Review: Skin Food Facial Water Vita-C (Gel Mask)

Hello hello everyone!
How are you all this week? :D

Sorry I haven't posted in the last few days, I was having some trouble with my laptop's fan, and it caused my laptop to randomly shut down, so it was really a pain to do anything on here. t.t
But I got myself an external fan, so the problem is temporarily fixed now. :) 

Anyways, today I have another sheet mask review!
This one it's quite interesting, since it's a gel type, and this is my first time trying out a gel type sheet mask, so I was really excited to see the effects of this. I have also stumbled upon Sam's review on this mask a few days ago, and she mentioned it was cooling, which I'm really glad since it's so humid and hot here! 
Please read on to see the full review and photos~

The package is the largest of all the sheet masks I have used! I guess it's more difficult to fold a gel mask.

This mask says it would cool and hydrate skin. It also claims to contain Vitamin C and Alaska Glacier water, the latter which I am a bit skeptical about, is also claimed to be in the Skin Food Facial Ice Vita Mist, but I'm curious if they actually harvested the water all the way from Alaska. o.o

 The sheet mask right out of the package. It has a white plastic that needs to be peels off.

On my face. :D
It's very jelly like, and on the outer side it is smooth, while the inside is textured so it grips on to the skin better. 

And the mask itself. They always look funny. xD

The feel of this mask is very jelly like! But it also feels fragile, like I could tear it very easily, and it did on the side of the nose cut out in the photo above. The gel texture of this mask makes it difficult to fold, leaving gaps where it's too big for my face, like in the photo above, where the mask protrude on the sides of my chin. I had to keep flattening it to keep it on my skin. The mask at first didn't feel like there was much essence on it, but it wasn't dry, I liked the fact that there wasn't a waste of essence.

I left this on my face for about 30 minutes. Since it's a gel mask, I couldn't really feel it getting dryer. It was very cooling when I put it on my face, and it feels very nice especially on hot summer days, and it kept my face cool throughout the 30 minutes that I had it on. After I toke this mask off, it left my face a bit sticky, but not as much as some regular cotton sheet masks. It did make my face feel very refreshed and moisturized, so it did do what it claims to do. The scent is light, fruity, but also a bit artificial, I am neutral towards it.

Overall, I would give this mask a 3.5/5. It does what it's supposed to do, but I didn't like the fit of the mask and wasn't too fond of the scent either. The price for one of this mask is also quite expensive $5.65 on W2Beauty, so I wouldn't repurchase this, but might try the other types in this range.

Have you tried a gel masks before? How did you like it? 

Thanks for reading this review! Hopefully I'll have the next post up very soon. :)
Now it's time for me to prepare for an interview tomorrow. D:
Quite nervous. +_+ hehe. But hopefully everything will go smoothly. 
Anyways, I see you next post~! :D

    Good luck for your interview! I never tried a gel type mask before but they sound interesting. Might put them into my basket next time :D

  3. hello chee! =)
    yea quite expensive for just one mask. but it looks promising and it seems to fit your face well, just expensive.


  4. Ive always wanted to try a gel mask..
    But they are so pricey><
    This one sounds pretty good~
    I might give it a try^^

  5. Omg that gel mask looks squishy and is probably cool and refreshing! I want to try. :3

  6. Haha ya it's really annoying sometimes when I'm in the middle of writing. D: This mask is pretty expensive too, so it's not really worth it. :P thanks for reading ^^

  7. Thank you!! <3 Yes I find them very soothing and cooling, but this one is kind of expensive :O

  8. It is expensive $5+ for one mask! >.< The fit is ok, but some part don't cover my face well, because it doesn't fold easily. But overall it's ok, just too expensive! haha Thanks for reading Apple :)

  9. Ya I've always wanted to try some too, but they are pricey, so I just got one. :P
    But it's quite unique and feels nice and cool on the skin ^^

  10. Yes it's totally cool and refreshing! And very squishy too :3 You should try one ^^ Thanks for reading!

  11. Haha i loved using gel lip masks, so i think i will like gel face masks too!
    I might get one for summer seeing that it has cooling effect :)

  12. Woah!~ Never seen a gel mask with a unique pattern like that on it. Usually they are like smooth.
    Did the mask stay on well? or does it slide around???
    Thanks for sharing this review though :D

  13. I haven't used a mask for ages. Should do that. :P The textured appearance is interesting. None of the ones I've used have that had.

    Good luck with your interview. ^^

  14. It did stay on pretty well because of the texture! Didn't move at all :D But some parts are too big for my face, and did not fold over well, because the rigid jelly texture.
    Thanks for reading! ^^

  15. This one is really cooling! And it's clear so it looks less scary. xD
    Thank you! I think it went well :D

  16. gel mask sounds interesting!! would love to try it!

  17. Ah that's a bummer hmm~~~
    But thanks for the review :D

  18. I'd love to try this, I've not used a gel mask before. I really need some cooling products with the strangely hot weather we're having in the UK and this one seems seems great!

    I tried gel mask and are really delicate. Really fragile but my skin looks really healthier after that.


  21. you should try it, the interesting texture itself is worth a try :D

  22. In Canada its strangely hot too right now! I don't see too many effects with this mask, but it felt really nice and cooling, try one and see if you like it :D

  23. I tried to be really careful with this mask, good thing it didn't rip. xD
    I find most mask has some immediate effects after, but this one didn't have too much of a difference except this it's moisturizing and cooling, but good enough :P

  24. Thanks for the mention ^_^! Did you try cutting it around the areas that don't fit to fold it over on itself? I found that was the best way to stop having to keep pressing the mask back on lol

  25. No problem! :D I was too lazy to cut it, so I kept flattening it with my fingers. haha xP
    I'll try that next time ^^

  26. I've been eyeing at this product for the longest time! I have a very sensitive, dry skin so I was wondering if it's gentle enough for a very sensitive face? If so, I'd buy this the next day haha <3
