Review: Naruko Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Hydrating Mask EX ★★★★★
Naruko Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Hydrating Mask EX contains active concentrates and claims to intensively hydrate and restore glow.
Naruko is a Taiwanese brand founded by Niu Er. He is a skincare guru who is known to look 20+ years younger than he really is. I always trust His Royal Agelessness Niu Er to come up with awesome products.
Notable ingredients: rose flower water (4th ingredient 👍), snow fungus extract, rose flower extract, rosa hybrid flower extract, rosa centiofolia flower extract, essential oils of rose, rosewood, a bunch of botanical extracts and hyaluronic acid. It also contains algin, a fragrance and viscosity control substance which Cosdna rated a 4 for acne, 4 for irritant and 4 for safety. Please take note if you are sensitive to this.
My skin is feeling very dry and dull today. I’ve already cleansed, toned and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, I detected the usual fresh rose fragrance that all of the products in the rose line has. The sheet mask felt very thin and soft, good thing it came with a backing for ease of application. Essence was watery and drippy.
Adherence was great. Fit was decent. I wore this for 40 mins and it was starting to dry out around the forehead area. I added the leftover essence from the packet to my face to prolong the masking session. It was pretty easy to pat in the remaining essence after peeling the mask off.
My skin felt hydrated and soft, looks dewy, plump, smooth and brightened. Essence dried down to a semi-matte finish but did not take away the glow.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
This is perfect for daytime, summer time, oily peeps or under makeup. I’ll definitely recommend and repurchase till the end of time! Find more Naruko reviews here.
