I had to work really hard to write today’s post for you. Imagine how difficult it is to wear a soothing steam eye mask and relish in quiet for 10+ minutes and then apply a probiotic milk balancing mask with a gentle fragrance and calming feel. I know you feel for me. Of course you do. Luckily for you though these two products are easily available for you to indulge in yourself.
Each month I try to write about the Mask/s of the Month and I’ve been saving the MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask and FarmHouse Fresh Organics WILL Dew Probiotic Milk Balancing Mask to share with you. Perfect timing since Makeup Wars has chosen to highlight favorite at home spa treatments. These two masks have made my October days, many of them stressful, much more relaxing and deserve this honor.
I’m a mask lover and include them as often as I can without overdoing them. The MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask has proven to be one of the most relaxing eye masks I’ve used. It’s totally different too than the many others I have. There is no mess with this easy mask so it’s easy to use at any time of day or night though I’ve only used it when I don’t have eye makeup on.
The box contains 7 masks that don’t activate until you tear it open to use. Don’t open it until you are ready to use it since as soon as you remove it from the packet it will begin warming up.
My advice is to apply it near your bed or couch because once it’s on your eyes are covered and you can lay back and enjoy 10 minutes or more of calming relaxation. They are easy to open and it doesn’t slip down since it has ear straps. As you lay back you’ll feel the temperature rising but never to an uncomfortable temperature.
When I’m using one I notice the heat and a slight damp effect. When I take it off I realize that it’s been steaming my eye area and it’s damp but not slimy. It’s just the steam.
After I’m done masking my eyes look and feel relaxed. There’s no magic but there is a feeling that my eyes are less hollowed out and smoother. It’s the perfect way to relax and do yourself some good. It’s available in 3 varieties on Amazon: Unscented (my choice), Lavender, and Citrus for only $10.99 for the pack of 7 (bringing the cost down to $1.57 each). MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask is a treat you’ll all love.
There’s no masking the fact that I love FarmHouse Fresh products and my newest acquisition is the FarmHouse Fresh Organics WILL Dew Probiotic Milk Balancing Mask. Talk about a soothing mask and this FHF product will be the first on your mind.
This wonderful organic mask is free of synthetic herbicides, pesticides, and GMOs. It’s also paraben- and sulfate-free like all FarmHouse Fresh products. What makes this unusual is that this nourishing mask uses probiotic coconut milk. It combines prebiotics along with the probiotics and certified organic rice extract. Plus there’s sweet almond oil which is “full of essential fatty acids, particularly linoleic acid, that can help maintain the skin barrier and decrease transepidermal water loss, reducing dryness and the look of wrinkles.”
That’s just about everything that my skin is looking for. As someone who’s fussy (obnoxiously so) about fragrance I can tell you that this is delightful – coconut with a touch of almond! Really?? How could it not.
It’s a very light feeling mask that is moist while on your skin and leaves it with a wonderful glow. It can be left on for as long as you like since it doesn’t dry down or crack. Since it’s so nourishing it can be used as often as you like. There are 14-18 applications in the jar ($40) and after 6 uses I can say I’ll easily get 18 out of it. It’s available on Amazon and Farmhouse Fresh’s website. While I have many masks and love my FHF ones to pieces I WILL buy this one again because I love to look like I have younger skin. Will you Dew this one?
