I have been waiting in excitement to receive my Green Tea Mask Stick, made by Green Hills, thanks to @PrismPop Tester Club
! I have so enjoyed seeing other PrismPoppers reviews for this mask, and, finally, a few days ago I received mine in the mail. Yesterday, I tried this TikTok-trending mask, so let’s get into this review, shall we?
🤔What’s the Tea on this Green Tea Mask Stick?
The green tea mask stick went viral on TikTok with millions of views on posts sponsored by one of the brands of this mask. This is where my first problem or downvote comes from. There is no clear manufacturer of this mask stick. The mask I received is made by Green Hills, but the TikTok trend came primarily from a brand, Meidian.
🧐Who is Green Hills?
Well, interestingly enough, Green Hills is based out of Delaware, which doesn’t necessarily mean they are physically based out of Delaware. I have heard of quite a few overseas companies who for tax purposes, base themselves out of Delaware on-paper. They have four products, all skincare related, listed on their website and this mask is one of those four.
🧐🤔Let’s get to the facts…
Green Hills Green Tea Mask Stick
Size: 40 grams or 1.35 ounces
💲Price: $9.99 on Amazon, $13.99 on their website
🇺🇸Designed in US, Made in China🇨🇳
I included a picture with ingredients listed on the side of the box. I assumed I would see clay and tea extract listed, which both are. But I was surprised to see a green pigment listed, Chromium Oxide Green. That leads me to believe while there is tea extract in this product, there may not be Green Tea. But perhaps it wasn’t green enough so they just added the pigment additionally? I’ve never heard of that happening in masks before though.
Furthermore, their website states that this product contains: aloe leaf juice, jojoba oil, Hyaluronic acid. Nowhere on the box itself is this stated. A misrepresentation of ingredients leads me to feel untrusting from the start, but the proof is in the pudding as they say…
Let’s try it on!
It was definitely fun to roll the product onto my skin, but the application of the product was not even at all and quite patchy. I could not reach small areas by my nose so I used a mask brush to try to apply it in tight corners. Unfortunately, the product had a hard time getting onto my brush, which led to even more patchiness. I left it on for 15 minutes and washed off in the shower.
The thinness of the clay made for less dryness to my skin after washing off. I was also able to wash the mask off in five to ten seconds, whereas normally, my masks take a minute or so to rinse off. My skin did feel clean, but I didn’t notice much change other than that afterwards. Though, it was fun to use.
My Rating: ⭐️⭐️ out of ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Yes, this mask is technically less than $10, so it is a cheaper option. And for people with dry skin or young teens, this might be a great starter clay mask. However, it would not be one I would grab for in my bathroom cabinet. I would rather save the $10 and use it toward buying a Green Tea mask that actually has all ingredients listed or a clay mask that feels like it’s doing a more effective job at pulling impurities out of my skin.
Furthermore, receiving a coupon in the mail for an offer of a $10 gift card to Amazon if I give them a five-star review, leads me to believe that many of the rave reviews are as real as the green tea featured in the mask.
Thanks for reading everyone! I always appreciate it.
⁉️⁉️So, PrismPoppers, what’s the tea? What have you heard about this mask? If you tried it, did you love it, like it, dislike it? What are your favorite masks? ⁉️⁉️
Until next time…. I hope you’re all happy and healthy!🥰
