My sister got me four of these Avon Planet Spa japanese sake and rice face mask sachets as well as four other face mask sachets from Avon.
~ Price and availability ~
These face masks are available from Avon for around £6.00 in a 75ml tube. They can also be found on Amazon or ebay.
The sachets are hard to find, but they do sometimes come up on ebay for around £1.00 for 2-3 sachets.
~ In use ~
The sachets that I have are surprisingly easy to tear open.
I was also surprised at how thick the mask is. It is thick and white. My sachet contains 7ml of product, which is just enough to cover my face.
It is a bit more difficult to spread over my face than other face masks I have used because of how thick it is.
It has a lovely floral scent to it, which isn’t too strong or overpowering, but I do notice it the whole time I am wearing the mask.
When it is first applied it looks like icing on my face, but as it dries it starts to look less smooth and actually a bit scaly.
As it dries it starts to feel a little bit tight on my skin.
I find that the mask does not take long to dry on my skin. I have known masks take 30 minutes, but within the first 5 minutes this one is well on the way to drying out.
Even if I feel it is dry I still leave it on my skin for about 15 minutes as it feels wrong to wash it off so soon after applying it.
I find that the mask is fairly easy to rinse off.
It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. I feel that my skin looks clearer and my pores appear reduced after using this mask.
I have been impressed with the results from this face mask. It is one of my favourite masks to use.
~ Conclusion ~
I really like this face mask. It is easy to apply and I find it a lot less messy than other masks I have used.
The scent is really nice and it leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth and I find that my pores appear reduced after using this mask.
I like to use face masks regularly as a treat for my skin and this is probably my second favourite after Montagne Jeunesse’s cucumber peel-off mask, which is excellent.
I would definitely buy this mask again although I have to say I much prefer the idea of the sachets rather than the tube even if they were to work out more expensive.
At the time I purchased, the mask was reduced but the RRP is around 6GBP so I thought even if I don''t like it, I''m not losing out on too much. For your money, you get a ml tube of the mask. I purchased this last summer but I noticed that it is still available in the sale section which came around at work recently. It is exclusive to Avon but you can also pick up from places such as Amazon and EBay. What Avon Say This revitalizing face mask removes dry, flaky skin as it cleans while the massaging action relaxes stressed, tense muscles and helps stimulate circulation. The tube is cream in colour, with some swirl patterns in white and has the product name and description detailed in black writing. In my opinion this makes the product look quite expensive and classy. This is topped with a clear plastic flip top lid what the tube stands on which I like as it means all the cream is sat waiting at the bottom of the tube when I am ready to use. Using the product is really easy, just apply an even layer all over my face (which I have cleansed and removed all my makeup), let the mask set, which takes about 10minutes and then simply peel off. It is a bit of a guessing game initially to find out what the best thickness of layer is to use, if I applied too much, it takes ages to dry and if I apply too little, when it comes to removing the mask, I find it really hard to do so and spend ages picking little bits from my face. Apparently, Avon sell a spatula which can help you apply the correct thickness layer which costs a couple of pound, personally, I am not sure how this could work and after a couple of uses, I soon got the hang of how much I need to apply. Upon first applying, the one thing that I really liked was the fragrance; it has quite a strong vanilla smell. It has a really nice consistency to it, when applying, it stays where it should yet isn''t that thick that I have to pull on my skin when spreading across my face. It reminded me of thick PVA glue when I first applied this. When applied, I can see that the cream has quite a translucent look to it, even more so when it dries (I look a bit plastic with it on). If spread evenly, I find that the mask dries quite quickly considering and it is really easy to remove. The mask peels off in nice big sheets and doesn''t pull at my skin like other masks I have used in the past. After I have removed the mask, my skin feels wonderfully soft , smoother and it does have a nice glow to it. My skin normally looks quite dull yet it looks a lot brighter when I have used this. If I could pick a negative about the mask it would be that the results are quite short lived, by the following day, my skin looks and feels the same as it did before. For this reason, I like to use the product a couple of times a week to get the maximum benefits.
I have owned this face mask for over a year and I have to say that I hardly ever use it purely because it takes so long to peel off at the end! It costs around £5 on its own or you can buy a kit with this and other related products that work well together.
You only need to apply a really thin layer all over your face except your eyes and lips (it would hurt). I find that although it does feel like my skin is clean and fresh, the imperfections are still there and it doesnt help stubborn spots like the body shop products do.
I also have the moisturiser that goes with this mask and when used together they smell really nice and keep your skin in good condition overnight if you use it before bed.
