Facial Fridays

Even though it's actually sounds better though! I've been planning on doing these posts for awhile now, but the procrastination bug not only caught me but seems to have taken up residence. School and tutoring just burns me out and by the end of the day I just want to sleep, or do something mindless before sleeping.

Anyways! I got a face mask sampler pack from Simply Sweet Skin (link to her facebook page) and so far I've tried out three; the rosehips mask, the sea kelp mask, and the milk & honey mask.

I'm loving these things! So far I like the rosehips mask best, even though it makes me look very politically incorrect..I only took pictures of the steps for the rosehips mask, but I've been doing the same thing with the other two masks I've tried.

My kitties were very curious about what I had. 

So here we go! I have been doing a honey+baking soda mask for awhile, I just mix everything up in a glass top. So I just used the same process for these masks.
I took out a small spoonful and dumped it into the middle top.
 Mixed up a glob of honey, which totally looks gross.
 Swirl it all around and make a paste.
 Then I use the spoon to smoosh it around my face, oh yeah, I look so attractive here :). I left it on about 15 minutes, and then gently rinsed with cold water.
 Same thing goes for the sea kelp mask, except it looked like baby poo. XD

I personally have combo skin, I tend to have dry cheeks and an oily T-zone. The rosehip mask felt the best to me, the sea kelp left me slightly dry on my cheeks so I think it'd be good for more oily skin. The milk & honey mask didn't leave me feeling too dry, but it didn't get me as soft as the rosehips mask did. :) I can't wait to try out some of the others, and I'm even splitting a few to bring to a friend at school who wanted to try some out on her mom. :)
So how many of you like to do facial masks, has anyone else tried out SSS? :)

Also, here are some benefits of the ingredients in the masks. Now these are benefits of the individual ingredients, there is no guarantee or scientific proof, it's just things the ingredients are known for. :) (under the cut due to the list being really long!)
