Welcome once again to face mask friday and I can tell you, I am ready for a small break from my day. I spent so much of my week playing catch up and I’m fairly certain my e-mail took advantage of my inattention and began reproducing like bunnies. Maybe they just heard Easter was approaching, I don’t know but it was a lot of e-mails.
And so I very happily stepped away from my computer to take a break. Today I went with a sheet mask from the brand Blac Therapy. I used the Avocado one as it is nice and hydrating. Blanc Therapy is one of those brands that I was introduced to through my sheet mask subscription with Facetory. I honestly would never have found them on my own and now I keep reordering from the Facetory site. Their egg white mask is on my list of top masks and apparently I am not the only one who loves it as it sells out really quickly. Especially when they have $1 Masking mondays – which they have every week, because you know, there’s a Monday in every week.
Funny how that works.
They rotate what masks are in the weekly sale and I’ve learned through my subscription which ones I like. Before I got the subscription, I didn’t really think about sheet masks that much to be honest. And to be fair a lot of them are pretty indistinguishable from the others. It’s the stand outs I remember now. I get the Four-ever Fresh Subscription since Four sheet masks a month is plenty for me right now, but they do have the Seven Lux which unsurprisingly has seven and they also have a quarterly box that comes with skincare items that aren’t sheet masks. I haven’t tried it, but it is on my list of subscriptions to try. One thing I absolutely adore about the subscription (besides it’s low cost) is how easy it is to pause. If I get a bunch of sheet masks and feel overwhelmed I can skip a month (or several months) with a quick click of the button and then when I’ve worked through my masks I can start the subscription up again. It is also why I don’t always review the mask subscription on a regular basis.
Lately I’ve been working through my masks to get the number down, so I skipped a few months and am now ready to start the subscription back up again.
With the Blanc Therapy one of the things I really like about the mask is the material. I know that sounds strange but I was reminded about masking materials earlier this week. On monday I used an ONA gel mask and it kept peeling off my face, lifting up around the edges. It was a little annoying (although the serum was good).
This has that thin biocellulose kind of material that clings to the skin for the entire masking time. The mask is very saturated but not drippy, so if you want to use it at the desk you can. I started to go to the bedroom with it on and light the candles (still using the Poe Candle from Paddywax – although it is almost completely spent. I’m still trying to decide on spring scents for both my masking moments and for the house.) but the backlog from my e-mails kept calling so I ended up sitting at my desk with the mask on.
After fifteen minutes I took it of. Patted my skin down and let the remaining serum sink in. Now dry, my skin feels amazingly smooth and hydrated. I really like the Blanc Therapy masks and I’m really glad the Facetory subscription let me find them.
There is plenty of serum, but not too much, they never irritate my skin. the serum is hydrating and the mask stays perfectly in place once you apply it. Really, what more could you ask for from a sheet mask? Now, despite taking my masking break I am refreshed and ready to go on with the rest of my day. I hope the rest of your Friday goes well and I will see you back here later for the Happy Hour.
