Why I Love Sheet Masks 💗
Today, I'm going for a classic sheet mask. While your skin won't change after 30 minutes of wearing a sheet mask, they're a lovely addition to your skincare routine. Here's why I love sheet masks: 1) They're travel-friendly 2) They are mess-free 3) They can be chilled for extra anti-inflammation power My skin has been acting up lately (I'll talk more about that soon). So, to help keep everything under control, I'm choosing this one with royal jelly. 🍯 Used both topical and orally, royal jelly is antibacterial, which can help fight acne-causing bacteria and prevent infections. Plus, it's said to help boost collagen production to speed up cell turnover, which equals in a new skin, aka less dark spots. 💗 Are you a sheet mask lover? What's your favorite one?

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

The rosy lana polishing face mask definitely has one of the most interesting textures I've used, it's like a scrub / mask and you leave it on for about 15 mins. Then you take it off, it smells like fresh bananas out of the jar, it's just lovely. It leaves your skin super smooth afterwards. Love the packaging on all her products, they are so beautiful. I've only used the herbal dynamics diamond & pearl firming gel mask. But I loved the scent of this mask so much. It made my skin feel very hydrated and smooth after taking it off. Will be continuing to use this mask. I really have enjoyed the rosen skincare tingling mud mask, I've used this mask 3 times now and it's also very nice, it has a strong herbal scent to it must be the tee tree oil in it, which I didn't mind. Knowing it was gonna help with the breakout I was having and congestion.This mask is perfect for breakouts. It helped clear up a spot on my face in just two days. The tarabusi creek enchanted face mask smells also really nice. It has some wonderful ingredients in it, second ingredient in it is matcha green tea, which I really liked. I used this mask once and I loved the whipped texture it has in the jar, lovely consistency. I can't wait to use this mask again. This mask left my skin feeling smooth and bright.
I’ve wanted to try @korres.skincare products for the longest time. Even before I created this insta account, something about the brand’s aesthetic drew me to them. Finally, I picked up a product from them; their new Hydra Biome Probiotic mask. I’ve used it a few times, but already feel confident to give my opinion on it. It smells exactly like Greek yogurt. The smell is strong, but to me, it’s delicious so it doesn’t bother me. It’s a rich mask, and feels heavy on the skin. I personally leave it on for around 20/30 mins. After I’m done, I use a wet cloth or a wet paler towel to remove the mask (it’s hard to get off by simply washing off). Personally, I haven’t noticed this mask do anything for me. It didn’t calm my irritated (from breakouts) skin, it didn’t make it softer (immediately or on the next day); it did nothing. My opinion is that this mask is best for people who are just venturing into skincare. For those who yet don’t have the best serums for their concerns, or other masks. Since I’ve been into skincare for some time, I already have other products that address concerns such as redness and irritation better than this mask. Even though this mask didn’t work for me, I’m still excited to try other products from the brand!
A dream mask combination! I love the VO Beauty Ocean Goddess Detox Mask. It’s a beautiful green powder made with Chlorella, Moringa, and Spirulina to detoxify, brighten, and reduce inflammation. I love that it’s in a powder form so I can mix it with any liquid or cream base like water, yogurt, honey, or my other masks. Tonight I mixed it with the Elemis Superfood Vital Veggie Mask which is full of nutrients from wheatgrass, kale, nettle, avocado and chia seed oils to nourish and soften my skin. It’s the perfect base for the VO Beauty Mask! It also has Vitamin C and Passionfruit acids to gently exfoliate and brighten the skin. ELEMIS - Superfood Vital Veggie Mask

Soak Opera Blossom Face Mask - has rose clay, rice, hibiscus flower and pomegranate. Best for restoring the skin’s radiance as well as eliminating gunk. This really helped brighten my skin every time I used it, the ingredients are great for improving your complexion making it look more even toned after wash-off. Evergreen Face Mask - packed with chlorophyll (been loving this ingredient lately), vitamins and antioxidant from moringa, chlorella, spirulina, and neem. I use this more as a spot treatment and noticed that it calms down a bright red pimple so it heals much faster than just waiting for it to subside on it’s own. Could be a local dupe for Cocokind’s Organic Ultra Chlorophyll Mask? Sunshine Face Mask - might be my fave among the three! This multi-purpose mask will help you prevent from having acne, even out your skin tone, and any dark spots that you might have with consistent use. This combats a number of skin problems with the help of turmeric and sandalwood, as well as vitamin C

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.
