There’s no better way to treat your skin than a consistent routine. Whether you religiously keep up with your skincare routine, drink at least 8 cups of water daily, or stay away from those chocolate bars, taking care of your skin is key to, well… good skin! Unless, of course, you were blessed with amazing genes and naturally have smooth skin and an even skin tone.
So, what’s your routine? Do you have a daytime and nighttime routine? How many times a week do you use a mask or scrub? What’s your skin type? The list of questions regarding skincare goes on and on and on. Everyone’s skin is different, so products that may work for you may not always work for someone else.

While I admit I have not been keeping up with my routine consistently lately, I will give myself a pat on the back and say I’m TRYING to still treat my skin. I’ve recently grown an obsession to face masks and my newest product is from Lush Cosmetics. The Cup O’Coffee face and body mask is the perfect mask for tired and dull skin. Similar to a real cup of coffee, for you caffeine addicts, this mask will wake up a tired (complexion).
Another new favorite I’ve enjoyed recently is the ELEMIS Superfood Vital Veggie Mask. I received this product in my Boxycharm July box and it’s perfect after a day out in the sun. Truthfully, I don’t find myself soaking in the sun too much lately. I burn easily (even after reapplying SPF 50 plenty of times), so I try to avoid too much sunlight in the summer heat. Thankfully, I had this handy after a recent day by the pool.
The ELEMIS Superfood Vital Veggie Mask is another mask that’s perfect for tired and dull skin. This moisturizing mask holds healthy ingredients like wheatgrass and kale (great for a healthy complexion), avocado and chia seeds (to soften skin and lock in moisture), and Vitamin C (for a brighter complexion). In addition to other healthy ingredients, this mask is also cruelty free. After a quick 10 minutes, your skin will feel the smoothest it has ever felt. I had to stop myself from touching my face after the first use, because my skin was just SO smooth!
The only thing that I did not fully enjoy from the ELEMIS mask, was the slight tingling sensation during the first few minutes after application. Thankfully, ELEMIS does give you a warning about this sensation and advises this occurs as the mask “works its magic”.
So, what are your current favorite face masks? Have you tried either of the masks I mentioned above? If so, share your experiences and thoughts in the comments!
