|Besame Delightful Rose Mask||
Bésame Delightful Rose Mask, as the name suggests, is a moisturizing facial mask infused with roses and essential oils, a signature of the Bésame skin care line. According to their website, their Rose Mask is a light mask designed to promote youthful, softer skin through a mixture of antioxidants and essential oils, paired with vitamins to promote the skin’s health. Priced at $6.00 per bottle, consumers probably won’t find a facial mask cheaper than this brand, and testimonials rave about its clean, rose scent and the feel of it when applied.
The rise of living costs can force consumers to look for economical choices concerning the care of their skin, and Bésame Delightful Rose Mask appears to contain many of the natural ingredients found in more expensive products for a third of the price. They do not highlight how these ingredients work to fight wrinkles and ragged skin, which could hint at hidden issues with its formula. The Bésame Delightful Rose Mask does have an impressive ingredient list, however, including aloe vera and essential oils — something you won’t find in cheaper facial masks. Some experts question how effective these ingredients work together, and the use of rose extract may not be a good thing.
Consumers interested in a full ingredient list are instructed to contact Bésame. According to their website, the main ingredients contained in its Rose Facial Mask are the following: Botanical Oils, Wild Rose Extract, Vitamins, Aloe Vera, Squalene, Glycerin. There is currently very little documentation about Wild Rose Extract available and there are no studies linking it with any sort of skin benefits. It is more commonly used as a fragrance and may cause skin irritant issues for people with sensitive skin.
Squalene, on the other hand, is a natural moisturizer that penetrates quickly into the skin. Although it does not offer any anti-wrinkle benefits, moisturizing the skin could certainly improve the appearance of skin. This is the only ingredient included that immediately affects the skin – it appears other ingredients were added as additives, in order to add fragrance and feel to the product.
- Contains Squalene, a natural moisturizer.
- Is extremely cheap and easy to purchase; is currently on sale on their website.
- Contains Wild Rose Extract, a fragrance that could irritate sensitive skin.
- Contains no ingredients with any anti-wrinkle benefits, only moisturizers and nutrients.
- Appears to be a clearance item, indicating the product itself could be discontinued.
The Bottom Line
Sometimes going cheap is not the best solution when it comes to your skin, and it appears Bésame is one reason why you might want to pay more for high-end skincare. Bésame does contain appropriate ingredients that effectively moisturize and soothe the skin, but for those looking for immediate anti-aging benefits, Bésame might not provide these solutions.
