Sexylook 24K Gold Hydrogel Mask is one of the brand’s new releases, along with 2 other hydrogel masks with brightening and hydrating functions. This particular variant claims to provide anti-aging benefits with hyaluronic acid and 24k gold. Its whooping 32g of essence is alcohol and paraben-free.
I have been very impressed with all the Sexylook masks I’ve tried thus far, but none made it into my Top Picks. Looks like this is the first!
My skin is feeling a tad dry today, not too bad. I’ve cleansed, exfoliated, and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
The gold hydrogel mask came out in 1 piece, it felt thicker than most hydrogel masks I’ve tried. It was sandwiched between a thick plastic backing and a thick fabric backing. Essence was runny and in abundance, so I slathered as much as I could all over my skin before applying the mask. It was giving off a subtle floral fragrance, something my sensitive nose can handle.
Note that the hydrogel has 2 different sides. One is has a darker shade of gold and less smooth, this is the side with the fabric backing and will be facing outwards. The other side has a lighter shade of gold and smoother texture. This side will be touching the skin.
Fit was average. My largest complain was the tiny mouth hole, it was basically just a slit. Also, the outer perimeters of my face was uncovered and the material wasn’t long enough to cup my chin. This mask was made for someone with a tiny face!
Adherence was average too, surprising for a hydrogel mask. But the thickness of this mask made it a challenge to cling on to curves. It stayed put where areas were flat, like my forehead and outer cheeks.
I took the mask off after 30 mins, it was completely dry to the touch on the outside.
There was little to no essence left to pat in. Finish was silky and non-tacky. My skin felt supple and bouncy, I couldn’t stop touching it! Brightening effects may be slight but it did calm down my redness and evened out my skin tone. Skin texture also looked smooth, with smaller pores. My dehydrated skin type required a moisturizer to seal this in to prevent it from losing moisture. But I think oily skin types can get away without one.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
This mask gave me normal, even toned, and healthy skin. I’m loving it! What wowed me the most about this mask was the long-lasting effects. Most masks gave me temporary effects for a little under 15 hours. But this one lasted and lasted, I woke up with such baby soft skin! Please do your skin a favor and get this asap.
