#26 - Skin Edit - Leftover mask...?

So how many of you use masks? And how many are as stingy as me? The following may be obvious but hey, I was always taught "don't be afraid to state the obvious", so here goes - just a super quick one today! A bit like a quick tip!

When I use masks, because I tend to use really thin masks, the mask itself is already drenched in serum and I see a puddle being left in the packet. And I never really throw what's remaining away because why throw away when I can use it....

I have an ongoing collection of these packets where I've used the mask and the serum remains

That puddle of serum tho.....

So, because it makes absolutely no sense to my stingy self that I should throw away any of this, I usually keep it on the side in the bathroom with my other products so I can reach out for them the next morning to pat on my face, or in the evening when I may not have time for a mask (it's getting increasingly difficult with a new 8.30-6. I want to say 9-5 but no one really has a 9-5 any more, it's usually more than that....).

This serum is the same as your face mask so essentially you're just skipping out on the masking aspect and applying this as your would your other serums. For hydration masks, the residue I love using in the morning to give the skin a much needed boost.

I normally pour out the serum and pat it on my skin, or "scoop" it out and apply like cream. Then apply rest of the products in your routine and you are done!

That's it! Do you already do this? What masks do you use and what works for you?
