I was really impressed with the flowers and aloe variant, so I’m really excited to try this! This variant claims to lift, de-wrinkle and soothe.
The ingredient list looks stellar as it contains botanical extracts and botanical ferment filtrates from top to bottom! Fermented ingredients are very beneficial for the skin as the process breaks the ingredients down into smaller and more bio available components that may be more readily absorbed and utilized by skin. All the botanical ingredients in here are organically grown and eco-friendly! It is also free of parabens, mineral oils, synthetic dyes and fragrances. Perfect for my sensitive skin and inner tree hugger!

My skin is feeling pretty normal today, just slightly dry. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
The packaging is super interesting, it’s a flat, see-through container, not the usual foil packet. I had fun shaking it and watching the jelly essence slide all over the place! The jelly-like essence smelled like jasmine flowers! My fave!
The hydrogel was so super thin! Thinnest I’ve ever seen! That said, it wasn’t difficult to unfold and place on the skin, thanks to the plastic sheet backing. Still, it was pretty slippery. There wasn’t much essence left in the packaging.
Both top and bottom pieces stayed in place throughout. There was a minty cool sensation, which felt super refreshing and soothing. I wish it was long enough to cover my entire forehead and go over my chin a little. It currently stops three-quarter way to my hairline and barely touches the tip of my chin. I had this on for an hour and the hydrogel, although starting to thin out, refused to dry, I took it off anyway.
At this point, the experience was pretty much just like the flowers and aloe variant.
There was hardly any essence left on my skin, I probably shouldn’t have left it on for so long. I noticed some brightening, moderate hydration, but no calming effect. My redness was still there. My pores did look slightly smaller and fine lines plumped, hydrogel masks usually do those for me. What little leftover essence absorbed lightning fast with a matte finish.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
This is a pretty pricey mask for such moderate results. For the same price, you can achieve better results with the flowers and aloe variant. I will repurchase that instead of this. Find my reviews of Whamisa masks here.
Go be beautiful!
