Pamper Sunday: 
Sephora Algae and Pearl 
Face Mask Review

Hi Divas!

I was recently reminded that I have a working uterus and my body was clearly taking visible revenge on me for not reproducing. My skin was acting out and I had unsightly breakouts setting up camp on my face. I usually get hormonal breakouts around once a month but this time was a full on revenge party. I truly didn't understand what was going on but I knew I had to give my face some tender love and care. I remembered that I had purchased two masks from Sephora and thought this would be an ideal time to put them to the test. After all I don't just buy sheet masks for the pretty packaging. I would actually like them to work when I wear it too. The Algae face mask is marketed towards purifying and detoxifying the skin. I thought I would start with that one first and see if it would relieve any existing blemishes and stop new ones from forming. I then decided to use the Pearl face mask towards the end of the week to brighten up my dull, dearie and depressed skin.



Sephora Algae Face Mask
Algae extract comes from seaweed. It is known to contain vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that cleanses and detoxify skin. It protects the skin from free radicals and prevents collagen from breaking down. It keeps the skin hydrated while restoring it. The mask is packaged well with a protective film over it. It is made out of thick cotton. These sheets are thicker than the normal Korean cotton fibres. It fits snug on the face and does not slide or drag down. The essence has a slight chemical sea breeze scent to it. It has a gel like texture as it not runny at all. I like that it does not drip down the face. I do feel that the consistency is slightly drying and not moisturising enough. After wearing it for 30 minutes, my skin did not feel as well moisturised as I would have liked it. The essence soaks quickly into the skin and it does have a cooling effect. I honestly did not see any improvements in clearing up my breakouts. It probably helped a little but I guess it was not effective enough for any real visible differences. Sigh, someone hand me the chocolate! My treat of choice to cure all sorts of PMS ailments.


Sephora Pearl Face Mask
Pearl extracts are beneficial for the skin in that it contains nutrients such as calcium, magnesium and zinc. These all help the skin fight acne, treat discolouration, heal breakouts and give vitality and suppleness. This mask is packaged exactly the same as all the other Sephora masks. It is a little smaller in diameter but it does fit my face. It has a slight floral scent but nothing overpowering. The mask feels very comforting and moisturising. Unlike the algae mask the essence is very hydrating and soothing. It absorbs easily into the skin and the texture is not runny therefore it does not drip down the neck. This mask contains a lot more essence in the packet and I like to pat it into my skin when I am done wearing the mask. I love this mask as it brightened up my tired and dull complexion. It evens out my skin tone making it more radiant and refreshed.


Do you like my selfie? Follow me on Snapchat DIVADESLE to see more craziness. Over all I loved the Pearl mask over the Algae one. I would definitely repurchase it and give the Algae mask a skip. I was really hoping it would do wonders for me but it was a total let down. Thank goodness for the Pearl face mask saving the week. Have you tried any of the masks? Let me know below. Now pass me the chocolate! I need to celebrate getting through another revenge period. LOL ;-)

This one is still in my untried pile - I really really need to use it . I love the Sephora masks - I wish they were a little easier to get here though.

I am on this Sephora mask train and I just knew that I could come on here and find some reviews. I am so interested in this now.I have been using the Sephora charcoal nose strip over the past few weeks (I had 3) and it was such a goodie. If you have blackheads on your nose area then defs pop a strip or two in your basket the next time you're in the Middle East. Lovely review darling.

Thank you so much for the heads up. I will definitely look out fior the charcoal strips. My face needs a serious detox and exfoliating experience. 😘💕

I've never tried any of the Sephora masks. Pity about the Algae mask, but the Pearl sounds great.
��Love your humour in this post! If only chocolate cured all hormonal and PMS symptoms.

Much love
