New Neutrogena Hydration Mask

I used to use an Olay Anti-Aging facial scrub and Laneige lotion but I’ve replaced a couple of items since then.

I found a new mask from Neutrogena in Target a couple of weeks ago and hadn’t opened it until now, and how I wish I had opened it a bit earlier. The mask is different than anything else I have come across in the drugstore until now. I’m used to the sheet mask dipped in liquids and thick creams that require a face wash afterwards but this was a thin sheet of gel on your face! Also, please be careful when opening the package, if you tend to tip it sideways instead of right side up like me, a stream of the liquid will flow out of the package not. Sheet masks I believe soak up the moisture inside the package while I think the liquid in this package keeps the gel from drying out. It’s two separate pieces with one around the eyes and the other around the mouth. With slips on the mask that will cover your lip and eyes after application you’re really placed in a cooling state.

I laid down with Friends playing in Netflix in the background and just let myself almost fall asleep. Throughout the half hour, the cooling effect doesn’t go away so you know it’s more than just the temperature of the gel. After the incredibly relaxing experience, you’re supposed to run the remaining liquid into your skin and then wash off.

At I believe $2.50 this mask was a steal that I will definitely be returning for. Compared to the other masks I’ve used, I’ve never had the extent of cooling and firming effects in the same mask. Usually one is better than the other and the effects don’t last for as long as they did with this one. In addition, as this is a hydrating mask I’m going to assume that it works out for all skin types.

I would highly recommend!

The One About the Que Bella Masks

We’ve all seen them at Target. I final got curious enough to try it out. They’re available at Target from anywhere between $2 and $4.

In retrospect, I realize I probably shouldn’t have done both masks at the same time but I wanted to try them out. I started off on the left with the Indulgent Rose and Green Tea Mud Mask.

The texture came out more of a cream and it felt and smelled nearly identical to the Body Shop Vitamin E Mask which I also happen to use. Comparatively, I’m sure the Body Shop Vitamin E masks may offer more useful properties compared to Que Bella but it did leave my face feeling refreshed. The mask did eventually dry but not in your typical mud mask texture. It was more of an extremely dense cream on your face.

I moved on to the Refreshing Pomegranate Peel Off Mask. The mask again felt good on the skin and the peel off sensation was indeed refreshing (not in the American Psycho kinda way). However, it didn’t leave me feeling as clear skinned as what I imagine a pore strip would make me feel.  Right after I took off the mask, I actually went online to Amazon and purchased the “Hell Pore Clean Up Mask”. I’ve seen it everywhere online and I’m very excited for it to get here for me to try!

All in all, if you’re looking for a mask to maybe put on during a hot bath or maybe while you’re sitting in your massage chair then Que Bella would definitely be a good option. It succeeds in creating a relaxing experience. However, if you’re looking for a mask that can provide specific things like clear pores, Vitamin E, etc. You’re better off trying a more well known purposeful mask.
