Wine + Mask Wednesday - Christmas Themed!!! (Homemade Mulled Mead and THEFACESHOP Rudolph Character Mask)

It's Christmas Eve Eve and I'm getting excited for Christmas to come!! This week's theme for Wine and Mask Wednesday is Christmas!! 

Here is my Christmas Mask of the Week:
THEFACESHOP Rudolph Character Mask

THEFACESHOP Character Mask - Rudolph ~ $4.50 US. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is not the only one with a ruddy windburn on his face! Give your skin a break with this soothing mask. The character face mask formulated with Gotu Kola (known as Tiger's soothing herb in Korea) moisturizes and soothes sensitized skin.
I got this as an addition to an online order, but this mask is not available on the Canadian website and I have not seen them in store either! How perfect is this for Christmas?! I frequently use The Face Shop masks as they are affordable and accessible! 

This mask is applied like most others: wash face, tone skin, apply mask and leave for 10-15 minutes, remove mask, pat in remaining essence and complete skincare routine. Here is a look at the mask on:

The fit of this mask is really great on my face - I'm actually impressed with how well it fits! And the color is so bright and awesome! Also, it had a good amount of essence on the mask and lasted for about 15 minutes on my skin. I liked the way my skin looked and felt after using this! I will repurchase something fun like this next year as well. 

Now to pair with my Christmas mask, here is a Christmas wine (Or mead, for this week):

I can't tell you much about the Mead - my husband actually makes it from scratch (no premade kit or anything, all done by him). I'm not generally a huge Mead fan myself, but when he mulls it for the holidays, it is good!! To mull it, pour the mead in to a pot and add sugar in the raw, navel oranges, and a clove or two. Let is heat up on the stove, but don't bring it to a boil or anything! 

I'm a big fan of Mulled Mead - the oranges really come through and make it taste really good! If you don't have Mead, you can always mull wine too for a warm festive drink for the holidays!
