When I was in 8th grade, I would be so excited when my older sister would let me do face masks with her. I would copy her every move and carefully pull my hair out of my face and apply the charcoal mask all over. When I was in high school, my friends and I would have spa nights during which we used self-heating face masks while watching whatever chick flick was popular at the time.
I bought the Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask about a year ago when I first learned about Glossier, at which time I promptly bought the mask, skin tint and moisturizer (reviewed here and here). Immediately after applying the mask, I experience a cooling, soothing sensation. The mask is lightweight, but very moisturizing at the same time. That, combined with the amazing scent make the 20 minutes with the mask so relaxing. After rinsing it away, my skin is very smooth, hydrated and even looks more plump.
The Ole Henriksen Lemon Strip Flash Peel is a one-step natural acid peel that removes dead skin cells, soften fine lines and reduces the appearance of fine lines. I have used this peel semi-regularly over the past few months and I definitely notice it does an amazing job getting rid of dead skin cells which leaves my skin noticeably brighter. Does it reduce pores and fine lines? Not that I see, but other reviews claim it does! One word of caution, it does sting when used, so if you have sensitive skin, you may want to use it for less time initially.
