This sheet mask contains a cocktail of concentrated vitamins and claims to brighten dull skin and deliver moisturization.

Notable ingredients: niacinamide (4th ingredient) , lemon extract and citric acid. Carbomer was also present so sensitive skin users beware. The packaging was entirely silver and very futuristic-looking, not sure how that relates to whitening/brightening.

$40.49 for a box of 10 on Amazon.

Before masking

My skin is feeling very dry looking pretty lacklustre today. I’ve already cleansed, toned and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.

Material

Out of the packet, it smelt very strongly of mama lemon detergent. The material was very thick, opaque and stiff, with silver surface on one side (I’m guessing that’s what the zinc and copper ingredients were for) and white on the other. They were split into 2 pieces, top and bottom.

During masking

Fit was great because of that. I felt like the Tin Man. Adherence wasn’t great especially around the edges. I felt a tingling sensation in first 10 mins which eventually went away. I had this on for about 50 mins, my face was starting to feel very stifling and sweaty from the unbreathable fabric. This foil sheet is a double-edged sword, one one hand it prevents essence from vaporizing quickly and opens up pores to maximize deliverability, on the other hand it feels hot and uncomfortable to wear.

After masking

My skin looked very bright, smooth and dewy, like I had applied a layer of cushion foundation that’s a shade too fair. They ain’t kidding about that intensive whitening. My also felt hydrated but sticky.

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

I’d repurchase for the drastic effects but due to the sticky finish, I’d recommend using this at night. Check out more Banobagi reviews here.
