I love my face masks, and I always have a few different ones on rotation depending on what I’m in the mood for and what I feel like my skin is in need of in that day and time. So, today I wanted to share what face masks I am currently using. I’ve also been using a couple face masks tools, which I also wanted to mention in this post as well.
The Peel-Off One
7th Heaven Charcoal + Black Clay Peel-Off* I thoroughly enjoy charcoal peel-off masks for a few reasons. 1. Peel-off masks in general are super satisfying to remove. 2. Since these masks are black, and not clear like most peel-off masks, it means you can easily see where you’ve applied the product and you know you will have none of it still lingering on your face afterwards. 3. My boyfriend loves using them with me. Designed for oily, normal and combo skin, this mask uses Amazonian black clay to help absorb excess oil, whilst activated charcoal works to detoxify the skin and draw out impurities. It also contains witch hazel, which is very soothing and helps to balance out the skin. Honestly, my face feels like new every time I use this.
The Self-Heating One
The Body Shop Mineral & Ginger Warming Massage Clay Face Mask I love self-heating masks, as not only do they feel amazing on the skin, but the heat helps to open up and unclog my pores. All the aspects of this mask leaves me feeling completely relaxed and rejuvenated—from the thick consistency of this kaolin clay mask to the incredible warming sensation to the stimulating ingredients of ginger and cinnamon oil—it really feels like a spa experience whenever I use this.
Neutrogena Deep Clean Purifying Clay Cleanser/Mask* This oil-free mask is one of the newer skincare products on my shelf, and I love that it’s not only a clay mask, but also doubles as a daily cleanser. I like using it as a cleanser when I’m in the shower—it foams a tiny bit and helps get rid of any lingering dirt, oil and makeup on my face. However, using this as a mask gives my skin a much deeper clean. I let the mask sit on my skin until the clay has dried—usually about 10 minutes—and it helps to dry out any spots without drying out my skin. Shout out to Influenster for letting me test this product out!
The Bubble One
e.l.f. Hydrating Bubble Mask I wouldn’t say this mask is so much effective, as it is just fun to use. It comes out as a gel, and when applied to damp skin it begins to bubble up instantly (make sure to avoid your eyes and nostrils). Once the bubbles begin to dissipate, usually about 5-10 minutes, you then massage it into the skin before removing with warm water. I wouldn’t say this mask gives my skin a ton of hydration, like the name suggests (I prefer sheet masks when my skin needs a surge of moisture), but it does leave my skin feeling really clean and soft, which I enjoy.
EcoTools Facial Mask Tools* I’ve been curious to try out some tools specifically designed for face masks, as my face mask ‘tools’ have never really expanded beyond a damp facecloth. I already am a huge of EcoTools’s cruelty-free makeup brushes and sponges, so it’s no surprise that I’m also a fan of their face mask tools. The Mask Applicator Brush helps you apply your face masks, resulting in less mess and less wasted product. I like that the soft, flat bristles give me more control when applying my face masks, making it easier to avoid getting the mask in my eyebrows and hairline. The Mask Remover Sponges, which are made from natural plant pulp, help easily remove your face masks, whilst also offering gentle exfoliation. The sponges also work well with your regular cleanser when washing your face. Both tools also rinse and wash easily.
