June 2017 - 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

Here is a look at the masks I used in June:

June 2
Beauty Clinic Mediheal Snail Aquaring SOS Mask ~ $4.49 CAN. "Dr. Post" Snail Aquaring SOS Mask is a special moisturizing clinic system which intensively manages skin which has been damaged by dry environment containing hydration building ingredients such as Snail Mucus Components. Also it has a synergy ampoule booster which is used specially before applying masks and skin dryness is relieved by using Prunus Mume Fruit Water instead of water.

This mask is my FAVORITE - like holy grail level mask! I reviewed this mask in the past and you can check out my review here! This leaves my skin soooo hydrated and amazing feeling! Plus it clears blemishes and brightens skin. Best mask ever! Hands down. 
Repurchase: Yes!

June 4 
Acure Organics Brightening Face Mask ~ $9.99 US (also, $13.99 CAN on well.ca) Brighten up your day with the power of Moroccan argan extract and chlorella, a true synergy of rejuvenation. French green clay has a drawing effect and Moroccan argan oil and CoQ10 provide moisture.

I love Acure branding and products - this says to apply until you look like a green sea monster! I featured this on a Mask Wednesday post and you can check out my thoughts here! It was a bit hard to rinse off, but this mask made my skin look and feel amazing! Also, this just made my June Monthly Favorites
Repurchase: Yes, but I still have the whole tube to use!

June 5
Sisley Paris Black Rose Cream Mask ~ full size is $225.00 (this is a sample size). The Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask offers the skin an instant youth effect. Rich in active anti-aging ingredients (Black Rose, Padina Pavonica and Alkekengi Calyx Extracts), it immediately gets to work on signs of fatigue and leaves the skin looking youthful and energized. It brings together three actions to restore a luminous complexion and re-densified skin in just 10 to 15 minutes: smoothing and plumping action, revitalizing, and softening and hydrating. Deliciously scented with Rose, this soft, creamy mask creates a moment of relaxation and pleasure.

This mask is a leave on mask - apply this and leave on for 10 to 15 minutes and wipe off any excess. This can also be used as an intensive overnight mask by leaving a generous layer on the skin overnight! This mask is so soft and soothing and smelled so good! This left my skin feeling supple and refreshed and I really liked this! 
Repurchase: While it's good, it's super expensive so probably not

June 7
Origins Flower Fusion Lavender Soothing Sheet Mask ~ $9.00. A lavender-infused sheet mask that soothes to de-stress skin.

I featured this on a Mask Wednesday post - you can see my full review here! It was nice and relaxing and the subtle lavender scent really reminded me to relax! This fit a little bigger than I prefer, but it did make my skin feel good.
Repurchase: Likely 

June 9
Skoah Hydradew Mask ~ $48.00. Our most popular mask. Chock full of oil free hydrating ingredients. Contains glycosaminoglycans (from vegetable skins), hyaluronic acid, sea kelp algae and plant extracts.

I recently reviewed this mask on a Mask Wednesday post and you can see my thoughts here! This is a multi-use product - it is a rinse off hydrating mask, but it can also be used as an overnight mask or even underneath a moisturizer as an added moisturizing step! I was really happy with how hydrated and refreshed this made my skin feel! Using this over an extended period of time, I much prefer this with my daily moisturizer as opposed to a mask! In fact, it made my June Monthly Favorites using it as a moisturizer! 
Repurchase: Likely - I will use the rest of this first! 

June 12 
Skylake Face Mask - Brightening Care ~ $3.00. This face and neck mask is infused with a high percentage of the Skylake patented oriental herbal extracts from eighteen different herbs to help minimize surface build-up while also providing clean, radiant skin with the added albutin. This mask promotes healthy, hydrated skin without the use of parabens and other artificial additives.

I really like this mask - it lasts quite a while and makes my skin feel really clean and refreshed after using. It does smell quite herbal - like Eastern medicine. It comes in 2 pieces and you apply a chin strap after the mask. Most masks don't pay attention to the neck so I like that this one does. 
I have featured this mask on a past review post here (but the first mask was not as great as the others I have tried!) The material is a little thicker than I normally prefer, but I don't mind this (it fit a little big too - you can tell)
Repurchase: Likely...

June 13
Unitouch Miss O Good Night Facial Mask ~ $7.00. Applying Good Night Face Mask is like putting on a pair of comfortable white pajamas for your face, easing the fatigue accumulated from the previous day. Upon awaking the next morning, your skin will be fully hydrated and have a luminous complexion.

I really loved this mask! It was super thin and adhered so well to the skin. The essence was slightly creamy and was well soaked. This lasted about 45 minutes on my face and made my skin feel amazing and look really great the next morning!
Repurchase: Yes!

