Lovemore Herba Saussurea Involucrata Revival Mask Sheet

Review: Lovemore Herba Saussurea Involucrata Revival Mask Sheet ★★★★★

Part of Lovemore’s oriental herbs series, this Herba Saussurea Involucrata Revival Mask Sheet contains the combination of a powerful herb, Herba Saussurea, with white tea, peony, pearl, and ginkgo to leave skin supple, nourished, and radiant. Formulated with deep ocean water found off the coast of Southern Taiwan it also contains essential minerals including magnesium (Mg), calcium (Ca) and potassium (K).

Key ingredients:

  • Gingko – controls oil, fights acne, and balances the skin
  • Herba Saussurea aka Snow Lotus Extract – invigorates skin by promoting blood and nutrient flow
  • Pearl – produces brightening and calming effects on the skin
  • Peony – brightens dull complexions
  • White Tea – possesses incredibly potent antioxidant to slow down the skin aging process

This mask contains DMD hydantoin as a preservative and antimicrobial agent. It increases the shelf-life of cosmetics (e.g. shampoos, skincare products, hair gels, etc) by “releasing” formaldehyde and thus killing bacteria. This keeps cosmetics sanitary, and prevents illness due to infections. DMDM hydantoin’s hazard level is listed at moderate/high. I’ve not come across anyone who has had issues with this ingredient aside from myself. At that time when it turned my skin red hot, I was also suffering from a bout of eczema and dermatitis. Now that my skin has returned to a healthy state, it no longer exhibit any negative aide effects.

My skin is feeling normal to oily as the days get hotter. I’m also sporting a couple of whiteheads on my chin and forehead. I’ve cleansed, exfoliated, and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.

Upon opening the packet, I detected a faint clove scent. Not the oriental herbal scent I was expecting. Essence was clear and runny.

The 100% natural silk material contains 18 kinds of amino acids, and is gentle and non-irritable. It was so light and thin that it had to come sandwiched between a perforated plastic backing and a thick fabric backing. The trick to applying such a hard-to-handle material is to remove the plastic backing, then place the mask side on the face, then peel off the fabric backing from the outside. The fabric backing helped the mask to retain its shape without flopping around too much during application.

Fit and adherence were great, largely thanks to the thinness and softness of the silk material. The sheet was also so large that it touched my top hairline, had excess on the sides, as well as completely cupped my chin. However, the mouth hole was just a slit and I found that really small and uncomfortable as the essence tended to drip into my mouth.

I had the mask on for 30 mins, it was starting to show white patches and dry out.

The leftover essence patted in with ease. Finish was non-tacky and looked matte.

I was taken aback as soon as I removed the mask. The visual results were stunning! Redness was completely gone, skin tone looked even, bright and plump thus pores were also looking smaller. My skin felt deeply hydrated but not moisturized. A moisturizer is definitely required no matter your skin type. My skin also felt baby soft and smooth to the touch, I couldn’t stop feeling my skin!

Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.

This is one of those masks that I refer to whenever I say “more affordable with better results” in past reviews. It is highly value for money and the results were out of this world! I highly highly recommend this to everyone from beginners to professional maskers alike! Check out more Lovemore reviews here.
