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

There are tons of recipes online for a DIY peel off mask, those usually come off quite nicely, though they don't grab the crud from your pores so much. They usually involve egg whites and gelatin, and I've made one that had green tea and lemon juice in it too, it smelled really nice and worked well for lifting away some dead skin and leaving behind soft, bright skin underneath. Smiley Happy If you are interested in peel off masks it could be a place to start, they are nowhere near as sticky to your face as the Boscia ones!

Now I want to try the white bottle glam glow (darn that this one doesn't have a mini size!) sorry wonky iPad won't let me edit comments

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

I *LOVE* Asian sheet masks, especially My Diary Beauty ones. The Apple Polyphenol mask especially minimizes my pores while keeping my oil at bay. I would say I'm combination, moreso on the side of oily. Plus, they're quite inexpensive, at about $15 for a box of 10 or so Smiley Happy. I always put one on for about 30 minutes after exfoliating once every 3-4 days, and it just leaves my skin feeling hydrated, not to mention more brightening the next couple of days! It pretty much acts as a nighttime sleeping mask, since I don't rinse off the essence after I remove the mask. They have a variety of masks geared towards your specific needs. I also recommend the Black Caviar mask for those days when my skin is feeling dull and I need a quick pick me up.

Name of Mask: Origins Drink up 10 minutes Mask
Price/Availability: $23, At Sephora

Do you recommend? Sooo recommend this!
Who should use it? Dry to very dry skin types!

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Hmmm.... now I want to try this one!  I'm such a mask junkie, I have a few more to add to the thread.

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

You should try it! I have a ton more to add! 

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Do you have the overnight intensive version? It's amazing!

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Now I'm curious about it. I need something cheap and hydrating for overnight!!!

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Name of Mask: Ren Gylcol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask

Price/Availability: $55, Sephora

Type: Rinse-off

My skin: combo-extremely oily t-zone, combo part of skin can get very dry and flaky from retinols etc, some redness

My experience: I got three samples of this when I broke up a few orders a while back. Surprisingly I am on my second mini bottle and each bottle has gotten at least 3-4 masks. As for the mask... its alright. Smells like oranges. I have a full size Ole Henriksen blue/black berry enzyme mask so I don't really need 2 exfoliating masks so due to the price I probably won't invest in the full size. I don't notice any huge noticeable differences with this one and it's not quite as enjoyable for me to wear as the blue/black berry (lavender scented) mask.

Do you recommend? No, there are cheaper exfoliating/resurfacing masks out there that work just as good or better.

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

I'm going to agree on this. I got 3 samples of it as well Lol. I i'm not seeing what is so wonderful about it. I like the smell! But i don't see any benefits. Maybe it helps brighten...
