After talking about pampering my skin every Sunday in a Daily Diaries post, I was asked to do a post on face masks. I thought it was a great idea! First I’ll tell you a little secret: I don’t just pamper my skin on Sunday’s, I like to do a mid-week face mask as well. Second, I’d like to give a little disclaimer. I am not a skincare expert, so all of the masks that I’m talking about today are masks that I’ve found through trying many different masks. These are the masks that make my skin feel and look better, so I’ll talk a little bit more about why I like them and when I like to use them.
There are three type of masks that I tend to reach for and a specific mask that I’ve been using that I’ll talk about today. First I’ll talk about the types.
4. Lush’s Mask of Magnaminty. This is the mask that I’ve been using regularly on Sunday night and I’m giving it special attention because as I talked to my mom about the different face masks that I like to use I told her about the mud and charcoal masks and then said, “My skin hasn’t freaked out for awhile so I haven’t had to use them.” I’ve also started using different moisturizers so I don’t know if it’s this mask, the moisturizers or a combination of the two, but I have noticed a big improvement in my skin. This mask also has exfoliating beads. I like them because they’re gentle, but they also make a big mess. That’s the one downfall to the mask. This one is green, which elicited a drawn out, “Ewwwww!” from my nephew when he saw me wearing it once.
I have a few recipes for DIY masks that I’d like to try. I’ll be sure to tell you what I think of them when I do.
What are your favorite face masks? Do you have any DIY recipes that you love?
Note: I purchased all of the products listed in this post.
