Before masking

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

Essence

Out of the packet, I caught a light citrusy fragrance. The packet contains an abundance of gel essence, which was very surprising to me. The label stated that the amount of essence is at a regular amount of 25 ml. I applied the extra essence to my face and the rest of my body prior to masking.

Material

The mask sheet was made of biocellulose material and came sandwiched between 2 netted backings. It felt thinner than Leaders’ 7 Wonders Coconut Gel masks.

Apparently, this mask is made with a soft and cooling biocellulose sheet that is meant to conform to the contours of the face comfortably, allowing optimal absorption.

During masking

To apply biocellulose masks, I normally peel off 1 backing, place it on my skin, then peel off the other. This method holds the shape of the super flimsy mask and prevents it from curling up and sticking onto itself, which can be a bitch to unravel.

Fit was alright. I found the nose hole too small, causing a small nose tent to form. The mouth hole was also a little too low for my liking. It was constantly covering my upper lip. The overall size of the sheet mask was also on the small side, it was covering the inner perimeter of my face. Wider faces will not be able to get a full coverage.

As with all biocellulose masks, adherence was great! It stayed put throughout, without introducing air bubbles under the mask.

I took the mask off after 30 mins, it was still damp.

After masking

The remaining essence absorbed with ease. Finish looked matte and did not feel tacky. The first thing I noticed was how bright my skin looked. My skin tone seemed to have became a shade lighter. My skin felt and looked very smooth. Pores were also smaller in size. Most biocellulose masks tend to improve my skin texture. There was a slight calming effect, the redness in my cheeks seemed less. Hydration was just average. Since it was the winter, I slathered on a hydrating serum and a thicker cream to seal everything in.

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

I’m impressed with this mask! The only small downside is the insufficient hydration but it can be easily resolved with a moisturizer. On the other hand, this is perfect on oily skin types and hot weather.
