Everyone enjoys a good face mask(which is why we love Ecocharms!!). Even my husband likes to do it with me when we are sitting around watching TV! It’s just so relaxing after a day of running around. And I like to think I’m pretty experienced by now! Well…at least know what works for me, I guess that doesn’t really make me a beauty expert. But I’ve tried clay masks, peel off masks, gel masks, and even scrubs. However, none of those compare to Ecocharms. In the end, I use face washes the most since I can use them in the shower quickly before moving on with my day. Making a DIY mask on occasion is fun but it isn’t really something I always have time for.
Even the face masks from the store can be time-consuming. At least if you count in the time it takes you to prep your skin, apply, wait for it to dry and then wash/peel it off. In the end, I don’t do nearly as much I would like to because I feel like I almost need to write it into my schedule.
So as a result of my busy life and inconsistent schedule I need products that I can use on a regular basis that will be really easy and quick to use. As much as I love a good peel off mask I think it would be so refreshing to try something new. One of my best friends in the world has tried pretty much every kind of beauty product out there. At least it feels that way! She is a tad obsessed with masks, Bath and Body Works, makeup, beauty box subscriptions and pretty much anything else you can think of.
When I got married recently we had my bachelorette party at a beautiful cabin in Pennsylvania. My close friends and bridesmaids all came and she literally brought a bag full of face masks that we could all try. It was insane how many she had with her but no one was complaining because it was so much fun! Not to mention refreshing and relaxing! This girl is nothing if not dedicated.
On her own time, she uses mask several times a week. She uses the ones that are meant for deep cleaning only about once weekly. In between those, she uses other masks for moisturizing or gentle exfoliation.
The moral of the story here is that she is the one who introduced me to a new type of mask I had never paid that much attention to, which is the humble sheet mask!
I had never really bothered to look into sheet masks. I’ve always been so drawn to the ones that are creamy upon application but dry on your face and you either peel or wash them off. But she showed me how great sheet masks could be. They are so easy to apply since you just have to unfold it and stick it to your face. Then all you have to do is wait about 15 minutes, or however long is recommended, and then peel off. If there is leftover serum left on your skin when you take it off, all you have to do is rub that into your skin.
It has been awhile since then, but with life just seeming to get busier I remembered how easy they were and thought that maybe it was time to try some out and see if they could put me into a better routine. My face could use a good moisturizing mask that will refresh my skin.
After looking on Amazon I decided to look into their current bestseller, Ecocharms Lavender Sheet Mask! Since I don’t know much about sheet masks, I thought this would be a great place to start because I don’t have much experience with this type of mask. It also fits our list beautifully since it is made of bamboo charcoal fabric!
Things to Consider When Trying Ecocharms Organic Charcoal Facial Mask
Possible side effects: Ecocharms is an all natural product which cuts down on the surprise effects of ingredients that you can’t even pronounce. My sister finds out on a pretty regular basis that she can’t use a beauty mask or cleanser. She has to be really picky about what she uses because certain things really hurt her skin, like salicylic acid. While she normally knows what to avoid, there can always be a surprise here and there. We all know it’s a problem when she gets a rash or hives from a new product.
That is exactly why I always recommend that everyone should do a spot treatment before applying to their face. It could save you from a really bad reaction! And just because you have a terrible reaction doesn’t mean everyone will. Usually, products my sister can’t use because of the salicylic acid actually works great on my brother and his acne issues. So it depends on you and how your skin reacts!
Efficiency: Ecocharms is incredibly simple and easy to use. For something that you just lay on top of your skin for an allotted time, it supposed to be incredibly effective. I always was under the impression that you really needed to scrub something into your pores or physically apply a mask to really get the product into the pores. But in this case all you have to do is lay the saturated cloth on top of your skin and it will do the work for you.
Skin Type: This is a wonderful mask for all skin types! But Ecocharms is especially good for oily or dry skin. The charcoal is meant to absorb your excess oils, but the serum in the mask itself is supposed to be wonderful for moisturizing your skin.
Multiple Purpose and Benefits: After reading more about this mask it became pretty clear that I have obviously underestimated sheet masks. This one, in particular, has so many benefits I would never have suspected.
Ecocharms Organic Charcoal Facial Mask is really great as an anti-aging mask. It is supposed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, fade sun or age spots and firm your skin. But this isn’t only for people with those issues alone. It actually goes even further to reduce surface acne and red spots, hyperpigmentation and is suppose to leave your skin looking lighter and more uniform. All the while it is pulling impurities from your skin and absorbing excess oils that contribute to acne, blackheads and a shiny complexion.
This mask is really supposed to just make your skin look and feel better by smoothing, softening, and plumping. It even claims to provide a barrier against bacteria and pollution, but I don’t really know how a person tests that out. Either way, this is quite the list of benefits!
Who Should Buy This Product
Personally, I would try this product to see just how well it moisturizes, softens and smooths out my skin. Being a mere 22 years-old I don’t have that many issues with wrinkles. However, I can see where they are going to be in the future on my forehead and around my mouth! I know that if I want to have nice skin with age I really need to get on the ball and start moisturizing now. Masks like this one sound like a good way to effortlessly slow down the process of aging and enable me to keep my skin soft and smooth. I’m not really that worried about looking or feeling old, some of my friends are dreading it with each passing year. But it just isn’t something that you can avoid and I think you need to embrace the wonderful things that come with age! Even considering that, I still think you should take care of yourself and your skin!
But if you already have wrinkles, acne, oily skin, or an uneven complexion, this could be a great product to try out! It has such a multitude of purposes and benefits!
