Maxbrands Alpaca Face Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask that I found at my local Home Bargains store – Maxbrands Alpaca Face Sheet Mask. This face mask contains cucumber extract, and it promises to help improve skin’s elasticity and to boost the skin.

This is a normal sheet mask – you place it onto your cleansed face, leave it on for 15 minutes, then bin the mask, and massage the leftover essence from the sachet into your face. Job done! Read on if you’d like to know if this mask is any good. 🙂

Whilst I’m still not sure what boosting the skin is supposed to mean, I’m satisfied that this mask feels deeply hydrating without being sticky. This mask also seems to plump up my skin – I guess this is what boosting the skin might refer to…

Having said this, I think this mask could smell nicer. Parfum is listed as the last ingredient on the list, so there can’t be much fragrance in it. However, some people prefer products with little or no added fragrance, so if this is what you like, this mask might be worth a try.

Maxbrands Alpaca Face Sheet Mask is available as 25ml. I paid 79p (Home Bargains).

Have you tried this mask or would you like to try it? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  1. I think boosting the skin does have something to do with plumping it, that was my first initial thought anyway. I think I prefer that this isn’t overly scented actually, but obviously each to their own. I’m not really a sheet mask person, but this one does look super cute and such a great price too! Thanks for sharing ❤️

  2. I kind of love all these masks with faces printed on them, they’re so cute! 😁 Sounds like it had some effect on your skin, so many sheet masks don’t seem to do much. I might keep an eye out for this and see if mine has it near me when my sheet mask stash decreases a bit! 😁

  3. Omg this is the cutest mask ever!! Alpacas are adorable!! I actually prefer skincare products with little to no fragrance, I dont remember where I had heard or read that fragrances were no good for the facial skin. I will have to look into it and see if that’s truth or myth because I dont remember.
    Anyway, glad to know its hydrating, those are my favorite masks.

    • Yes, this is such a cute mask!

      About fragrances… it’s been a big subject for a while, but there is not a single one ingredient that is “fragrance”. The fragrance in a product could be made from countless ingredients of natural or synthetic origin (or it could be a mix of both). So many people incorrectly assume that as soon as an ingredient or a product has a pleasant scent, it must have have an unspecified bad influence on skin, hair, the body or the mind.

      Many people also incorrectly assume that unscented and scent-free are the same thing, when this couldn’t be further from the truth… there are plenty of products that simply smell like the sum of their ingredients (usually not very pleasant), whilst the products that don’t smell of anything at all are usually made with scent-masking components – mostly of synthetic origin!

      As an example, Olay’s yellow day fluid has been one of my favourite moisturisers for 15 (maybe 20) years. This product served me very well over the years. The fragrance-free version of the same product made the skin around my eyes tingle, and I noticed that my skin developed red patches. When I stopped using the fragrance-free day fluid and went back to the normal fragranced one, my skin recovered quickly.

      In the end, who knows what’s “better” and what’s “worse”? If your skin isn’t happy with a certain product, it’ll let you know. 😉

      • Since you mentioned it I had to look up on it. Makes sense that fragrances are not one single ingredient. Basically some fragrances or perhaps the ingredients that are used to either add a fragrance or mask a fragrance CAN* have adverse effects on people with sensitive skin (or not). I guess it all depends on skin type and how each person reacts to certain ingredients because again, it could be ingredients and not the fragrance itself. 🤷‍♀️
        I’m still trying to figure out what my skin liked and dislikes. My skin some times does get irritated but I havent looked into the ingredients fully to better understand since most of the products that give me a reaction are one time use lol

      • Exactly – every product is made from a number of components. In theory, every single component can cause a reaction, regardless of what its function is. Truth is, the components which are most likely to cause a reaction are usually not synthetic fragrances but natural ingredients like nut oils, flower waters, etc. After all, people are more likely to be allergic to peanuts or pollen than to some random fragrant ingredient. But yeah, everything “is bad for you” nowadays…

        I hope you get to find out what causes your skin to react. I hope you’ll find out what it is so you can avoid it. xo
