The pros: Trader Joe’s Rich Hydrating Face Sheet Mask is new, inexpensive, cooling, and hydrating.
The cons: I looked absolutely ridiculous wearing this. There is a tingling sensation that not everyone will appreciate.
The verdict: After reviewing two dessert items, I need a caloric break. So on to the health and beauty aid aisle.
I don’t know if Trader Joe’s is taking inspiration from fashion. You know how the bathing suits appear in February? And how the supply of winter coats is usually dwindling just as winter is kicking in? Same here, it seems the products are a bit out of sync with the weather outside.
Except for this one.
I know wearing one of these goofy masks is all the rage right now in beauty. With spa prices what they are it is easy to understand why. Twenty minutes of relaxing is what this needs. If you can’t just sit and relax, it did a good job of staying on my face without any help.
Now for starters, my skin is sensitive and dry. Even in this weather. Speaking of this weather, where I am has been very hot. Worse still is that we are never having a dry heat. Nope, visit NYC in July or August and you’ll be slapped with as much humidity as parts of the tropics.
Which is also why I really liked this product. This mask was super cooling. It was slightly tingly. But more importantly is was like a blast of air conditioning on my face. For the whole twenty minutes. Seriously.
The mask fit decently enough for a something that looked like it belonged on a mime. Or the love child of Freddy Krueger and Jason. But looking bad for 20 minutes is totally worth it. No perfect fit, but for sitting on the couch, it was good enough.
There is a smell to this, it’s cucumber all the way. So if you are sensitive, it isn’t neutral in smell. Otherwise, most of the masks moisture absorbed nicely into my skin.
Now, I paused to write this review. I have sensitive skin. So sometimes, usually the next morning, my skin gives a verdict. Often times with skin products, I’m rewarded with a breakout. Not this time. My skin felt even better after an overnight rest.
For $1.99 it’s affordable and worth a try. I liked it. It did everything it was asked to do.
