Before masking

My skin is feeling normal to oily, sebum production wise. It’s redder than usual and also sporting a few red bumps. They look like impending deep cystic acne. I’ve cleansed and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.

It felt very strange to pull out a dry mask from the packet since I’m so used to a drippy wet sheet of fabric. This dryness felt liberating! The sheet mask felt kinda thick yet soft and plush. It was plain white on one side with pastel yellow hexagonal shapes on the other. The side with the yellow hexagonal shapes is meant to go on the skin. The sheet wasn’t giving off any scent but upon sticking my nose closer to it, I caught a trace of latex scent.

During masking

Upon wearing the mask, I gently massaged it into my skin for half a minute per the instructions.

Due to it being there, there’s nothing to hold it in place hence ear loops are required. On my face shape, the sheet was of the right size both length and width wise. The material was very stretchy and easy to wear. There were even tiny perforations on the forehead to allow the fabric to stretch some more. However, that created a huge tent around the nose area, hence my nose wasn’t touching any fabric.

The sheet stayed put throughout the entire masking process thanks to the ear loops. They were also soft and stretchy enough not to hurt my ears.

I removed the mask after 15 mins.

After masking

Immediately, I notice a sheen on my skin. Upon touching it, I realized it was a thin layer of greasy balm. My skin very intensely moisturized but not hydrated. As someone with dehydration-prone combo skin, my skin needs more water than oil. Since they greasy balm was so thin, I was able to pat in a couple layers of toner to try to hydrate my skin through it. My skin did look a tad less red but there wasn’t any brightening effects. My skin looked radiant but it was the dewiness from the greasy finish.

I tried it a second time after layering more toners and a runny anti-redness serum underneath. The mild greasy balm finish felt more comfortable as a topper to seal in all that hydration.

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

In my opinion, this is more suitable for dry skin types as they require more oil than water. Dry and combo skin types can still use it at night after patting in all the watery layers.
