A little background about thisGLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask
. It is a hydrating and lightly exfoliating nighttime mask that retails for $45 USD for 80 ml and $22 USD for 30 ml. Itโ€™s also made for all skin types. I used this mask once a week for a month and a half. My first impression was that, like most of their products, it smells so good I want to eat it. Their watermelon scent is just like sour watermelon candy and not too overpowering either. Upon my first application, I noticed that it has a very thick slip to it, similar to a facial oil. I thought this was the natural separation but even after mixing the mask, the same thing happened. I donโ€™t think it affected the performance of the mask, but it did make washing it off my hands a little bit of a hassle. Just make sure to mix it well to minimize this! I have sensitive skin, so I opted to wear the mask for about 3 hours instead of overnight. I used a nickel-sized amount, and that was enough to cover my whole face. One feature of this mask is that itโ€™s supposed to be pillow-proof. I havenโ€™t tested that myself, but I can say that the mask dries down completely and no residue comes off when I tap or rub my face. If you plan to wear it to sleep, I recommend waiting at least ten minutes before coming in contact with your sheets! And unlike some exfoliating masks, this one didnโ€™t give me the โ€œexfoliatingโ€ sensation as it dried down. All in all, this mask is pretty comfortable to wear throughout the night (or day) and it isnโ€™t tightening on the face. Towards the end of the 3 hours, I noticed some peeling around my inner cheek area and forehead. Glow Recipe said that this effect is normal โ€“ itโ€™s just the exfoliating part of the mask doing job. I used a warm washcloth to remove the mask (didnโ€™t experience the weird slip like when washing it off my hands) and saw the usual things I experience after face masks. My skin was soft and looked a little more luminescent. One difference I did see was that the pores around my chin were significantly cleared up! I usually get most of my white heads in that area and this mask totally erased them. That was an unexpected yet huge plus for this mask! For the following weeks, I went through the same process and saw similar results each time. The mask is good for upkeep in the sense that my pores stayed clean and I kept my skin cell turnover high. I wouldnโ€™t call this mask a hero product, but it certainly is a pretty darn good one! I really enjoy the experience of putting it on and would recommend the mini size to anyone who wants to try. A little goes a long way and itโ€™s not something you use everyday. I like mild products like this that still allows me to get the resurfacing effect Iโ€™m looking for every now and then. And itโ€™s such a cute present to gift your fellow skincare pals :) #CherieCreator

Awards: Sleeping Masks
Sleeping masks are one of my all time favourite categories in skincare. I have used plenty different ones and I have become super picky when it comes to what I like! I Have four here that are in my arsenal that I have been truly loving. The GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask Set fresh - Peony Brightening Night Treatment Mask fresh - Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask masks all are a thick creamy consistency whereas the GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask is a thick goop or gel texture. I prefer a sleeping mask that feels heavy on my skin after application and makes my face feel almost greasy the next morning. To me that means that there was ample amount of product to soak in and do itโ€™s work and itโ€™s main job: moisturize. Essentially sleeping masks are just a heavy duty night cream and I literally live for them cause we all know that my skin be hella dry. I find that the peony is my favourite however. Itโ€™s a burst of beautiful floral scent the second you open the package which most people wonโ€™t like (but I love) and itโ€™s seriously the most thick cream ever. I have used it for a bit now a couple times a week and I look forward to my next use because my skin looks so bright, feels smooth and soft and seriously has improved the hyperpigmentation I have. Itโ€™s one of the only products I have ever come across that has made a significant difference - so mighty well worth the $110 price tag! As for the others, I reach for the watermelon when I want some extra hydration to plump up my skin and help it glow. I reach for the avocado when my skin is lacking in moisture, and the black tea is new to me but somehow just makes my skin look good! It looks more clear, tight and crazy smooth. I would recommend each and every one of these masks!! I definitely think they are all pricey, but with a sleeping mask itโ€™s a couple times a week treatment so they last a good while which I believe helps with value!

๐Ÿ˜‘Cute BUT Useless๐Ÿ˜‘ I really want to love it, BUT...
When GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask was first launched, it was out of stock everywhere. My first impression of this sleeping mask was great as it looks cute and smells good, but it turned out that besides that, it was practically useless. It has a weird texture and I see a layer of oil on top when I open the jar. I have combo skin. I tried applying it with the oil and without the oil, but both leave my skin greasy and it can't be fully absorbed. As a moisturizing mask, it's not moisturizing at all, it doesn't absorb and you can still see the dry lines on my skin after I apply it. It smells like watermelon in the jar but once applied, it gives off a strong smell of alcohol. The layer of grease on my skin enlarges my pores instantly. The alpha hydroxy acid in it didn't work at all either. It might even cause acne breakouts. There's no way this can be used as a sleeping mask. It's even hard to wash off with just water when it's applied thickly and I need to use a facial cleanser to get it off. In conclusion, it's just an expensive and greasy aloe vera gel which can't be absorbed by my skin. Have you used this product? How do you like it? Comment here!๐Ÿ‘€

Today I'll talk about this Gre
Today I'll talk about this Green Tea Detox Mask from teamiblends. As a matcha/green tea lover I got really excited when I first saw it! ๐ŸŒฟ Star ingredients: Matcha Tea, Bentonite Clay and Lemon Grass ๐ŸŒฟ Consistency: it's very creamy, thick and easy applying. Typical for clay mask, it dries out after application. It also has a beautiful green color and quite strong scent - but not unpleasant (thanks to lemon grass I guess?) ๐ŸŒฟ Performance: It really detoxifies my skin and drags out impurities. My pores look a bit smaller and clearer after using it. It stings my skin a bit but after washing off my skin is not irritated. Unfortunately it's not so moisturizing, but it doesn't dries out my skin too much as well. I think this is a grat bomb of antioxidants and I like using it when I feel that my skin is a bit congested. ๐ŸŒฟ Bonus: This product is crueltyfree and 75% organic!