June 14
Unitouch Miss O Outdoor Facial Mask ~ $7.00. Sunlight has a very visible effect on your skin, so after-sun protection is even more important. Thanks to the thin masks, the natural ingredients will penetrate in to your skin, relieving your sunburnt skin and restoring it to a pure and healthy condition, so that your skin is luminous from the inside out. 

I reviewed both of the Unitouch masks on a Mask Wednesday post here! This one was good too - the material wasn't as thin as the night mask, but it still fit decent and felt good. This was cooling on the skin - if you are using it for post sun care, you should put it in the fridge first!
Repurchase: Maybe  

June 16
Acure Organics Brightening Face Mask ~ $9.99 US (also, $13.99 CAN on well.ca) Brighten up your day with the power of Moroccan argan extract and chlorella, a true synergy of rejuvenation. French green clay has a drawing effect and Moroccan argan oil and CoQ10 provide moisture.

Repeat from above!

June 18
KinGirls Caviar and Grape Leaves 3D Face Mask ~ $6.00. Believe that your smile is the most beautiful and confident makeup. This unconventional mix between sweet grape and pure caviar allows this mask to bring you both the properties of caviar and the sweet scent of the grape. Caviar essence replenishes necessary nutrients. Combined with caviar essence and grape leaf extract, this mask will balance and nourish your skin, leaving you with a hydrated and glowing complexion. 

I love these 3D masks - they include this section for under the chin and it wraps around the ears. This lasted about 30 minutes but wasn't super hydrating on my skin. It did make my skin look nice but just wasn't the best mask I've used.
Repurchase: Not likely 

June 20
KinGirls Jasmine and Neroli Extract Face Mask ~ $6.00. A girl in deep thought is as focused as a mysterious blue garden. A fresh and healthy basic moisturizing model, this facial masks provides the skin with a highly moisturizing effect, giving soft and supple skin after usage.  

This mask was super soaked in essence but only lasted 20 minutes on my face. My skin felt good after using this but I'm not sure this was moisturizing enough for my dry skin! I think this wold work best for oily/combination skin. 
Repurchase: Not likely

June 20
Nuxe Masque Crème Fraîche de Beauté ~ $29. A source of well-being and immediate freshness, this moisturizing mask with Plant Milks and White Blossom provides intensive moisturization even for the driest of skins. A rescue skincare, it provides intensive relief, instantly soothing skin discomfort. Hydrates and soothes for 24 hours, leaving skin radiant.

This is a mask I have had for quite a while - I don't think this brand is available online anymore! I have featured it in a past Wine and Mask Wednesday here if you are interested. This is a lotion style wipe off mask. You apply it in a thick layer, leave it on for 15 minutes and wipe off the excess. I used this double masking for extra moisture!

Repurchase: Doesn't look like I can! 

June 21
KinGirls Multi-Fruit Extract Face Mask ~ $6.00. Comprehensive fruits (grape seed, lemon, apple). Containing essence from a variety of natural fruits, this facial mask replenishes nutrients that the skin needs, balancing and nourishing the skin, giving you translucent and resilient skin after usage. 

This was my favorite KinGirls mask - you can see my full review on all 3 masks here if you are interested! Also, the packaging is amazing! This one made my skin look bright and was moisturizing! 
Repurchase: Yes, likely... 

June 24
D.I.Y. Tea Tree Oil Mask 

You have to check out my full post on this here! But essentially this mask is a reusable mask and the essence is honey, water, and tea tree oil. The reusable mask was quite big so I will need to cut it down to wear it again. My face felt sticky for quite a while after, but the next morning it was clear and soft! I would use this again! 

June 28
Glamglow Gravitymud Firming Treatment "Sonic Blue Collectible Edition" ~ $24.00 for 0.5 oz. GRAVITYMUD™ FIRMING TREATMENT in exclusive Sonic Blue is an out-of-this-world tightening and firming mud that contains mega-targeted ingredients that work together to help skin’s contours look and feel more defined. Once dry, this innovative blue formula peels off to reveal skin that feels tighter and looks more lifted.

I had to have this mask because it was a Glamglow x Sonic The Hedgehog collaboration! I featured this on a Mask Wednesday post - you can check it out here! Okay, this mask is expensive (this size is about 2 masks) but man it was good! I didn't want to like it, but it made my skin bright! 
Repurchase: Ahhh, maybe! It's good! 

June 29
Boo Bamboo Sheet Mask "Hydrating" - Activated Bamboo Fiber Charcoal ~ $3.29 (or 3 for $7.49). Boo Bamboo's natural 100% bamboo fibre charcoal Sheet Mask is enriched with Coconut, Aloe, and Bamboo extracts which join forces to protect, soften, detoxify and moisturize your skin while leaving it with a soft radiant glow.

Another mask featured on Mask Wednesday - check out my detailed review here!!! I loved this mask - it was so hydrating on my skin and fit well! My skin was nice and soft after using this!
Repurchase: Yes! 

So, in June I used 16 masks! This is pretty good - I tried to use a few different types of masks as well!
