Hello my lovelies!
If you didn’t read last month’s Facetory blog post, I highly recommend giving that a quick gander before reading this month’s mask review. Despite the fact that Facetory sends the mask package very late toward the end of each month, I have taken it upon myself to keep reviewing this amazing subscription box nonetheless. With that in mind, please remember that these masks are technically for the month of January, however I used them in February. This trend will continue for the rest of the monthly mask review posts.
Let’s Get Started:
FaceTory Moon Velvet Moisturizing Cream Mask –
Despite being a cream based mask which tends to make me nervous, I really enjoyed using this mask right before getting some shut eye. Since this mask features shea butter and sodium hyaluronate, both smoothing and water-binding ingredients, it is no wonder that I woke up the next day with amazingly soft skin minus all the breakouts typically associated with cream masks. Big thumbs up to moon velvet.
DAF V7 Vita Pearl Mask –
This brightening mask had some very high moments, but a fairly disappointing finish. I love a little three-step mask action, and while the cleanser and actual sheet masks were amazing, the final whitening cream left a lot to be desired with its ultra thick texture and lack of blendability into the skin, leaving a white cast. With pearl extract to brighten, Inositol to bind water into the skin, and Niacinamides to improve the skin barrier, this is overall a great three-step mask set, I just wish the moisturizer would have been more blendable.
Coscodi Propolis Blanc Cell Mask –
Right off the bat within the name of the mask itself, this mask contains propolis, an anti-inflammatory ingredient that also soothes and brightens, which this product 100% delivered on. In combination with water binding Trehalose, my skin looked radiant, healthy, and well hydrated after using this mask. It was without a doubt one of my favorite masks in this month’s box.
Blooming Cell Pink Peel 2-Step Mask –
A two-step mask, this peel featured one of my favorite AHAs, Lactic Acid in the toner pad, as well as anti-oxidant rich and anti-inflammatory Green Tea extract and Honey extract in the mask, respectively. I love a good quality at-home peel treatment, and this mask delivered in a subtle-yet-effective way. The lactic acid exfoliated my skin and helped reduce my active breakouts, while the two extracts soothed and hydrated my skin to create a wonderful combination of active cell turnover and hydration. This mask was also a favorite out of the subscription box for the month.
Rael Beauty Lab Tea Tree Fresh Forward Mask –
Naturally, anything with Tea Tree and other antiseptic ingredients is going to be high on my list, and this mask was no exception. Also featuring Centella Asiatica Extract, an anti-aging and anti-inflammatory ingredient, this mask calmed and mattified my oily and acneic skin while also delivering much need antioxidants to help protect the skin barrier and fight off future acne producing pollutants. This mask would be great for anyone with sensitive and acneic skin, as the ingredients are effective yet soothing and non-irritating.
Elensilia IntraCELL Escargot + Caviar Repairing Mask –
This is definitely the most luxurious mask of the bunch given the ingredients, and likely very effective for aging skin. Although I did enjoy feeling like a queen while using this mask, my skin is naturally oily and therefore dryness and aging aren’t heavy concerns for me. In spite of that, this mask is objectively very beneficial, featuring Glycosaminoglycan, a repairing, brightening and moisturizing ingredient, and Caviar Extract, which not only sounds expensive but helps to slow the aging process and prevent collagen breakdown. There is no way you wont feel rich using a mask like this.
Banobagi Vita Cocktail Foil Mask – Brightening –
This mask takes first place for being the coolest one of the bunch. While the mask is the standard sheet material on the inside, the outside features a silver foiling, definitely protecting you from all that government mind control happening around here. This mask features brightening and soothing ingredients like Niacinamides and Adenosine, making this the perfect mask to improve the overall appearance of the skin while also soothing and nourishing the face.
