Beauteque Mask Maven September 2018 Review
The variety of sheet masks on the market on the market have to be extremely giant. Mask Maven virtually by no means sends repeat gadgets, and I uncover one thing new each month:
The field got here with this info card. This month has a theme of “Back to Self Care.” I feel “self-care” is a Millennial buzzword with a nebulous which means (like “clean eating”) and an idea I usually don’t determine with (I’m a Gen-Xer – a late one – however undoubtedly not a Millennial), however I don’t need to be on board with the theme to benefit from the gadgets in a field since they’re all sheet masks.
JMsolution: Water Luminous Avocado Oil Ampoule Mask – Retail Worth $three
As you may anticipate, this one accommodates an avocado extract. The product web page says that avocado oil is an efficient remedy for pimples, blackheads, and pores and skin irritation. For what it’s value, this one additionally has Moringa seed oil and turmeric extract, each of that are going to have some antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties and numerous moisturizing components. However I actually don’t know what about avocado oil is meant to assist clear up the pores and skin as this isn’t an ingredient sometimes utilized in pimples-management merchandise (however then, Okay-magnificence is usually forward of the curve in that regard). This one was wonderful to make use of within the morning and didn’t intrude with make-up software afterward. I’d contemplate getting an entire field of those and utilizing a number of every week to see in the event that they actually do clear up the pores and skin, however I can’t inform after just one use.
My Magnificence Diary: Black Pearl Mask – Retail Worth $1.99
For what it’s value, the masks itself continues to be white. Like all My Magnificence Diary masks I’ve ever tried, it’s drippy, drippy, drippy. So make sure to put on an previous t-shirt or one thing whenever you use this masks, or lie flat in your again, as a result of the serum will get everywhere in the neckline of your shirt in any other case. This has a black pearl extract that the product description says is wealthy in nutritional vitamins and amino acids however in fact, whether or not there was something within the extract that may truly penetrate the pores and skin will depend on the extraction technique. This has one thing referred to as “nanospheres” and I can’t even work out what they’re product of. It additionally has an ingredient referred to as “vegetale collagen” which I feel is a typo (and anyway, there’s no such factor as collagen from crops and this isn’t vegan as a result of it accommodates, at a minimal, pearl extract).
Pearl is a standard ingredient in Asian skincare preparations for brightening and this does additionally include some plant extracts which will have a couple of enzymes that do a mild peeling. For me, this was principally simply moisturizing.
NOHJ: Deep Cleaning Bubble Mask – Retail Worth $three.25
This is among the few repeat gadgets I’ve acquired from Mask Maven. This does produce bubbles however they’re not big or uncontrolled. Nevertheless, it does imply it’s a must to rinse the serum off as an alternative of rubbing it into your pores and skin. This has a number of antioxidant-containing elements like inexperienced tea extract, orange extract, and CoQ10. The bubbles are alleged to take away sebum, lifeless pores and skin cells, and blackheads. I do at the very least really feel that my pores and skin was not oily after use but in addition not dried out.
NOHJ: Superfood Mask – Pine Mushroom – Retail Worth $1.99
I’ve not acquired too many masks up to now with mushroom because the featured ingredient. It’s presupposed to be anti-inflammatory. I don’t know as a lot about mushroom in comparison with different “superfoods” principally as a result of I can’t stand to eat mushrooms and so each time somebody begins touting their advantages I type of tune out. However, I don’t have an issue placing mushroom extracts on my face.
Along with mushroom, this has a lot of antioxidants (from lemon, tomato, and tea leaf extracts), perhaps considerably antibacterial because of the honey extract, is soothing from milk and purslane extracts and is a bit firming from witch hazel. It’s fairly scorching out the place I stay (nonetheless) and I do really feel that this was soothing (and moisturizing) however I additionally assume I observed the firming a bit bit. This one is one other one to attempt utilizing over time to see much more results.
