Dark Spot Treatment Update

Hello everyone!

I recently had success with treating my dark spots that I received from pimples I have popped. I know…gross, but that’s real life. Lesson: Try not to pop your zits. If you’re like me, sometimes you just can’t help it. But, because I have a dark and olive complexion, popping pimples almost always leaves a dark spot. I decided to find a treatment a couple months ago and it actually works! I wanted to share what helped my dark spots and hopefully it can help any of you guys who are facing the same problem.

Around the end of October, I had shared my first few experiences with the Annie’s Way Arbutin + Hyaluronic Acid Brightnening Jelly Mask. I had seen results the first couple times, which encouraged me to continue using it.

I’ve used the mask about eight times and these are the results. About two months and a couple weeks is the time span. Ignoring my super large pores, you can see that the top mark is gone! I was so happy seeing these pictures! The bottom one is still there, but has faded drastically! I used the mask usually every week and a half, sometimes every two weeks. I used it as a spot treatment on those marks too. Overall, I’m really happy with the outcome of the mask! I got it for $19.50 from Beauteque. I’m sure if you look for it on Amazon or something like that, you’ll be able to find it! Click here for my full review on the mask!

I hope this helps some of you! Feel free to comment or ask questions!

Esfolio: Gold Mask Review

Hello everyone!

I apologize for not posting a lot lately, I’ve been really busy with classes and such. But it’s time for a new mask review!

I decided to try out the Esfolio: Gold Mask that I had received from my Mask Maven subscription.

Esfolio: Gold Mask

This masks’ main ingredient is Colloidal Gold. It’s basically just tiny, nano-particles of gold. The mask says that the gold provides elasticity and purification for skin. It’s supposed to give skin a healthy glow.

Esfolio: Gold Mask

I usually feel like the majority of sheet masks feel the same, but this one really impressed me. Usually, when you put a sheet mask on, you don’t feel anything really afterwards, maybe a cooling of the skin, but that’s it. With this one, I could feel my skin actually tightening. It’s hard to explain, but I felt it working. Also, the material of the mask is different from any other I’ve tried. It’s thicker and more cloth-like, while other masks feel more like paper. After you take off the mask, you’re supposed to rub in the remaining residue.

Overall, I highly recommend this mask! It definetely did what it said it would, promote elasticity and help your skin glow. I noticed my skin wasn’t its usual “dull” self after this mask.

Let me know what you guys think and what your favorite mask is!

Mask Demo/Review: SNP Beijing Opera Brightening Mask

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you’re all having a great start of the week! I wanted to share probably the coolest mask I’ve ever tried. It’s the SNP Beijing Opera Brightening Mask, which I received in one of my Mask Maven bags. Check out my video to see how awesome this mask looks!

This mask will forever be one of my favorite looking masks! I love the design that it had on it, and it made me feel like a very cool dragon/jabawacki! I even had a beard, it was great.

The mask says, “Brightening mask to restore dull and rough skin with radiant energy, delivering luminosity and softness.” You’re supposed have already cleaned your skin with your cleanser/toner. After you take off the mask, you just pat in the leftover residue and let it make your skin feel amazing.

Even though this mask is awesome to look at, I didn’t really feel that my skin got brighter. But, it did make my skin plump and soft, which is great!

I would definitely buy this mask again! Even though I didn’t get too many benefits, I just love the way it looks! If you need a Halloween costume, just wear this mask. You got a costume and you’re helping your skin, two birds with one stone!

I hope you guys enjoyed this and feel free to leave any questions/comments down below!

Giovanni D:Tox System Purifying Facial Mask

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today, I wanted to share a new mask that I discovered at TJ Maxx! Yes, TJ Maxx! I’m obsessed with their skincare section. They have such a variety of different products and brands I’ve never heard of, you definitely need to check it out! The mask is by the brand Giovanni and it’s their D:Tox System Purifying Facial Mask. Check out my video for a review/demo below!

I absolutely love this mask! It’s cooling to the skin and it doesn’t really have a scent to it. I also really loved that when you put it on, it’s gray, but when it dries it’s a blue color. That lets you know exactly when it’s done. It also only takes twenty minutes!

Giovanni D:Tox Purifying Facial Mask

The texture of the mask is like a moisturizing, type of clay. It’s very easy to put on and a little definitely goes a long way. After you wash the mask off, it makes your skin feel really clean. It has activated charcoal, volcanic ash, and super-antioxidants Acai, and Goji Berry. The activated charcoal and volcanic ash pull out the dirt and oil that’s on your face.

