Yes to Coconut Sheet Mask


More like, Yes to Pain.

Yes to Coconut paper face mask runs around $3 or so and touts itself as boosting hydration of the skin. Some ingredients include: aloe, banana, guava, and hibiscus extracts, coconut oil and water as well as coumarin and other various items. The mask feels stiff and the paper does not drape against the face very well. The eyeholes are not traditional oval or almond shaped but are actually the huge vertical "U" shape that anime eyes traditionally have, strange. It also did not cover under my chin. The serum amount was pretty good, enough to be juicy but not dripping wet. The serum burned like the blazes though. I put it on and could only take it about 5 minutes. My skin was pink/red and blotchy with some raised areas. It almost had the feel and look of hives. Thankfully, it went away when I washed the serum off my face and slathered some more cooling moisturizers all over. 

Overall, not a mask I could in good faith recommend. Skip this bad boy, because based on Ulta reviews, I am not the only one who had this reaction.

    1. LOL! No worries! I kinda of think of it as a facial peel or something now. I am happy I got to try it and thankful you think of me. <3 You gifted me with blog fodder.

    2. *Was* it a facial peel? Sometimes these things don't have the clearest instructions, or what we think is a rejuvenating yadda yadda actually means chemical peel to them.

    3. LOL! I could see maybe some of the Asian masks being that way since I have to translate half of them from Japanese or Korean to English but this one was just a typical hydrating mask, rather than a rejuvenating facial peel. At least from what I read. :-)

  2. Ugh, what a bummer! I like other Yes To Coconuts products; their makeup remover wipes are nice but I will be avoiding the mask now. I have had similar reactions to a couple masks so I know it's not fun. I guess we're bound to find something our skin doesn't like every once in a while.

    1. I love make up remover wipes. So easy and satisfying. Oh sure, I agree. Not every skin care product can be a winner. I am happy I got the chance to try it out.

  3. So more like "No to Yes to Coconuts"? Yeeee-ikes, that sounds super unpleasant, Julie! A lot like the time I set my hide practically ablaze with a mud mask. "Do you smell ham? OH MY GOD, I'M THE HAM!"

    1. Hahahhahhaaa!!! Hawaiian Ham?? Seriously, those clay masks do pulsate. It was not my favorite of the many masks I have worn. This is starting to sound like a melodrama plot....

      See how much I love you? I wear hellacious masks so you don't have to.

    2. Cripes, don't burn your skin off on my/our account! No need to go the fully crispy bacon. ;)

  4. So I'm not the only one whose skin turned to flames with these face mask?! This was the first and only sheet maskin brand I've tried and since it burned my face off and turned it deep red I've just never tried another in fear I was just allergic.
