It’s been a minute since I’ve done a beauty review so bare with me here. I recently tried this product (I found it at CVS) and was curious about it.
Even though I’m well-aged and delicious like a fine wine, I still get acne. I have a naturally oily face so breakouts are rather common.
Let’s look at the back of the packaging to take a hard look at the ingredients:
Wayment…Did you catch that?
You know…sometimes you gotta do it for the culture, so YOLO.
Now, the packaging was something interesting:
I’m not sure what I was expecting but this wasn’t it. Nevertheless, I put the volcano on my face:
You see, I keeps it real on this blog. I can show myself looking like a hot-ass mess with unkempt hair for the sake of a product review.
Now, this product took a bit longer than usual to dry.
And of course, the dry pic:
No, I wasn’t pouting but I really couldn’t talk or smile. Bear got a kick out of my face because he thought I looked like a zombie, LOL.
After rinsing it all off and moisturizing my face, here is a non-filtered pic in natural light:
Not too shabby!
Alright, now that we’ve met the player and played the game, how did this product score?
- Cheap! I think this cost around $8.
- Putting the mask on was rather easy, though it looked a bit complicated.
- The smell was mild. It didn’t smell like a volcano, LOL.
Of course, with everything good, there is some bad:
- Okay, let’s get the monkey out of the way – unless you’re a bit skewed about putting something that contains volcanic ash on your face, you probably don’t want this.
- I did have a mild breakout a couple days later, but then it disappeared. My skin hasn’t had a breakout since then, so maybe there’s something about that ash.
- It took foreverrrrr to dry. It took my face around 40 minutes to completely dry. That’s something to consider if you don’t have a lot of time on your hands. I’m always busy so I just put the mask on and went about my business.
Overall, I do recommend this but buyer beware. Like I’ve mentioned before, I did have a mild breakout but it only lasted for a day before it cleared up on its own.
