The monthly information card outlines each mask from the box! There is a little description so you know what mask is best to use when and instructions on how to use as well. I have always found this to be super helpful!
Dewytree Hyaluron Melting-Chou Mask – Value $2.50 (Listed Value $4.00)
The monthly card notes that there is such an abundant amount of product in this package that you should rub the remaining serum on the face, neck, arms, and body. I decided to share this mask with my Mom since I received the seven box this month, and she called me the next morning once she woke up to tell me how amazing the results were! She said that the serum was super thick as noted, it had a light cooling effect, and had a really mild smell to it. When she woke up in the morning after sleeping with the serum on, she said that she had a wet glow to her skin and under her eyes looked hydrated and fuller. The hyaluron in the mask helps to provide a ton of moisture while the niacinamide protects and strengthens the skin barrier. This mask is a wonderful solution when you need that extra pack of moisture for your face quickly.
Polatam Brightening Water Gel Extra Force Mask – Value $3.99 (buy a pack of 6 for $23.95. Listed Value $5.50)
My husband recently shaved his very full beard so I thought this would be perfect for him to try since it is meant to calm and energize the skin. The gel-like serum is packed with 100% oak tree sap which has minerals that aid in nourishing and brightening the skin. Other active ingredients are noted to help fight acne scars, boost collagen production levels, and provide your skin with antioxidants. My husband’s first reaction was that the mask itself smelled too perfume-like, but that went away once it was off so the serum itself wasn’t too overpowering. He had a mild cooling feeling while wearing the mask, but once he removed and rubbed everything in he was very red. He doesn’t tend to get irritated, but it looked like he had a mild windburn. Luckily the redness went away quickly and didn’t dry him out so he was left with very soft and oily skin! This was a great refresh for his face!
Entia Vitamin B After Work Soothing Mask – Value $3.00 (Listed Value $3.50)
I used this mask after a particularly difficult week at work since the card notes that this is the perfect mask to use to calm and restore your skin. Vitamin B works to calm troubled skin and provide an overall care for even the most sensitive skin types. I already have very dry skin, but when I am tired or worn down I notice that my skin suffers. This mask was just what I needed since the main ingredients really work to bring that moisture back. I used this in the evening which was great because the serum was very thick and somewhat sticky. I didn’t feel anything out of the ordinary when I had the mask on, but when I took it off my skin felt so cold almost like a light burn. I had some mild redness, but what I noticed most was how full my skin looked. I could really see the serum giving my skin back the moisture that it was craving!
Lyajin Brightening Mi Mask – Listed Value $4.00
This mask is all about brightening as it contains astaxanthin which is 6,000 times stronger than Vitamin C. Gigawhite, another ingredient, is from the Alps which helps to brighten in an even tone. I love what Vitamin C does for my skin so I was very excited to see if this mask really could give me better results then what I see from masks with Vitamin C. The results were a miracle. I used this mask in the morning before applying my makeup and the overall tone of my skin did look more even making my foundation go on so much easier. I didn’t experience any redness, just an overall bright glow that lasted throughout the day.
A.by Bom Super Power Baby Doll 3 Step Ultra Moisture Mask – Listed Value $4.50
This mask is 3 steps starting with the eye serum, which is packed with aloe vera and green tea extract to improve elasticity around the eyes. The second step is the soothing cream for moisture and vitality. One thing to note is that I really found this cream to be a bit too florally when applying, it was almost overpowering for a lotion. The final step is to apply the mask which contains ceramides to help retain moisture and keep the skin plump. I loved that this was a three-step process because you almost feel like you are getting a full facial experience at home. I used this mask in the morning, but I would recommend using it at night before bed to let everything really drink into your skin. Since you are putting so much on your face you are left with an extremely dewy look that really glows, but everything combined together was a bit sticky. My skin was so bright and full after removing and rubbing everything in, so much so that I didn’t even feel the need to wear makeup that day. This mask was seriously a miracle worker to provide a bright and moisturized look!
Skin deCeleb ICU Cool Down Rubber Mask – Listed Value $8.50
The packet for this mask can be a bit intimidating especially with ICU being in the name, which is still sort of unclear as to why it is called that. Inside the packet though you will find the most delicate pink rubber mask that goes onto your skin really well! The card notes that this mask is great to sooth all skin types and can relieve irritated skin since it contains mulberry and tee treat extract. I used this mask when I had some irritation on my chin in hopes that it would clear it up a bit. I was in luck because this mask worked wonders! I used it in the morning and noticed the redness on my breakouts were gone and I was left with extreme moisture in all of those dry areas. I loved receiving a mask that was more to help your skin if you experience breakouts because that for me is something I am always looking for a quick fix on.
Wangskin White Flower Mask Pack – Value $2.99 (Listed Value $3.00)
This mask had a very strong white floral smell that was a bit too much for me. The ingredients include lily extract which helps sensitive skin, snow flower extract to purify, edelweiss to calm, and chamomile which helps skin to look moisturized. Once I got past the overall floral smell, I did find that this mask was incredibly soothing. I felt relaxed with the overall cooling feeling the mask provides. Once I took the mask off I could see a healthy glow and brightness. I slept with the serum on and woke looking refreshed with that subtle glow that you see after extreme hydration!
Verdict: Facetory is such a wonderful box that is bringing quality sheet masks right to your home! Since I received seven, I was able to use most of them and share the others with my Mom and husband. The overall value comes in at $29.48 – well above the monthly cost of $19.90, which is a great value! I noticed that a lot of these masks you have to buy in bulk if you want to order online which, for me, is risky because I am never too sure if something will work well with my skin. Plus, you don’t get a variety of masks that way. Facetory really does a great job in providing an overall theme each month while still offering a variety of masks for all skin types. With the seven box, you can share with friends like I did, or use them all to ensure you keep that healthy glow week to week!
