Review: Queen Helene's Grape Seed Extract Peel Off Masque
So while I was gone in MA to visit my friend Brooke, I got a whole load of packages (coming home was like Christmas morning! woohoo!) and one was a big order I placed from Head2ToeBeauty. With that order I bought a bunch of new ChinaGlaze polishes and some Color Club, but also quite a few Ardell lashes and a bunch of Queen Helene masks. The Mint Julep masque is such a cult fave, I wanted to try out the other masques and see how they held up. Today, I tried out the Grape Seed Extract Peel off masque.
I applied this to a clean face, and the first real thing I noticed was the really weird texture. the texture of the masque reminds me of melted gummy bears, as weird as that sounds! its liquid but sticky and kinda pulls like taffy, if that makes sense.
The smell isn’t too bad, I couldn’t really smell it on my skin once it was applied. I applied this all over my face but really concentrated on areas I knew needed it, like my chin and nose. You leave it on for 10 minutes until it dries, and instead of your face looking like you dipped it in Vaseline, it gives off more of a glassy look.
Once its all the way dry, you simply peel it off, starting at the jawline and working upwards. I gotta say though, pulling it off is weird! It doesn’t hurt, it kinda feels like pulling weak tape off your face. The weird part is that when you’re peeling the masque off, it kinda looks like you’re peeling off a layer of skin. eeek!
Once it’s off though, I can definitely feel a difference in my skin, it feels much more refreshed and smooth. I’ll definitely keep using this one and hopefully will see some noticeable results!
