Giveaway & Review: MaskerAide Face Masks

Looking for the luxury of a spa visit in the privacy of your own home? At only $4.99 per mask, MaskerAide’s line of seriously fabulous face masks will pamper your skin with affordable facial treatments that compliment any skin care routine.

Sheet masks are made from thin fibre sheets that are cut to the contours of the face and soaked in serum. This concept allows for the ingredients to penetrate the skin, stimulate blood flow, and relax facial muscles.

I was lucky enough to try all six of the super-hydrating facial sheet masks that MaskerAide launched in September 2012. The masks showed up in a pearly box with the company’s logo and tied to perfection with a pretty pink bow. I am so happy with them that I want one of you to try them too so there will be a giveaway at the end of this post.

MaskerAide’s sheet masks are perfect for those of you who have sensitive skin like me or are very particular about the ingredients that you apply to your skin. Each of the company’s masks is free of parabens, harsh dyes and pigments, mineral oil, artificial fragrance, glycerine, and benzophenone. They are also eco friendly, vegan friendly, recyclable, and biodegradable—perfect for every skin type!

The Argan Oil based serum in each mask contains a special mix of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and nutrients to target specific skincare concerns or mishaps.

I found the entire experience of trying these masks very relaxing. After having the mask on for a little while, the fabric began to heat up a bit from the warmth of my skin and it felt like the serum was being absorbed by my skin. My skin was left very smooth and moisturized from each mask, and felt very light, fresh, and clean. I did not have to worry about skin irritation or washing the mask away once the 20 minutes had passed. None of the masks felt oily or sticky and I simply patted the remaining serum into my skin after removing the mask and proceeded with my usual skincare routine (applying moisturizer, eye cream, lip balm, etc.).

Three of the masks have a cream based serum and the other three feature a clear serum.

The masks with the cream based serum include:

Beauty Rest’ore – this mask is infused with Argan Oil, Super Fruit Extracts, Green Algae, and Vitamin E to repair skin in need of a beauty rest. While I love all six masks, this one is my favourite as I have been more than lacking in the sleep department and my skin is paying for it. The morning after using this mask, my skin felt very refreshed and less puffy.

I Don’t Wanna Grow Up – hydrating and age defying ingredients such as natural Ylang-Ylang Oil, Argan Oil, Vitamin E, Hydrolized Collagen and Elastin allow this mask to help diminish fine lines and give your skin a youthful glow. At this time, I don’t have many fine lines so I cannot speak of the masks’s effectiveness in that category; however, my skin was very glowy after using it 

Weather Warrior – the soothing and calming ingredients in this mask (Aloe, Green Tea, Witch Hazel, Argon Oil) repair skin that has been damaged by UV rays, wind, and extreme cold. Although it is still Fall, it has been quite cold and windy here. This mask felt very cooling on my wind-damaged skin and left it feeling calm and smooth.

The masks containing the clear serum include:

All Nighter – the All Nighter is another mask that is perfect for those of you who are not getting enough sleep. Natural Peppermint Oil, Aloe, Argan Oil, Heartleaf, Honey, Super Fruit, and Cactus Extracts awaken, cool, and de-puff tired skin. I enjoyed the fresh cooling feeling of this mask and the clear serum was very hydrating.

Detox Diva – this mask contains natural Geranium Oil, Seaweed, and Green Tea Leaf extracts to minimize pores, absorb impurities, and protect from toxins and free radicals. Chinese Plum, Strawberry, and Lemon Fruit Extracts exfoliate skin, while Argan Oil and Honey hydrate. I think that this mask is a great alternative to a harsh scrub. My skin felt clean after using it, not irritated.

Pre Party Prep – this mask is to be used before getting ready for a big night out. Natural Argan Oil, Orange Peel Oil, Super Fruit Extracts, Rice Extract, and Honey prime and smooth the skin. I think that this would be the ideal mask for creating a smooth canvas before applying foundation. I do not use foundation so I cannot comment on its effectiveness in that respect. However, it did leave my skin feeling smooth and the serum felt very light weight and pleasant on my skin.

Overall, I am very impressed with these masks from MaskerAide. While it is a Canadian company, maskeraide.com ships worldwide.


Although I used all the masks that I was sent to try, I managed to collect a few more and will be giving away three masks (Pre Party Prep, All Nighter, and I Don’t Wanna Grow Up) to one of my followers.
