Review: Bobbi Brown Face Mask (Skin Nourish) & A Mini Rant. Again.

I’ve mentioned a few times before, that the best makeup is good skin. Having good skin is better than concealing flaws. Of course, many women don’t feel it’s a big thing, and some even say they’re confident in their own skin to go out without a speck of makeup, in all their blemish, marks and texture glory. They are even so confident, they don’t use any skincare to try to make their skin look better. Good for them! I’m assuming these women won’t be reading my blog. I’m assuming my readers are confident men and women who just love to play with makeup. I’m assuming you take pride in taking care of your appearance by spending a little more time to apply skincare every morning and evening.

I know some people who diss on those who have an interest in skincare and makeup and it annoys me. Naturally, I might have felt defensive, but we’re individuals who have different interests. No need for hate, or belittling. I shouldn’t need to address this, since we’re all here because of similar interests, but you know… just a mini rant. Now back to the face mask.

Apparently, Bobbi and I share the same thought. “Beautiful makeup starts with beautiful skin”. I couldn’t agree more.

I love the packaging of the face mask. It’s the same packaging as one of my favourite masks and you can get every bit out. You know, like the old toothpaste tubes, not the plastic ones. The Skin Nourish Face Mask (RM177) is for those with dry dehydrated skin. It has a unique Triple Emulsion Texture, which delivers a sustained multi-layered release of moisturization – hydrating emollients, natural oils and water. While the mask gives heavyweight results, it is lightweight in texture. It goes on like any cream would, and it melts into the skin. I apply a thick layer and let it sit for 10 minutes then tissue off any excess product. Due to the amount I use, my face looks very shiny for that 10 minutes, but after I tissue it off, I massage any cream left on my face, like a moisturizer. I don’t apply anything after that. It’s like an intense moisturization for the night. I wake up to beautiful smooth and soft skin. The first time I used it, I was recovering from a long bout of cough and fever. My skin was lackluster, and it felt coarse against my hands. It even felt like there were thorns on my nose! I was desperate to get my skin back to normal, and I tried everything. A very expensive serum from La Mer worked like a miracle, but I also used this 3 times a week for 2 weeks. My face looked amazing!!

Coral Grass distributes moisture, Chlorella Extract increases natural collagen production and Muru Muru Butter repairs skin’s natural moisture barrier. The mask is full of ingredients that deliver hydration and moisture to the skin. I now use it only once a week, along with other masks for other days, and my skin does look better. I love masks and serums because they are potent, and I do see visible results compared to when I only cleanse, tone and moisturize.






Right now, as I’m writing, I look at myself in the mirror and while I see dark circles and larger pores around the nose, my skin, in general, is still fine and smooth, without rough texture. There’s even some rosiness peeking through my cheeks! I’m not giving this mask full credit for my skin’s condition but you know, good skincare rocks.

What about you? Do you mask regularly? Have you tried this? What are you using?
