Review: 23 Years Old Cocoon Willow Silky Mask ★★★★☆
23 Year Old’s Cocoon willow silky mask freshens, tones, and quench dry, dehydrated skin with a cocktail of multi silky protein to energize and awaken skin. The mask pack come with an outer cardboard packaging which I personally feel is redundant and very environmentally-unfriendly.
This mouthless mask contains unique nourishing ingredients such as silk cocoon extract, silk extract and lactobacillus that have great illuminating and moisturizing effects.
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 detected a highly fragranced scent. The soft cocoon willow sheet felt very thick and heavy and came drenched in slimey essence.
Playing around with the essence, its viscosity reminded me of CosRx Snail Essence. There were lots of essence left in the packet, enough for another session of masking.
Fit and adherence were great despite how thick the material was, I wasn’t expecting it to cling on so well. Not having my mouth out in the open felt extremely weird. I am definitely not used to the silent treatment (geddit?). However, I do appreciate that this sheet aims to condition the lips as well. I personally prefer a lip balm for my lips.
There was enough material to go halfway down my neck. I’m happy to extend the skincare benefits of this mask down to my neck too, for it is a highly neglected area. I had this on for an hour, it was still very damp and clingy. However, the strong fragrance did make the experience pretty unpleasant for me. I couldn’t wait for it to end.
The remaining essence absorbed fast and left a tacky finish at first but dried down matte in a 30 mins. My skin felt hydrated and looked very bright and even. There was still some redness especially on my forehead. Any fine lines I had were plumped up so my skin texture looked super smooth.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
Despite the amazing effects, this is still a pretty pricey mask. I wouldn’t repurchase as there are other more affordable masks out there that are able to give the same effects. Check out more 23 Years Old reviews here.