The liquid is white and quite thick. Avoid your hair line as it is a complete nightmare to peel it off from there and it really hurts like your pulling your hair out! It takes 20minutes to dry and it recommends that you use it once a week. It claims to smooth the skin and Im not sure if the Japanese ingredients do this or if its the product itself.
It comes in a very light pink tube with a flip lid. I have the 75ml size and it has lasted so long that I dont think I will buy it again.
Through the years I've tried many products from the Avon catalogue, one of them being the sake and rice face mask from the planet spa range. I've had good experiences from their planet spa range in the past so when I saw this product in the sale booklet for just £1.50 reduced from the previous brochure price of £4.50; I decided to give it a go. My skin type is slightly oily and prone to spot breakouts so I was intrigued to see the effects of the product.
The face mask is a peel off mask that should set 20 minutes or so after being applied to your skin. It says on the tube that it has to be applied in a consistent and thin layer to work at its best, and I've also discovered that if you don't apply it the recommended way it tends to take up to an hour to set! So if you aren't the best at applying products like this one I recommend you buy the face mask spatula which is around £2 from Avon, designed for easier application.
The product is really easy to apply; you just squeeze a reasonable amount of the product to your hand or spatula and then smooth it around your face following your face shape to get the best application. The product has a very subtle and modest scent which reminds me of vanilla body butter mixed with the baby powder scent much like you'd expect from products at a high end spa. The consistency of the product is soft and firm, meaning it isn't runny enough for it to run wild around your face of leak from the tube effortlessly.
Once the mask is dry on your face it will feel like a thin layer of rubber to the touch, this is when you know to remove the mask. Just peel the mask in from the outside of your face and it should come off in a few attempts. I find that when I remove the mask it can have a slight pinching feel which could cause some discomfort if you have irritable skin.
After the mask has been removed my face feels soft to the touch, just like a baby's bottom! I notice that any blackheads I have on my nose clean off very well with this mask it also helps reduce the visibility of the few spots I have which came as a pleasant surprise to me. The results don't tend to last as long as I would like, usually between one and two days, however you could use this mask a few times a week to keep the results visible if you have the spare time.
Great product with great results, a bit of a pain if you don't apply the product correctly and the results could last longer, however for £1.50 I got more than I paid for. Worth picking up if you see it in the sale booklet!
I can't recall how much I paid for this face mask as I bought it a while ago now.
My face mask was exactly the same as this one apart from the fact that it was presented in a small plastic tub, not a tube as pictured above.
The face mask has a nice smell to it, although I find it difficult to describe smells! I would say that it is quite menthol and cooling. It's quite a refreshing scent but nice at the same time. It's not overpowering but I think some people would think it is a little strong.
The mask is easy apply to the face, although the consistency is a little gloopy. I was assured that this was normal for the mask, due to the ingredients used in it.
The mask doesn't really dry on the face, it just sits there looking pretty! As it doesn't dry on the face it is really easy to remove and the mask doesn't leave any residue on your face after use either. The mask didn't do anything for my spots but it did make my skin look brighter and healthier. However, this effect didn't last all that long. It's good for a quick fix though and it's a great mask to use before a party as it leaves you looking radiant and glowing.
A decent facial mask from Avon.
I have three different masks i use all from avon. One is the dead sea minereals, I love how clear my skin looks after use. Another is the clearskin blackhead mask it helps clear pores and another is the
Avon Planet Spa Japanese Sake & Rice Face Mask, i love the smoothing and rejuvenation effect it has on my skin. I buy this one for around £3.00. It comes in a easy to read and see white tub with an easy lid and dispenser.
The mask itself it very thick and white also like tipex. But, don't let that put you off because it has a lovely skin and feels nice on the skin
Avon Planet Spa Japanese Sake & Rice Face Mask Is a peel away mask that removes dead skin cells, soaks up excess oil on the skin leaving skin radiant plump and glowing.
How to apply, Wash skin with luke warm water you can use your a cleanser as well or even exfoliate or even use a facial steamer this works great before you use any mask if you own a facial steamer it's best to use it once a week or once every two weeks no more than that. before use if you wish. Smooth a thick layer over your face you will see little black dots on the mask these are your pores or spots showing through. When the mask has dried peel away and say hello to your beautifully smooth skin!
I give this a 4/10 because its not my favourite mask. But it does exactly what it claims to do and it will leave your skin as soft as a new born babies. Your skin will also look plump so its good for anyone at any age.
