I have always struggled with hyperpigmentation from my teenage acne days. If only we had something like this back in the day.
This two-step moisturizing facial ampoule + mask provides intensive hydration with a soothing effect to revitalize, while brightening, the skin. Niacinamide and galactomyces, enriched with brightening ingredients, helps to whiten and improve the skin tone. $26.95 for a box of 10 on eBay.

I’ve cleansed and toned my skin, skipping exfoliation to let my skin continue to recover from contact dermatitis. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
[STEP-1] Skin Boosting: The Step 1 ampoule is enriched with hyaluronic acid, meant to effectively moisturizes the skin and provides all-day hydration by improving moisture content and strengthening the skin barrier. This ampoule helps prepare the skin to receive the maximum benefits of the moisturizing sheet mask.
However, my sensitive skin decided that it hates this and unleashed red hot bumps upon contact. I washed it off and my skin went back to normal. User issue on my part since my skin is super fussy.
[STEP-2] Intensive Moisturizing: The intensive moisturizing capability of the natural cellulose sheet mask is due in part to the water that is used to create the serum, sourced from the glaciers of the Alps. This naturally sourced water is overflowing with minerals and amino acids which help maintain optimal moisture balance. This magical water infused with adenosine helps to diminish and prevent appearance of wrinkles and improves the elasticity of skin. What I like most about this is it does not contain paraben, mineral oil and fragrance. The sheet mask gave me the perfect fit and adherence. After 25 mins, there is a thick layer of sticky essence to pat in.
It took me awhile to get my skin feeling semi-dry. There is absolutely no need for a moisturizer. The stickiness subsided gradually but my skin still looks glowy.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
I don’t see any significant whitening effects but I imagine it would do something with constant use over time. I’m quite satisfied with this mask despite the ordeal from step 1. Check out more Leaders reviews here.
