The sheet masks in Jayjun’s Honey Dew range contains the synergistic effect of manuka honey and propolis to help prevent skin oxidation and provides dry and rough skin with rich nutrients. This particular variant, Honey Dew Purple Mask has a Purple Complex that includes five different extracts (blueberry, beefsteak plant, fig, plum, and beet) to help balance skin and improve elasticity.
Key ingredients and benefits:
Blueberry has tons of antioxidants and vitamins to shield the skin against harmful free radicals that can damage the collagen that keeps the skin firm.
Beefsteak plant is rich in omega-3, soothing, repairing and providing powerful antioxidant protection for mature and aging skin.
Plum moisturizes and nourishes skin.
Fig nourishes skin with many enriching vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals to provide an anti-aging effect.
Beet fights acne and pimples as well as lighten pigmentation.
My skin is feeling normal to oily, sebum production wise. It’s sporting some redness but that’s normal since I have sensitive skin. I’ve cleansed and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, I caught a moderately strong berry + honey scent. Unlike, the green variant, this one had a fainter alcohol scent. Essence was purple and had a runny gel consistency. After retrieving the sheet mask, there was enough essence left over for my neck and arms.
The soft thin sheet was tinted purple by the essence. It felt like cupra and did not come with a backing. Due to medium thin material, beginners at masking might find it a challenge to unfold. Application wasn’t that difficult once the sheet was entirely unfolded.
Fit was great! The holes were of the right size and perfectly lined up with my features. There was some slight excess material on the sides to cater to wider faces. The sheet was also long enough to cover almost my entire forehead and entirely cupped my chin. Thanks to the softness of the material, I was able to easily adjust for fit despite the scare slits.
Adherence was nearly great! There were some slight lifts from the fold lines but only teeny tiny air bubbles. The sheet clung on very well throughout the entire masking process.
I lost track of time and removed the mask after a whopping 40 mins, it was starting to dry out.
There was still some essence left to pat and massage into my skin. It did not absorb very quickly, leaving behind an immediate dewy and greasy finish.
Despite having alcohol listed pretty high up on the INCI list, my skin felt intensely hydrated and moisturized. It felt very uncomfortable on my combo skin. I eventually wiped down the excess essence with a toner-soaked cotton pad. Oily and combo skin types should avoid as the greasiness could add burden to the skin. This mask is highly suitable for dry skin and mature skin types at night.
Despite being intensely hydrated, my skin was only moderately plump. My guess was the mask replenished more oil than water into my skin, which was the complete opposite of what my combo skin required. Due to that, the size of my pores still looked the same.
The calming effect was great! Most of my redness was gone. There was no brightening effect but my skin looked very radiant from the reflectiveness of the dewy finish.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
It’s not that the mask isn’t good, just that it will get more appreciation on a different skin type. If you have dry skin, I urge you to give it a try. Check out more Jayjun reviews here.
