Mask Monday | Bath and Body Works 'Cool As A Cucumber' Face Sheet Mask

Are all sheet masks the same?

From the Bath and Body Works website: "Fragrance: Cucumber & Aloe Extracts. 

Overview: Our calm & cooling face sheet mask with cucumber & aloe extracts is designed to infuse your skin with supercharged ingredients. Put your freshest face forward with this light, cooling mask. Trade your dry winter woes for skin that glows! 

Usage: Apply mask to dry, clean face for 10-15 minutes. Remove mask and massage excess product into skin. 

More info: Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water. Face masks are designed for one-time use only."

This package contained less product than the Boscia Hydrogel Mask so it wasn't a hassle to get it on. It actually fit my face pretty well.

After the suggested time I removed the mask and massaged the product residue into my skin. Let's say 10 minutes passed...my face felt very sticky. I gave it a few minutes more but after that I had to wash my face. These sheet masks would be great pre-makeup because the glycerin - second ingredient listed - would assist the foundation in adhering to the skin.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua, Eau), Glycerin, Ethyl Hexanediol, Butylene Glycol, Betaine, Carbomer, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Ascophyllum Nodosum Extract, Angustifolium Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Fruit Extract, Hydrolyzed Elastin, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside, Sodium Hydroxide, Fragrance (Parfum), Sodium Hyaluronate, Disodium EDTA.

The scent was nice and since fragrance is listed pretty far down the list I wouldn't worry about it unless you have super sensitive skin. The price - $8BDS - is the most attractive thing about this product. As I mentioned earlier, it could be incorporated into your makeup routine if you have the time.

This is not something I would purchase simply because I'm yet to find a sheet mask that impresses me.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

Purified Lactic Acid: One of the most hydrating Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Lactic Acid exfoliates the surface layers of t…

It's A Dupe!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.

Can you tell which is which? No? Well, neither can I.
