Review: Papa Recipe Bombee Honey Mask

Soaked with rich honey essence and propolis extract, this honey mask attracts moisture to your face like bees to honey, and ensures your skin looks fresher and younger-looking. Apply mask on cleansed face for 20-30 minutes and gently pat in any remaining essence.


After hearing a variety of great reviews, comparing prices, and acknowledging how much my skin loves honey, I decided to try Papa Recipe’s Bombee Honey Mask (I purchased 10 for $19). Though I was worried that the Grapefruit extract would irritate my skin, I found the mask thick and relaxing, its moisturizing benefits immediately recognizable. The wait time of 20-30 min may seem long, but I found it worthwhile and enjoyable. Once I lifted the mask from my face, it only took ten or so seconds for the rest of the essence to soak into my skin. Finally . . . yes this mask has fragrance, but considering it’s the last ingredient (and unfortunately directly proceeded by the honey and propolis the mask boasts so much of), and that the mask smells HEAVENLY — I’m giving it a pass.
