Review: Make Your Own Beauty Masks illustrated by Emma Trithart

I know a book about making your own face masks may be something you never thought I’d review, but I am a huge skincare geek. Besides reading, makeup and skincare are my two biggest interests. For the past few years I have been committed to making my routine more natural and simpler. Today’s review of Make You Own Beauty Masks is the perfect holiday gift!


Luxuriating! Refreshing! Renewing!

This book has simple and fun recipes that feature wholesome ingredients you can find in your fridge or pantry. Whether you are dry-skinned, oily, or just want refreshing “me-time,” find a recipe that best suits your needs. Mix the ingredients together in a blender or a bowl and apply the mask for ten to twenty minutes. You’ll finish with gorgeous, fresh skin!


(Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.)

Make Your Own Beauty Masks is perfect for anyone who wants to introduce more natural ingredients into your beauty routine. It’s a total win. I’ve been thinking a lot about sustainability and realizing that my sheet masks just produce a lot of waste. Don’t get me wrong. I love a good mask and reading pairing. Make Your Own Beauty Masks is a way to relax, while also producing less single use trash. With natural ingredients you can easily buy it’s simple and fun to use.

In my photo I used just a few ingredients I had lying around the house and made this fabulous coffee egg white mask. Being a huge skincare geek, I already knew about the fabulous properties of coffee, great for a skin pick me up, and egg whites, for tightening. There’s also coconut oil to moisturize. While you remove, the coffee powder is an amazing physical exfoliant. It’s a win all around.

With ten masks included, it’s a fantastic holiday gift. The recipe makes a ton, so you can do a few masks or host a slumber party. You could even use the recipes to make holiday DIY gifts which is how I’m going to use this book!

Make Your Own Beauty Masks is also the first book from the new Odd Dot imprint from Macmillan and I can’t wait to see what other useful books they have in store for us! Find Make Your Own Beauty Masks on Goodreads, Amazon, and the Macmillan website.
