Health and Beauty, MaskMonday

#MaskMonday Review 3

Happy Monday everyone. After a whirlwind weekend,  I was actually really looking forward to tonight’s mask to help relax as I watched The Bachelor. (If you’ve been watching, can you believe the whining already??)

Anyway… Tonight I tried another one of the Yes To masks. If you remember, I tried a paper version of their masks in review 1 that I wasn’t in love with, so I figured I’d give their clay version a try. I am a big fan of clay masks in general because I feel like they really hydrate your skin. I’ve also been using my new Clarisonic Mia 1, so I wanted something less shocking to my skin.

I decided on the Cucumbers Calming Mud Mask (order it HERE or find it at your local Ulta Beauty). It comes in a little pouch, which I felt like you really needed to rip completely open to get all of the mask out.

A few highlights:

  1. It’s really easy to apply – The mud in the package is pretty easy to get out if you pull the entire package open (see picture). But the mask goes on smoothly. It
  2. My skin feels more hydrated than I thought – I definitely can feel the hydration, which is great. I was worried that I would want to put lotion on my face since it’s so dry out, but my skin is keeping the moisture in from the mask.
  3. I could move my face when I used it! – This is huge. Some clay masks harden to the point it hurts, but this one didn’t.

Some things I didn’t love:

  1. The Smell – It wasn’t offensive, but it didn’t have that fun cucumber smell like I assumed it would.
  2. It took a LOT of water to wash off – Most masks wash off with a bit of warm water and some rubbing. This one took a bit more effort, which was surprising because it didn’t feel that thick on my skin.

Overall, this is a great mask for beginners or someone who wants something low maintenance. Something to keep in mind is it costs around $4, but you only get one application. Some of the other mask types that come in jars can seem a bit more expensive, but your price per mask is lower.

I would say, overall, I give this mask a 7/10.

Next week, I’m going to review one of my go-to masks for Spot Treatment!
