Face masks are one of my favorite part of skincare, something that I use on a daily basis. Yes, I use a face mask every day – one that caters to different needs of the skin each day. Today’s post is all about Nugg Beauty Face Mask Glow Kit review.
Nugg Beauty – I came to know of this brand 3 years back and had always wanted to try their products. They were the first in the market to introduce travel-friendly, capsule-sized face masks that look adorable and cute to resist. And while writing this post, I am pinching myself unable to believe that I am working with the very same brand I adored for years!
Nugg addresses themselves as the face mask authority and have a wide variety of face masks catering to different skin types/needs with more than 90% of natural ingredients in each of their products. Their products are very affordable too and make for great gifting options, your girl friends will love.
NUGG BEAUTY FACE MASK GLOW KIT
The Nugg Beauty Face Mask Glow Kit is a set of four capsule face masks –
#1 NUGG Charcoal, Oatmeal & Tea Tree Oil DETOXIFYING MASK
Cleanses, purifies & helps control shine
#2 NUGG Camellia Seed Oil & Spirulina Extract HYDRATING MASK
Intensively hydrates & replenishes dry, dehydrated dry skin
#3 NUGG Flaxseed & Peppermint Oil REVITALIZING MASK
Revitalizes & plumps dull, tired skin for a radiant look
#4 NUGG Cranberry Seed Oil & Jojoba Beads EXFOLIATING MASK
Gently removes dead skin cells for a smooth, clear complexion
As you see, each of these masks cater to different skin requirements and their ingredients are chosen accordingly.
All these four masks are suitable for all skin types.
I am going to be detailing about each of these four masks in the post, but before that I have something to say about the packaging and quantity.
Its clear from above that I totally adore the packaging and label. Each egg- shaped capsule contains 9 ml. quantity of product in it. Its sturdy and totally travel friendly.
All Nugg products are free from parabens, mineral oil, chemical emulsifiers, synthetic fragrances & colors. They are also cruelty free.
The quantity 9 ml. might sound too less at the face of it, but when you start applying one is when you realize there is actually more than what you need for a single use. In fact, there is actually product that’s good enough for a little more than two uses.
You can put it in the fridge and use it up the next day if you want to or can share with your partner/roommate and finish off at one go. I manage to finish this at one go by applying liberally all over my face, neck and nape.
All four masks are creamy in texture yet lightweight and are easy to apply on the skin or to wash off as well. None of the masks dry completely on the face like typical charcoal or clay masks. They all just semi-dry and its time to remove them in 15 minutes.
My thoughts on each of these masks below.
NUGG Charcoal, Oatmeal & Tea Tree Oil DETOXIFYING MASK
The mask is a smooth, black cream and smells of tea tree oil as expected. Charcoal and tea tree oil is a great combination for deep cleaning the pores and fighting acne or killing bacteria at one go. Oatmeal ensures both these products do not dry out your skin.
The fragrance of this mask is very soothing and natural and great for night time routine. I like the slight tingling sensation while having the mask on. My face looks even toned and deep cleaned after using this. I do not have any acne at the moment, but for some small tiny bumps in the face (may be dry acne?) and saw that they dried out completely and I could just rub them off my face the next morning.
I particularly love charcoal face masks and use them once a week for a face detox and loved using this.
NUGG Camellia Seed Oil & Spirulina Extract HYDRATING MASK
This masks smells slightly nutty and I was expecting it to look green in color owing to its spirulina extracts. But its a white, translucent gel.
As it claims, its deeply hydrating. Post wash, my skin felt very supple and taken care of – does what it claims! If you have dry or very dry skin, this one is a good option for a nice dose of hydration to one’s skin. Its great for the current weather conditions too.
I did not see any brightening or deep clean feel with this mask. It simply does what it says – hydrates! And good at it.
NUGG Flaxseed & Peppermint Oil REVITALIZING MASK
This was the first mask I tried from the kit. This smells of natural, relaxing peppermint and I loved it after a long day at work. I felt so calmed down after using this. The product looks like that of a white face cream.
It gives a cooling sensation on the skin which I like. Upon washing off, my face looked less tired and skin brightened. The flaxseed oil helped my skin with good moisture. This one has to be my favorite of all the four, since it not just works on the skin, but also on the senses too.
NUGG Cranberry Seed Oil & Jojoba Beads EXFOLIATING MASK
This is another great smelling mask, that of berries. The consistency is again a white, translucent gel and has pretty jojoba beads floating in it.
I loved applying this mask – the small, white, evenly shaped jojoba pearls felt great to apply on the skin. The cranberry seed oil is loaded with antioxidants that help fight free radicals in the skin layers and the jojoba beads help with epidermal exfoliation at the time of wash off. Just splash a little water on your face, rub the jojoba pearls in circular motions all over your face and clean up.
This mask again delivers a great does of moisture to the skin. Skin feels thoroughly cleaned and exfoliated. It looks more even toned with removal of dead skin cells from the face.
I loved using each of these masks that target different skin aspects.
Personally, I love using face masks because I feel they give one a multi-sensory pleasure with their texture (touch & feel), fragrance (smell) and results (vision). No other can skincare product can give you these sensory pleasures in a single use like a face mask does!
Nugg Beauty face masks kindled excitement in me with their uniquely chosen ingredients and being made with maximum natural and naturally-derived ingredients. Each face mask has natural fragrance that kind of relaxes and soothes when used.
Remember, fragrance and color additives are highly potent skin irritants. Some color additives are animal by-products too!
