Back in grade school, I loved arts and crafts. I didn’t just express my artistic creativity through Popsicle sticks, pipe cleaners and construction paper but through Elmer’s Glue. I loved pouring a thin layer all over my fingers and then I’d gross out my classmates by slowing peeling it off when it dried.
This explains my fascination with peel off masques today. I am still working on how to peel it off in one big piece. I think I found the product that will bring me success.
Joey New York Quick Results Peel-Off Masque
Back in the 90’s, skincare expert Joey Chancis launched Joey New York . She created a cult following with products like Super Duper Lips (lip plumper) and Egg Cream Instant Face Lifting and Contouring Treatment. Joey New York was always featured in editorials of popular magazines such as this one back in the day:
This time Joey taps into a current trend by infusing nature’s most healing and soothing ingredient into her revamped collection: coconut water. Known for it’s hydrating, nourishing and replenishing benefits, coconut water is the drink of choice for the active and health conscious folk every where. Utilizing the latest technology, Joey New York taps the unparalleled benefits of young, tender green coconut water formula. Rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins, this tropical water is just as beneficial for the skin as it is internally for the body. It also promotes a more youthful glow.
Sounds like a winning combination for skincare!
The collection consists of six products: Bye Bye Blackheads, Correct A-Line for Face and Eyes, Day Gel and Night Cream Eye Duo, Keep it Up, Line Up and the Peel-off Masque. Prices range from just $28-$44/USD.
I went with the peel masque ($32/USD). I am a sucker for masques, they make me feel luxurious and I get lots of satisfaction if I get to peel it off of my face versus wiping it away with a warm wash cloth.
Ingredients are as follows:
Water, Cocus Nucifera (coconut) Water, Withania Somnifera, (Indian Ginseng) extract, SDA alcohol #40, Polyvinyl Alcohol Copopolymer, Propylene Glycol, Polysorbate 20, PVP, Xanthan Gum, Tocopherol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.
What’s not in this masque: parabens, phthalates or sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates.
So how did it work for me? The first night I tried it, I had a few bumps on my face and I knew for sure it would be zit city around my nose due to stress and hormonal fluctuation. I first used this on a Monday night. I apply a medium thick layer on my face – it has bit of a sticky, tacky consistency. I wait about ten minutes and then I start peeling – starting from jawline and worked my way up. I wasn’t successful getting it off in one continuous motion so I need to work on applying an even layer on my face. My skin does feel a bit tighter immediately after I remove the masque entirely. Not sure if it’s from the face tightening properties of the masque or if it’s just because that’s usually how my dry skin feels right after I rinse my face. The next day, however, my skin felt smooth and looked bump free! I try this again on Wednesday and by Thursday morning my skin still looked even and irritated free.
Recommended use is once or twice a week. With regular use, I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to see a noticeable difference in clarity and glow. Because I have super sensitive (eczema proned) skin, I’ll use this just once a week. I’m impressed with the results so far so I’m happy to include this in my nightly cleansing routine.
This may make you more sun sensitive, so please do remember to use your SPF during the day!
Joey New York is currently working on their website, but currently check JoeyNewYork.com for more information. This masque was sent to me by the company for consideration. I was so impressed that I’m looking into more items in this collection.
