About a month ago I did a post reviewing a few of the Que Bella facial masks that I had tried and about a week later I went and purchased 10 more masks! This brand has a good variety of masks to try so there is definitely something for everyone. To check out the first two masks that I’ve tried then click HERE. Each week I will be reviewing two different masks. Therefore, if you are in the market for some new masks to try out then make sure you check back every Friday for a new post on the Que Bella masks that I have purchased. For now, check inside for the reviews on their Deep Cleansing and Pore Minimizing masks.
First, I always like to talk about the packaging. I’ve stated this in my first post and will include it in every post as well…. Overall, the packaging is cute but not very functional. Only because once you open the package you can’t reseal it. There’s more than one application worth of product (at least 4) so it would be nice if you could reseal it so the product doesn’t dry out. I was afraid that there would only be one application considering how low the price is but I’m so glad I was wrong. I would recommend having a small jar or container on hand to transfer the product into from the package. That way you can seal it so the mask won’t dry out. Otherwise you can use a rubber band, staples, clip or anything else you have to close the package. I just personally find a jar more useful.
The purpose of the Deep Cleansing Aloe Vera mask is to “target problem areas of oily, normal and T-Zone skin.” It also helps to “cleanse acne-prone skin keeping it in check and helping to moisturize, nourish and renew.” This mask has a thin and creamy consistency which makes it super easy to apply. It has a light beige color to it but once you apply it to your skin it practically goes clear so you can’t really tell you have anything on. The formula makes me think of a thick moisturizer rather than a typical “mask” formula. This mask has a pretty strong Aloe Vera smell when I first apply it but after a few minutes I can’t smell it anymore. It’s not one of my favorite scents but it’s not terrible. When I first applied this mask it did leave a slight tingling feeling but went away pretty quickly. The mask did harden a bit as it dried and made my skin look very matte. Once I rinse it off my skin felt and looked smooth, clear and soft.
The next mask I tried was their Pore Minimizing mask. This mask is “enriched with Rosemary, Nettle and Camphor Extracts” in order to “thoroughly cleanse pores whilst Iris Extract, Vitamin A Palmitate and Zinc Salt sooth and rebalance your skin, leaving a refreshed, smooth sensation.” This mask has a thicker consistency than the last mask but it’s still quite creamy. It also has a very strong “menthol” or “peppermint” smell to it. I personally like that smell so it doesn’t bother me but it might bother some people. However, the smell does go away after a few moments. When I first apply the mask it always stings a bit or feels like a very intense cooling sensation but after a few minutes it goes away. I mainly apply this mask to the center of my face but still cover most of it. Now, I’ll be honest, when it came time to try this mask out I thought to myself, “This will probably be pointless since I don’t even have large pores.” Even so, I applied the mask, waited 15 minutes and then rinsed it off. After I rinsed it off I can say that this mask TRULY WORKS! My skin looked so SMOOTH and EVEN! I was honestly quite shocked because I was not expecting those results. My skin also looked quite clear and wasn’t irritated which was great. This mask did not leave my skin feeling dry whatsoever but felt refreshed.
Overall both masks are really nice. I would highly recommend the Deep Cleansing mask for people with oily skin. I could tell that it absorbed all the excess oil and impurities in my skin but did not over strip the skin of moisture. Our skin needs oil/moisture in order to be healthy and that mask did a great job of removing just the right amount. I was so impressed with the Pore Minimizing mask and I am definitely going to keep repurchasing it. If you want to have smoother and more even looking skin then you need to try that mask out. I highly, HIGHLY recommend that mask! Hope you found this review helpful and check back next Friday for two more Que Bella masks reviews!
