Look at my mask...

I decided recently that I'd do something I've never done before. Calm down, it's not that interesting. I was in ULTA the other day getting shampoo and a new hair dryer and they had these facial masks for $1. I take really good care of my skin but I've never used an actual facial mask before. I saw a bunch for $1 so I looked through them all and picked one out. I went for Fruit Smoothie by Montagne Jeunesse.

Last night, I decided I'd finally break it out and give it a try. I read the instructions a couple times just because I wasn't really sure what to do with it. I don't care if that makes me sound like an idiot, go ahead and chuckle. I'm not the spa day kind of girl nor am I the pamper myself at home kind of girl so this was foreign to me. :p

I opened it up and the stuff smelled really good. It has a blend of raspberry, mango, apricot, peach and pomegranate in it though so it better smell delightful. The stuff is really thick and I only needed to use half the package to cover my entire face in a thick layer. It didn't feel sticky or oily. I didn't really like the way it felt as it hardened on my skin, though. It felt so weird to me. I mused on Twitter about how my face felt like it was frozen in place and wondered if that's what getting Botox felt like. My mouth was stuck like this for the 15 minutes it took to dry.....

I had to fight the urge to wash it off early just because I didn't like how it felt on there. It wasn't unpleasant or painful, just weird for me. When 15 minutes were up, I headed to the bathroom. I admit I was a little unsure on whether I was supposed to just splash it off and work it with my wet hands or use a wash cloth, lol. I just worked it with my finger tips and it came off super easy with warm water.

My skin felt super soft and smooth afterward. And smelled really good, haha. The scent of that stuff is pretty strong but it didn't irritate my skin which is awesome because I have incredibly sensitive skin. We call it "expensitive" because the products that don't irritate me tend to be a little passed what's on the cheap and affordable side. I have to be really picky about the products I use so I'm always apprehensive about trying new stuff.

And no, this isn't a product review, obviously. You know, since I paid a whole dollar for the stuff. Though normally, they're priced at $2.29 for the little packet so hooray for stuff being on sale. I just wanted to share my experience since it was a new adventure for me, haha. Not sure if I'll ever use a facial mask again beyond finishing what's left of the packet I used tonight but it was definitely interesting.

Happy Monday!

LOL this is so funny just bc I know how lost you are when it comes to girly things <3

Also I have tried that same mask. Left my skin tightened, smooth, soft and removed excess oil. Immediate results from a mask make me happy but results I can see after 12 hours is even better.
