If you follow me on Instagram, you know I used a mud mask earlier this week. I tested out the Shea Moisture Peace Rose Oil Complex Facial Mask for sensitive skin. According to the packaging, the mask is moisturizing and purifying. The ingredients includes: Date Palm, Musk Rose Oil, Shea Butter, Alpine, and Camellia Extract. I had no clue that Shea Moisture even made facial masks until I looked at the Pinch Me site. When I saw the sample pack was listed as an available item for my box, I had to have it.
When I received the package, I assumed the package only contained enough product for one mask; however, I quickly realized there was enough for two applications. Target sells the Shea Moisture Peace Rose Oil Complex Facial Mask in two sizes. There is the sample pack ($2.99) that I received and a 6-oz container ($14.99). If you use the Shop At Home site, you will receive 1% cash back from your Target online purchase. You can have the mask shipped or use in-store pickup. If you use in-store pickup, you will still receive the cash back if you make the purchase online. That’s what I normally do for Walmart using the Shop At Home or Ebates site…purchase online and pickup at the store.
Anywho, I used the mask after washing my face using the Cerave Hydrating Cleanser. I followed the cleanser with the Dermalogica Microfoliant that I reviewed here. Next, I steamed my face for 5 minutes. I allowed my face to dry completely before applying the mask.
I was a little worried after I followed my normal steps that the mask would burn my face when I applied it like most other masks. However, I didn’t experience any burning. That made me super happy!
After removing the mask, I noticed that my skin looked brighter and felt hydrated and soft. I waited a few days to give my full thoughts because I wanted to see how my face would respond to the mask. I noticed a little red section next to my nose for a couple of days, but I didn’t breakout. When I applied foundation, you couldn’t see the redness and it never turned into any form of acne or bumps. So I assume it was just an area where my face had extra oil and the mask pulled it to the surface.
Not having a reaction is a plus because that clears me to use the rest of the package. Woot! Woot! I’m glad to find a sensitive skin mask that you can really use on sensitive skin.
The only con to the mask is the fragrance. It took me a bit to figure out the scent. First, I thought I was smelling the rose oil; however, while removing the mask, I realized the scent reminded me of Nair. I’ve used Nair for years, so the smell doesn’t bother me. But, if you are scent sensitive, I wanted to put that out there for you.
Anywho, it’s time for a little pampering and catching up with the BBC ladies. Let’s see what they were up to last week.
