I’ve never used a mask in a syringe/capsule! This is exciting! Though I found it rather inconvenient for storage.
This bio-cellulose mask claims to hydrate and brighten skin with vitamin capsules (Bounsphere NA), vitamin B3 (niacinamide), and biomimetic water (rich in effective ingredients like minerals, peptides, and proteins). It is free of parabens and mineral oil. It also passed tests to detect heavy metals/ microorganisms/ preservatives / formaldehyde / fluorescent whitening agent.
My skin is slightly irritated and dry today. I’m also sporting a couple of PIHs. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
I had fun trying to figure out how to get the mask out. It requires tearing off the outer plastic sheet and unscrewing the sharper cap off. Sadly, it is a non-functional syringe, just a capsule made to look like a syringe. I caught a delicious fresh orange juice scent.
Pulling out the rolled up mask with my thumb and index fingers was pretty effortless. There was no fear of tearing the mask on it’s way out as it’s pretty sturdy and sandwiched between 2 netted backings.
There were lots of watery-gel essence left over, I screwed the cap back on to keep it fresh for later use. Like all bio-cellulose masks, it had a smooth texture and felt like a thin slice of coconut flesh.
Bio-cellulose mask sheets are created through a natural microorganism fermentation process of coconut water which is thus very skin friendly, natural, and soft.
Fit and adherence were great! It was easy to adjust for fit by pushing down excess material due to the nature of the material. I had this on for 45 mins, it was still damp.
Essence took abit of massaging to get it to dry down tacky and dewy. Skin felt extremely hydrated. I did not see any brightening but I did see moderate calming effects and a smoother skin texture. I realized that hydrogels and bio-cellulose masks tend to smoothen my skin texture.
