I bought two of these, they were on offer and only £2 each. I had never tried peel off mask before, I have used clay masks etc that you put on and then wash off. I thought using a peel off mask would stop the washing it off part and be less messy and easier.
The tube itself is a white/light green colour with Naturals across the top with the picture logo. It mentions the ingredients on the back and how to apply the product. It stands on a clear screw top lid, once removed it hold a clear green mask.
I tied my hair back and prepared to mask myself up, the mask comes out of the tube easily enough, it is thick and smoothing it onto my face wasn't that difficult, it was a bit sticky though. It doesn't smell horrendous, it has a slight tea tree twang to it but it's not nasty. It does dry eventually, depending on the thickness you apply the mask, it can take a while for the whole face to dry totally. Once it starts to dry, especially around the nose and mouth area, it can itch really badly. I end up having to peel it off in sections depending on what bit dries at what time. The sides of the nose and top lip go first as whey tend to dry quickest so start to itch first. After that I just wait for it to either itch or dry then I peel. It peels off easily enough, getting it stuck to the edge of your hair can be a little painful to remove but not as bad a waxing.
Once removed it does leave your skin feeling refreshed and soft. Due to it not drying consistently I do find I have to wash the little bits off afterwards, so it hasn't really removed the need to wash the mask off entirely. You do have little bits of green mask left on your face and if you have tried to remove it before it has dried completely, you remove the top layer but you end up with a sticky mess that doesn't quite dry, this is the residue you have to wash away.
I have dry skin in my 'T' zone and try to use this mask every week to improve my skin. I am not sure it has made a miraculous difference overall but it defiantly feels smoother afterwards.
I first remember using a peel off mask when I was about 5 years old and myself and my cousins raided through our grandmothers drawers and found one, using it of course we had no idea what it was and then wondered why it had gone funny on our hands!
The peel off mask is obviously from Avon and it is from their naturals range which has been going as far as I can remember. The tube of product holds 75mls of products and it has a RRP of £3.50 although as any of you who have read my reviews will know I never pay full price for an Avon product as I always wait for their offers.
The product is packaged in a soft plastic see through tube and it stands on its screw top cap, on the front there is the name of the product and then on the back are the directions for use and a list of ingredients.
To use the product I would suggest putting on a hair band or tying back your hair as it does cling to hair quite well. You simply squeeze the tube and place a small amount of product onto your fingertips and then gently apply to your face evenly. The product is pretty thick and is quite sticky hence tying hair back, you need to make sure you don't apply it too thickly or it takes forever to dry.
As the product dries on your skin you can feel it tightening, I find it dries well on every part of my face except on my cheeks and generally takes 15-20 minutes to dry although I do sometimes find it hard to resist peeling it off before that. Once the product is dry you simply use your fingernail to get a little edge up and then peel it back. Once you have peeled the mask off I generally wash my face to make sure there are no remnants left.
The product smells nice and has the normal smell of tea tree products, the mask leaves my face feeling lovely and soft and I feel that my skin looks refreshed.
The mask is easy to use and gives good results although I didn't feel it did anything to help the blocked pores on my nose.
I like to pamper myself every now and then with a face mask, but because my skin is quite sensitive, I have to be careful about which one I choose.
The face mask that I have purchased is from Avons Naturals range and is a Tea Tree peel off mask. The tube contains 75ml and retails for about £3.50. Avon occasionally does special offers with their Naturals range, where you can buy any three items for £5. When these offers happen I stock up on lots of tubes, so I havent had to buy any of these for a while, but my stocks are becoming very low.
The tube itself is clear and has the name of the product on the front and a picture of a tree. The back of the tube has instructions for use and ingredients. I like the idea that this tube is clear, as I can see when it starts to run low, so I can dig out another one.
TESTING THE PRODUCT
Opening the tube is simple enough, with an easy screw lid. Beneath the lid is a small hole, which is good because you can control the amount of face mask that comes out.
The smell is not too strong. It does have quite an unusual fragrance and I really cannot describe it. The smell is obviously of Tea Tree, and I cannot smell anything else.
