Biore Charcoal Self Heating One Minute Mask vs. Well at Walgreens One-Minute Charcoal Face Mask

At 70% similarity, these masks are fairly different, but you may prefer the generic brand to the name brand for smell and texture. We don't recommend either product for a decadent mask experience, but think you will like this for a deep-clean in a hurry.

 The name brand smells like chemicals- yuck.

The name brand smells like chemicals- yuck.

Brandefy compares off brands (e.g., Well at Walgreens) to name brands (e.g., Biore) to show you when the generic is as good as the name brand, and to warn you when it is not. Our purpose is to help you save time and money, and to have a good time while doing it.

Brandefy had a fun girls-only night in which we invited some friends over to help us test masks.  The overall consensus for both the Biore and the Well at Walgreens mask was that, while this is not a relaxing mask experience, they both worked very well in a short amount of time.

We immediately noticed that the Biore smelled like cleaning chemicals.  It was also grainy in texture.  The Well at Walgreens version was smoother, lighter in color, and sweeter smelling.  These differences were subtle, but more pleasing to us.  We saw the same amount of impurities arise from both, and both masks had a nice heating sensation.

While these are only 70% similar, we found the differences to be in favor of the generic on this one, and will be switching to save and have a better smelling mask.
