Beauty Jobs – 5 Face Masks You Have to Try

Monday, August 27th, 2018

Beauty Nine to Five - Beauty Jobs in Canada

We’re such sucks when it comes to a little TLC once in a while. In fact, we consider it a weekly necessity especially while balance a busy work, school, and social life. Skincare is one of our favourite ways to relax and rejuvenate, especially when it involves some quality spa time. But we don’t always have the luxury of making it out to the spa, so why not bring it home to you? At-home face masks have really taken centre stage in the skincare world, with brands formulating everything from your classic hydration masks to spa-quality peel masks removing the need to book an appointment with your esthetician. We looked through all our beauty products, and picked out our favourite five face masks you have to try!

Jouviance Glyco|Laser 5 Soft Peel Mask
The Jouviance Glyco|Laser 5 Soft Peel Mask is an AHA/BHA peel mask that leaves you with glowing skin. Formulated with 5% Glycolic Acid (AHA), Willow Bark Extract (bha), Kaolin (white clay) and Montmorillonite (green clay), this mask not only exfoliates your skin, but reduces fine lines while minimizing pores. Jouviance also created the formula to ensure all these results are delivered irritant-free.

Herbivore Blue Clay Spot Treatment Mask
This Herbivore Blue Clay Mask has to be one of our favourites for detoxifying our skin. This formula can be used all over the face, or as a spot treatment to tackle hormonal or cystic breakouts and purify the skin. The Blue Clay mask also contains rose geranium oil which helps balance out oil production and help calm skin irritation.

Pharmagel Nutra-Lift Moisturizing Masque
If you like to keep it simple with your skincare and don’t like using too many products, the Pharmagel Nutra-Lift Moisturizing masque is a great pick. This mask really has it all – Glycolic Acid to exfoliate, Vitamins B, C & E to nourish and help the overall look of your skin and Kaolin Clay to remove impurities and detoxify the skin. After just one use, your skin feels fresh, bright and renewed.

FRESH Rose Face Mask
Toning is probably a skincare step most overlooked, but it’s crucial to good skin health. FRESH made it easy and incorporated toning with the power of hydrating in their Rose Face Mask which actually has about twp roses worth of petals in each jar. Gentle enough for daily use, this mask works to hydrate skin where it needs it most thanks to porphyridium cruentum algae while green tea’s antioxidant power brightens skin.

Formula 10.0.6 Get Your Glow On Skin Brightening Peel Mask
Don’t let the price point of this mask fool you, it’s definitely a must-have! Formula 10.0.6 is a great line of products that focus on natural ingredients to help promote healthy skin. The Get Your Glow On is a peel-off mask with citrus and papaya to help gently bright skin and unclog pores. We also recommend trying the rest of their line of mask not only for their affordability but their results!

Makeup Artist Jobs – Beauty Desk Essentials

Friday, September 30th, 2016

beauty-nine-to-five - beauty jobs


When life gets busy and your desk starts to pile up, turn to your beauty stash to keep you comfortable and a little less stressed! If you don’t have one yet – it’s always fun to live the life of a beauty editor once in a while, so test things out and find your favourite products to keep at your desk. Now work hard and look the part with our list of essentials. There’s everything you need to stay refreshed, energized (and sane) throughout the day.


Hand cream

Dry, cracked hands are no fun at all – especially when on full display, working away on your keyboard! Byredo’s luxurious hand cream is the ultimate moisturizer, accompanied by a delicate floral scent.


Lip and cheek colour

If you’re obsessed with two-for-one products like us, try the Nudestix Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm. It applies like dream and its tin casing comes with a built-in mirror. Now, you’ve cut down on items in your stash and mastered the art of after-work/pre-drink touch-ups!



When you’re in need of a pick-me-up, a bit concealer will help you look more awake. Enter: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, it’s a cult-favourite for a reason. With buildable coverage, smooth application, and lasting power, this concealer will quickly become the only complexion corrector you need.


Facial mist

If the office air dries your skin out, facial mists are the best option for frequent yet practical hydration. A few sprays from KIEHL’S new hydrating mist will keep your moisture levels in check – and it’s a fun way to take a mini-break.


Powder or blotting paper

Mid-day shine doesn’t have to be a constant battle. Quickly dusting on a tinted powder will give you a smooth, matte, and even-toned complexion. RMS Beauty’s Tinted “Un” Powder is perfect for the less is more approach – in terms of application and its impressive ingredient list.
