It’s been quite a while since I’ve done any Empties posts, so here’s a look at some of the face masks I’ve used lately.
Anatomicals Look, You’ve Got Chocolate All Over Your Face Anti-Stress Face Mask
This is the first Anatomicals face mask that I’ve tried. The mask itself looked like melted chocolate, but had a slight mousse-like texture to it.
Sadly the scent was a mixture of chocolate and cocoa butter, which I didn’t love. Due to the cocoa butter element, it smelt a bit off and cloying.
Initially I was pleased with the results of this mask as my skin did look calmer, brighter and healthier, but the next day I suffered blemishes.
Pretty Animalz by Look Beauty Panda Calming Facials Sheet Mask
Another face mask with an incredibly long name! I liked the fun design of this face mask, however the fit was poor and it didn’t have a calming effect on my skin.
Despite this containing lavender and other soothing agents, the day after using this mask I suffered a bad breakout.
Repurchase? Again, no.
Garnier Camomile Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask
I’d seen pretty mixed reviews of Garnier’s Moisture Bomb Tissue Masks, but as this one was half price, I decided to give it a go.
In all honesty, I hated everything about this mask. I hated the fit, the results, just everything. It claims to give skin a week’s worth of moisture, but it completely dehydrated and dried out my skin, leaving it a flaky mess.
Repurchase? No, no, no! Never.
Avec Moi Skin Care Brightening Care Night Mask
My last face mask empty is this brightening, Batman type mask I bought in Switzerland.
I was a little disappointed in the design, as I thought it’d be a full-sized sheet mask, but this only covered the centre of my face. As for results, my skin looked slightly brighter but not enough for me to be wowed by.
Repurchase? No. The results weren’t noticeable enough and I didn’t love the design of the mask.
Sephora Charcoal Nose Strips
Not a face mask, but a face product nonetheless. I picked up these nose strips in Italy and I got my partner to try one out too, as we both suffer larger pores on our noses.
These strips were easy to use, comfortable to wear and remove and did help clear our pores out and make them a bit less noticeable.
Repurchase? Maybe. The results from the nose strips were fine, but I’ve since tried better products.
So that’s part one of my Empties and it was a batch of pretty disappointing products. In the next part of my Empties, I’ll be sharing other products that I’ve used up.
