One of my simple pleasures in life is a weekly facial mask ritual, and so for last week's Beauty Mark It challenge, I asked you to review your favorite/not so favorite masks on our awesome new Product Review Site. Whether they be gels, creams, acne reducers, or firming enhancers, luxurious facial masks make me feel like a queen — well, for a few minutes, at least.
I loved reading everybody's opinions, and the following three reviews really stood out:
- Mrs sonshine reviewed Clarins Truly Matte Pure and Radiant Mask ($27) — "Clarins is known for their gentle yet effective natural skincare. This Truly Matte Pure and Radiant Mask is one of their best products. Gentle enough for my dry and sensitive skin, it works like a vacuum to clean out yucky pores. I love applying it with a brush after a hot steamy shower."
- Bailaoragaditana reviewed The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Face Mask ($15.50) — "Fantabulous, this is! It smells strong and makes your face bright green, yes, but it also sucks the oil out of your skin like no other. It's a bit difficult to remove, so I use a washcloth or exfoliating cloth to scrub it off. It can be kind of drying, but it's great as a weekly or twice-weekly mask for oily or blemish-prone skin."
- Sofi reviewed Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser / Mask ($7.00) — "The benzoyl peroxide in this works well when you leave it on as a mask, but watch out for lots of dryness afterwards. Slightly irritating if you are sensitive. If you need a quick fix for some breakouts, this may work but be ready for a bit of flakiness for a few days."
