Today, I'll be sharing about the brightening mask!
Here's some product details directly from the website!
SKIN TYPE: Sun Damaged, Discolored Skin, Not Suitable for Sensitive Skin
MISSION: Revealing & Enlightening
- Grapefruit Seed Extract helps deflect environmental toxins
- Rare Asian plant extracts promote brighter skin tone
- Salicylic Acid gently exfoliates dead skin cells
DELIVERY: Made from biodegradable wood pulp natural cloth that retains 50% more moisture than synthetic material, Karuna sheet masks force pores to fully absorb nourishing ingredients that help create instant results—much more than a serum would alone.
PRICE: $28 for 4 masks
The packaging was quite typical--nothing very unique. I believe, however, that that actual product's packaging is a bit different. Since I got a sample mask, the exterior appears quite plain.
The mask is wrapped around a plastic structure--probably meant to make opening the mask easier. However, for me, it was still pretty difficult. Sadly, when I unfolded my mask, it was ripped!!
The mask was very difficult to use. It was soaked with product/serum (which is pretty nice), but that also made applying the mask difficult since the mask was very easy to rip. When I was trying to apply the already ripped mask, I ripped it more trying to fit it on my face...
|Here's a close up -- can you see the rip right under my eye?|
When the mask was finally applied, my face stung. After a couple minutes, the stinging stopped, and my face had a nice minty feel to it. I left the mask on for 20 minutes and then rubbed the remaining product into my face (no need to wash it off!) Sadly, my face was a bit red afterwards, and the stinging started again as the serum began to dry.
The next day, the redness was completely gone. I believe my face looked a little bit righter, but the difference wasn't quite noticeable... My sister, who tried the mask as well, felt the same way.
I know lots of people think this mask works quite well, but I believe I just discovered that I have sensitive skin...and since this mask is not for sensitive skin, my face became irritated, red, and stingy. >___< Whoops, at least I know now :)
This mask didn't work well for my skin type. The results also were quite clear.
- sticks to the face well
- pricey ($7/mask)
- stings a little
- easily broken/ripped
- unpleasant smell - smells a bit like chemicals
- serum is a little sticky
Repurchase? No, but I'm willing to try a different mask from the brand.
