I love using a face mask when I have the time, I’ll only use a face masks in the evening when Cameron’s home and Ellie’s sleeping. I would hate to be doing a face mask and tend to Ellie and frighten her with a strange looking face. I also sometimes put a face mask on before I jump in the shower and wash it off at the end of my shower when I don’t have the time but if I feel my skin needs it.
Top two face masks
My two favorite face masks to do, which are also the face masks I’ll do when trying to save time and use a face mask in the shower are Origin skin’s Retexturizing Mask With Rose Clay or Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Mask. I enjoy these most as I feel they leave my skin feeling firmer but also glowing! I also love that these face masks are easy to wash off.
My favorite pore clearing face masks
I also really enjoy Peter Thomas Roth’s Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask and Origin Skin’s Active Charcoal Mask To Clear Pores. I don’t use exfoliating face mask often as I have dry skin and rosacea and find if I use these too often my skin will be further dried out and my rosacea will flare-up. So my go-to are masks that hydrate, gently retexturize, or that leave the skin glowing. These face masks also require a little elbow grease to wash off, a top tip is even if you’d rather save dirtying a wash cloth to take these off, if you do use one you will have the face mask off in half the time.
Moisturizing face masks
I also have these moisturizing “face masks” do you count these as face masks? Or what category would you put these into? I have the Origin’s Overnight Hydrating Mask and Origin’s 10 Minute Mask which I love as I have dry skin. If I’m going to use these I use them at night in place of my night cream as they have a thick consistency, which I personally love the way it feels but not for applying makeup on top off during the day.
What’s your favorite face mask? Or what do you like to do when you find yourself with a little extra time for self-care?
