Avon Defense 3D Face Mask Review

This week I received the new Avon Defense 3D Face Masks and I find them to be a great mask for daily trips.

I have found that my homemade masks are a bit too thick and awkward while the Avon Defense 3D Face Mask fits my face well and feels comfortable. I also liked that my glasses didn’t fog up while wearing it.

Because it’s a polyester blend I was able to wash it well and it retains the shape. However, when temps go up the polyester blend is a bit warmer than cotton. However I’ve found that my homemade cotton masks are scratchy and shrink in the wash. These masks are for adults. The mask was a bit too large on my young teen.

The Avon Defense 3D Face Mask come in purple, red, black and grey with black trim and cost $8.50. Buy online at https://www.avon.com/product/avon-defense-3d-face-mask-72639?rrec=false&rep=bonnied

Dr. Jart+ Shake & Shot Rubber Face Mask Demo & Review

Today I picked up the new Dr. Jart+ Shake & Shot Rubber Face Mask and I am thrilled with the outcome! These amazing masks come in 4 varieties, I got the Brightening Mask.

What’s to love?

First up, the packaging is both cool and creepy. The mask comes in a milkshake style plastic cup with a lid that looks like a baby face and the straw/spatula comes out of its mouth (see, cool and creepy!)

Inside the cup are two pouches that have to be mixed together. They have to be shaken, not stirred : ) Stirring just makes sludge. Shaking makes the mask!

Once the mask is shaken you can apply with the spatula or your fingers. I found it easier to use my fingers. The mask is super smooth and feels amazing. It has no scent and does not feel or smell like rubber. I kept my mask on for 20 minutes and it dried soft and firm. It was super easy to peel off and my skin felt very smooth and did look a bit brighter when I was done.

These masks are a bit pricey at $12 but there is a generous amount so I think you could share with a friend.

Overall I am thrilled with this mask and the firming one is next on my list.

GLAMGLOW Gravitymud Firming Treatment Sonic Blue Collectible Edition Review

The GLAMGLOW Gravitymud Firming Treatment Sonic Blue Collectible Edition is the most expensive face mask I’ve ever used but well worth it and if I ever win the lottery I’m buying about 50 of these.

I bought this tube of Sonic Blue Gravitymud at Sephora for $22 for 0.05 oz. (yes, I am crazy) and without another income source I’m definitely not buying another one. However aside from the price I love the product.

What’s to love?

I’ve been a fan of GlamGlow for about a year now and relish in getting their masks in my beauty boxes because I really do love their products.

The Gravitymud in Sonic Blue is that same as the silver Gravitymud only it’s blue. I’ve used the silver variety too.

Gravitymud in Sonic Blue is a peel off mask (which I love) and it goes on smoothly and I leave the metallic blue (it’s really blue) mask on for 30 minutes then peel it off. It’s actually easier to peel if you apply a thicker coat but then you have to use more product. I wipe they reside off with a wet make-up remover or just wash it off with cleanser and water.

I get no burning or redness from the Gravitymud masks and this one left my face smooth and tight. I’d love to use it twice a week as recommended however the $22 tube give me 2 uses so that would be about $88/month for treatments. Whoa!

I also love how GlamGlow smells. All of their masks have a unique scent and that smells amazing to me.

Overall I’m thrilled with this mask I just don’t love the price.

Que Bella Face Mask Refreshing Pomegranate Peel-Off Mask Review

Target has a ton of new face masks including the Que Bella Face Mask Refreshing Pomegranate Peel-Off Mask which I picked up today. I really loved the results too.

m

What’s to love?

This is a clear gel mask that has a fairly strong fruit scent. It’s pretty sticky but it was easy to apply with my fingers and there is a generous amount in the package for one application.

I love peel-off masks because I feel like they do a deep clean on my skin and this one worked well. I left in on for 20 minutes and it was super easy to peel off with no pain or sticking. It did burn my face just a little, but nothing that bothered me.

I was also thrilled with the results. My face felt very clean and exfoliated when I was done and it looks smoother. I also bought the Watermelon Relieving mask to try next.

Price: $1.99

Pur~lisse Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask Review

Over the past 6 months I’ve gotten a lot of Pur~lisse samples and I finally got around to using the Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask and I loved it. This mask is an excellent exfoliator and my face felt so soft after this treatment.

What’s to love?

I am a huge fan of clay masks and this one is super nice because it’s an exfoliator too. The Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask has Blue Lotus Seeds, White Clay, Bamboo, Ginger, White Tea and Mushroom Extract.