Dr. Morita Hyaluronic Essence Intensive Moisture Eye Mask – Estimated Worth $1.70 (purchase 10 masks for $16.99)
There’s all the time one masks in Mask Maven that’s slightly uncommon or totally different, and this month it’s this eye masks, which is principally a half sheet masks. It’s from Taiwan and is the one merchandise I couldn’t discover on Beauteque’s website. Anyway, “intensive moisture” right here apparently equates to “excessive moisture” as a result of this dripped throughout my shirt despite the fact that it wasn’t touching my chin, and there was truly an excessive amount of serum for my entire face, even, once I lastly took it off. The important thing ingredient right here is hyaluronic acid, which is a polymer that holds on to a whole lot of water close to the floor of the pores and skin and should assist scale back the looks of nice strains.
Innisfree: It’s Actual Squeeze Mask – Pomegranate – Retail Worth $1.99
The merchandise description right here is tremendous obscure (and consists of “tips” akin to wash your face earlier than utilizing a sheet masks). This has grapefruit and pomegranate extracts, in addition to one other sort of citrus extract (Citrus unshiu, which I’ve simply discovered is mandarin), so you’re getting numerous vitamin C and different antioxidants right here. Antioxidants in skincare might assist to battle free radical injury however they don’t substitute for utilizing an excellent sunscreen. This can be one to make use of over time for anti-getting older advantages. It wasn’t too drippy and it match my face fairly properly.
Magnificence Pals II: Essence Mask Sheet – Raspberry – Retail Worth $1.99
I don’t have an components record for this one however will assume it has raspberry extract, so some vitamin C and maybe different antioxidants (which might go together with the “reduces wrinkles” a part of the product description). This one had a really mild fruit perfume (not irritating in any respect) and was nice to make use of earlier than make-up. (This can be a good place to notice a couple of issues about Okay-magnificence subscriptions: a., they’re usually not vegan and should include something from pearl extract to honey to snail slime to horse oil, b., they typically include parabens. Which I don’t keep away from however some individuals care about and c., you’ll be able to’t all the time discover an ingredient listing in English or in any respect, so use with warning in case you have any recognized allergic reactions).
JMsolution Water Luminous S.O.S. Ringer Mask – Retail Worth $three
You’ll typically get to attempt a number of totally different gadgets from a product line in Mask Maven and this one, as you possibly can in all probability guess from the packaging, is just like the avocado masks proven up above. I typically discover that masks from the identical product line are fairly comparable in efficiency, and that was true right here, too. As you may anticipate, this has moisturizing elements (i.e., hyaluronic acid and hydrolyzed glycosaminoglycans that are comparable in some methods to hyaluronic acid) and a good variety of amino acids and peptide derivatives. This can be a good moisturizing masks to make use of whenever you want some pores and skin hydration however you don’t need to drip throughout your garments.
My Magnificence Diary Rose Moisturizing Essence Mask Sheet – Retail Worth $1.99
That is one other repeat for me though I can’t make sure I acquired it from Mask Maven because it appears like one thing I may need bought up to now. It has a light-weight rose scent and is simply as drippy because the black pearl masks talked about above (this appears to be a function of My Magnificence Diary masks). Rose has some firming advantages though I discover it to be fairly mild in comparison with, say, witch hazel. This additionally has witch hazel, although, so it’s a little troublesome to separate out these results. There are slightly a variety of plant-based mostly components I don’t acknowledge, and in addition some typos (e.g., “polyflutamic acid” ought to in all probability be “polyglutamic acid”) that makes it exhausting to lookup elements. This has arnica and should assist to scale back redness, and also needs to have a good quantity of vitamin C from the orange and lemon and raspberry extracts it accommodates.
Verdict: I calculated a worth of $20.90 for the September 2018 Beauteque Mask Maven. That’s not the very best worth I’ve ever seen for this field, however it’s a little bit above the month-to-month value and is an effective solution to attempt particular person masks with out shopping for a 10-sheet field of one thing that you could be not find yourself liking. I had tried a number of of those earlier than however there have been additionally loads of masks that have been new to me. I appreciated the give attention to antioxidants and moisturizing components (which, fact be informed, you may say about virtually any assortment of sheet masks). Despite the fact that I don’t put a lot inventory within the “self-care” motion, I do slightly like taking 10 minutes to take a seat down and skim a ebook and use a sheet masks earlier than going to work within the morning.
