Bijuleni -4  Face Masks to try now

Bijuleni -Lancôme Absolue Precious Cells Rose Mask

I didn't start using face masks regularly until this year and they have made a huge difference to my skin. I have always had a regular skincare routine, but I never paid attention to the importance of face masks. These are 4 masks that at the moment have been doing miracles for my tired, dehydrated skin. My main aim of using these masks has been to hydrate, even my skin tone and give my skin that natural healthy glow that has been missing because of environmental stressors. Read below all my go to face masks.

Lancôme Absolue Precious Cells Rose Mask is luxury in a jar. If you want your skin to indulge in a rich, deep-hydrating rose mask formulated with natural rose extracts and natural rose water, this is the one. The results are immediate. As soon as I used the mask my skin felt smoother and it was visibly more hydrated than before. The mask has a lovely rose fragrance that is not too empowering, and applying it on my face feels like a veil of delicate, fresh rose petals. Lancôme Absolue Precious Cells Rose Mask is perfect for all skin types, but especially those that are looking for a major boost.

Kiehl's

Turmeric and Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Face Mask

Kiehl's Turmeric and Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Face Mask Review

Kiehl's Turmeric and Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Face Mask Review

Turmeric and Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque is by far my favourite for instant results. As the name suggests this Kiehl’s masque is formulated with Cranberry seeds and Turmeric. Cranberries are rich in antioxidants and turmeric is known for its healing properties, which is what makes this masque magic in a jar. The Turmeric and Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque will instantly brighten and energize your skin by restoring your skin’s tone. Before I started using the masque my skin looked dull and fatigued. Within minutes after I use the masque my skin’s complexion is smoother and brighter. 

Pros
Turmeric helps fade acne scars and dark spots (some of my dark spots have disappeared)
Instant results! Your skin becomes brighter instantly 
A little goes a long way. The jar will last you for months

Cons
If you leave it on for the maximum 10 minutes it's a hard to wash off
sometimes my skin feels a bit tight after removing the masque. (Apply moisturizer to restore hydration)

How to Use
Apply a thin layer to your clean skin
Leave masque to dry for 8-12 minutes
Rinse with warm water while massaging skin in a circular motion (this way the cranberry seeds are exfoliating your skin)
Pat dry skin with a clean soft towel

How Often To Use
Only once a week

Fresh Rose Mask

If you are looking for a more affordable alternative to Lancome’s rose petal mask, I suggest the Rose Face Mask. This mask has a unique, cooling gel formula that is infused with real rose petals that melt into the skin. This mask has become a cult favourite, and even though I do like it for daily use to soften and smooth my skin, it is not super life changing. The Lancôme mask had a stronger rose scent and also had a more long lasting hydrating effect. Regardless, I feel the Fresh Rose Face Mask is much more affordable and I love how it is mostly made with natural ingredients, like sugar and flower extracts. I do have very sensitive skin, and the mask didn’t give me any irritation so definitely safe for all skin types. Fresh Rose Mask, hydrates and tones the complexion to restore radiance and suppleness. 
Pros
Moisturizes and smooths skin
Feels like a cooling and calming sensation when you apply on your face

Cons
I didn't feel like the masque was life changing, but it is great for daily use

How To Use
Apply to your clean skin moist skin. (It's a bit unclear what the instructions mean by moist skin)
Leave on for 5-10 minutes
 Rinse with lukewarm water

How Often To Use
The Fresh Rose Face Mask is gentle enough for daily use according to the manufacturer
