MISSHA Home Aesthetic Paraffin Treatment Foot Mask Review
Everyone is hoping for a Christmas miracle, but last year I had a huge Christmas disappointment. I picked up these Missha Home Aesthetic Paraffin Treatment Foot Masks, available on eBay and Amazon, hoping to pamper myself during the busy holiday season. I imagined sitting on the couch, sipping tea, and feeling the warmth of the masks on my feet. Aaaah! What a perfect evening!
The masks promised to treat hard, rough skin, filling it with moisture and nourishment.
How to use:
Insert clean, dry feet into the plastic mask “socks”
Use the included sticky tabs to secure the socks in place
Relax for 15-20 minutes
Remove and pat in the remaining essence
Me, full of hope, during the first attempt:
YIKES! I had three of these masks. I used all three, against my better judgement. Hope dies last, after all… There was no warmth at all. Nada. Zilch. Nothing. What’s worse - after removal there’s a very uncomfortable, cold, tingling feeling that just doesn’t go away. I even washed my feet and still had that feeling. It’s very unpleasant. I contacted the manufacturer and they assured me that I must have gotten defective product (what, all three packs were defective? Doubt it). Upon closer inspection, I see no warming ingredients. Ginger extract could potentially warm the skin by increasing the blood flow to the area, but it’s not the type of “paraffin warmth” I was hoping for. For me, this was a big fat fail. I’m so glad I did not buy any to gift people, I would have probably lost friends. If you'd like to read about my must haves, click here. For more fails, click here.
