Leaders Daily Wonders Bye Bye to Dry Mask
Ok, I'm going to sound like a spoiled baby, but I'm ready for winter to be over. The cold wind and the heater being on at work & home isn't doing my skin any favors. My skin has been feeling pretty tight and parched. So when I saw "intense hydrating" labeled on this mask, I had to try it.
This mask has that typical Leaders scent (once you've smelled it once, you'll know what I'm talking about!) and also has a witch hazel scent to it too.
The mask is soaked with a thick almost jelly-like essence and adhered to my face really well for a cotton mask.
After ~40 minutes, my skin was super plump and hydrated, just as the packaging claimed! I'm a fan of this mask.
You can buy this mask from @leadersusa or at stores like @anthropologie or @iherb.

Mediheal & Line Friends I.P.I Lightmax Ampoule Mask
I've got Cony on my cheek and really can't complain about life right now 😹
This is a cotton mask that contains Vitamin C and arbutin for brightening. It has an interesting scent that reminded me of generic lotion. It has a few slits for me to customize the fit and was quite happy with the adherence.
After ~30 minutes, this mask left my skin ✨GLOWING✨Holy cow, was I impressed. I would absolutely repurchase this!
You can purchase this mask from stores like @masksheets4me, @lovepinkseoul & @gumiidotshop.

Mandom Barrier Repair Facial Mask Moist
Do you think that beautiful baby is impressed by my masking skills? I sure hope so! Shoutout to this baby for having a beautiful complexion, by the way.
A downside about Japanese skincare I've noticed is that there's very little if any English printed on the packaging. Luckily, @beautybysunrise included a printout describing the mask's features and functions. This mask contains hyaluronic acid for hydration and does not contain any fragrance, colorants or preservatives.
The mask material is thick but silky smooth and soaked with essence. There was a good palmful of extra jelly-like essence left to spread on top of the mask.
After ~30 minutes, I was really impressed with how calm and hydrated my face felt. I could almost get away with skipping moisturizer/cream!
I've been keeping backups of the @cosrx snail mask for days when my face feels irritated and I think this is another great mask to keep on hand for skin emergencies.
You can purchase a box of 5 masks for $12.99 from @beautybysunrise.

πŸŒ™Cosrx Low pH BHA Overnight MaskπŸŒ™
I've been testing this mask over the past 2 weeks and happy to say this is another winner from @cosrx! I'm already a fan of the rice and honey sleeping masks so I wasn't surprised this is πŸ‘.
Unlike the other Cosrx sleeping masks that just sink into my skin, this BHA mask is very occlusive where it seals in all the layers of skincare underneath. It has a thick balmy texture and it does contain dimethicone which accounts for it's silky texture. Because this felt so much like a silicone-based primer, I tried to use this as a makeup primer once. Long story short, I had the worst makeup day ever and will be sticking to using this at night!
I use about a edamame bean size amount for my whole face and neck. This mask has a slight tea tree scent but doesn't linger.
This mask contains 0.9% Betaine Salicylate, a BHA. I didn't think it would be strong enough to exfoliate. I never felt any tingling or stinging like I do with other acid treatments.
However, I was doing my usual oil cleansing step about a week into using this mask and noticed that the sides of my nose felt much smoother. I looked closer at my nose pores and they did look much clearer!
I will continue to use this mask through the winter & spring, but might be a little too heavy to use when it warms up.
You can purchase a 50ml tube of this mask for $21 from @cupidrop.official.

About a month ago, @memebox sent me a Valentine's Day package filled with new @nooni_official lip products! After sunscreen, my can't live without product is lip balm so these products were promptly opened and tested.
To be frank, I am not a lip oil person and will probably never be. I just prefer waxier lip products which is why @burtsbees Lip Balm (original only) and @holysnails Sheepish lip balms are my fave. However, I don't hate these Nooni lip oils mostly because they feel more lip a lip gloss rather than a slippery oil. My favorite of the oils is the Appleberry because it gives a slight tint (think Cherry Chapstick-level) and I look like I have my shit together even on no makeup days πŸ˜…
The Applebutter Lip Mask is by far my favorite product of the line and I believe it's the same as the old Apple Water Blending Lip Mask. I actually keep the lip mask at my office to prevent my lips from cracking due to the blasting heater and/or cold AC! Despite having apple in the name, the product doesn't have a scent and has a nice thick waxy texture. It's not as heavy as the Aritaum Ginger Lip Mask.
BTW, you still have one more day to enter @colebiancardi's giveaway for all 4 products! Check out her post for more details on how to enter.
You can buy these products at @ultabeauty:

Cremorlab White Bloom Triple Bright Floral Mask
Not sure what happened with @cremorlab_kr because North American retailers like @peachandlily & stopped carrying their products πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈIf anyone knows of any US or Canadian-based stores carrying Cremorlab, let me know!
Anyway, this mask claims to brighten and hydrate with ingredients like their T.E.N mineral water and lily extract. The mask has a floral scent and is made of a thin & slightly stretchy material. It reminded me of a silk mask with how thin it was.
I just like to feel like I get my money's worth in using masks which is why I usually keep masks on for an average of 40 minutes. However, for once, I followed the instructions and had this mask on for just 20 minutes.
Even after just 20 minutes of masking, I was pleasantly surprised to see my skin was bright and hydrated, just as the mask promised. I would definitely repurchase this mask... if I can find it again!

Dr. Jart+ Dermask Micro Jet Brightening Solution Mask.
At this point you're probably really tired of me talking about how much I love microfiber masks. But come on, I've been able to foam roll with me facing the floor and the mask did not budge! Microfiber masks are what I put on if I have to move around.
This @drjart mask has a milky essence and didn't have much of a scent. The mask had a stiff mesh backing to protect the mask from stretching out.
I had this mask on for 45 minutes and the mask was still very damp when I removed it. With ingredients like glutathion and niacinamide for brightening, I wasn't surprised to see a glowing complexion staring back at me in the mirror! The milky essence was also nice in keeping my skin nicely moisturized as well.
You can buy this mask for $5.99 from @gumiidotshop or $9 from @sephora... not sure why prices vary like that, but just trying to find the best deals for you!

🎭February Mask Empties🎭
I've always been impressed by fellow IGers who have the discipline to keep all the masks they use over the month. I did it for the first time in February and it took every fiber in my body to resist throwing each mask packaging out as I used them. I don't know if I can keep doing it, but will try for March.
Shoutouts to @haninibun, @sheetmaskreview & @yumsylee who frequently post their #maskempties!
As for me, I used 19 sheet masks and 2 eye masks in February. Do you ever keep track of how many masks you use up per month?

Puriface EMP Collagen Boost Mask
EMP = Eggshell Membrane Pack. The eggshell membrane is that thin layer of film you might see on hardboiled eggs (and the bane of my existence when trying to peel the eggs!) The membrane contains 80% collagen which is supposed to help soften and revitalize your skin! Ok, maybe the membrane is not so annoying to me now.
This mask has a floral/rose-like scent and is made of a super thin material that adhered SO WELL. Love a good fitting mask because I feel like it's giving every inch of my face the skincare benefits!
After ~30 minutes, I removed the mask and thought my face felt much smoother and bouncier. I kept poking my cheeks because they were so plump and bounced back immediately.
Disclaimer: I received this mask for free from @puriface. You can purchase this mask on Amazon.