Who Shouldn’t Buy This Product
I am honestly a bit stumped here. There really isn’t a good reason not to at least try this mask. But if you are unsure of sheet masks it certainly doesn’t make sense to buy a pack of 8. So if you would like to try out a single mask that fits your specific needs the best, you could always check out more sheet masks here.
While most people love the smell of this mask, I actually am not a fan of lavender at all. My mom has been in love with the smell for as long as I can remember and I feel like I got tired of it over the years. So if you are anything like me and don’t enjoy that smell, this mask may not be that appealing to you.
- All natural
- Quick and Easy
- Serum might make your skin feel greasy
- Must be consistent for real results
- Cannot buy single masks to test it out before dedicating to an 8-pack
Features and Benefits
This mask has Anti-aging properties such as smoothing and firming your skin to soften any fine lines and wrinkles. Keep in mind that it will not entirely rid your face of any wrinkles. But it could certainly help! It does this effectively by moisturizing deep into your skin and boosting your production of collagen. This is really important for your skin’s elasticity and health. You can learn about collagen if you’d like to understand the importance!
Reduces surface acne and red spots which I know pretty much all of us have dealt with this at one point or another! Sometimes it catches you off guard and which can be the worst. If you would like to prevent even the possibility of a surprise breakout, this could be a great way to do just that! Between the charcoal cloth and the honey, this mask has really great antibacterial qualities that help clean out those pores and prevent future breakouts.
Good for oily skin! This mask is made of a bamboo charcoal cloth. Charcoal-like this has the wonderful ability to draw impurities out of your skin and soak up oils. The oils actually can clog your pores and make you break out even more. Getting rid of the excess can be really important for a clean healthy-looking face.
Also great for dry skin! With the addition of the hyaluronic acid, this mask has a deep moisturizing quality that helps heal any intense dry skin you might be battling. This is something that really interested me because I definitely have some combination type of skin. I constantly battle dry skin in the winter time, but then in the summer I also have issues with oils. This kind of mask is something I could use all year round!
All natural, vegan, cruelty-free and no animal testing! It is kind of sad that this can be listed as a perk to a skin product. I am not personally vegetarian or vegan, but just because I eat meat doesn’t mean I don’t think this is an important aspect of a beauty product. The idea that even our beauty products are tested on animals is pretty sad. Some people don’t look for this when they are purchasing a product. Whatever product you buy is completely your business! I never was in the habit of looking for this in products and I have certainly bought plenty of products that aren’t labeled as cruelty-free in my lifetime.
But if this is something that is really important to you, this product is a guarantee to be exactly what you were looking for. It hits all the important marks!
Tightens your skin naturally! With the addition of Ceramide in this product, your skin will end up feeling tight and your fine lines will be less prevalent! After using Ecocharms, you could use a toner to really make your skin feel tight, smooth and fresh!
Ecocharms is really such a great product that hasn’t gotten a single bad review. At least that I’m aware of! Everything I have seen so far is really incredible! Now keep in mind that this product is not very widely known and not that many people have tried it so far. So this product does not have the social backing some people like to see before they try out a new product.
However, I honestly think Ecocharms is going to be a really happy surprise for most people. Although not many people have tried it, everyone who has tried it so far has really loves the way it makes their skin feel!
I also think that more people would be willing to try it if they could get it in single packs instead of only packs of 8. Some people worry about spending the extra money for a product they are uncertain about. But the thing is that this product works best if you use it a few times a week, on a consistent basis. So they aren’t selling it in multiples as a marketing scheme to get you to buy more of their product, they are trying to make sure you have enough to get the most out of this product!
As usual, I like to offer some other face mask recommendations because I know not everyone will be interested in this one! That is totally fine, I know I’m not interested in every face mask I come across and I don’t expect everyone else to be either.
But even if you do like this mask but you like hearing about products on the market and what they are good for, I have a few here just for you!
Alba Botanica Hawaiian Papaya Enzyme Facial Mask: This mask is really meant for getting rid of dry and dead skin that leaves your face looking dull and lifeless. If you really just need a pick-me-up this could be exactly what you are looking for! This will brighten up your complexion without making you look or feel greasy!
Dermal Korea Collagen Essence Sheet Mask Set: This is supposed to be a moisturizing mask that also helps freshen up your dry, tired skin. If you are curious about collagen sheet masks this could be a great brand to try. This can be found on Amazon and gets some really great reviews!
Garnier Moisture Bomb Super Hydrating Sheet Mask: If you can’t tell, I am really focusing on the sheet masks for this particular post! If you aren’t interested in the one by Ecocharms, you could try this super hydrating mask instead! I actually love a lot of things by this brand. So if you want something from a more reputable brand this could be a great option for you!
In the end, I think this is a wonderful option for anyone who needs something that is quick and easy, with a lot of benefits. I love the idea of this mask and the multitude of benefits it could have for my skin! Considering this I definitely think Ecocharms deserves a great star rating from me!
I personally need to step up my game when it comes to taking care of my skin. If I’m going to have healthy and firm skin with age I have to promote that now. By using something like this, I will be able to easily fit this into my routine without a problem or a mess!
I would normally think that I need to use a few different products a week to get the same kind of results as merely using this one product a few times a week. So this is a great option if you are looking for a new type of product to use or even if you have some experience with sheet masks. This could be a really awesome new product to help cleanse your skin and remove excess oils that could cause acne outbreaks and blackheads. In addition to softening the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. You can find it on Amazon because it is currently one of the best selling products! That’s just all the more reason for me to really have some interest in trying this all-natural product soon!
