I first discovered Goodal from Birchbox, when Charlotte Cho did a collaboration when them. The box included a sample of the Goodal Waterest First Essence. Upon finishing the tiny sample, I fell in love with it. So I’ve been wanting to try more Goodal products ever since but just got distracted from the other random stuff that I discovered and love. I was super excited to see this going at 25% off on Target during Black Friday so I quickly got a box of it. I chose the calming version because I’m still recovering from contact dermatitis.
The flower artwork is so pretty I feel like getting a tattoo of it. This mask contains essence of Myosotis flowers (better known as forget-me-nots) and claims to soothe frazzled skin while a blend of green tea, tea tree oil, and rosemary revitalize and replenish in just a few minutes. Amazon sells this at $20 for a box of 5. This post contains an affiliate link.
As my skin is still recovering from contact dermatitis, it is still sensitive, red and irritated. I’ve just cleansed and toned my skin and skipped exfoliation for the above reason. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking here.
The material is thicker than regular sheet masks and is nicely soaked in clear essence and has a light fragrance which I think smells like a cross between a perfume and a clean scented sheet mask. It unfolds very easily.
It took cutting slits and then lots of effort to smooth out the air bubbles and force it to fit my facial contours. Even then, it doesn’t stick to my skin entirely. I still see air bubbles appearing throughout the entire masking process. That aside, I like how it feels on my skin. There is zero stinging sensation even thought my skin is raw and irritated. I had this on for about 40 minutes.
My skin felt very relieved and nicely hydrated after the mask. There is a thin layer of essence left on my face, which I patted in with ease. While doing so I noticed how smooth and soft my skin feels. I topped it off with a light moisturizer to sealed all the goodness in. Here is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures for comparison.
Obviously, my skin looks dewier, brighter and less red. Even though I am very happy with the end result, I think $4 per mask is a pretty hefty price to pay. I’ve tried other cheaper and better masks with softer material and a better fit. I recommend getting this if you have very sensitive skin and only get it when there is a sale.
