Mask Monday: Sephora’s Ginseng Mask

If you have every been to a Sephora makeup store, you know how much time you can spend in there. Also, how much money you’ll spend too. It’s not hard to rack up a huge haul with a bill that’s even bigger. So, when I go to Sephora I want to make sure every single one of my purchases give me the best that can be offered.

When I picked up Sephora’s Ginseng Mask for toning & Revitalizing, it had some big shoes to fill…

Kinda cute how the picture of the lady applying that ‘fiber mask’ is doing it oh, so smoothly. Aaand, moving on…

I love the bright yellow packaging the mask came in but, I didn’t like the white lettering for the instructions. You might say, ‘Hey, Kimberly…what? Are you new?’ However, I think it’s important to make the directions clear for everyone. There is always a first time and, I wanted to know exactly how long it was going to take to get revitalized.

This single-use mask cost $6. I have to tell you that right up front because all the other single-use paper masks I have purchased are not even close to that cost. Thus, my expectations were extremely high. I was impressed with the packaging…

I had to take this photo and enlarge it a lot to be able to read the ingredients. It sure as heck didn’t happen when I was at the store. I felt the need for extremely thick readers to see this…

For touting Ginseng as the headliner, I found that it was listed high in the ingredients. And, if you squint really hard, you can see that there are several other natural/herbal type of items in there too.

The package that contained the mask was hard to tear open. I’m OK with that because there’s less chance for the mask to dry up. When I did get it opened, this mask was juicy…

Of course, I was kidding earlier when I mentioned the drawing of the lady applying the mask since these masks never quite mold to my face. Or, anyone else’s for that matter. I don’t fuss about it too much. This one was so juicy that I knew my entire face was going to get some product on it.

Now the good part; kicking back and chillin’ for 15 minutes while the Ginseng mask does its thing. While the product itself was very cooling, there was not any odor at all. Not even a hint of the aloe vera. But, that juiciness was mostly from the aloe and, surelycreating the cooling sensation.

When the fifteen minutes was done, I took a photo of my revitalized self, got a good chuckle and then removed the mask. I rubbed in the remaining juice and enjoyed very soft skin. Do I feel revitalized? Yes, I do. Do I feel toned as well? I would say so as my skin felt slightly plumbed after using this mask.

The entire experience was a very good one. I feel I got my money’s worth, my skin felt great and I enjoyed using Sephora’s Ginseng mask. I would love to use this one again.

Sephora has several different types of single-use facial masks. Have you tried any of them?
