Facial Mask is one way of cleansing, moisturizing and hydrating your face skin. You don’t have to schedule for facial wash or spa which is costly and time consuming. Using Face Mask is not only inexpensive, it takes only 10-15 minutes of your time while you can relax and do some other works. One thing I love about these masks is that you can take them with you anywhere, no need to pack all those beauty bottles.
I am currently using Facial Masks from The Face Shop. I totally love them! And, its part of my beauty regimen for a year now. It has different flavors, from cucumber, olive oil, rice, aloe vera to pomegranate. I am using this Mask twice a week, or depending on how my face skin behaves in a week. 😉 The mask sheets is soaked in serum, it’s a bit watery and messy when you put onto your face, but I don’t mind it as long as its performing well on my skin. You can feel the coolness of the sheets, then it tightens up after few minutes. You can actually feel that the serum essence goes deeply onto your skin. I usually keep the mask for 12 minutes and I peel off, and sleep with a soft, smooth and bright skin.
So far, I have only tried cucumber & pomegranate and it works for my skin.

Cucumber helps reduce the appearance of dark circles especially on the eye area. So having cucumber essence on face mask is Love… 🙂 yes, it has the cucumber smell but its light, and doesn’t irritate my face at all. I don’t see any redness on my face too, plus it leaves my pores tighten a bit.

Pomegranate helps reducing skin aging caused by sun exposure, wrinkles and fine lines. So having all these in one face mask, one would be very happy using it more than thrice a week. 😛 the mask has fruity smell and a bit strong for me. The serum essence is also a bit sticky compared to cucumber, but it gives the same soft, smooth skin. It hydrates my face skin and somehow it reduces the underlying wrinkles on my eyes. 🙂
