Tried It: Farmacy Beauty Hydrating Coconut Gel Mask

Have you seen the latest skin care trend? You know, the mask? I've noticed a lot of women on Instagram daring to show us their masked faces. Curiosity got the best of me and I thought I would request a press sample to see what all the hype was about.

The kind guys at Farmacy sent me a Farmacy Beauty Hydrating Coconut Gel Mask and I was ready to see how this mask would help my delicate skin.

Real Talk

The mask itself was very slimy as I laid it on my face, which was to be expected I guess. It was a little cumbersome trying to fit it on. I couldn't keep a straight face. I felt like I looked like some masked wrestler! I laughed so hard as my son tried to take pictures of me. My husband retreated to his man cave. Ah, the things we do to be beautiful! 

I only kept the mask on for a little over 10 minutes since my skin is so sensitive. After I took the mask off,  I gently rubbed the residue into my skin as directed. My face felt very dewy and moist, but I eventually rinsed it off as my skin started to feel a little irritated

Honestly, I'm on the fence with this one. I personally would only use this every once in a while because the mask just looks and feels awkward to me. My skin did feel very moisturized. I'd almost like it better if this were a product I could apply directly to my face.

  1. I haven't jumped on the mask bandwagon and from your review I'm glad I didn't. #ProductReviewParty

    1. I know what you mean. It's fun to try new things, though.

  2. I love doing a full mask facials every few months because love how it feels once my pores are open. However, like you said, I don't want it to be a chore - it should be easy breezy and relaxing.

    1. I just had a lot of trouble keeping it from sliding off my face!

  3. I loved your review on this product. It does look a bit cumbersome! But that is great it did in deed moisturize well!

  4. I would like to try this considering my skin is also sensitive and its hard for me not to have a reaction to masks.

    1. Having sensitive skin is hard. You always have to be cautious about products.

  5. This must be the latest in cool. I am used to the old school mud mask, and when I am extra fancy I use a mud mask with dead sea salt. I would love to try it out #productreviewparty

    1. I keep seeing folks displaying this type of mask on Instagram. It made me look crazy!
