Review: Sephora Rose Mask

I love stocking up on face masks for fall and winter. My skin needs a little extra TLC because the weather dries it out. I’ve been on the hunt for new face masks that will leave my skin hydrated, clear and refreshed.

I recently purchased the Sephora Rose mask from their collection. Their bold display in the shop definitely catches your eye. Each color mask serves its own purpose. The rose fiber mask is used for ultra moisturizing and brightening.

Now that it’s fall, I’ve noticed my skin has been dry and dull. I picked up three masks to try over the course of three weeks in order to treat my skin. It’s currently my third week using this mask, and I’ve noticed a huge improvement in my skin.

I almost wish I took before and after pictures throughout the three weeks because there is a visible difference in my skin. Although the mask is $6 (I usually don’t spend that much on face masks) it is well worth the price!

I would recommend talking to an employee and allow them to help you determine what your skin needs most. This way, you’ll find the mask that will benefit your skin the most. At first, I didn’t think there would be a huge difference if I chose any mask, but your skin type and skin problems can affect the results of your mask. They have eight different masks that can be used to treat skin differently, so depending on your skin type and what your skin needs will determine the mask you’ll buy.

The two ingredients that really target your skin are the rose and rice extracts, which help with¬† moisturizing your skin and the broccoli extract, which gives a radiant appearance to skin.¬† Throughout the three week period, I noticed that my skin felt more bright and hydrated. So, if you’re suffering from dull, dry skin, I would pick this up on your next shopping trip.

My Morning Skin Care Routine

Morning Everyone! Today I wanted to show you guys my morning skin care routine and give you guys a few tips on how to keep your skin clear throughout the summertime.

I believe simplicity is the number one rule when it comes to healthy skin. I never enjoyed using seven different serums on my face to keep it clear, or use multiple acne treatments at one time. This defeats the purpose of clear skin; adding several pounds of gunk to your face to make it glow will NOT keep your skin healthy.

That’s why I wanted to share my morning skin care routine; to show that clear, healthy skin can be achieved by using only necessary products. And, it’s nice if you’re on a budget because you will save money if you only have a few select items to buy. Another win-win situation.

When I wake up, I wash my face immediately because I hate the feeling of dirt and oil trapped in my skin. I have been using Cetaphil gentle skin Cleanser for over two years, and I can honestly say that it has kept my skin clear of acne. I use two pumps of the cleanser and wash my face thoroughly with cool water, not necessarily cold, but enough to wake you up in the morning. Next it’s important to pat your face dry with a towel. Never rub your face against a towel. This can irritate your skin and leave you with red blotches on on face.

Everyone has those select few items that they splurge on. I prefer to use drugstore makeup, but when it comes to my face, I am willing to spend the money if it is a quality product.

For example, my two luxury products are from Estee Lauder. First, I apply two pumps of the, Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher. This is a great product for minimizing pores. I always apply this before I apply my moisturizer because it’s a great base for my skin. My second Estee Lauder product is the, Day Wear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Cream. This daily moisturizer is great for my skin because it’s SPF 25 and also oil-free.

I have been using the same three products for my morning skin care routine for over two years, and I think that using two or three quality products on your skin is enough to maintain it.

Other Tips To Keep Your Skin Healthy:

  1. Drink plenty of water throughout the day, especially during the summer months.
  2. Get some vitamin D (a.k.a SUNLIGHT!)
  3. Stick to a simple, everyday skin care routine.
  4. Always remove makeup at night. This is my most important tip!
  5. Eat a clean, healthy diet filled with fresh foods.

I hope you all enjoyed this post. If you have other suggestions of future posts, don’t hesitate to let me know. Have an awesome Tuesday, everyone!
