Coucou mes beautés!!! How many of you caved into Cyber Monday because I did and bought some skincare goodies from Glow Recipe. Ugh my bank account is hurting but my skin has never felt better! 🙂
Glow Recipe’s promo was 20% off all purchases over $70. I bought the LINDSAY Modeling Rubber Mask Sets 2 for $11 US dollars. I figured I was getting a better bang for my buck. They stated on the website that the sets are chosen at random. I guess it makes it easier on them but I wish I coulda tried out the charcoal rubber mask.
I thought it was was a cute gesture that the Glow Recipe Team gave me a couple of samples and a hand written letter. The GR Team is amazing and now I’m tempted to get the full size of the Tea Tree 80 Cream.
Now let’s get started:
Each rubber mask contains a spatula which is very practical! I’ll be demonstrating the Cool (tea-tree) Modeling Mask. The instructions say to fill the cup with water up to the line that’s on it but I thought to myself damn thats a lot of product I think I can split this in half, use some now and save some for later. With that being said I eyeballed how much water was need and put the powder into a small bowl and mixed until I saw a nice consistency of thick, gummy texture. Make sure to check out Glow Recipe’s rubber mask video for more info.
Step 1: Start by spreading the mask on the four areas of your face: left and right cheek, forehead and chin.
Step 2: After you’ve evenly distributed the mask, make sure to coat the edges of your face nice and thick so that it’s easier to take the mask off afterwards.
Step 3: Take the mask off after 15-20 mins or until the mask has dried on the skin. You’ll start to see it crackling around the edges.
Step 4& 5: Once the mask is off your skin will feel tight and bright. I’d recommed that you layer up your skincare creams. Can you guess which essence I’m using??? ***Hint: it’s similar to SK-II essential power essence but at half the price 😉
My takeaways from Glow Recipe’s rubber mask: Would I repurchase this? OUAIS, of course, it’s a fun novelty item. Would I recommend this to my sistas out there? OUAIS, this product comes in various types and targets different needs for all skin types. Plus it makes a great Girls Night In party, can you say junk food, k-dramas and rubber face masks! Was it worth the price? OUAIS, if you get the mask set of two it’s like paying $5.50 for each mask. In addition, if you split the powder like I do, it’s like getting two mask in one container!
