This is my first time coming across honeysuckle as an ingredient in a sheet mask. Honeysuckle flower extract contains flavonoids, inositol and saponin and is able to restore the oil-water balance in our skin. Together with bitter ginseng, Chinese liquorice, and aloe vera extract, this mask aims to regulate the skin’s oil production, effectively preventing skin outbreaks as a result of pores clogged by excess sebum. In my opinion, L’Herboflore hands down has the prettiest packaging design, albeit a little on the larger side.
My skin is slightly irritated and greasy today due to the heat wave. 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 was pleased to not be able to detect a scent, looks like fragrance was not listed as one of the ingredients. Essence was clear, runny, and in abundance. Made from natural cotton kernals imported from Japan, the silk-like material felt super soft, thin, and luxurious. It came sandwiched in a perforated plastic backing and a thick fabric backing.
My method of putting on such a mask is to the remove the plastic backing first, place mask on face, then peel off the fabric backing on top. This prevents the edges from curling up and sticking onto itself.
Fit was bad at first but due to how pliable the material was, I was able to adjust and push down excess material where necessary. I was surprised that the slit of a mouth hole was able to stay open for my mouth. Stiffer materials would’ve collapsed/closed up immediately. Adherence was also great! I had this on for 20 mins, it was starting to dry out.
Essence absorbed after a few quick pats. This felt nice as it gave me a cooling sensation on this very hot day. My skin felt perfectly hydrated, a hydrating sun screen or moisturizer over this and it felt perfect on my dehydrated skin type. Finish was silky and non-tacky. I also noticed a reduction in my redness and pore size. Skin also looked brighter.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
I am very happy with the results! This definitely delivered its promise of balancing out my skin for my skin is now matte but not flat. I wish this was cheaper or more readily available. Check out more L’Herboflore reviews here.
