REVIEW

The mask is probably the wettest fabric sheet mask I’ve ever used – it’s absolutely drenched in serum. I was fully expecting it to drip everywhere, but no, it stays within the mask. Although, if you fold up the empty sachet to keep for the next day, there’s just enough serum left in the packet for one light application over the face.

It’s also well cut, there’s no snipping bits off (one of my pet hates with sheet masks), to adjust the fit over the eye, nose and mouth area. The mask only just comes under the chin. There’s quite a lot of folded fabric on the outer face area but it stays put and you can walk around without fear of the mask sliding off.

I did feel a slight, but brief, tingling sensation when I first put it on.

Taking it off, you’ll notice that it’s not half as heavy, the serum has soaked into the skin and interestingly, there wasn’t that much excess serum left on the skin to massage in. What I did do though, was squeeze the mask and applied whatever came out onto my hands.

The result is that skin is definitely brighter, especially around the upper cheekbones and eye area and there’s a temporary firmness of the cheeks.

I understand you’re supposed to use this mask last thing at night to let the serum continue to work its magic, but because the face is firmed up and brighter, I think I would actually use this before a night out.
