Sheet masks are a pretty new thing to the western beauty world. Originated in Korean skin care, sheet masks are used because they pack such a potent punch of helpful skin care ingredients suspended in the serum-soaked sheet. I picked up this $6 Sephora Collection Honey Sheet Mask with travel plans in mind – I knew I was flying back to the New Jersey/New York/Philadelphia for Christmas and the words, “nourishing” and “balancing” were exactly what I wanted for my face during travel time.
Facial toner is something that people either think essential or a waste of time. I’m of those who say they are essential. I’ve used some form of toner – whether it be straight rubbing alcohol in my young teen years (ouch), Sea Breeze, Clean and Clear, Proactiv, Mario Badescu Rose Water, Witch Hazel, Bioderma, you-name-it – since I was probably 12 or 13 years old. We’re pushing 15 years of toner use here. I have some experience. That’s the biggest reason why I was excited to write this Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water review.
To me, toner creates a balance and a fresh canvas for your moisturizer (which we all should be using daily). I find they remove that last bit of makeup left behind and can rebalance overly dry or oily skin. Also, if you’re using a good toner, you’re leaving good ingredients on your skin – so choose your toner wisely!
If someone told me two years ago that I’d be raving about a moisturizing face mask, I’d probably punch them square in the face. I’ve always struggled with oily/breakout prone/sensitive/highly reactive skin. As I have learned, much of my struggles with my skin is solved by simply keeping it hydrated and my skin care very simple. I find I break out less and my hyperpigmentation even seems to lessen just by having moisture in my skin. Plus, it definitely makes applying makeup way more fun!
