Fab First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Purifying Mask


RATING (out of 5 stars): 3 stars

COST: $30

THE SKINNY: There's something about a peel-off mask that I just like. Whether it works or not, peeling the layer from my skin just feels cleansing.

Fab First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Purifying Mask has the feeling for sure. It goes on with a minty tingle and peels flawlessly. I am not sure if my skin actually looked better afterward or if it was all in my head though.

One real warning about this product -- the mast is bright red. Like nail polish or lipstick. I was pretty shocked when I ripped open the packet to find that color. (The mask is made with red clay, hence the hue.)

And it takes every bit of 20 minutes to dry. So you will need some time to hide your red-faced self from the world while it does its thing.

This mask is designed for skin like mine which has a few "problem areas." According to the label, "it regulates excess sebum, and eliminates clogged pores. In addition, mineral rich red clay reduces congestive pigmentation in problem areas where pimples previously formed and improves the skin’s texture."

But for me, it was worth it. I just love the super clean feeling a peel-off mask provides.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep.

CHECK IT OUT: Even at $30, I will likely be looking for this product at Sephora soon.
