colour me disappointed...🙄
masQueB·A·R - Anti Imperfection Mud Mask Today, I am going to review Masque Bar’s Anti Blemish-Prone Mud Mask. Brand claims: ”Soothes irritated skin and bumps while helping absorb excess oil. Non-drying formulation purifies and balances the complexion, leaving skin feeling calm and looking clearer.” Popular/important ingredients are: Tea Tree, Kaolin, Vitamin A MY EXPERIENCE: I absolutely hate this mask, and would give it ZERO STARS if that was possible. I purchased it from my local drugstore when this product was discontinued as store level and thought I would give it a try as I am an oily-complexioned girl with some mild acne. I have very resilient skin that is by no means sensitive, yet taking a look at the third photo might lead you to believe otherwise. The mask claims to be “non-drying” but while wearing it, it not only dried out my skin but had a frightening burning sensation. When I went to remove with warm water, I was horribly shocked at how sensitive this mask made my skin and how red it made my complexion. It also (temporary, thank goodness) made my pre-existing pimples appear redder and more inflamed. FORTUNATELY, I will note that this particular mask was not the source of a breakout, and I am just assuming the ingredients and incredibly dry nature of the formula just really severely irritated my skin. However, this mask did not in shrinking or healing my pre-existing acne. All this mask did was make my skin tingle in an uncomfortable way then make it super-sensitive and super-red. And oh, did absolutely nothing for my acne which was the mask’s sole purpose. It BAFFLES me that this mask states on the package that it is intended for troubled skin, then made my skin troubled!!!!!! I still have two of these and plan on destroying them.

My favorite hydrating ingredient- Hyaluronic Acid ✨ First of all why is it called an acid if its meant to be a hydrating molecule? Its just a matter of chemistry- theres so many hydrogen atoms in HA that when it dissolves in water, the hydogren dissociates and the resulting solution has an excess of H+ atoms, making the solution more acidic 🧪 This amazing molecule holds 1000x its weight in water, helping your skin absorb and retain moisture thereby keeping your skin nice and #hydrated. It also helps repair the skin barrier from any damage- ie. Trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL). TEWL is when there isn’t enough moisture in your skin, that the moisture is drawn from the dermis to the epidermis and evaporates off the skin surface. This further dehydrates your skin, as well as disrupts your skin barrier function. You need products that hold moisture, and lock it in like hyaluronic acid and a good moisturizer to protect your skin further. And finally, it can even help with plumping the skin, also benefiting as an anti-aging ingredient ✨ I love have my HA in a serum because I believe it is delivered better with a thinner texture, but you can definitely find it in moisturizing creams as well, and even in most masks! .

Budget Friendly-Hydrating Sheet Masks under $10
I have combo oily skin that I’m trying currently trying to deal with some breakouts, so I’ve been focusing on hydrating my skin and not be overly stripping and give my skin the nourishment it needs to speed up the healing and recovery process. Here are some hydrating sheet masks that I’ve been loving to help treat and hydrate my skin to give it the extra hydration it needs. I enjoy using them whenever my skin is extra dry, after I exfoliate, or whenever my skin is breaking out. I like using sheet masks during these periods because I find that I get an immediate relief from the dryness and delivers a hydrating and calming effect to my skin. I like using sheet masks after I tone and use essence, but before I use moisturizer . I’ve been keeping my routine really simple for the most part and treating my skin with sheet masks. I’ve gotten most of these sheet masks as a gift with purchase, but purchased a set of the LapCos masks at Costco. The FORMULA 10.0.6 - Soak Your Face Intensive Hydrating Full Face Sheet Mask has a thicker material and not as much essence, but still delivers a great dose of hydration. A 3-pack costs $7.49 at Ulta. The LAPCOS - Daily Skin Mask Aqua is a thin material that easily molds to the skin and is drenched in essence, with plenty leftover for after you remove the mask. It does have a slight fragrance, but doesn’t bother me. It also leaves my skin pretty sticky/tacky until the next morning (use them at night followed with moisturizer) when I wash my face, but worth it because my skin feels so hydrated and plump. A single mask can be purchase at Fashion Nova currently for under $2 (on sale for $1.98, normally $2.99). I’ve seen multi-packs with just the one type of mask or one that includes a variety of masks inside, but they’re over $10. The masQueB·A·R - Holiday Pretty Animalz Polar Bear Sheet Mask doesn’t have the best fit, the mask was hydrating and didn’t leave a sticky or tacky feeling behind. The cute design was fun and would be fun to do with friends in various prints!

Worst Eye Patches Ever
I dont know if I got an expired product or they are just made this badly, but these Masque Bar eye patches were literally DRY with adhesive on one side. I kid you not. No moisture, no essence, NONE. I tried 3 sets of eye patches and they were all the same. Waste of 5 dollars. Do not buy these!

MasqueBar Puppy Pore Control [not listed]
MasqueBar Puppy Pore Control [not listed]
The Product: MasqueBar Animalz Puppy Pore Control Sheet Mask Rating: 5/5, partially for the novelty of it Ingredients: Grapefruit/Lime/Honeysuckle Extract Benefits: Oil reducing and pore shrinking active ingredients reduce shine and pore visibility. Also, the mask is a dog so you can laugh at yourself for 20 min Results: I didnt include a picture of me in this sheet mask because its best left a surprise. you will not be as cute as a puppy, or even cute... mostly terrifying! i liked the tingly feeling of this mask and the glow it left me with afterwards. I felt that my skin was a bit tighter and my pores less gaping. Price: less than $4... totally worth it for the benefits and the terrible puppy pictures!

🍄 a mask off 🍄 the product matchup masQueB·A·R - PRETTY Animalz vs. The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution 🍄 the winner: The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution - more uses per bottle - incredibly potent formula 🍄 The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution You’ve seen it everywhere for good reason. its expensive, easy to use and super powerful. My friends who have borrowed it buy it for themselves. You feel it working and are left with soft and smooth skin in the morning. dark spots disappear faster and pores diminish immediately after. Yes it burns a but, but super yes! it works! 🍄 MasqueBAR Pretty Animals Puppy Pore Control with grapefruit, lime and pineapple extract, this single use sheet mask has is gentle and brightening. Pores appear a little tightened, and the novelty of a doggy mask is kinda fun and terrifying at the same time. At $4 a pop, its much less of a deal than the ordinary. Its much gentler though, especially if you have sensitive skin.
