Review: Ultru I’m Sorry For My Skin S.O.S. Jelly Mask in Soothing ★★★★☆
As the name suggests, this mask claims to be an S.O.S. for stressed out skin. It will soothe, hydrate and relive skin of irritations. It contains alcohol, centella asiatica extract, colloidal gold, broccoli sprout extract, evening primrose flower, agave americana stem extract, and yucca brevifolia root extract.
It also contains AMF (Artificial Moisturizing Factor)—consisting of nano particles that has the ability to slow down moisture evaporation—guarantees 120 hours of moisture maintenance for the skin.
My skin is experiencing some sensitivity and sporting a constellation of acne around my upper cheeks today. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, I detected strong fragrance. Jelly essences are the best, they’re not watery and drippy but not thick and uncomfortable like creamy essences.
Though I wish this came with a backing because being encased in jelly, it was hard to see where the edges meet.
Upon close inspection, I notice the sheet mask dotted with gold specks, how luxurious! The research behind the benefits of gold in skincare is rather ambiguous, nevertheless it’s still very pretty to look at and give a touch of luxury.
Sheet was of medium thickness and covered in yellow jelly essence.
There was a nice minty cool feeling upon wearing this mask. Fit was alright, my top lips was covered and it was a little too wide on the sides. Adherence was meh, air bubbles starting forming 10 mins into wear. At the end of 40 mins, I had a goatee and my forehead was complete detached. Minty cool feeling was still present.
The fit might have been better if there were slits.
There were lots of essence to massage in. Finish was tacky and dewy. There were bits of gold flecks left on my skin. My skin felt very hydrated and looked a little less red. There was also a slight brightening. My pores were alot smaller and my skin looked very smooth.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
As much as I like this, I don’t recommend using this in the day. Due to the tackiness, it’s more of a night time mask. Find more Ultru review here.
