Product Review: MyFaceWorks Collagen Boosting Mask

Happy Friday! I received a sample pack of MyFaceWorks masks a while ago, and finally found time to unleash the powers of...the mask.

I felt like quite the caped crusader and sort of like a mummy too whilst sitting around my apartment this afternoon.

First, you cut open a rectangular packet and inside is a face-shaped silk sheet drenched in a beautifying serum. Unfold the MFW sheet, remove the plastic layer and pat it on your face just so. I didn't read the label before applying it, but the one I tried is called "I Need to Be Firm." I normally don't worry about my skin looking firm, but it was interesting to experiment.

The mask is designed to boost collagen, and I think that it does give you a touch of that Hollywood red carpet glow without going to a spa. After leaving the mask on for 20 minutes, my skin felt slightly firmer and more plump. The mask's ingredients include sodium hyaluronate (which can help skin appear smoother) and witch hazel (shrinks pores), as well as cucumber extract and algae extract.

If you are the type of gal who often runs from work to a date, you could stash these in your desk (right next to the Luna bars!).

BUY IT: MyFaceWorks sheet masks sets are $55 for a 6-pack, or $15 for a single mask. Available at New London Pharmacy, 246 Eighth Avenue in Manhattan or
