Before masking

My skin is a slightly irritated and dry today. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.

Out of the packet, I caught a light clean fragrance mixed in with a slight ocean scent. Not my favorite. Essence was viscous and felt more like a gel-jelly. There wasn’t much essence left in the packet, not surprising since there was only 22g to begin with. The cupra mask came in 2 pieces for the top and bottom of the face. They were sandwiched between 2 plastic backings.

During masking

The bottom piece gave me a perfect fit but the top piece was too wide and had an overlong nose flap. I fixed those issues by folding the excess back, no biggie. Adherence was great! I had this on for 25 mins, it was starting to dry out. Suggest to only have this on for 20 mins max.

After masking

It took quite abit of patting and massaging for the essence to absorb/dry down. Finish was tacky and looked silky. My skin felt okay hydrated but very soft to the touch. I also noticed slight brightening and slight calming. No change to my pore size. What I really hated about this is the lingering ocean scent on my face, reminds me of an unwashed vjj. I slathered on my most pungent sun screen to mask the scent. Phew!

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

This is a great one for normal skin types. Thought it’s touted as a deep hydration mask, I doubt this is sufficient for dry skin types.
