Mask Monday – Tapioca Jelly and a Sheet Mask in a Pod

I’ve been doing some masking!

image

One of my goals this year is to use more of of my cream and wash-off masks. I’ve stopped buying them because I vastly prefer the sheet masks. But I still acquire them once in a while in my Beauteque subscriptions. This one was…weird. It had the texture of tapioca if it were in jelly form.

It functioned like both a mask and one of those exfoliators that you rub into your skin until it balls up. You’re supposes to rub it in and leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing it off. There was a little tingling, and my face felt a bit tight. I assume there was some exfoliating going on, but it wasn’t obvious.

This one was very much like all the other My Beauty Diary masks I’ve tried. Thin sheet that adheres well and really drippy with essence. But my skin always feels wonderful afterward!

This was a sheet mask in a little plastic pod instead of a pouch. It threw me, but I was delighted it wasn’t a wash off. (I can’t wear my glasses with cream or clay on there!) I really liked this one. The sheet itself was of medium thickness, and I needed a silicone mask cover to keep it on if I wanted to sit up. It was really, really moisturizing!

Skin Care Sunday – Some serums and creams

I don’t know how, but I often use things up simultaneously. I finished a bunch of treatments this week. And one I just broke up with.

Tony Moly’s Appletox Honey Cream is actually a gel. For me, the jury’s still out on those kinds of moisturizers. It wasn’t hydrating enough to use by itself on my dry skin, so I used it as a serum in conjunction with a cream. I loved the apple scent. And I washed out the container to reuse. But the cream itself I could take or leave.

I used this cream as a day moisturizer under a separate SPF. It wasn’t too heavy, smelled nice, and sat well under makeup and over serums. It would make a good light night moisturizer as well.

This is my second bottle of the Mad Hippie Vitamin C serum, and I liked it just as much as the first bottle. My skin has gotten used to its strength. That doesn’t mean it’s not working though!

I tried it first as a night serum, but didn’t care for the texture and put it away. I pulled it out again and used it during the day. It’s not thick, but it is sticky. And silicony, which my skin doesn’t always appreciate. So I’m letting this one go.
