best silk mask I've tried

I got this mask as part of a Beauty Box. I really loved it, it felt smooth and luxurious and was very relaxing. My skin felt very soft after taking it off. I also found that there was lots of fluid left in the bag, so I used that the next night on my skin as a moisturiser (but washed it off before bed as it is a little sticky). The only thing I didn't like about this mask was that the lip hole was far too small, so I kept having to reposition the mask so it wasn't going in my mouth. Next time, I'll just cut the mouth hole wider.

Essenzza sheet mask

After picking this up in the vault, I left it a while before I used it. Why? well I picked up a lot of masks in the vault and I wanted to devote a little time to the tube ones first but I was done with that. So I was onto the sheet masks that I had collected.

This is a single use sheet mask where the mask is sandwiched between 2 other plastic sheets wrapping it, so you peel off one side, apply mask then remove the other side and double check that you have it right on your face before waiting. There are cut outs for eyes, nose and mouth, which are pretty standard to help line it up but they won't line up properly as they are generic. The little clock thing on the pack shows 20-30 minutes to wear it. The mask is quite wet when you first put it on but as time went on, about the 30 minute mark, the part of the mask that was on my cheeks was feeling dry to touch. This could be because I did try to smooth the liquid around the top of my neck as the forehead part was feeling wet with product. When I pulled this off you could see the sheen of the oil all over my face, I rubbed in any excess product. As it dries it seems to go a little tacky, this isn't a major issue for me. I didn't notice any major difference right away around my eyes and still can't see any major difference in 24 hours maybe some brightness in my skin but that could be a trick of the light. I didn't notice any scent with this much like the wipes for this one.

Rebuy on this one is a no as I don't feel it did much for me.

U Need to Wipe This Sticky, Tacky Essenza Mask Off

I was really happy to score this in the vault. I am currently into sheet masks and what attracted me to this was that they brand said it was formulated with the best active natural ingredients and without the use of harsh preservatives or sulphates. The ingredients' list goes water, glycerin, propanediol, xanthan gum, rehmannia extract, Anti-ageing essence - pentapeptide, rosewood oil, hydroxyethyl cellulose, tremella fuciformis extract, portulaca oleracea extract, palmitoyl peptide, collagen, hyaluronic acid, allantoin, phenoxy-ethanol, argan oil and vitamin citrus. So although there are a few things that aren't so natural like phenoxy-ethanol, overall the list is pretty natural. I should mention that that's the list of ingredients on the mask I have. Essenzza must have reformulated the essence as the ingredients list on the website. So far I've only tried the blue sheet mask from Essenza, ingredients wise I like this one better. The sheet itself is a thin material and is sandwiched between a white plastic layer and blue layer that is thicker material. The purpose seems so that you don't rip the sheet mask which is so thin but has a lot of thick, goopy serum on it. Now I actually happen to have dry sheet masks that are that exact same material for DIY sheet masks. I have actually mixed up my own concoction and soaked them in it and then applied them. The material is really thin so the sheet will drip a lot of liquid and dry within a short time, so I understand why they made the formula thicker and more goopy. The benefits of using this material for the mask is that it sticks on well and you can easily smooth it out eliminating air bubbles so your skin can really soak up the solution, it also doesn't feel as heavy on your skin as ones with a thicker material. The cons of it are that you have two extra layers to help you unfold and apply the mask without it ripping and that you need the serum solution to be thick because the material dries out fast. Also because the blue layer wasn't aligned perfectly so that the mouth and eye holes were in the same place when I applied this mask I got serum on my mouth and eyes and had to squint in the mirror to get it in place. Personally in hindsight having tried out the silk cotton material, I wouldn't use it for a mask because it doesn't give you as much freedom with the viscosity of your serum solution to make the sheet mask user friendly and not dry out in about five minutes. The thick goopy essence is really soothing for dry skin on application, it's easy to smooth out the mask.

Tips: Even after 30 minutes with this on the mask is still quite wet. I didn't notice much of a scent but then with most sheet masks I don't pay much attention to the scent. The scent for this sheet mask isn't unpleasant but I can't really describe how it smells.

When I took this off loads of thick goopy, tacky serum was sitting on my skin still not absorbed. Even on my dry hands it was a bit sticky, the consistency isn't as bad as the blue sheet mask from the same brand, but it's still really sticky. The serum felt like a watered down glue on my face, neck, decolletage - my skin just got tackier not more hydrated and smooth. I ended up having to put some toner on a couple of cotton rounds to wipe off the glue like serum and then apply a facial oil so my face wouldn't feel tacky. The instructions on the site say to wipe away the excess with one of their wipes under the caution notes next to the ingredients of the sheet mask, those instructions should be on the sheet mask pack as well but it's not. Instead it just says to allow the formulation to dry for silky smooth skin. I'm into sheet masks and I've use a quite a few different brands and I've never had to wipe off the excess serum. It usually absorbs while the sheet mask is on and the excess you gently tap into your skin and it completely absorbs within minutes and my skin feels hydrated and smooth and the fine lines I have are less noticeable. This did nothing for the appearance of my fine lines.

