23 Years Old Cocoon Gold Silky Mask claims to tone skin and deliver an ultra-fresh sensation by instantly quenching dry and dehydrated skin. It contains silk and gardenia extract to improve damaged skin and provide skin vitality.
This mask came at the perfect time because my skin is feeling dry and congested with a couple of underlying pimples. I’ve cleansed, exfoliated, and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, I caught a faint peppermint scent. The cocoon material felt very soft, very delicate, and very thin, almost silk-like. It did not come with a backing so if you’re not very skilled at applying sheet masks, this might come as a challenge.
Essence was clear and had a watery-gel consistency. It was dripping off the sheet during application.
Fit was great! The holes were large enough and were lined up with my features. Apart from my huge forehead, the sheet was large enough to cover the rest of my face entirely. It was also really manipulate the material for fit, thanks to the softness of the sheet.
Adherence was great! It clung on to my skin the moment it touched it. There were no air bubbles or lifting.
I took the mask off after 30 mins, it was still damp.
There was lots of essence left to pat in. Finish was slightly tacky and looked silky.
My skin felt very hydrated, soft, and plump without an icky film on top. It felt like I’ve just patted in 7 layers of hydrating toner. My combo skin could get away without a moisturizer when this sheet mask was used in the day. For the night time, a moisturizer is required.
Skin tone looked even and redness was completely gone, giving way to a subtle healthy glow.
However, I notice the hydration slowly slipping away throughout the day. My skin got drier and drier and I misted more than usual. Towards the end of the day, I found myself reaching for a hydrating serum and moisturizer to get rid of the stretchy sensation.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
This is an amazing sheet mask when used correctly. The next time I use this, I’ll make sure to top it off with a hydrating serum and moisturizer from the start. It’s skin calming and brightening effects are awesome though. Check out more 23 Years Old reviews here.
