Good day! :D
Today I have another sheet mask review! This one is one of the more unique ones I've tried, you'll see why in a bit.
I've used and reviewed some other Holika Holika sheet masks before here and here, and are overall decent masks, but it's always somehow the scent that prevent it from being a great product, ironically the packaging suggest otherwise. :P
This Holika Holika 3D Aura Bright Patch is not like most sheet masks, which usually provides moisture, nutrients benefits. This mask's sole purpose is to brighten the center part of your face, and reduce dark spots, for a 3D effect. :D
Keep reading to see the review and photos~
BTW, please check out my Etude House giveaway with cosmetic-love!-->
Cute packaging, shiny golden butterfly!
Description and instruction in English! What really drew me in this mask is that it claims to "intensively works on skin defects such as dark spot and freckles." I'll be amazed if it actually reduce the appearance of freckles! :D
Here's it right out of the packaging. Interesting shape isn't it? It's shaped like this so it targets the center of your face, the nose and cheeks where most of spots can be found.
And here it is on my face! :D
It doesn't cover my nose fully though. But it does fit pretty nicely overall, with little to no extra spaces, or air bubbles.
And here's before and after using the sheet mask for around 20 minutes.
This sheet mask is definitely unique! The shape is very interesting, as it targets the center of the face for a 3-dimensional brightening effect. :3 The overall fit is quite nice too as it goes over my nose and on to my cheeks without any kinks. The material, like the other Holika Holika masks, are of good quality, and just the right thickness. The serum is just right too, not drippy or dry, and it doesn't slip down my face either.
i left this on for about 20 minutes, but it was still a bit wet when I toke it off.
Does this mask actually brightens and reduces the appearance of freckles? I was anxious to see the results! Well from the before and after comparisons, my this definitely brightened my face (I tried my best to keep the lighting the same +_+)! And I do remember clearly my face gotten brighter after I toke this off. Now reducing freckles and spots? It does look like some of my freckles have been lightened, but it might be attributed to the overall brightening effect, and I don't think there were any drastic differences. But even if it's just minimal sunspots/freckles lightening, it's good enough, I wasn't expecting this to magiclly erase all my freckles anyways. xD
This mask wasn't sticky either! Keeping up with the non-sticky reputation of Holika Holika. :D
And the scent was a mild sweet floral, much better than the other masks of Holika.
And here's the shape, it does look like a butterfly doesn't it? :D
Although this mask does not have any moisturizing, nourishing effects, it does do what it claims. The brightening effects were noticeable, but the spot reducing wasn't as apparent but to a slight degree lightens as well. No complaints for the mask's fit and scent. It's an effective, and interesting, mask to try if you want to have a 3D brightening effect! :D
Have you tried a sheet mask with an unique cut?
Thanks for reading everyone! ^^
I haven't seen anyone reviewed this yet, so hopefully it'll be helpful. :)
Time to study for my exam again. @_@
See you next post, very soon~
