I'm an addict. I'm addicted to face masks and I'm addicted to online shopping. So I'm gonna use these two addictions in this post to review some face masks I used and tried from Iherb ( almost a third addiction :). I Love face masks. They are a means to relax after a long day (and they are mostly long) and pamper your skin and try to get a bit of a better complexion despite this stressful life. I love high end masks also, REN, Aesop, antipodes and so and ill review you them in a coming post, but im realy glad I found some good, affordable, effective and mostly natural masks on iherb.
I use a mask 2-3 times a week and try to use at least once a week an exfoliating mask and once a week a purifying mask. Once in a while I also use a moisturizing mask.
My skin Is combination with the occasional breakout or dehydration.
So here we go
Alba Botanica, Facial Mask, Papaya Enzyme
This is one of my favorites. Alba cosmetics in general is one of my favorite natural brands as they are effective, pampering and affordable. This is a great exfoliating mask , it might be a bit tingly the first time you use it but nothing bad. It has a nice cool jell texture which is lovely in summer and it doesn’t dry. it leaves skin amazingly soft and glowing. I love it
Total ranking 4.5/5
Reviva Labs, Oxygen Mask, Green Papaya & Hydrogen Peroxide
This was a disappointing mask. It did leave skin nice afterwards but it was very unpleasant to put on and take off. It has a very thick and sticky consistency and water itself doesn’t take it off, you need soap and to scrub it off and I don’t like scrubbing my face after an exfoliating mask…. I wonder if the skin felt smooth after ward because of the scrub or the mask
Total ranking 2/5
Andalou Naturals, Glycolic Mask, Pumpkin Honey, Brightening
Another favorite and im eager to try other Andalou products. Its an orange mask, looks a bit like pumpkin puree. It is an exfoliating mask. People say its comparable to Michael Todd's pumpkin mask but I cant compar. It doesn’t dry. It leaves skin glowing and smooth. I would buy again,
Total tanking 4/5
Alba Botanica, Even Advanced Deep Sea Facial Mask
This is my newest mask and im still trying it out. It has a nice pasty/creamy texture and it dries on your face but not in the cement, cant move your face, way that other clay based maskes do (it’s a purifying mask) . So far it’s a nice mask that clear skins and brightens, I still don’t know if it even outs skin tone.
iits also gentle so i think you can use it often.
Total tanking- not final 3.5/5
There are many masks I still want to try like the Aztec clay mask and Sea Minerals, Black Mud. Would love to hear what you think and get some recommendations to feed my addiction
