Olay Masks: Fresh Reset Pink Mineral Complex Clay Stick - Product Review

Thursday, October 11, 2018

Unfortunately, I do not have anything great to say about the new Olay Mask Sticks, at least not for the Fresh Reset version. The first time I used it my face, the more sensitive areas tingled a bit. I have used masks that have led to a similar feeling and it was fine so I did not think much of it.
My initial reaction to the product was positive. I liked how it was mostly mess-free (not good for around the nose application though). I used the product once the first week I was testing with my normal face wash and moisturizers. The second week I decided to use it twice. The first of these two uses was okay. My face tingled like the first time, slightly more intensified though. This made me a little nervous, but not enough to keep me from using it again 5 days later. This was a mistake. For the final test, I used it after using the Olay Regenerist Cleansing Whips face wash that I received with the mask. The color of the pink mineral mask left me looking like I had a sunburn when it was on my face and after removing it the final time, my face felt like it had a sunburn. The areas of my face that are the most sensitive (cheeks, forehead) stayed red for days after using it. I can easily say that if you have sensitive skin of any kind (super sensitive, slightly sensitive, combination w/sensitivity) you shouldn’t use this product, and if for some reason you do...never more than once a month.

Granted, I honestly just think the whole product was badly designed. As you twist the container to bring more product out, some of it leaks under the plastic pushing it up. I hate wasted product! Also, I mentioned earlier, but application around the nose area just does not work. One of the appeals for this mask is that it is supposed to be “mess free”. However, as you can see in some of the pictures I included, it gets all over the lid of the container. Then, of course, there is the biggest problem facing this product and all of the other “stick” versions of things for your face coming out all of a sudden. It is incredibly unhygienic. It does not matter if you wash your face before using, oils and bacteria from your face are going to find a new home in this stuff and that is just not good for your skin.

*I received this product for testing purposes from Influenster in exchange for an honest review.
