My skin is feeling slightly dry and very irritated today. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Just like the Atopalm Real Barrier Extreme Cream, it gave off a faint lavender scent due to the presence of lavender oil. Despite containing 30 ml of essence, there was very little left in the packet. This was how much I was able to get out of the packet. The essence had a consistency that I would say was a cross between milky and creamy. It was more of a watered-down version of the matching cream.
The microfiber sheet was unevenly coated in essence and came with a mesh backing to hold its shape. This sheet felt much thinner and much softer than most microfiber sheets I’ve tried. It felt like eggshell membrane. I evened out the distribution of essence by manually spreading it around before applying it to my face.
Thanks to the soft sheet, I have no comments about the fit and adherence except “amazing”! It clung on to my skin for its dear life throughout the 30 mins of wear.
There was lots of essence left to massage in. While doing so, I noticed how hydrated, soft, and supple my skin felt. Albeit still looking slightly red, my skin no longer felt itchy nor irritated. Also, my skin was plumped up enough to make my pores seem smaller, hence a smoother skin texture. There wasn’t any brightening effects but it doesn’t claim to do this. However, due to the dewy finish, my skin looked glowy and radiant.
Just like the Atopalm Real Barrier Extreme Cream, finish was a little tacky with an occlusive layer on top. I kinda like it during these colder months. There was absolutely no need for a moisturizer. But due to this reason, it would be better to apply any serums or essences of your choice prior to using this sheet mask.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
I highly recommend this to dry and sensitive skin types for night use and would definitely repurchase once I’m out! Check out more Atopalm reviews here.
