Happy Hump Day, y’all! I am getting excited, finally haha My hubby comes home Wednesday to help get out daughter moved back to school and my truck is ready! Not exactly sure which I’m most excited for, at this point hahaha He’s been working out of state since the end of June, and he’ll be going back a few days after we get her moved … sigh … pretty bummed about that, honestly. We gotta do what we gotta do sometimes, even if we don’t like it. That’s one of the things about adulting that I don’t love. Ah well, I am also elated to be getting my truck back. My transmission went out, then my distributor went haywire and this time, my spark plugs were a mess, likely a result of the distributor. The repair guy (a longtime family friend) said it runs like a totally different truck now hahahaha I am going to assume that’s a good thing.
I also got several deliveries today … YAY! In one of those deliveries, was a whole box of skin care from Ulta! Sometimes, Ulta and Sephora take forever, to process and ship my orders. I have no idea why, but I placed this order on the 11th. Not too bad. Anyway, I had forgotten what I ordered, so it was quite a treat to open the box and find this guy, begging to be reviewed tonight haha
I was more than happy to oblige! I have never purchased a peel off mask in a tube. It’s always been the one use packets, not that they are all that different. Then only difference is I can use much less when it’s packages like this. When I’m using the one-time use packets, I really feel like I have to use all of the product (no matter how much is really in there), so that it doesn’t dry up and go to waste.
For starters, this smells amazing. Definitely fruity, but not sickly sweet kind of fruity. You can pick out the berry and the pineapple. It also has some interesting ingredients: actual blueberry fruit, coffee, morinda citrifolia, also known as cheese fruit (lol, whatttt?), mangosteen, pomegranate, tea leaf, and açai. WOW!!! This mask is chock full of botanical, superfruity goodness! It says it will reveal “super soft berry smooth skin”. Let’s just see about that …
To begin with, I used significantly less that I usually do, simply because of the packaging. This resulted in a much thinner coating on my face. I’m not sure how I felt about it being thinner, and may use more the next time I use this one, to see if it makes any difference.
It’s a sheer lilac color, and smells incredible. It goes on just like normal peel-off mask and the instructions say to leave on 10-15 minutes, or until dry. Mine dried fairly quickly, except for my forehead area. That took a bit longer, for some reason. Removal was pretty standard, except it said to rinse thoroughly with warm water. Is that standard with peel off masks? Hmm lol for the life of me, I can’t recall! Now, was I moisturized?
Umm … maybe. My cheek area, below my cheek bones felt a bit dry initially. That may have been from rinsing with warm water, really. After waiting an hour or so, my skin does feel quite hydrated. Is my skin “berry” smooth? It didn’t magically remove texture, but my face does feel quite nice. Maybe with multiple uses it will work on my texture? That would be cool, and I will be paying attention to that, the more I use this.
I really like this one. The price was fair ($7 at Ulta), the smell is pretty awesome, and my skin feels pretty nice. I’m looking forward to seeing what repeated uses will do for my skin! Do you have a favorite peel-off mask? Lemme know all about it!