So I'll wrap up this review by saying that at the time of writing this is the second worst sheet mask I have used, it's better than the blue one from the same brand but hardly. I do like the natural ingredients but I'm sure I can find another brand that has natural ingredients too. And it cost $5 per mask. That's expensive. I can get a good high quality mask for anywhere between $2.50-$5 from other well known Korean brands. Sheet masks that feel good to apply and come with additional sachets of cleanser and ampoule or other single use sachets that have products to use in my nightly skincare routine. So needless to say I won't repurchase this and I definitely don't recommend this either.

Give this mask a pass. If you want to try out something from this brand their wipes are really good and better value for money. If you want a sheet mask look at other Korean brands they're better quality, feel nicer, less fuss and actually do something for your skin....and you don't need to wipe them off afterwards because they feel like glue.

Really relaxing

I picked this mask up in the beauty vault. I'm a bit on the fence with sheet masks, I'm not sure if they do anything totally amazing but they are quite fun to use.

This comes in a cute pink sachet. I think the packaging is fun and vibrant. I think the price point is pretty good too. Obviously you'd get a better deal with a tube of mask but $5 doesn't really break the bank.

I was a teeny bit confused with the instructions. When you open this, there is 3 layers. It says that you just apply it straight from the packet so I just slapped the whole lot on. Then I read the back and your supposed to remove the middle layer. So I put the bottom layer (white) on, and removed the middle layer. Then it has the top layer which is blue. I wasn't really sure what to do with that one, it kind of looked like you put it on but then take it straight back off? I did that but I wasn't really sure of the point of it, maybe I was being a bit spesh, I have no idea!

The mask is really soft and very saturated in product. It felt so nice and cooling on. The eye and mouth holes are a bit small but I found it easy enough to breathe and watch tv. This says to leave it on for around 20 minutes. I think I did half an hour. It was still very wet when I took it off and it didn't really feel like much product had absorbed into my skin. I massaged what had remained on my face into my skin and let that dry down. I then wiped the mask onto my face again and let that dry too. I did that 3 times, I was trying to get as much benefit out of the product as I could.

I'm not really sure if this made much difference to my skin. I think it looked a bit more glowing afterwards but now that it's the next day, I can't tell any difference. I'd possibly pick it up at kmart, maybe as an impulse purchase one day. I did enjoy the whole routine of it, I just don't think it does a whole lot.

A bit sticky

This is my first time ever using a mask! I wanted to try one, so I took the opportunity to get this from the Beauty Vault. The instructions to use it were clear and easy to follow.

One funny thing is that the mask is quite wide, while I have a long face. So it was slightly awkward getting it to fit. The mouth hole is tiny! My mouth is small, but this was even smaller! Luckily the nose hole is quite large so I did not feel like I was suffocating. I thought I looked a bit like Michael Myers with it on, but then again it is nearly Halloween.

I left it on for about 25 minutes, as recommended. The mask has a lot of product on it. Too much I think. Like the other reviews mentioned, a lot of product was left sitting on my face after I removed the mask. I massaged it in, but my face still felt sticky.

Tips: It did make my skin feel soft, but I think there is too much product on the mask for dry skin like mine to properly absorb.

Love/hate

I was lucky enough to get this from the beauty vault. I have never tried a sheet mask before so was very excited to try it out. It comes in a cute pink sachet which is easy to tear open. You peel off the plastic layer and place the white side on your face then peel the blue layer off...easy peasy! The mask felt nice on my skin, I have very sensitive skin and had no burning or irritations at all. I left it on for 20 mins then pulled it off. It left residue on my face which on the packaging said to let it dry...I waited 20 mins and my face was sooooo sticky so I decided to rub it in and same thing...sticky! So I ended up having to wash my face. My skin felt amazing and so soft but the sticky face is not pleasant at all. I would probably not use it again purely because of that.

Sticky face

I love the idea that this is an affordable, ready-to-use and what appears to be effective face mask however I was sadly disappointed in the end. I bought this from Kmart for less than $5 and my expectations were high given that the corresponding makeup wipes were fantastic.

It comes in an easy to open pink sachet. I suggest reading the instructions on the back or watching the video on the brand’s website to avoid too much unnecessary handling of the mask when trying to put it on.

There are 3 layers saturated in the silky formula, you pull away the white plastic layer and place the clear layer towards your face and the blue away from the face. I couldn’t detect a particular scent which is great because you have to leave the mask on for 20-30 minutes and the last thing you want is a scent you can’t stand.

Remove the blue layer and fit the clear layer more securely to your face. What I really like about the mask was that it was easy to move and secure into place. The clear layer is stretchy so you can move it so that it fits nicely around your eyes and mouth. This alone made the mask worth it because I felt that my entire face was able to absorb the formula.

Once I was happy with my mask, I carried on about my night and 30 minutes later I removed it. When I pulled it away I could see parts of the mask had dried which reminded me of dried up towelettes. This is where everything fell over for me. My face looked refreshed and rejuvenated as if I had just received a facial but the sticky residue left behind was not my cup of tea.

In the video it advises to massage any leftover formula into the skin. This would have been ok however my face remained sticky to the point that when I tried to smooth my hand over it, it would tug – yep that kind of sticky. I don’t know many people who are willing to sleep with their face feeling that way. I’ve tried this mask twice now and I’m happy to stay with my trusty clay masque – more mess but I’ll settle for that over "sticky face" any day.

I got a mega sticky face too! Not pleasant.

Darn I had my eye on this particular one. I haven't used a mask sheet mask because it has that sticky icky feeling. Great review well detailed.
