#TestedWithLove: S4 Skincare's Masks

Weeks ago, I shared my thoughts on S4 Skincare's Simplified Facial Moisturizer, but that wasn't the only beauty buy from this up-and-coming brand that I was lucky enough to try.

The other two products were their Clarified Mask and their Replenished Mask.  

Being an acne combination oily skin-type gal, I tried the clarified mask, while my mother (who has a dry skin type) tested out the replenished mask. 

Both are made with plant stem cells. The clarified mask is also made with Salicylic acid (BHA), which is said to fight and prevents breakouts. The replenished mask has (AHA) lactic acid to prevent fine lines and wrinkles. 

My first reaction: I felt a burning sensation* on my cheeks; it was rather painful. Within two minutes the pain eased and I felt totally fine. My skin post-application had some redness so I will say that I am not in love with this face mask, all in all.

My mother’s reaction: My mother did NOT feel a tingling sensation with the face mask. She did notice after application her skin felt more elastic and smooth than before and she had no breakouts or reactions after application. So, she was a happy camper.

Both face masks dry fairly quickly and neither hardened very much, which was nice.

Need more details? Come ask me for them on Twitter and/or Instagram.

*Shelley actually explained that this is due to the high amount of salicylic acid in the product; they wanted to offer clients the same results as a professional peel.
