Facial Mask Monday: nugg Face Mask

Sunday nights are when I, usually, like to do a facial mask. Something about giving myself a fresh start of the week motivates me.

I purchased the nugg Face Mask at Target almost a year ago. This small package got pushed to the back of my drawer. I’m so glad I dug around in the drawer to find this and share with you my thoughts.

Nugg’s Facial Mask: hydrating comes in what looks like one of those single-serving jelly containers you find in restaurants. It’s only a bit bigger and the consistency of this product is almost the same. Well, the mask is a lot easier to spread…

I had to take a macro photo of the ingredient list to read them…

The blurb talking about natural oils and extracts is correct. I see lots of good-for-the-skin ingredients.

This is what the product looks like…

I could really tell it had silicone as one of it’s main ingredients. There was a lot of slip in the feel. So, if you don’t get along with dimethicone ( silicon-based polymer), you’ll most likely want to skip this one.

Surprisingly, there was hardly any odor to this mask. There was more than enough in this one serving. I thought about saving half for next Sunday but, worried it would dry out in a week’s time…

It was almost like a foundation primer but, heavier in consistency. I put on as much as my face would hold and went to lie down on the bed for 15 minutes. The nugg mask felt very cool and soft on my skin. About halfway in, I couldn’t feel the mask on my face at all. It was nice to do a mask that wasn’t pulling on my skin and feeling uncomfortable.

I mean, I wasn’t doing this to look good; just make my skin feel soft and moisturized…

I think I paid around $3 for this one application. Do I feel it was worth it, I do. After I used a dry micro-fiber towel to wipe off the excise, my skin was very soft and felt moist. I didn’t even bother with washing my face afterwards. I went on to brushing my teeth to give me some gauge as to how moist or dry my skin felt right after the mask. Then, I went right on to applying a serum and nightly moisturizer approximately 10 minutes later. I didn’t feel the need to wash my face after the mask at all. I liked that feeling.

Even though I purchased this nugg mask a long time ago, I still see it sold in Target. They have several other masks for skin types.

Have you seen or, tried a nugg facial mask?

    I applied for the nugg campaign at Brandbacker last year and wasn’t accepted. I have been curious about their masks, but haven’t bought any. Glad it worked for you! I like their packaging.

    I never heard of this brand! I love the single serving aspect – it looks like a KCup! I’m going to look for these at Target next time I’m there!

    • They do look like squat-y little K-Cups!

  • Cindy Ingalls

    I tried the Nugg mask before and it is really refreshing. I loved the small packaging too.

    • You got it right; refreshing!!

  • I haven’t heard of this brand but you make me want to give the mask a try!

    • I am sorry to say I didn’t check to see if they were cruelty-free, though. 🙁

  • I like the idea of taking a macro in order to read tiny ingredient lists!

    • I ready could see the print. Old eyes; great technology.

  • marciaf

    I just heard about these and was wondering what they are like. The price point is great.

    • I thought it was a cloth mask, at first
      Pleasant surprise!!!

  • I’ve never tried these, but I’ve been tempted. I love face masks, all kinds, though clay are my fave.

    • I wish I could remember the other types they had. Check out Target next time you go.

  • FabZilla_Kath

    Unfamiliar w/ the brand. Will check this out next time I go to Target

    • I’m curious to see if they have any other masks that might suit my skin. I enjoyed this one.

  • I need to see if my local Target has these.

    • I have found them at the two Targets in my area so, I hope they are in yours too.

  • My first thought was “Dessert cup from Sainsbury’s” as well! I’m usually not a fan of the packaging unless I have someone staying over to split the contents with, since I’ll have to bin about half the mask otherwise.

    • There was a bit of waste, I agree. And, I could have easily gotten two uses out of it.

  • I absolutely love these! They are so adorable as well!

    • The packaging is truly a part of the fun factor of it. Indeed!

  • These would make for great stocking stuffers when Christmas arrives!

    • That’s a great idea. Or, for a care package to a new mom, etc. I like your way of thinking!!

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    That’s not a bad price at all!

    • At least I didn’t invest in a large package only to find I didn’t like it. I do like this!!

  • This is nice… definitely a great little gift to add to a gift basket. I have not tried them before but I think it would be fun.

  • I definitely need to try these out! Price is on point!
