ONE Natural Nighty Nite Tonic Hydrating Mask

I have recently come across this product and was pleasantly surprised with the results. I’ve never used a mask that came like this really. And I badly needed it when I was in Philly! I spent an afternoon in my Aunt and Uncle’s attic retrieving my suitcases from years ago and searching for baby clothes. You see, I left 2 suitcases there when I went to college and occasionally came back to add and/or remove stuff from them. Well, since I’ve been based in Oklahoma for the past 3.5 years I figured that I’ll just take them back with me when my Holiday visit is over. And as a lot of attics are….the one I was in is dusty and full of that insulation material. Those insulation fibres got me good and the skin around my nose area got really cracked. I plowed through the first 2 days after that miserably, but then I remember that I brought this product with me and decided to try it out. I was hoping that it would somehow help condition my skin well. Here’s ONE Nighty Nite Tonic Hydrating Mask.

ONE Natural Nighty Nite Tonic Hydrating Mask

The 1.2 fl oz / 35 g quantity packs a lot of goodness in a clear gel form for the cloth like mask. As you may have guessed, the gel is mostly made up of aloe vera and the product comes in a 100% recyclable foil packet that’s easy transport. And yes, the white cloth like mask is also 100% biodegradable, as shown in the picture. The front text reads “Relax * Rejuvenate * Recycle” and “recycle this package with your aluminum cans :)”. Also spotted is the now familiar “One moment to enjoy * One less thing in a landfill * One life to live * One planet to preserve” forming a circular frame sort of on the upper left corner of the packet.

What I love about this product? It’s so easy to use. Just open the packet and leave on face for 15-20 minutes. It left my face feeling very moisturized and rejuvenated. The coolness of the clear gel really hit the spot. Only tip I want to add is to start with lining up the mask to your forehead while using the holes of the eyes in the mask as a guide. That’s the easiest way for me when I tried it out. I don’t detect any scent with this product. Best of all, it did help with my predicament from being up in an attic for about 2 hours. I am now back in Oklahoma and none of my co-worker friends can tell that I have tiny cuts and dryness in my nose and mouth area.

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing really. I’m definitely picking this up when I go to Target next time.

It retails for $1.99 or so and is available at Target and ULTA stores nationwide as well as on Target.com. I didn’t spot this online at, Walgreens.com nor at OneBathandBody.com, where ONE brand products are carried. Not sure why. For that price though, it’s a great buy and I highly recommend you trying it out at least once.

Montagne Jeunesse Face Mask Strawberry Souffle

I’ve seen this product many, many times before at CVS and was curious about it. I never picked it up though. I figured it was just another face mask and I’ll just be saving my money by not getting it. I was therefore very eager to try it out when I got a trail size in my Influenster Holiday VoxBox 2011. Enter Montagne Jeunesse Face Mask Strawberry Souffle.

Montagne Jeunesse Face Mask Strawberry Souffle

The Influenster insert boasts about this product: “Montagne Jeunesse’s face masks are jam-packed with the most delicious natural ingredients and are bursting with luscious juicy fragrances. Influensters will receive one of the following flavors: Strawberry Souffle, Cucumber Peel Off, Passion Peel Off, Dead Sea Mud, Fruit Smoothie.”

Verdict? This product comes in a standard side tear packet. Most face masks comes in similar packaging. Formula is thick, smooth and creamy. It felt light when applied onto my face as a mask and quite soothing. It smells of light strawberries, pleasant but not too tempting for my mouth to start watering. Directions for use on the back of the packet is pretty standard: cleanse face, apply mask, relax with mask for 15-20 minutes then rinse and pat dry. It left my face so soft and smooth. I didn’t find this drying at all even if it has Benonite clay in it. One difference I noticed with this mask compared to others I’ve tried before is that it doesn’t dry hard to the point that it can crack and flake off. I enjoyed using this product immensely and would highly recommend it. It’s a perfect fast and easy little treat for yourself. It comes in several other scents and types of masks too such as Cucumber Peel Off, Passion Peel Off, Dead Sea Mud, Fruit Smoothie, Strawberry Souffle, Chocolate Mud and many others.

The full-sized packet of 10 ml / 0.3 fl oz retails for $1.99 and is available at ULTA Beauty, Walgreen’s, Claire’s, Walmart, Kroger, CVS Pharmacies and other retailers.
