I love masks, as almost everyone I know does. Not only do they help your skin, but they are fun to use. I recently purchased this e.l.f Mattifying Mask and I really wasted no time in using it. I really love clay masks but they can break the bank, seeing that e.l.f Cosmetics has this beauty for only $8 you know I had to get it. Apparently it has French Green clay, which is a little weird since the mask isn’t green, but It is what it is. This mask deep cleans your skin while minimizing the appearance of pores, which I recently have been having a problem with. Plus with summer my face tends to look shiny so I hoped this would help. Plus it’s vegan and cruelty free so Hello? a win-win all around.
The mask was easy to spread across my face and was smooth in texture. Plus I realized early on that a little actually goes a long way, which is great. It makes me optimistic that this mask would last me a while. It took around 10 mins for it to dry completely, which is fast as most clay masks take at least 15. my face was not shiny at all and I noticed a different with my pores. My skin was also very smooth, and not dry at all like most other masks. This would be a great morning mask to use on those light make up days. When I am out I am most certainly repurchasing!
So Today I bring you Queen Helene Grape Seed Peel-Off Masque. This was a impulse buy at my Local Bed, Bath and Beyond, I had gone for deodorant, and left with a armful of products (isn’t that how it always is?). I love peel-off masks, I kinda turn into a little girl when I peel it off and pretend It’s my skin, don’t tell me you all don’t do the same! This mask is meant for Normal To combination skin and is meant to unclog pores, while brightening and evening out your complexion. On my first tie using it it was so hard to get out of the tube that the packaging tore towards the top, not whenever I try to use it it also comes out of the hole which annoys the me so much!
The Product is sticky almost like it’s already partly dried, which makes the product very hard to spread on my face evenly, I usually end up with more on certain parts of my face then necessary. This also makes it harder to avoid eyebrows and my hair line, which as anyone who has used a peel off mask knows is extremely hard to remove from hair. it takes approx 10-15 mins for the product to dry on my face. The mask is easy to remove (and fun!) and makes my skin feel so soft and smooth, I do believe it does unclog my pores, I am not sure about evening out or brightening my skin tone as I don’t have to much of a problem with that.
Over all I really like the mask, I just wish It was not so hard to get out of the squeeze tube so I didn’t tear a hole in it.
