The Best Face Masks

 

the-best-face-mask-recovered

To say I overbooked myself for the month of September would be a complete understatement! I am not usually so on the go, in terms of actually traveling places.  After being in different cities, airports and dealing with outside pollutants and a severe lack of sleep and let’s be honest, since I’ve been traveling I definitely haven’t been eating as healthy as I should.  My skin has taken a beating so I’ve been trying to take care of it the best I can so I’ve been trying new mask this past month and y’all, I’ve found some great ones that I couldn’t wait to share! I’ve actually tried and used all of these mask I’m going to share with y’all today! Also, I have oily skin, just to let you know ahead of time so you’ll know how to interpret my results.  Sharing beauty on the blog is still so new (this is only my 2nd post) skin care is something in the beauty world that I totally feel some what like a pro talking about.  Makeup is still scary to me since I don’t wear makeup everyday, skin care is something I take serious.

Intense Snail Hydro Mask from Tony Moly // $8 

Warning, this mask is a gel and feels super slimy- hence it’s made from snail mucous.  I promise if you can block out the fact that it’s snail you’ll love it.  Despite it being a gel and slimy it was super lightweight and did not leave my skin feeling greasy afterwards. My skin felt so smooth, soothed and looked radiant.  This ones would feel amazing if you put it in the fridge a little before you put it on!

Now that I’ve tried this mask I’m super excited to try more of Tony Moly’s products, my sister swears by them and y’all the packaging on some of them is so cute! Check them out!

Alba Botanica Deep Sea Mask // $8

I mentioned this mask in my daily skin care routine post, it’s kind of like my ride or die mask.  I use it at least once a week.  It’s a clay mask that I’ll put on after I wash my face at night just to give my skin a little refresher.  It smells great and doesn’t over-dry my skin.

Best part about this one besides it being under $10 is that you can pick it up at Target!

Ole Henriksen Truth Sugar Glow Polishing Mask // $42

I also mentioned this one in my previous skin care post, it was one I received as a sample but ended up loving it so much that I bought a full size.  It smells amazing-like baked cookies! It’s an exfoliating mask, its not too rough but if you have super sensitive skin take that it to consideration.  I’m obsessed with the whole Ole Henriksen skin care line but incase you’ve never heard of the brand this is the perfect introduction to it.  Some mask work best on damp clean skin, this one needs to be on dry, clean skin.  My skin is left feeling so soft and brightened.  Also, if you’re looking for a great way to boost your skins radiance try this vitamin C oil, it comes out orange but once it absorbs you totally can’t tell, I promise!

Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask // $58

With fall right around the corner this mask is THE mask you want to wear – it smells just like pumpkin pie! As soon as I put it on I made Brian smell my face, haha! My face was left feeling soft & radiant.

If the price makes you nervous, always ask someone at Sephora or Ulta if you can try a little sample or I found this sample pack that let’s you try a few of Peter Thomas Roth’s mask, it’s such a great deal for travel sizes or if you aren’t sure which ones you love.

Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud // $58

I haven’t tried the Glam Glow mud mask which I’ve heard amazing thinking about but this mud mask is hands down the best one I’ve found! I literally feel my face being detoxified when I wear it.  It’s like the juice cleanse for your face.  Bye, bye dirt and germs!

If the price scares you & you’re unsure if it really is THE best mud mask, ask for a sample or snag the sample pack!

Ok so clearly I am a fan of PTR products.  Here’s the thing, when a products does what it says it’ll do…. times a 10 you know you’ve found a winner.  This gold mask is the most expensive mask I own but it’s the holy grail of face mask….at least the holy grail within my budget.  This mask works on anti aging and fine lines, giving you a youthful appearance and radiant glow.

Yes the price is steep but it works so in my opinion it’s totally worth it. My advice is buy the sample pack that way you can try this mask multiple times so you can see for yourself just how amazing it is! It works great and is still way under the price of some of the other top anti aging mask….and this one has gold in it, hello who doesn’t want to feel fancy!

Sephora Pearl Eye Mask // $5

This was a total impulse buy and the first sheet mask (it’s only for the under eyes) I ever tried.  I was in Sephora picking up a few things and decided to try one the many mask offered by the Sephora line.  I have terrible insomnia and tend not to get enough sleep so my under-eyes are always a concern for me.  I use this eye cream from Origins in the morning that I keep in the fridge so it’s not an refreshing to help wake up my tired eyes.

This mask amazed me at how well it worked.  Not only did it feel refreshing while it was on but as soon as I took it off I notice a different, my under-eyes were brighter and my bags we’re less noticeable.

After trying the eye mask I ventured into trying more of the full sheet mask from Sephora and haven’t been disappointed!

MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator // $ 30

This isn’t exactly a mask in the same sense that all the others I’ve mentioned are; letting them sit for a set amount of time but it’s close enough so I had to share in case you’re in the market.  I usually don’t use an exfoliator by itself, I either have it in my daily cleanser or in a mask but my sister let me try hers and after I was hooked.  It’s one of the gentler exfoliators on the market and left my skin feeling so clean and soft without over-drying and irritating.  It’s from MAC so you know it’s good, I mean who’s ever had anything bad from MAC?

If the price makes you hesitate, don’t forget to ask for a sample!

Please let me know if you’ve tried any of these I’ve listed and let me know what you think & if you have any I haven’t mentioned let me know, I would love to try out some new products!

I’m getting ready to head out on a cruise to Mexico so I already have this cucumber mask & this blue algae mask I got for my birthday in my fridge waiting for me to come home to to put on my sun kissed skin!
