Spring Skin Care Most Wanted

Skyn Iceland Brightening Eye Serum – This eye serum isn’t just small in size, but also price. It’s unique, in that it is more like a gel than any other eye product I’ve used before. It feels really moisturizing around my eyes. Skyn Iceland says it’s meant to relax the skin and boost collagen, all meaning you can say goodbye to lines. I’ve had such success with Skyn Iceland in the past, I don’t doubt them at all.

Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil – If you want a little splurge that will last a long time, try this face oil from Dermalogica. You already know and trust the brand when you get a facial. Get that same moisture with this little oil. You can wear it alone or add it to your daily moisturizer to add a massive boost of hydration to your skin. This face oil is a little bit oily on my skin when worn alone, but you don’t notice it as much when mixed with other products. It does feel refreshing and give my face that nice dewy feel that I just want to touch.

Garnier Skin Active Clearly Brighter Gentle Smoothing Scrub – Garnier’s Skin Active Smoothing Scrub is everything my face wants in a daily face wash. It’s gentle enough to use every day, but tough enough that I feel really clean afterwards. I like that it’s not heavily scented. It even uses sustainable argan, so I can feel a bit better about using it. I do find that it dries out my face a bit, but that just gives me the opportunity to use some of those really super moisturizing creams. For this price, it’s just what my wallet wants for skin care too.

Strivectin Overnight Replenishing Moisture Mask – When in need of a burst of just straight moisture, this Strivectin Overnight Mask is an easy solution. Apply a generous layer on your face before bed and you are sure to wake up feeling extra moisturized. If you are like me, you might worry about getting cream all over your pillow. The Strivectin cream does absorb enough that by the time I was actually putting my head down, my fears were pretty much gone. I feel like this mask is the perfect secret skin care weapon. Personally, it’s not something that I need to use 2 or 3 times a week, but maybe once a month I could get my moisture on with Strivectin.

Spring Face Masks Most Wanted – Alyssa Tries

Stephanie posted her spring face mask picks yesterday and now it’s my turn. Apparently I like my masks with tea in them.
boscia Green Tea Mattifying Hydrogel Mask
boscia Green Tea Mattifying Hydrogel Mask
This mask took a little bit of work to get used to. It’s a sheet mask but it’s got quite a slimy feel to it. Once you get it on properly and let it do it’s thing, it’s amazing. It left my skin feeling amazingly refreshed, and it was definitely mattifying. They’re only $10 CDN at Sephora so I’ve already grabbed another one. This mask comes in two other varieties as well.
StriVectin Instant Revitalizing Mask
StriVectin Instant Revitalizing Mask
This mask is probably the most classic of my picks. It applies really creamy and you only need a thin layer so a little goes a long way. It gets drier as it sets and once it’s comes off your skin feels really soft. I almost didn’t want to use moisturizer after. If you have super dry skin, I’d skip this one but for everyone else that wants really soft and glowy skin, you should take a look at this one.
Royal Apothic Cuppa Cuppa Firming Tea Treatment Mask
Royal Apothic Cuppa Cuppa Firming Tea Treatment Mask
I adore Royal Apothic’s packaging and I love that you can buy this mask in a tub with six tubes or you can buy one individually. This mask isn’t just for your face. You can use it on your mask, neck, hands or anywhere you want a little tightening up. It has a little bit of a grain to it, so you get a good scrub when you’re removing it, which I love.
fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask
Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask
There are literally no words for how much I love this mask. The texture is so unique, almost like a whipped balm and it’s so refreshing to apply. This mask doesn’t get dry while it sets and even though it says to leave it on for 5-10 minutes, after five my skin just looks seriously fabulous. I don’t know how it works but it does. If you want hydrated, glowing skin you need to try this mask.
Lotus Aroma Pink Clay Soothing Mask
Lotus Aroma Pink Clay Soothing Mask
When my skin gets really sensitive, this is the mask I reach for. The pink clay doesn’t get overly dry but I can feel it really pulling stuff out of my skin, in a good way. the result leaves me with super smooth skin that has way less redness than before.
