I received the mango version but I think there are 3 other versions: black tea; green tea; and strawberry. This mask makes me want to rush out for a cuppa bubble tea right now, specifically green tea peach or roasted milk. I’ve always referred to it as bubble tea, never boba tea till I moved to the US. If we go according to how the Taiwanese call it ‘泡泡茶’, then the direct translation is ‘bubble tea’. Not sure how ‘boba’ came about though, can anyone enlighten me?
Anyhoos, this cute af mask claims to moisturize, brighten, and firm with ingredients like hyaluronic acid (4th), mango seed butter (8th), squalane (11th), and collagen (13th).
It’s a pity it’s not available for sale yet, but keep a lookout for these!
My skin is feeling pretty irritated and looking a little red today. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, I caught a sweet mango candy scent, very delicious. Essence felt watery. The mask sheet material felt like a dream. It’s very similar to their silk masks but according to Annie’s Way, it’s actually tencel.
Fit and adherence were great! The thinness and softness of the material helped alot. There were lots of essence left in the packet, enough for another masking session with a compressed pellet mask. I had this on for 40 mins and the edges were starting to dry out ever so slightly. It was still mostly damp with zero air bubbles.
The remaining essence absorbed quickly with minimal patting. The first thing I noticed was how bright was skin looked! So bright that my dark circles became super obvious. Skin looked super smooth and poreless, albeit still slightly red. Finish was matte and not tacky. Hydration was alright but my skin type needs an occlusive layer to seal everything in.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
This is a great one for hot days and oily skin! Find more Annie’s Way reviews here.
