Because who doesn’t love a new face mask?
With the winter months coming, I think we all can agree that our skin will need a little TLC. Between the cold temperatures, dry weather, and brutal wind, your skin will most likely take a beating during the season. But, that doesn’t mean that you can’t revive it. Let me present to you the IT’S A MIRACLE 8 Minute Mask from Wonderskin (brought to you by an affiliate marketing company, OAK Digital).
Now, I know what you’re thinking… What makes this different than all the other face masks on the market? Let’s start with the company.
Wonderskin is a beauty company that sells makeup and skincare products. Their ingredients stay skin-healthy and all products are designed with the condition of your skin in mind. The company chooses beauty experts and pros to develop products and formulas that are actually good for your skin.
The science behind it definitely doesn’t lie.
Wonderskin has also had its fair share of exposure. The brand has been featured in pretty high-up media sources – the Wall Street Journal, US Weekly, Today, Allure, Byrdie, and People Magazine, to name a few. Users and reviewers have raved about their products, so, naturally, I had to give it a go myself.
I was sent their beauty mask to review, and I was skeptical at first.
For a retail price of $39.50, I had some pretty high expectations. The box I received came with eight individually-wrapped packets that are the perfect size for one use – not to mention, very easy to travel with.
In the words of the website, “Picture this: tighter, smoother, more even-toned skin in minutes that stays incredible-looking for hours. It’s not a dream! It’s our IT’S A MIRACLE 8 Minute Mask for face, neck, and hands. Featuring our unique InvisiMatrix complex, this quickie treatment forms an invisible water-repellent layer on skin that lifts, tightens, and blurs so all the little things that bug you (fine lines, crepiness, spots, rough texture) are less visible for hours afterwards. Packed with vitamin C, niacinamide, and other all-star ingredients, it also improves skin’s softness and appearance over time with twice-weekly use. Each single-dose packet ensures you get a fresh, potent formula with every application.”
This mask seemingly has it all, but what does the skin say?
The mask was a white, paste-like consistency with little granules in it for exfoliation. When applying it, it instantly made my skin tingle. I have naturally sensitive skin, so really any mask will tingle for me. As it dried, I started feeling a cool sensation on my skin – and the feeling grew as I took it off. By the time it was all off of my skin, I felt like I had dunked my face in a bucket of ice water – but not in a bad way.
My skin instantly felt rejuvenated.
Here’s the bottom line: although a little pricey, this mask is good for a one-time fix – that’s even what it’s advertised as. With a majority of face masks, you need to use them for a certain amount of time before seeing results. With this 8-minute mask, the results were instant.
My only note would be that if your skin is sensitive, do a patch test beforehand.
Overall, Wonderskin really knocked it out of the park with this. Check out other products made by the company and see how you can start introducing new and improved items into your skincare routine.
Remember: taking care of your skin is not a “one size fits all” (or all of the time). Just as the seasons change, so should your skincare routine based on the conditions around you. For the winter months, consider investing in a moisturizer for drier skin. In the summer, look for a BB or CC cream that has extra SPF. Whatever you do, take good care of your skin – you’ll thank me later.
