REVIEW: Watsons Camellia Callus Cell Vitamin F Facial Mask

Let your friends know

It was a whole day of pampering for me last weekend. I spent the whole day at the salon giving my hair and nails much love. But I didn’t stop there. When I got home, before finally turning in, I tried Watsons Camellia Callus Cell Vitamin F Facial Mask. It was something I bought during one of my kikay moods and at last got around to trying.

Impressions

Of the masks I’ve tried, I like this product best, which kind of surprised me since it’s cheaper than most of its counter parts. If you’re on a budget or just beginning to learn about facial masks, this brand would probably be your best bet.

Scent

From the moment I opened the package, I smelled flowers and was already hooked. It was a wonderful scent and immediately made me relax when I finally put the mask on. I dreaded the end of the 20 minutes when I had to remove the mask. I just can’t get enough of the flowers!

Application

If the scent was relaxing, the application was perplexing, unfortunately. As with Dermal’s Collagen Mask I tried previously, unfolding the mask was quite a challenge. I’ve tried a few masks between Dermal’s and the current one, but never got the hang of unfolding the masks. I hope they can invent a better way for this.

So as with this one, I was deathly afraid of tearing it accidentally at the edges. Thankfully, it survived. The sad part, though, was that a lot of the essence transferred to my hands, which I could not massage into my face at the time.

After surmounting this challenge, it was easy. Just position it first around the eyes, and you can easily smooth it outwards from there. Make sure to push out any bubbles.

What to expect

Expect a forehead gap!

Expect a cooling sensation where the essence has been applied. This was quite relaxing in my opinion and which is good, especially for those with visible pores.

If you have a wide forehead, like me, expect about an inch of forehead exposure. I’ve had this problem with past masks so it was already something that I expected. It was still disappointing though.

If you use this before bed time, expect soft skin the next day. I just loved this! My skin didn’t even feel the least bit itchy with this product. A good sign! So, that’s a check on the claims department.

Verdict: 9/10

As I said, this one has become my favorite so far. You will fall in love with the scent of flowers, relax under the cool mask, and wake up with soft, supple skin the next day. Who wouldn’t want that?

Will I buy this again? Without a doubt. The price is also easy on the wallet and so it won’t feel like you’re splurging if you ever want to stick to the 2-3 times a week regimen.
