Review: JM Solution Water Luminous Avocado Nourishing In Oil Mask ★★★★★
JM Solution Water Luminous Avocado Nourishing In Oil Mask deeply moisturizes and calm skin with its unique formulation. The mixture of avocado essence and avocado oil holds moisture in the skin, improves skin elasticity, and strengthens the skin barrier. Avocado oil is rich in fatty acids and is excellent for moisturizing the skin. In addition to vitamin E, avocado oil contains potassium, lecithin, and many other nutrients that can nourish and moisturize the skin.
Fold over the bottom oil pouch and push up until it pops.
For the synergy effect for oil ampoule and essence, rub gently in a circular motion to mix the essence.
Apply a sheet mask onto your face and remove the mask after 10-20 minutes later. Pat in the remaining essence.
I found this the bottom sachet relatively easy to pop. The clear packaging also allowed me to see if I had sufficiently mixed the oil into the essence.
My skin is feeling sensitive and even more prone to dehydration due to the sudden drop in temperatures. I’ve cleansed and toned my skin. Due to the presence of oil in this sheet mask, I’ve applied 3 layers of toner and also a runny serum to ensure that my dehydration-prone skin gets the water it craves. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, I caught a faint fragrance. The sheet mask material felt like a thick microfiber. It felt smooth and soft but pretty thick. It did not come with a backing but was rather easy to unfold and apply. Essence was runny and had a slight greasy feel. There was an abundance of essence left in the packet so I applied it all over my body.
Fit was good. The sheet was of a decent size and entirely covered my face, leaving some slight excess on the sides. I found the holes to be a little too small for my features, especially my nose. There was a small nose tent forming, so I took a scissors to it and deepened the cuts at the sides of my nose. The material easily conformed to the curves of my face but the shape was not so perfect.
Adherence was also just okay. The entire sheet was sliding downwards every so slowly. Fold lines were lifted and introduced some air bubbles in. The material around my chin also unwrapped and hung down like a goatee.
I removed the mask after 40 mins, it was drying out.
The remaining essence absorbed with ease, leaving behind a greasy and dewy-looking finish. It did continue to gradually dry down to a more comfortable finish.
My skin felt appropriately hydrated, thanks to the runny layers I’d applied prior to masking. Moisturization levels were off the charts due to the presence of oil, hence I didn’t require a moisturizer at all. On my dehydration-prone combo skin, this felt relieving and comforting on a cold night. Oily skin types should avoid this as it might feel too greasy and icky. Dry skin types, on the other hand, will enjoy this all year round due to the presence of oil.
I also noticed my skin barrier feeling stronger because using an acid that very same day did not sting as much as usual. That was a huge plus for me since I have sensitive skin due to a dout of dermatitis a couple of years ago.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
I highly recommend this mask to all skin types other than oily skin. It is affordable and highly effective. Will definitely repurchase and use it daily to continue to build up my precious skin barrier.
