Review: A. By Bom Ultra Royal Glow Queen Mask ★★★★☆
A. By Bom Ultra Royal Glow Queen Mask aims to fully hydrate, firm, and energize the skin and give it that glow as if covered in golden honey. It is the brand’s latest Summer offering to it’s current lineup of amazing sheet masks.
Royal jelly extract adjusts water-oil balance for deep hydration nourishment and delivers exceptional anti-aging benefits to the skin.
Manuka honey also known as “liquid gold,” has amazing anti-inflammatory and skin strengthening properties that helps to soothe and heal the skin and retain moisture without making skin oily.
Moringa is a rich source of many nutrients such as Vitamin A, B, C,D and E to rejuvenate and add vitality to the skin.
Green propolis has great purifying and soothing properties for the skin.
My skin is feeling dehydrated and looking slightly flushed. 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 moderately strong floral honey scent. The golden brown essence had a gel consistency. There was little to no essence left in the packet after removing the sheet mask.
Tinted brown from the essence, the ‘Trans Tencel’ sheet had a medium thinness but felt soft, smooth, and plush. This sheet mask felt the softest and smoothest amongst all the other A. By Bom masks I’ve tried. It is made of natural tissue that breathes and wraps around the skin in a perfect fit, allowing nutritious substances to be rapidly absorbed. Unlike most sheet masks, the backing was only half in size! Instead of coming in the shape of the sheet mask, this one came in a semi-circle shape. This is genius because it performed its function of holding up the sheet mask and aid in the unfolding of it, it also required less resources. More brands should be doing this!
Fit was great! The sheet was large enough to cover my entire face with some excess on the sides. However, I found the eye and mouth holes a little too small and were causing discomfort to my eyelids and lips.
Adherence was great! The sheet clung on well with minor air bubbles and lifts.
I took the mask off after 35 mins, it was still very damp. I think I could go on for another 35 mins but decided not to.
There was lots of essence left to massage and pat into the skin. It absorbed and dried down with ease, leaving behind a non-tacky, non-greasy feel. My skin had a healthy sheen but did not look dewy.
My skin felt more hydrated than it was moisturized, like I’ve applied a layer of gel moisturizer. This balanced finish was perfect on my combo skin. There was no need for a moisturizer in the day, but at night, it’s best to follow up with a cream or gel.
The greatest improvement I saw was to the texture of my skin. My skin was very plump and smooth. Fine lines were diminished and pores looked smaller. My skin also felt bouncy and firm. Overall, my skin felt supple and full of elasticity, like a juicy peach!
However, the calming and brightening effects were not as apparent, as shown in the picture below.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
Despite the lack of calming and brightening effects, I’d still choose to use this mask again for the perfect finish it gave me. The next time I use this mask, I’ll make sure to layer on a calming toner and serum underneath to combat my redness and sensitivity. Again, I’m impressed with A. by Bom’s latest offering and can’t wait to try out their next mask! Check out more A. by Bom reviews here.
