Younique has launched an amazing skincare line, complete with cleansers, night cream, lifting serum, detoxifying mask, and more! Since we have all the fantastic makeup already, it was definitely time to branch out more into skincare… and I’m thrilled to bring you reviews on each of the new products!
The Royalty Detoxifying Mask is a product that you won’t want to miss out on. Why? Everything about it is nothing short of fabulous. For real.
From the tingling sensation that you experience when you put it on your face initially, to literally feeling the toxins being pulled from your face, to wanting to touch your face nonstop after removing the mask because your skin is SO soft. It’s just fabulous and hands-down the best mask I’ve ever used.
So let’s get right into my review on the Royalty Detoxifying Mask:
What’s so great about this detoxifying mask?
As you may have heard, activated charcoal facial masks are all the rage right now and Younique’s detoxifying mask is no different. The details on the Younique website says, “The bamboo charcoal mask absorbs toxins and impurities while reintroducing oxygens to your skin with a foaming, tingling sensation. The gentle exfoliating properties remove dead skin cells, and tree oils and vitamins help nourish and condition the skin”.
I fell in love with this mask from the second I applied it to my face. It went on easily and I felt the mask bubbling on my skin right away. Like you can actually feel it working on your skin!! After a few minutes, the fizzling sensation stopped and the mask became matte on my face.
Speaking of application, how do you apply this mask to your face?
I used Younique’s Royalty Moisture Boosting Gentle Cleanser first to clean my face. Next I used Younique’s Blusher Brush because, honestly, it was the only clean brush that I had. Lots of people use Younique’s Foundation Brush to apply.
What you use to apply it is not a big deal, but I would recommend not using your fingers. You don’t want the mask start to oxygenate while in the container and using an applicator other than your fingers will ensure that it doesn’t happen. You can also use a small beauty spatula or spoon, like this one, to scoop out the mask. (I send the spoon out to my customers after they order for easy application.)
What skin type is Younique’s Detoxifying Mask best for?
All skin types can use this mask! Normal, Dry, Combination, Oily, and even sensitive.
Really? The Detoxifying Mask is okay to use on sensitive skin?
It’s been absolutely fine to use on my sensitive skin (and my skin is SO sensitive). I would suggest testing a small area out first, just to make sure that it is indeed okay for your sensitive skin too. I’ve been using it twice a week for two weeks and have not had any issues.
Does the mask have a smell to it?
There is no smell to the mask.
How long does the mask need to stay on?
After applying the detoxifying mask to your face, keep it on for at least five minutes before washing it off.
How often should you use the Detoxifying Mask?
It depends on your skin, but the detoxifying mask should be used one to three times per week. I’ve been using it twice weekly since I received it and my skin is responding well to that regimen.
How do you take off the Detoxifying Mask?
After the mask has been on your face for five minutes, simply remove the detoxifying mask using water and your hands, just as you would when washing your face. The mask removes very easily with water.
What order do you use the mask with Younique‘s other products?
My nighttime routine for my face looks like this:
- Shine Makeup Remover Cloths to remove my makeup from the day.
- Moisture Boosting Gentle Cleanser to wash my bare face.
- Detoxifying Mask to remove toxins and dead skin. (I use this mask two times per week.)
- Rose Water Toning Spritz to tone my face.
- Uplift Beauty Serum to help minimize fine line and wrinkles.
- Time Correcting Night Cream to nourish my skin while I’m sleeping.
(All of the above products are from Younique’s new Royalty skincare line.)
Can the detoxifying mask be used in other places?
Absolutely!! Stay tuned for another post on this. Here’s a hint… Have you ever thought about going more natural in the armpit area, like sans deodorant or even just to remove any bacteria that can build up causing the stink? If so, or if that just intrigues you, stay tuned for a future post on this!!
The bottom line…
Younique’s new Royalty skincare is the bomb (do people say that anymore?). The Detoxifying Mask will leave your skin feeling so amazing and soft. You’ll want to use it more than just 1-3 times per week. It’s really the coolest mask.
So, to be fair, I’ve never been a consistent facial mask user. I feel like I need to say that so that you can know where I’m coming from when I’m raving about this product. The reason why I’ve been lazy about using masks on my face is because I’ve never found anything that makes me notice a difference in my skin. Sure, I don’t have a lot of skin issues (thankfully), but I have a lot of redness in my face. (To the point of kind of embarrassing when I don’t have makeup on.)
I tell you the above because this mask has been super fun to use and I’ve noticed a difference. After using the cleanser, my skin feels squeaky clean. Then, after using the mask, my skin feels so velvety soft. Again, to the point where I need to remind myself not to touch my face. Ha!
If you’ve been searching for an amazing mask, try this one out! I know you won’t be disappointed and I feel really confident that you will fall in love with it just like I have. As always, if you have any questions, I’m just an email away and would love to help you.
