Skincare Sunday - THEFACESHOP Lovely Me:ex Waterful Grapefruit Mask Review

You guys probably already know, but I am a sucker for cute packaging - and k-beauty brands just know how to get me! 

 THEFACESHOP Lovely Me:ex Waterful Grapefruit Mask Review

The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex Waterful Grapefruit Mask ~ $12.00 in Canadian stores (a little lower online). A sleeping mask pack with fresh juicy grapefruit to moisturize, revitalize and hydrate tired dry skin. 


Seriously, how cute is this packaging?! Of course I want to use a sleeping mask that looks like a little monkey!

 The texture of this products is very cool - it is almost like a jell-o texture! This is an overnight mask so to use, you apply it as the last step of your night-time skin routine and allow to absorb in to your skin overnight. Wake-up in the morning and wash off with your usual morning routine. This mask has a light citrus scent to it - which I like!

 I really enjoy using night masks overtop of my regular moisturizer at bedtime - I rotate through a few different ones about 3 or 4 times a week. I have dry skin and I find my skin in the morning always benefits from an overnight moisture boost! 

Sleeping masks are generally quite a concentrated formula, so a little goes a long way! (Ignore how much I put on my hand in the next picture - I went a little crazy, but you need less than pictured for your full face!)

Overall, this sleeping mask is decent. You can see it turns really watery on the skin and it absorbs well so it doesn't feel like you are sleeping with a big thick layer of mask on your face! 

I noticed an improvement to my skin's moisture levels the following morning when I wore this to bed. It worked well and it is an added moisture layer at bed time. For me, this wasn't the greatest sleep mask - I do have a couple that I prefer more; but, this mask is still regularly in my routine and I think it is pretty good! Plus, it's adorable. 

I like how The Face Shop is really making k-beauty more accessible, I know in Calgary we don't have a huge k-beauty shopping selection, so I love trying products from them!
