This week I selected Yes to Tomatoes Anti-Pollution Detoxifying Charcoal Bubbling Paper Mask. I picked this up at Ulta during a sale because the red and gray colors caught my eye….repeatedly. I have no previous experiences with this brand. You can purchase this at Ulta for $2.59, Walgreens Box of 10 for $16.99, Walmart for $2.38, CVS for $4.39, Amazon for $4.99, and Riteaid for $3.99. There are probably 15 other stores this is carried in so the ease in finding this outstanding. This mask is very pocket book friendly and I really like that I can locate it practically anywhere I go. But how well does it work? Check out this post to find out which mask wins this weeks battle and don’t forget to follow the steps at the end of this post for a chance to win an at-home facial gift box.

I will be honest, I’m a skincare snob and the older I get, the worse I get. I’m not expecting much from this mask because the price is so low and it’s everywhere. It can’t possibly be better than GlamGlow, right? It’s pretty simple to use. Open packet, put on clean, dry face for 15 minutes, then remove and rinse. No muss, no fuss. Upon opening the package I received my first surprise. This mask smelled amazing! Natural, clean, and mild and I found this subtle scent appealing. I placed the mask on and laid back to let the magic happen. Within 20 seconds the “bubble-tingle” took place. From then on out….pure tingle. I could feel the magic happening on my face. It was AMAZING! After my 15 minutes of bubbling goodness, I got up to see the results and the entire mask was covered in white bubbles. There was hardly any black mask visible anywhere. I loved that. I removed and rinsed and did my pat dry and went about my business. After experiencing my last bubble mask and the reaction I had, I was very nervous about this but I should not have been. My face felt clean, refreshed, and smooth the rest of the evening. The next morning…no rash, breakouts, greasiness, oiliness….nothing! Just clean and soft skin that practically glowed. Now, this was also a sensitive time of the month so I was anticipating a breakout or two over the course of the week. Nope. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Are you kidding me? Not only did I have no reactions, I also had no monthly breakout. Even with my most diligent skincare routine, I’ve never been able to avoid at least one or two blemishes when my hormones go berserk. This time, nothing THE ENTIRE WEEK. This mask was unreal!
Yes to Tomatoes wins this round! The packaging was eye-catching, it is very affordably priced, it’s easy to locate practically anywhere I go, it was easy to use, there was a mild and appealing smell, the super bubble-tingle, the visible bubbles on the mask, the clean and refreshed skin, no skin rashes or breakouts, and it seems to control my acne at a time of the month that should have been unheard of pushed this mask to the top of the list of products I will purchase for regular use. GlamGlow will remain a staple but Yes To has an awesome mask that I recommend anyone with a regular beauty regimen tries. I will be running by to Ulta to grab as many products by this brand that I can to see what other magic they can create in my skincare routine (I’ll be sure to tell you all about them too)!