Giovanni D:Tox Purifying Facial Mask

The mask works very well, but I would recommend using this one time a week. Since it does have specific ingredients that pulls everything off of your skin, it can get very drying if you use it more than once. After you wash it off, definitely use a moisturizer!

Overall, I’m in love with this mask! It’s amazing when you have oily/greasy/humid days! Keeps everything clean and smooth! Also, it’s only 5.99 at Tj Maxx! It’s inexpensive and efficient! Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried it!

Hope you guys enjoyed! Thanks for reading!

Review: Black Seaweed Peel-Off Masque

Hey guys!

So I’m completely obsessed with this masque! I’ve only used it about 3-4 times, but I absolutely love it. It’s the Black Seaweed Peel-Off Masque, by the brand Montagne Jeunesse.

Black Seaweed Masque

The product itself is extremely sticky when you’re putting it on your face. But, it’s more of a thin consistency, rather than thick, so it’s not messy at all. All you need is a thin, even layer. Just let it sit for about 15-20 minutes, and you should be able to peel it off easily. See the video of how I put it on!

Black Mask Seaweed

My face feels so clean and soft afterwards! The first time I tried this mask, I had a breakout on both my temples, and they went down slightly after this mask! Definitely try this is you have breakouts and oily skin. The mask is PETA and vegetarian approved and is animal-cruelty free. The two main ingredients are Black Laver Seaweed and Sea Buckthorn. The description on the package says, “A seaside detox to cleanse deeply and peel off dirt and grease weekly”. Anything that takes dirt and grease off my face is welcomed.

The only downside to this masque is that I can’t find it in a tube! I’ve only seen it in the little packages, which I get 2 uses out of. But, I would prefer the big tube, so I don’t have to buy the packages in bulk. But the packages are $2 at Ulta, so it’s not too bad.

Overall, this mask is amazing! You get a lot of benefits for an inexpensive price. Let me know if you guys have tried it!

Review: Freeman Feeling Beautiful Cucumber Facial Peel-Off Mask

Hello lovelies!

So I wanted to share one of my favorite masks. It’s the Freeman Feeling Beautiful Cucumber Facial Peel-Off Mask. I love it! When I peel it off, I can feel all of the dirt and oil leaving my face, and I can see it on the mask. It gives that satisfactory feeling you get when you pull off a pore strip.

Freeman Feeling Beautiful: Cucumber Facial Peel-Off Mask

The only con I have about it, is putting it on. The product is extremely messy, sticky, and drips everywhere. Be sure to get your hair out of the way, and apply the mask preferably over the sink. Also, while you’re waiting for it to dry, put a towel on. I know that sounds weird, but think of it like a bib. The mask drips in different places, and I learned that setting a towel on me, while I’m sitting down helps my clothes from getting ruined. The instructions say to wait about 5 to 10 minutes for it to dry, but for me it take about 20. To each their own I guess.

Also, it’s super affordable, which is always good. I usually get mine at CVS. The tube in the picture is about $4.29, and the sample is $2.  But overall, this mask is awesome!

Let me know if you’ve tried it or what your favorite mask is! Also, check out my number one mask: Avocado and Oatmeal Masque.

Review on Facial Clay Mask: Avocado and Oatmeal

Hello beautiful people!

So I wanted to share one of my favorite skincare products. It’s the Facial Clay Mask in Avocado and Oatmeal by the Freeman Feeling Beautiful company. I love this stuff! It’s super simple to put on and equally as easy to take off. It can come in a huge tube, which has 6 fl. oz, or a small trial sized packed which has .5 fl. oz.  Both women and men can definetly get good use out of this!

I like to use this whenever my skin is feeling greasy/oily, or when I have a couple pimples, (gross I know, would you prefer zits?),  randomly. This always helps my skin. It makes it soft and I’ve noticed that the bumps go down a little, which I absolutely love.

It comes out as this light blue/green color and feels like a slightly thick lotion. Don’t worry, it’s not one of those types of masks that just keeps dripping when you put it on. The texture is amazing and it sticks to your face perfectly. You can easily tell when it’s time to take it off because, like all masks, it gets super hard. I usually leave it on for about 20 minutes of more, mostly because I kind of forget to take it off…hehe.

Well, that’s all on that! If you tried it, let me know! Also, I did a tutorial/quick review video on it, so if you want to see what it looks like, take a look below! Thanks a lot for reading! Bye!
