I’ve done a little masking!
This is a cream one. It smelled of strawberry. There was a slight cooling, tingling sensation. I rinsed it off in the shower, and afterward, my skin felt very soft. Not awesome, not terrible.
I just want to take a minute to appreciate that Hey! Pinko Girl has the most adorable packaging ever. I feel like I need to say something positive about it because I’m about to…not.
I think this might work for someone who has a smaller everything than I do. It’s a relatively thick cloth mask that’s literally lacy so there are lots of open air spaces. The mask has two sets of ear loops – one that holds the mask to your face, and one that holds the neck strap on. That’s a lot of stuff behind the ears. I couldn’t wear my glasses and, even though I felt like I could have used a silicone mask cover on top to keep the essence from evaporating due to the lacy texture, there’s no way I could have fit one on with the ear loops I was already wearing. I felt like this was fairly ineffective because of the actual construction of the sheet. I have a few more to use, but won’t buy more.
This one was lovely! My skin likes fruit essences and acids. The sheet itself was a medium thickness and was wide enough for my large face. It smelled like berries. There was a very pleasant tingle. It wasn’t drippy and didn’t dry out my face. Win!
And then there’s this guy. He’s cute, don’t get me wrong! The sheet was very rigid and difficult to mold to the face. It smelled very medicinal – very much like the Montagne Jeunesse sheet masks, which I didn’t like. It performed like them too. There was some burning on the tops of my cheeks – my usual trouble spots – so I took it off early. It was, however, adorable to look at before I put it on. Afterward, however…
