November 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 November:
November 9
Maskingdom I Wish "Happy Birthday" Face Mask ~ $7.00. Spread the love of sheet masking and bless your loved ones with sheet mask from the Maskingdom I Wish series. Each mask contains natural extracts to care for their skin, and wishes to touch their heart. With each blessing, sheet masking can make the world go round! Each mask is made from 100% natural Japanese silk, both thin and form-fitting to deliver an abundance of moisture and nutrients deep into your skin.

I was really excited to try my first Maskingdom Mask - they are a T-beauty mask and can be a little hard to find in Canada (although, now that asian beauty brands are really trendy, they are a lot easier to find!) I used this one for my 30th birthday and featured it in a more detailed post for Mask Wednesday - you can check it out here. I really liked this mask! 
Repurchase: Yes - I need to try more kinds! 

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

I really love the Innisfree Skin Solution masks - the material of these masks is probably my favorite (that's a big feat!) The unbleached cotton mask feels amazing on the skin. This fits well and has the perfect amount of essence. The lifting mask felt great and worked well! 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!)
Repurchase: Yes! 

November 16
Sexylook x Disney Princess Intensive Care Black Facial Mask "Belle" ~ $4.00. Natural extracts and active ingredients help detox and clarify the skin. Pure cotton mask absorbs dirt and excessive sebum while deeply moisturize and brighten your skin. Rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to moisturize and whiten skin. Promotes skin regeneration for healthier moisturized skin.  

I can't resist anything with a disney princess on it! And this is a black sheet mask - I love these! I featured this on a Wine and Mask post and you can check it out here! I thought it worked well and really moisturized my skin! 
Repurchase: Yes, I have more to try too! 

November 21
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! 

November 24
The Face Shop Real Nature Bamboo Face Mask ~ $2.00. Get younger looking skin and an even complexion with the Bamboo Real Nature Face Mask. The hydrating and purifying properties of bamboo make it perfect for fighting the first signs of aging.

I always consider The Face Shop Masks to be my go-to inexpensive masks - if I'm not sure what else to use, I will grab one! They make my skin feel good and last for quite a while. They are easy to find so I always have a stash. They do fit a bit big but work well. 
Repurchase: Yup

November 27
Cosrx Holy Moly Snail Mask ~ $3.00. Calling all snail lovers! This mask boasts a nourishing formula to restore moisture deep into the skin. The anti-oxidant properties of Red Ginseng and the reparative properties of Snail mucin makes this mask a perfect choice for bringing out the natural glow of your skin! Suitable for all skin-types. Made with 100% rayon fibers.

I am a fan of Cosrx - I have really enjoyed most of their products that I have tried so I had to try this snail mask (I love snails - it's just an ingredient that works well on my skin)! I also featured it on a Skincare Sunday post that you can check out here! This worked great to hydrate and brighten my skin - I really liked it! 
Repurchase: Yes

For November, I only used 6 masks - I can't believe it. My poor skin has been suffering because of it and I really need to step up my masking game!
