Loverecipe Aloe Mask

Review: Sallysbox Loverecipe Aloe Mask ★★★★☆

I recently received Loverecipe masks in my January Ipsy bag, thought I’ll give the aloe one a try since I’ve never heard of this brand.

water, glycerin, butylene glycol, alcohol, peg/ppg-17/6 copolymer, citrus paradisi (grapefruit) fruit extract, peg-60 hydrogenated castor oil, ammonium acryloyldimethyltaurate/vp copolymer, carbomer, aloe barbadensis leaf extract (20mg), ethylhexylglycerin, potassium hydroxide, allantonin, panthenol, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) flower extract, viola tricolor extract, centaurea cyanus flower extract, sodium hyaluronate, disodium edta, phenoxyethanol, fragrance

This aloe version claims to moisturize and smooth, just what I need to prep my skin for our 17-hour flight the next day. First off, the artwork on the packaging is so adorable! Wish I could illustrate like that. Aside from the fruit and flower extracts, the ingredient list also includes hyaluronic acid and, warning, alcohol. Alcohol is listed pretty high up on the list and it is also not denatured. Sensitive skin users beware. A 14-pack variety set retails at $30 on Amazon.

Loverecipe Aloe Mask
Before masking

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.

Material

Out of the packet, there is a distinct men’s hair gel scent. It smells pretty clean so I’m not complaining. The material is of medium thickness and just a tad stiff. It’s soaked in tons of watery clear essence.

During masking

There weren’t enough cuts so I had to insert my own, it fits very well after that. Adherence was just okay, the areas around my mouth and nose bridge and eyebrows kept unsticking. There was a very nice cooling sensation when I placed it on my skin. I wore this for about 35 mins and it’s just starting to dry up.

After masking

While massaging the essence into my skin, I noticed that my skin did feel smoother and plumper. It dried down to a semi-matte, slightly sticky finish.

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

My skin looks dewy, healthy, and less red. Pores have also shrunk. I think this is a great mask to wear in the day, before make up application.

Go be beautiful!

Love,
