Mask Monday: Forever 21 Pearl Mask Sheet

The last Baroness paper mask I have to share with you is the Pearl Mask Sheet…

I picked this paper mask up at Forever 21 along with the tomato mask and the snail masks. All three are from Korea and the brand is Baroness.

Like the two before, the pearl mask had no odor. That’s nice since I kick back and leave it on my face for 20 minutes. This mask felt cool on my skin. After my 20 minutes were up, I removed the mask and rubbed in the remaining residue. It was soft and creamy and left my skin feeling smooth. I didn’t feel the need to add any other skin product on my face after using this mask. However, right before bedtime, I did use my Kiehl’s Midnight Repair Concentrate.

In my opinion, for $1, I got a very nice experience and feel my skin benefited from using these masks. Forever 21 has a huge turn over of their inventory. I haven’t seen these again since I purchased them. I have, however, picked up a foot mask that I will be reviewing. I have learned that when I see something like this, and the financial investment is small, I need to go ahead and stock up. I wish I would have with these Baroness paper masks.

One thing that I did notice with the ingredient list on all of the Baroness masks; the headlining ingredient, as the pearl is with this mask, is practically insignificant. As you can see here, the Pearl Powder is the last ingredient and only .01% at that…

Actually, I purchased these on a whim rather than buying them for the healing or anti-aging or any other reason of the purported title. It was a pleasant experience and a lesson that just because a product says that it is a ‘pearl’ mask doesn’t mean that it has a lot of that ingredient in it.

No scary photo of me wearing the pearl paper mask, this time. It looked just like the other two. And also, I forgot to snap a photo. Regardless, I would recommend these masks because it gave me a reason to lie down and just be for 20 minutes. No cell phone, no TV, just me and my own thoughts. The masks are a tool, if you will, to mentally check in with myself. Even though I usually post this series on Monday, I actually use the masks on Sunday evening. It’s a ritual that I enjoy to end my weekend and begin to move towards the start of a new week. And hopefully, my skin gets a little joy out of it as well.

Have you ever used any beauty product that has pearl powder in it?

  • Well, it’s a shame that the main ingredient is actually only there in very small concentrations… But nonetheless it sounds like a nice enough mask.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I would have been more disappointed if the main reason I purchased this mask would have been for the pearl powder. But, for a buck, I knew it wasn’t going to be much.

  • I love sheet masks! I probably have enough to last me a year 🙂 They are really great for providing an instant boost of moisture.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I have a drawer in my bathroom full of mask products. Doing the reviews have helped me get through them.

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    Next trip to the mall, I’ll check out the offerings at F21. All of the Baroness masks you tried sounded great. It’ll be fun to try whatever they have in stock.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I found a foot mask last time and am looking forward to giving it a try.

  • Love Mask Monday! Definitely need to go to F21 soon!!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I always look forward to my next visit to see what I will discover.

  • Cindy Ingalls

    I’m a big fan of Korean beauty, especially their face masks. Will have to look for these masks next time I am near a Forever 21.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I hope you find something you enjoy. And, I hope you review it too because I’d love to hear what your experience is like.

  • This sounds lovely. I don’t bother with gemstones in skin care. They can’t really “do” anything for the skin so what is the point? lol

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I agree. Their molecular structure is too big to get past the skin to do anything. But, whatever else they have in this mask, it sure made my skin soft for about 12 hours. (Until the next morning)

  • BeautyJudy

    For $1 – you can’t beat trying this out. I need to pop into F21. I haven’t been in forever but you never know what gems you’re going to find in there like this!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I am itchin’ to go again. I do have to go to the mall and get my brows done so I have an excuse to pop in at F21.

  • I’ll have to keep an eye out in F21 for stuff like this in future!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      They usually have them up in the cubes at the check out lines. That and a million other things to look at too.

  • Aleya Bamdad

    I’ve heard about this mask. I’ll have to stop by and pick one up.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      What’s a buck, right? I think you’ll enjoy the experience of trying it.

  • I like the sound of this mask! Great price too.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Yep, that price makes it easy.

    I haven’t actually tried anything with pearl powder in it. I’m amused that for such a small quantity, they thought it’d still be worth it to call it a Pearl Sheet Mask

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I am too. I should check with the FDA guidelines about that. I know with my own business, they can be very strict about such claims. But, I guess as long as it is in the product in some way, that’s how they get by with it.

  • marciaf

    I guess the appeal to the concealer is the word “pearl” but if you felt and looked better that’s what counts.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I have learned with the Baroness masks they sure don’t have but a trace of the proclaimed product.

  • I’ve never used anything with pearl powder but I’m a sucker for any sheet mask! They never break me out while regular face packs do.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I bet you’d like this one very much.

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    I haven’t heard of masks with pearl powder! Sounds nifty!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I bet the others had more pearl powder than this one.

  • Justina

    I love the sheet mask things, and even if they don’t really have beneficial stuff, they just feel so darn good.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I get a one-use enjoyment out of it and my skin is so soft the next day. I just don’t have the time to use one every, single day.

  • I think sheet masks are so fun, though they can sometimes be a pain for me to put on. This one sounds interesting.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      They can be a bit fumbly to put on, I agree. I try to smooth it over the main areas as best I can. I try not to touch my face once I lay down but I’m fidgety and want to make sure the mask it touching all skin.

  • I’ve never heard of a pearl mask before. I wonder what it’s supposed to do – add radiance, maybe? Like you, I enjoy them for their cooling and smoothing effects. I think most of them are pretty good at hydrating, especially oily skin like mine.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I have heard of pearl powder using in actual powder products. I need to remember to use a facial mask when I have a headache as the cooling effect would feel very nice.

  • FabZilla_Kath

    I love masks, all kinds. Yes, they give me legit reason not to do anything but indulge

    • Kimberly Purcell

      You hit the nail right on the head. As long as it doesn’t hurt my skin in any way, it’s a go.

  • Sounds like a nice mask, but I hate when the headlining ingredient is the last one in the ingredients list :S

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I don’t like to be misled like that either.

  • I didn’t know Forever21 carried these! Good to know!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I look for goodies like this every time I go there.

  • I’m a huge fan of masks – I wish it was a viable option to use them every morning and night ahah!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I’m with you on that. Too bad they don’t put that product in a pump jar where I could just do a quick run through with it.

  • You’re the queen of the awesome $1 masks lol

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I found a couple more for $3 at Urban Outfitters yesterday. I have more to share.

  • Another winner !

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I looked for more yesterday and they didn’t have any. I’m bummed.

  • I really really really love sheet masks and I love finding really inexpensive ones too! Great review.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I like these from Baroness very much. I would buy more if I could find more.
