Recently, L’herboflore is my most-used Taiwanese masks. Take a look at the pretty packaging, can you blame me?
My skin is feeling dry and very irritated. I’ve cleansed, exfoliated, and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, I caught a faint clean scent. The sheet mask came folded nicely and drenched in runny essence. There was a palm-full of essence left after taking the mask out. I slathered it all over my body to prevent wastage.
Made from natural cotton kernals imported from Japan, the silk-like material felt super soft, thin, and luxurious. It came sandwiched in a perforated plastic backing and a thick fabric backing.
My method of putting on such a mask is to the remove the plastic backing first, place mask on face, then peel off the fabric backing on top. This prevents the edges from curling up and sticking onto itself.
Fit was bad at first but due to how pliable the material was, I was able to adjust and push down excess material where necessary. I was surprised that the slit of a mouth hole was able to stay open for my mouth. Stiffer materials would’ve collapsed/closed up immediately. Adherence was also great! I had this on for 20 mins, it was starting to dry out.
Essence absorbed after a few quick pats. Finish was semi-matte and felt slightly sticky. My skin felt deeply hydrated but not moisturized. I needed a moisturizer to seal in all that hydration and prevent trans-epidermal moisture loss. The greatest improvement I saw was to the size of my pores. They were almost non-existent. Also, my skin looked alot brighter and slightly less red.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
I am very happy with the results! This definitely delivered its promise of brightening up my skin. giving it a radiant look. I wish this was cheaper or more readily available. Check out more L’Herboflore reviews here.
