Time to talk about Skin Owl. This small indie green beauty brand has a few fabulous skincare items in it’s arsenal. I’ve tried the Eye+ and recently decided to grab the new Beauty Whip and Neck+.
Beauty Whip is a mask that can be used a few ways. Details per Skin Owl:
Discover the beauty benefits behind our all-in-one face mask, makeup primer, and Beauty Drops booster. One application reveals the look of intense moisture, even texture and tone, and a visibly brighter complexion. This gentle, creamy skin-drenching mask is boosted with fierce hydrators like Hyaluronic Acid, Organic Olive and Jojoba Oils, plus antioxidant rich Patagonian Maqui Berry, Organic Rooibos, toning DMAE, and smoothing MSM. Intended for all skin types.Vegan. Gluten-free.
Annie Tip: I love mixing one pump’s worth with my Geranium Beauty Drops. It acts as a moisture booster and a makeup primer. I keep it in the fridge for extra plumping. The chilly application is amazing during this hot LA summer!
Directions Apply a thin layer to cleansed skin, avoiding eye area. Leave on for up to thirty minutes. Can be used as an overnight mask and rinsed off in the morning. Follow with the Beauty Drops of your choice. Best when refrigerated.

This is a hydrating face mask. It’s a combination between a cream and oil. It very much reminds me of Kat Burki’s Complete B Vital Hydration Mask. You can leave it on for 30 minutes or use as an overnight mask. You could even use this as a face cream in the day, there’s no reason you really can’t do that. The creamy texture melts right into skin for instant hydration. What I love about this is that it’s not too greasy. This has oils, but it’s also very creamy. So it’s not an oily texture nor a heavy cream texture.
The scent is very light, lightly floral and also slightly fruity from the Maqui Berry. This has tons of amazing skincare ingredients like aloe, plant extracts, green tea leaf extract (one of my favorites), white tea extract, hyaluronic acid, antioxidant rich Maqui berry, skin protecting oils and MSM. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a sulfur compound found naturally in our bodies and some plants. You can take MSM as a supplement for joint health and it touts other uses and claims. It’s also been talked about as the beauty mineral to help with anti-aging and skin health. It does this by supporting collagen production and health, as well as being anti-inflammatory. I like seeing MSM in more and more products.
I am head over heels for this mask. It’s really hydrating without being too heavy or greasy. I never broke out while using it. You can dry towel this off, wash it off or just leave it on overnight. I love the glass bottle with pump it’s perfect. This was the perfect hydrating mask, the oils and cream combination hydrates insanely well without being too much. It leaves no oily residue behind, just super soft skin.
Neck+ sounds like a neck product only, but it’s really perfect as a face and neck serum. Details per Skin Owl:
A symphony of healing herbs, restorative plant and flower compounds, and Ocean Mineral Complex in a super concentrated, bio-available delivery system. Our first ever super-smoothing & contouring neck concentrate made with superstar age-defying ingredients to create a smooth, youthful, and contoured neck and décolleté. Skin looks smooth, supple, and quenched, with dark spots & crease marks visibly reduced. Tight, toned, and radiant skin will be the evidence of this product’s efficacy.
Directions Apply a small amount to entire face, neck and décolleté after showering. Allow to dry. Follow with SkinOwl’s Body Oil. Suitable for all skin types. For external use only. Can be used daily.
Aqua (Deionized Water), Hamamelis Virginiana Water (Witch Hazel), Dimethyl Sulfone (MSM), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Organic Aloe), Sea Water Extract (Ocean Mineral Concentrate), Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil (Organic Jojoba Oil), Achillea Millefolium Extract (Yarrow), Chondrus Crispus Extract (Irish Moss), Curcuma Longa Rhizome Extract (Organic Turmeric), Spirulina Maxima Extract, Hydroxyethyl Ethylcellulose, Carrageenan, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Ethylhexylglycerin
Neck+ is a clear liquid gel serum for the neck. It smells faintly like aloe, is weightless in texture and sinks right into the skin. It’s very lightly hydrating, more like a light gel serum. Packed with wonderful things like aloe, witch hazel, MSM (see above), sea water extract, red algae, anti-inflammatory turmeric, spirulina and some jojoba oil for skin protection. It’s a lovely combination.
This comes packaged in a glass bottle with pump. Perfect. You get a huge bottle that lasts forever. I use this on both my neck and face, no reason you can use this as a facial serum as well. Now, does this tighten and brighten my neck area? Not so much. While it’s full of antioxidants and skin loving ingredients it’s not the best at tightening to that visible of a degree. To be fair all the neck serums and creams I try claim the same thing, and they always fall short in my opinion too. However, I’m only 39 I don’t have a sagging neck yet. If I had sagging skin on my neck I might be able to see a more profound difference.
I think it’s an amazing antioxidant, anti-inflammatory hydrating gel serum. Perfect for layering in the daytime. I would repurchase. Just not for the reasons listed on the bottle.
