It’s been unusually warm around these parts. Honestly, it doesn’t feel like Christmas because of this crazy weather but more like Spring.
But hey, there was a day or two where the moisture was completely sucked out of my skin and the bite of cold in the weather made me go “Brrrr!’ and shake my entire body like a little penguin.
I suspect more of those days are on the horizon that’s why I’ve been stocking up on facial sheet masks. It’s one of my top picks for keeping my skin looking less than dull and extra hydrated in the cold weather.
Let’s take a peek at Princess Carnival Provence Lavender Relaxing Mask.
IsqQueen makes a collection of facial sheet masks that cutesy and sweet and along the same lines of My Beauty Diary which is entitled Princess Carnival.
Of course, you guessed it, I hauled boxes of these masks because of the cute packaging but I’ve actually really come to love these masks since they not only contain the facial mask but an extra packet of essence which you use before and after mask application.
If you’ve never used an Asian Facial Sheet Mask before they are fairly easy to apply. Each mask has cut outs for your eyes, lips, and nose. The masks are made of cotton fiber, soaked in essence or lotion (good masks are heavily saturated with product and have a “wet” feel), and are meant to be worn for 10-30 minutes.
This formula is made of a relaxing lavender which is supposed to purify skin and relieve stressed out, tired skin. They recommend it for using after being out in the sun as well to restore vitality to lackluster skin.
The masks are packaged individually and each has a small pouch attached to it that contains extra olive serum essence. Simply tear open the serum packet and apply half to your face and follow up with the mask. Now leave it on for 15-20 minutes…I cheat and sometimes leave it on longer. After they recommend rinsing with water but I skip this step and apply the remaining serum from the packet.
They have a rather strong lavender scent which is supposed to relax you as you wear the mask but it could prove irritating if you’re sensitive to fragrance in your skincare. Outside of moisturizing my face extremely well I didn’t notice much difference in my duller, tired skin but I’m grateful for as much moisture as I can get and these definitely hydrated skin well.
I highly suggest checking out the Princess Carnival Collection. Sometimes the mask tear easily but overall the extra essence packet is the key selling point for me and offers a way to get even more moisture from each mask you use.
You can purchase these in a five box set in and around the Internet for around $9.99-$15.