I got this as part of a deal, so it's a smaller bottle as the original size. I absolutely LOVE the smell of this product and am definitely going to buy the bigger one from the next brochure. After applying it thinly and leaving on for between 15 and 20 minutes you can easily come it off leaving your skin feeling soft, refreshed and dead skin cell free :)I've used this several times now and am pleased with the results (as mentioned above) and am going to look at other Avon Planet Spa products. I would definitely consider buying other Japanese Sake & Rice products too because it smells so nice, I actually cant get enough of this nice smell :)I'd recommend this a present as well if you're stuck for ideas
Avon Planet Spa Japanese Sake and Rice Face Mask is a great bargin I got mine from Avon for just £1.50. I think that is a bargain though I got mine on offer so the usual price is £4.50 to 5. The Planet Spa range is usually cheap and is always on offer.
The mask is to be applied straight onto the face avoiding the eye area, wait till the mask hardens and goes slightly flaky. It dries within 5 to 10 mins then peel it off. If certain areas have dried in faster and not peeled off, some warm water and a flannel will dissolve it straight always so no worrying.
Usually when I pick up random peel off masks they end up giving my skin irritation afterwards but this particular one has not, and my skin gets very sensitive off many products.
So I give it 10 out 10 for all you people who have sensitive skin don't worry.
You will be amazed at the end result your skin will feel so soft. All the dead skin cells will have peeled off leaving you with radiant, smooth skin .I .am a beauty therapist and I have been using this in my facials and it certainly has made a difference to every skin type.
Give it a try and see amazing results after a month my skin looked raidient and avon is giving its best results here. The spa naturals range is a hit with me.
I bought the avon planet spa facemask for £2 as part of a deal, I think it normally retails at £4.50 ish but avon frequently do various deals, so its often cheaper.
This planet spa mask is the japanese sake and rice smoothing facemask. The mask claims to remove impurities, for a cleaner more refreshed look. To do this you apply a thin layer of the lotion to clean, dry skin; wait about 20minutes until it is completly dry then peel off.
For your money you get a 75ml tube that stands on its flip top lid, so product is always at the end. The tube is very pale pink witha white planet spa motif and black writing about the product, whilst the lotion itself is white. It is fairly hard to squeeze out as the lotion is pretty thick. I have to admit when I first opened it I thought this is never going to peel off! But I was wrong it peeled off fairly well and a bit of warm soapy water removed any leftover bit very well.
When the mask is drying your face does feel very tight, but when it was off my face did feel refreshed.
A nice facemask to sit in the bath with.
There are face masques and face masks. I have used some wonderful ones in my time, one of my faves being the Dermalogica multivitamin power recovery masque, which will set you back to the tune of twenty odd quid. For those on a more refined budget, Avon offers affordable products that won't leave your wallet empty for the next month.
This is a nifty little mask which is designed to perk up dull skin and also rid your face of nasty dead skin cells. It is possible to exfoliate some of these cells away with a decent facial scrub, but a mask will go further and permeate deeper into the skin, shredding unwanted layers.
It comes in a neat and discreet tube, so you could easily have it in a bag or even a pocket for emergencies! Perfect to travel with, or keep in the bathroom cabinet. To use, apply to cleansed dry skin and work into the cheeks and neck in gentle circular motions. It is then wise to leave it to work some magic for up to ten minutes. You can leave it for longer if desired. No tingling sensation here, as the ingredients are all soothing and calming. Then rinse off, this is quite lightweight so rinsing is easy.
The results are satisfactory, leaving skin a little more radiant, though not as bright and perky as the Dermalogica masque. I have also had better results with the fresh face masques from Lush stores. This does leave the face feeling calmer and soothed and lovely to touch, but does not offer the dazzling results of the higher priced masks. For under five pounds though it does represent a cheaper alternative for people on a budget and would suffice as a mid week pick me up. Worth considering, but not an essential.
THis is another thing my cousin gave me when she gave up her Avon round and its another thing from the Planet Spa Japanese Sake And Rice range that I don't like much.
It's got a weird smell and the mask looks like the sort of glue my little sister makes collages with. The smell is proper manky and sort of smells like rice but it's sweeter and smells a lot like plastic.
It's a bit hard to squeeze out of the tube because it's dead thick and sticky and when I dropped a bit in the sink I had to use a scourer to get it off because tissue just smeared it round in the bottom of the sink. It feels like that my on face as well and felt proper thick as it was drying and got on my nerves a bit because I could feel it all over my skin.
