Another week, another mask. In this week’s episode, I finally try one of the Yes To… masks. I bought a few of them a few weeks ago when I saw them on sale at Shoppers and since I had a lovely blemish pop up a couple days ago, what better time to review a blemish fighting mask!
Welcome to my inventory, a super exclusive look at what’s in my drawers. I always love seeing what other people have in their collections and seeing where some people go ham for products and really cinch it up in others. I’m starting out with the basics, the base products like foundation, powder and concealer since they are all pretty close to one another in function. I’m not going to spend too much time talking about each product since a post like that would take forever to do and read but I will try and highlight some of my favourites.
Another empties post, but a bit different. Since I haven’t really been keeping track of this stuff, I am doing this in a more global way. Rather than going product by product I’m going by category, listing what I’ve finished in it and talking about the stuff I have strong feelings for.
Let’s get started!
After a hard day of work, sheet masks are always the best way to unwind and take a break. Continue reading “Monday Mask: Goodal Raspberry Infused Honey Milk Sheet Mask”
January flew by and it looks like February is doing the same. So empties time! Continue reading “Empties: January 2018”
I actually managed to score one of the coveted rewards from the Rewards Bazaar! I got the email and immediately got on to Sephora and saw that the Ole Henriksen reward was still available and snagged it. So keep reading for my thoughts on this reward as well as some info on the Sephora Rewards Bazaar.
Purpose: Will “restore moisture deep into the skin” and will “bring out the natural glow of your skin.
Price: 4$ CAD*
Time: 15-20 minutes
Scent: No scent at all.
Texture: The texture is nice, fairly typical of sheet masks. If you’ve ever used a snail product before you’ll know how the texture can be really stringy and sticky, but I didn’t really find there was much of that here.
Experience: As much as it didn’t fall off, it did feel like it was going to slip off my face slowly. And I think it actually did!
Result: While it takes a bit of time for the rest of the mask to sink into the skin(well over 10 minutes), I find that it actually does something! My skin does look brighter and definitely feels more hydrated. So finally, a mask that matches its claims! Also, my skin just looked really nice, kinda like that glass skin trend going around that I don’t fully understand. Just, with my imperfections still there. And the next day, hooboy did my skin feel nice to the touch! Soft and smooth and nicely hydrated.
Final Verdict: If this didn’t slide down my face, I’d like this a lot more! My skin felt hydrated and looked brighter, but of course, these results are just temporary. If the mask was a bit cheaper I might look into repurchasing this but at 4$ a pop, this is a little too much for me for a single use mask. But, if I ever need to get a few more dollars to get free shipping, I would add this to my cart in a heartbeat. I’d highly recommend you try this, especially for something like the night before a big event.
* It looks as though it’s sold out everywhere I can find it, sorry!
Welcome to another project pan! I started, finished and given up multiple project pans, but somehow I don’t think I’ve ever done a rolling one. I’ve purchased a large number of products recently, so a rolling project pan is the best way to get some use on them as well use up some older products.
Purpose: “Minimize pores and gently treat skin to be more smooth and supple.”
Price: 8$ CAD
Time: 10-20 mins
Scent: No scent that I could smell.
Fit: Fairly nice fit that doesn’t slip around, although I still had to cut the nose part.
Texture: A really nice almost silicone-like feel to the essence that allows it to have major slip across the skin. It feels thick and heavy on.
Experience: Not going to lie, the plastic mesh thing really threw me off and it really didn’t make putting on the mask any easier. In fact, it made it hard enough that I took it off and ignored it. It stays on the face nicely and doesn’t feel like it’s going to fall off. It didn’t dry within the twenty minutes I had it on, but once I took it off, one half of my face felt like it had more essence on it than the other, which is really weird. It does dry down quickly.
Result: Well, my skin felt soft and hydrated, so the smooth and supple claims were right, but my pores looked just as big as before. So, while the mask was nice, it didn’t really do anything special for the price.
Final Verdict: Since nothing seemed to have changed by the time I woke up the next day, I would not repurchase this. It was nice feeling on the skin and dried quickly, but my pores are still on the larger side. So this is a no-go for me.
Have you tried it? Let me know!
The year has come to an end and my year of hoarding my beauty trash is over. Well, I’ll still do the same next year, but at least I can finally get rid of what I’ve collected this year. I have a small container with my Project 100 Pan items and a large cloth Sephora bag with everything else,. Both are completely full, so it’s great timing that the year is over! This post is totalling up everything I’ve finished, though none of the products from my Project 100 Pan are in the photo. Continue reading “Empties 2017: Year End Review”
