Yes To Coconut Ultra Hydrating Facial Mask ($15.99) is one of several new Yes to Coconut skincare products launching for Spring 2016 at drugstores. I picked up Yes To Coconut Ultra Hydrating Facial Mask about two weeks ago at my local Walgreens as it was simply screaming at me to buy it since I have drier skin.
Let’s take a look!
I’m a sheet mask kinda girl. I use them a lot! Particularly now in the colder weather! I swear I go through a box of My Scheming Shea Butter Sheet Masks within a two week period I use them that often.
I just don’t really like cream masks as I don’t feel they are as effective as sheet masks since I’m washing them off. It feels like all that goodness rubs away with a damp cloths or rinses away with water versus staying on your face you know?
I kinda sorta felt that way with Yes To Coconut Ultra Hydrating Facial Mask!
I’m not going to say this isn’t a nice mask but I wouldn’t say it was the most hydrating mask nor would I say it is the cheapest. I was too impatient to wait on a sale so I paid $15.99 for it at Walgreens. Ouch! I can get a box of My Beauty Diary Sheet Masks for like $10 bucks or I can throw a few dollars more onto that $16 bucks and get something at Sephora. That’s a little much for a a 2 oz cream mask.
Price aside let’s chat formula.
This is a thick, cream mask that you can slather on for 5 to 10 minutes and wipe away with a damp cloth. You can’t rinse this one off sadly as it is very thick so it proves impossible to rinse away with merely water. So dampening a wash cloth and removing is the way to go. I don’t really like the wipe off to remove method myself as I feel like it takes away so much from the mask. I’ve been using this twice a week for two weeks and thus far I haven’t had any issues with break outs or any other sensitivities but it is rare that I break out when trying a new skincare product. My skin is drier and duller with flakiness around my cheeks and nose.
I wouldn’t say this was a cure all. It leaves my skin soft and a bit smoother but I still felt quite dry the next day after use. So it isn’t really a cure all but it does provide a little bit of light moisture. It does have a soft coconut milk fragrance that was very pleasant but deserves mentioning for sensitive types.
I dunno if the ingredients are anything to get to excited about. It’s a Water and Glycerin base with some oils from coconut, avocado, and other fruits.
Yes To Coconut Ultra Hydrating Facial Mask is a nice one for light moisture but I personally prefer a more hydrating sheet mask myself which has more lasting and moisture retaining results. This brings nice light moisture to my skin but considering I have to wipe most of it off not a lot of it remains on my actual face so not sure how much is actually absorbed. If you’re a cream mask kinda girl or guy you might like it but I don’t think it provides enough moisture for those with drier skin.
Yes To Coconut Ultra Hydrating Facial Mask is launching now at drugstores.
