Review: Annie’s Way Peptide + Rose Rejuvenating Mask ★★★★★
Annie’s Way is a Taiwanese brand and this mask is part of their latest Fantasy Land series which consists of 6 other sheet masks with beautiful whimsical packaging. They’re all have the feather light, invisible silk material, just like the ones in the silk mask series with plainer packaging.
Annie’s Way Peptide + Rose Rejuvenating Mask claims to hydrate, nourish, firm, and brighten skin. Anything with rose is my ultimate weakness so needless to say, this is the first variant I’m trying from their new line. I love the packaging design of this one, it’s elegant yet cute.
Rose flower water: hydration
Pseudoalteromonas ferment extract: anti-aging, contains peptides to stimulate collagen growth
My skin is feeling dry and slightly irritated and congested. 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 refreshing rose scent. This reminded me of their Mamonde’s Rose Water Toner or Annie’s Way France Rose Silk Mask. It’s such a beautiful scent, perfume companies need to make this so I can throw my money at it.
The tencel material felt just like silk. It was light, extremely thin, and extremely soft. It came with a thick perforated plastic backing to hold its shape and also to aid in the application. Place the sheet mask with the backing on your face, then peel off the backing from the outside. This prevents the mask from curling up and sticking onto itself, which is a disaster because it is almost impossible to unfold that mess.
However, I noticed something that did not happen with the previous silk masks. As I removed the plastic backing, fibers seemed to get caught with it so I was unable to remove it smoothly at one go. Perhaps this is something the company needs to improve.
Fit was great! Mainly due to the softness of the material, I was able to easily manipulate it to fit my face. My only complaint how small the mouth hole was. It was literally a slit. Granted, I could push it up to make space for my mouth, but still, it felt constrained and uncomfortable.
Adherence was also great! Again, it’s thanks to the softness of the material. Once the material touched my skin, it clung for its dear life and refused to budge.
I had this on for 25 mins, the edges were starting to turn white and dry out.
The leftover essence absorbed with ease after a few quick pats. Finish was matte and non-tacky.
Holy crap. My skin looked and felt freaking amazing! It looked like a spotless canvas but super nourished underneath. This checked off all the things I look for in sheet masks.
The only thing that’s lacking was moisturization. But this was something that can be easily resolved with a moisturizer. I’d like to think of it as a good thing because this meant it’s suitable for all skin types and all occasions. Use this alone if you’re day masking or have oily skin; use this with a moisturizer if you’re night masking or have combo or dry skin.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
For such an affordable mask, this is top-notch quality. We might have hit a couple of snags like the awkward fit and the inability to smoothly remove the backing. However, the effects more than made up for those things. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed using this mask, down to the refreshing rose scent. I would give this 6 stars if I could!
