I am a masker that’s all there is to it. Somewhere along the line I became enamored with masks of all kinds. Give me a sheet mask and I’m happy. Give me a mask in a tube or jar and I’m going to have a ball. I love what they do to my face and my spirits. They are a quick way for a pick-me-up and they have wonderful benefits. This month I’m featuring two mask companies that sent me masks that you need.
ToGoSpa masks aka Treatments have been favorites of mine for years. I have a collection of the Under Eye Treatments to use whenever I need some plumping and help with fine lines. There are now 4 versions of Eyes ToGoSpa but this was my first experience with the coconut ones.
These masks have so many benefits:
- Improves circulation and stimulates production of new, youthful skin cells.
- Relaxes, calms, and pumps up moisture-retention levels to new heights.
- De-puffs and reduces dark circles with skin-brightening ingredients.
- Relieves irritation and redness calming compounds.
- Minimizes pores with clarifying, cleansing oils.
- Hydrates crepe-like skin and resurfaces fine lines.
Eyes by ToGoSpa in Coconut Eyes are probably the most hydrating of their eye collection. There are 3 masks in a package ($12.50 but $10 on Amazon) and are worth every cent. Using a pair before a night out is a delight. My wedding anniversary is coming up and I’ve saved one set to use that day to make my husband appreciate his “bride”. They call these their staycation masks since they’ve added Coconut Extract which gives this a tropical gentle aroma. Adding Allantoin helps with the moisturizing. I love how my under eye lines are softened and look rejuvenated for at least two days.
Not only did I save one of the eye treatments but I’ve also saved one Lips by ToGoSpa to help make my lips look more kissable. So far ToGoSpa just has these in Coconut but I’m sure they’ll expand the line once everyone finds out how wonderful these are and the benefits of them.
Lips by ToGoSpa are perfect for date night or everyday use. They help with dry lips or chapped lips as well as making your lips look fuller and more moisturized. I’ve used them prior to wearing a matte lipstick and noticed a nice difference since my liplines weren’t as prominent and my lips looked plumper. Give yourself 20 minutes and you’ll appreciate the combination of natural high-density marine collagen, enzymes, amino acids, natural marine minerals, trace elements, proteins and vitamins.
COCONUT LIPS – Purified Water, Chitosan, Sea Algae Extract, Collagen, Coconut Extract, Cellulose, Hyaluronic Acid, Magnesium Phosphate (Vitamin C), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Vegetable Glycerin, Allantoin, Lavender Oil
These are activated by your body temperature and shortly after application you’ll feel them getting softer and more pliable. The nutrients are stored in the lip mask and release as you are lying comfortably savoring your spa experience.
Lips by ToGoSpa contain hyaluronic acid, vitamins C & E, are cruelty free, and contain no dyes or parabens. You really will love what these can do for your lips. In the warmer weather I’m going to put them in the refrigerator before using.
I can’t forget about a sheet mask and like to do one on a weekend morning. Hada Labo Tokyo Ultimate Anti-Aging Facial Mask is making my special time a great ME time. I have long used several products from Hada Labo Tokyo and think it’s a great line. I often recommend their hydrators and moisturizer. Well now I can recommend their Ultimate Anti-Aging Facial Mask too.
There are 4 masks in the box so you’ve got weeks of pleasure using them. When I’m looking at anti-aging products I’m always thrilled to see Hyaluronic Acid as a main ingredient. These have “super” hyaluronic acid so I’m especially thrilled about that. “Proprietary combination of 3 types of Hyaluronic Acid. Powerful hydrator and skin plumper that provides multi-layer, long-lasting moisture to restore and strengthen skin’s natural hydrating levels.”
This is a cotton fiber mask that is absolutely loaded with serum. They say they use a full bottle (0.7 oz) to help with hydration and firmness. Each mask is very wet so I wear a nightgown or old tee shirt when I’m going to use one. They don’t drip down my face but I like to lie down to keep all that goodness on my face. Keep it on for 10 – 15 minutes and don’t rinse after. You may want moisturizer and sunscreen but you’ve got your dose of serum to spread around your face already.
I think this set of 4 masks is very reasonably priced at $14.99 but even better is that Target and Amazon have them for $7.39 which is the best price ever. Recommended use is 1 to 3 times per week, my use has been once a week. I’m very happy that these are fragrance free.
As a mask aficionado I’ve just shared with you 3 of my favorites. If you haven’t used these yet, I’m not sure what you are waiting for!! — Marcia
