GOODAL Water Full Firming Mask is a total fail in my books. It reeks of alcohol and seems to be doing nothing on my skin. Dear reader, please invest into better products than this. Dear GOODAL, reformulate!

Oh boy where do I begin. Everything about the look of this mask tells you “buy me I’m pretty). The ingredients list is outrageously long, filled with all nutrient stuff so it is easy to miss the enemy. This mask is full of good and bad including alcohol, fragrance and bunch of silicone. Packaging is vibrant and pretty, very loveable for someone at younger age.
I got this mask as a part of a monthly subscription box so I rolled with it and tried it out when I got 20 minutes while my baby was napping. Once I opened the packed I immediately smelled something like Old Spice scent aftershave. The scent was strong and reeked of alcohol. I was hesitant to put it on my first but seeing how long the ingredient list was I thought “Oh well, plenty of nourishing stuff there, shouldn’t be that bad”.
The fit and adherence of this mask are admirable. Synthetic sheet is very thin synthetic fiber that is absorbent and adheres extremely well to the skin. The essence is watery and translucent and couple of drops have escaped onto my shirt. After 5 minutes my face started warming up so I thought that the mask was doing something good. Within another 5 minutes I changed my mind and removed the mask. Upon the inspection my face was red and glowing. It has triggered some reaction that looked like allergic rash after 2 days.
Surprise ya’ll, I was never allergic to anything until GOODAL came along. I would never advise this mask to anyone no matter what skin type you have. It also feels weird to supply you with the links where to buy it from. I still included them in case you have had previous experience with this mask that didn’t end up in a disaster.
