Makeup Wars: My Favorite Mask

I don't always make enough time to give myself masks regularly. I don't know why, since I certainly notice the second my skin looks dull and tired or dry.

Because I love a good gadget, my favorite process is twofold. First, I like to give myself a mild micro-dermabrasion at home, using the PMD Personal Microderm. This handy wand uses a disc that removes the dead skin from your face, revealing younger, fresher skin. It's basically a tiny sander for your face. (I don't know why I equate facial gadgets with workshop tools. It must be my crafty, country upbringing.) You can't hurt yourself with it if you follow the directions. It gives noticeable results quickly. You can read my original review, here.

I find that my skin tends to be more dry than anything else, so masks that add a lot of moisture tend to be my favorites. For the last seven or eight months (!) my favorite has been the Ultra Repair Oatmeal Mask from First Aid Beauty. I'm waiting to dive into several of their other products and after reading the reviews, I'm chomping at the bit to try them! (I'm under a doctor's care at the moment and can only use what she's prescribed.)

Back to the  Ultra Repair Oatmeal Mask. It contains ingredients that increase moisture, reduce inflammation and fights antioxidants. It only takes ten minutes to work, it leaves your skin feeling wonderful and the price won't break the bank. Take a look at the key ingredients:

RELIEVE ITCHING & IRRITATION: Colloidal Oatmeal
REDUCE INFLAMMATION: Bisabolol
MOISTURIZE & NOURISH: Shea Butter
COMBAT FREE RADICALS: Hippophae Rhamnoides Fruit Extract (Sea Buckthorn), FAB Antioxidant Booster

This is definitely one of the best masks I've used to combat my dry skin, no matter what the season!

I have a feeling most of my fellow warriors posted photos of themselves wearing the mask. I didn't manage to do that, so instead, here are a few equally embarrassing photos of me enjoying full face makeup when I was much younger. Oh, that was basically my hair back then. Those bangs were amazing.

  2. Your full face makeup is astounding! And by astounding I mean, HOLYCRAPLOOKATYOURBANGS! The oatmeal mask sounds really nice. I have a PMD and do equate it to using a dremmel tool on my face too, and I'm from the Big City! (Washington, DC)

  3. I don't have dry skin, but I wonder if the Colloidal Oatmeal would be good for an overdose of sun. I might have to give that a try. My skin can be downright finicky in the summer.

  6. Sorta related topic: since you love gadgets, have you tried the Dr Dennis Gross facial steamer? I bought one because I love, love, love, facial steaming. This thing is excellent. I use it in conjunction with my facial masks. Of which I have many. Since I love steaming the gunk out of my face and pores so much, I figure that since I've gone to the trouble of steaming, I might as well take advantage and use a mask afterwards. It's my way of tricking myself to get off my lazy butt and use those masks. Kinda twisted logic, but it works for me!

  9. Yay for having dry skin like meeeee! Oatmeal is best for drier skin so I'm going to have to pick up that First Aid mask. I didn't even though they made masks!

  10. Ooh, that oatmeal mask looks promising. I've been messing around with the Mario Badescu line lately, and they have a TON of masks - including the first clay one I've ever been able to use that didn't fry my dry cheeks.

  11. I am very jealous of those bangs! Mine would never do that!

  12. I love that Instant Oatmeal mask too! I've been using it about once every 7-10 days lately. It's perfect for the weather change, which usually makes my skin so unhappy.
