Skincare Review: Bliss Pumpkin Powerhouse Mask, Drench and Quench, and Green Tea Wonder Mask

Some Bliss tubs I’ve been testing the past few months.

The Pumpkin Powerhouse Mask promises to exfoliate and resurface the skin using pumpkin puree, lemon and rice powders, and sodium hyaluronate, and shea butter. This is a creamy mask with tiny bits that feels soft and not at all scratchy. It almost feels likes tiny fibers. It just that lightly exfoliates the skin. The masks sting a bit but it does soften the skin. After every application, this helped with my skin’s texture a bit.

To moisturize, the Drench & Quench promises to hydrate and balance the skin with purified microalgae, hydrozome, vitamin c, milk thistle oil, passion fruit seed oil, and german chamomile. As expected, this gel moisturizer feels like a burst of water when you apply it to the skin. It also has a fresh floral scent that’s similar to body moisturizers my aunt used to use when I was a kid. It settles into this slightly creamy, silky texture as it dries. It feels hydrating, which didn’t really surprise me. It’s just not as hydrating as I would like.

I have never encountered a cuter overnight mask than the Green Tea Wonder Mask. It glistens on my hands on my face when applied. Aside from how it looks, this overnight mask also aims to balance and smooth the skin while absorbing excess oil using azelaic acid, fermented green tea oil, green tea extract, aloe leaf juice, and rosa canica extract. This feels so good on the skin. It feels soothing and rejuvenating so I use this after exfoliating or when my skin is feeling sensitive. Most of my overnight masks focus on hydration so this is a welcome addition in my stash.

Skincare Review: Too Faced Cosmetics Hangover Good to Go SPF 25 Moisturizer and Hangover Good in Bed Hydrating Serum

I have been trying so many coconut scented products that I have become desensitized from the smell. The scent that I used to hate has now become the scent I can now tolerate.

A couple of months back, Too Faced expanded their Hangover collection and I got to try a couple of them. I know it has a coconut scent but I still tried them because I enjoy using the Hangover Primer. This primer is a good hydrator before makeup and I like to use this during warm days. It has a very summery scent that is also present in the other products in the Hangover collection.

They now have the Hangover Good to Go SPF 25 Moisturizer, which uses hyaluronic acid, coconut water, and aloe leaf extract to smooth, replenish, soothe, and protect the skin.

This has a light and watery consistency. It doesn’t leave a white cast on my medium-toned skin. Instead, it leaves a creamy finish while hydrating the skin. I don’t get to use this often, however, because I prefer a sunscreen that offers more protection than its SPF 25 coverage.

Having a Too Faced product to be used at night as part of your skincare routine used to be unheard of but here we are. The Hangover Good in Bed Hydrating Serum promises to moisturize and hydrate the skin using hyaluronic acid, coconut water, and dragon fruit.

This feels lightweight as predicted and the serum is in a gel consistency. It applies light but feels a bit oily on the skin. It provides an additional creaminess to the skin, unlike more hyaluronic acid serums. Dry skin types might enjoy this while I prefer a hydrating serum in a lighter and more watery consistency.
