Review: Skinfood Beauty in a Food Mask Sheet (Centella Asiatica) ★★★.☆
Skinfood Beauty in a Food Mask Sheet comes in 19 different variants. I chose this because centella asiatica (gotu kola) is one of my favorite ingredients because of it’s calming and repairing properties! It has calming and repairing properties and is able to clear up troubled skin and reduce redness. Great for oily skin, sensitive skin, and acne-prone skin types.
My skin is feeling pretty good today, just a tad irritated. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, I caught the familiar grassy herbal scent that most centella products come with. It’s an acquired taste (scent) but I love it! Essence was a clear watery gel. The cotton material felt stiff and thick, not my favorite but I’m willing to give it a chance because of the main ingredient.
Fit was great! There was some excess on the sides which I folded down with ease. The sheet was also long enough to cover my entire forehead and also cup my chin. Adherence was disappointing, which was expected of such material. Fold lines refused to stay down, air bubbles resurfaced 5 mins into masking, and the chin piece detached 10 mins into making. I had this on for a mere 20 mins, it was already starting to dry out.
Essence absorbed fairly well and left and matte, slightly tacky finish. The level of hydration was insufficient for my skin type so I layered on a moisturizer. However, I noticed that my redness was completely gone! Which was what this mask promised. I did not notice any other effects.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
This mask did a great job at soothing my redness. But there are more masks out there that are able to not only soothe but also provide a host of other benefits. Considering the price point, it’s still a great mask that’s worth a try. Highly recommended for people with active angry breakouts. Check out more Skinfood reviews here.
