Nugg Face Mask for Oily Skin

Portion-controlled Nugg face masks come in six different types based on your skin’s individual needs. These single serve capsules are perfectly portioned for travel and ensure that your hair stays hydrated, even on the go. I brought the deep cleansing mask with me on a recent trip from New York to Canada. The combination of the anti aging cucumber extract and ultra hydrating jojoba oil removed excess dirt and left my skin shine-free. I felt nearly as refreshed as I do when leaving the spa.


PROS: Leaves skin smooth and soft, irritation free, low cost per capsule, TSA-friendly

CONS: capsules could be even smaller

Fresh Crème Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask

At first glance, I thought, ‘honey on my face? That sounds like a sticky situation. Although this face mask is composed of 38% pure honey, it is far from a mess. After leaving the solution on my face for 10 minutes, it felt silky, hydrated, and rejuvenated. After two weeks of repeated use, my skin feels permanently hydrated. Another benefit: This mask’s anti aging ingredients work to improve skin’s elasticity and who could not use a little extra tightening?


PROS: Skin felt smooth, velvety, and irritation-free

CONS: Has a heavy, thick feel when applied. Hard to wash off the first few times you use.
