I’m always very intrigued by skin care, so I love learning about new trends and what to try next to get radiant, smooth skin! Especially with my wedding just 6 weeks away (!!!!), I am on the hunt for that bride-to-be glow! I have been hearing a lot about egg products being a skincare wonder, so I wanted to try this out and see what all of the hype was about.
I started researching what eggs can do for your skin, and here is a general list of what I found:
- Albumin in egg whites can help tighten pores and clear blackheads
- Egg yolk has hydrating properties
- Egg whites contain collagen that can help fight wrinkles
- Due to the skin tightening properties of eggs whites, it can reduce oil production and help those with oily skin
Not a bad list, right!?
I came across two egg products at Ulta, and decided to give them a try and see what results I could get!
First up, the very highly rated and talked about Too Cool For School Egg Cream Mask (Price: $6). The claims of this mask are that it provides you with hydration and brightening effects. I also picked up the Egg White Perfect Nose Kit (Price: $4). I was really drawn to this because of the fact that unlike any blackhead clearing strip I have used before, this came in 3 different steps (and the picture of the egg going from dirty to completely white really got me).
I actually loved the Egg Cream sheet mask! It made my skin feel SO hydrated and didn’t leave me feeling sticky. I did think my skin was a little brighter, and any redness I had was soothed. This was a win for me! Especially for $6, I would want to pick this up again. As for the nose kit, I wasn’t overly impressed. I have used the Biore Nose Strips for years, and I really like them! The issue I have is that I don’t feel like they ever “fix” my blackhead situation on my nose, they just help a little and I have to continually use them, yet I never see that my nose is completely clear. This is why I wanted to try a 3 step process, just in case I needed a little extra strength to see more results! Unfortunately, I couldn’t really tell a difference between these and my Biore strips. The process is really different though–the first strip is like a sheet mask that sits on your nose, then its a sticky strip that hardens and pulls off, then the third strip is a sheet mask again. It was a fun process, but also a lot of work to keep track of the time and keep changing steps. For $4 I would suggest giving it a try, but for me personally I don’t think I will repurchase.
Overall, the egg trend is still really interesting to me! I will continue to check it out, and maybe even try making my own DIY egg white mask at home! Let me know what your favorite skin care ingredients are!
