Balea Face Masks

I was out at Shoppers Drug Mart last week and saw these face masks on for $1.50, I can't resist a good deal.

Tonight I'm trying out the Pore Refining Face Mask, it claims it's anti-aging, but that's not the reason I got it (although preventing aging would be fantastic!)

The instructions say:
Thoroughly cleanse face.  Apply evenly over face, avoiding delicate eye and lip areas. Leave for 10-15 minutes.  Peel off mask starting at the corners, never pull. Rinse off any residue with warm water and pat dry. For best results use weekly as part of your beauty regime.
When you squeeze it out of the  package it's really thick, like honey. It says it's "Siberian Ginseng", the ingredients also include lemongrass and kelp, and oh boy does it ever smell like ginseng. Once you smell ginseng you will recognize the smell anywhere. It also has a very slight lemongrass hint to it as well.

It gets tighter as it dries out and starts to feel funny around the 5-8 min mark.

Removing it was very simple. It came off all in 1 piece for the most part, only some super thin areas on the edges ripped away. After my skin feels very soft but not dry. You have to remember that when it comes to your pore size, there is nothing you can do to make them smaller. It's like asking for your hair to grow a different colour, it's not going to happen. Your pores are what create the oils in your skin, larger pores = more oil. On the plus side oilier skin means less fine lines and wrinkles.

I would definitely buy this product again, for $1.50 why not! It's a fun to peel the mask off. I'd definitely suggest this for younger girls looking for something fun to do at a slumber party.

  1. I absolutely love the honey scrub one. And the chocolate mask. I can't wait for you to try those and review them. :)
