Looking #ForeverYoung

Press Sample.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

If you could stay forever young, would you?  I'm pretty sure my childish sense of humor will keep me *acting* forever young, but I wouldn't mind keeping my skin looking and feeling young, too!

This set of Calming Coconut masks from Forever Young comes with five individually-wrapped sheet masks.  They smell delightfully of fresh coconut!  The masks are single-use, infused with a watery serum that is supposed to break down dead skin and help soften, relax, and hydrate skin with the power of coconut oil.
The serum on this mask was thinner than any I'd used before - it made quite a mess, dripping everywhere, so be careful when pulling it out of the packaging and unfolding it.  The nice thing about the serum being so thin is that it absorbed or evaporated quickly.  After having the mask on for 15 minutes, the mask was getting dry, and there wasn't anything to pat into my skin - so I think this mask could be done before a night out, and you could still apply makeup afterwards and look refreshed and ready to party!
The downside to the quick-drying mask is that some of the sheet dried out so quickly that I doubt it made enough contact with my face to really do much.  This was especially true for areas that were curvy, like around my nose.  I couldn't keep the mask adhered to the crevices, where I really wanted that coconut serum to break down the pore-clogging debris and help clear my skin.

I have to say, though, I thought my face looked really good after even just one 15-minute treatment!  Hydrated, smooth, and bright skin? yes! Totally ready for my no-filter, no-makeup selfie!

Inspired by my Forever Young masks!  The base is RBL Golden Horn, with a diagonal French tip in Zoya Desiree, and green leaf details created by mixing Butter London Sozzled with Le Chat Dewdrops.
If you love coconut and the skin-loving benefits of it, and enjoy sheet masks, but are maybe looking for one that isn't slimy or heavy, you might enjoy this Forever Young by Jean Pierre Calming Coconut mask.  It's currently available on Amazon for $14.99 for a pack of 5.
