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┬álater. 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?
