Packet containing facial mask by Cala Products.
I’m continuing a series of home treatments using different products from the 99 cents & up stores in my part of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Today I tried a facial mask made by Cala Products. The label describes it as containing Cucumber Extract and being good for all skin types. It also claims to relax the skin. My skin is showing signs of stress from the cold weather and the many matters I have to attend to right now. My eyes are very puffy, too.
I have repeatedly heard that putting two cucumber slices on my eyes would bring the puffiness down. But I’m a little reluctant to use a food product on my skin since it is very sensitive. I once tried a homemade mask made with egg whites and honey as a teenager. My skin was very oily at that time. The mask did tighten my pores but also irritated my skin. I do not want to have any problems with my eyes so I’ll skip experimenting with cucumber slices. I went shopping for an eye mask but could not find such a product. When I saw a Cucumber Extract facial mask I thought it might be good to try since I want to find a product that will give my skin a boost, a kind of substitute for a mini-facial.
