Hello lovelies! I hope y’all are having a relaxing, cool weekend. I know I said this in my last post, but it’s HOT y’all!! Our heat index has routinely been well over 100°, which aggravates my health. I think temperatures like that aggravate even healthy people haha It’s just ridiculous! When it came time for my Saturday mask time, this girl was excited! My rosacea as been raging with the heat, as well, so any cooling, soothing things I can do make me a very happy camper.
I ordered this cool bioBelle mask from Ulta last week and I was so happy when it came in yesterday. I had seen people get this mask in some Boxycharm unboxings and I thought it looked really neat. So, I ordered one to see what it was all about!
This #decadence mask is loaded with chocolate and açai berry, We’ve all heard that chocolate is full of great antioxidants, and these help hydrate and soften the skin. Açai berry helps your skin retain its moisture and also helps to fight free radicals, which can be quite damaging. (Info taken from the bioBelle website.)
I loved the way this mask smelled. It wasn’t overpowering, but there was a slight chocolate scent, with a hint of something sweet and flowery. I will assume that was the açai berry. I also liked that this mask was quite thin. A lot of masks are thick, and I feel like my skin can’t breathe while I’m wearing them. Is that even a thing? Hmm … haha Anyway, the thicker masks feel pretty heavy, and they don’t want to stay in place. I also have trouble with the thicker masks fitting my face. I feel like I have an average sized face/head, but some masks just don’t want to conform to my face. I really don’t think my face is oddly shaped. Is it??? Sigh … now I’m wondering … Odd face shape or not, this one actually fit my face well. I think part of that was the thinner material.
I wore #decadence for 17 minutes and my face was still pretty red after, but it was much less than before I put the mask on. The serum is a bit sticky, but the directions do say to rinse off after removal, which I thought was different. Most instructions tell you to pat the remaining serum into your skin and to NOT rinse off. I left the serum on for a few hours, just to see what happened. Shockingly, nothing happened hahaha My face was kinda sticky for those few hours. The serum never fully penetrated, and I don’t know if that was because my skin couldn’t absorb any more, or if it doesn’t absorb well. My face feel pretty good this morning, though!
These masks are a little on the pricey side … $4.99-ish. Ulta is currently running a “buy one, get one 50% off” sale, but I don’t know how long that will be going on. Overall, I really liked this mask. It helped ease my heatwave induced rosacea flare, which is pretty priceless, in and of itself. My face looks and feel pretty good, the day after. And listen, who doesn’t want to lounge around with chocolate on their face??? Check them out, tell me what you think. The bioBelle website has a much larger selection than Ulta. There may even be some unicorn themed items …
Have any of you tried these masks before? How well did they work for you? Lemme know!
