This mask claims to give long-lasting hydration and soothe skin with white willow bark extract. White willow extract is nature’s salicylic acid and it helps to smoothen skin texture and prevent moisture loss. White willow also contains tannin, the pigment found in tea, which has antioxidant effects. The essence used in this mask is so concentrated it’s equivalent to a typical ampoule. The sheet mask material is made of long fiber, which is thin, gives great adhesion, holds moisture, and does not irritate skin.
My skin is experiencing lots of sensitivity 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 scent that’s typical in any HA masks. Essence was clear and watery. The material was soft, thin and very pliable.
Fit was great, a little large on the sides but no biggie. Since the material was so soft and thin, I was able to easily manipulate it to fit the contours of my face. Adherence was great too! At the 35 min mark, the mask was still very damp and clingy.
There were lots of essence to massage in. Finish was tacky and dewy at first but dried down matte after an hour. My skin felt very hydrated and fresh, and looked even and less red. This gave me a healthy look overall. This is definitely a great mask for hot summer nights. To me, the entire experience and effects are identical to the African Baobab Seed variant. In a blindfold test, I wouldn’t be able to tell which is which.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
Notice how much redness has disappeared from my face! Considering the low price point and effects, I’d totally repurchase! Check out more Isntree reviews here.
