The Shop Tart has always been intrigued by sheet masks for her face. (Or is it always called a “masque” if it has to do with skincare? Anyone?) They can be very expensive, like more than the cost of a facial in a spa. Just for a disposable tissue type thing you put on your face. But they really work. Recently, the Shop Tart saw a mask/que from Target get props in Allure. She can still see the marks in the driveway from when she pealed out to get that mask. When she got to Target, she headed straight to the Masque Bar by Look Beauty station. And she couldn’t remember which one Allure had recommended.
She asked the Tank, “Is my face more saggy or more wrinkled?”
“More saggy, Mommy,” he said. “Because you don’t have any wrinkles!”
Love. That. Kid. She tried both, the wrinkle reducing (with green tea extract, collagen and vitamin E), and the firming and lifting, (with green tea extract, Coenzyme Q10 and vitamin E). The results? Awesome. After just 20 or 30 minutes sitting at her desk wearing the mask, the Shop Tart’s skin was refreshed and plumped, in a good way, like when you fluff pillows and they suddenly look cleaner.
She liked both masks so much, she used one every single day. (Yes, this could get expensive, and she totally promises to chill out soon.) Soon, she went back to Target for more, and tried something new.
The brightening mask, with orange extract, licorice root and vitamin C, is another hit. The brightening mask was not quite as good for moisturizing, which is not a fault, since it isn’t meant for that. Just so you know!
Now, the Shop Tart has never used the expensive sheet masks, but she can say that they are less effective than a good, salon facial, but more effective than a mediocre to crappy one. And even if you get regular facials from a pro, these are great for in between appointments. And you know when you have to go out? And your skin looks blah? That firming and lifting masque will totally do you a solid.
So. The Shop Tart has a question. She has some air travel coming up and she thinks her skin would love it if she wore one of the masques on the flight. They most definitely look weird. They could, potentially, scare small children. Is it her right as a paying flyer to look weird and possibly scare children? Or is that just rude? The mask/ques are not messy, because any remaining product can be rubbed into your neck or hands. Or feet! The Shop Tart’s feet need love when she flies! Okay, that might be crossing a line. But really, can she do this in the air? Yes or no? Just be honest!
Happy Shopping and don’t forget to tell them you read it on the Shop Tart!
