REVEALED: The women and girls as young as 10 left with burns and welts on their faces from ‘unicorn’ sheet masks recalled from Ulta and Target
When Chelsea Anders saw a box of face masks at her local Ulta last month, she thought it would be a great gift from ‘Santa’ to her 10-year-old stepdaughter, Cadence.
On Christmas morning, the little girl pulled it out of her stocking and decided to use the ‘unicorn’ mask.
Within two minutes, she complained to her parents that it was burning. When Anders, 27, ripped the mask off, little Cadence’s face was bright red.
Anders, of Waukee, Iowa, said she washed her stepdaughter’s face for 10 minutes every 20 minutes for three hours – and applied aloe vera – before the redness went away.
Many of the women and girls who used the masks said they were hesitant to take them off even after feeling a burning sensation because of an instruction on the back of the package that said: ‘Tingling? Yes, it’s working!’
Dr Jason Miller, a dermatologist at Schweiger Dermatology Group – which has offices in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania – says the very tingling sensation the product is encouraging should be cause for alarm.
‘That’s your skin’s way of telling you that something is wrong,’ he told DailyMail.com.
