My face mask collection

If you've been with me for a while you know that lately I've been interested in face masks. So I've been trying out quite a few for over a year already and I think I now know what I like and need from a face mask.

The main thing about face mask for me is that I need to see/feel instant results after using it. If I don't see or feel anything special after using a mask, I'm not going to keep trying it out.
Is it the same for you?

So here are the masks I currently use. I mainly have two types of masks - ones that are suppose to clear out my skin and ones that are soothing/moisturising.
I do have some that I have tried and didn't like so if you'd like me to explain why I didn't like them, leave a comment below.

Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2-in-1 Wash/Mask - you can use this product as a daily face wash to help reduce spots or as a face mask to purify and unclog pores. I never use this daily as a face wash because my skin is usually clear and I don't need that kind of active acne treatment so often. But I like to use it as a mask because you only have to keep it on for 5 minutes. It clears my skin and if I have a developing zit, it calms it down and therefore it heals quicker. It can also be used as a spot-treatment. Very nice express mask when you're in a hurry. If you want to know more about this mask, please read Ruth Crilly's (A Model Recommends) blog post on it, she's just so much better in explaining things and this post was the reason I got this mask :)
Queen Helene The Original Mint Julep Masque - this was the first face mask in a very long time that I tried and I instantly fell in love with it. I have a full review on it HERE and it made it to my 2014 favourites. It clears my skin, makes my large pores less visible and is very easy to use. And yes, I still have the old packaging which I actually like more than the new one :)
I got mine from iHerb.com (LINK). If you haven't ordered from iHerb before, use code LWH786 to get up to $10 off your first order.
Avon Clearskin Pore Penetrating Black Mineral Mask - seems like this is my current favourite clearing face mask. I wrote a full review on it HERE. I can see and feel instant results with this mask - my skin is clearer and as the previous ones this one also calmed down developing hurtful zits. Love it a lottttttt :)
United Exchange Nu-pore Collagen Essence Facial Tissue Masks - I got it recently in my latest iHerb haul and haven't used it yet but I hear that tissue masks are a cult favourite :) This pack has two masks in it - Fresh Aloe that's firming, moisturising and elasticizing and Cucumber that is moisturising, soothing and purifying. I will let you know how I like them once I've used them. At the moment this product is available at iHerb (LINK) as a trial for only $0.50 (regular price $2.95).
JOIK Radiance Improving Cranberry & Black Currant Face Mask for dull and lifeless skin - I'm not a big fan of masks that I have to mix my own but it's very easy with this one. You just need one spoonful of mask and one spoonful of water or milk/herbal tea/natural yoghurt. It feels nice on the skin, doesn't dry it out, does make it feel cleaner and soft and once it dries it becomes a bit gritty which makes it a great face scrub. 2-in-1 product :)
NOVexpert The Repulp Mask - this is supposed to be express anti-aging care for all skin types. I like to use this mask at winter when my skin is dull, dry and exhausted. I remember that the first time I used this mask last winter I was in awe! My skin loved it so much! Will definitely use it again when the weather gets cold and it's perfect for more mature skin all year round :)
Natura Siberica Active Organics Anti-fatigue face mask - unfortunately I can't find a link to this product. I've used this only once and I haven't made up my mind yet so I will let you know soon. I think that for my combination skin it's more suitable for colder seasons :)
Oriflame Love Nature Restoring Peel-off mask for stressed skin - there is something very satisfying in peeling off this mask. My skin feels hydrated and soft after using it :) Another one that I mainly use during autumn/winter :)

Do you like face masks? Which are your favourite?

Viimase aasta jooksul olen ma kokku ostnud päris palju näomaske ja arvan end nüüd teadvat, millised maskid mulle meeldivad ja millised mitte. Üks, mis kindel - kui ma ei näe/tunne kohest efekti pärast maski kasutamist, siis ma rohkem seda ka ei proovi :)

Hetkel on mul kasutuses 8 maski, millest kolm on puhastavad ja ülejäänud rahustavad/niisutavad, mida kasutan enamasti külmematel aastaaegadel.

Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2-in1 Wash/Mask - tegemist on kaks ühes tootega, mida saab igapäevaselt kasutada näopuhastuseks või siis harvemini kiirmaskina. Mina seda igapäevaselt ei kasuta, sest mul ei ole nii rasune ega probleemne nahk. Küll aga meeldib mulle seda maskina kasutada kui on arenemas mõni punn või tahaks lihtsalt kiiruga maski seda - nimelt tuleb seda näol hoida vaid 5 minutit. Saadaval enamikes poodides, mina ostsin enda oma Rimist ja maksis see umbes 6 eurot.
Queen Helene The Original Mint Julep Masque - selle maski kohta kirjutasin SIIN. Väga mõnus mask, mis on efektiivne naha ebapuhtustega võitlemisel. Ostsin enda oma iHerb'ist (LINK). Kui sa pole varem iHerb'ist tellinud, kasuta koodi LWH786, et saada oma esimeselt ostult kuni 10$ allahindlust :)
Avon Clearskin mustade mineraalidega mask - siiani minu kõige lemmikum puhastav mask, mille kohta kirjutasin pikemalt SIIN. See mask on tihtilugu Avonis soodukaga, mil selle võib kätte saada alla 4 euroga. Hetkel kehtivas kataloogis on see veidi kallim, kuskil 5 euro ringis.
United Exchange Nu-pore Collagen Essence Facial Tissue Masks - selle maski sain oma viimase iHerb'i tellimusega ning proovinud ma seda veel ei ole. Tegemist siis toimeainetega niisutatud kangaga, mida tuleb nahal hoida ja siis eemaldada. Pakis on kaks maski, üks aloega ja teine kurgiga. Annan kindlasti teada, kas tegemist on väärt kraamiga :) Osta saab SIIT kõigest 0.50$ eest.
JOIK Jõhvika ja mustsõstra mask tuhmile ja elutule nahale - muudab naha pehmeks ning maha pestes tekivad justkui väikesed terakesed, mis toimivad ka koorijana. Kaks ühes toode :) Kirjutasin sellest  ka SIIN. Osta saab seda SIIT.
NOVexpert The Repulp Mask - kui ma eelmisel talvel seda taastavat maski esimest korda proovisin, meeldis see mulle väga. Niisutas, muutis naha pehmeks ja rahustas seda. Kindlasti mask, mida just talvisel ajal kasutada ning küpsemas eas daamidele. Osta saab SIIT.
Natura Siberica väsimuse vastane mask - ostsin selle maski oma sõbranna emalt, kes käib neid Venemaalt toomas, seega ei leia ma ka selle maski kohta ei täpset nime ega linki. Proovinud olen seda korra ja ma ei oskagi hetkel seisukohta võtta, kas see mulle meeldib või mitte. Proovin korra veel ja siis on näha :)
Oriflame Love Nature viinamarjadega kilemask - selle maski eemaldamises on midagi nii mõnusat, et just sellepärast meeldib see mulle väga. Nahk on pehme ega kisu pärast selle kasutamist. Kirjutasin sellest veidi ka SIIN. Osta saab SIIT.

Kas oled mõnda neist maskidest proovinud? Milline on sinu lemmikmask?

  1. Olen Sinu blogi lugenud juba kaua, aitäh, meeldib väga ja alati midagi uut ja huvitavat. Aga- minu inglise keel pole üldse hea... Sellepärast meeldiks mulle ikka eesti keeles lugeda. Kui aga olen siin ainuke selline, siis jätka loomulikult inglise keeles. Aga üks jälgija-lugeja vähem. Kindlasti jätka blogimist ja kõike ilusat Sulle ! :)
