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.
Out of the packet, I caught a faint sweet-smelling scent. Essence was clear and runny. The 100% silk sheet felt soft and super thin. It wasn’t as soft as Annie’s Way’s silk sheets but they were pretty close. It came with a perforated plastic backing and was dripping wet with essence.
Fit was great! The sheet came in a multitude of deep cuts, which greatly aided in adjusting to get the best fit. The sheet was also large enough to cover my entire face .
Adherence was great thanks to the soft and thin sheet. There were no air bubbles introduced under the sheet and lifts were kept to a minimum.
Throughout the entire masking process, essence was continually dripping onto my shirt. Soon, the material around my forehead starting to show signs of drying way before the rest of the sheet. Hence, I poured the excess essence from the packet onto my forehead to re-wet the area.
I took the mask off after 30 mins, it was still slightly damp.
The remaining essence patted in with ease. Finish was immediately non-tacky and looked matte.
My skin felt moderately hydrated but not moisturized. The surface was dry. As such, this makes a good mask for people with oily skin. Combo and dry skin types can use this like a toner mask, prior to subsequent skincare steps like serum and moisturizer.
The greatest improvement I saw was the plumpness of my skin. Pores were visibly blurred out and fine lines were less obvious.
My skin also looked pretty calm with trace amounts of redness. My skin tone looked even and bright.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
Considering how affordable this mask is, I’d say it makes a pretty good daily mask. But compared to most affordable masks I’ve tried, it still has room for improvement. Check out more AM Piggyhead reviews here.
