I absolutely stuck to my guns when it came to masking or using treatments regularly. I posted this photo halfway through the month:
Since then I was able to finish up three products.
The Grown Alchemist polishing facial exfoliant-I was never in love with this product. I used it once or twice a week all fall, winter, and spring. I am thrilled to be done with it. There was a massive air bubble toward the end and I finished it up rather unexpectedly. I didn’t make a point to use this more during the may challenge so you could just say it’s a bit of a coincidence that I happened to finish it this month.
Aphrodite Olive oil face mask-I really enjoyed this deep cleansing mask. It was very gentle compared to other clay masks I’ve used. I am glad I cut it open, I got another 4 applications out of it that way. I doubt I’ll repurchase but I am glad I got to try it and use it up.
Ren evercalm-the was absolutely the stand out product this month. In fact, I’d say that it was the one where I seemed to have the best results. One morning I woke up and thought I looked REALLY pale. But, then I realized it was probably this face mask working its magic. That being said, I wasn’t entirely using it the way the directions suggested. I was using it after my nightly skin routine and sleeping in it. Almost daily. But, the results were so good that I would consider purchasing more from Ren’s evercalm line to try. At some point in the future when I have used up the huge stash of products I already have.
Other products I got use out of even though I didn’t finish-
Ahava hydration cream mask-I used this a bunch of times and will continue to do so again now that the Ren mask is used up. Using it at night to sleep in works nicely.
Peter Thomas Roth exfoliating gel-I probably used this about 5 times over the month. It’s a product I like just fine but probably won’t purchase again.
Elemis enzyme peel-I used this 3 or 4 times. I am not sure if I see great results from this product but it does work for continuing to keep a good chemical exfoliating routine going.
Amore Pacific-same type of product as the elemis peel, and I used it only twice I believe. I don’t think they even make this product anymore so I am going to be working toward using it up in the upcoming month.
Glamglow supermud-I used it once and only in my T-zone. This is well known for really being a drying mask so I didn’t want to push it at this point.
While we absolutely have a few more days to go this month and I absolutely will continue my may mask challenge through the end of the month, wrapping it up here will do as there’s no way I’ll finish another product in the next two days. I am super happy to have done this challenge though. I have certainly noticed smoother skin overall, and seeing real results on the redness of my face really was interesting and surprising.

I absolutely notice a different with sleeping masks. I have one from Korres and I woke up this morning to smoother, clearer skin. I use it like a night face cream since I have oily skin and I love it. I will be repurchasing it once I use up my other sleeping mask. Even though the Korres is $44, it is absolutely worth it. I have been using it a month and barely have a dip in it as you use less of it than a night cream. I find it spreads farther due to being more emollient. I’m guessing it will last 6 months of use after 1 month in. So, its essentially, like $8 dollars a month. IT smells like roses but that doesn’t bother me as the scent is gone once its rubbed into the face.
I will have to try a sleeping mask. I move around so much though, it might get all over the sheets!
