Hey y’all, welcome back! Today I’m going to be talking about skincare. I don’t talk much about it on the blog, but I’m actually a big skincare fanatic! My senior year of high school I actually had a pretty significant skincare regimen. I love trying out all different types of products, so when Masqueology sent over these gold skincare items to photograph, I was super excited!
When I unboxed these on my Instagram stories, I mentioned that I was excited to try these out because my under eyes get really dry. I really think these do help with that! I had never tried an under eye mask before these, but I think they’re pretty great. One problem I have is that they do slip down a little bit, so you have to sit very still while you have them on. You can pick them up here.
I cannot stop using this serum, it’s one of my new favorite skincare items! I had never used a serum before this one, but it’s so hydrating and a good, non-oily option during the warmer months. It dries down pretty quickly, so it’s a good pre-makeup option. You can pick it up here.
Clearly this mask isn’t gold, but they sent it along as well so I had to try it out for y’all! The funny thing about this mask is that it’s red/pink, so it looks pretty hilarious when you wear it. This watermelon mask is a paper sheet mask, unlike the other one I tried for this post. I prefer paper to gel masks. It also had a nice, light watermelon scent. Some masks with strong scents irritate my eyes, so I appreciated that this one was light and refreshing. It definitely moisturized my face too! I am thinking about picking up a multi-pack of these on Amazon. You can pick them up as well here.
This was my least favorite item I received and I probably would not purchase this mask. The gel was a bit too heavy, so the mask slipped around on my face. It also had a really strong rose scent which irritated my eyes. In addition, it did not hydrate my face. After I took it off, I rubbed in the remaining serum, as you should when you use a sheet mask. Instead of sinking into my skin, the serum pilled up on my fingertips. I personally would not purchase these, but if you are interested in trying them out, you can find them here.

Overall, I was extremely pleased with the 24 Karat gold skincare items I got to try from Masqueology and I will likely repurchase some of them! One thing I really appreciate about Masqueology is its affordability. Making good quality skincare affordable is fantastic because people on a budget deserve the ability to self-care!
Love from Mill Valley,
