I bought teamí - Green Tea Blend Detox Mask
because I was looking to try an chemical exfoliating mask that would not irritate my skin as every other mask has done. I was still hoping! Sensitive skin people, rejoice! I had a little tingling for about 15 seconds and then I was able to keep the mask on the entire time until it dried. It was easy to wash off and let me tell you I glowed the next day. It is two days later and my skin still feels smoother, brighter, and less gunky. I have never been able to use a mask before without having a horrible rash or a terrible burning or damaging my moisture barrier. I also like that it uses matcha and lemongrass to do it’s thing and it is free of a lot of icky stuff and stuff I can’t tolerate. Swipe to see my skin without makeup!!! It’s that wonderful Anyway, enough gushing. Go forth and buy and shine bright like a diamond. 💎

Favorite Masks and textures for Maskne
I love textures.... I believe textures and feel of skincare product matter equally when it comes to using a product consistently. If you don't enjoy some textures and feel of one product you wouldn't use it for long time, leading it to not giving you any visible changes to skin. These are some of my favorite textures and masks /moisturizers for keeping Mask Acne (Maskne) at Bay! These are mostly pore refining, oil reducing and probiotic enriched products that will help your skin prevent acne caused by masks! Although, there's one ingredient missing in these is Salicylic acid (BHA) . Add BHA in your routine for clearing out congested pores and breakouts.

Welcome To The Mask-erade
First: I have dry/combination skin that is very very reactive. I’ve been looking for a good mask for ages and have had a lot of struggles. All of these masks are fragrance free and four of them are vegan. DR ROEBUCK'S - ULURU Thin, didn’t do anything and unfortunately I waited too long to try it and can’t even return it now. There went US$28. Also gave me ‘brownface’ which is one of my mask pet peeves. Follain - Ultra Hydrating Mask: Restore + Soften Moisturizing but it sat on my skin all night and never absorbed. Good consistency but slightly greasy. I tried it three times and washed it off in the middle of the night because I couldn’t stand the feeling every time. COSRX - Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask I have used this a couple times. Nice consistency that is easy to apply, absorbs well, no smell. I just haven’t seen any results yet. teamí - Green Tea Blend Detox Mask Really thick and kinda hard to spread. A little tingly at first but then it fades. Gives me Rihanna-esque skin and a glow that lasts three days but is VERY drying for my skin type. I rec it but be prepared to moisturize after. Like three times with you heaviest moisturizer. onekind - Pore-fectionist Refining Facial A great medium consistency that is very easily spread. Barely a tingle but it fades quickly. Gives a nice, low key glow and doesn’t require as much post-mask moisturizer as the teami. I got a sample from the brand but my impressions are my own. Will definitely be purchasing a full size. Last pic is me post-mask without any makeup. Hope this helps you to clean out your pores and get your glow on!

A SKIN TEXTURE MIRACLE 💁🏾‍♀️
A SKIN TEXTURE MIRACLE 💁🏾‍♀️
The Krisana Vigas Radiance Facial Mask has really improved my skins texture! It is a clay mask made with green and white clays. Initially when I put it on it burns a little so I would not recommend this to someone with super sensitive skin. The tingling/burning sensation lasts for about a minute. It takes about 10 mins to dry. Immediately when washing it off my skin looks brighter and after using it a couple of weeks I have seen significant improvements to my skins texture. My pores are less visible, my skin feels smoother and any dry patches I had are gone. It soaks up the oil from my skin and I like to use it on days when I’m wearing makeup because my skin gets less oily throughout the day it tightens my pores and helps my foundation to glide on. It’s also made from natural ingredients which is a plus. This product is $35 and I think it’s worth the price.

🍫 What does it do? This mask helps Brighten and even skin tone. It deeply detoxing and cleanses with clays to fight blemishes. Soothes inflammation and redness over time and leaves your skin radiant and clear. 🍫 My experience: I have to say I was extremely excited to try this mask because it has cacao and ya know.. your girl loves chocolate. But seriously I was very curious to try this because it has Salicylic Acid and Ginseng. I tried this mask twice, and honestly I was super upset at myself because I got an Allergic reaction. My eyes started to water at both times that I tried it.. so possibly I’m allergic to something in the formula but I did see many people try this mask and absolutely love it which is another reason why I wanted to try it. I do have to thank @herbaldynamicsbeauty to be so amazing and kind to send this product over. Over all it’s such an amazing mask.. I love the formula, it’s nice and Thiccc and it literally smells like chocolate but it didn’t work for me unfortunately. Herbal Dynamics Beauty - CACAO & CHAMOMILE CLEARING CLAY MASK

Most Versatile Mask I’ve Ever Used!
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

Best Mask for Oily/Combo Skin Brightening 🧡
Best Mask for Oily/Combo Skin Brightening 🧡
Georgette Klinger 10 Day Radiance Challenge 🍊 Thank you Cherie and Georgette Klinger for gifting me their entire Vitamin C line in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are, and were encouraged to be, completely honest and my own. The GEORGETTE KLINGER - Vitamin C Mask is a clay mask that contains bentonite clay, kaolin clay, and vitamin C. Georgette Klinger claims this mask will brighten and even out the complexion as it protects the skin from free radical damage and draws out impurities. They say it’s for all skin types but I personally think this is more geared towards my oily or combo friends. The mask is your typical mud mask constancy. I usually cleanse my skin and then go into this mask twice a week. I smooth it on and let it do it’s work for about 15 minutes. It is one of those masks that will dry down and tend to feel uncomfortable if you move your face around so I recommend this as a lay down and relax kind of mask. It has a strawberry orange creamsicle smell that isn’t over powering. While it’s on I don’t experience any issues while it dries down but when I do wash it off my skin can feel a little bit tight (because of the kaolin and bentonite). As long as I go in with hydrating ingredients afterwards I’m fine but be aware of this when purchasing. I did experience the beginning of some post acne hyperpigmentation fading while using this twice a week. It did a good job as taking away some of the excess oils from my skin and it always looked good afterwards so I’m calling this one a win. For $36 you get 1.7 oz and a pump and a half covers my whole face so it will last you a while. I will say it’s hard to see in the photos (all taken at the same time 5 days a part from each other) but I do see a slight difference in the hyper pigmentation I do have. My skin does look a little brighter and even which I’m happy about. The only issue I came across was my face is a little more red than usual. I do naturally have some redness in my skin and I was using niacinamide to treat that and while doing this trial I decided to not use it so I’m assuming it’s from that. Despite the redness I did not experience any irritation from this product. Oddly enough as well I think the products did have a positive effect on my pores. The more I looked in the mirror they looked slightly better to me. I believe with longer use of the whole line I would definitely see better results. Overall I am happy with my results despite the redness (which I’m going to reintroduce the niacinamide back into my routine and see if it goes away)
