A couple weeks ago I did my very first “Face Mask Face Off” and compared two of my favorite charcoal masks, The Body Shop’s Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask vs GlamGlow SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment, and everyone seemed to like that one so much that I decided to do another! So today’s Face Mask Face Off will be about another favorite mask type of mine, the rose mask!
Rose masks are super hydrating and can be used to give our skins tons of moisture while helping to balance out redness and reduce the look of your pores. Most rose masks smell amazing because they actually contain both rose petals and rose water. Confession- I used to hate the smell of roses (they reminded me of funerals) but now I love the fragrance!
First things first…packaging and price because you only get one first impression. My eyes are immediately drawn to the fresh Rose Face Mask container because it is light and bright. fresh‘s Rose Face Mask comes in a plastic jar while The Body Shop’s British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask comes in a glass jar. Now, I only have the sample size jar of the fresh mask but I happen to know that the full size also only comes in plastic. So, while I like the glass jar from The Body Shop the packaging of fresh wins this one. Price wise fresh‘s Rose Face Mask clocks in at $62 for 3.3oz while The Body Shop’s British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask is $28 for 3oz.
So in this category fresh wins packaging and The Body Shop wins price!
Next up is smell! I don’t know about you but smell is MOST IMPORTANT to me. To me, both of these masks smell the exact same. They both have a really nice rosy smell to them. It’s not overpowering or funeral like at all (HA!) but it’s not super soft either.
So I guess this category is a tie for me!
Next category is texture! Texture is really important to me in a mask. Both of these were a little weird the first time I used them because when I think of a faca mask I think of a clay based mask that gets tight and you know it’s done. These rose masks are more gel based and both have tons of aloe vera in them so they aren’t going to dry up and make your face feel tight. To me, they both have the same texture and wipe off really well when done. They also both have real rose petals in them! BONUS!
So again, this category is tied for me!
Last category, which one worked best?? Honestly other than packaging and price I couldn’t tell a difference?? They both hydrated my skin really well and had an amazing, non-overpowering rose smell to them.
So again, a tie!!
Overall I really love both of these masks. Both masks are super hydrating and soothe my skin. Both have helped me combat facial redness. They are both equal in my eyes except the price. If you love fresh then buy fresh. If you want to save a little money but still get an amazing mask try The Body Shop. So there it is, a TIE!!!!
Have you ever tried a rose mask??
