Trefiel is an Australian company, their masks are made from ingredients that are plant based and GMO free. Which means they are free from harsh and damaging chemicals.
This mask I’m reviewing is their Moisturising variant. It claims to hydrate, give skin a youthful glow, and fill fine lines and wrinkles. It contains trelahose (hydrate), red seaweed (soften), aloe vera extract (soothe), tocopherol (hydrate), hyaluronic acid (hydration), chamomile extract (soothe), and licorice root extract (brighten).
My skin is experiencing some sensitivity and dryness 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 a faint rose scent, which reminded me of Annie’s Way Rose Jelly Masks. It was a very pleasant scent. The beautiful lace hydrogels came in 2 pieces and soaked in 45ml of clear watery essence. The plastic backings made unfolding and application pretty easy. I noticed a textured and smooth side to the hydrogels, make sure the smooth side goes on the skin.
Fit was great, as with most other 2-piece hydrogels. Adherence was okay, the bottom piece will start slipping down if I made any facial expressions. I had this on for 40 mins (during which a gazillion selfies were taken #noshame), the pieces were still damp.
The remaining essence absorbed fast, leaving behind a matte finish. My skin felt moderately hydrated and plump, looked very even, bright and less red. As with most hydrogel masks, my pores were smaller and fine lines plumped. I sealed in the hydration with a moisturizer. If I hadn’t had an acne attack which resulted in a constellation of PIH, I’d totally go out without foundation.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
However, due to the price point, I’d save this for special occasions.
