Self-Care To The Rescue #FaceMaskFriday

Hey Cuties,

I am in desperate need of self-care, I used to be really good about taking care of myself. However, within the last year, I have fallen all the way off. The only thing I was consistent with was getting a haircut every two weeks.

As much as I love nail polish, I never go and get my nails done. I also hardly ever polish them myself either. Pre-motherhood I used to go to the nail shop faithfully. I would walk about with a $70 bill, but my brows were waxed, nails filled and designed with a coordinating pedicure and designed toenails.

I also don’t know a lot about beauty products. So when TheStyleMedic suggested we do a Face Mask Friday I was all in. LittleCuteLips and I did a little face mask once, but that is it.

Now let me tell you how it happened…

Self-Care To The Rescue #FaceMaskFriday

We each picked a mask, she tried the charcoal mask before so I wanted to try it as well. I purchased the mask probably months prior but it only sat in the drawer.  After I mentioned it to Babe he and the Man-Child began to laugh and then told me about all these videos on YouTube. I had no idea, but I already had it so it was a go. He just asked that he could watch me do it. [He didn’t get to watch so I recorded a video for him.]

It was fun I must say, hilarious though for sure.

The mask went on easy, but I felt like I needed more in the packet for better coverage. It did not come with the spatula that I used although it would have been helpful if it did. TheStyleMedic is all thing beauty so she was prepared.  Areas to Avoid: Eyebrows, facial piercings, sideburns, and or baby hair

Once it dries it feels like latex. As you pull it off your face you will see all the impurities that were in your skin. That part is gross, but my skin felt amazing after this. It was baby butt soft. I will do this to myself again. 

Have you tried any of the peel off mask? Chat with me in the comments below or FBIG, and Twitter.

    I love facial masks. I don’t do them as often as I should, but I can always tell a difference in the way my face feels after I have done one. I’m trying to be more intentional about self-care, so this was right on time and confirmation for me to start doing it. Thanks!

    I just cracked up all over again. Running away from your own face has to be the funniest thing ever! We’re overdue for another face mask Friday. Lucky for us, today is Friday 🙂

    I am so scared of that face mask LOL! I love using bentonite clay masks with apple cider vinegar and a drop of tea tree oil. Self care is important, my self care day is usually on a Saturday.

      I like the side of your clay mask. I’ve never tried them before. This one looks worse than it is. My skin appreciated the good cleaning.

  4. Lauren Floyd

    I’m so scared of these masks. Some of them look really painful.

  5. Stacie

    I legit have this mask on my dresser to use today. I love a good black face mask. Bosch has a nice one too.

  6. Olena

    First off, I’m proud of you for getting in some self-care. I do face masks maybe twice a month …if I remember, but I have yet to try a peel-off mask. I really want to though because I have seen a few tutorials on YouTube and I like that is pulls out so much gunk! I will pick one up soon to try for myself.

  7. Stephanie Cooper

    My husband uses these masks too. I had to actually talk him into using an applicator. (He thought using that made it girly lol.) Thank you for this post.

    • MimiCuteLips

      Hahahahaha that is hilarious. Tell him their is nothing girly about taking care of your skin. Babe wants to try them, but he has too much facial hair right now.

  8. Kasi Perkins

    Glad you had a positive and entertaining experience with the mask! I love a good facial mask, but I don’t get to do them as often as I’d like either!

  9. Sheila

    Love this post! Looks like you had a good time :). I enjoy Masking! I typically mask twice a week with sheet masks, but I’ve fallen off of that routine! Right now I’m just washing, toning, serums, moisturize, sunscreen. That’s all I have time for!

    • MimiCuteLips

      I want to try the sheet mask, I’m trying to ease into a sold beauty routine. I’m not there yet, but I have come a long way.

  10. Tiffani Denham

    I have been so afraid to try of these mask for the same reason your husband laughed. Those videos are scary, lol! I’ve been on the Tumeric Masks lately and I really like them. The only thing is turmeric stains EVERYTHING! I’ll leave the charcoal mask for you!

  11. Sheena

    I’ve tried a charcoal mask and my experience was similar to yours. I need to do another one because it left my face feeling pretty smooth. Did yours smell like glue? Mine did. LOL

  12. Joyce Brewer

    I’ve done peel masks, but not the charcoal ones. You’re on point. It’s an easy self-care routine women can do at home. I’ve got a few masks under my bathroom sink I need to use more often.

  13. Nadalie Bardo

    I am all about the face masks! I try my best to do a weekly if not bi-weekly, at home facial. Feels so good to peel off the week.
