Review: Annie’s Way Tea Tree + Burdock Anti-Acne Mask ★★★★★
Annie’s Way is a Taiwanese brand and this mask is part of their latest Fantasy Land series which consists of 6 other sheet masks with beautiful whimsical packaging. They’re all have the feather light, invisible silk material, just like the ones in the silk mask series with plainer packaging.
Annie’s Way Tea Tree + Burdock Anti-Acne Mask contains Melacuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil to remove remove sebum and clear clogged pores, giving way to a refreshed and radiant skin. It also contains burdock, which has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
My skin is feeling dehydrated and slightly irritated. 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 mild tea tree scent. Essence was clear and runny.
The tencel material felt just like silk. It was light, extremely thin, and extremely soft. It came with a thick perforated plastic backing to hold its shape and also to aid in the application. Place the sheet mask on your face, then peel off the backing from the outside. This prevents the mask from curling up and sticking onto itself, which is a disaster because it is almost impossible to unfold that mess.
However, I noticed something that did not happen with the previous silk masks. As I removed the plastic backing, fibers seemed to get caught with it so I was unable to remove it smoothly at one go. Perhaps this is something the company needs to improve.
Fit was great! Mainly due to the softness of the material, I was able to easily manipulate it to fit my face. My only complaint how small the mouth hole was. It was literally a slit. Granted, I could push it up to make space for my mouth, but still, it felt constrained and uncomfortable.
Adherence was also great! Again, it’s thanks to the softness of the material. Once the material touched my skin, it clung for its dear life and refused to budge.
I had this on for 30 mins, it was still surprisingly damp. There was a slight cooling sensation throughout, giving my flushed skin much needed relief on this rather sunny day.
I was so amazed at how my skin looked!
Redness was completely gone.
Skin looked radiant and bright.
PIE and PIH were faded.
Skin texture looked smooth with blurred pores.
My skin also felt baby soft and very hydrated. Finish was matte and non-tacky so there wasn’t any moisturization. But a light layer of gel moisturizer was enough to replenish the moisture.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
This is yet another winning Annie’s Way mask! Whenever I’m not sure which mask to use, I’ll always reach for Annie’s Way because their sheet masks rarely let me down. I highly recommend this mask for all skin types. Check out more Annie’s Way reviews here.
