I came across the rather cute indivdual Banila Co Tea Party Tea Capsule Mask Packs recently on Sasa and decided to purchase a few. They are awfully priced at $2.90 each! Considering boxed facial sheet masks are $8-$10 for 10 or more masks I find it cringe worthy that a small cream/liquid facial mask are near $3 each!
But they were cute and they had Tea Party in the name and and I’m a skincare junkie!
How could I resist?
Banila Co Tea Party Tea Capsule Mask Pack come in a variety of formulas so I hauled a few different versions. There’s a Brightening Milk Tea one, a Relaxing & Soothing Lemon Balm one, an Apple Mint Sebum Control one, etc…etc..so whatever your issue there’s a mask for it.
Each mask comes in a k-cup style container which has a lift up sticker label. You simply massage the mask on, leave for 20-30 minutes, and rinse away with cool water.
I was surprised at first how little of the mask was in the container but it is actually just enough to cover your entire face. Some of the masks are creams where as others are gels and all of them have pleasant fragrances. They aren’t sticky but more slippery on my face. They prove a little difficult to rinse off on their own so a wet wash cloth makes for easier removal. They don’t leave my skin tight or dry after use and if anything they provide a little moisture.
I’ve actually run through all of the masks I purchased in the last two months and I have to say none of them did much of anything outside of hydrate my skin a little bit. The brightening one really didn’t brighten, the oil control one def didn’t mattify, etc…etc…
They just proved over priced and expensive.
Cute yes, but avoid these masks and haul yourself a good box of facial sheet masks instead.
If you do want to try them Sasa.com carries a host of formulas.
