These last couple days have been rough, I’ll admit. See previous post, #WhatTheHealth|Hips Don’t Lie, for more information on that. Earlier today, I was trying to think of ways to relax when I remembered that I had a mask pack that I never got around to trying. And let’s be honest, everyone needs to pamper themselves every once in awhile so I thought, why not?
I’m really excited about this because this was my first time not only trying a 7th Heaven product but a face mask like this. The Black Seaweed Peel-Off mask that I bought came with the Manuka Honey Peel-Off mask as a bonus mask. This mask is vegan, and all of 7th Heaven’s products are cruelty-free.
This mask contains Sea Salt, Lava Seaweed, and Sea Buckthorn as some of its main components. As I was waiting for this mask to dry, I looked up why these ingredients were included. While regular salt is known to be drying, sea salt helps with the skin’s hydration. Seaweed itself is high in nutrients and a great component to add to your diet. It’s a great antioxidant so it can help keep your skin clear. Sea Buckthorn is great for anti-aging by giving nourishment to your skin.
On the back of the mask, the directions stated to:
- Cleanse Face
- Apply Mask
- Wait 20-25 minutes
- Peel Off
I used the #SPOTLIGHT Review| Garnier SkinActive Soothing Cleansing Milk to remove the eyebrow makeup and the mascara I had on. Then I used my Clean & Clear Essential Foaming Facial Cleanser, just to make sure my face was completely clean. I didn’t use any special technique to apply the mask, I honestly just used my fingers. But I did pay special attention to make sure I didn’t get it on my eyebrows or in my hair. After 25 minutes, the mask was still tacky in some spots so I gave it an extra five minutes to dry. Now the smell reminds me of the bubbles I used to play with as a child, but I think it may just be the seaweed. The mask does slightly tingle on the skin, but I found it relaxing.
I had no problems when it came time for me to remove the mask from my face. I actually celebrated because I got it off in one whole piece. At first, it may seem hard to find a place to start peeling from, but I just smiled really big and that help loosens the mask from my face. My skin feels so soft and smooth after using this mask, I’m glad I thought about doing this today.
