Peach Slices Calm Mask features a delightful blend of jasmine and chamomile to instantly restore skin into a calm and soothed state. Peach Slices is a newer sister brand of Peach & Lily. This brand focuses on bringing K beauty products to CVS stores. Lucky for me, my local CVS stores carries a few of these sheet masks that I’ve been dying to try.
Rose extract – minimizes redness and soothes irritation
Lemon fruit extract – a natural astringent with powerful antibacterial and toning properties
Chamomile extract – has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory abilities
Jasmine extract – packed full of antioxidants it is able to protect skin from environmental stressors
My skin is feeling normal to oily as the days get hotter. The heat is also causing my skin to flush and show more redness. Good thing there is no skin sensitivity like in the winter. I’ve cleansed and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, I caught a musky scent of moderate strength. Essence was clear and had a runny consistency. There was more than a palm-full of essence left in the packet after removing the sheet mask. I used it to re-wet the mask halfway through.
The cotton material had a medium thickness. Softness and smoothness was just average. It did not come with a backing but did not pose a challenge to unfold and apply.
Fit was bad. The mask was alot longer than it was wide. So much so that it covered my humongous forehead AND even covered my top hairline. The bottom half was so long that my mouth was covered by the middle piece while the mouth hole was on the top of my chin. So I snipped the sheet in half and overlapped it against the top half as shown in the picture above. This worked wonders. There was also insufficient cuts for customizing the fit.
Adherence was average. It clung on for the most part but the sides were all lifted hence introducing air bubbles underneath the mask. Fold lines were also lifted.
The mask seemed to dry out pretty quickly. White patches were starting to show at the 15 min mark, so I re-wet it with the leftover essence in the packet. This enabled me to keep the mask on till the 35 min mark.
The remaining essence patted in with ease, kinda like a viscous toner. Finish was non-tacky and looked semi-matte.
My skin felt moderately hydrated but not moisturized. This felt more like a toner mask and would benefit all skin types if used right after cleansing, prior to essences and serums. I did apply a serum and a moisturizer post-masking. Oily skin might enjoy this especially on hot days.
I did not notice any skin plumping or skin brightening effects. Pore size also had no change. The only thing this mask had going for it was its amazing calming capabilities. Redness was entirely gone from my face.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
This is one of those masks that are a challenge to judge. When used appropriately as a toner mask for its calming properties only, it’s a stellar product. However, these days, sheet masks are able to do everything from hydration/moisturization to plumping and calming. So to gain a competitive edge in this highly saturated market, this mask definitely needs to pack more punch. Check out more Peach Slices review here.
