REVIEW: Skin Food Olive Mask! [ SPONSORED ]

Hello again my lovies. I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day! I spent my weekend with my family & then went back down to Louisiana to spend Saturday evening/Sunday morning with my BFF for her birthday. It really was fun!

Today, I'll be reviewing Skin Food's Olive Mask sponsored by Momomango!

The label is made out of this really pretty green paper that is held around the top of the container with a thread rubber band with the information on it. Super cute packaging for  sure. I love the printed olives around the edges of the paper label.

The cap is also printed with the name of the mask. It's a plastic lid that twists off.

A matte tan colored lid. It feels smooth. As you can see, the container is glass. It's quite heavy, too.



A mask pack that is applied thinly and keeps moisture onto the skin to relieve severe dryness, flakiness and puffiness with Spanish Olive Oil.

Spanish Olive Oil : The oil pressed from olives from sunny Mediterranean area is enriched with vitamins and unsaturated fatty acids.

To Use : Apply an ample amount onto the face and massage gently, focusing on area where more dead skin cells have piled up. Rinse with lukewarm water.

Some information about Spanish Olive Oil :

Olive oil is super rich in vitamins & antioxidants with help in the neutralizing of free radicals [ atoms that oxidize & help aging ] which is damaging to your skin. It's high in healthy fats. Olive Oil is a wonderful moisturizer. It improves the elasticity of your skin and prevents dryness.


Carprylic/Carpric Triglyceride, Kaolin, Hydrogenated Coconut Oil, Sucrose, Butrospermum, Parkii ( Shea Butter ), Euphorbia Cerifera ( Cadelilla ) Wax, Sorbitan Laurate, Octyldodedeth-25, Decyltertradeceth-25, Beeswax, peg-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Olea Eurpaea ( Olive ) Fruit Oil, Persea Cratissima ( Avocado ) Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Water, Butylparaben, CI 42090, CI 15985, Parfum.

So along with the Spanish Olive Oil, we have, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, & Macadamia Oil. All wonderful for your skin.

Upon opening the container, there is a protective lid to ensure that there is no mess when storing the product. You can also see how green this mask actually is.

Just a small swatch of the mask onto my hand. It definitely smells really earthy, very much like an olive would. There is no strong perfumes. If you're not into earthy smells, then you probably won't like the smell of this mask.

Upon giving the mask a rub into my skin, I noticed that there were little grains in this mask for exfoliation. I don't think I would just call this a mask. It's more of an exfoliating mask. 

When I use this mask, I like to make sure my skin is clean & dry & apply this mask when I feel my skin needs that extra boost in moisture. I apply it all over my face, lightly exfoliate for 2-3 minutes, then leave for another 10 if the moisture is needed.  I really do like how moisturized my skin was after rinsing this off. I used a brush to apply this mask & I noticed that even with washing, the mask was hard to wash out without more than one washing.

It's super oily, so for those with already oily skin, I do not recommend this product for you.
If you have combo skin like me, I wouldn't leave it on for very long.
If you have dry skin, I HIGHLY recommend buying this mask!

My only issue with this mask was that it made this skin around my nose itch after awhile of leaving it on. It may have been that my nose is a typically dry part of my face, but that was the only spot on my face that did this. 


I enjoy this mask, especially when I haven't washed my face in a day or so & can feel how dry my skin has become. The added exfoliate factor is pretty cool. It's labeled as a mask, but also seems to double as a mask. I just wish this mask wouldn't make my skin itch around my nose. The scent doesn't bother me either, but I don't know what Olives actually smell like without being pickled. :P

If you'd like to try this out :

Along with this mask, there are other mask similar to this one that I would love to try out. They all come in these super cute containers!

I hope you've enjoyed this review.
I hope you have a wonderful day!

  1. Skinfood packaging is always so cute, but this one looks too oily for my skin > < I have combination normal/oily skin, so this probably isn't for me. Thanks for the review Ashley :)

  2. I love that packaging :D And it seems that this mask is really great for super dry skin in winter :D

  3. The mask sounds really good and moisturizing especially for dry skin ^^ I always love your detailed review Ashley! Too bad I'm on the oilier side and can't really use this mask but the packaging is cute typical skinfood ^^

  4. The fact that this has little grains in it is a game changer for me! I might actually try this in the future because of it =) great review Ashley!
