Masque Bar Rose Gold Foil Sheet Mask, a review

It’s the foil that makes it better!

I am a sheet mask junkie, hydrogel and bio cellulose being my favorite. So when I saw the Masque Bar foil mask display at CVS, I had to check it out. The new line has three different types of masks; gold, silver and rose gold. Each element comes in two variations, a foil sheet mask and a peel off mask. The peel off mask is available in a single use pod or a tube.

I decided on the rose gold foil mask made with soybean, witch hazel and mushroom extracts, designed to nourish and hydrate skin. The mask actually has paper on the inside – a foil only mask would probably slide right off!

Which brings me to what is so wonderful about this mask – the foil keeps your face warm! Most sheet masks can freeze your face off, making you want to remove them before they have served their purpose. The foil layer in this mask pulls the heat from your body making your face nice and toasty. Now, I used it in the spring, I’ll have to see what happens when I try one in the summer. It could get too hot. I have already bought another one (silver), but I’m not a fan of the peel offs. You can find them at CVS and I usually pay little to nothing for them with coupons and rewards bucks. Amazon (I may get a commission from this link) is also carrying them.

 

No April Fools, Serovital is 50 percent off

Serovital-hgh will be 50 percent off during ULTA’s 21 Days of Beauty

In between hunting for eggs and enjoying Easter Brunch, you’ll want to head over to ULTA for a big sale on the hgh booster Serovital. On Sunday, April 1 Serovital hgh will be priced at $49.50 for a 30 day supply instead of the regular $99 retail price. This is the best deal I have seen on the product since I started using it in 2013.  The ad does specify any limits on purchase, so if you really love it I would get as many as you can.  All ULTA deals are usually available on the website as well – her is the link.

Serovital is supposed to naturally boost your body’s own hgh levels that dip with age. The boost gives you more energy, improves sleep, skin and mood. You can read my review here.

 

Pantene Foam Conditioner, a review

Pantene Foam Conditioner, $5.99

My hair is in the category of fine and thin, so when I saw this foam conditioner in the store I decided to give it a try.  The Pantene Foam Conditioners come in six variations that match other Pantene product lines. I like the Classic Clean line so I bought the foam version.

To use the foam, shampoo first and then dispense a palm full into your hand. Work it through your hair from root to tip and rinse. I found the foam easy to dispense and apply, but it was hard to tell if it penetrated all the hair.  When I dried my hair it kind of felt like when you go to a hotel and use that tiny bottle of conditioner. My hair was straw-like in certain patches and didn’t feel anything like when I use regular Pantene Conditioner.

Pantene released these foam conditioners about six months ago and they are still trying to get them to catch on. They might work better for someone with shorter hair or people that really don’t like thick conditioners. Right now you can get a buy-one-get-one free coupon that work on the foams and the micellar shampoos and conditioners at PG&E and coupons.com.

Formula 10.0.6 Get Your Glow On Skin-Brightening Peel Mask, a review

Formula 10.0.6 Get Your Glow On Skin-Brightening Peel Mask, $6.99

I have wanted to try a peel mask for awhile and now I know why I didn’t. This mask was a disaster for me. Formula 10.0.6 is a relatively new brand that can be found in ULTA, CVS, Target and other retailers. The line includes facial skin care products like moisturizers, toners, cleansers and masks.

I grabbed the Get Your Glow On Skin-Brightening Peel Mask because it was on sale and I wanted to try a peel mask. I cleansed my face and went it for the kill. First off, it’s hard to spread the mask on. The consistency is kind of like rubber cement and the translucent color makes it hard to see how thick/thin you are applying it.

Once I thought it was applied thoroughly, I waited for it to dry. The tube says 10-15 minutes, but it was probably a little longer (I also live in a humid climate). It was hard to get off, and definitely did not come off in one big piece. There were little patches that I couldn’t get off and when I tried to use water, it gummed up again! I even tried a cleansing wipe without much success. Suffice to say I couldn’t tell you how the mask treated my skin because I was too focused on taking it off. Later on in the day there were still little pieces of mask peeling off.

I’m not going to blame my misfortunes on this brand. I’m sure I would have similar results with another brand and peeling masks Just aren’t my thing. If I do try one again I will get something dark and deep like those black charcoal (I may get a commission from this link) masks.
