Ever since I was little, I had a fascination with face masks. Whether they were the peel off masks, or green mud masks, I loved the idea of applying something to your face, sitting in a bubble bath, and having the ultimate relaxation experience.
Even if face masks didn't work, I think I would still use them because it's the idea of helping your skin while just laying down-- who wants to move around when your face is tight and you look like a zombie? Nope, I lay down in my bed or a bath when I have a face mask on.
As I've learned more about beauty and skincare, I've learned more about what face masks can do for you and all the different types. I've gotten a lot better at choosing face masks for my skin type and my needs... I've also started doing face masks 1-2 times a week. I like to space them out so I'm not overdoing it and putting too much on my skin.
I've recently been really into sheet masks, as has the entire beauty industry. They're quick, easy, and aren't as messy as typical masks that you apply from a tube or jar. My favorites have been the Sephora face masks (they have eye masks too which are amazing), and I really like the Dr. Jart ones as well, especially the Pore Minimizing one which I received in a past Birchbox
I will always be a drugstore gal through and through, and you can't go wrong with the Freeman Masks, whether you get them in foil packets or in the big tube. I have the Stress Relief, Avocado, and Charcoal masks and I use them regularly. They all have different uses and satisfy my different skin needs.
I also just tried two packets of the famous GlamGlow Youthmud Mask (in the black jar) and I will be buying the full size -- full review coming soon so stay tuned! It definitely is worth it to me... at least get the $19 one from Sephora.
I think face masks are an important part of your skincare routine because they give your skin that extra boost and those extra benefits that you may not be getting from your regular skincare. I usually stick to brightening masks, mud masks, charcoal masks, and fatigue masks. They all serve my skin differently, and actually work. I think my favorite has to be charcoal and mud masks because they are so purifying and I can feel the difference in my skin.
Face masks are an addition to your regular skincare and if your skin is acting up, a face mask can be a quick fix. If I have a blemish, I'll break out a anti blemish mask and it'll help speed along the process.
