March 2016 - Month in Masks & Mask Empties

As most of you know by now, my Skincare Routine is very important to me and masking is a huge part of that routine (and it is probably my favorite part of my skincare routine! 

This post is a review of all the masks I use each month and mini reviews on all of them - I also consider the Month of Masks my Mask Empties post, because I do not feature my sheet masks in my monthly empties post! You can check out my past Month of Masks here

My goal this month was to use a mask every single day (because I did so terribly in February!) and I pretty much met that goal - with the exception of a couple of days! 

thefaceshop clean sebum control mask

Clean Face Sebum Control Soothing Mask Sheet the face shop

March 1
Clean Face Sebum Control Soothing Mask Sheet ~ $3. The Clean Face mask helps fight acne problems for flawless looking skin! Enriched with tea tree oil, it helps eliminate excess sebum to reduce the appearance of imperfections.

My skin was pretty bad coming out of February, so I needed something to help calm my skin! This mask was a bit too big on my face, but adhered well to my skin. There was a little extra essence. This did dry quickly on my skin and overall, it was just ok. Not the best for my skin. 
Repurchase: No

Juara Skincare Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Facial Mask

March 2
Juara Skincare Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Facial Mask ~ sample size 0.34 oz for $4.19 (full size is 3 oz for $37). A must for radiant skin, JUARA’s Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask utilizes the proven power of Indonesian turmeric. This powerful mask detoxifies, brightens and strengthens stressed, tired, dull-looking skin in one single application. Turmeric extract works to brighten and even out skin tone while providing antioxidant protection, kaolin clay purifies skin and refines pores and a touch of candlenut oil is added to soften and nurture skin. This unique mask is a great instant pick me up!

This mask is a rinse off mask - you apply it and leave on for 15 minutes and rinse off. This mask is warming and slightly tingly (but not too tingly). This made my skin feel and look amazing - my husband even commented on how good my skin looked after using this! I reviewed this on a Wine and Mask Wednesday here
Repurchase: I'm thinking YES! 

Avene Eau Thermale Soothing Moisture Mask

March 3
Avene Eau Thermale Soothing Moisture Mask ~ sample (full size is $27.91). Normal to sensitive skin. Tired, dull, lack luster skin Reactive skin (Redness, tightness, sunburn). Benefits: Rich, creamy, non-setting mask soothes over stressed skin. Replenishes moisture to dehydrated skin and helps restore skin's barrier. Deeply penetrates skin to restore suppleness as it minimizes redness. 
I have reviewed this mask on past Month in Masks posts - it is a rinse off mask (or you could leave it on as well) and it is a  moisture mask. My skin feels great using it, but I don't think it's anything special. 
Repurchase: Maybe, but probably not....

Timeless Truth Caviar and Collagen Elastic Mask

March 4
Timeless Truth Caviar and Collagen Elastic Mask ~ $1.45. This mask contains Caviar extracts, Peptides, Alpha Lipoic Acide, and Hyaluronic Acid.

This mask was from a past Mask Genie Pouch. This mask didn't have any extra essence in the package but the mask was absolutely drenched! There was so much essence it was goopy and it went everywhere, making it hard to wear. It fit decent, but didn't have enough tabs to fit really good. 
Repurchase: No

the face shop real nature honey face mask

March 5
The Face Shop Real Nature Mask "Honey" ~ $2.00. Get radiant and illuminated skin in an instant with this Honey Face Mask. The honey extract, with its nourishing properties, reveals younger looking, invigorated skin.

Please ignore the duckface - the mask is a little big around the mouth so this is how I hold the mask up! These masks generally fit a little big, but they also work really well and are only $2! This honey one was so soothing! These last quite a while and I really liked how this made my skin feel!
Repurchase: Yes! 

Farmacy Hydrating Coconut Gel Mask - Deep Moisture (Cucumber)

Farmacy Hydrating Coconut Gel Mask - Deep Moisture (Cucumber)

March 6
Farmacy Hydrating Coconut Gel Mask - Deep Moisture (Cucumber) ~ $10.00 per mask. A supercharged moisturizing solution for dry, tight, uncomfortable skin. 

This is the third mask of the Farmacy masks - these masks are AMAZING!!! Seriously - they are this great thin gel mask that fits like a glove on the skin. This had a lot of extra essence that I applied first and these last a long time! My skin always look and feel great - this is probably my favorite splurge mask! 
Repurchase: YES! 

Ryeo:hui Ultra Hydrating Essence Mask "Pearl"

Ryeo:hui Ultra Hydrating Essence Mask "Pearl"

March 7
Ryeo:hui Ultra Hydrating Essence Mask "Pearl" ~ approx. $2. This product provides enough moisture and nutrition to skin exposed by stimulation from outside, and it's active component forms protective coat and helps moisture not evaporate to moisturize your skin.

This mask is garbage - clearly it fits terribly! It was way too big and uncomfortable. The essence wasn't great and my skin saw no benefits from this mask. 
Repurchase: No

lush oatifix mask

March 9
Lush Oatifix Fresh Face Mask ~ $7.95. Few things are more soothing than a big bowl of banana porridge, all sweet and squishy. Did you know the same is true for your skin? Sensitive, dry or irritated faces love Oatifix for its calming oats, softening mashed banana and ground almonds to slough away flaky skin. Keep in mind that dry skin doesn’t just occur in the winter! The sun can be equally harsh, as UV rays penetrate the dermis and heat can leave you feeling tight and dry. Use Oatifix year-round on sensitive, dry skin in need of nourishment to keep it flexible and soft.

