May 2016 Month in Masks

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

For March and April I was really good about using masks at least every other day - I didn't do as great for May, so I will hopefully do much better next month! 

Here is a look at all the masks I used in May:
the face shop character mask pig
May 1
The Face Shop Character Mask - Pig "Moisturizing" ~ $4.00. This moisture radiance character mask provides deep moisture and radiance deep into the skin with honey rich in vitamins and minerals. Dermatologist Tested & Formula without 6 additives (Sulfate, Talc, Mineral oil, Quarternium, Polyacrylamide, Paraffin).

If you have followed me for a little while now, you will know that I love scary and hilarious masks (they are usually animal masks)... they are so fun! I posted a full review about this mask on a Skincare Sunday (you can see it here), but I actually thought this mask was really good and was super moisturizing! 
Repurchase: likely...

keratin socks mask

keratin gloves mask

May 2
Keratin Gloves & Socks ~ $9.98. Treat yourself to a spa sesh right at home! Developed by Bodipure Inc., Keratin Gloves & Socks are a waterless, all-in-one hand and foot treatment that strengthens nails and moisturizes skin with the benefits of keratin. Whether you're at home or on-the-go, these babies give you the easiest mani-pedi treatment ever. 

I received this in a FabFitFun box, and also did a little further review on a Monthly Pedicure/Manicure Monday post - here! The foot masks were HUGE, but I thought they did a really good job at adding moisture to my feet. The hand masks were okay, but the effects didn't last very long.
Repurchase: No, probably not... 

Skin Soop Paeonia Lactiflora Oriental Therapy Sheet Mask
May 4
Skin Soop Paeonia Lactiflora Oriental Therapy Sheet Mask ~ $?. The basis for this mask is "Paeonia Lactiflora" which is basically the root of an Eastern type of peony. Paeonia Lactiflora is said to have antioxidant qualities which reduce inflammation, heal dark spots, soften and moiturize the skin - it is common in Chinese Traditional Medicine. (sources - here and here).

I really wish I knew more about this mask - I received in a subscription and cannot find much about it online. I did post a full review on Wine and Mask Wednesday about it here, but I wish it was easier to find because this made my skin feel great! I was a touch tingly on my skin, but not in a bad way! 
Repurchase: If I could find it, I would! 

tony moly rice sheet mask
May 6
Tony Moly I'm Real Rice Mask Sheet Clear Skin ~ $4.50 ($9 for 2 at Sephora). This sheet mask treatment is infused with natural rice extract for radiant, clear skin. Perfect for all skin types, it moisturizes, brightens, and instantly invigorates your complexion. 

I generally like Rice masks, but I couldn't get over the scent of this one - it was so strong! It's funny actually I have a past review of this mask on a previous Month in Masks post and it says I loved the smell and that it reminded me of fresh laundry. So, I used to like it, but don't enjoy the scent anymore! It had a good amount of essence and did work to brighten my skin! 
Repurchase: Maybe... probably not though.

the face shop 3-step programming kit brightening and soothing

May 8
The Face Shop 3-step Programming Kit - BRIGHTENING & SOOTHING ~ $5.00. This at-home kit for clean, fresh skin does it all. It exfoliates, soothes and moisturizes your skin.

This was a new mask for The Face Shop so I had to pick it up and try it right away. There seems to be a theme to this post - I reviewed this on a Skincare Sunday post, so you can check out the full review here! This mask contains a spot treatment peel, a pre-mask serum and then a sheet mask. The mask came with a lot of essence and lasted well over 30 minutes on my face. I thought this mask made my skin feel really great and I could see visible results the following morning for brighter and smoother skin - it delivered! 

avene eau thermale soothing moisture mask juara tumeric mask
May 10
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. 

This is a wipe-off mask, but I generally leave it on for extra moisture and my skin absorbs it quickly. I have featured this on the past 2 Month in Masks posts, so I'm actually a little shocked at how long this little sample has lasted for! I do like this mask and it does make my skin feel more supple. 
Repurchase: Maybe, I will decide when I'm done this....

May 11
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!

I loooove this mask - it makes my skin look and feel amazing!! I have done a full review of this mask before - you can check it out here. It is a wash off style mask so you apply and layer and let it sit for a while - this one warms the skin and feels a little tingly (but not in a bad way) and you rinse it off, or you can user it as an overnight mask. Again, LOVE how my skin looks after this! 
Repurchase: Yes! 

essfolio gold mask

May 13
Essfolio Gold Mask - Gold Essence ~ $2.47. Containing Colloidal Gold, this sheet mask is great for alleviating stressed skin by adding elasticity and nutrition. 

