Review: Masker-Aid Face Masks

(Disclaimer: Items sent for review)

How cute is that box? And not it didn’t go in the bin after I’d review the face masks, in fact it now houses all the dried rose petals that I use for my blog pictures…gone a bit off track there. Where was I? Oh yes, face masks :)

 “MaskerAide has launched our first line of 6 superhydrating facial sheet masks that target the skin concerns of fabulous women everywhere”

Since these are from a Canadian brand it only took a bit longer to arrive than usual, but they still arrived for me within two weeks which was quite impressive. Hopefully at some point they will have an online store in the UK but for the moment it’s just Canada.

These face masks are free from: parabens, harsh dyes & pigments, mineral oils, artificial fragrances, benzophenone and glycerins.  I wanted to review these face masks in two sections, starting with Weather Warrior, Beauty Rest’ore and Pre Party Prep and then do a second blog post on I Don’t Wanna Grow Up, All Nighter and Detox Diva, but after trying out mask no.2 I decided my skin couldn’t risk trying out another one.

Basics:

  • $4.99= £3.14
  • Made in Canada
  • Vegan
  • Cruelty-free

I was absolutely shocked when I opened these, most mask like this are very moist but there was so much product in these that I was able to scrape out half and apply it just like that on my face the next day. Absolutely loaded with product!

Weather Warrior: When I first put this on I got this cool moisturising feeling which changed into a warm tingly feeling. When I removed it the skin felt plump and moisturised, but for some reason the skin on my forehead and temple reacted to it and went really red. Not one I’d try again for that reason.

Beauty Rest’ore: After the last mask I wanted to see if I’d get the same reaction. When I first put it on it was very moisturizing,cooling with quite a heavy smell of what I think was Lavander. Felt fine, but this time when I took it off just like the last mask my forehead really didn’t like it and neither did my cheeks or temples. Humm….

Pre Party Prep: This time I let my sister try out the mask to see how she reacted to it. While I have combination and sensitive skin she has normal to dry skin. For her there were no problems at all. No redness, her skin felt plum and firm and she found the mask quite nice.

After my experiences with the first two masks I think I’m not going to review the remaining three masks as my skin is currently sending my brain death-threats for the previous abuse.

After the second mask my whole face felt irritated for the next 24 hours. I can’t for the life of me pin point what exactly my skin didn’t like, my only conclusion is that sensitive skin types should avoid these masks but normal to dry skin types, like my sister, might like these.

    Oh dear, they don’t sound great. Which sheet masks have you tried and would you recommend? I’ve tried Montagne Jeunesse but have found some of their masks make my skin break out a little.

    (Also leaving a comment here to see if comments work as you asked on your FB page if they worked for everyone.)

      I’ve tried the Montagne Jeunesse masks, some I like and some not, but my favorites are the Lush face masks.

      I’ve noticed that they really work perfectly with my skin, there’s always something not quite right going on when I use a face mask from a packet (not the case with all of them but with quite a few)

    Well that’s good to know!! My skin is really sensitive to alot of stuff. I can remember getting a perm once and my skin around my ears just burning from the product they used. I’m sorry these didn’t work out so well for you. That’s upsetting when you look forward to a product but end up with a reaction from it. See if you can’t write the company and tell them of your experience, maybe they can at least change their product to help sensitive skin folks :)

    • Klaire says

      It all depends on the skin type but I would highly recommend Lush’s Mask of Magnaminty, I think it would work quite well for oily skin types. (btw you can go to you local lush store and just ask for a sample size to try it out) :)

    Klaire, would you ever do a compilation of all the face masks or skin products you live by? Also, have you ever tried any of The Body Shop’s aloe or seaweed line?

    • Klaire says

      I have tried a few of the seaweed line from the Body Shop. I didn’t feel that they did much at all. Yes I might a blog post like that at some point, it might end up being my skincare routine video though :)

    Do these masks contain green tea? I am HIGHLY sensitive to green tea…can’t drink it, ingest it in any way or use beauty products that contain it. I react with irritated swollen hives…HORRIBLE! A lot of people don’t realize you can be allergic to green tea because it’s supposed to be so good for you. Klaire, if these masks have it in them, you may want to find out if this is the cause of your reaction.

      I’m not sure if it has Green tea but I’m sure I’m not allergic to it since I drink the stuff by the gallon :)
