It’s the spooky season and one of my favourite times of the year. Even though I live in Australia and it’s slowly warming up, I love seeing all my overseas friends embrace the fall colours, warm beverages and pumpkin patches (something that’s been on my bucket list for 100 years). For most, as the weather starts to cool down, our skin can start to dry out and become flakey and sensitive. So to celebrate the season, I thought I’d try out and review some Halloween inspired face masks. Boo!
Too Cool For School – Pumpkin 24K Gold Mask
I originally wanted to try the sleeping mask in this range but having already 4 sleeping mask on the go, I didn’t want to add a fifth so instead, I went with this really wonderful sheet mask and I’m so glad I did. This mask aims to help improve signs of aging and brighten the skin with the aid of 24K gold and pumpkin as active ingredients. This mask is protected with two layers of mask protectors with a hydragel like main mask. The mask doesn’t feel like normal mydragel as it’s a cross between hydragel and a thin cotton sheet but by golly did it feel great on the skin.
The mask had a lovely cooling effect and I found that after 25 minutes of wear my skin felt lovely and smooth with a slight brightening effect. The effects lasted through out the day and I also noticed my makeup went on smoother later that evening. The fit of the mask was pretty good although the nose was a little small. There was no dripping of excess essence and there was enough essence for another application later that night. I would highly recommend this mask to others and especially those wanting to have a little pampering.
Wish Formula – The Bat Eye Mask
with Centella Honey Fermented Essence.
This is the perfect sheet mask for Halloween lovers as it’s literally a bat sheet! How cool is that?! This mask claims that “Vitamin C, adenosine, centella and fermented honey in the mask essence provide Anti-wrinkle & Anti-aging effect on the Bat Eye-Zone as well as strong hydration and soothing effect to brighten up the skin tone.”
After cleansing your face, apply this mask over your nose and under your eyes for 15-20 minutes and then remove and pat excess into your skin lightly.
I found this mask a lot of fun and originally tried it with a friend sometime earlier this year. I found that this mask had some great plumping and brightening effects and skin felt soft and plump the next day. The fact that this isn’t a full sheet mask as well gives you the impression that it’s designed for the targetted area and it definitely. We both noticed our skin looked brighter the next day and we were keen to continue purchasing this mask.
The sheet mask is very thick which I personally don’t mind but if that bothers you, you might want to think a bit more before purchasing. However, the price of this mask is really reasonable especially for the quality of the product as well as the fun and quirky factor it offers. The fit was very comfortable and there was enough essence left over for another application later that week. I found that the mask curved well under my eyes and stretched across my face without overhang.
Perfect for a Halloween pamper night with friends!
Elizavecca – Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control Hyaluronic Acid 97% serum
This hyaluronic acid serum came at the perfect time as I was just at the end of my last hyaluronic acid serum was running out. For those that aren’t familiar with the Elizavecca brand, they use a piggy as their mascot but dont be worried, they don’t have pig as an ingredient if that’s something you avoid. This serum was lovely and thick, thicker than the Mizon serum, but it did soak into the skin rather quickly and didn’t leave a sticky film. The serum has a very light sweet scent which is something that I normally avoid in skincare but it vanishes rather quickly.
I’ve used the serum for about two weeks now and have noticed that my skin hasn’t been as dry as it normally is which is a sign the serum is working. I will continue to use this product as a replacement for my last hyaluronic acid serum but I’m not sure if I’ll buy another replacement. I’m not a fan of scented skincare as fragrance is not a necessary ingredient and can sometimes be damaging to the skin but that’s always just a personal preference.
I’m not hosting a Halloween party this year but I will be watching Hocus Pocus with some delicioud snacks so enjoying some spooky skincare just adds a cherry to the top of a wonderful evening.
