#MaskaDayinMay Wrapup

It is no secret that I am addicted to masks, All kinds of masks! Because I love masks and am a hoarder by nature I have a ton of masks that I have collected. Using a mask each day of the month seemed like a good way to use up some of my collection.

I have a ton of mask samples from all the various beauty subscriptions that I have so that contributes a fair number of masks to my collection. I also pick up inexpensive masks at TJ Maxx because they generally have a good selection around $1 per sheet mask. I do love a bargain! And I got an amazing deal with my Monster Sheet Mask Haul. I used a few masks from there.

Below is the list of masks that I used this month. Although I used the same brand more than once I did not use the same mask twice this month. I used a variety of masks – sheet, clay, mud, gel, sleeping. For reference, my skin is normal with some shine in the summer. I also use Tretinoin 6 nights a week and some form of AHA on the night I don’t use tretinoin.

5/28 – Freeman Feeling Beautiful Pomegranate Facial Revealing Peel-Off Mask

5/29 – Freeman Beauty Infusion Purifying Sea Kelp + Probiotics In-Shower Mask

5/30 – Freeman Feeling Beautiful Charcoal & Black Sugar Clay Mask

I have to say that it got old masking every night even as much as I love to mask. There were times that it was a struggle to work the mask in. I wait 2 hours after applying tretinoin to use masks that don’t need to be rinsed off.  I like to give it maximum time to be absorbed into my skin. When I use rinse off masks I do them before applying tretinoin.

To be honest I don’t see that using a mask every day benefited my skin. I actually had more breakouts that may be due to all the sheet masks. At the end of the month, I moved to more mud and clay masks and that seemed to stop the breakouts. I think I may try this again in the winter when the extra hydration will be a good thing.

Do you use masks regularly? Do you have a favorite brand/type? Have you used any that I used in May? Any recommendations of masks I should try?

  1. Ooooh that sounds so fun honestly, definitely tempting me to try using a mask a day, but I agree maybe its best to try it out in the colder months with more hydrating masks! Loved reading this x

    1. Thanks for reading and for the kind words. It was too much for my skin in warm weather. I think I will do it again in the fall or winter. Perhaps we could organize a challenge or collaboration?

  2. Hm, interesting to hear your outtake on the mask a day for a whole month. I feel the breakouts might have been from using so many different products. Best of luck with finding some even more amazing products.
