Taking a break from stressful everyday life is essential. I enjoy to combine my me time with a little bit of beauty care. Sometimes the time is missing for an extensive beauty program, but the new face masks and skin care products, which I was allowed to test, also offer a solution here.
I tested face masks of different Brands like Shiseido, Glamglow, Yves Rocher, Sephora, Zoe and I am – during the last weeks I personally tested all of them and would like to tell you more about the individual products today.
Glamglow – Instamud 60-Second Pore-Refining Treatment
Let’s start with Glamglow’s fastest mask it’s the Instamud 60 Second Pore Refining Treatment. One free minute is enough for this mask. It is a bubble mask after application the bubbles develop. The mask is easy to apply and leaves the skin super soft – not dried out. A great care Quickie for in between.
Glamglow – Waterburst Hydrated Glow Moisturizer
Although not a mask but also by Glamglow is the Waterburst Hydrated Glow Moisturizer – just after the 60 Second Pore Refining Treatment it offers the perfect care on the go. After this combination, the skin feels cleansed, pampered and moisturized. The Waterburst Hydrated Glow Moisturizer is an ultra-light, water-based cream that instantly moisturizes and lasts for up to 72 hours – a lot of care in a short amount of time. It contains a triple hyaluronic acid complex, water from the volcanic Jeju Island and a TEAOXI® Blue Nymph Lily Extrac. Apply the moisturizer in the morning and in the evening.
Shiseido – WASO Purifying Peel Off Mask
For years I have not used peel-off masks anymore, why? Most of them did not have an effect but stuck to the skin all the more. When I received the new WASO Purifying Peel Off Mask from Shiseido for testing, I ventured back to a peel off mask again. And I do not regret it. It is the first peel-off mask, which is easy to apply and can be removed without residue. It counteracts irregularities in the skin tone, such as pimples or blackheads, by removing sebum and dead skin cells and is free of mineral oils. For this it contains extract of the red sesame leaf, which promotes a pure radiantly beautiful skin.
Apply the mask evenly to the pre-cleaned face and allow to dry. Then it can be easily removed. You can, for example, apply locally only to your problem areas such as nose or chin.
Shiseido – WASO Beauty Sleeping Mask
Beautiful overnight? This is the concept of the new WASO Beauty Sleeping Mask by Shiseido. The moisturizing gel mask is based on the yuzu citrus fruit, the extract of yuzu seeds promotes the production of hyaluronic acid, so that the skin can store moisture better. Even after a short night, the skin looks fresh and refreshed. In addition, a combination of selected ingredients counteract blemishes and enlarged pores. The gel mask contains small capsules, they melt when applied and provide moisture during the night. The scent of the mask is also very pleasant. I love the feeling the mask leaves on the skin in the morning.
ORIGINS – Charcoal Honey Mask
The first mask I tested from Origins made me a big fan right away. The Charcoal Honey Mask by Origins contains activated charcoal and honey. It has a wonderful, luxurious texture and can be applied very well. Also the feeling on the skin during the application is very pleasant. The mask clears, cleans the pores and draws toxins from the skin and nourishes the skin at the same time intensively. As a result, the skin does not stretch after use – on the contrary, it feels well-groomed. The scent of the mask results from a mixture of 100% natural essential oils of clove, rosemary and spearmint. The mask is also very productive. A clear buy recommendation.
AHAVA – Mineral Mud Mask
I also tested for the first a face mask by AHAVA. The Mineral Mud contains mineral-rich, naturally clarifying mud from the Dead Sea. In my opinion, it is particularly suitable for greasy and blemished skin. I would not recommend to use the mask on very sensitive skin. I don’t have sensitive skin – but the mask is very intense. The mask cleanses the skin intensively. Afterwards I like to use a moisturizer or mask to calm down.
Yves Rocher – Gesichtsmasken & Peeling
I also tested masks and a scrub by Yves Rocher. There you will find the masks in 30ml tubes, these are enough for 2-4 applications and can be closed after use. A great idea for all the multi-masking fans among you – then you can easily tune the application to the specific needs of a particular face area.
The masks have very different textures as you can see. The Radiance Mask is transparent and intended as an energy kick for a pale complexion. The invigorating properties of sea buckthorn act on the skin and make it radiate. The Renergize moisturizing mask moisturizes with agave juice and regenerates the skin intensively. The cleansing mask mattifies the skin beautifully and is really recommended for impure and oily skin. Now one of my first beauty products – the gentle exfoliation with apricot kernels, was one of my first scrubs, which I had brought as a teenager at Yves Rocher. In the meantime the formula has been overhauled – I still like it.
ZOÉ Expert – sheet masks
You like it uncomplicated? Then you will definitely like the new masks of ZOÉ Expert. The Clarifying Black Mask by ZOÉ contains activated carbon particles and is therefore suitable for impure skin. It clears the skin and cleanses it. The mask feels slightly cool when applied, but it keeps very well and adapts easily to the face shape. This also applies to the ZOÉ Expert Hydra Mask. It contains algae extract and hyaluronic acid. Especially in winter, the skin likes to dry out – that’s where the moisturizing organic cellulose mask comes in handy.
I am face masks
Super practical are also the new face masks from I am – like ZOÉ a brand you find at Migros. I was allowed to test these three variants:
- Purifying Mask, a cleansing mask for normal and combination skin. It is very effective, but it is less suitable for sensitive skin.
- Instant Radiance, the perfect mask for a glowy complexion. This gel mask actually always fits – even if it is just not the big care program. You can put them in the fridge for the special freshness kick beforehand.
- Hydrating Mask, also a lightweight gel mask for a radiant skin. It also feels very pleasant on the skin and looks very mild but effective. The skin is wonderfully moisturized.
Sephora – sheet masks
Do you already know the combination of cloth and bubble mask? I have tried it for you. Lay the cloth mask on your face as usual and it starts to “work” – during the application, you can feel the bubbles as in a normal Bubblemask. After application, the skin feels fresh and looks fresh too. The Mud Mask of Sephora, on the other hand, is perfect as a preparation for an event, clubbing and co. I use it after cleansing the face and before I start applying make-up. The mask mattifies the skin and prepares it for the make-up – I like it.
I hope I could give you some input in choosing your next face mask 🙂
