Treat Yo Self

Face Mask Review
Who doesn't love a good face mask? I've been doing masks for ages, and have tried everything from the single gel mask packets at walmart, to high end clay masks.  I have been on a mission lately to find little luxuries for cheap. Being teachers with the summers off leaves us on a tight budget, so I've got to be extra thrifty and put my shopping addiction to the least the expensive part! I found these bottles at ULTA, they were buy 1 get 1 free and on sale for only $2.99 each!
The Freeman brand makes gel peel masks as well, but I'm not into those as much. I love the intense clean of a clay mask, the way your skin gets tight and you can hardly talk when its completely dry! It makes me feel like its actually working.
Avocado & Oatmeal:  Claims to "purge pores". I did notice my pores looked smaller afterwards, so it definitely cleaned them out. The clay did that great skin tightening suction thing that I love so much, and took about 15 minutes to really dry. I like to cake this stuff on, so I look crazy and can scare Kevin :) Overall, the mask was great, it didn't have a strong odor, which some can surely have, it came off quickly with a bit of warm water. I give it a 10/10 
 Mint & Lemon: Claims to be a "deep pore cleanser". It smells heavenly and it hurts to smile, which means its doing that suction, skin tightening thing ( HORRAY) !! It dries at the same rate of the Avocado & Oatmeal mask which I love, and its fresh calming scent makes waiting seem like a pampering spa experience. I have been breaking out pretty badly the past few days so hopefully this will clear it all up! 10/10
If you wake up with a pimple, or notice one forming, put a nice dab of any clay mask on top. It will suck the oils out and dry up the blemish. This trick has saved me many times! Unfortunately, this last breakout was due to an allergic reaction, but I think these masks are going to work their magic in clearing it all up for me :)
