Happy face mask Friday everyone! It’s the weekend finally. Every Friday I share and review face masks with you all. Skincare is so important and should be to everyone. I love a good pamper session and adding masks to my skincare routine have really helped my skin and the opportunity to have a pamper.
By reviewing different brands and their skincare range, I hope gives you all the opportunity to learn a little more before you buy and try new products/brands out. The majority of masks I buy are ones that will benefit my skin type. My skin type being normal to dry. However, if the masks look interesting and cool then I am open to trying them too. I prefer masks you can apply over sheet masks because I just can’t get sheets to fit my face properly, I am still on the lookout for one that does.
Today’s mask is one that caught my eye being that it is holographic. It’s a peel off mask too which I love because it’s fascinating to stick on and try to pull off in one go. Masque is a brand I have heard of before but haven’t or hardly used. It was definitely the holographic part that made me want to buy this. The mask is to help revitalize, moisturise and illuminate the appearance of skin.
Like always I read the instructions because you never can guess how long to wear it! If in the wrong light it was difficult to read because of the holographic silver simmer across the bottom of the pack. It tells you to apply a thin even layer across your face and that is what I did.
When applying I thought the mask was a little too sticky and the quantity that came out a time was more than needed. It was ever so slightly silver in colour but on my face looked clear with a shimmer. I wouldn’t say it was holographic just on my face, but my finger was a holographic pink colour when I had finished applying. Even if you brushed over a place with the mask on it felt sticky and left a circle looking like stringy Pritt stick.
The instructions say to leave for 10-20 minutes, so that is what I did. I love this about masks you can get on with your day whilst wearing it. Today I read my book for the time. Another thing I love is waiting for the mask to dry, when you try to use your motions and the mask is hard and wrinkly. Weird I know but fascinating to me.
Once the time was up, I was instructed to peel the mask off from edges but from the top of my face to the bottom. Most of the time peel off masks hurt a little to pull off however this seemed to come away easy. I always try to peel off in one go. Today I managed it! If you have any extra patches that will just not budge use tonner to remove.
Holographic wise the mask only showed a glimpse on my finger and on the side of the mask that touched my face. More of a baby metallic pink to be fair. So, if you want it for this reason, I would opt for do not buy.
I slept well the night I used the mask so for a good night’s sleep this may come in handy. Whether it was the mask or just me that is something we can only guess!
If I reviewed this on what the mask is meant to do, I would say that the mask didn’t do anything for me. I feel like my skin is drier now in my t-zone area and could do with some moisturizing. Ok I didn’t add my lip balm last night but my lips and area around are rough and dry too.
Based on this I really couldn’t give this mask a high rating. The only good thing is the price. Its relatively cheap and you would get two masks out of one pack. But why use a mask that doesn’t do what it says it will?
I really can’t say that I actually got a good result out of this mask. Recommendation wise, I wouldn’t buy it. Out of all the masks I have tried this has to be one of the worse to perform like it should. If you were having a teenager’s spa party, then maybe because you’re not going to expect much from it. But for skincare genuinely I would say no.
Adding holographic to the name, they need to actually make it more holographic than it is. The pack has more holographic to it than the mask itself.
Would you expect more from this mask, in colour and in performance? Have you tried this mask before? Do you have one you’d like me to review?
