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.

  • Thank you @pixibeauty for all the eye goodies!! I am already a fan of their endless silky eye pen formula so can’t wait to try these shades. Today I used the Eye Bright Liner and the Eye Define Waterline to tightline. I really like the nude shade as it is very natural. Have you tried any of these?

  • I had been thinking about getting this @laneige_us lip mask for so long! As someone guilty of picking at her lips (thanks anxiety), they’re always a mess and just a hint of dryness enables me to pick at them. I’ve been using this for the last couple of nights, and I love waking up to hydrated lips πŸ‘„ Have you tried this or anything similar? How do you care for your lips?

  • N E W | @urbandecaycosmetics Naked Heat vs @tartecosmetics Tartelette Toasted [link in bio]πŸ”₯Since the release of these two palettes, I went back and forth between which one I wanted. I thought they were a lot more similar than they actually are. If you swipe left you’ll be able to see swatches and how the overall color palette is different! Are you a toasted or a heat?
