Review: Balea Reviving Face Mask with Red Wine Extract & Vitamin C

This week I tried the Balea Reviving Face Mask with Red Wine Extract & Vitamin C. Keep reading to see how this mask worked for me. 
 
Hypoallergenic. Dermatologist tested. Indulge in this antioxidant face mask containing wine extract and vitamin C to help revive your skin. Look and feel your best by bringing back the natural glow to your skin’s appearance!

This mask is orange in colour, with a jelly like consistency. Once applied to the face, you could barely see it on my face. This mask smelt like a fruity wine, in fact it smelt like the White Zinfandel that I was drinking at the time of application. I really liked that the scent didn’t linger during the day. There is nothing I hate worse then skincare scents that linger strongly on my face. 

I used a brush to apply and it went on smoothly. There is enough product in one of these packages for 2+ masks, so after applying I put the package into a zip lock bag and stored it in the fridge so it wouldn’t dry out. 

When I first applied this mask it felt cool, and continued to feel cool throughout the whole time it was on my face. Unlike many other Balea face masks this one did not burn or sting my face at all. It was comfortable to wear the whole time, and at one point I even forgot that it was on my face. The packaging stated to leave it on for 10-15 minutes until dry, and then remove. I ended up leaving it on for 25 minutes, and it never completely dried. 

Removal was easy using lukewarm water and a washcloth. My skin felt very clean, soft and hydrated after removal. I toned and moisturized as normal, and my skin looked great. It had a glow to it. It didn’t necessarily look “younger”, just a bit less dull.

Comfort - 5/5 
Aroma - 5/5
Results - 4/5
Ease of Use - 5/5
Total Score = 19/20
You can purchase this mask at Shoppers Drug Mart. This mask retails for $1.99 or 3 for $5.00.
