Skin Food Real Honey Sugar Topping Mask Review and Swatches

Skin Food Real Honey Sugar Topping Mask ($6.98) is one of four different brilliant little mask add-ons that revitalizes and hydrated drier, duller skin. This particular formula contains mature acacia honey which apparently is ideal for acne scarring or for anyone suffering from acne. I personally don’t have issues with acne but I purchased this formula for the moisture factor as I have drier, duller skin.

Now the joy of this mask is the fact it can be used as a mix-in or add on to your current favorite Skin Food Mask. Yes, it works fine all its own should you like to use it that way but I personally think it works best as an add-on.

Let’s check it out!

Skin Food Real Honey Sugar Topping Mask arrives in a tiny bottle that holds 1.69 oz of product. It’s a glycerin-based formula that contains extracts from a variety of fruits. The idea of the mask is to apply it all over your face, wait 10 to 20 minutes and rinse it off. I tried it using this method and it does hydrate nicely but I didn’t really feel it did anything else and also felt like it was challenging to remove.

I’ve always had a fascination with mixing things especially beauty things. Fragrances, different lipsticks and lipglosses, and of course, skincare. This was actually created for that purpose. You can use the mask in conjunction with any of Skin Food’s regular line up of masks especially their sugar masks or exfoliating masks. I love, love, love what this does for some of my favorite Skin Food masks.

First off, the texture is a a thicker syrupy gel that has a subtle true honey scent. I use it with Skinfood Black Sugar Honey Wash Off Mask as they seem to pair together nicely. I scoop some of the mask out of the tub and I pour the Real Honey Sugar Topping Mask right on top of that and mix it with my fingers before applying to my face. The Real Honey Sugar Topping allows the mask to spread more easily and adds a nice injection of moisture to the mix. It also makes the exfoliating action a little less harsh and easier when removal time comes up. Black Sugar Honey Wash Off Mask is a great exfoliating mask but I wouldn’t say it’s super moisturizing. I think the Real Honey Sugar Topping def adds a nice injection of moisture to it and makes the scrub a lot less harsher than it normally is. I felt like I experienced way more benefits when using it in conjunction with another mask as my face was not only smoother and softer but did take on that “I just washed my face” glow.

Love this stuff. I’m already on my third bottle of it and really enjoy having it around to mix and match with some of my other favorite Skin Food Masks!

Muse Approved.
