December 2016 - Month in Masks & Mask Empties!

Masking is a huge part (and probably my favorite part) of my skincare routine! I try to use all types of masks as often as possible as I find they really help moisturize and improve my skin! 

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 masking has really gone down hill over the past few months - pregnancy exhaustion will continue to be my excuse for now! I am still trying to pick it! Here is a look at the masks I used in December:
December 6
Tony Moly Pureness 100 Propolis Mask Sheet ~ $1.99. This gentle, non-bleached 100% cotton sheet mask soaked in glacier water and propolis extract help to soothe and repair skin, leaving it supple and healthy. 

This mask was decent - the fit was pretty good and it lasted about 30 minutes. This made my skin feel good and hydrated - just as it was supposed to do! Not a standout, but pretty good for me!
Repurchase: Maybe, if it's easy to find! 

December 10
LoveMore Bamboo Liquid Moisturizing Mask ~ $2.79. Bamboo extract has a uniform structure that allows for easy absorption and high efficiency in boosting cell renewal. The bamboo extract also contains a essential mineral, silica that helps maintain healthy skin. 

This mask came in the past Mask Genie Lovemore Special Edition Pouch. Lovemore masks are silk masks and feel amazing on the face! This fit really well and lasted about 25 minutes on my face. It was very soft and comfortable on my face! I love this brand and silk masks feel so luxurious on the skin! 
Repurchase: Yes, love these masks! 

December 14
Purpletale - 5 Steps to Lovely Skin: Complete Facial Solution ~ $8.00. When you are looking for an effective and convenient skincare solution, turn to our 5 Steps to Lovely Skin – a complete facial solution that will leave your skin feeling deeply nourished and looking absolutely lovely.

This portable five-step facial treatment kit comes with (1) foam cleanser, (2) ampoule, (3) bio cellulous sheet mask, (4) facial cream, and (5) neck cream in one neat packet so that you can enjoy facials whenever and wherever you want!  It's an absolute must for travels and/or home spas.  

This mask was really cool with 5 steps - the sheet mask itself was a very thin gel type mask that came in 2 pieces. It was actually quite hard to get out of the package and on to my face. The rest of the steps were fun, but this mask wasn't the greatest.
Repurchase: Likely not... but it is fun for a spa night...

December 21
The Face Shop Real Nature Face Mask - Rice ~ $2. The Rice Real Nature Face Mask offers you a dazzling, even complexion. Known for its brightening properties, rice extract helps reduce the appearance of age spots and illuminates the skin.

The Face Shop Rice Mask is easily my go-to inexpensive sheet mask - I have spoken about this mask probably every Month in Masks post or close to). This always brightens up my face and instantly makes my skin look better! Seriously, best $2 spent! 

Repurchase: YES, with backups!


December 27
Farmacy Hydrating Coconut Gel Mask "Brightening" (Purple Broccoli) ~ $32 CAN for 3 masks on Sephora, or $24 US for 3 on Boxycharm. This mask helps even skintone and improve overall clarity. Purple broccoli extract delivers a powerful skin clarifying action due to the varietal’s high level of antizymes, which possess antioxidant properties in addition to the benefits of chlorophyll, vitamins and minerals. 

I completed a full review on this mask on a past Mask Wednesday post - you can see that here! I have talked about Farmacy masks before on the blog, but I can repeat my thoughts -  they are AMAZING! These are a really thin gel mask, but are this amazing this gel that adheres really well to the face and last for quite a long time! These are expensive, but work so well on my skin - I use them as my treat masks!
Repurchase: YES! 

For December, I sadly only used up 5 masks! I really have wanted to use more masks recently and I plan on picking it up as soon as I can!