I squeeze a small amount out of the tube. The gel that comes out feels quite thick and is very sticky. The instructions tell me to put on my face, avoiding the eye area, leave for twenty minutes and then peel off.
Even though the colour of this when in the tube is almost grass green, once it is out, it is a lot lighter. When you put it on your face it is clear.
Application is easy enough. It doesnt run everywhere when I apply it to my face because it is so thick. Once I have covered my face with it, my skin just looks shiny.
I can feel this working straight away. I can feel it tingling on my face and as the minutes pass, I can feel the mask tighten slightly.
Approximately twenty minutes later I touch my face to see if the mask has dried, and it has. The removal of it is simple I just loosen a piece of the mask on the side of my face and lift it off. The mask virtually comes off in one piece.
After removing the mask I am surprised how soft my face feels. It also feels cleansed and nice and refreshed. When I take a closer look in the mirror, I also find that the couple of blackheads I had on my noise are not quite as visible.
For more information on the product you can have a look at Avons website, which is www.avonshop.co.uk
The back of the tube says that this product is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
I could not find anything of note regarding allergy advice on the back of the tube.
I really like this face mask. I found it very easy to apply and whilst it did have a slightly unusual smell to me, it was not too strong or off putting.
I liked that this was quite thick when you put it on and that it didnt run anywhere. I thought that my face would have turned green once I put it on, turning me into a female version of the incredible hulk, but the only evidence that I actually had this on was the fact that my face looked shiny.
I was really surprised when I could feel it working shortly after application. I could feel my face become slightly warm and tingling. It didnt feel irritated at all. In fact it felt quite pleasant. I could also feel the mask tightening on my face as time progressed.
Twenty minutes was a reasonable enough time to keep a mask on. I must admit I did touch my face a few times during the twenty minutes to see how it was drying and it felt tacky. However once the twenty minutes had passed it felt dry to the touch.
I did find that whilst the mask was on my face, that it was slightly difficult to talk, because the mask was tightening my face. This wasnt an uncomfortable feeling or unpleasant in any way. In fact my husband thought it was quite good that he could have a bit of quiet for twenty minutes!!
Removal of the mask was very simple indeed. You just loosened a section and the whole thing peeled off in practically one piece. This was so easy compared to other masks, where you have to wash them off in warm water and double check your face to make sure that it has all removed, and not stuck in your hairline.
I worry sometimes about using face masks because I have sensitive skin and find that this can sometimes be aggravated. After removing the mask my skin felt really cleansed and refreshed. It felt soft to the touch and blackheads were noticeably less visible.
I used this facemask yesterday evening but wanted to wait until today to see what my face was like. I examined my face today to see if my skin had been aggravated by using this, and I am pleased to say that it hasnt.
The only downside I could think of with this facemask could be the price. At £3.50 a tube, it could be considered slightly expensive, but Avon do have it in their three items for £5 offer quite often, so I tend to stock up on it then.
WOULD I RECOMMEND
Yes. Its a really good face mask that leaves your face feeling cleansed and refreshed.
Thanks for taking the time to read my review, Cath. xxx
I was looking around at the health and beauty sites on the net the other day, as Im at the moment studying at a health and beauty academy and am buying lots of products to test out on the skin, as well having always been interested in health and beauty.
I came across the Avon site and sent off for a brochure and the first thing I ordered was one of the Avon Tea Tree Peel-Off Masks.
I like the idea that things are becoming more natural in the beauty business as there are lots of chemical products I have to use during the day on clients and Im not too keen on them, a more natural gentle approach to the skin products seems to keep the skin looking younger and healthier, in my opinion.
So, I like to buy products which arent harsh to the skin. I have sensitive skin and have to be very careful what I put on otherwise I come out in a red rash, which isnt to good for a teenagers confidence, or when your due to go out with your mates.
Avon tea tree peel off mask is quite gentle on the skin. It comes in a tube you can easily use to squeeze out enough to cover each part of your face a bit at a time.
Make sure you wash your face first before applying, then apply a bit at a time covering all the face and remembering to avoid the eyes.
