Do try a patch test on hand before applying egg white face mask. to avoid any allergy. Skin becomes tight and that is why it gets red for few minutes.

My face was itching while I had the mask on, really uncomfortable. I left it on for 15 min. After removing my face has brocken out with red blotches all over. My suggestion is, test on a small part of your face first, because you may be allergic.
