To be totally honest, hydrating masks have never been on my skincare shopping list. With my oily t-zone, anything that claims to give you “glowing” skin just makes me look greasy. The Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask is definitely the exception to that.

Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask Review
According to Youth To The People’s website this mask is “the ultimate hydrating radiance boost”. Superberries and THD ascorbate (a stable form of vitamin C) targets dull skin to give it that radiant glow. Squalane, Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin, and Betaine all help to deeply hydrate and repair the skin.
The mask yellow and is a creamy texture. It has a little bit of a light, fruity smell, but nothing overpowering. I could barely even smell it.
The mask is technically an overnight mask, but I don’t really wear masks overnight for a couple of reasons. First, they make my pillow a total mess. Second, 8 hours feels like a really long time to leave any type of treatment on my skin. My secret to using this mask with oily skin is to just leave it on for a couple of hours before bed, wipe it off (but don’t cleanse your skin), and continue with your normal skin routine. When done as part of your skincare routine, it doubles as moisturizer. I also only use it once a week.
This mask feel light to wear and by only leaving it on for a couple of hours, I’ve been able to keep my skin hydrated and glowing, even in the dry autumn air, without getting greasy.
I gave the Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask a 5/5 stars. When worn for a couple of hours instead of overnight, this mask helped my oily skin look hydrated and radiant without getting greasy. Like the other Youth To The People mask I reviewed, it’s cruelty-free and vegan. I have no doubt that if you have dry skin and wear this mask overnight, you’ll love it.
I love a good clay mask, especially in the summer. Summer sweat and sunscreen combined with my already oily skin leaves me looking like a oil slick by the end of the day. Not to mention the breakouts that come next. The Youth To The People Superclay Purify + Clear Power Mask looked like the perfect solution to my oily summer skin.

Youth To The People Superclay Purify + Clear Power Mask Review
According to Youth To The People’s website, this mask is a “triple-clay mask” that “deep cleans and actively clears pores for skin that functions at its fullest potential”. The sustainable French green, white, and volcanic clays helps draw the extra oils from my skin. The niacinamide, BHA, and red willow bark exfoliate my skin and unclog my pores. It works as both a clay mask and as a lightly exfoliating mask, which is the perfect solution for my summer skin issues.
This mask is your typical clay mask consistency and a blue-grey color. There are no added fragrances so it doesn’t really smell like anything. The lack of fragrance is definitely a plus if you have sensitive or irritated skin.
When using this mask, I didn’t feel any weird tingling or burning sensations. It definitely got tighter as it dried, but that’s typical for clay masks. The instructions say to leave on the mask on for about 10 minutes before washing it off, but I found that it can sometimes take longer to dry. I prefer not to wash off clay masks until they have fully dried. The instructions also say that you can use this mask 1-3 times a week. So far, I’ve been using it twice a week without any problems. You definitely need to apply a moisturizer after using this mask, but I haven’t had any issues with overly dry skin or irritation.
I gave the Youth To The People Superclay Purify + Clear Power Mask a 5/5. The combination of clay and exfoliation masks in one addresses all my oily summer skin issues. It helped make my skin less oily and helped reduce my summer breakouts without causing irritation or making my skin feel too dry. This product is vegan, cruelty-free, made with sustainable clays, has recyclable packaging, and has no parabens or sulfates. This clay mask is going to be my skin savior all summer.
Facial oils have been super popular for a while but, as an oily-skinned girl, I’ve always had to stay away from them. That was until Herbivore created a facial oil specifically for oily and acne-prone skin. I random got a sample of the Lapis Blue Tansy Face Oil in an online order from Sephora. I didn’t have a bad reaction to the sample, so I decided to give the full-size bottle a try.
First off, the color, scent, and packaging of the Lapis Blue Tansy Face Oil makes it really nice to use and has secured its spot on my bathroom counter. The scent and color are very much like the Blue Tansy Resurfacing Mask that Herbivore makes.
If you typically have oily skin and aren’t used to using facial oils, it’s important to point out that it will take a little longer to absorb into the skin than regular moisturizer. I only have to use 4 or 5 drops for my entire face, and I always use the opportunity to give myself a little facial massage while the oil is absorbing into my skin.
Winters in Arizona are super dry, so my skin definitely welcomes the moisture from this oil. However, I’ll have to reassess if I’m going to keep using it in the summer months. After using this product for about a month, I haven’t noticed any unusual breakouts or felt like my skin was an oil slick.
Overall, I gave the Lapis Blue Tansy Face Oil from Herbivore a 5/5. It’s a hydrating facial oil that’s perfect for the dry winter months and actually plays nicely with my naturally oily skin. It’s vegan, cruelty-free, and uses mostly glass packaging. The nice scent and pretty blue color means that it’s not on permanent display on my bathroom countertop.
