leaving it on longer than recommended, putting on other vitamin C products afterwards. Now that that’s out of the way, I decided to use this after doing my normal double cleanse. I didn’t put a thick layer on and I left it on for about 7ish minutes, to be safe. When this mask dries, it becomes this really pretty pearlescent baby pink color, hence the unicorn name. When I washed this off with lukewarm water, I was STUNNED. My skin was glowing. It brightened up my skin so well, my acne spots were much much lighter. The only skin irritation that I experienced are in my normal spots - 1) the skin between my mouth and nose and 2) the skin under the nostrils on the side of the nose. I followed it up with some soothing sheet masks and lots of hydrating products. I did not use another vitamin C product afterwards. I think this is a pretty good mask, and it just needs to be used with caution. Always do a patch test and don’t use too many acidic products afterwards. Have you used this before? Let me know what you think! 😊👇🏽

therainyoneI’m always afraid to use anything “mud” because I’m worried it will be drying to my already dry skin - but I love me some Vitamin C products! Great review 💙

VyshnaviKarraThank you! This wasn’t all that drying at all, my skin felt very moisturized afterwards but I was worried about the irritation that I read about so I lathered up on other moisturizers 😂 I’ve found the ones that say clarifying have not exacerbated my dry areas but I have combo skin so it may be different for you.

Product Mentioned
The best clay mask for redness!
The yesto - Grapefruit Vitamin C Glow-Boosting Unicorn Mud Mask is a creamy, iridescent mud mask that promotes a healthy glow and is marketed as making your skin look good in selfies and day-to-day life. It contains grapefruit extracts to overall brighten the apearance of your skin as well as even out any redness. It also has vitamin c to enhance glow and the evenness of your skin. The texture is super creamy and is easy to apply an even layer all over your skin. It feels really soft as your rub it over your face and not in anyway abrasive. You can leave it on between 5-10 minutes before you wash it off with warm water. ⭐️ I’ve been using this product for a month now, about 2-3 times a week. (This product was sent to me for free by the brand, but this in no way affects my opinion. I have been using Yes to products for years and I find it absolutely insane that I received something from them for free!) I use it before makeup to prep my face if my skin is looking splotchy and textured, or at night when I want a nice base to apply skincare on. I leave it on for usually 5-8 minutes, before it starts to feel really right on my face. When I rinse it off it leaves my face feeling super smooth and bright. My skin tone is a lot more even, since it tones down any overall redness and acne scarring. The effects are definitely immediate, which is something I look for when using a mask. I do have sensitive skin and I haven’t noticed any irritation from this mask at all! I have also seen long term brightening effects from continuous use of this product. ⭐️ If you’re looking for an affordable mask option that will brighten your skin and tone down redness, I would highly recomend this one.

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.

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.

tonymoly sheet mask
i’d rather get coal than use a tonymoly sheet masks. although these sheet masks are fun as gifts since they come in many colors, they are not very practical. the sheet is very large as it covers your hairline making your hair greasy, and the masks are so soaked that it ends up dripping down your neck. your skin does feel moisturized afterwards, but the next day you are left with residue as well as breakouts if you have sensitive skin.

GLAMGLOW - Berryglow  Probiotic Recovery Face Mask I received this mask in my BoxyCharm this month and was really excited because I loved the last Mask I tried (charcoal). I’m still not really sure how I feel about this one. I do love how it made my skin feel afterwards, but at the same time I wasn’t thrilled having it on my face. It burned slightly and made my eyes water which was uncomfortable to say the least. The texture is really nice and so is the smell. Application is smooth, not messy. My skin felt cool and smooth afterwards. With this mask you can tissue off and rub in the excess, or you can rinse off and pat dry. I opted to tissue off. Overall I chose to give the product 3/5 stars. It lost 2 stars for the slight burning sensation on my skin and making my eyes water. The 3 stars are for how nice my skin felt after, the texture and the packaging! Did this make anyone else’s skin/eyes uncomfortable? Tell me below! 👇

Let me introduce you to CRx Skin. (@crxmedspaskin) They are a smaller beauty brand based in Clermont, Florida founded by a Licensed Esthetician. This company’s philosophy is based off two major keys: 1. Clean Skincare. 2. Easy accessibility to all I stand by this completely. I personally believe that you do NOT need to spend an arm and a leg for skincare products, when there are so many affordable options our there that will bring you amazing and lasting results. Fun fact: On their website I love that it states “Taking care of the largest organ of your body should be a priority” And I’m stating this for those that probably didn’t know that your skin is really classified as the largest organ. 😉 ————————————————— I was sent these two amazing products photographed above from CRx Skin and I’m about to put you guys on! 🌱 Glow Body Butter (Pecan): This contains a few lovely ingredients such as shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, sweet almond oil and borage seed oil. This body butter is hydrating & very light weight, but do not get thrown off by the color, it does not leave an orange cast. This has the perfect sheer/illuminating finish, perfect for beach days or any summer day really to give you that healthy glow. 🌱 Turmeric Clay Mask: I don’t know about you, but I personally love incorporating turmeric into my skincare routine from time to time. Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory which makes it great for those with acne-prone skin (like me). This mask doesn’t irritate my skin which makes me happy because mine is quite sensitive. Can we just take a moment to admire these textures though?🤩 ~ *PR but opinions are always my own.

Skin irritation?
Skin irritation?
The first time I tried this product was when it came with a bunch of other glam glow samples. This one really stuck out to me because it seem to clear up any pimples that I had I would leave it on overnight. I want time put this all over my face because I bought the large size and I tried it out as a big face mask but my face was red and irritated for the rest of the night. This product is better for a spot treatment just on a little pimple that you want to go away. I have sensitive skin so it might not irritate your skin. Overall a good product and I love the brand and I would recommend this to anybody Who has problematic areas and wants to settle down the area. You might need to use the spot treatment a few times a week. I like to put it on a little pimple that I get not so much acne but just a little pimple.
