When toddlers are part of your life, at home spa treatments become a cause of celebration with friends!
So when ToGoSpa offered me some samples of their eye and lip mask treatments, I called my best girlies over and we had a night of mimosas and facials.
Or rather, we tried to. You see, my toddler (they really are adorably wretched creatures!) took the eye masks and hid them in my husbands shoes. So when my girlies were over, we were only able to try out the lip masks.
A couple of days later, with the discovery of the eye masks in the shoes, I went ahead and tried out the eye masks solo. But before I give my / our review, allow me to share a bit more about ToGoSpa:

Girls Night With ToGoSpa
So, as I mentioned earlier, when we had our girls night we were only able to use the LIPS treatment. I had to use the hidden-in-the-shoe eyes all by my onesie. So first up is LIPS!
You basically have to open the little foil packet, take the silicon texture moistened lip forms out of the package, and then drape it on your lips. I say drape, because it really did not have any sticky texture to speak of.
If you tried to talk, bend over, whatever, the lips would fall off. This was NOT really a good feature for girls night. Relaxing night all alone with a good book, maybe. Girls night with talking and laughing and making racy jokes, not so much.
There were far too many jokes about the texture and temperature of the lip forms (fermented jizz was mentioned more than once), but the lip treatment was cooling and refreshing, even if it did leave the lips a little on the dry side after treatment.
Now for the eyes! I did these bamboo charcoal eyes all by myself since I found them DAYS after our initial girls night (yay, toddlers!) but I found them to be far more relaxing, and effective than the lips appeared to be.
For one, the eye masks actually stayed on, even with talking and moving around, they stuck pretty firmly to my face. They felt cooling (almost chilly) and refreshing. While I did not see any drastic difference in my eye skin / natural white girl raccoon eyes right away, I can say they felt refreshing and nice. Here are some quick tips from ToGoSpa on how best to use the eye masks:
Tip from ToGoSpa
For an especially refreshing sensation, chill EYES in the refrigerator before applying. Effective in combating puffy eyes, dark circles, bags, and general fatigue.
Use EYES as a pre-photo perk for the perfect picture.
Use EYES as the perfect “Morning After Mask” to diminish dark circles and puffiness and restore a vibrant look after a night on the town.
Use EYES while traveling. Use them in-flight to help relax during the trip, or as a refresher before landing.
EYES are best enjoyed when applied for 15 – 20 minutes in a quiet serene environment. However, EYES can be equally effective on the go.
