Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Hey ladies-

 

After starting yet another mask trying spree, it occurred to me that it might be a great idea to have one thread with our common knowledge of various masks in one place- a BT guide to masks if you'd like.  We have the swatch board for makeup, but nothing like that for skincare.

 

If you submit a mask, please include the following:

  • Name of mask
  • Type of mask (rinse-off, peel-off, etc)
  • What type of skin you have
  • Your experience with it
  • Do you recommend it? To whom?
  • And is there anything else a BTer should know?

I'll get started here in a minute...

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Name of Mask: Drink Up™ Intensive
Price/Availability: $16-23 at Origins.com
Type: OverNight wake up and rinse
My Skin: Dry and Flaky

My experience: I apply it before I go to bed and wake up with glowing skin. I use it about 3 times a week and my skin has never felt better.

Do you recommend? Yes

Who should use it?  anyone with dry skin

Anything else? It feels a little heavy at first. I also don't follow the instruction about wiping off excess, I just let it absorb in

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Name of mask: Queen Helene's Mint Julep Masque
Type of mask: Rinse-off. Clay-like texture.
Type of skin: Combination skin, w/ comedogenic acne and larger pores on cheeks and nose
My Experience with it:

This mask is kind of silly. It actually has no mint in it. Its ingredients are Water, Kaolin, Bentonite, Glycerin, Zinc Oxide, Propylene Glycol, Sulfur, Chromium Oxide Greens, Frangrance, Phenoxythanol, Methylparaben.

I have this mask because it's ridiculously cheep, but it has all of the ingredients that an acne-fighting, pore-tightening mask should have: clay (kaolin and bentonite), zinc oxide and sulfur. If you like the full experience of a mask, it smells like mint, which is scrumptious Smiley Happy

I use this mask when my pores feel saggy or if I'm ovulating or something and my skin hates me. Otherwise, I usually don't feel the need to use it, as many of its active ingredients are drying.

Do you recommend it?: Yes, certainly.

To whom: If you're looking for a cheaper version ($5 range) of any acne mask you love, and if you're hunting for a mask to deal with regular or sudden break outs, this is for you.

 

Other things to know: Though they don't have this at Sephora, it's a pretty well known cult mask, and the whole Queen Helene line is really fun. You can get this pretty much anywhere.swfupload_8980622225217476296.jpg


 

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

My mom and I love this mask for the price! I never even realized it didn't have mint in it lol

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

same lol, i love this mask as well it lasts a really long time too

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Ya it's true! I don't use this regularly, but I've been on the same tube for a year now...

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

I was wondering the same thing.  Maybe the facial system is more concentrated?  It does seem pretty similar.

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Maybe it's meant to just be a bigger size since the system is only .5 oz. Thats one reason i didn't care to purchase. If a mask doesn't come in at least a 1 oz size it just i kind of a rip off in my opinion since you barely get any uses out of it. But the new one is something i am interested in. I'm planing to the the 100 point perk i have and if i like it i will be putting the new mask in my Loves!

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

The clay double detox exfoliating facial mask.  There are no reviews posted yet. 

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

 It does look interesting. But it also seems incredibly similar to the double detox facial system. The listed ingredients are the exact same. I have a 100 point perk of the facial system i've yet to try but i wonder if they are meant to be the same. 

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

I see that Tarte has a new face mask.  It looks intriguing.  I've been very impressed with all the Tarte products I have used so far.  Plus face masks are so fun to try.  Has anyone tried it?

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Are you referring to the Double Detox facial system mask? Or the Double Detox exfoliating Facial mask. 

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask

Type of mask: Rinse Off

 

Skin Type: Oily/Acne Prone but dehydrated

 

Your experience with it: Love it! Best clarifying mask I've used because it does a really good job of removing blackheads and treating spots, but doesn't leave your face feeling dry or tight. It works best on a just cleaned face.

 

Do you recommend it? To whom?: I absolutely recommend it; website says not for sensitive skin.

 

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Mask/peel: Amore Pacific Treatment Enzyme Peel

Type: Rinse off

Skin type: 36 yo combination with occasional hormonal breakouts

Experience: leaves skin very clean and visibly reduced pores and lines

Recommended for: anyone who wants a quick and effect peel that leaves skin brighter tough pores tightened

 

I have some mild acne scarring (pick ax, looks like big pores) and oiliness in my T-zone. I have been trying out a variety of masks and peels, and so far this has given me the best results in terms of diminishing the look of my scars and pores. 

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Mask -Origins Active Charcoal Mask

Type- Rinse off 

Skin- Oily/Normal Combo

Exp.- my experience was okay actually, i received this as a hundred point perk and liked it alot, it does make my actual skin feel very clean and my pores appear smaller after use. 

Recommend- Yes, to people who wear alot of makeup during the week and want a sort of weekly or bi weekly deep clean, this is for you.. 

 

Other- the only thing that kinda bothers me about this mask is that if i leave it on for longer then 10 mins and it completely burns my face, for some reason it feels really hot and it feels like it burned me, Also that its extremely difficult to take off and remove from wash clothes and towels. it stained a couple of mine. 

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

This one is my current favorite. My breakouts disappear a lot faster when I use it regularly.

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

I've had the same experience with it. And it isn't that ahh this a good clean fresh "burn" it's more like this is not charcoal it's  lava get it off now. My skin is red after I use it. I guess it does take out everything though. Did not repurchase. 

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Woah! It burns your face! That sounds terrible!

I have this mask as well and I don't really use it that often. It definitely minimizes the size of pores temporarily, but I really don't think it does what it's supposed to, which is to actually lift things out of pores. It's about as good as any clay-based mask.

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

excally, and i really don't like that fact that it burns me, its pretty painful, but maybe its just my skin being sensative

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Name: First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask

Type: Rinse off

Skin Type: Dry, large pores, blackheads on nose, sometimes sensitive

Experience: I use this at least once a week, sometimes more if my skin is flaking or I've done an exfoliating treatment. After the first use I noticed my skin was more hydrated and appeared smoother. Also, any time I have had breakouts, the following day any redness virtually disappeared and the pimples were noticeably smaller. The reason I love this product is because it really helps combat my skin's dryness and it is incredibly soothing.

Yes! Definitely recommend it to anyone with dry, sensitive skin. Also, the main ingredient is oatmeal so for any eczema sufferers this stuff works wonders!

 

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Like the others I had been hoping someone would post about this one.  I think it may be my saving grace this winter.  

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

This was one I have been wanting soo bad! And know I think I must get it!
