Femmue Flower Infused Fine Mask Review:
On my visit to the Femmue show room I purchased a few things. I mean, natural ingredients, flowers, no animal testing – it all sounds attractive just by writing it, imagine when I tested it on the store. So I walked out with it! But I paid of course.
Anyway, this mask I was told works as a wash off mask, but also as a light sleeping mask. Of course I was intrigued. Do you remember when I wrote that you can also use the Mamonde Calendula sleeping mask as a wash off mask? This mask was actually the inspiration for me trying that! So, I decided to use it many many days in a row and in many many different ways, and I think you should read this. If not for the mask then for the new stuff you might find out!
-Rejuvenating, soothing, revitalizing.
-The purest camellia petals and oil create an intensely lifting and nourishing mask for dehydrated and sensitive skin.

Femmue Flower Infused Fine Mask Review:
One very small detail I’m thankful for in Femmue products is that they put the packaging date and the validity date on both the outside package and the product bottle! I have encountered myself in several situations on which I had to keep the outer box or write the date on the bottle. Or when I’m sorting out my skin care and have to open each and every box because the date is only on the inside!
And look at them being cute. “We put a LOVE in here” – this brand was born out of love for flowers and skin care of higher standards. And they are incredibly nice whenever you talk to them both in store and on Instagram, so I believe they trully love their products and costumers.
The package includes the box (obviously), the product bottle (again, of course), a small protective lid to prevent the product from getting everywhere, and a spatula (not this spatula, but I mixed all my spatulas and couldn’t find the other one – the original spatula is the same as in the Femmue cleansing balm).
So, both in shape, contents and colors (except product color) this package is exactly the same as the cleansing balm. But, especially when the brands have a small choice spectrum, I personally prefer when all products match in design.
Here you can finally see the product. I know the mask didn’t seem attractive at all on the previous photos, that’s because the container is blurry, like those glasses that censor stuff. Well, now you can see it and I can honestly say that knowing that those are flower petals this product is very attractive.
It seems like an unfiltered version of the Mamonde Calendula mask (also with a different flower, but I meant texture wise).
The mask, you can see, is very gel-like (again like the Mamonde one) and is almost transparent. You’ll see later, but that small color on the gel is more of a reflection of the petals than a strong color in the gel itself.
Of course that since the bottle is open now and you can see the flowers, this is the ideal time to talk about the scent. It’s intense but not as much as the Mamonde one. It smells of flowers but you can’t tell right away which one (unless you really know your flowers), I primarily feel camellia but there’s something very fresh about it.
Here you can see my hand before application, during (while wet), during (while dry), and after cleansing.
The mask is very calming and gentle on the skin, and it doesn’t feel like it’s drying on your skin, in fact I basically forget about it if there’s no timer. Afterwards the skin feels very soft and hydrated, but as with most hydrating wash off masks you need to moisturize your skin afterwards or the hydration won’t stick.
But regardless of following skin care it’s a hydrating mask, that softens the skin, and very soothing.
Here I want to talk about it a little further.
Firstly, I have used this mask as a sleeping mask for several days. It’s effective in preventing the skin from dehydrating during the night, very similar to the Mamonde Calendula mask. As a sleeping mask that’s its part – to prevent hydration from being lost.
I have also used it as a wash off mask, of course, as it is the mask’s main role. As a wash off mask I must say it is effective in the soothing and softening of the skin (as I told you before) and is a better wash off mask than the Mamonde Calendula sleeping mask.
Of course the other one is only a sleeping mask (which works also as a soothing wash off mask) but since I mentioned its abilities in the review I wrote I thought I should compare it a little.
If I had to describe it without comparison, the wash off mask is really good, softening and soothing. The sleeping mask part is not as good in these functions, but it locks the hydration in.
Now, for a small extra I find very useful!
As you know by now I prefer the mask as a wash off mask. Regardless, you have to cleanse your face afterwards, right? Since there are petals. They suggest rinsing with a wet tissue or soaked cotton pad. That works, very well. I tried washing it off with water but, as most hydrating masks, it makes it less effective.
So, washing it off with some wet surface or cloth is ideal. But hear me out! The best thing, that enhances the mask’s abilities even more, is using a cotton pad soaked with your best toner. It tones your skin while the pad removes the petals. And that’s okay because this mask doesn’t need to be actually washed off – they really just want you to remove the petals!
Here you can see the before and after on the driest piece of skin I could find. It was washed off with a wet tissue, not with the toner, but you can still see how amazingly well it works as a wash off mask.
Most of my wash off masks are clay masks, but out of the ones that are not this is definitely the best. Not to mention I love the scent, and how practical it is. Lots of times I didn’t use wash off masks because I didn’t want to be bothered cleansing my face a second time, but with this one (especially by using the toner to cleanse) I don’t have to do that, I save time on skin care while actually making it more intense.
It is a little on the expensive spectrum, but it has a lot of nice things (which include no animal testing). So I will keep purchasing products from the brand, and when I finish this whole pot I’ll most likely buy this one again (or a newer version of it if they have it then).
