The main purpose of this product is hydration and soothing for your skin. It also advertised to help the skin maintain its elasticity, brighten and tighten pores.
I personally think a cool feature of the product is that it will turn into a flat surface after used even though it’s jelly thick and feels like actual gelatin. I store my product in the fridge to keep it nice and cool. I actually haven’t tried it in the freezer, but I assume it would be quite similar.
HOW TO USE
The packaging of the product is simple but cute, it comes in a plastic tub with a matching box, inside the box there is also a spatula which is great for hygienic purposes.
The product as mentioned is very jelly like, it’s almost like a solid. Despite this, it is extremely spreadable, I was able to apply it very well onto my face. Upon applying, you can immediately feel how cooling this product is, it’s almost like you’re actually putting soothing jelly onto your face!
After using the product, my skin feels much more hydrated, soft and pretty smooth. I really enjoyed the mask as I felt relaxed and calmed having it on, I really like the cooling feeling it gives you. Every time I use this mask it makes me feel like I’m pampering myself and having a destress session. I would put on some music and light a candle with my AC on in room and just close my eyes and relax. In terms of hydration, this product gave my skin a good amount of moisture back but it doesn’t seem to do well in making my pores look smaller. I see little to no chance at all for my pores and my skin does not seem brighter whatsoever.
I understand that this is a sleeping pack and I should leave it on overnight, but sleeping masks don’t do me good as I have sensitive skin and I would have a rash if I leave it too long on my face. So, I leave it for a good half an hour or so and wash it off.
VERDICT: BUY! (7/10)
Overall, this mask is pretty good in my opinion. It works well in giving your skin the moisture it needs and making you feel calm and relaxed when having it on. I generally like how this mask feel and works on my face. But it doesn’t do all the things it said it would such as brightening the skin as well as tightening the pores. But then again I wasn’t able to use this as a sleeping mask due to my sensitive skin so it might work differently for you.
What’s your fave sleeping mask? If you have sensitive skin too, does sleeping masks (or any masks) irritate your face when you leave it on for too long? Let me know!
