The Magic Of A Compressed Face Mask


I tried one of the compressed face masks for the first time today and OMG I love it! I've gotten so lazy about using masks and taking extra care of my skin lately, but this has made me realize that these extra things are actually FUN + they nourish & can do about 50-60% of the repair work that your skin needs.

Remember I  got these Japanese-made compressed cotton face masks....

I used the PINK heart-shaped one

Out of the wrapper

Dabur Gulabari Rose Water in a bowl

It just pouff-ed up into a double heart. I poured a bit more rose water on it....

.... and swirled the bowl around so the mask got wet completely. Then I opened the mask gently....

Voila!

Now meet the squirrel...

No smiling! (Oh, and must get nose strips!)

I left the mask on until it dried a bit. I noticed my pores, which looked gigantic earlier, took a hike after this.
I used ice cold rose water. Next I'll use green tea. Can't wait!

*You can also use cotton pads as face masks. Just dip some in rose water/green tea/whatever, stretch them a little, and stick them to your forehead, cheeks, chin & nose. Let's say, 3:3+3:1:1 if you're using square ones.

By the way, I'm giving away a pack of the heart-shaped compressed masks in IVC Facebook page (here) if you want them :)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
