Skin79 Rose Moisture Mask Review

 According to Skin79, the Rose Moisture Mask( $20 for 75ml) makes your skin feel “moisturized, relieved, and refreshed” while “evening out your skintone”. Does it deliver on these claims? Let’s take a look!
Skin 79 Rose Moisture Mask

 The Skin79 Rose Moisture Mask comes in a sturdy glass jar with a plastic top. The Mask itself is a cool, liquid jelly texture.  This mask smells, not surprisingly, pretty strongly of roses and even contains bits and pieces of actual rose petals. To use the Skin79 Rose Moisture Mask, spread a small amount on your face so that is evenly covered with a thin layer of gel. The mask feels very cooling and refreshing on my skin and I think the rose scent is beautiful, and while strong, not at all cloying or artificial- just light floral and romantic. Nice and relaxing.

After approximately 10 minutes, you are instructed to rinse the mask off. The jelly texture is surprisingly sticky and not at all slick or slippery so it actually took me quite a bit of effort to fully remove all traces of the Skin79 Rose Moisture Mask from my face.

Skin 79 Rose Moisture MaskSo did the Skin79 Rose Moisture Mask live up to its claims of “moisturizing, relieving, and refreshing” the skin while “evening out skintone”? Kind of. After removing the mask, my skin felt lightly moisturized and as I mentioned before, the jelly-like texture was quite refreshing, but as far as evening out skintone? Nothing.  I was expecting this mask to be deeply moisturizing, but the hydrating properties were pretty…meh. My skin felt the same way it feels after applying a very thin layer of a light facial lotion…minus any greasy residue.

Overall, the Skin79 Rose Moisture Mask was a ‘just okay’ product for me. It certainly didn’t harm my skin or cause me to break out, but it didn’t provide any significant moisturizing effect either. On a positive note, I really enjoyed the scent and texture and found the whole experience to be relaxing and pleasant.

The Skin79 Rose Moisture Mask is available for purchase at the following stores:

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Have you tried my Greek yogurt pancakes yet ? Almost three years later, I’m still obsessed with them. No more flat, dry, wimpy pancakes for me.  Greek yogurt pancakes are fluffy, moist, and seriously taste incredible. You have to try them!

Most of the time, I enjoy my pancakes simply with some maple syrup and pat of butter, but what about days when you want something extra special and indulgent. Enter….Cinnamon Roll Pancakes:

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes! Warm, fluffy pancakes with gooey cinnamon roll sauce and cream cheese icing. YUM!

Warm, fluffy pancakes + cinnamon roll sauce + cream cheese icing = sweet, sticky, cinnamony love.

These taste exactly like a cinnamon bun/roll in pancake form. Much easier and no baking required! And of course you can make these with your own favorite pancake mix, but please, at least try it with my Greek yogurt pancake recipe. I’m still standing by my claim that they are the Holy Grail of all pancakes!
