que bella - Indulgent Rose Hip Oil Mud Face Mask
I had to go to Target anyway so I figured while I was there I’d grab a Que Bella face mask. I’ve purchased other ones before and never had a bad experience, and I love using rose on my face so this seemed like a no-brainer purchase to me! But it ended up burning my face!! I washed my face as normal (double cleanse: oil cleanser then a water-based, followed up with toner) and applied this mask. It smelled very nice but slightly more fragrancy than rose products I use usually smell like. Within not even 2 minutes of having this mask on, I could feel my cheeks/t-zone burning and had to take the mask off. My t-zone was red and became sensitized. Luckily I took it off early enough so I didn’t do any intense damage, but its been two days since I’ve used this mask and my skin is still slightly dried out and irritated. Overall a terrible experience with Que Bella- unlike any that I’ve had before! When I first looked at the ingredients, I noticed fragrance being listed as one of the last ones. This didn’t bother me as a lot of products have fragrance, and as long as its naturally derived that doesn’t irritate my skin. I did further research and the other Que Bella products that I’ve used don’t have fragrance listed. Lesson learned: Always pay attention to the ingredients, even the last ones, and even if you’re already familiar with the brand!! Had I gone the one step further prior to using the mask, I wouldn’t have irritated my skin like I did and I would have known that the fragrance in it would harm me!! So no, I do not recommend this product as it contains unnaturally derived fragrance and can harm skin, especially sensitive skin like mine! But overall, Que Bella is a great afforable brand that has plenty of other masks to suit your skin’s needs!

TATCHA VS QUE BELLA
Okay so these Que Bella mask are the shit! Pardon my language but they seriously are. I’m obsessed. I can’t believe their only 1.99 at Target. They are all dermatologically tested and cruelty free. I have been using them since January, ever since my boyfriend got me one for my birthday. To be honest I only used it to be nice haha but then I was like holy crap I’ve never loved a mask so much! Now don’t get me wrong the Tatcha mask is nice, lots of serum and easier then mud mask in general. But if there is a contest, I would choose these Que Bella Mask over Tatcha mask any day. Especially since this mask is 16.99...NOT WORTH IT. Hit the Target boo, trust me Que Bella is for you! Each packet gives you two uses (don’t forget to put it on your hands, they age too) que bella - Cooling Avocado Clay Mask THE BEST MASK EVER. This mask is seriously like butter 🧈 this was the mask my boyfriend got me for my birthday. It’s goes on so smoothly. The cooling effect is insane. My face was extremely soft after. If you are have red inflamed skin, then this mask is for you. This is super moisturizing as well. MAIN INGREDIENTS avocado oil 🥑, fine Oatmeal, coco butter, Shea butter, and menthol que bella - Pore Minimizing Mud Mask So this is the T-Zone mask or full facial. I only like to put it on my t-zone because it is pretty intense. If you get t-zone acne, then this is for you. If I see a place on my face where I feel like my pores are big, I’ll put it there as well! It’s just really draws out any impurities and absorbs excess oil. It does kinda burn, but I like it 😬 MAIN INGREDIENTS peppermint oil, nettle, zinc, rosemary, vitamin A, and iris que bella - Relaxing Lavender Mud Mask ohhh my lawd, this feels like I went and mixed butter and lavender flowers and then smeared it on my face. Sooo relaxing. This is my goto Self care Sunday mask. You will feel so refreshed and relaxed after. This is also suitable for vegans and is 96.4% naturally derived. MAIN INGREDIENTS lavender oil, seaweed extract, and Dead Sea mud powder que bella - Indulgent Rose Hip Oil Mud Face Mask 🌹 same as the lavender, you will feel like you have rose petals on your face. My face feels so soft after. I love this one so much. The smell is glorious. This also helps draw out impurities as well! If I have a sunburn, I love using this because of the aloe and green tea. MAIN INGREDIENTS aloe Vera, green tea extract, and organic rose hip oil TATCHA - Luminous Dewy Skin Sheet Mask I like that it has a lot of serum, the mask fits kinda big, but most sheet mask do. My face was definitely dewy after, probably due to how much serum was on the mask. Don’t get me wrong, I love the ingredients and it’s very rich in nutrients. Not worth the 💵 but if you have the 💴 go for it :) 💕 MAIN INGREDIENTS Blend of rice germ oil, high concentration of botanical oils, green tea, rice and algae.

FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask 🍯 I started off with the mini version of the @farmacybeauty honey potion mask and let me tell you, it was love at first use! I knew from the get-go that I was going to buy the full sized version. I made a first impression review of this mask months ago and my thoughts have remained the same. This continues to be my favourite wash off mask! It’s a mask that gives you spa-vibes. The mask magically warms up on your face as you massage the product until it turns from honey yellow to white. Your face is instantly soft, supple, and hydrated after using this mask. I highly highly highly recommend this mask!

Why I Hate Sheet Masks!
Why I Hate Sheet Masks!
Hi guys! Let’s talk about sheet masks.. peach slices - Sheet Mask Bundle: Hydration Notice the link I have says peach slices? That has so much fragrance:( Let’s start with.. They’re horrible for your skin! Sheet masks contain a lot of fragrance, parabens and alcohol, which is the worst for your face! But if they work for you, at least check the ingredient list that you can find on the back of the package. If you can, try to buy things without parabens. Yes, I know, you’re probably thinking “what’s wrong with parabens?” Parabens have so many ingredients inside that tries to keep things from getting old, but have you thought about what parabens can hold?! Avoid them as much as you can, for the sake of your skin!⚠️ If you are a skincare freak like me😂, you know not to use these because they can damage your skin as you get older. Make sure you know what your putting on your face!!🧼👍

This Modeling mask is suitable for hydrate skin. I have fun to prepare it, like playing with play-doh I feel my skin more soft and hydrate. But on forehead i have a lit breakout after using it i guess because T-Zone doesn’t like this make if you have combination skin while oily T-zone tho. 🌟🌟 I wouldn’t buy it again

First Aid Beauty Arnica Mask
First Aid Beauty Arnica Mask
First impressions: @firstaidbeauty arnica relief and rescue mask $32 for 3.4oz *bought this with my Sephora giftcard because I over-exfoliated the shit out of my face and I was desperate for relief. I was debating between a few masks for purchase but ultimately I trusted @firstaidbeauty to help me in this time of need as their formulation is allergy tested, safe for sensitive skin, and fragrance free. I was originally attracted to this mask as soon as I saw it hit the beauty sphere due to the key ingredients. I was especially hyped about arnica which has been medically studied for decreasing swelling and inflammation. Honestly all the ingredients are gold : Calendula, Centella Asiatica, Shea Butter, Coco Butter, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil, Aloe, Oatmeal, Licorice , Tumeric AND MORE. Texture and feel on face: weirdly I liken the texture to toothpaste (swipe for close up). I was a bit put off at first but I love how it literally soothes and cools when applied. Overall this has helped me get over the hump of increased inflammation from over-exfoliating. I will continue to use on my stressed skin throughout the winter, during travel, and after workouts.
