I’m a Mask Junky!

I am in LOVE with Face Masks!

I mask 2-3x a week (every other day or every 3 days). I’ve been using them since I was a teenager. They keep my skin clear, smooth and radiant. My skin is OILY but its not sensitive. I have so many different masks that I use and my face loves them!

I buy my masks from CVS-Freemans are $3.99, Madina (madinaonline.com)-Masks are $1.50-$3, The Body Shop-Masks are $15-$22, and Family Dollar- Masks are $3.

I also use African Black Soap to clean my face 2-3x a day

Here’s most of the masks in my collection.

In this video, I share more info on my mask obsession and a DEMO of how I mask.

I moisturize my face every single time I wash my face or mask my face. I use the Body Shop Mattifying Seaweed Day Cream under makeup (if Im not going to wear makeup I dont use this), When I am not wearing any makeup, I use the body shop Mattifying seaweed lotion with spf 15. I use the body shop seaweed night treatment at night after I wash.

One more thing, I drink about 80oz of water a day. That helps!

Do you mask? How often?

Which masks do you use?

    Heeeeey beautyful! You most definitely need to try bentonite clay. I mix 1 tbsp ben-clay, with about 3 tbsp of ACV (more or less). It makes my skin soooooooooooooooo soft (sorry for all the o’s but seriously, it really does). And I love what it does while the mask is on my face: no lie, it makes my face pulsate. I know it sounds absurd, but you’ve got to try this stuff!!!!! The brand I use is Aztec Secret

      Thanks love! The clay masks that I use are made with bentonite clay. Im sooo lazy and Im really not a mixtress so making my own mask is too much work. LOL

        LOL–you just measure out a little powder into a bowl, put in your liquid and mix—nothing to it.

    I have oily skin as well but, mine is sensitive. After seeing one of your instagram posts I started using the Queene Helene Mint Julep mask and omg!! I love it!! I wash with my shea moisture black soap then apply the mask && my skin feels so soft!

    Very informative info! I was thinking about trying the Queene Helene Mint Julep mask being that I have oily skin. Like Ayana, my skin is sensitive. But from her experience with it, I definitely will give it a try…..That and the Shea Moisture black soap. Can’t wait!

    I mask when I think about it. I know, I know, that’s awful but it’s the truth. I use all Murad products so when I DO mask I use their Clarifying mask from thier Anti-Aging Acne line. Great post.

    heyy, you have gained my interest in face masks. but im not sure which one to get. which one was your fave?? and this is an open question to anyone who comes across this, id really like to get a few point of views :)

    LOL I don’t think I have ever seen a person look so pretty with a mask on before. Before I went through menopause, I used to use Borghese Fango mud for face and body. It is not that expensive now (around 30.00) but when I used it only a few stores carried it and it cost almost 80.00 a jar. I used it about once a month for a few years. Now a days I use an Indian healing clay mask about twice a year. After menopause, I rarely got a pimple. I get one maybe twice a year–and as for skin glow–I eat a diet very high in raw veggies and fruit. but it brings back memories! I am going to let my youngest see this video maybe interest her in some masks, she is having a time with acne and also likes to mess with her face–ergo black spots.