Mamonde Petal Purifying Bubble
Mamonde Petal Purifying Bubble Mask โ€”โ€” I will now tell you all why itโ€™s so amazing! ๐ŸŒน 60 seconds to radiance! Thatโ€™s what this mask claims to provide, and deliver on that promise it does. This innovative mask has a โ€œchiffonโ€ texture that is infused with real rose petals to nurture, soothe and moisturize the skin. Once this mask hits oxygen, frothy bubbles start to form, to help clarify and deeply purify the skin. These oxygenating micro bubbles are meant to visibly awaken and even out the complexion, while green tea and peppermint are there to help purify and de-stress the skin. ๐ŸŒน You can leave this mask on for just the 1-2 recommended minutes, but I chose to leave it in for about 10-15. After washing it off, I noticed that my skin was absolutely radiant - glowing, shining โœจ My pores looked nice and tight, and blackheads were nowhere to be seen. This mask is such a winner! I think itโ€™s perfect for those days when you need that instant boost to your skin, but you donโ€™t have the time to sit around with your mask on for 30 minutes.

Today I decided to try the Lum
Today I decided to try the Luminizing Black Mask from Boscia ๐Ÿ–ค๐ŸŒฑ PeelOffMask. Before using this today, I got a dm from Boscia saying that I should use a thick amount and thatโ€™s exactly what I did. It took about 30-35 minutes to dry and during this time, the mask has a nice cooling effect on my skin. Which, I really liked in the morning! When it dried up, I peeled it off from top to bottom and my skin felt really soft and clean! I did see an immediate effect on my pores. They were definitely minimized and most of my blackhead where out due to the charcoal powder. So what does charcoal do for your skin? It absorbs excess oil and impurities from your skin. Which helps exfoliate deep into pores and gets all the โ€˜dirtโ€™ out! Plus, my complexion was brighter which was due to the Vitamin C in the mask. Tbh, at first I was kinda hesitant to try this mask. I saw some videos of people on YouTube and they said it was too painful to take off. There were even tears. BUT I didnโ€™t have such an experience at all!!! You obviously do feel a pull but I wouldnโ€™t call it painful! I think the trick is that you really do need to apply a thick layer โœจ If you want to try this, donโ€™t forget these steps. 1. Cleanse your face. 2. Apply a thick layer of the mask 3. Peel off Top to Bottom ๐Ÿ˜‰ Happy Masking! XOXO Alla Routine P.S. I used the whole sample which was around 10g or 0.35oz and Charcoal Peel Off Masks are painful but this one wasnโ€™t bad!

Sand and Sky Pink Clay Mask - pore refining
Sand and Sky Pink Clay Mask - pore refining
Sand and Sky Pink Clay Mask It is time to now talk about one of my favorite face masks EVER! The Australian Pink Clay Mask by Sand and Sky is a mask you absolutely need! This has Australian Pink clay to help pull out the toxins clogging your pores, witch hazel and kelp to refine your pores and speed up the repair process, Mangosteen and Pomegranate to boost cell turnover and brighten, and Kakadu plum which is rich in Vitamin C. Yโ€™all, this mask is a game changer. The color is an adorable light grey dark pink color. The jar also comes with a mask applicator brush which is way more hygienic than applying with your hands. This mask with help unclog your pores, and give you an amazinnnnng glow! The texture is also super smooth! No scent really either which I enjoy! Lastly, this has no sulfates, silicones, parabens, phthalates, PEGโ€™s, gluten and is cruelty free! Application process: The reason I love this mask is because it is so easy and quick to use. Once you apply it, it turns from the pink clay color to a white color once fully dried, and you can see your pores too (ew but also so good). This mask takes 10 MINUTES, like come on. That is the perfect amount of time and honestly all the time I have for patience with some masks. This instantly brightens your skin and give you a slowly complexion. Let me also mention that rinsing this mask off is SO EASY! It is not chunky or sticky on the face, it melts off so easy and almost feels hydrating and I say almost because clay masks never are! I love just staring at my face after using this blown away by my results. This is hands down the best clay mask for all skin types. Those who are even sensitive could totally use this. I am extremely oily, so this has done absolute wonders for my routine. I would say if you are more oily, use this 2-3x a week, if you are more normal skin 1-2x is a good amount of times per week! Overall experience: This hands down is the best product for your pores. You cannot actually change your pore size, but you can use things to minimize the appearance. Keeping your pores clean is the first step. If you are looking for a product that has amazing results, quick, easy, brightening, pore minimizing, than this is definitely for you. This goes for $49.90, and lasts quite a bit because a little goes a long way!! I would recommend this to anyone it is that good!! I have been using this for 7 months and have no plans on stopping!SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask
