The Best Facial Masks for Skin Care

skin care productsWhen it comes to our beauty routine, we all know about choosing a cleanser and toner for daily use, a good exfoliant to remove dead skin cells, and a serum or cream to moisturize. But what is the most often overlooked yet critical component to having beautiful skin? It is the wonders and benefits that the best facial mask usage can bring us.

Maintaining a regular facial mask regimen is an amazing way to treat your skin to a variety of natural and organic ingredients. Clay and mud masks provide deep cleansing and purification, herbal masks help for an even complexion and breakout prevention, and masks with essential oils and butters hydrate and nourish the skin. A facial mask is an also excuse to lay back, deep breathe, and take a 20 minute meditation break from your stressful day. Here I will compare 3 such facial masks and discuss their benefits.


1.      Moor Mask

This great product is pure 100% herbal mud taken from the Lowland moors. It is a thick, jet black, wet mask that has a healing and calming effect on the skin. It does wonders for problem skin conditions or breakouts, and with a 21-day intensive treatment can completely clear and restore your complexion. It is a deep cleansing mask that leaves the skin soft and silky without having a drying effect. It can also repair skin problems such as damage caused from prolonged sun exposure and dermatitis. What I love most about the Moor Mask is that it feels so calming and silky smooth on the skin for a really relaxing facial.


2.      Vivoderm Anti-Aging Mask

This all herbal mask is mixed with yogurt or pure aloe vera gel to give the skin a great natural makeover and pick-me-up. It is lightly exfoliating and leaves the skin soft, tight, and radiant. It shrinks enlarged pores and makes dull skin tone much more vibrant. My favorite thing about the Vivoderm Mask is that is exfoliates and really improves my dull complexion.


3.      Renu Derma Green Clay Facial Mask

This mask is enriched with vitamin C, green clay, and aloe vera. It is a thick mask that dries completely on the skin. The results from this mask are just wonderful, as it leaves the skin deeply cleansed, feelingtighter, and firmer. The mask is intense – it opens up the pores, and is also a great anti-aging tool. What I love most about this facial mask is what my skin feels like immediately after washing it off – it is just so smooth, tight, and clean.

Using a bi-weekly facial mask regimen can be such an added bonus to your anti-aging, deep cleansing, and complexion-purifying skin care routine. Not to mention they are great to use while submersed in a warm candle-lit bubble bath infused with essential oils. But don’t just take my word for it – try out the best facial masks out for yourself. Get recommendations fora great facial mask rotation based on your age, skin type, and any specific skin problems. Good luck and stay beautiful!

Anti Aging Advanced Renewal Serum for Brazilian Peel

When I reviewed the Brazilian Peel skincare system last year, I was hooked on the results: who wouldn’t love firmer skin, a brighter skin tone and a more even complexion? Now, I’m excited to share with you the latest innovation from Advanced Home Actives: Advanced Renewal Serum.

This system was designed to be used to boost the power of Brazilian Peel, but can also be used on its own to help reduce the signs of aging and damage caused by the elements. According to the official product description, Advanced Renewal Serum contains the following active ingredients:

  • Shea Butter, a skin-softening agent containing anti-inflammatory Endothelyol, which prevents redness and improves rosacea while also brightening skin tone.
  • SKN-INFLUX, a lipid barrier performance enhancer that moisturizes and protect the skin
  • ChroNoline, a peptide-based powerhouse that synergistically promotes the efficacy of the other actives in the formula, resulting in firmer, softer and younger-looking skin.
  • Hylasome EG-10, or cross-linked hyluronic acid, which plumps and brightens skin
  • Chronosphere Optical Brite, which enhances skin’s refreshed, radiant daily appearance

While you can use Advanced Renewal Serum part of your daily skin care routine, it’s also uniquely designed to work in tandem with Brazilian Peel. When used in conjunction, each product helps boost the efficacy of the other. Dr. John Gross, Chief Medical Officer, explains:

Brazilian Peel offers instant brightening, skin-tightening results already, and when used with the Advanced Renewal Serum, the benefits are truly unparalleled.This potent, soothing serum nourishes the skin and helps enhance the anti-aging and brightening results of the glycolic peel, keeping skin looking fresh and flawless in between Brazilian Peel treatments.

This latest skin care innovation promises to be an exciting advancement in the field, and will help transform your skin like never before.

Price: $30 Individually, $89 with Brazilian Peel Kit

iS Clinical White Lightening Skin Brightening System

I got the chance to use and review iS Clinical’s White Lightening System which is a 2-in-1 treatment with skin lightening agents. Used together, these products offer antioxidant protection, gentle controlled exfoliation, interruption of communication between melanocytes and keratinocytes, as well as inhibiting the production of excess melanin. In plain English, it dramatically reduces brown spots and dark scars.

The first product: iS Clinical White Lightening Complex.

    This is an exfoliating, skin lightening antioxidant treatment. It contains extracts like Willow Bark, Sugar Cane , Vaccinium Myrtillus Fruit/Leaf , Imperata Cylindrica Root, Licorice , Alpha-Arbutin and others an it delivers with the correct pH. It also is quite moisturizing and also contains a powerful antioxidant protection.

The second product in this system: iS Clinical White Lightening Serum.

    This is shown to lighten hyper pigmentation in 3 months. Its ingredients are similar to the Lightening Complex however it tends to be a little stronger. The sugar cane extract provides gentle and controlled exfoliation targeting the pigmented skin cells which allows for the active lightening ingredients to sink into the skin. It is a very lightweight serum (be careful because it is thin as water and you may waste it) with blend of Norwegian sea kelp extracts and powerful botanical acids lighten as well as deliver anti-aging benefits, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.

Adding these 2 products to my usual regimen was simple and I noticed a difference in the texture of my skin with one application, making it smooth and moist with no drying or flaking that I get with most exfoliators. After a few days, I noticed the overall appearance of my skin to be lighter and more even toned. I’m looking forward to continuing to use it for the 3 full months and having a light, clear complexion. And don’t forget the sunscreen when using this…the sun is the biggest source of discoloration and brown spots…

I’ll blog again after I use is consistently and let you know my results!

Bobbi Brown’s NEW Anti-Aging Extra Repair Serum

Bobbi Brown Introduces EXTRA Repair Serum

TLC for winter-weary complexions, Bobbi’s new Extra Repair Serum is the ultimate solution for dry skin. With its luxurious milky texture, this skin nourishing serum gives an immediate feeling of comfort on contact.

Over time, it works to help improve skin’s texture and moisture barrier. Infused with anti-aging ingredients, it helps smooth the look of lines and wrinkles while giving skin a firmer, more lifted appearance.

“I created Extra Repair Serum for women who want moisturization and repair in one. It not only feels great the moment it goes on but also helps skin look better day after day.”
- Bobbi Brown

I got this a couple weeks ago to review and I really like it. It goes on silky, almost like a makeup primer. It smells pleasant and wears well under liquid and powder foundations. I haven’t used it long enough to tout about it’s anti-aging benefits, but I would imagine it would make your skin look much better over time if you didn’t usually use a good moisturizer. I’m guessing that the anti-aging ingredients and promise to smooth wrinkles is the reason for the high price tag.

Ingredients & Benefits

    Wheat, Bran & Olive Extract Complex helps strengthen skin’s natural barrier, improving its ability to lock in moisture and prevent future damage.

    Vitamin C and a powerful peptide help soften the look of lines and wrinkles while firming skin.

    Clary Sage Extract encourages skin cell turnover and sweeps away dull surface cells to reveal a fresh, radiant surface.

    Magnolia Bark Extract, Sucrose and Caffeine help reduce visible redness caused by irritation.

    Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycerin and Meadowfoam Seed Oil infuse skin with moisture—instantly and over time.

How to Use

  • Apply to clean, dry skin in the morning and evening.
  • Follow with your choice of Extra moisturizer.
