On top of having naturally dry skin, I experienced having the worst skin condition during chemo. The chemo just over-dried my skin that it even hurt to have any facial expression. My doctors told me I just needed to continue to hydrate. I was slabbing on moisturizers and vaseline like no other. Unfortunately, my skin still managed to be dry, rough, and patchy. So I decided to experiment with different brands.
One day after my surgery, I had my cousin and sister run to a store and I asked them to get me a really good face mask. They returned with Patchology’s mud masque in sheet mask style. They were told it was one of the best masks. So we tried it. Since this mud mask was packaged like a sheet mask I love how it didn’t make any mess! Washing it off my face was so easy. If you used a mud mask before then you know it is messy and stubborn to wash off. After I dried my face, I couldn’t stop touching my face. It’s so rare to find a mask that made my face sooooo silky smooth. I couldn’t believe it! From that experience, I became a Patchology fan.
The rest of Patchology’s line is amazing. A lot of their products are made for a girl on the go. Their eyepatch gel, lip renewal gel, and sheet mask only require 5 minutes! I was shocked and hesitant about the 5 minutes, but as soon as I took off the mask, the masks did what it was supposed to do. Seriously amazing!! With me trying to juggle work, the blog, and other personal stuff, their skincare line could not have been more perfect. I always feel like I am limited with time that it can make it hard to dedicate time to take care of my skin. Patchology makes it so easy to take care of your skin.
For those of you who are not familiar with the Patchology line, Patchology is a lifestyle-inspired skincare brand that creates products designed to keep up with busy people’s on-the-go needs.

It deeply hydrates your skin for even more moisture. This mask only takes 5 minutes and it leaves you with a dewy look.

FLASHMASQUE 5 MINUTE FACIAL SHEETS: ILLUMINATE This sheet mask brightens your skin. It is designed to even out your skin tone while hydrating your skin. This mask leaves you with a perfect glow.
I am seriously in love with this brand. If it was able to help my skin during chemo (and it was bad), then I know for sure it is the best of the best. Although this post is sponsored, I was a Patchology fan before they reached out to me (as noted above, discovered them during treatments). So you can imagine how excited I was when they wanted to work with me! If you guys try them out (don’t forget 25% off with code RACH25), I really want to know what you think! Did it help you with your Winter skin woes?
