#MasqueSundays -- Laneige Water Sleeping Pack: All the Benefits of a Facemask Without the Scary Face

Image
I love face masks and sheet masks, but wearing them...well, it's not my cutest look! Laneige to the rescue! They have developed the perfect skincare treatment for you (and me)! The Laneige Water Sleeping Pack is INVISIBLE, so you and I can apply the mask without feeling self-conscious about how we look while we are getting beautified!  What does it look and feel like? Is it really INVISIBLE? It is lightweight and clear. It's gel-textured similar to a serum. Once it has dried after 15ish minutes, it's practically untraceable.  The  80ml jar  will also give you some bang for your buck because a little bit of it goes a long way. The sweet sales woman at the Korean cosmetic store gave me a sample packet when I was trying out some BB cushions. I was quite surprised how little the 4ml packet was, but was even more surprised to find that the contents inside were more than I needed!  What are the benefits of this mask? The Laneige Water Sleeping mask works on

#MasqueSundays: Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque

Image
A couple weeks ago, healthdesigns.com sent me a package with a bunch of awesome goodies, including, one of my all time favorites -- Queen Helene's Mint Julep Clay Masque. I am no stranger to the Mint Julep mask. It's one of my favorite drugstore masks!  (Actually, the Mint Julep Masque was the inspiration behind Masque Sundays. It's been my go-to mask for years!)I love to use it straight out of the shower when my face has been cleansed, and my pores are open. When I'm done, my pores feel less clogged, and skin is cool, brightened and smooth! The best part about the mask is that the 8oz. tube is less than $5!! The tube lasts me at least 10 treatments. It's available at many online retailers, including healthdesigns.com ,  which has it for only $3.51! Get $5 off with my promocode  "mshealthyface" So, that means it's free, and you can get other goodies, too!!!!  TIP Here's a great tip to make cleaning up after a snap! To make remov

#MasqueSundays - Cel-Derma Ideal Radiance Hydrogel Mask

Image
Two weeks ago, for #MasqueSundays, I treated myself to the Cel-Derma Ideal Radiance Hydrogel Mask,   aka the Hayumi Mask. Apparently, this is the #1 selling facemask in Korea. This mask promises to: Diminish wrinkles Firms skin/lifting Recovers skin barriers/pore care Increase moisturization/nourishment Whitening/Brightening What’s it like? This facemask is clear (as opposed to white), and comes in two pieces. The instructions ask you to apply the pack’s top section over the center of eyes, and the bottom section over the center of mouth. When you first open the package and slide of the mask, you are immediately confronted with the slimy and gooey Hydrogel, which this facemask is so known for. The hydrogel is supposed to be temperature-activated and water-soluble. Basically, the heat from your skin allows the hydrogel to, essentially, melt into your skin, and all the beneficial ingredients, too. When you put the mask on, it feels like it is sucked to your face. D

#MasqueSundays - Psy Ceramide Sheet Mask

Image
Everybody needs to take time out to pamper themselves a little bit! It is hard with our busy schedules, but if you mark a certain time once a week, or every two weeks, or even once a month, your soul will thank you! Last night I gave myself 20 minutes ;) I put on my silly Psy Ceramide Sheet Mask, marked my timer, and hung out with hubby, and watched "Swamp Pawn" >_< He's very much into shows relating to the swamp....#duckdynasty #swamppeople...you know... lolz The mask was pretty impressive. It had a light, perfume-y scent. Definitely not overpowering, at all. It was felt fresh, and cool on my just washed skin. Actually, my skin was feeling a bit drier than usual, and so I was looking forward to the ceramide's hydrating effects. What is Ceramide ? First, our outer most layer  =  epidermis,  and the top layer of the epidermis = stratum corneum (SC). The SC is super thin, but is super important as it is the main barrier of the skin. It keeps chemicals tha