It took about 20 mins to dry completely and then it was easy to peel off and it all came off in one piece. It stuck a bit where I got it too close to my eyebrows but that came off with a bit of baby shampoo and warm water.
After I had used it my skin felt a bit softer but had gone proper shiny and I had to leave it for a bit until I went out because it looked really bad. It wasn't much softer but when the shine had gone it was smoother to touch and the effects lasted for 2 days.
The face mask made my skin a bit itchy after I'd used it and I didn't like that plus I reckon there are better face masks for a cheaper price because this one was £4.50 and it's not worth that price. It's ok but there are loads of little things I didn't like about it that makes it a bad buy for me. The Montagne Jeunesse masks are loads better and smell wicked!
I had been saying I wanted to try a face mask for some time and my Mum kindly bought me this one from the Avon catalogue for Christmas. I didnt have any experience with facemasks, so I didnt have any specific requirements, only that it was a peel off one as I didnt want to be washing my face for days trying to strip it off!
Avon planet Spa Japanese Sake and Rice Face Mask comes in a white tube, with enough facemask for about three tries, depending on how thick your coverage is I guess. The tube gives a clean and zen filled atmospheric effect as it is plain and white with not too much detailing on, which is fine, so long as it does the job!
Opening the tube gives a plesant smell, in retrospect this is very important as it would be terrible having something really smelly on your face for ages. The face mask was cream in appearance and had a thick consistency that was bumpy and irregular, based on the ingredients I would expect this.
The face mask was easy to apply evenly to my face, and washing my hands as soon as possible afterwards ensured they didnt get sticky. I left the facemask on until it has dried, which was about 5 minutes, which enabled me to peel it off easily. The facemask came off with some dead looking skin cells, which made me think it had done the job, however my face did not appear glowing and brand new as I had hoped. Maybe my hopes were just to high for my first facepack try!
Well, my bath is being taken out today to be replaced with a wet room which is essential for my health but unfortunate in that I will greatly miss my long hot baths. So last night I toasted the end of my long relationship with the tub and settled back for a soak with my last Lush bubble bar, a glass of wine and a face mask.
The face mask I chose to use last night was an Avon Planet Spa Japanese Sake and Rice Face Mask which I have had in the bathroom for a while, but as with so many Avon products there are always other things which appeal more and I rarely remember to use them before they go 'off'.
As I opened the tube and squeezed some into my hand I was shocked at the similarities between this as the PVA glue that children use, it has a very tacky consistency and when I move my hand up to my face I was perturbed to notice strands of the mask stretching from my face to my hand which served to put me even more in mind of the fact that I could be spreading glue on my face!
It even has a faint scent of PVA glue to it although this is mixed with a slightly floral aroma and also perhaps a touch of baby powder. It's actually a very subtly scented face mask which is ideal for me as I find I can react to more heavily fragranced facial products, especially those from Avon unfortunately as I am quite a fan of their Planet Spa range.
This is a peel off mask which dried in around 20 minutes, it's a more pleasant feeling than I had initially expected and as it dries it tightens nicely on my face which feels very moisturising. When I came to peel it off I was pleased to find it came off in one go and didn't tug at my skin at all, the only problem then while lying in the bath is what to do with the small ball of dried face mask once I've pulled it all off!
Immediately after peeling off the mask I could feel that my skin felt smoother to the touch and a quick glance in the mirror also revealed that it had a brighter tone and appeared to be more even in colour. The skin on my face seems to be well moisturised as a result of using this product and even now, some fourteen hours after my bath, the effects are still very much apparent in both the appearance and feel of my skin.
The only issue I have with this mask is the fact that if you happen to accidentally get a little on your hairline then it's the devil's job to get it out. I got some on the front of my hair and it took no less than three shampooings to remove it and stop my hair from sticking together - just what I didn't need as I really didn't want to wash my hair last night!
Overall though I think this is a fantastic face mask. I bought mine when it was on special offer with other items from the Planet Spa range but the usual price is £4.50, which in my opinion is a little higher than I would expect to pay for an Avon face mask but considering how effective it was I would say in this case it's well worth the money.
When it comes to face masks I'm a huge fan of them as a rule. I think it's just cos I see them as a pampering product more than anything else and so if I have a hot date or I'm going out on big night out with the girls I can usually be found prior to the event with a face mask on and lazing in the bath and the likes! Ok I'm vain...I admit it lol.
Not being a fan of Avon products but loving my rep, Anita I always feel obliged to purchase something from her so I tend to buy stuff on offer or reduced to mainly keep her happy lol.
