It’s Monday and it’s time to throw on a mask! Hopefully, you guys have already picked out your mask of choice for tonight. This week’s #MaskMonday is all about Sunday Riley. We’ve been wanting to try these products for the longest time! It’s only fitting that the first product we try from this brand is a mask, right?! We’ve been using the Sunday Riley Saturn Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask for the past month. We like to use products for at least a month before giving them a full review. It’s always important to give your skin some time to really get to know the product. Unless you have a serious allergic reaction during your first use, give it some time before making a judgment. As you can see from the name, this mask addresses acne problems. Thankfully we don’t suffer from major acne issues but just the occasional annoying blemish. It’s still important to have a mask on hand that helps fight them off!
The first thing you’ll notice about this mask is the smell — sulfur! We’re sure most of you guys know the smell of sulfur. Though it’s not the most pleasant thing in the world, it’s bearable in this mask. You just have to know that it’s not going to smell like roses when you open the bottle! Once you get over the smell, you’ll notice the color — it’s neon green! Not that the color matters much to us, we do like that you can see what you are applying to your skin.
This product is a medicated 10% sulfur mask, which helps penetrate pores and dry up acne. We really think it does a good job at this. After a few minutes, our skin starts to tighten and dry. That means the sulfur is pulling out all of that nasty stuff in our skin. Hallelujah! It also contains niacinamide and zinc to promote clear skin. We love the way our faces feel after we rinse this off. We’re left with squeaky clean skin. With that being said, you will definitely want to follow this up with a really good moisturizer. With all of the drying ingredients, you don’t want to leave your skin begging for moisture. If we use this before bed, we like to apply a thick night cream or even a sleeping mask. This ensures we won’t wake up with dry, irritated skin.
Aside from using this as a mask, it can also be used as a spot treatment. We love this! It’s perfect if we feel a blemish starting to form. We throw on some of this mask and leave it on all night. The next morning the blemish is usually a lot smaller and less red!
As far as the price is concerned, it is on the higher end. It’s not super expensive but it isn’t the cheapest mask we own. We do have to say that we think it’s totally worth it. For one person, this will last a decent amount of time — especially if you don’t suffer from major breakouts. Like we said, we’ve only had this product for the past month and still have half a bottle left.
We’re so happy we found this product! We are really impressed with its effectiveness. It does a great job at pulling out all of the dirt and impurities in our skin. We will definitely be purchasing another bottle once we run out!
