Say No to This Recalled Unicorn Face Mask

Popular drugstore cosmetics brand Yes To, Inc. has issued a voluntary recall for one of its face masks. If you purchased the Grapefruit Vitamin C Glow-Boosting Unicorn Paper Masks, don’t use it!

What Happened to Cause the Recall?

Yes To’s Grapefruit Vitamin C Glow-Boosting Unicorn Paper Mask appears to have caused widespread redness and skin irritation in customers who used the product. The company voluntarily recalled all lots of the mask, which was sold at retailers such as Target and Ulta Beauty, and issued an apology.

“We apologize to anyone who was affected in this way, especially over the holiday season,” the statement read.

“While our products are all independently tested for safety, irritation, and allergy – and while we provide both warnings and instructions on our products about the potential for skin irritation – the safety and satisfaction of our customers are our main concerns.”

Social Media Posts Led to Recall

According to Yes To’s official statement via the FDA, the company decided to pull the product after seeing “reports on social media that children have used the Grapefruit Vitamin C Glow-Boosting Unicorn Paper Mask unfortunately in skin irritation. We have also received similar reports from adults who have used the product.”

Those reports included kids who had used the product, which was packed in a pink holographic package with a cartoon mascot wearing a fake unicorn horn. It’s understandable why kids would be tempted to use such a product.
Marla Gooding, who posted the disastrous results of her face mask on Twitter, later told “Allure” that the product began to burn after three minutes. She was left with bright-red, irritated skin, similar to a sunburn. Other users had identical experiences.

What You Should Do Next

If you purchased one of these unicorn paper masks and have not yet opened the package, you can return it to the retailer where you purchased it for a refund.
