Review: Timeless Truth Apple Stem Cell Collagen Bio Cellulose Mask ★★★★.☆
Timeless Truth Apple Stem Cell Collagen Bio Cellulose Mask is an ultimate anti-aging skincare product. Using stem cells extracted from Swiss Apple, Uttwiler Spätlauber, this mask provides all the nutrients to nourish and stimulate the skin.
The apple stem cells have similar properties to human skin cells where it provide all the nutrients to nourish and stimulate the skin. The combination of natural collagen and elastin reduces wrinkles, improve skin’s texture, and elasticity. It contains hydrolyzed elastin, which has smaller molecular structure with collagen to better penetrate the epidermis to improve suppleness and moisture level.
Hydrolyzed elastin has a smaller molecular structure than collagen so can penetrate your skin effectively and leave you with plump, supple skin.
Swiss Apple Stem Cell nourishes and stimulates the skin repairing process to delay signs of aging.
Marine collagen forms a gentle film on your skin to retain natural hydration levels.
My skin is feeling a tad dry and sensitive today, not too bad. I’ve cleansed, exfoliated, and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
The fragrance was so light, it was almost scentless. Essence had a viscous watery-gel consistency.
The bio cellulose material is made up of natural fiber with a diameter of only 20 nanometres (1000 times thinner than human hair), and it able to retain water with 100x its dry weight to remain incredibly moist throughout the entire mask application process. Its superfine physical properties permit the mask to adhere tightly onto the skin surface, allowing the ingredients to penetrate deeply and efficiently into the skin than regular sheet masks for best results.
The biocellulose sheet mask felt thinner and softer than Leader’s 7 Wonders masks. It came in one piece, and sandwiched between a thick fabric backing and a netted backing. I suggest peeling off the thick backing first, then apply onto the skin then peel off the netted backing after. The netted backing is so light that it will not disturb the initial positioning of the sheet mask, hence requiring little to no adjustment afterwards.
Fit and adherence were great! You can expect this with most biocellulose masks. The eye flaps were a bonus as I can choose to relax and mask my eyelids. The presence of multiple cuts all around really helped with getting a good fit.
I took the mask off after 45 mins, it was still very damp.
The remaining essence absorbed with ease, leaving behind a silky finish with a non-tacky feel. My skin felt very hydrated on the inside, the surface was momentarily hydrated but it might eventually lose moisture to the cold environment. So I did apply a thin layer of moisturizer to seal the goodness in. My skin also looked slightly calmer and a shade lighter, notice the obvious demarcation line on my upper forehead. The best thing this mask did to my skin was smoothening out the texture. Fine lines and pores were gone, thus making my skin look like it had a thin layer of translucent powder.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
Due to the higher price point, I would definitely save it for a special occasion. Other than that, I really liked this mask and would highly recommend it to all skin types. Check out more Timeless Truth reviews here.
