Walgreen’s Studio 35 Beauty Warming Facial Mask

Even though we have had plenty of snow, here in Colorado, I’m still playing the moisture ‘catch-up’ game with my skin. I know this is just how it will be as I age. But, that doesn’t mean I’m not going to give up the fight! I’m more diligent than ever, especially during the Winter.

I have been searching out masks that help moisturize my skin while exfoliating the dead cells. Creating that turnover of skin cells is vital to keeping lines and wrinkles away as well as keeping my skin glowing.

Studio 35 Beauty is Walgreens line of beauty products. I found this Warming Mask and wanted to give it a go…

This season, I have been cold! So what better way to warm up than with putting on a warming mask. However, I have to say, I’m very disappointed that I didn’t feel any warming sensation with Studio 35 Beauty’s mask. All is not lost, though. It still left my skin feeling soft and moist.

Here are a list of the ingredients…

Again, I find that I have gravitated to another product that has orange and/or Vitamin C in it. Vitamin C has been quite the buzz for skin care for several years. I don’t see it slacking. I wasn’t expecting to see so many other natural ingredients in this mask but gosh, there are lots of them!!!

And, if I didn’t feel satisfied with the results, Walgreens was giving me a 100% guarantee…

For just a couple of dollars, I felt I was going to be OK. And, I was! This mask was very refreshing. Since it was a gel mask, it didn’t get hard or draw in on my skin like clay masks do. I left it on for 10 minutes before rinsing it away. I actually set my timer app and go relax on my bed when I do a mask. I take advantage of having the luxury of being able to make it a spa-like treatment.

The product had a slight tint to it, the first time I used it and, just the slightest bit of a fragrance…

I put on a little at a time as this gel was rather runny. And, I was able to get two treatments out of this one envelope…

One thing that I didn’t think of was to squeeze the envelope and churn up the contents before opening it and applying it. The second time I used this mask, it wasn’t clear like the first usage. This could have had something to do with why I never felt any warming sensation.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed the process and after washing the mask off, my skin felt extremely smooth and moisturized. I followed up with my regular night time skin care and noticed how smooth my skin felt.

I bought this mask for $1.75 last month. I don’t know if they are discontinuing it and, I hope not because I would certainly purchase this warming mask again.

Have you tried a warming mask?
