Unlike traditional hydrogel masks, this gel mask combines essence and gel, so the essence is in the gel. Which was why the hydrogel pieces were only lightly coated in essence when I pulled them out of the packet. So technology. Much wow.
This mask claims to nourish and moisturize with ingredients such as beta-glucan (1st + soothe), hyaluronic acid (2nd + hydrate), hydrolyzed collagen (3rd + nourish), and centella asiatica extract (5th + soothe). It got me at beta-glucan being the first ingredient. Having sensitive skin isn’t a walk in the park so I really appreciate it when masks include ingredients like beta-glucan and centella asiatica.
My skin is feeling pretty good today just a few post acne marks that need fading. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, I did not catch any scent. Which is mega bonus for sensitive skin peeps like me. The mask comes in 2 pieces, top and bottom. Not being generously coated in essence made it slightly easier to handle and remove them from their backings. The hydrogel felt thicker than regular hydrogels but it also felt very soft, wobbly, and stretchy.
Fit was 100% though the nose flap was too long for me. Adherence was also 100%, there was no slipping. I was able to make fishy faces without the pieces budging or slipping due to it’s stretchability. I had this on for an hour because I forgot I had a mask on.
There was almost no essence left on my skin. My skin looked amaze-balls! It was hydrated but not sticky, kinda like normal skin, all I needed was sun screen. It also looked less red and very smooth without traces of pores or fine lines. The greatest improvement I noticed was to my skin texture. Brightening action was minimal. Finish was matte and turned silky but the end of the day. For some magical reason even my oil production was curbed.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
This is definitely a very special mask, for special occasions, and at a special price.
