The Maskening

There's nothing quite like a face mask and cold brew to start your Friday. Blasting Cher and a great J. Biebs remix also adds to the festivities. I'm doing a shift at a new store and to calm my nerves I'm having a spa morning while doing some brand research. I honestly feel like the ultimate multitasker *multiMASKER* right now. 


First I exfoliated with my Aesop Purifying Facial Exfoliating Paste to create a smooth masking base. I went on a lovely adventure to Super H Mart Yesterday so I bought literally 15 sheet masks, so today's masks are both TonyMoly which can be purchased at Ulta.

Results:

  • skin looked smoother
  • zero redness
  • minimized pores greatly around my nose

TonyMoly I'm Real Red Wine

  • apply to clean dry skin 
  • leave for 20-30 minutes
  • remove sheet
  • massage in leftover serum

Utilizes: 

Red Wine extract to purify and reduce the appearnce of pores

Feelings:

  • Very wet. It took a couple minutes to fully adhere
  • Has a slight cooling sensation, but that could be because of my fan. It is not unpleasant. 
  • Does not smell like wine but rather wine adjacent. Its fresh and light and a little tangy in a good way. 
  • left on for 30 minutes
  • skin felt a touch stingy and cold after serum was massaged in but not necisarily irritated. 

Red wine mask and iced coffee, Aloe mask and neighbors making a ruckus, Fresh new baby face full of hydration and hope. 


Up next is the Aloe hydrating mask. I did this immideatly after the red wine one with zero down time. 

TonyMoly I'm Real Aloe 

  • apply to clean dry skin
  • leave on for 20-30 minutes
  • remove sheet
  • massage in remaining serum

Utilizes:

Aloe Extract and water enriched essence for maximum hydration

Feelings:

  • Not as wet as the red wine. Stayed in place nicely
  • Did awkwardly drip but didn't move at all
  • Feels really fresh
  • Smells a little medicinal right when applied but dissipates very quickly
  • left on for 30 minutes
  • serum absorbed beautifully

Results:

  • Skin is so freaking soft
  • Litterally feels like a cloud
  • Plump and fresh appearance 
  • I could touch my face all day
  • Looks so clear and rejuvinated

I followed these little cuties with my belif Problem Skin Essence and the Erborian Bamboo Creme Frappe moisturizer to prep my skin for makeups later.
