Bella Semplice Rose and Chamomile Facial Masks

There aren’t many face masks that make me feel like this:

Tikiman

Tikiman…

But Bella Semplice masks make everyone look like a Tikiman.  My family sees me coming and RUNS.

Tikiman!

Tikiman!

I don’t care though, because after I use a Bella Semplice mask my skin looks fabulous. The facial masks are wonderful because you apply them in one piece, go about your business for a half hour or more, then peel off the mask to find beautiful skin. You can even leave it on overnight for some amazing results, although that’s a little challenging if you are a side sleeper.  I love that these masks are reusable – after your first use, place the mask back in the package and put it in the refrigerator. Bella Semplice says you can use it twice with the same results, although I was able to get three uses out of mine before the fluid the mask soaks in was gone.

Previously, we reviewed the 24K Gold Facial Mask and Eye Mask.  Here are a few other excellent facial mask options to consider from Bella Semplice:

Rose

Rose Moisture Mineral Mask

The Rose Moisture Mineral Mask ($19.99) is for those who have normal to dry skin. This mask really plumps up your skin and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s a great mask to use before a big date or event. You won’t believe the difference in the way your skin looks – lines and wrinkles seem to have disappeared, skin tone looks even and your face just glows. The ingredients continue to work, regenerating cells and detoxing the skin. Ingredients include rose oil to even skin tone,  pumice stone powder to detoxify the skin, and lemon oil to heal and soothe. The results are so dramatic, I wish they were permanent. I find that my skin looks pretty fantastic for about three days after using this.

Chamomile

Chamomile Soothing Mineral Facial Mask

The Chamomile Soothing Mineral Facial Mask ($19.99) is the mask to choose for those of you with very sensitive skin. It’s terrific at calming down irritated or inflamed skin. It also moisturizes like crazy, as well as detoxifying and plumping up the skin. Chamomile is an excellent anti-inflammatory and it’s also an anti-bacterial that keeps skin clear and healthy.

I think the Bella Semplice masks are a lot of fun and I love what they do for my skin.  If you want immediate, dramatic results, become a Tikiman for 3o minutes!  - Lisa

Bella Semplice masks make you look so “bella”

Take a guess – which Beauty Info Zone beauty is pictured below?  Is it Marcia?  Or is it Lisa?

Ok, so it was a trick question.  Of course it’s Shirley Eaton from the movie Goldfinger.  But both Marcia and Lisa get covered in gold for this review thanks to Bella Semplice – read on for their ‘golden’ experiences!

Bella Semplice 24k Gold Eye Mask

Bella Semplice 24k Gold Facial Mask

Bella Semplice is a company that specializes in masks. They have created several types of eye masks and facial masks as well as some accompanying skin care. There are 5 types of facial masks: 24k Gold Facial Mask for all skin types; Rose Moisture Mineral Facial Mask for normal to dry skin; Chamomile Soothing Mineral Facial Mask for Sensitive Skin; After Sun Rose Mineral Facial Mask for all skin types and Tea Tree Oil Control Mineral Facial Mask for oily/acne prone skin. Each of those masks is $19.99. The two types of eye masks retail for $6.99. Those are the 24k Gold Under Eye Mask and the Lotus Collagen Under Eye Mask; both of these are for all skin types.

Lisa and Marcia went for the gold when they were offered a mask to try. And we both wanted our favorite type of product: Lisa loves her skin care and Marcia loves anything to do with eyes. At the end of our review you’ll see the ingredients and benefit.

Marcia’s side:

Like the intro said I love anything to do with the eyes. My eyes are my favorite facial feature and the way I can bring out what little artistic ability I have. Therefore given a choice I chose to test the 24k Gold Under Eye Mask from Bella Semplice.

This is probably the easiest and most soothing of all the eye masks I’ve tried. It went on so easily and fit perfectly under my eyes. I didn’t get too close to my lash line since there’s a fragrance and I was worried about that affecting my eye. When you look at the individually wrapped package for the eye mask you can see it’s surrounded by fluids. These are what keeps it moist and ready to use any time you want.

These applied so easily and felt so good once on. They are extremely soothing because they are moist with skin care ingredients that help stimulate collagen and cell regeneration. The purpose is two-fold: reduce those fine lines and crow’s feet as well as moisturize the skin around your eyes.

I kept them on for the full 30 minutes suggested and they felt comfortable the entire time. I did things like brush my teeth, take my vitamins and had a piece of toast. They never dried down which would make them pull the sensitive skin around the eyes. Instead they stayed moist making me feel as if they were helping reverse the fine lines.

Wearing 24k Gold Eye Mask

Afterwards my eye area was fuller and looked so much more relaxed. I ‘almost’ didn’t feel the need for concealer under my eyes since the dark circles didn’t seem as prominent. I checked periodically during the day and was very pleased with the rested look. The suggested use is 2-3 times a week but this is something I’d save for weekends when I want to look my best.

Lisa’s side:

I do love skin care, and I want anything that promises to reduce my wrinkles and reverse the signs of aging.  When I opened this up and saw the instructions, I showed it to my husband and said, “Honey, I am wearing this to bed tonight.”

Bella Semplice

He said, “As long as that’s ALL that you are wearing I am fine with it.”

My husband is very, very predictable.

This is a pretty interesting mask because you can use it more than once.  After my first use, I put back in the packaging.  It soaked up more of the liquid product and was ready to go again the next time I wanted to use it.

This mask stimulates collagen production, which plumps your face in a good way.  The collagen reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and gives you a nice glow.  It also helps to even out skin tone and stimulates cell regeneration.

At night after your face is cleansed you just place the mask on, lining it up correctly with your eyes, nose, and mouth.  It sticks to your skin pretty well.  It doesn’t feel tight or uncomfortable, but it definitely stays on and doesn’t fall off easily.  I did laundry, cleaned the kitchen, and even jumped on my rebounder for a while and this mask stayed on well.  My only problem was that the mask is bigger than my face.  I get it – there are lots of people who have larger faces than me.  All I had to do was trim the excess off the chin and side areas and it held even better for me.  Also, hair will stick to it so it’s better if you wear a headband to keep those strands from sticking to the mask.  The mask itself is weirdly rubbery and feels very cool on – after people get over the shock of seeing you looking like this, all they want to do is touch the mask because it feels so neat.

Bond girl? Or scary Halloween costume?? (Check out how cross-eyed I look!)

Bella Semplice recommends that you keep the mask on for at least 30 minutes, longer than that is even better.  They recommend 2 to 5 hours for the best results, and you can sleep in this mask if you want.  I just couldn’t do it – I am a side sleeper and I knew that I would end up smushing it into my pillow.  So instead I put it on in the evening and wore it though my chores, my blogging, my TV watching, then as I read a bit before bed.  When I took it off, my skin looked and felt GREAT.  And the benefits lasted all through the next day.

The recommended usage is two to three times per week for the most benefit.  You may not look so ‘bella’ whilst wearing the mask, but afterwards it’s totally worth it.
