Review: Banila co Miss Flowers & Mr. Honey Hydrogel Mask

Banila co Miss Flowers & Mr. Honey Hydrogel Mask

This mask is much hyped and I get caught up ini hype like anyone else. I had to try this mask. I even tried it more than once because I wanted to enjoy it...  I also tried the Oil, and the cream... and despite my feelings so far I'm going to try that toner some day too I'm sure.

I mean just look at that packaging!

And the back even shows you how to open up the mask before putting it on. It's got to be impossible to fail right?

Well the ingredients are not in English but COSDNA came through for me.

This mask for all the love has a bunch of red flags man! Carrageenan is a levek 5 acne trigger and a level 2 irritant. Castor Oil, Butylene Glycol, Calendula, and Chamomile all pop up as love level irritants. Avoid this mask if you have sensitivities to those things. Man I never would have considered chamomile as a potential irritant. I always think of it as calming but then again that’s in tea which is consumed orally not topically.
Among the beneficial ingredients we have Niacinamide, Propolis, and Royal Jelly. Propolis and Royal Jelly are so far down the list though that I’m not sure they do much here.

How did it go?

It has a pretty gold sheen and no strong scent. a two piece hydro gel mask. I've found many winners in this type of mask. Perhaps I have set my standards too high but I did not love this mask. The backing is a mesh that gets itchy as the mask dries down. Not for me man.
I showed off my issues on Instagram but in case you don't follow me there I can show you again! Can you believe I used to be camera shy?

 So this mask was not a winner for me. It slipped, slid, and got itchy. Bonus points for the lightening ingredients but I get plenty of that from other products man!
Would I buy it again? 
No. I really really wouldn't. 

Final Score?

2/5 on the scale. I don't like it. Sorry. 

1- I want both my money and the time I spent using this product back. It should never be used and if I encounter another in my collection it goes to the trash bin.
2- The product is nothing special but not horrible. I would use it again or give it away if I got it as a free sample.
3-The product is nice enough but I would not repurchase because I have many better options. May be better suited for others
4-I really like this and would likely repurchase if I do not find something better.
5-I love this product and it has become a staple in my collection.
So now you know what the numbers me

I probably use Instagram the most also CanIPutItOnMyFace… that’s funny to me because I had to be convinced to even download the application and then spend three years not using it. What can I say? I’ve turned into a sheet mask exhibitionist…
