JolieBox Review - I love... Coconut Face Mask

Excuse the minor exagerations and halloween references...

If you want Halloween in a beauty product then go and pick up this face mask because it frightened both myself and my dad to death!

I don't know if it's because I've never used a peel-off-in-one mask before or what but it is definitely not an experience I will be rushing to try out again any time soon.

I received this product in my JolieBox a month ago and was determined to try it out. However, it got plonked in my draw and I have completely forgotten about it til now. When I rediscovered it last night I immediately put it on to see how it worked.

The directions read that you should apply it onto dry skin, wait for it to dry and then peel it off in one piece. Job done! Sounds simple enough. So I ripped the top of the sachet off with excitement and was a little spooked out by what I found. It was just a clear gloopy mess. I kid you not, it was stringy and messy and everything I try to avoid in a beauty product. I actually didn't know if the product had gone off or something. It was that bizarre. Needless to say I strode on in the name of beauty and applied it generously to my face. It was like applying clear stringy cheese. YACK!

So after I had got this.. stuff on my face I calmed down a little. It just looked like I had a mass of shiny gel on my face. There's nothing to worry about here! So I went and decided to leave it 10-15 minutes to dry and then attempt to take it off. Ten minutes later I looked in the mirror and half my face was hanging off! It looked like I had icicles dangling from my chin. I was a little freaked out to say the least. I also couldn't stop laughing and dangling my face over my dad which he did not appreciate one bit.

After messing about, I went to peel it off and my word it hurt! It was so tight to my face it was literally like peeling off a layer of skin. I now understand why the sachet told you to avoid getting any in your eyebrows - you'd probably end up with none left... (just kidding!)

Eventually I got all of the mask off and looked in the mirror. My skin looked really lovely. I was scared that it would be red and blotchy but it looked clear and amazing. It felt a bit tight but that was nothing that a little moisturiser couldn't solve. My face felt soft and suddenly the Halloween beauty experience was all worth while.

Having said this... I don't think I would rush out and buy it again. It was cool to try out once but not something I would use on a day to day basis.

If you have used this yourself then leave comments below on what you thought. I'm eager to know!
