Keep Cool and Soothe Mask features a soothing blend of amino acids and antioxidants to calm irritation and redness in the skin. This high quality sheet mask actually has an ingredient called the “Cool Keeper,” a unique complex of traditional Asian plant extracts that actually cools down your skin’s temperature. Natural moisturizing factors (NMF) like betaine, panthenol, ceramide, and hyaluronic acid draw moisture to the top levels of skin, plumping it up, supporting the functioning of the outer layer of the skin, and boosting elasticity.
Bamboo Extract – a rich source of silica, an essential nutrient for us that keeps the skin and hair healthy. It’s anti-irritating, so products with bamboo extract will soothe the skin, improving skin’s radiance.
Pine Extract – a natural anti-inflammatory agent, it also hydrates and reduces pigmentation.
Licorice Extract – evens out skin tone and contains glabridin, which is a potent antioxidant and skin-soothing ingredient.
My skin is feeling sensitive and even more prone to dehydration due to the colder temperatures. 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 botanical scent. It was refreshing and mild. Essence was clear and had a runny-gel consistency.
The sheet mask material was soft and thin, almost silk-like. It came with a perforated plastic backing.
Thanks to the thin and soft material, fit and adherence were perfect!
I removed the mask after 30 mins, it was still slightly damp.
The remaining essence absorbed with ease. Finish was non-tacky and looked only a tad dewy.
Hydration and moisturization was just nice, not too little, not too much. My preferred levels are 75% hydration and 25% moisturization. A cream was required on my combo skin in the winter.
The greatest improvement was to the temperature of my skin. I could feel the irritation subsiding a little due to the mild cooling sensation post-masking. My skin did not look as relieved as it felt, it was still slightly red.
There was also an increased brightness to my skin tone, albeit temporarily. There wasn’t a drastic improvement to my skin texture and plumpness, the effects were just satisfactory.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
This was a really special mask and it did what it claimed to do. It is definitely more of a summer mask but it is a great one for irritated skin in cold weather.