The liquid is a nice colour of green as it dries it becomes a clearer green, you will feel it tighten as it dries and be careful to allow yourself some time alone to use this. You dont want to be disturbed by answering the phone, otherwise youll end up with lines on your face which the mask will leave if you have to talk.
I always lie on the bed with slices of cucumber over my eyes and relax for the twenty minutes it takes to dry on.
Not only does this do your skin good but the time relaxing chills you out and makes you feel better.
When the mask is dry you can peel it off, this can be a bit tricky as it doesnt always come off in one go, but its not too bad or sticky.
Rinse your face with warm water after and pat the skin with a dry towel.
I paid £2.49 for this product and ordered other Avon products at the same time so there may be other reviews to follow, if I have the time between studying.
Id give this 8 out of 10 as there is a real difference to the skin after using it. My skin feels softer and it has a deep cleansing action which is gentle on sensitive skin.
If your wanting to look good for a night out with the girls then its well worth the effort, although the price is dearer than other beauty products you buy for your skin. I think you always get the quality you pay for and when you have sensitive skin the cheaper versions might bring you out in a rash and thats just a pain and a waste of money
Avon Peel off mask I was watching the TV the other night as Ross was on the computer and I couldn’t get a wee shot and talk to my friends online. I was a bit bored and though what can I do with myself .I remembered I had Avon products in the cupboard. My granddaughter Kayleigh had an Avon book for a short time and I bought some of the products just to boost her pocket money. I found Naturals Tea Tree Peel off Mask. I had tried the tee tree shampoo and loved the smell and the tingle it gave me (another Op coming in the future) What does it look like? It comes in a squishy container kind of like the shape of a toothpaste tube. It has a black screw on lid. The tube is a frosty white and the peel off mask is a lovely pale green, not unlike the colour of a Granny Smith apple. What does it smell like? I unscrewed the lid it has a lovely clean fresh smell, tee tree products have a smell of their own but believe me it is really nice First remember to cleanse your face first then you squeeze out a wee bit at a time so not to waste it and spread it evenly on your face. Please be careful to avoid your eyes as it might sting. If feels really nice actually. I thought it would be runny bit it was more like a gel and quite nice to spread on. At this stage I was feeling really pampered and I had to wait for twenty minutes before peeling off. I remembered what face treatments used to be like, they went all hard and white and we looked like ghosts and you couldn’t talk (very hard for me) as it all cracked and fell off and made a terrible mess. I kept checking in the mirror in case Ross came in and it had dried funny and I gave the poor guy a terrible fright Lol . It was no problem I didn’t feel as if I had anything on my face at all. I looked like a green monster (but then what’s new :O) I started to peel it off after twenty minutes and it came off no bother at all. It ca
me off quite a bit at a time. It reminded me of the advert on the Television where the people keep ripping their face off to reveal another underneath. Do you remember the TV series called V? It was so easy and I felt really clean and fresh I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. I think I paid about a pound as it was on promotion at the time at half price. The tube contains 75ml but I only used a small amount so it will last for ages. It says for all types of skin but if it isn’t suitable for you Avon will refund you your money no problem Ingredient just incase your skin is sensitive to any of them Aqua, polyvinyl alcohol, alcohol denat, poloxamer185, parfum, methylparaben, benzophenone-2, melaleuca alternefolia, propylene, glycol, ci19140, ci42090 What do i think of this Tea Tree I think yes pal this will do me I'm not like a ghost all crumbly and white Don't have to hide lest Ross gets a fright I look so good and smell a delight Thanks for reading Margaretxx
I've tried this a couple of times, but I'm not impressed at all. I kept trying various techniques to apply and remove but it just created so much mess I have now given up! First of all it has an odd smell - I know tea tree does smell strange, but surely not as strange as this! And the colour is practically glow-in-the-dark which surely can't be that 'natural'?! Getting it out of the tube was a hassle... it came out in globules and clogged up the nozzle and cap and was very difficult to smooth onto the skin - I couldn't get even coverage even with a spatula which also got clogged up. This was very sticky and took an age to dry, when it did start to dry my skin felt taught and dry - it was very uncomfortable and I started to pick off the edges which had dried out, but had to leave the big gloopy bits dotted around my cheeks and forehead. (NB: this should be a 'pick off mask' not 'peel-off' like the name suggests!) However, once removed I did noticed that blemishes were soothed along with some areas of redness, but my cheeks were left very dry. Probably best to use this on the oily areas only. All in all this was too messy to use regularly and I didn't feel it truly belonged in the 'Naturals' range due to the colour and smell - a bit too manufactured I think. A real shame, because the rest of the Avon Tea Tree range is really good.
