If you've been here a while, you've seen my love of masks develop from 'eh? what's a mask?' to 'OMG. Can you SEE my skin? I feel amazing!" And, you might even have noticed a trend - clay, clay, clay, maybe an oxygen mask here and there - but mostly masks designed to pull all the oil and debris from my pores. I'd never even though about a hydration mask. Wouldn't it make my oily skin a total grease ball? Would it be wet and (ugh) moist (shudder) and tacky?
I totally went into this experiment with trepidation! Luckily, I haven't been let down by Valentia before, and I was hoping they'd do right by me again. Hit up the little search bar on the side of my blog, and you'll see how much I love their serums and moisturizers!
I expected that my oily skin would stage a revolt, that my skin would feel tacky, and break out.
My face felt amazing. I was shocked. My skin felt firmer, a little tight, like it was lifted. It was soft - not wet, not tacky, not goopy. So soft. Radiant. The tiredness that I'm wearing in the Before picture is gone - in 30 minutes.
|I'm obsessed with the striped "V" inspiration of the Valentia logo. The base is GlitterDaze Quick! Sand Help! and the stripes are done with Maybelline Bold Gold.|
For more information, or to purchase, you can find Valentia on Facebook, Instagram, their website, or on Amazon, where their Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask currently sells for $25.
Have you ever tried a hydration mask?
