Face masks are designed to give you a quick boost or glow. They're sold in the beauty aisle in many stores. However, a Virginia mom wants buyers to be aware.

Nelle David, 9, put on a unicorn face mask she received over the holidays. Just minutes after she put it on, Nelle says her face was burning and everywhere the mask touched - it turned red.


The mask, was a Yes To Vitamin C glow-boosting unicorn paper mask.

After about 24 hours, the burning and redness went away.

The company, Yes To, pulled the product off the shelves while they investigate the complaints.
