For a couple of months, I've been into face masks. They leave my skin feeling great. At Walmart they have samples of these masks and I definitely took advantage of this. Mainly because this gives me an opportunity to try the mask out, before purchasing the full size. These sample packets only cost about $1.37. I only got these, because they seemed the most interesting. These masks are also good for all skin types! Another important thing about these masks is that, it is not tested on animals an does not include parabens. I do not know much about parabens, except that they can cause irritation to the skin.
The Pomegranate peel-off mask refines and purifies the skin. It gently purges dirt and excess oils from the skin, for a cleaner refined surface. As an 8 antioxidant infused with: Acai, Goji, Mango, Mangosteen, Cranberry, Noni, Pomegranate, and Blueberry. These guard the skin, against free radicals and environmental stress. It says that this package contains up to, 2 to 4 applications. I would have to disagree, for me it was only a 1 time use. When I opened the package the color was a light purple color, but when applied to the skin it was clear. The product is sticky, but it washes off of the hands easily. I like how it's easy to apply to my face. After 5 to 10 minutes, I peel off the mask and I rinse my face off with warm water. In the end my face feels soft, most importantly it's refreshed and hydrated! Overall, I loved the Pomegranate Peel- Off mask.
Unlike the Pomegranate peel-off mask, I did not want to try this next mask. I read the warning signs and I was too nervous about it. The Banana- Oat Instant Smoothing Mask, is an exfoliating smoothie for radiant skin. When I first saw this I was excited to try it out, until I saw the warnings. Prior to first application, perform a patch test on the inside of your arm, 24 hours prior to applying to your face to check for potential irritation. So I did the patch test earlier around 10:30 in the morning, so it hasn't been 24 hours for me yet. During this time I was hesitant about trying this out. I also read on the back that you can't use this on skin that is sunburned, irritated, sensitive, or within 24 hours of waxing. It's not recommended for users of any topical or orally- or prescribed acne, Vitamin A derived, skin exfoliation medication. Slight tingling, mild itching or some temporary skin redness are normal reactions to a highly active exfoliate. This gave me relief, but I am still uncomfortable with using it. This mask contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids, which rapidly exfoliates dull skin cells. That great that it exfoliated dull skin cells, but these acids may increase skin's sensitivity to the sun and possibly sunburn. You have to use sunscreen and limit sun exposure a week after use. This is why I will not be using this mask, unfortunately because I thought it sounded great. You can use this, but I just wanted to let you know if you did try this.
