F.I.Friday! I'm Real Lotus Mask

HAPPY FRIDAY!!! We made it through another week! I'm trying to get back into the full swing of my skincare routine so I wanted to share with you my mask for today. As most of you know, most of my skincare and even some of my makeup prep is Tony Moly. I just love this brand! Believe it or not, there's still a lot of stuff that I haven't tried.  Today we have:

First, we open the mask and unfold it. Fit the mask onto your face

 

Before you start patting the mask onto your face, make sure it fits comfortably.

Pull the outside of the mask taught onto your face

Make sure it isn't too far into your hairline and adjust as needed

Pull down the nose flap. 

 Sometimes this is a step I forget until I go past a mirror. Make sure you pull the nose flap down

Starting from the center of your face, gently pat the mask onto your skin. 

This is an important step. Make sure you work out as many air bubbles as possible. Pinch it around the nose and under your chin. Work any excess serum onto your neck.

Now we wait about 20 minutes. You will feel the mask dry a bit as it sits.

Remove mask and gently massage remaining serum into your skin.

Final Thoughts: 

This mask smelled great! I was expecting it to smell a little more flowery with Lotus and Rose in it, but it really smelled fresh, crisp and clean. As with many sheet masks, this one was a little big for me. The area between the nose and top lip was a little wide and hung over my top lip. It hung a little more in my hairline than I usually like, but this can be folded under or over to fix. A good number of masks are 10-15 minutes, this one was a little longer at 20 minutes. After I took it off and the serum soaked in, my skin felt so nice! It was soft to the touch, felt moisturized and even looked a little brighter. It didn't take long for the remaining serum to soak in. After a few hours, acne spots that I had seemed to diminish and didn't look so red and inflamed. Overall, I think this is an awesome mask and I would purchase again! The price is great $6 for 2 at Tony Moly or $3.75 each at Ulta.
