I’ve slowly been making my way through reviewing the entire Glossier collection, and today I’m back with their two masks – Moisturizing Moon and the Mega Greens Galaxy Pack! Glossier makeup is always a blast, but skincare is where they really hit it out of the park. I had heard amazing things about both of these masks, so I picked them up a few months ago and have been using them weekly to see if they really provide results and live up to the hype.
What Are They & What Do They Do?
The Moisturizing Moon Mask is an intensely hydrating treatment that includes ingredients like sweet almond oil, plant-based squalane, and hyaluronic acid. It’s purpose is to hydrate and plump the skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and restoring elasticity. The formula is lightweight and feels almost cooling on the skin, and rinses off easily after 20 minutes to reveal significantly moisturized skin.
The Mega Greens Galaxy Pack is like a juice cleanse for the skin, packed with powerhouse ingredients like leafy green phytonutrients from spinach and parsley, avocado oil, and a superfruit antioxidant blend. This clay mask is meant to balance and condition pores while also calming skin. It draws out excess oils to leave the complexion cleaner, restored, and with a velvety-matte finish.
Both masks come in plastic jars with twist-off lids that are easy to store and stack. You get 3 fl oz of product for $22 USD each, or you can purchase the Mask Duo for $40 (which also qualifies you for free shipping). Key ingredients are as follows:
Moisturizing Moon | Oxygenating Agent, Natural Emollients, Licorice Root and Lemon Extracts, Hyaluronic Acid, Honey and Aloe
Mega Greens | Leafy Green Phytonutrients, Bitter Orange Peel, Creamy White Clay, Avocado Oil & Aloe, Superfruit Antioxidant Blend
Pros & Cons
After using both masks several times, I have to say I am a huge fan. These can be used by themselves, but I really love using them together as a multi-masking treatment. I’ll usually apply the Mega Greens Mask on my t-zone and chin, and then the Moisturizing Moon Mask to my cheeks, neck, and any other areas where I didn’t apply Mega Greens. Both masks only need 20 minutes, so they work perfectly together and leave the skin feeling really balanced. The Moisturizing Moon Mask is an absolute miracle worker. It has a cooling, lightweight texture that my skin really loves, and it’s like a tall glass of water for my skin whenever it’s parched.
The one negative that I should probably mention is that if you have incredibly oily skin, the Mega Greens mask might not be as strong as you’d like. I have combo skin and it works perfectly at getting rid of any excess oils without drying my skin out, but I could see it possibly not being enough for someone who struggles with a lot of oil. However, it’s something you could use multiple times a week to balance out your skin instead of most treatments that you can only use once a week, so that’s definitely a plus.
Have you tried either of the Glossier masks yet?
