Wine + Mask Wednesday (Covert Farms Organic Wine and My Beauty Diary Red Vine Sheet Mask)

The theme for this week's Wine + Mask Wednesday is: Red Wine!

Here is my Wine of the Week:

Covert Farms Family Estate "Stoneface" ~ $20. Covert Farms is in Oliver, BC and is described as:
"We’re an organic farm, vineyard, and winery. Our organically-grown wine portfolio includes Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon, and Rosé, as well as proprietary red blends The Bluff, MDC and Amicitia. Relax on our licensed patio and enjoy a glass wine with a charcuterie and cheese board featuring small bites from the farm."

Here is a closer look at the wine:


Stoneface is a blend of Syrah and Zinfandel - all grapes are grown organically on this family farm! Here is a look at the wine:

This wine is quite a bit darker red than I normally drink, but I actually really enjoyed it! This wine is fruity and has a deep peppery note. 

And here is my Mask of the Week:

My Beauty Diary Red Vine Mask ~ ~$1 - $2. (Just received this in the Beauteque Mask Maven!) This mask is for brightening and revitalizing - here is how it is described:
"My Beauty Diary Red Vine Mask is a brightening and revitalizing product.
Red wine polyphenols is also known as red grape polyphenols. It has reputation for its anti-oxidizing function. With camellia seeds, yeast compound extracts, it improves dull and tired skin, skin becomes radiant and elastic, healthy as blushed. No makeup is needed.
Collagen and polysaccharides extracted from water-soluble protein, red algae and aloe boosts skin’s firmness and elasticity. With natural arnica, watercress that contains rich tannins, skin restores its vitality and healthiness.
Patented moisturizing ingredients CosphingoTM maintains skin’s natural state of healthiness. It hydrates and locks moisture, restores skin’s softness and smoothness.
Does not contains Paraben preservatives, alcohol or fluorescent agents."

The mask is easy to apply:
1. Wash and tone face
2. Remove mask from package and unfold

(This mask comes with a plastic overlay making it a little easier to unfold)
3. Apply to face and leave on for 20-30 minutes

(This mask actually fits my face quite well - I like that I didn't need to fold it too much)
4. Remove and pat in excess essence
5. Complete skincare routine

This mask smells like grapes and was actually quite essence-y! There was a lot initially dripping around my chin and mouth, but it did stop once the mask had been on for a few minuted. It stayed on nicely for 30 minutes and was happy with the results!

How was your Wine and Mask Wednesday?
