Review: By Wishtrend Hours-Long Moisturizing Gauze Sheet Mask (New Version) ★★★★☆
Note: This review is based on the newer version of the mask. My review of the older version is here.
By Wishtrend Hours-Long Moisturizing Gauze Sheet Mask aims to brighten, hydrate, and maintain the skin’s moisture levels for an extended time. It contains 30g of high concentration essence which includes the key ingredients listed below:
Niacinamide is more commonly known as vitamin B3. It helps to brighten the skin and prevents moisture loss by strengthening the skin’s barrier to maintain healthy skin.
Propanediol is a type of vitamin B5 that is absorbed into the skin to moisturize and soften the skin.
Rosa Centifolia flower water provides nutrients that calm and hydrate the skin to keep the skin clear and lively.
Tocopheryl acetate is a derivative of vitamin E and it helps to nourish nutrient-deficient skin and prevents loss of moisture in the skin to maintain hydration for healthier skin.
Sodium hyaluronate is the sodium salt form of hyaluronic acid, which is known as the leading moisturizer in cosmetics, with its moisture content reaching 6000 times the normal humidity coefficient. It absorbs moisture and provides hydration to dry, rough skin to soothe and moisturize.
Glutathione – When using more than 0.1%, it is known to have antioxidant and whitening effects. When using more than 2.5%, it helps to improve the appearance of wrinkles.
Beta-glucan has excellent moisturizing properties that aid in strengthening the skin’s barrier and maintaining the skin soft and smooth.
The ingredients list looks pretty clean on CosDNS, scoring mostly 1’s with the 11th ingredient (PEG-60 hydrogenated castor oil) scoring a 3. Also, this reformulated version no longer contains hydrolyzed collagen and is officially classified as vegan.

My skin is feeling very dehydrated and tight. It is also flushed and easily sensitized due to hormonal fluctuations. I’ve cleansed and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
This was a 2-piece mask for the top and bottom of the face and had no backings. The material was very intriguing. Made of lanseal, a high functioning fabric that is capable of absorbing a large amount of essence, they felt like thick and rough pieces of jelly. They felt ultra jiggly and bouncy and were thoroughly soaked and covered in gel-like essence. They gave off a light clean fragrance.
Fit was mostly great thanks to the ability to adjust the pieces. The overall size was on the small side and covered the inner perimeter of my face.
Adherence wasn’t that great. The bottom piece was slipping down ever so slightly. The piece below my chin came completely detached by the end of the masking session. Also, due to the rough texture of the material, it was a challenge to smooth out all the air bubbles from underneath the mask.
I removed the mask after 30 mins, it was still very damp. This is one of those rare masks that are able to last ages without drying out. A good one for a napping session or you have time to spare.
There were lots of essence left on my skin. Patting in the essence felt like I was applying a thick layer of gel moisturizer. Finish was tacky at first but dried down to feel more velvety with a semi-dewy look.
My skin felt intensely hydrated and moisturized. A thin layer of gel moisturizer was all that my combo skin required to seal in the goodness. I don’t recommend oily skin to try this out, it might feel too greasy and icky. However, dry skin will really love this. Skin types aside, this is also a good one for the upcoming winter months.
The greatest improvement I saw was to the plumpness of my skin. It was juicy and supple with a chok chok effect. As such, my pores looked a little less visible and fine lines were also less obvious. My skin texture looked very smooth.
There was an obvious brightening effect but it wasn’t intensely so. The redness in my skin was mostly gone but not completely eradicated.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
Having tried both the original and reformulated versions, I definitely like this one better. The original one wasn’t able to maintain moisture levels in my easily dehydrated skin but this one was able to. Though the vegan factor is a small plus to me, I’m glad this mask was reformulated.
