Review: A’Pieu Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Mask – Strawberry ★★★☆☆
A’Pieu Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Mask Strawberry claims to hydrate and strengthen skin barrier with yogurt extract, lactobacillus ferment filtrate, and strawberry fruit extract.
Yogurt extract – contains Vitamin B2 and proteins to strengthen skin barrier
Lactobacillus ferment filtrate – aids the absorption of ingredients and nourishes skin
Strawberry fruit extract – contains fruit acids and is a form of natural alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that provides mild chemical exfoliation, full of antioxidants and Vitamin C to brighten skin
This variant is one out of five sheet masks in A’pieu’s Real Big Yogurt One Bottle line. Every mask features a different fruit and serves a different function. Here’s the breakdown:
Blue (Plain): Moisturization
Red (Strawberry): Hydrating
Green (Apple): Smoothing
Purple (Blueberry): Balancing
Yellow (Mango): Brightening
I’m not a fan of consuming yogurt, the texture and flavor just tastes like vomit to me. I’ve had an irrational fear of foods with such textures since I can remember. That’s why I was never fed mushy baby food when I was little, it’ll just induce vomiting for me. But as a skincare fanatic, I’ll gladly put stuff on my face that I don’t even eat, like bee venom and sea cucumber.
My skin is feeling a very dry today from a session of physical exfoliation. I’m also sporting some red marks and irritation spots from picking at the white heads that have surfaced overnight. I’ve cleansed, exfoliated, and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, there was a delicious sweet scent that reminded me of strawberry candy. The L-cell (I’m guessing it’s lyocell) material felt soft, light, and thin. Just a tad firmer than silk masks. It came with a perforated plastic backing, which was necessary to hold it’s limp shape and aid in application.
Essence had a watery-gel consistency but wasn’t dripping off the sheet. Even though there was only 21 g of essence in total, there was still a ton of essence left in the packet after removing the sheet mask. I used it to re-wet the sheet mask halfway through masking and also slather it all over my neck and chest.
Fit was almost great! The softness of the material made it really easy to manipulate and get a good fit. All the holes lined up with my features but it was just a tad too small on my face. It was only covering the inner perimeter of my face. I’d like to think that I have a medium-sized face so that means people with larger faces might find this insufficient.
Adherence was almost great as well! The sheet mask was clinging onto my face throughout the entire masking process but I could tell that the fold lines were struggling to stay flat. It was lifted in some of the areas.
I took the sheet mask off after 30 mins, it was starting to dry out.
There was lots of essence left to pat in. It absorbed quickly after a few quick pats. Another thing to note was a nice cooling sensation as I was patting. Finish looked silky and felt slightly tacky at first but after 5 mins, it continued to absorb and dry down to a matte-looking and non-tacky finish.
My skin felt hydrated and plump, like it has drank 8 glasses of water. It definitely did its job as claimed. There was no moisturization effects but the sheet mask did not claim to do this anyway. I also noticed my skin looking less red and feeling calmer. There were no other visual improvements aside from the reduction in redness.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
The results were very average on my skin but I have to admit that this is a very affordable mask that’s suitable for daily masking. Oily skin types will enjoy this more due to the light finish. I’m still down to try the other variants and hope I’ll like them better than this. Check out more A’pieu reviews here.
