Hello my fellow brides!!
You know how many articles/lists will say for your pre-wedding ritual (the night before your wedding) to use a "tried and true face mask"... please remember, "tried and true" is an extremely important detail.
I sometimes use "Still Spa Essentials" face masks from Walmart. Usually they are great! I've never had a problem. So a couple weeks ago I looked and saw they had a new "self warming pumpkin & ginger mask". I was so excited to try it!
It wasn't until 24 hours later that I started to feel a burning sensation across my cheeks/forehead, and my face was definitely swollen... I couldn't figure out what it was. It wasn't until my coworker mentioned my funny Instagram photo that it clicked. 2 days post-face mask, my skin was dry and tight, like a sun burn.
Luckily I was 4 months away from my wedding... but if this had been the night before like they suggest? I would have been so freaked out!
I would suggest using your EXACT tried and true mask... not just a trusted brand. I have never had a reaction to any of their other masks!!!
Good luck fellow ladies! And I hope your skin is clear and soft for your big days!!!
