Product Review: SpaLife Nourishing Orange Facial Mask

You guys know that I love a good facial mask, so I always look forward to my monthly beauty boxes - hoping that they will include a mask. The August Target beauty box didn't disappoint!

SpaLife Nourishing Orange Facial Mask

It included a sheet mask from SpaLife, which is a brand I had never heard of, but they carry at Target stores. They have several different masks, but the one I received was the Nourishing Orange mask.

The website says that this mask is recommended for dry, normal, and combination skin for deep hydration, brightening, and moisturizing. It is sulfate-free, dye-free, and paraben-free.

Let's start with the things I liked about this mask:

One of my biggest complaints about sheet masks is that they don't cover the undereye area. If I'm treating my face, that area is one of the ones that needs the most attention! This mask, instead of cutting out huge holes for the eyes, left the "flaps" attached at the bottom - so you could bring them up to cover the area under your eyes! Genius! We'll talk more in a minute about whether that worked or not...

I prefer my masks to be fragrance-free, but even though this one contained fragrance, it didn't cause any irritation on my skin. My skin felt hydrated after using it.

Now, let's talk about what I didn't like:

The "fabric". Whatever this was made of, it was so stiff I couldn't get it to conform to my face and stay in place. It was also very large, so I had a lot of material to try to fold over. It was too stiff to stay folded. To me, part of what makes a mask good is a nice smooth fit. Then when you remove it, your skin looks smooth and plumped. This one left my face full of indentations (like I had slept on a bunch of wrinkles) where the serum had absorbed unevenly. Also, the little eye "flaps" that I think are genius wouldn't stay folded down.

While the fragrance (or the orange) didn't irritate my skin, it made my eyes burn a little while I had the mask on.

Would I buy it? No. It's only $2.49, but I would rather pay more and get a mask that fits properly so my skin can absorb all of the nutrients. I do think it would be great if other mask manufacturers would leave those little eye flaps on their masks. With the proper "fabric", it would be simple to position them to cover the area under your eyes and they would stay in place.

So this one is a fail for me. Have you tried any of the SpaLife masks? Which ones - and what did you think?
