I've just finished my midterm today, to relax, I indulged myself with a sheet mask! x)
So it's time for another mask review! Tralala
This time it's from the brand Vanedo Beauty Friends, which is quite well known for their affordable sheet masks! I got mine from eBay, and there were so many types to choose from. I decided to try the pearl and snail masks. And for today, I am going to review the pearl mask, which promise to be moisturizing, convergence(?), and brightening. I am not sure what convergence mean in this context, but I suppose it's to minimize pores? If you know please do share! ^^
Anyways for the full review and photos please read on~ :D
Peal essence mask! It's suited for all skin types and for all seasons!
Lot's of info on the back!
Lot's of English directions too! I should try either heating the mask or cooling it next time! :D
Also it's nice to see alcohol is not an ingredient in this mask unlike in the Holika Holika mask I reviewed last time.
The mask was so wet when I toke it out, practically dripping! You can see a pool of serum on my palm!
While I had it on, some dripped down my neck too. =/
On my face (excuse my messy hair Dx), quite big even for my big face. :P
(I'll plan to show my face soon xD)
The mask material feels thick, and of good quality, however on my face, the materials feels scratchy and rough, not soothing at all. =/ The mask size was also a bit too big, surprising, since my face is pretty big haha. It's rare to see a mask that completely cover my nose. -.- But, still it's too big and leave too many gaps! The only thing I liked was that the eye cut-outs were kept so it can be folded over on to under the eye, less material wasted and more concentration on the eye bags. :D
It was also very drippy with serum, even dripped on the floor while to toke it out. Good thing it wasn't sticky, but I really dislike excessive serum on sheet masks, it just makes everything messy, and usually ends up as waste.
I left this mask on for about 30 minutes, though it was still quite wet when I toke it off. Maybe I'm nitpicking, but the mask just didn't feel comfortable at all, the scratchiness, excessive serum, and poor fitting wasn't a pleasant experience. =.=
It claims to have a moisturizing effect, and like most masks my skin definitely feel moisturized afterwards! My skin feels bouncy and smooth too. :)
Convergence wise, I'll just assume it's pore minimizing. I didn't really see a difference in my pore size to be honest. If I'm wrong on the definition please don't hesitate to let me know!
Then as for brightening, my face definitely looked brighter and more awake afterwards. I felt it made me feel very awake too. Not a great thing since I use masks before I head to bed. xD
Also, another plus was that this mask was not sticky! If you have read my other reviews you'll know how much I dislike stickiness on my face. xD Even though this mask left a lot of serum behind, it got fully absorbed after a few minutes.
The scent is a very light sweet floral, couldn't even detect it after some time.
Overall, I didn't like how the mask felt on my skin, it was too big, rough, and drippy. But the effects were quite nice! Well two out of the three claimed effects showed through. This was also cheap compared to many other masks, so not too bad, but I much prefer the texture of other masks that I have tried. I hope the snail mask from this line would feel better though. :P
Have you tried any Vanedo or Beauty Friends masks?
Thanks so much fore reading!
I hope you've enjoyed this post, and I'll see you in the next post very soon! ^^
