Do you suffer from the occasional breakout or lone zit? Breakouts have a knack for happening at the worst time, and driving out self-awareness sky-high.
Some try to treat their skin to a clarifying mask, that targets the problem-spots and treats them. It's difficult to ascertain which products are awesome and which don't quite do the job, especially when brands invest so much in advertising. Would you trust an ad you saw on TV? A promising-looking label? Or perhaps, gather experience and recommendations from people you know?
Buzzrake is here to separate the fake from the real and make sense of the market. We collected thousands of opinions about facial masks from all over the web, and analyzed them to find out what people really think about them. We focused on acne-treating masks that advertise themselves as such, and uncovered user opinions about them: do they actually get the job done, and how well?
We've given each product a score based on how well users find them to work. If the brand claims that it's good for acne but users found otherwise, it got a low score - and vice versa. We found some interesting user-based insights about these products as well:
- Ingredient quality: users feel that, on average, acne-treating masks have high-quality ingredients. When compared to all other masks on the market, including those that don't treat breakouts, these masks get higher average scores for quality.
- Price: the highest-ranked products for treating acne are priced around the middle of the price range for face masks: $18-$32 on average.
- Value: despite having higher prices than most masks, users feel that these zit-zappers are worth every penny. On average, these masks have high dollar/ounce ratios (at least $6/ounce) and come in relatively small packages; but users feel like their price is just right.
