My bougie AF Silk face mask

My teacher gifts this year will 100% be silk face masks.

I recently picked up this beautiful silk face mask that I’d been waffling about ordering. It’s on the pricey side and felt like such a splurge considering there are very good masks for $10. When you think of it though, this is something you wear every day, everywhere you go, and sometimes for hours at a time. If you are experiencing maskne, I definitely recommend splurging on a high quality silk face mask .

Slip Silk Face Mask: My Review

I recently picked up this beautiful silk face mask that I’d been waffling about ordering. It’s on the pricey side and felt like such a splurge considering there are very good masks for $10. When you think of it though, on a cost per wear basis its not too bad. Masks are something you wear every day, everywhere you go, and sometimes for hours at a time. If you are experiencing maskne, I definitely recommend splurging on a high quality silk face mask .

I have rosacea which for the most part had been fully under control, until this new mask life began. The trapped heat inside face masks aggravates my rosacea like nothing else. Luckily, the masking also helps cover the unsightly outbreaks so nobody has to see it. I know it’s there though, and it usually makes my skin hurt. Especially when fabrics rub against my already inflamed skin.

The lululemon face mask has been my preferred mask since it came out a few weeks ago. It’s a tie for me now between these two masks. I think this mask is really elegant. It’s perfect for your dressier outfits or when going for a sleeker more glammed up look. My lululemon mask is great for everyday wear, and being more active.

This silk mask is a triple layered mask. It has a double-sided layer of long fibre mulberry silk and an inner cotton lining. It also has a really sturdy nose wire piece, and a second replacement nose wire. I also like that it comes in a reusable plastic pouch that I can keep in my purse. Storing the mask with a cover will keep the purse lint/crumb/tic-tacs off of it.

It’s so soft and cushy against my face and although it’s too hard to tell right now if its actually going to help reduce maskne or rosacea, it is definitely not irritating on my skin. There is still some trapped heat on the inside just like my other mask, but more in line with the lululemon mask which I find cooler and more breathable. This may still be enough heat to trigger my rosacea, but the mask is so comfortable and soft that I don’t think the friction of fabric will further aggravate my skin the way some masks do.

  1. These look really nice. I have been wearing masks from Athleta that work pretty well for me, but a silk mask sounds so soft and luxurious. I’d love an update at some point about if it’s helping with your skin condition.

  2. Thank you for your helpful review! I’ve been watching the Slip silk mask but haven’t gotten it yet because it’s quite spendy. Does it wash well, and do you toss it in the machine on gentle cycle?

    Also, where are the black and green masks from in your other silk mask options section? I clicked on the photos, and it just went to Pinterest.

    Happy and healthy new year, Cristina!
