In April, I saw Face Inc Sheet Masks in stores such as Debenhams and Boots for the first time.
Face Inc is a new skincare range by the well known company Nails Inc, which is the UK’s number one nail brand.
I picked up three of the four masks from Face Inc to try, buying all but the anti-ageing mask.
So here’s my thoughts on each.
The first mask that I tried out was Cat Nap.
Cat Nap is described as a brightening sheet mask that makes you look rested and is also meant to provide intense moisture whilst having a calming effect on skin.
I found that all three of the Face Inc masks were very saturated in serum, which made them a bit difficult to unfold. The fit of Cat Nap was a little off, as it came up a bit short at the top of my face, but it wasn’t terrible.
I had no reaction to this mask whilst wearing it or after.
So did it work? I first tried this mask when I was away on a UK break and was impressed, so I purchased two more the next day. However, now I’ve used all three Cat Nap masks, I’m less impressed.
This mask didn’t brighten my skin at all, but it did help get rid of dry patches. The main downside to this mask is that it’s only a temporary fix, as my skin only stayed hydrated for a couple of days. This is good if you need a quick fix for dry skin, but I wouldn’t repurchase.
The second mask that I tried was the Instant Detox.
This mask is described as being able to reverse and re-balance the effects of overindulgence, hydrate, calm and detox skin.
The fit of Instant Detox wasn’t great as the sheer amount of serum weighed the mask down, meaning it didn’t stay on well around the lower part of my face.
I had no reaction whilst wearing this mask.
Did it work? In a word, no! This was my least favourite mask out of the three as the serum kept dripping into my eyes and down my neck when I was using this, making it uncomfortable to wear.
I noticed no brightening and no detoxifying effects, but ironically for a detox mask, I suffered a breakout the day after using this. I definitely wouldn’t repurchase.
The third and final mask that I tried was the Flower Power one.
Flower Power is described as a hydrating sheet mask for dry and dehydrated skin and also contains lavender as an anti-inflammatory to calm skin.
The fit of this mask was the best of the three and the design of Flower Power was also my favourite.
I had no reaction whilst wearing this mask or after.
Did it work? Kind of. For a mask that’s supposed to be for dehydrated skin, it wasn’t particularly moisturising. My skin was slightly hydrated and less dry, but this mask didn’t do anything special. I wouldn’t repurchase this.
My overall thoughts? If I could sum up all three masks in one word, it would be disappointing. Each mask barely had any noticeable positive effects, if any. I’d advise Nails Inc to stick to what they know, rather than branching too much into skincare with their Face Inc line.
Have you tried any Face Inc masks?
