Did you konw that Aveeno has some peel off face masks? They have two and I received the Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Pre-Tox Peel Off Mask free from ChickAdvisor. Let’s see how it worked out for me.
Renew and exfoliate skin in one simple step with Aveeno® Absolutely Ageless® Pre-tox Peel Off Mask. This antioxidant-infused facial mask acts as a soap-free, no-rinse face exfoliator, helping to lift away impurities to reveal fresh, healthy-looking skin.

The mask kind of has a floral scent, but it’s very perfumey. I don’t find it overwhelming, but it could be a bit too much for people with scent sensitivities.
The directions say to “apply a generous, even layer”, but I’m not quite sure how generous I’m supposed to be. It felt like I kept on applying more and more and it wasn’t really getting any thicker. I also felt like the way I was going, the tube would only last me for two masks. I’m sure that there is more than enough left for a few other masks, but it just felt like I used a lot and it did not look like it on my face.
I kept the mask on between 20 and 30 minutes (I didn’t really look at the time). I basically waited for it to dry (it gets darker and a bit translucid when it dries). Then I started peeling it off, but it took a few minutes before I could find a place where the mask would lift. I found the peeling very unpleasant in the lower cheek area, but on the forehead and on the nose it actually felt good. The mask also removed some blackheads on my cheeks and nose which I was really happy about. It also came off in one bit piece leaving only just a few bits here and there on the outer ends of where the mask was. My face felt really soft after removing the mask.
My face got red after peeling off the mask, but I have dermatographia which means that any kind of skin irritation makes my skin red and break into hives. So I knew that a peel-off mask would trigger my dermatographia. Because of that, I cannot say if the redness would be standard for everybody or not. I imagine that if you have sensitive skin you make get red as well, but that is just a guess.
Overall I did enjoy this mask, even if it was a bit unpleasant to peel off on certain places of my face. And the redness was to be expected, but it didn’t last long and didn’t itch (dermatographia usually makes things itch). So I will do it again.
Have you tried this one?
