So I have decided to start back the “try it Tuesday” blog posts with a product that I absolutely love! It is from the French brand Yonka and it is called Masque No 1.
Back in October I changed jobs and this is a brand that my current work place uses so naturally enough I got a few samples of products to try myself and I also purchased a few products to see how and if they worked for me.
First of all, I have slightly dry, dehydrated skin with a small bit of sensitivity so anything hydrating, I am willing to try it.
So Masque No1 is a hydrating mask that you can sleep in overnight and wake up the next day 96% more hydrated. Yes 96% more hydrated. You don’t have to wear the mask overnight if you don’t want to, you can also only apply the mask for as little at 15-20 minutes if you wish or even after 3 hours you can remove it and still be 76% more hydrated.
If you are extremely sensitive I would recommend using it for twenty minutes first and see how you find it, then in time build yourself up to a couple of hours etc.
If like me you are thinking does it actually work though? Then yes is the answer.. I literally only used the product once and saw a noticeable difference in my skin the next morning. My skin had a lovely glow about it. I was delighted with myself.
This mask is a cream consistency, it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin which is a huge plus for me. I don’t like products that I can feel on my skin or feel like they are sitting on top of my skin, I just want to take them off again but this cream feels very lightweight on the skin.
A friend of mine who is also a Beauty therapist tried out the Masque after I had told her about it and feel in love with the product too.
You don’t have to have dry skin to use this product either, if you have oily skin this mask will still work well for you. It is great for every skin type.
I know that skincare is expensive but by using this cream 2-3 times a week overnight (see how your skin is, only you will know if you need to use the mask a third time or not) you won’t be using your night cream those nights so you will get even longer out of your night cream. (Which is a great plus!)
The thing is if you already use an amazing skincare routine, you still need this product in your life! The hydration that this product offers is amazing.
The skin nerd was on Ireland AM a few weeks before Christmas telling everyone just how much she loved the product.
For me, I cleanse, tone, exfoliate (twice a week), apply my environ vitamin A gel, my eye cream and then apply this mask and leave it on overnight.
In the morning I cleanse, tone, apply my environ gel then apply my eye cream and lastly moisturize and I am on my way.
I use this product twice a week to give my skin that real glow. If my skin was feeling really tight and dry then I would apply it a third time.
Yonka Masque No1 is €47.50 and is so worth the money, in my opinion. Once you start using it you won’t be able to go without it!
Before I bought this product I looked up some reviews online.. To see what I see across click Here.

Thanks for reading,
P.s. No, the Masque doesn’t get o your pillows so no need to worry about that! (Probably the most asked question of all!) 😊
