Skincare Products: Face Masks - Part 2 -

So this is part 2 of the Face Masks review...

My irritated red face loves this mask. When my skin reacts to something (a product, the weather, food etc.) and becomes sensitive and irritated, this mask helps soothe the redness and calm the irritation from just one application. It contains natural anti-inflammatory ingredients. It also helps calm my angry acne..

The formula is like a thick cream and it dose not dry on your face.. You leave it on for 20 minutes and after you wash it off, your face looks instantly less irritated and less red.. I pair this mask with Mario Badescu's Healing Cream which has also worked wonders on my skin when irritated..

I actually only have a sample of this which I have had for a while.. I've maybe used this 3-4 times and I can still get one more use from the sample.. Mario Badescu has the BEST customer service I've come across.. They're very kind and generous..

Anyway, for those of you who tend to get irritated from time to time for some reason, this is a great mask to have around..

Would I repurchase? For sure! I really adore this.

My skin is naughty sometimes and it just decides to breakout when it feels like it! That's when my trusty Drying Mask comes to the rescue.. Unlike the Healing & Soothing Mask, this does not work like magic.. It takes time as my breakouts are very stubborn.. I apply this thick brown smelly mask on affected areas only (my jaw line) and let it sit for 30-40mins before I wash it off.. As the name says, this sulfur based mask dries up your pimples without further irritation as it has some soothing ingredients in it as well which makes it is suitable for sensitive skin..

Would I repurchase? I would. I think it does help with my acne.. But you just have to be a little patient with it..

I can't not have a Lush face mask as I just simply adore Lush.. This is a clay mask with ground aduki beans and evening primrose seeds that help exfoliate your skin. So this is like a 2 in 1 mask. It cleanses your skin while you're waiting for it to dry and helps remove the dead skin when you begin to massage the mask off with water. This contains peppermint oil which is so refreshing..

I really like this mask.. My skin feels very clean and smooth after.. I would recommend it to everyone.. And the tub will last you a looong time.. We have one tub that the whole family uses =P

Would I repurchase? Without a doubt! And would also looove to try Lush's fresh masks. Haven't had a chance to check them out yet.

I got this before I ever discovered Mario Badescu and Lush.. 

This is meant to be a deep cleansing mask for acne-prone skin. It contains lemon tea tree oil and menthol which gives your skin that cooling effect. This isn't bad. But I've tried better. I don't think it did an amazing job with my blemishes.. It was just ok.

Would I repurchase? No. There are much better Masks out there.

I know not many people are familiar with Jan Marini but they have some really great products and this is one of them. Now this can fall under both Masks and Exfoliators as it's an exfoliating mask. It contains ingredients that help remove dead skin cells without aggravating the skin surface with exfoliating beads. This exfoliating mask also results in "dramatically accelerating" the process of skin rejuvenation, getting rid of acne, hyper-pigmentation and scar reduction. Many people claimed that after religiously using this, they do not need to go to their Botox session as this helps tighten and firm the skin. Now I can't claim that I felt any kind of firming or lifting as I am too young to have deep wrinkles or sagging skin to begin with.

This mask leaves my face brighter and cleaner. It's really great for all skin types, especially those suffering from active acne and from any kind of hyper-pigmintation because it exfoliates without those scrubby little beads.

Would I repurchase? For sure! I'll have this by my side forever!

Now on to my FAVOURITE mask so far.......

My relationship with this mask was love at first use! I got a sample of this at first which I got 4-5 applications out of and after using it just once, I knew I had to buy the full size. Never have I tried a mask for my pores where I saw results instantly! I'm not kidding. I wash this mask off after letting it sit for 20mins and my enlarged pores look tighter!!

This is clay mask deep cleanses and purifies your skin by gently getting rid of any impurities (oil, dirt, toxins) that sit on your skin and clog those pores. At the same time, because it contaitns Aloe Vera, it helps soothe, hydrate and protect sensitive skin.

I reccomend this to EVERYONE! Just go to Kiehl's and ask for a sample.. They're very generous with their samples.. Try it out and see for yourself and lemme know how it worked on your skin.. I'd love to hear your experience with this..

Oh and one more thing, this mask comes in a huge container which will last you a very long time.. And for the product you're getting, it's really not that pricey.

Would I repurchase? Seriously.. Need you ask?

And that's the end of my Face Mask Review..

I really do hope that this has helped you guys in some way and if you have any further questions about any of these products, please do not hesitate to lemme know.. I'd love to help you out in any way that I can..

Do tell if you've tried any of these products.. And please lemme know if you recommend any other face masks that you have tired..

I used to use Mask of Magnaminty when I was younger! I love the smell hehe
I'm thinking of treating myself to some new skincare products for my birthday, so I'm going to check out the Kiehls one. Thanks for the tip, great review!

Oh Lush's Lush Mask of Magnaminty sounds great! You should still try Catastrophe Cosmetic though. I think I want to try this one too though...

prettyinthedesert - My pleasure =)

Kelly - Yaaah I really wanbna try it!

Amina - I read reviews about the whole line and many people didn't really think that the cleanser, toner and moisturizer did anything for them.. So I just got a sample of them and they were nothing special.. The mask however blew me away..
