Review: Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Rosewater Mask
Here’s a face mask that I’ve had for some time. It’s from Andalou Naturals. I was pretty much on a roll with this brand. Thought I’d try out the face mask too. haha. So this is a revitalizing mask. It contains alpine rose stem cells. Delivers hydration and dermal vitality to soothe and nourish sensitive skin. It also contains pomegranate to uplift the tone. Hyaluronic acid and aloe vera to help revive the skin’s moisture barrier for a flawless complexion. If you have read my reviews on Andalou Naturals, the benefits of this product may sounds sooo familiar. In fact, it does. The face mask is a part of the rosewater collection.

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Pearl Exfoliator
This face mask is very soft and pale pink. It has a creamy, soufflé texture and consistency to it. When applied to the skin, it feels so soft and smooth. It feels like it melts into the skin. The instructions says to leave the face mask on for 10-20 minutes. I left it on for the whole 20 minutes. I need to get that hydration into my skin. Whenever I use a moisturizing face mask, I make sure I get as much moisture out of it and into my skin, lol. So this face mask was very attractive to me because I do indeed love rosewater-based skin care products. Ahem, look at all of the rosewater-based skin care products I tried out from Andalou Naturals! Don’t forget to check them out! Now let’s take a look at the ingredients in this face mask!
It first starts off with aloe barbadensis leaf juice, purified water, rose flower distillate. Next, it goes on to a bunch of ingredients, such as rosehip fruit oil, pomegranate seed oil, plant stem cells (alpine rose, malus domestica, solar vitis), bioactive berry complexion, cranberry fruit juice, panthenol, and so on. The ingredients look very similar to the other rosewater-based skin care products from Andalou Naturals. I’m not shocked. It’s in the same line of products.
But how did this face mask go? Did it work??
Unfortunately, it didn’t do much for my skin. It feels nice and lovely when applied to the skin and while it’s on the skin, except for the fact that sometimes it burned my skin. My skin isn’t even the sensitive type. Isn’t this face mask made for sensitive skin? if you have sensitive skin (or any other skin type), do a patch test first. But once the face mask is rinsed off, I didn’t see any changes in my skin. My skin didn’t look or feel more hydrated or moisturized. It felt like a waste of time using this product. Absolutely no difference. Maybe I’m just better off using a clay mask instead. I always see some effect on my skin when I use those. It helps to remove excess sebum. Or maybe I’m just better off using a good moisturizer or serum that actually hydrates my skin. This mask is just not for my skin type. It didn’t do anything.
This is what the face mask looks like. It looks very pretty. Love the pale pink color. The softness and creaminess of the product is so nice. I loved the texture and consistency of the mask. I just wished it moisturized my skin like it’s supposed to. *sigh*
Pros & Cons
- Nice texture. Feels soft and creamy.
- Doesn’t leave the skin feeling moisturized.
- Sometimes burns the face.
- Doesn’t rinse off clean.
One more Andalou Naturals skin care product that didn’t work. Not only that, it burned my face sometimes when I was using it. It didn’t leave my skin feeling moisturized either. The only good points about this face mask is the light, airy, creamy texture that the mask has. As for results, none. This isn’t a face mask I would ever purchase again. I can’t recommend it to anyone. Let alone someone with sensitive skin. I mean, it burns.
Review: I’m From Mugwort Mask
I’m on to a new face mask! I have I’m From Mugwort Mask! This face mask is enriched with mugwort and botanical extracts to refine the skin. Mugwort extract helps to cool down heated skin and gives relief to irritated skin. It purifies the skin, combats environmental stressors, and stimulates collagen production. It helps to delay the signs of aging and plump up the skin for a more youthful complexion. This face mask is cruelty-free. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colors, paraben-free, sulfate-free, alcohol-free, mineral-oil free, no essential oils and silicone. That’s awesome! I hope it lives up to its claims. Did it? Well, let’s find out! Here’s my experience with I’m From Mugwort Mask!
This face mask is a soft gel. It has pieces of mugwort within the mask (see photo below). Tiny little pieces here, larger chunks there. They’re not abrasive or harmful to the skin. Very gentle and doesn’t provide much exfoliation. Well, I haven’t noticed any exfoliating effects. They’re just in the mask. So this face mask has a strong earthy herb smell to it. It’s not my favorite smell in the world, but it’s not too bad. I got used to it after a couple of uses. I can deal with it. The product glides over the skin nicely and smoothly. It sticks to the skin well. It doesn’t drip from the face, so it’s not runny. I can get some chores done with this mask on without it making a mess. The mask feels gentle and soothing on the skin while deeply moisturizing the skin at the same time. That’s perfect!
So the suggested time to leave the mask on is 10-15 minutes. Since my skin needed a ton of moisture (as much as I can get), I left it on for the whole 15 minutes. The mask felt soothing and moisturizing when I had it on, but it also left my skin feeling softer, smoother, and really moisturized when I removed it. It rinsed off clean without leaving any sticky residue behind. I’m really impressed. This mask is very nourishing and moisturizing. The quality of the product is very good. Much better than what I’ve experienced with other moisturizing masks. This mask actually does leave my skin feeling hydrated. Exactly what I wanted and expected from a moisturizing face mask! I can’t tell if it has helped with signs of aging or plumping up the skin, but it does a wonderful job at moisturizing the skin without irritating it. That could help with signs of aging with long term use.
This is what the face mask looks like. It’s brown with pieces of mugwort.
Pros & Cons
- Truly moisturizes the skin
- Feels gentle and soft on the skin, smoothing gel texture
- Rinses clean
- Smells like herbs. Some people may enjoy the smell, but I didn’t really like it.
- Expensive for a face mask. For the full-size product, it’s around $35 for a 3.88 fl. oz. (110 g) jar. I have the mini size to try out.
I’m From Mugwort Mask is a very moisturizing mask. It works to hydrate and moisturize the skin. Great for dry skin days. But I don’t have dry skin that often unless it’s from something else I’m using like acne treatments. Also, it’s pretty spendy for a face mask that only temporarily moisturizes the skin. I would much prefer use a facial moisturizer that’ll provide moisture to the skin throughout the day than a face mask. The reason why I don’t use face masks that often. They only provide temporary relief. It doesn’t fix the problem. So! In saying that, I think it’s a good moisturizing mask if you have dry skin, but I don’t feel the need to purchase the full-size product. It was nice to try out.
