e.l.f. water mask & nourishing night cream- A Review

I am so impressed with the e.l.f. water mask and the e.l.f. nourishing night cream that I am sitting here at 9pm writing this blog post.

I wish I had taken photos of my skin.  Let me share the story.  Friday night, I decided to use a facial hair remover because I am a freekin’ hairy beast. I usually use a facial hair trimmer, but thought I’d try this product because I figured it would be easier and the packaging claimed it was great for sensitive skin.

WRONG.

I woke up Saturday morning to my face looking like a hot mess.  I had what looked like little burns and dry patches on the lower half of my face, and along my jawline. I had one patch of raw skin along my jawline that was so irritated it kept me awake all Saturday night.  My skin looked so bad that I sent my husband to the food store because I just didn’t want to be seen.  Normally, I don’t mind going out without makeup, but my skin looked horrible and I didn’t want that feeling of thinking everyone was staring at me, even though not one damned person would have paid me any attention.

Sunday night, I decided to use the e.l.f. water mask that I received in the mail a week or so before.  I was afraid to use any skin care products because I didn’t want to create any more damage.

I used the mask and immediately after placing it on my face I felt relief.  Especially on that raw area on my jawline.  The “serum” felt cooling and super hydrating.  I was pleased at how it was going.  Once the mask was off, the directions call for massaging the remaining “serum” into my skin and allowing it to dry before continuing with my regular skin care routine.  I did exactly that.  Once the “serum” dried, I moisturized using the e.l.f. nourishing night cream.  If you want a cream that’s hydrating, holy crap, the e.l.f. nourishing night cream is AWESOME.

I woke up Monday morning to my face looking 90% better!  I could not believe the results.  I was so happy that I could just dab on some green color correcting concealer and no one would be the wiser that just two days before I had this horrible skin irritation.

This morning, my skin was still a teensy blotchy, but I’d have said looked at about 95% better.  I got home tonight from work and washed off my makeup.  My skin looks like the hot mess never happened!

I am so damned impressed with the hydration I got from ONE mask and a couple night’s use of a moisturizer.

The e.l.f. water mask is $3.00.  I think it can only be found online (www.eyeslipsface.com), but I know the e.l.f. nourishing night cream can be found at Walmart for a little cheaper than on the e.l.f. website.

I more than highly recommend these products.  If you suffer from dry skin, these products are inexpensive enough to try it and if it doesn’t work, you haven’t wasted a ton of money.

What is your skin care routine?  Do you like the e.l.f. product line? Share your favorite products with me!
