It’s been awhile since I chat about skincare on here. Like, truly went in depth and shared with you why I don’t typically switch up my skincare routine often, if at all. But let me say, IF and when I do add new products to my regimen, it’s gotta be good. I mean, everything I talk about or promote is going to be stinkin’ good – and I’m going to support it 100% – but with skincare, I’m even more specific. Not only cus it’s my delicate, sensitive skin and it’s basically me bathing in it…lol but also I’m implementing something new into my daily/nightly ritual and I want it to be effective and really wow me.
Masques (or masks), mini facials, spa-like vibes…all my fave! Now, typically, I am SUPER picky about my masques and the ingredients they contain. If I’m gonna leave something on my skin for 15-30 minutes, it had better be darn good! So, you can imagine how happy I was when I received this lovely Monee Cosmetics Seaberry Hydration Masque, which is packed with antioxidants – blueberry, cranberry, Oregon grape, seabuckthorn, bayberry and cayenne – to help fight free radicals.
This masque is unique because it doesn’t harden, it’s quite thick and velvety – oh, and it can even be used as an exfoliant after letting it sit on your skin for 15 minutes or so (with the natural fibers that are found in it). Another great thing to note is the inclusion of glycolic acid at just 5% which gently exfoliates and reveals brighter, more radiant skin. Peptides and hyaluronic acid plump the skin and deliver moisture at a higher level – LOVE that!
I really enjoy using this mask after I cleanse my face before bed, it just feels so luxurious and hydrating on my skin – plus it smells to die for! I’ll apply a generous application, let it sit for 30 minutes (I get a slight tingly feeling – which means it’s working its magic, so don’t fret!) and then I’ll wash it off with warm water, and warm damp cloth. My skin feels amaaaaazing, and SO soft and supple afterwards. What I love most about this masque, besides its benefits and clean ingredients (made from 99% natural and 70% organic ingredients)….is its amazing scent. I honestly don’t even know how to describe it, other than intoxicatingly wonderful – so you’ll just have to get it for yourself and see (smell)!
