Today I wanted to feature osea’s gorgeous white algae mask . The company is vegan, cruelty free, US made and family owned. . This aims to intensely brighten and plump the skin using white marine algae, white tea, resveratrol, hyaluronic acid, and mineral peptides. All in all, it is extremely antioxidant and moisture-rich. . This mask felt extremely nourishing, gentle, and mildly exfoliating, which was surprising! It doesn’t dry down, so your skin will always feel balanced. There is also no added fragrance, just a delicate organic scent. I used this as a wash off mask after 20 minutes, but it can be used overnight as a brightening treatment! . I’m so interested in more of their line - they have a wide variety for all skin types.

Using my favorite mask at the moment from clarks botanicals ! It’s the Intense Radiance Mask and my skin has been loving it lately. It doesn’t strip your skin or make it feel tight but does a great job drawing out impurities. Leaves my complexion radiant and fresh. Obsessed doesn’t begin to describe how much I love it. . .
I love wash-off masks but don't have any other than the Honey mask for use during winters because most of the masks that I have are clay based. These three sounded perfect. I've tried the Ginseng mask twice. .. Like all I'm from products, the Ginseng mask is in a glass jar. I love their packaging, the boxes are designed with minute details that showcase the key ingredient in the product. With the star ingredient in this being Ginseng, this mask claims to clarify your skin by flushing your pores and thus giving your skin a youthful glow. Ginseng used in this mask is from Geumsan County in Korea which is home to a species of Korean ginseng that has a history of 1,500 years. It is an anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and stimulant that boosts blood flow and is great at brightening dull, aging skin and the one used in this mask is the purest, highest quality of ginseng extract. The mask also features Ginseng seed oil, Licorice root extract, Hyaluronic acid, and other hanbang extracts .. I was prepared for a natural funky Gingseng scent but on opening the jar, what hit me was an artificial strong floral scent. The honey-like texture in the jar looked beautiful and inviting (swipe for a texture shot) but the scent did not let me appreciate it. I used the spatula that comes with the jar to get some of it out and applied a layer of it. Instructions recommend massaging it in for 8-10 minutes. As you massage, the ginseng in the mask delivers heat to your skin, the warming sensation is comforting and relaxing. I let the mask stay on for another 5 minutes before I washed it off. Unlike the Honey mask, rinsing this off was easy. The mask left my skin looking fresh, bright and energized .. When I take time to mask, I want those few minutes to help me unwind
Yesterday, I posted a texture of Althea’s Milk Peel Cream Mask. As I mentioned, it has Milk Protein, AHA /BHA, and Kaolin which all help in detoxifying and gently exfoliating the skin. When I first used this I didn’t expect it to bubble! I find it gentle enough to be used daily however, I usually exfoliate every other day or twice a week depending on what my skin needs. I’d use this whenever I feel like I need a quick and fun exfoliation night. My skin would look brighter and smoother after use. It doesn’t leave it too tight or dry and I didn’t experience any breakout or irritation. The texture is really fascinating, it goes from whipped creamy clay to a bubbly foam. I really enjoy the whole process! Haha For the scent, there’s perfume on the ingredient list. I’m not too bothered by it ~ I actually like the milky powdery scent. It reminds me of my days as a baby ahaha. I love how affordable and easy this is to use!
my holy grail face mask whenever my skin needs a little clarifying. This mask goes on so nicely and almost has a cooling effect. After 10 minutes, add water and gently exfoliate in circular motions and then rinse completely and you have glowing skin! Can’t live without this stuff✨
The Sekkisei Clear Whitening Mask is a black peel-off mask (similar to the Boscia charcoal mask, if you've tried it). I don't use peel-off masks all that often because I've experienced ones that hurt REALLY bad when you peel them off, and I don't think that's healthy for your skin. However, the Sekkisei one is quickly becoming my favorite because it seems to peel off quite easily and without undue tugging on the skin (gotta keep my limited stores of collagen intact, lol). I didn't notice that this mask pulled anything out of my pores, but it did leave my skin feeling soft and exfoliated. Others have mentioned that they thought this mask had pore-clearing abilities, but I haven't found that to be the case personally. This has a variety of herbal extracts in it like Job's Tears extract, red oolong tea, and other anti-inflammatory and antioxidant extracts. It has a slightly medicinal, slightly alcohol-y scent, but no strong fragrance. I will say that like the other products in the Sekkisei range, it seems to be quite high in alcohol, so if you have dry or very dehydrated skin, this may not be the product for you.
My dehydration lines on my forehead were frightening this morning, frightening I tell you! So I decided to slap on a morning mask and chose the Mediheal abalone mask in accordance with today's maskmadness challenge "Sea" with maskaddict and mapletreeblog. It's a soft cotton mask with a milky essence (yay I love me a milky essence!). It's got some copper peptides in there and hopefully they help a bit with these fine lines! Sure enough after 20 min the lines were plumped out and skin significantly brighter. I definitely need to grab a few more of these!