This mask fit really weird on me - it was too small on my forehead, but then too big on the sides of my face so it was just strange. This mask had a lot of essence and lasted a long time on my skin. It did work well, but nothing special with how poor the fit was.
Repurchase: No

togospa eyes - green tea

May 15 
ToGoSpa Eyes - Green Tea ~ $12.50 for a pack of 3 pairs. Rejuvenating. Lift and revitalize your eyes for a youthful appearance with Green Tea Eyes. 

These are some of my favorite eye gels - they last quite a while and made my eyes feel great. They are soothing and reduce puffiness! (An extra bonus, you can put them in the fridge first).
Repurchase: Yes, once I get through all of my sets! 

mirum green tea hydrating and moisturizing facial mask
May 16
Mirum Green Tea Hydrating and Moisturizing Facial Mask ~ $0.99 (10 for $9.99). This is a sheet-type mask containing green tea extracts. The excellent moisturizing effect will improve dry and tired skin by leaving it smooth and vibrant. This hypoallergenic mask sheet stays attached to the face along with the natural skin texture. Provide a soothing comfort for your skin.

I received this mask as part of a blogger freebie review - this is a honest review. I thought this mask had a good amount of essence and fit fairly well on the face. I found the essence absorbed quickly and did not last very long. It was okay, I didn't think it was amazing...
Repurchase: No

sexy look hydrating black face and neck mask

May 18
Sexy Look Hydrating Black Face + Neck Mask ~ $4.99. This Sexy Look mask maintains the moisture balance in your skin by hydrating and controlling the production of sebum. Great for all skin types!

I received this in a past MaskGenie pouch, and I really love the black sheet masks - they are quite scary and hilarious to wear! This one was a little different and has a neck piece that covers under the face as well. This mask had a ton of essence and I thought it fit pretty well. Overall, my skin felt good after using this, but I'm not sure it was $5 a mask great.
Repurchase: Likely not... there is comparably good masks for less money! 


May 21
Urban Dollkiss Welcome to Korea Skin Solution Mask ~ $2.24 (7 masks for 14000 won/$15.72 CAN). Fermented horse placenta and Portulaca Oleracea, Centella asiatica, a variety of organic extracts and ingredients of propolis. Given the moisture balance given to help relieve skin problems and stress, soothes the skin gives Lotus Phyto Plage septo culture extracts the moisture and nutrient supply secondary The solution mask pack to cultivate a comfortable and given help to clean the skin.

These money masks have such funny packaging - I will hand it to Urban Dollkiss for always having fun looking products.  I was however, not a huge of the fit at all. It was quite big and loose on my face and just didn't stay in place well at all. This was hard to wear and hard to judge the results because I couldn't keep it on very long! 
Repurchase: No

shara shara baby hand and nail mask
May 23
Shara Shara Baby Hand and Nail Mask ~ $7.70. This hand & nail sheet that contains herb complex which gives moisturizes and nourishing dry hand & nail.

I used these after my serious long weekend clean-out! These are expensive masks and were sent in a Mask Genie pouch. These were pretty big on my hands but lasted a long time (like 30 minutes) and did make my hands feel really good! For $7 each though, I'm not sure they were that amazing!
Repurchase: If I saw them for much less somewhere...

Seriously, if you love sheet masks and have not yet tried a silk mask, I would suggest that they are a must! They feel so luxurious on the face!

Repurchase: Yes 

seatree ice fresh mask sheet

May 28
seatree Art Ice Fresh Mask ~ $2 (10 masks for $20). Icy essence absorbs loose skin to make it moist. Marronnier extracts offer assistance to your skin care and supply abundant moisture to dry skin in order to soothe exhausted skin.

I got this in a past Mask Genie pouch and it was okay - I thought the fit was a little weird. It was a little small in some places and a little too big in others. Just strange all around... the mask had a decent amount of essence but did not adhere great to the face and didn't last very long. Overall, I wasn't impressed with the fit or the results.

For May, I used 17 masks which is pretty good - I think I used the most non-face masks this month too, so that's good! My goal for June is to use a few more though! 

Any masks you were loving this month?
