Yes To Masks Product Review

On a recent beauty haul at Target, I purchased some face masks. I’m not big on skin care, I don’t have a lot of skin issues so I try to just let it be, but I thought I would give these a go. I purchased two kinds, Yes To Miracle Oil Calm & Soothe Primrose Oil Mud Mask and Yes To Detoxifying Charcoal Paper Mask. I do have a bit of dry skin sometimes so I got the Primrose oil one, and I hate blackheads and big pores so I thought I would try the detoxifying mask.

The first one I tried was the Primrose Oil Mud Mask. It is said to help soothe skin and redness (so you can keep your cool). The instructions are,

Apply a generous amount to clean skin and let it work its calming and soothing magic for 5-10 minutes. (Feel free to lie down and close your eyes, too!) Rinse off with water to reveal your gorgeous complexion.

I liked the fact that I didn’t have to have it on for an extended period of time, I’m not patient and I end up washing it and taking it off before the time the instructions say. The mud mask is pink, which I loved, and it felt very nice on my face. The package says it’s a 1 Single Use Mask, but I think there’s enough product to try it out twice. I cleaned my face with Garnier’s Micellar Water before applying the mud to my face, I tried to do it as evenly as possible and avoiding the eye area. I set my timer to ten minutes, sat back down on my couch to watch more Netflix and waited. I know some masks feel very THERE as you’re waiting for the timer to go off, but this one didn’t. It just felt nice. After the 10 minutes, I washed it off and it felt really nice. It wasn’t an overbearing feeling of freshness but more like something soothing and comfortable. The next morning, my face still felt nice and comfortable which is nice. I definitely re-purchased it and look forward to trying it again.

The second one I tried was the Yes To Detoxifying Charcoal Paper Mask (these were not tested on the same day or even the same week). I am usually not a fan of paper masks mainly because I struggle sticking it to my face, adjusting it to the curves, and fitting my eyes, nose and mouth on the predetermined holes.  The package says,

Charcoal: a natural detoxifier and impurity remover to deep clean skin. Not just for grills anymore!

Charcoal has become a staple in skin care products. I have charcoal nose strips, charcoal soap, charcoal cleanser, and a charcoal paper mask. I haven’t done a lot of research on the benefits of charcoal, but it mainly looks like it’s just a great way to clean and purify our skin. The packaging said there could be some tingling and I definitely experienced this. It was just about enough for me to feel it was doing something as I sometimes question the effectiveness of these products. Once the 10 minutes had passed, I took the mask off and wiped some of the excesses off my face. My skin felt really nice and clean. My nose didn’t feel as smooth as I would’ve liked (this might be due to my incapability of putting these things the right way).

If you’re not a massive span of spending hours on facials, skin treatments, and other skin care regimes, I strongly recommend the new Yes To face masks. They’re affordable, they’re accessible, and they do a good job in giving your skin a break and making you feel like you’re doing something right.

  • @thrivecausemetics is killing it with these amazing releases and I am so happy to be a part of it. This is the NEW Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3. The perfect beginner palette in my opinion and the perfect palette for an everyday look. I love how it has everything you need and these are literally the shades I reach for in every palette I own. Can’t wait to start playing with it and letting y’all know my thoughts. Thank you again to #thrivecausemetics and @karissabodnar ♥️

Did you know #Thrive donates one product for every product sold? Have you tried this brand yet?
•
La nueva #paletadesombras de @thrivecausemetics está AQUÍ! Y es perfecta para el día a día. Tiene los tonos perfectos para crear una variedad de looks - estos son los tonos que uso en todas las paletas que tengo y me hace feliz tenerlos todos juntos en una paletita. Si no han escuchado de esta marca, se las recomiendo! Tiene un mensaje y una misión muy linda.
  • Are you lazy? Do you forget everything? Do you only shave exposed leg during the winter? Then you’re just like me and need to check out @sphynx - an all-in-one portable, TSA friendly razor. It comes with a spray, a shave bar, and two razors. They’re all refillable which was my main concern when I received it, but it is so effective. I am not sure if I’d find it practical for a full shave, just because it is really bulky, but if it’s the winter and you missed a spot of exposed leg, this is such a good solution! Thank you to the @yccagency for the opportunity to test it out ♥️

Les mata la pereza? Se les olvida todo? Solo se rasuran lo que queda expuesto de la pierna durante el invierno? Entonces son como yo! Tuve la oportunidad de probar #sphynx que es un todo en uno. Viene con un spray, un bálsamo para afeitarse, y dos cuchillas - todo lo que necesitan para afeitarse cuando están de afán o se les ha olvidado. Ademas lo pueden traer con ustedes en el avión ✈️. No se si lo usaría para una rasurada completa por lo que el empaque es tan grande, pero una gran opción para cuando se les olvida algo!
  • [#flowerbeautygiftedme #soldejaneirogiftedme] New products I am trying and testing - See any favorites?
-> the new @thrivecausemetics Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3 is quickly becoming a favorite but I’ve yet to use all the shades.
-> @flowerbeauty Blush Bomb Color Drops in Cinammon. This could be a dupe of the @glossier cloud paints. I really like this shade but I am still making up my mind
-> @soldejaneiro Açaí Body Cream. I’ve already said I really like this. I just noticed it does have a shimmer to it, which I hadn’t noticed before. I don’t mind, but wanted to mention it
-> @lilahbeauty Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true. FINALLY getting to try some #lilahb - the brand with the prettiest packaging
-> @dailyconcepts Jade Roller was so kindly sent to me and I have no idea about the benefits but it feels really nice
•
Productos nuevos que he estado ensayando! Las nuevas sombras de #thrivecausemetics hasta ahora me han encantando. Se ven súper lindas y son fáciles de usar. La crema para el cuerpo de #soldejaneiro como ya les había mencionado me gusta mucho, pero me he dado cuenta que me da a la piel como un brillito entonces lo quería mencionar. Otros que todavía estoy viendo qué tal me parecen! Ven algún favorito?

  • Two new products to try from @dermae and I am so excited! One - the Anti-Wrinkle cleanser which smells amazing. I’ve used it already and so far I really like it. And the Sun Defense Oil-Free Sunscreen. I don’t think it is the type of product I’d use under makeup, but it feels really nice and doesn’t have a strong SPF scent which is usually the case. Have you tried either of these? Thank you to @dermae for gifting these to me!

Dos productos para ensayar de #dermae! Uno es un limpiador fácil que ayuda a prevenir arrugas. Huele súper rico y hasta ahora me ha gustado mucho. El segundo producto es un protector solar. No se qué tal se vea debajo de maquillaje, pero me gusta mucho la textura y que además no tiene un olor muy fuerte a protector. Han usado alguno de estos?
  • Happy Sunday! Today’s #motd featuring some of my favorite products 😍 The @anastasiabeverlyhills Soft Glam palette has gotten a lot of love from me - even more than #modernrenaissance. The @hourglasscosmetics Ilumee Sheer Trio is so so good and I’m happy I was able to pick it up. Definitely recommend these two if you’ve been thinking about it
•
Feliz Domingo! El #maquillajedeldia incluye algunos de mis favoritos 😍 La paleta #softglam de #anastasiabeverlyhills me encanta, es súper versátil y la he usado un montón (ahora la pueden conseguir en @blushbaroficial). El trío de #hourglasscosmetics es necesario si les gustan los productos en crema.
