One of my favourite ways to pamper myself is to put on a face mask. There is just something so relaxing about putting on a face mask and reading a book, watching a movie or just surfing the web. When I saw that Influencer was sending me two Vichy Mineral Masks complimentary for review I was really excited as both masks looked like something I would be intrigued enough to buy. As well, I’ve typically enjoyed Vichy products in the past. So lets dive into them and see what I thought of Vichy’s Soothing Aloe Vera Mask and Charcoal Mask. Continue reading
Oh my goodness this whole NaBloPoMo thing is coming so close to winning this battle. I think I’m just 100% more disorganized this year, I am flying by the seat of my pants. However, I am overall enjoying the challenge so bring on another post! Tonight I am trying out the SNP Cat Wrinkle Mask Sheet. I’ve used a few SNP masks over the years – I quite enjoy the fun animals on them! Continue reading
I love trying new face masks! This week we will be chatting about the Farmacy Bright-On Massage Activated Vitamin C Mask that I picked up during the Sephora VIB Sale. This mask in particular jumped out at me for a few reasons… one the colour change intrigued me. Secondly, my skin has been so blah lately. The claims that this particular mask seemed perfect for my skin right now. Farmacy Bright-On promises to improve uneven skin-tone, pores and dullness. The texture of my skin and my pores have needed some serious improvement as of late. Continue reading
I love trying new skincare. While I am by no means a skincare expert (at all), I enjoy picking up various samples of moisturizers, face masks, serums… you name it. Within the last year I picked up a deluxe sample of the Boscia Charcoal Pore Pudding (probably using Sephora points) and I have to say I have been using it quite a bit lately. My apologies in advance for the sub-par product shots… I tried experimenting with lighting (instead of natural light) in an effort to beat this fleeting daylight thing and so far I haven’t figured it out.

It’s been awhile since I’ve given my first impressions of a mask around here but today I’ve got my initial thoughts on the SNP Panda Brightening Mask Sheet for you. I picked up this mask last summer at Ulta but am only now getting a chance to try it out. I don’t know about you but there’s something about a sheet mask with an animal on it that makes me so happy. This mask is supposed to replenish dull skin and even out rough texture, leaving behind smooth and brighter looking skin.
The key ingredients in the SNP Panda Brightening Mask Sheet are: coconut water, paper mulberry, mulberry bark extract and niacinamide. I don’t know why but I was getting a citrusy scent from the mask when I was wearing it. The smell was nice though! Continue reading
Winter hit Thunder Bay pretty hard yesterday. It started off raining and then turned into icy/snowy/windy mayhem. I actually thought that my house was going to blow over. All I wanted to do was come home and relax in bed with a nice sheet mask, so that is exactly what I did last night. I’ve had the Tony Moly I’m Real Avocado Mask Sheet in my stash since my trip to Ulta in July so I thought I’d try that one. It is formulated with avocado extract to deliver nutrients deep into the face.
First of all, I found that the Tony Moly I’m Real Avocado Mask Sheet fit SO much better than the last one that I tried. So strange since I bought them both at the same time. Everything aligned perfect on my face and it was very comfortable. I wore it for about 20 minutes. The mask itself did have a tear on it, I’m not sure if it was already torn or if I was too aggressive taking it out of the packaging. This didn’t really affect it’s performance at all though. Continue reading
As you may know, my birthday recently passed, so I thought there was no better time to treat myself to the BioBelle #Decadence Sheet Mask that I purchased on one of my trips to Ulta during the summer. I don’t really eat cupcakes at all so I thought it would be fitting to try the face mask version instead! The BioBelle #Decadence Sheet Mask aims to hydrate and vitalize the skin. The chocolate is high in anti-oxidants which softens the skin and helps hydrate it. The acai berry both helps retain moisture and fights off the line-causing free radicals. Continue reading
Masks have become a recent staple in my skincare routine, particularly sheet masks. They are quick and simple and make minimal mess. When I was recently sent a few Garnier skincare products to try, I was most excited to try out the Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Sheet Mask. It promises to make your skin softer and more radiant by deeply moisturizing.
The first thing that I noticed about the Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Sheet Mask is that it is by-far the best fitting face mask I have ever tried. It felt like it fit my face like a glove. Since it fit so well it felt comfortable for the entire time it was on my face. I wore this mask for about fifteen minutes. Continue reading
Hi guys! My lips have been feeling mega-dried out and scaley lately since apparently the weather has decided to remind us, here in Thunder Bay, that winter is right around the corner. With temperatures suddenly in the minuses my lips felt like they could use a little extra TLC. That’s when I remembered that Sephora had sent me their Rose Lip Mask as part of my invitation package to their opening party in July.
The Sephora Rose Lip Mask is meant for moisturizing and softening which is essentially what my lips were begging for. It claims to, in only fifteen minutes, moisturize, replenish and nourish the lips. The packaging is a bit of a challenge to open and the mask itself almost went flying but, I managed to get it on my lips rather than the floor with some patience and care. Continue reading
Hi guys! I hauled the SNP Rabbit Brightening Mask Sheet back in July when I went to Ulta and I’ve finally gotten around to using it. It was just so adorable looking I kept saving it but, there is no time like the present to try it out! The mask promises to replenish the skin making it softer and more luminous, as well as hydrate and brighten up an uneven skin tone. To be honest, I mostly chose this mask because it had a rabbit on it but, I wouldn’t say no to brighter skin.
One of the things I really enjoyed about the mask is that it fit my face quite well. Unlike the last sheet mask that I tried, I had no issues with the placement of the eyeholes on the SNP Rabbit Brightening Mask Sheet. Continue reading
