WORST Pamper Sundays! (#9)
It’s Sunday again, so it’s time for another Pamper Sundays! This time is a little bit different, this was my worst experience with a face mask EVER! Do you wanna know why? Then keep on reading!
This time I tried another one of the DR. Van Der Hoog fun mask range. I’ve always loved this brand for my skincare and face masks, but I’m not so sure anymore!
This is what the mask looks like. It is the Big Fun Bubblegum Moisturizing boost mask from DR. Van Der Hoog. I tried a couple of the fun range, and it all went okay, I’ve never had this big of a reaction. Indeed, “BIG” fun, DR. Van Der Hoog! The packaging looked so happy and pink, I was quite excited to try this one. Not anymore after today!
Here are the ingredients and how to use it. When I look at the ingredients I don’t see anything weird. It’s based on Almond oil and Macadamia oil, it also contain Aloe Vera and melon-extract to calm and hydrate the skin. You need to wash your face first and then you apply a thick layer on the skin. Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. Then massage it in to the skin and wash it off.
Here is what it looked like on my skin. I was kinda disappointed that it wasn’t bright pink, I’m sure that it looked bright pink on the image of the packaging, right? Another thing is that it doesn’t really smell like bubblegum, It’s more an apple kind of smell. I also let my boyfriend sniff my face and he didn’t recognize bubblegum either. When I had the mask on my face It kinda started to burn, not super bad, but it did burn when I moved my face. Most face masks burn because of my sensitive skin, so I didn’t think anything at that point. After 15 minutes I wanted to take it off because it was burning even more, and was not really that relaxing, what a face mask supposed to be in my opinion.
I did massage it in to the skin, because that was what the packaging said. It only burned worse! After taking it off with water, I was still left with the mask on my face. No, not the product itself, my face was bright red in the shape of the face mask! My face really hurt a lot! It felt like I had a massive sun burn. My skin felt tight and warm, and burny. It was really much the same feeling as a sunburn. I think that this mask really burned me!
Here is what my skin looked like after the mask:
Like O MY! Do you see how glow in the dark red my face is? You can really see where the mask was on my face. I always have a little bit of redness after a face mask, but not this bad! It made me a little bit scared. My skin felt really hot, so I applied some cold water to my face to cool it off a bit. After that I used my Biodermal moisturizer to calm my skin down. It’s still red right now and it still hurts a little. The only plus, weirdly enough, is that my skin does feel soft and moisturized. Crazy crazy face mask! So if you have sensitive skin, don’t use this mask!