The white formula is super creamy clay with mild exfoliation seeds. It smells amazing with a light earthy floral scent. After gently rubbing in the mask I left it on my face for 10 minutes and washed it off with warm water. The mask did not feel tight as it dried but it does feel tingly as it dries.

My face felt amazing after this treatment. It was soft, smooth and oil free and I plan on using this once a week. I’m really glad I have a bunch of these samples now!

Price: $52 2.5 oz.

L’Oreal PURE-CLAY MASK Detox & Brighten Charcoal Clay Mask Review

I’m on a roll today with the masks! Last night I used the L’Oreal PURE-CLAY MASK Exfoliate & Refining Treatment Mask and it just didn’t work for me, the scent was way to strong and floral. So today I decided to test out the black charcoal L’Oreal PURE-CLAY MASK Detox & Brighten Clay Mask and I love it!

I have always been a fan of charcoal masks and this one is amazing. It also just goes to show that you should test out all three of these L”Oreal masks to find the one that works for you.

What’s to love?

The Detox & Brighten is just what I love in a mask. The scent is much lighter than the Exfoliate & Refining Mask. It does have a very light fresh/earthy/floral scent but I like it.

It was easy to spread the thick black creamy mask on my face and as it dried I could feel it tightening and it had that cracking effect that I love. I could feel this mask working if that makes sense. Once the mask was dry (it took 10 minutes) I washed it off with a wash cloth and warm water.

I really loved the results of this mask. I’m not sure if you can see in the photo but my face was clean, dry and smooth with no reddness. I really do feel like I had a detox treatment and I think my skin looks brighter.

Overall I love theDetox & Brighten mask and am definitely going to get the full-sized product.

Right after application, after 10 minutes, after removal.

Price: $12.99

Josie Maran Whipped Mud Mask in Vanilla Apricot Review

I got a sample of the Josie Maran Whipped Mud Mask in Vanilla Apricot in my August Ipsy bag.

jm.jpg

What’s to love?

This mask is the perfect color for Fall! It looks very orange and the smell reminds me of the St. Ives Apricot Scrub that I used when I was in my twenties and aside from looking like an Oompa Loompa I give this one a 9 out of 10.

I’d say this is a basic clay face mask that dries fairly quickly.  I left it on my face for 5 minutes and washed off with a warm wash cloth. My skin felt soft after removing but the skin around my eyes felt just a little dry. I would have liked a little more moisture in the mask. My pores did seem a little bit smaller too. I’m wondering what age group this mask is targeted for.

The masks are “formualted with 100% Pure Argan oil” and are free of Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates which is nice.

I don’t think you can buy this mask as a single item which is interesting. It’s part of a 5-pack whipped mud mask set and I think I might like the Sweet Basil Mint better than the Apricot mask. I wish you could buy one scent at a time.

GlamGlow FlashMud Brightening Treatment Review

I’ve used the GlamGlow FlashMud Brightening Treatment about 3 times now and it does wonders for my face. I am so in love with the entire GlamGlow line.

gg

What’s to love?

The FlashMud Brightening is a gritty white paste with little leafy bits and pieces. I rub the mask in with a circular motion then let it set for 20 minutes. It feels amazing on my face with no burning or irritation and the smell is light and fresh.

I wiped it off after 20 minutes and my face was a bit red but that subsided in a few minutes. I do feel like my face is a lot brighter after the treatment. Keep in mind that I am 46 and have some discoloration and uneveness in my skin. Afterwards I did a 3 minute make-over using Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in ZZ, Clinique CC Cream, Clinique Cheek Pop in Berry Pop and Kat Von D’s  Shade + Light Contour Quad in Rust.

The instructions say to use 2-3 days in a row then 2-3x per week. I need to invest in a larger jar to get that much use. Unfortunately GlamGlow is pricey and I try to wait for a sale to get my favorites or I buy a sample pack.

 

Skin Food Black Sugar Mask Review

Here’s my 3rd sample of the day! I got the Skin Food Black Sugar Mask in my August 2016 Birchbox and it was just what I needed today!

bb6.jpg

What’s to love?

My face was in desperate need of a good exfoliating today and the Skin Food Black Sugar Mask did the trick.

The mask is super grainy and smells just like fruit. I rubbed the mask into my skin and let it set for 10 minutes. The mask felt amazing on my face, very refreshing and nice. I love these rough exfoliating masks because my skin is oily and tends to look dull if I don’t  exfoliate often. I rarely get redness from masks.

I washed the mask off with a warm clothe and my skin feels smooth and tight. I really love this mask and plan on adding it into my monthly routine.
