Masqueology Brightening Mask

We’re already face mask devotees, and these single-use packs make it easier for us to get our fix. Each mask is a majorly refreshing pick-me-up after a day at the beach or before a big night out; they can even be used as a skin saver during a long flight. Smooth one on right before landing and you’ll arrive even glowier than when you left (you may want to warn your row-mates, though).

My first Birchbox was extremely disappointing. This product was the only product that i would even consider buying. It was refreshing and my skin felt soft all night. I am usually not a huge masque person, but i have to say that I didn't hate this at all. This alone was nearly worth the 10 dollars that I paid for this month. I am really hoping that next month is better for what i actually would use.

I did not enjoy using this mask. It stays wet depsite keeping it on for 20 minutes, and the leftover product that the packaging suggested to rub into my skin left my face feeling oily and dirty.

Worth a Try
Sampled

If you're concerned about looking silly while you try a masque, perhaps this isn't for you. I found during application it felt soggy and cool, after the 20 minutes passed and I pulled it off, the fluid mixture was a little slimy on my face but I trusted the instructions that a little massaging would work it in. A complaint I've seen elsewhere was "stickiness". While it absorbs the mixture feels initially sticky, but that quickly resolves itself.

Personally I found my skin looked more even the next day, so from my experience I'd say use it the night before. I also found that my perpetual dark circles under my eyes looked greatly improved.

These are too expensive to a regular beauty routine ($8 a single use), but perhaps when you want a little refreshing.

Easy and convenient!

Easy to apply, I love the pre-soaked mask. I have not seen anything like this before so I enjoyed the uniqueness. Skin felt great afterward! Great to use at night after taking off my makeup.

This is not an $8 per masque item. This is more like a $1 per masque item. I do not feel that this product was brightening in any way, and the masque was uncomfortably slimy. Sorry masqueology

I really love face masks and can't wait to try more of these. They feel nice and have lots of serum.

I thought this mask was okay...but it didn't fit comfortably and the serum left my face feeling tacky and gross. One pro is that it did leave my skin feeling soft after I washed the excess off.

Fun mask!
Sampled

This product seems like a pretty innovative way to apply a facial mask. Once I got the hang of how to arrange it on my face and pressed it down in such a way to get it to stay on on its own, it felt nice - soft and cooling. It has a sweet / herbal / fresh scent that is not overpowering, but smells clean and natural. I left mine on for 20 minutes as instructed, and it left quite a bit of product behind on my face, which dried quickly as I worked it into my face and neck. I didn't notice any immediate effects, but that may be because my skin's in pretty good shape already from similar products and weekly peels I already use. Two days after using I experienced cystic acne, which I NEVER, ever get. I have had it twice in my life, and I'm in my late 20's. I am concerned it might've been the mask, so I probably won't try this again, but think everyone should give this a shot because it's so fun to use, smells awesome, and the ingredients are fantastic.

Not that Great
Sampled

I was not a fan of this mask. I could not get it to stay on my face. After the 20 minutes were up and I took the mask off, there was so much residue leftover that I had to take another 5 minutes to rub it in all. Overall, I wasn't that impressed. My skin has felt better after using other masks, and I don't think it's one I'll be purchasing.
