Review: Polatam Water Gel Extra Force Brightening Sheet Mask ★★★☆☆
Polatam Water Gel Extra Force Brightening Sheet Mask contains oak tree sap essence to brighten and soften dull skin. Oak tree sap contains large amounts of natural minerals and niacinamide to nourish and restore skin skin radiance. The addition of skin-brightening Licorice extract helps to fight hyperpigmentation, while Olive Leaf extracts and Ceramides help the skin to get glowing.
My skin is feeling dry and slightly irritated. I’m also experiencing some dullness from spending a fun-filled weekend under the sun. I’ve cleansed, exfoliated, and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Made of cupro fiber, the sheet mask had a medium thinness and felt plush and soft. It did not come with a backing. I thought it resembled a bandage gauze. The essence had a thick watery-gel consistency. It was giving off a strong cologne scent.
Fit was great! It was large enough to cover my entire face with some excess on the sides. The holes were also perfectly lined up with my features.
Adherence was great! There were no air bubbles and it stayed put throughout. I took the mask off after 30 minutes, it was still very damp.
There was a lot of essence left to pat in. It took awhile to get it to absorb and dry down. Finish was tacky and looked dewy. There was a hydrating film sitting on top of my skin, which makes this perfect for dry skin or colder nights.
My skin felt extremely hydrated. I also noticed slight brightening and calming effects. The hydration quickly disappeared halfway through the day. I attribute this to my dehydration-prone skin. If you have the same issue, please apply a moisturizer post-masking to seal the hydration in.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
This is a pretty average mask. The high amount of hydration I received could be easily achieved with other hydrating products in my routine. It will also take a shorter time and less hassle. This is also a pretty pricey mask considering how average it is. I won’t be repurchasing. Check out more Polatam reviews here.
