Face Q Grape Seed & Green Tea Mask Review

Face Q makes a whimiscal collection of facial sheet masks along the same vein as My Beauty Diary. Cute packaging aside their masks are generally good but they suffer from one major downfall.

Let’s take a look at the Grape Seed & Green Tea formulation and learn more about the quirk that keeps it from being perfect!

Face Q Grape Seed + Green Tea Mask are one of many different Asian style sheet mask that can be found in various Asian countries, this brand happens to be Taiwanese. If you’ve never used a sheet mask they are simply a mask with eye, nose, and mouth cut outs that you apply to your face and leave on for 15-30 minutes. Each mask is saturated with essence which contains a variety of ingredients that are formulated with anti-aging benefits, whitening ones, brightening, etc…depending on which mask you purchase!

Face Q Grape Seed + Green Tea Mask is formulated with grape seeds which contain powerful proanthocyanidins antioxidant that can prevent the skin from oxidation damage causing dull skin and loss of elasticity. Grape Seed Oil also supposedly prevent fine lines and skin spots.

I normally go for brightening, whitening, or moisturizing formulas since I have drier, duller skin but I definitely need to start concentrating on aging as well which is why I indulged in this line.

The mask didn’t make my skin tight or sticky after use, it was however left feeling smoother and more supple however I can’t say how preventive this is as only time will tell if it’s working!

Face Q generally makes very nice masks however the main problem is the fact they are thin so they rip super duper easily. After application on my face, gentle packing into place caused a major tear by the nose and eye cuts. Kinda disappointing.

Overall, Face Q is an inexpensive facial sheet mask in a range of formulations that produce decent results however the tearing is an issue I can’t forgive.

Anyone try Face Q?

Love ’em?

Not so much?

      nope, every single face q mask I’ve tried tears unfortunately. I’ve done about…6 reviews in the series so far and all have torn on me 🙁

    The sight of those masks — all unfolded and opened up — never fail to make me grin. They look so goofy. 🙂
    I’m not knocking face masks — they simply make me smile 🙂
