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

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!

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.

-Boots Botanic Conditioning Clay Mask

-Rinse-off
-Oily, Acne prone
I do feel that the mask is clarifying and conditioning my skin. After the mask has dried, I can definitely see where oil has been pulled up from my pores and boy, is that ever satisfying.(IM SORRY FOR THE TMI IN ADVANCE) With this mask I literally see the dots, and sometimes (alarming) huge pools of oil that this mask draws out. The pores on my nose are cleaner than they have ever been as an adult, though I don't believe they are any smaller than they were. After I rinse this mask, my skin isn't sucked parching dry. My skin is left "dried" out to normal oil levels, and calmed.
 It hasn't cured my acne, nothing that rinses away will do that, but it has definitely helped. This product last forever, only con I do not like the smell but it doesn't burn. For it's price, around 8$, not bad.
I have tried the Orgins Active charcoal mask, Queen Helene mint, and The Aztec I like the Boots better

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

All of them work wonderful, they're organic with natural ingredients. And the prices are pretty affordable because they're on sale most of the time, I get all off them at 50% off.

Honestly, I'd not spend more than $20 on masks.
