My skin is feeling dehydrated and slightly 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 strong perfumey fragrance. The sheet mask material felt soft and slightly stiff and rough. It had a medium thickness and felt like it was made of tencel aka eucalyptus fiber. The sheet mask was held together by a perforated plastic backing.
Essence was clear and had a watery-gel consistency. It looked and felt like a hydrating serum. 25 ml of essence meant there was enough for the neck and arms after the sheet mask was removed from the packet.
Fit was great! It was a really large sheet and covered my face entirely. The position and size of the holes were just nice as well. There was a slight nose tent which I rectified by deepening the cut next to my nostrils.
Adherence was average. Fold lines refused to stay flat. I also noticed some air bubbles sneaking in throughout the wear. Edges were also lifted. Aside from those, the sheet mask stayed in place and did not slip and slide around.
I took the mask off after 30 mins, it was drying out and white patches sporadically across my face.
While massaging in the remaining essence, I noticed how soft and smooth my skin felt. Finish slightly greasy with a semi-matte look.
My skin felt intensely moisturized. Most of the redness had went away, leaving behind a calm and even-toned skin. Hydration was present, but insufficient for my dehydration-prone skin. I rectified this with a hydrating mist. I did not notice any brightening effects but my skin texture looked very smooth even.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
This is a great mask for dry skin. Combo skin type might need to pat in watery products prior to sheet masking. Oily skin might want to avoid this mask or wipe down the excess with a toner-soaked cotton pad. I personally will not repurchase as there are better calming and hydrating masks available.
