Self Care Sunday | Mask a Day Skincare Challenge


Happy long weekend! 🎉
For #selfcaresunday , I'm sharing the sheet masks that I've used since I challenged myself to use a mask a day. I was accumulating a lot of masks (hoarding) and some were so old. I wanted to use them up before they expired, but some were already expired 🙈  ps. I hope the pics are ok. I'm using the one's from my Instagram post that have filters to brighten them 
My favourites were:
🌟 7th Heaven Detox + Replenishing Hydrogel Mask
🌟 Jayjun Mega Bright Program Toning Mask
🌟 b.liv Age Eraser (was expired by 1 year 🙈)
🌟 Comfort Zone Skin Perfect Mask
🌟 The Creme Shop Avocado Face mask
🌟 Maskeraide Eye Gel Patches 

My notes on all of these were that they were refreshing, soothing, and hydrating, and some were brightening and firming as well! Read on for more details...

Other good ones:
🌟 Innisfree My Real Squeeze #greentea
🌟 COS.W My Real Skin Rose mask
🌟 Skyn Iceland Hydracool Firming eye gels

*Note: links to products will be provided in the product headings whenever available 

this 2-piece hydrogel mask. With fruit antioxidants including 7 different types of berries to create a powerful Berry Complex this mask will moisturise, calm and help plump skin. With Bamboo Charcoal to draw out impurities and absorb excess sebum, your complexion will be left feeling smoother, deeply cleansed and feeling renewed.

One of my top picks. Not surprising since 7th Heaven is one of my favourite affordable brands! 

This one was super hydrating and soothing and left my skin looking plump and healthy.

Firming, elasticizing mask

Another one of my top picks. I found it hydrating and soothing with some firming, too. It contains Brown Algae and Chicory extract lift and firm the skin.

The Creme Shop Avocado Face mask 
(unable to find online, which may explain why I found these at Marshall's Canada)

A great hydrating and soothing choice. Ironically the panda mask from this same brand burned my skin, yet this one was very soothing. Must be something in the panda mask that doesn't agree with my skin.

a unique formulation of multipeptide, this youth preserving bio-cellulose mask reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while preventing premature skin aging. the result is maximum skin regeneration and a firming effect.

Wow! I don't remember liking this one as much as I did after using it this week! It has been a long time since I used this one though. It expired a year ago but I used it anyways. 

My skin was not only hydrated and soothed but it definitely felt firmer after this one!

This mask contains rosa centifolia flower water which is an effective ingredient for skin conditioning and brightening!

This one was also soothing and hydrating, and brightening, too. 

This was another one that had a real WOW effect for me! I found it brightening, soothing, hydrating, and firming! My notes on this one also stated "Refreshed looking afterwards!" Love this one!

Loved this one too for hydration and plumping the skin. (unable to find this exact sheet mask except for the tube form linked above).

What didn't work for me:
🌟 The Creme Shop Slow Down, Skin panda face mask. This was the only one that didn't agree with my skin and caused a burning sensation so I had to remove it after less than 5 min
🌟 Elizabeth Grant eye masks were dried out so I was unable to use them. Probably my fault because I've had them for a while.
🌟 Klara collagen lip mask. I think I would need to use these daily for a while to notice a difference. They weren't bad, I just needed more time with them, I think.

Infused with Bamboo Extract. This is a fun mask with the animated Panda Face. Unfortunately, this mask began to burn my skin within the first 5 minutes and I had to remove it. This is the only mask from this post that had a negative reaction with my skin. It could be an ingredient that just doesn't agree with my skin as I see a lot of good reviews on this one. 

CONCENTRATED doses of soothing ingredients. Extensin helps to firm and tone, hexapeptide helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Ginkgo biloba improves blood flow and helps reduce puffiness. Advanced antioxidants help prevent future damage.

I loved these eye masks as they smoothed and depuffed my under eyes. I found that the MaskerAide All Eyes on Me (below) were a better value for the same effect, but unable to find them online. 

ALL EYES ON ME undereye gels are packed with super hydrating, brightening and firming ingredients including our unique 100 Herb Complex* formula and Hyaluronic Acid that will give you a long-lasting moisture boost.

Surprisingly did help smooth my under eyes and help to depuff for a fresher, younger look! I couldn't find it online. :(

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to use either of these as they had completely dried out.

I noticed a slight difference but I feel that I'd have to use these daily for some time before I really notice a difference. I've used this before and noticed the same thing then.

After doing these masks daily for 8 days, I do notice a difference in my skin overall. Definitely plumper, and more youthful looking. Plus, brighter and more refreshed looking!
Since I woke up from a migraine today, I'll be continuing with this daily mask routine today. The cooling effect from the mask will hopefully help ease my migraine.

I am definitely becoming a bit addicted to masking now. It is such a great way to pamper yourself and make some time to relax and unwind whilst pampering your skin. I had been getting lazy about masking prior to this challenge, but now I'm hooked! Once I finish up all my sheet masks, I'll be able to start using up my plethora of masks in tubs and tubes, and I'm totally here for it! 

My new-ish moto has become "use it or lose it" when it came to decluttering my wardrobe and household. Now it has expanded to my skincare, haircare and face masks. I really dislike waste, so this challenge was just what I needed to do. 

Give it a try if you are also hoarding or letting your face mask collection build up but find that you aren't using them... there is no better time than right now!

Hope everyone has a great long weekend! 🥰
