Thanks to @Neutrogena for sending me these products.
I received this product from Neutrogena for testing and review purposes. All opinions are my own. #ItsInTheGel @Neutrogena
There are three different gel masks to choose from in the Neutrogena gel mask line; hydrating, brightening and purifying. The hydrating mask helps alleviate dry skin by using hyaluronic acid. The brightening mask uses vitamin B3 to increase radiance, smooth texture and evenly tone the skin. The purifying mask contains seaweed extract and 50% more essence than your traditional paper mask to really purify your skin. These hydrogel masks use “Innovative technology from South Korea to fuse nourishing essences with a polymer derived from seaweed to form a translucent, flexible sheet.” – Quote from Neutrogena campaign
I received the brightening and purifying gel masks as well as purifying clay mask to test out. Each is only a one time use. I tried out the purifying gel mask first. Instructions say to wash face then apply mask and leave on for 15 to 30 minutes. When I opened the package the scent was so nice; floral, clean and refreshing. The mask applies in two pieces; a lower one for the chin and under the nose and the larger one for the rest of your face. It stays on very well. I was able to get up and walk around without fear that it would slip off. It contours to the face and stays put. I LOVED the feel of this mask. It was nice and cool feeling and the scent made me very calm. After 20 minutes I took off the mask and rubbed the remaining product into my face. My skin felt soft, smooth and refreshed. It was a little red at first but after 5 minutes everything was back to normal.
The top part of the mask had two eye flaps that folded down. I was a little confused about this. I folded them up over my eyes and it felt nice but I was up and walking around so I didn’t keep them on.
I also tried out the clay mask. This is a one time use, just like the gel mask. It comes in a cute little 0.3 Fl. Oz. container which is more than enough to cover the face. This container is great for travel; just use and throw out. There are only two clay masks in the line; purifying and hydrating. I applied this mask with an old foundation brush and spread evenly over my face. It smells just like the gel mask; calm and refreshing. It is light green color and applies so smooth. You wear for only 15 minutes and application instructions are on the bottom of the container. There is probably enough for two applications if you put the remainder in a small plastic baggie to stay fresh. It gets a little hard in the 15 minutes but not uncomfortable. When I rinsed off the mask my face felt very, very clean but a little dry so I needed to apply a moisturizer.
Thank you all so much for reading. Until next time,
