Go ahead punk, Cake my Day (Facemask).

That’s right my darlings it is masking time! And although this is the friday face mask, I did something a little different today. I applied the mask as usual but this mask I also applied Monday and Wednesday. As it is recommended to use the mask two to three times a week for best results that it what I did. As we all know in skin care, consistency counts.

This I Dew Care Cake My Day mask is part of a trio f travel sized masks that I received from IPSY this month. And there was just enough product in this first jar to try it three times. This little jar is now, sadly empty. It gave it’s all for my facial hydration.

So let’s talk about it.

According to the product description for this specific mask…

Did someone say sprinkles? Scoop up I Dew Care Cake My Day Hydrating Sprinkle Wash Off Mask packed with moisturizing rainbow sprinkles that give skin an instant burst of hydration. This soft-serve inspired face mask is infused with hyaluronic acid to nourish and plump the skin, while squalane is known to provide deep hydration and improve moisture retention. Cake your day two to three times a week!

I went with three times, today’s face mask being the third. While even three times doesn’t show visible results I was able to get a better feel for it than a one time use.

First off when opening the jar it smells like vanilla cake batter. A part of me wanted to taste it, but I resisted. There is no eating of the face masks.

The mask is white with colored ‘sprinkles’ in it. when smoothed over the face, you can momentarily feel the sprinkles. It isn’t an exfoliate though as the sprinkled melt into the mask as you massage it on. It was just a little bit of a strange feeling when first applied.

Today I applied the mask, set my timer and lay back contemplating murder. Or at least alabis.

first applied

No I am not going on a rampage. I came up with an idea for a murder mystery I just need to figure out what my murderer uses for an alibi. I need it to be good enough to withstand the initial inspection but to have one slightly off detail that the intrepid detective can catch and use to prove she did it. I spent fifteen minutes thinking about it and I think I came up with a good one. Fingers crossed it works.

But then I set murder aside and went to wash off the mask. As you can see from the photo much of the mask sunk into my skin and my skin was very happy to have the moisture. I’m a big fan of squalane and hyaluronic acid so this was kind of a win for me.

The mask washed off easily with no scrubbing. As it is a moisturizing mask there was no drying and tightening as there is with clay masks. A few splashes of water and a wipe with a washcloth and the remains of the mask were gone.

Using it three times I can definitely say that my skin felt nourished and hydrated each time. After only a week I can’t say that I actually say any real visible improvement, but moisture is always appreciated and there were no clogged pores in my problem areas. So good moisture and no damage. I did have a craving for cupcakes though. which is rare for me because I am not really a cupcake sort of person.

Despite the odd cupcake craving, I think that I would definitely give the full sized jar of this mask a try. The full size is 100 g and costs $25 at Ulta. This travel size had 10 g of product in it and gave me a full week’s worth of masking.

Which means the larger one would last a while. Approximately ten weeks if my math is correct. that’s not a bad turn around for a $25 product.

(Incidentally Ulta also has the trio of travel sizes for $20. This is the first of the trio I’ve tried so I can’t speak to my feelings on the other two yet.) And as long as it doesn’t cause me to raid little kids birthday parties in a quest for a cupcake fix all will be well. Thumbs up for the Cake My Day.
