Mask Magic: First Aid Beauty Instant Oatmeal Mask

First Aid Beauty Instant Oatmeal Mask - Politics of PrettyWhat it does: This deeply hydrating oatmeal mask helps calm, nourish and smooth distressed skin. Its formula has a blend of protective oats to repair and revive your best and natural complexion.

How to apply: Apply a generous layer over cleansed skin; wait 10 minutes and then rinse. This can be used two or three times per week for dry skin types.

What it felt like: The texture of the mask is exactly what you think an oatmeal mask would feel like. It has a smooth consistency minus the actual oats, but I can definitely feel it working on my complexion.

What I did while I masked: Sitting here as I write about it!

The results: This cold weather is costing my skin a fortune (and I’m not just talking about the cost in beauty products). Between the redness and the dry, flaky texture around my nose, I’m constantly trying to keep my sensitive skin hydrated. After using this mask, my skin instantly felt smooth and clean and fixed my dry patches. Consider this a must-have winter skin essential because I’ll definitely be relying on this on a weekly basis.

Quick tip: If you’re a Sephora Beauty Insider member, this mask qualifies for 2x the points through January 22nd.
