Review: Make P:rem Firming Layering Double Mask ★★★★☆

Make P:rem Firming Layering Double Mask combines two mask-sheet technologies for unparalleled, ‘double’ results- lush, plumped skin that’s noticeably lifted and firmed. It makes use of the layering concept behind Kbeauty to deliver 2 unique essences into the skin.

Aside from the usual water, glycerin, and methylpropanediol, these masks also contain lots of natural extracts like:

Step 1: Firming Mask

  • Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract
  • Fragaria Chiloensis (Strawberry) Fruit Extract
  • Rubus Fruticosus (Blackberry) Fruit Extract
  • Arctostaphylos Uca Ursi Leaf Extract
  • Glycine Soja (Soybean) Seed Extract
  • Royal Jelly Extract, Honey Extract

Step 2: Moisture Mask

  • Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract
  • Schizandra Chinensis Fruit Extract
  • Coptis Japonica Root Extract
  • Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Extract
  • Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract
  • Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract

They are free of parabens, sodium lauryl & laureth sulfates, and synthetic dyes. I’ve never tried or even heard of a multi-step mask that operates on this dual-layer treatment, so I’m super intrigued and excited to try it out!

Before masking

My skin is feeling slightly dry and slightly congested today. I’m sporting some deep set whiteheads along my chin and on the right side of my mouth. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.

Material of first layer, firming mask

The first mask is a firming mask, laden with ingredients to tighten and lift the skin. Out of the packet, I caught a light floral fragrance. The mask sheet material felt super soft and thin, and almost silk-like. I was surprised that it doesn’t come with a backing because a sheet mask of this material is usually a challenge to unfold and apply. It was also loaded with a clear watery-gel essence, which got somewhat drippy during application.

Fit and adherence were great! It was really easy to manipulate the sheet mask to fit my face, thanks to the softness of the material. It was also clinging on really well.

Material of second layer, moisture mask

Next, this second mask is a moisture mask laden with ingredients to hydrate and plump the skin. Out of the packet, I caught the same light floral fragrance as the first mask. Essence was also a clear watery-gel. Unlike the first mask, the material of this mask is slightly thicker, but still super soft and cottony. The slightly firmer material made this easier to unfold and apply despite the lack of a backing. It had a pretty DNA pattern embossed all over it. It also came with double ear hooks and was long enough to cover the neck.

This second mask is supposed to go over the first mask. To prevent moving the first mask which I’ve so painstakingly adjusted for fit, I carefully aimed the holes this second mask over my features to make sure that it required as little adjustment as possible. Then I hooked the side loops over my ears, folded the oblong material under my chin, then hook the bottom loops over my ears.

 

Needless to say, fit and adherence were amazing. BUT, as I hooked the loops over my ears, I noticed the material stretching sideways and forming a humongous tent over my nose, causing the material to the sides of my nose to ‘float’. As I didn’t want those particular areas to not receive nourishment from the sheet mask, I held it down the sides throughout the 30 mins of wear.

It was recommended to have this on for 20 mins, but the mask was still super damp so I waited another 10 mins. Even then, the mask was still loaded with essence and feeling very damp but the ear hooks were starting to feel uncomfortable so I had to take it off. To prevent wastage, I squeeze the precious essence from the sheet after I took it off, and slathered it all over my body.

After masking

There was so much essence left on my skin to pat in. I did take about 5-10 mins to slowly pat and massage everything. After which it dried down to a dewy and tacky finish at first, but became silky and smooth after 2 mins.

The effects were amazing! This is everything I ask for in a sheet mask! Great hydration, brightening, plumping, pore minimization, and calming. My skin had a smooth translucent glow and I couldn’t stop admiring it! Not moisturizer required and I found myself misting less. However, my redness still return halfway through the day.

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

Aside from the hassle of having to put on 2 masks, having to hold on the material on the sides of my nose, and the discomfort from the ear hooks, I’m still majorly impressed with the results. I need to hunt down the soothing and brightening variants and put them to the test!