I put up a detailed review about this mask on a Wine and Mask Wednesday here. This mask smells like cookie dough - soo good. It is a lot thicker than most of the Lush masks I am used to, but it was good because it didn't try to hard and was easy to rinse off. It made my skin feel good! I really liked this! 
Repurchase: Yes

the face shop real nature mask aloe

March 10
The Face Shop Real Nature Mask "Aloe" ~ $2.00. Your skin will be soft and supple in a couple of minutes with this Aloe Face Mask. The aloe extract, with soothing properties, offers softness and hydration to skin.

Again, the Real Nature masks are such an easy go to for $2. This one felt great on my skin and was cooling and moisturizing. It fit decent and had the right amount of essence. I liked how it made my skin feel and look! 
Repurchase: Yes 

Face Q Luffa Oil Control Mask

Face Q Luffa Oil Control Mask

March 11
Face Q Luffa Oil Control Mask ~ $1.06 ($10.60 for 10 masks). Luffa Oil Control Mask is a mask with both calming and whitening effect. Enriched with natural luffa extract, the active enzyme can remove dirt and impurities in your skin, enhance skin metabolism. Barley extract can also soften skin, leaving your skin smooth and supple after use. 

This mask is from a Beauteque Mask Maven pouch and is a Taiwanese brand. This mask fit well and had a good amount of essence on - it adhered well and lasted quite a while. This did make my skin feel clean and refreshed.
Repurchase: I would like to try other masks from this brand, but yes.

Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask

March 12
Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask ~ full size is 60 ml for $131.93 (this sample is 10 ml for $21.98). Black Rose Cream Mask offers the skin "instant youth". Rich in active anti-aging ingredients (Black Rose, Padina pavonica, and Alkekengi calyx extracts), it immediately gets to work on signs of fatigue and leaves the skin looking youthful and energized. It brings together three actions to restore a luminous complexion and redensified skin in just 10 to 15 minutes: a smoothing and plumping action, a revitalizing action, a softening and hydrating action. Deliciously scented with rose, this soft, creamy mask creates a moment of relaxation and pleasure.
I have reviewed this mask a while ago on a Wine and Mask Wednesday - you can see that post here. This is a rinse off cream mask - you apply a layer and wipe off the excess after 10-15 minutes. I found there wasn't much left to rinse off. This mask is good and makes my skin feel good! 
Repurchase: Mmm.. probably not for that price (but I will happily use this sample)

Juara Skincare Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Facial Mask

March 13
Juara Skincare Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Facial Mask ~ sample size 0.34 oz for $4.19 (full size is 3 oz for $37).

March 14
Innisfree Skin Solution Mask "Lifting" ~ $1.99. An unbleached, pure cotton mask made with collagen to make skin firm and supple.

I love the Skin Solution masks - they have the best material! The unbleached cotton feels amazing on the skin. This fits well and has the perfect amount of essence. The lifting one felt great and worked well. My skin looked good after using and felt great. All of the masks in the Skin Solution line are some of the best inexpensive masks! (Get them when they are buy 10, get 10 free!)

March 18

This is a repeat from earlier in the month - the Lush Fresh Face Masks only last a couple f weeks as they are made with all fresh ingredients!
Repurchase: Yes

March 20
Juara Skincare Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Facial Mask ~ sample size 0.34 oz for $4.19 (full size is 3 oz for $37).

The green tea face mask helps to preserve your complexion and even prevent photoaging, the most significant source of wrinkles. Rich in antioxidants, the green tea mask helps to protect your skin from the damaging effects of pollution and free radicals. It is deeply moisturizing and helps to condition your skin.

This mask was from a Beauteque Mask Maven and was a thicker style of mask than I normally prefer. It had a decent amount of essence but the mask just did not adhere well to my skin (I think it is from thicker style of mask). It was just okay. 
Repurchase: No

Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Mask "Strawberry"

March 23
Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Mask "Strawberry" ~ $1.62 CAN. Get supple and translucent skin with the strawberry It's real squeeze mask!

I featured this mask on a Wine and Mask Wednesday - you can see the full post here. This was my first time trying the "It's Real Squeeze" type of mask from Innisfree - the material wasn't as good as the "Skin Solution" series, but it was still good (the material is a little fragile so you have to be delicate - I ripped mine). The mask fit well and had a good amount of essence. I liked it overall. 
Repurchase: Yes, likely 

Inoface Real Natural Pulp Essence Sheet Mask

Inoface Real Natural Pulp Essence Sheet Mask

March 25

These masks are composed of highly effective skin soothing, moisturizing, and firming agents and are suitable for all skin types and for all 4 seasons.

This mask is from a past Memebox - it had a weird smell I couldn't place and I had to get my husband to figure it out for me (it smells like vicks vapor rub). This mask was too thick and did not have enough essence. It didn't adhere well and it was slightly tingly on my skin. I didn't like this overall. 
Repurchase: No

March 26
Bio Republic Skincare Green Tea Detox Purifying Fiber Mask Set ~ $4.83 per mask (set of 3 for $14.50 US). Gone are the days of attacking our blemishes with harsh chemicals and scrubs. These days, we prefer to kill ’em with kindness. These spa-worthy sheet masks are infused with natural green tea extract and plant collagen to give skin a boost of healing antioxidants while removing excess sebum (the oily residue that clogs pores). With smooth, nourished skin like this, we’re never fighting dirty again.

Again, a repeat because I have to use this mask up - it was good! 
Repurchase: Yes! 

Much improvement from last month - I had 23 days of wearing masks (but a few days were repeat masks!) I'm happy that I improved my mask wearing this month, but my goal for next month is to have a better variety of masks!
