For me it’s all about skin care. Preventing wrinkles and getting rid of these huge ridiculous pores have been my top priority lately. I’m almost 30 and by almost I mean I’ll be 26 in December. So prevention is key! Might as well prevent pre mature wrinkles while you’re young right? These two face mask help prevent premature wrinkles and reduce pore size for less than $5
With ingredients like Activated Charcoal which can be used for just about anything. Some of its benefits include

Retinol which is used for brightening also has several other benefits such as
- Lightening dark spots

Global Beauty Care Retinol Anti-Aging Mask
When I first spotted this mask at Big Lots I was a bit skeptical since it was only $2.50 for pack of two. The first time I used it I noticed that there was A LOT of product on it, so much so that its dripping as you take it out of the package. It can be quite annoying at times, but the results after using it is magnificent! I leave it on for about 15-20 minutes while I’m drinking tea and rinse off the excess product.
I have noticed some rather big changes with my skin while using this mask. My skin has never felt softer, literally like a babies butt haha! Also I’ve noticed my skin is brighter and my dark spots are starting to fade. I don’t have wrinkles or fine lines at the moment, but I’m hoping it’s working to prevent that as well.
*Warning: If you are breaking out I would avoid using this mask until your skin is a bit more under control. Trust me on this! It will irritate your skin and make the problem worse. Also be sure to rinse off all remaining product. Leaving it on will also irritate the skin. One last thing I suggest using this mask at night, reason being the main ingredient is Retinol which can make your skin more sensitive in direct sunlight.
I have a few extras if you would like to try it before you buy it. Leave a comment below saying “I want this” with your name and email address and I’ll ship you one. Just because it is that good! Only shipping out three! US Only! Sorry to my international friends, I still love you lol. I found a 5 pack Here. They can also be found at dollar tree for just a $1.
Facial Essence Activated Charcoal Mask
As someone with quite large pores I have tried everything within budget, but nothing seems to help quite like my Activated Charcoal Mask. When my skin needs a little pick me up this is the mask I gravitate towards first. It claims to reduce the size of your pores, moisturize, purify and clarify your skin. I also have sensitive skin and eczema so I only use this mask when my eczema isn’t flared up.
I leave this mask on for about 15 minutes or so, once I remove the mask I rub in any extra product still left on my skin. This mask works great for reducing the size of my pores while leaving my skin feeling hydrated. Best of all for a pack of three this mask is only $3! You can find this mask at your local Big Lots or a pack of 12 from Amazon.
Activated Charcoal Mask
I tried really hard to be cute while wearing this mask EPIC FAIL haha!
As you can see my skin looks more refreshed and my pores have gotten a bit smaller. I also need to shave my face again and tweeze my eyebrows, but I’ll save that for another day.
What are some of your favorite face masks?
