Gift Review: Face Q

In a recent love package from K of cosmeddicted, there was a Face Q mask. I finally got the chance to try it out. The mask that I had received was the Grapeseed + Green Tea mask.


According to Sasa, "Face Q Grape Seed + Green Tea Mask with a unique micro-emulsion technology turns nourishment into micro-emulsion particles that are smaller and easier to penetrate into the skin, improving moisture replenishment. Mask is made from 100% wood pulp with silk, it fit your facial contour perfectly, rapidly infiltrate moisture for the skin, after use your skin with become supple with natural radiance.Formulated with all natural botanical extracts, grape seeds contain powerful proanthocyanidins antioxidant, can prevent the skin from oxidation damage, thus lose luster and flexibility. Grape seed also has synergistic effect with collagen and elastin, making skin a shiny and flexible, and prevent premature wrinkles and skin spots."

The mask shape is quite similar to My Beauty Diary Masks but there are a few slight differences. I think that it's a little smaller than MBD and the hole shapes for the nose and mouth are a little different. The Face Q mask is nicely saturated but not overly saturated like some of the MBD masks that I have tried. I also liked that Face Q masks are thinner and more sheer than MBD masks so your natural skin color shows through more. This makes wearing the mask not as scary as when you wear a MBD mask. The mask was very soothing and cool and I kept the mask on for over half an hour with no problems. I find that sometimes with the MBD masks that my skin will start itching or feeling irritated by the mask but I didn't experience that with the Face Q mask.

When I removed the Face Q mask, there was a significant amount of product left on my skin that needed to be worked in, very much like MBD. I felt that my skin looked significantly brighter and more clarified. Even when I woke up the next morning, it was still looking nicely hydrated and brightened. I really liked this mask and am thinking of ordering more from Sasa. It might take a while though because I'm supposed to be on a "no buy" but more importantly, there's not much that I'm wanting from Sasa right now and will not make the $75.00 minimum for free shipping.

Thanks for your review! Grapeseed and green tea sound like very good ingredients. But I suspect that my skin is a bit allergic grapeseed... :(

@Nic Nic--I hope that you can find it when you go to Hong Kong. I was really impressed by it although I only had one mask so difficult to do an indepth review but this is my initial reaction to using it.

@Jess--Ah too bad that you're sensitive to grapeseed. It's best for you to stay away from this mask.

@Steph--Are you still in Hong Kong? If so, good luck finding it! It's a must try in my opinion.
