The pumpkin spice season has arrived and with it comes fall. Trader Joe’s joined in on the PSL-inspired fun with their Spice Biocellulose Face Mask and it’s pretty much a Pumpkin Spice Latte for your skin. It also smells amazing. Trader Joe’s has proven itself to be much more than just a place to buy affordable groceries. They also boast an impressive selection of beauty products via an in-house brand, including their popular Rose Facial Oil and Antioxidant Facial Moisturizer. And this fall season, the retailer has really stepped up.
Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Spice Biocellulose Face Mask is packed with ingredients like pumpkin seed extract, turmeric root, shea butter, aloe leaf juice, and more. The scents are a yummy blend of clove flower, cinnamon bark, orange peel, and ginger root oils.
Unlike other masks, it isn’t made from typical sheet mask materials like cotton or plant-based cellulose. Instead, it’s made from biocellulose. According to Trader Joe’s site biocellulse is “a thinner, lab-made compostable material formed from fermented coconut fiber, that can retain up to four times more fluid than its ‘regular’ cellulose counterpart.” This means that the material allows the mask to cling to the contours of your face more securely so that your skin soaks up the most of the pre-loaded serum. Biocellulose is also environmentally friendly and was originally developed to treat burns an wounds, according to BioRepublic. The brand also noted that the mask is not tested on animals!!