Avon sell quite a range of Tea Tree products as Tea Tree contains a natural astringent making it excellent for cleansing the skin and helping to get rid of those annoying spots and blackheads. I decided to try the Tea Tree Peel Off Face Mask when Avon had it on special offer, you must all know by now what I am like when faced with a bargain! It comes in a 75ml tube for about £3. The tube is clear so you can see how much is left, but I would guess that it would last for about 10 applications. To use this product I usually start by putting on a hair band to keep my hair off my face and keep the facemask off my hair! I then cleanse my face as per the instructions on the tube. The next stage is to apply a thin coating to the skin. I do mean thin or it won’t dry properly and subsequently won’t peel off. You will have to wash the sticky residue off with soap and water instead and this spoils the glow that the mask would otherwise have given your skin. You then have to wait for about twenty minutes until the mask dries completely. Providing you have applied it correctly it will peel off in one go, making it a lot less messy than some others I have used, and it leaves my skin glowing and tingly. When you have removed the mask wash your skin in warm, but not hot, water then moisturise as usual. I often splash my face with really cold water after I have washed with the warm water just to close the pores. This product is available from your Avon representative or directly from Avon Cosmetics (www.avon.com) and is covered by their standard money back guarantee. I have used both this one and the Grapefruit one and I both give my skin a real glow and make it feel really clean. The only thing I will say is that, being green, it does look as if your face is rotting when you wear it so don't forget you have it on and answer the door in it!
I'd tried quite a few of the avons natural range of products and have found them to be ok. I then bought a tube of avon's tea tree peel off mask, never again! I prepared my face for the mask ie cleansing it first and then applied the mask. It's got the consistency of super glue! It is fairly easy to apply ie just smear it on and wait for it to dry, which I did. I only applied a thin layer all over my face avoiding the area around my eyes. It was fine till I came to peel it off - thats were the super glue comes in - it took ages to peel away and you end up with nasty little bits of mask every where. I eventually gave up trying to peel it off as it hurt! The end results was a rather sore and extremely red face. So no thanks Avon I will not be buying this product again - a total waste of money!
Although I *love* Avon's tea-tree shower gel, this product does not rate as highly for me..... I do wonder whether this might be because my skin is heading into the more "mature" stage of its life, and whether perhaps this stuff might do better on a teenage face, but it really doesn't do much for my skin. I find it smells fresh and antiseptic, but is unremarkable and difficult to peel off without leaving little bits around the edges (ugh!) If you are young and have so-called problem skin, then this might be worth a try, but my strong recommendations in the tea-tree range would be the blemish solver stick in addition to the shower gel. The blemish solver stick *does* work well to dry out those annoying zits which appear from time to time. It was my liking of the other products I just mentioned which led me to try the face mask, and which would lead me to assume that my dislike of it *might* well just be to do with my skin rather than an innate product fault!
This is the best peel off face mask on the market (and I should know, I've tried a few due to my bad skin!) It comes in a fairly plain packaging (so you are paying for the product not what it comes in) and you can get it delivered to your door by the nice lady who comes round about once or twice a month ... don't you just love waiting for her to arrive? Smear the green gooey stuff on your face in a thinnish layer and wait for it to tighten (don't laugh or you'll crack - quite literally). Once you have set, peel it off starting where it looks the most shiny. It comes off really easily as long as you leave it long enough - usually about 10 minutes, and theres no mess. Your skin feels really tight and refreshed ... not only does it fight spots (cos of the tea tree) but it makes you feel better ... double bonus!
