Facial Mask Reviews
I’m a massive DHC skincare fan and I also happen to be quite a fan of facial sheet masks. Recently the DHC Alpha-Arbutin White Mask ($4.50) launched and I was quite excited to give it a whirl. This is a newly formulated mask as DHC has offered an Arbutin sheet mask in the past.
It’s formulated with a great concentration of alpha-arbutin which is a stable brightening ingredient that treats dark spots and uneven skin tone. The thing is, I’ve found, you need a lot of patience with arbutin. It works to brighten but it’s something you have to diligently use in your daily skincare diet to see results.
Ok, new favorite product Iroha Sensual Day Moisturizing Mask! Chocolate, shea butter, need I say more? I had a complete snow day decadence day yesterday and part of it was spent on my couch, wet hair in a towel with Lush Marilyn smeared up all in it (don’t ask…long story about my history with Marilyn), this Iroha Sensual Day Moisturizing Mask on my face, and Assassin’s Creed 4 on my TV (I haven’t technically grown of the idea that I want to be a pirate when I grow up)!
It was hard but I swear I didn’t dip pretzels or anything on my face while I wore the mask because no matter how good it smelled I wasn’t sure eating my facial mask would be a good idea.
Manuka Doctor Apinourish Rejuvenating Face Mask ($85) recently launched at Sephora and just in time for the Winter weather. That’s right, Winter feels really close now. I woke up this morning, showered, dressed, stepped out of my door and the cold hit me right in the face. Brrrr!
You know what that means right?
Flakes, dullness, patchy dry areas….you know the drill and if you already have dry skin you’re probably preparing yourself for the cold weather and stocking up on products that will keep your skin as hydrated as possible.
Manuka Doctor Apinourish Rejuvenating Face Mask restores much needed moisture, tones skin, and renews your entire face in a single application.
Take a peek!
Freeman has a new collection of Feeling Beautiful Facial Paper Masks available one of which I tried a few weeks ago in the the Beautiful Rose Brightening formula.
Freeman Feeling Beautiful Rose Brightening Facial Paper Mask ($1.99) contains rose extract and a brightening Vitamin C that aids dull skin to look brighter. It also includes Lactic and Glycolic alpha hydroxy acids to exfoliate and reveal smoother skin with White Tea and Licorice antioxidants help reduce age spots for more even-toned skin.
Considering I have drier skin this sounded like the perfect mask for me!
Freeman Star Fruit Purifying Facial Paper Mask ($1.99) is one of three new facial sheet masks that were recently introduced to the permanent line of Freeman Skincare products. You might recall I already reviewed the Blue Agave formula of these masks.
Although the Star Fruit formula isn’t for my skin type I decided to give it a whirl anyway and give you a few thoughts about it.