I saw this on offer at £5.00 a tub (usual price £8.50) and decided that as I use face mask alot it wouldn't hurt to give this one a go!
Has slightly changed lately so is not as depicted as on the top of this review page! The mask now comes in a clear 75ml pot with a white screw on/off lid to the top of it and on that there is a very light pink and white label on there and on that I'm told it's Planet Spa Japanese Sake And Rice invigorating face Mask from Avon and the size is stated. The pot comes in an off white box and again on the front I'm told what it is and all the information given on the pot is once again listed. On the bottom of the box ingredients are listed, contact details for Avon are given and the recycle symbol is displayed. What is nice about this product is that for once Avon has given us a bit of information about what we've purchased. I'm fed up of buying products from this company and not knowing how to use them from time through a lack of directions given! This however has a white leaflet in the box and on that I'm told a bit about the product and then shown a reflexology map of the face and then all that information is of course given in the usual style of Avon....given over and over again in foreign languages lol.
A Bit About The Product According to The leaflet....
This revitalizing face mask removes dry, flaky skin as it cleans while the massaging action relaxes stressed, tense muscles and helps stimulate circulation.
Massage into damp skin applying gentle pressure to acupuncture points indicated on included face map. Leave on for 5 minutes until mask lightly dries. Using fingertips, massage of mask gently in circular motion. Rinse remaining mask off with warm water. Use 2 times a week.
Well the first time you go to use this product and twist off the lid you're met with a pull off piece of white plastic which keeps the product fresh. Then I was shocked (due to the quantity not being very much at all and less than half the supplied tub) with a highly sweet and creamy very wet and runny face mask which is oatmeal beige in colour with bits of bran in there sort of looking like you've made some porridge up far too runny!
Applying it due to the consistency is very easy and a little of this product really does go a long way indeed. It smears on rather transparent and all you can see is the small bits of exfoliating beads which there is an abundance of. Following the instructions I apply it to slightly damp skin and first off massage it all over my face which although it feels quite exfoliating it really doesn't feel scratchy or uncomfortable no matter how much pressure you apply using it. I then, with the help of the face map included in the box massage certain areas. An example of this is if you massage your chin your massaging your sexual organs...ahem.
Then after a couple of minutes of gentle massage and another quick rub over my face I leave the mask to do it's job for a few minutes until it dries as promised slightly. It gives off a rather weird cooling and heated sensation as it penetrates the skin and the only issue I had with this mask is that it really did make my eyes water though it wasn't a huge problem it did make one of my eyes feels lightly sore for the duration this product was on my face.
Rinsing it off was easy to do and I simply used cool water and that was that it was all very straightforward and uncomplicated to use.
Easy to use this is truly a gorgeous product and no wonder it normally costs £8.50 a tube to be fair to it. Not only does it leave skin smelling gorgeous and luxurious, skin looks a hundred per cent brighter and smoother (in my opinion). It really did deep down cleanse my skin and it felt so clean! My lines and wrinkles looked softer and all round my skin just looked so hydrated (in a none greasy way) and was as smooth as a babies bum! I find that if I use this a couple of times a week as a skin treat my skin appreciates it and overall my complection looks so much brighter prior to using this and I've had no new spots or blackheads appear of late. I really, really rate this as a luxurious skin treatment for men and women who really need a skin brightener and desire smooth skin ta boot!
Only available from Avon.
Avon Planet Spa Japanese Sake & Rice Face Mask is one of my favourite face masks of all time. It retails for £4.25, and recently the product was sold on sale for only £1 per tube! It was because Avon had changed the outer packaging and were selling off this product in the old style packaging to clear stock space for the new product. I did not mind what tube my product came in, especially for only £1!
This product is very easy to use. Just flip the cap open and squeeze a small amount of the product into your hand. The product is a very thick, white liquid that smells very cleanly and faintly of rice. It is easy to smooth over skin, and it covers well without running or leaving any gaps.
It takes around fifteen minutes to dry in my experience, and I can always feel it tightening across my skin which I take to be a good sign that the product has worked well. What I really love about this mask is that it peels off in one go, I do not find that bits of this product remain clinging to my skin, or that I have to resort to washing it off in areas where it has not dried (which is something I have to do with other products).
I find that after use, my skin feels very soft and looks noticeably smoother. I think this product is particularly effective at removing dead skin cells and deeply moisturising my skin. It is a firm favourite of mine and I hope that Avon continue to sell it for a long time to come. Please note that it is not on sale in the current brochure, but it is still an active product and it should be in the next brochure.
