This mask claims to brighten and dewrinkle with seabuckthorn fruit extract, niacinamide, stabilized vitamin c/ascorbic acid, citric acid, and ferulic acid. The pure ascorbic acid is supplied directly by DSM, the only western vitamin C manufacturer that offer the world’s premium range of pure Vitamin C forms.
Just looking at these ingredients made my sensitive skin tingle. I typically stay away from acids, niacinamide is probably the only brightening agent my skin can tolerate, aside from natural ingredients. So I smeared some essence on my forehead to patch test, alls good! Nevertheless, my tube of cortisol and Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream are on standby! Let’s do this!
My skin is feeling slightly dry and irritated. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
This packaging is pretty unique in the sense that it resembles a giant foil sample pack than a typical sheet mask pack. I’m guessing it’s to keep the inside as dark and cool as possible to preserve the freshness of Vitamin C.
Out of the packet, I detected a fresh lemony scent. It smelt exactly like a real lemon! Essence was gooey and had a light orange tint.
The essence looked golden yellow and was pretty gooey. The thin and soft tencel sheet was tinted orange from the essence. There wasn’t much essence left in the packet.
Fit was okay, mouth hole was a little too small for me, I also folded the sides down as it was a little too wide for me. I was so happy that it extended up to my hairline! Adherence was great! It did tingle slightly around my sensitive nasolabial areas, around 20 mins.
The tencel sheet felt so thin and soft, like silk. I was glad it came with a perforated backing for ease of unfolding.
I had this on for a total of 35 mins, the mask was still plenty damp. After massaging the essence in, my skin felt tacky, but very hydrated and plump. My skin looked very bright and dewy! PIH was lightened and pore size was reduced. No sensitivity, even my redness was reduced!
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
Due to the tackiness and presence of Vitamin C, I’d recommend using this at night. Will repurchase!
