Review: Manefit Cucumber Soothing + Moisturizing Mask ★★☆☆☆

This mask claims to soothe, hydrate, even skin tone, and reduce puffiness.

Notable ingredients: grapefruit extract, cucumber extract, grape extract, orange extract, and lemon extract. Alcohol is listed as the third ingredient, if you are allergic, please avoid. This also contains carbomer, a potential sensitizing ingredient.

Before masking

My skin is awful today. It’s dry, red, and irritated I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.

Material

Out of the packet, I caught a very strong perfumey fragrance. Essence was clear and gooey, I’m guessing it’s due to the presence of dimethicone. The microfiber mask sheet felt very soft and thin, it felt like a cross between hydrogel and cotton, very dreamy and ideal. Since it’s so soft, I’d place it on my face first then peel off the mesh backing. The holey nature of the mesh backing prevented the mask from moving as I was peeling it off. It even came with little tabs on the sides to aid peeling.

During masking

However, the fit wasn’t right for me. It was too wide, I had to fold down the sides. There was a humongous nose tent which I addressed by snipping the material next to my nose. It was also covering my top lip.

Adherence was alright, some air bubbles surfaced during the wear. I had this on for 20 mins, it was starting to detach from my chin.

It is just me or are the peel tabs uneven?

After masking

There was very little essence left to massage in. My skin felt adequately hydrated, however, I also felt an uncomfortable hydrating film on my skin. It gave me a nice silky finish though. Redness reduction was average. A couple hours later, my skin returned to it’s dry and blotchy state. We can conclude that the effects of this mask didn’t last long on me.

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

I was disappointed because I heard alot of good reviews about this one. Check out more Manefit reviews here.
