How are you doing today? I have been on & off IMBB for a family get together. December is the most happening month in my life, especially after wedding as I became Mrs Lohani on 15th December five years back. Also because it is my hubby’s birthday on 25th December. Gosh, I can’t believe we have completed five years of our love life! Time is travelling at jet speed; it seems as if my college days had just started and here I stand with two kids – my 3 years old and my hubby. 😛
Anyway my today’s obsession is not a gift nor a surprise, but a steal from my sister. 😛 My sister is blessed with dry skin, hence anything with the words “rose” and “hydrating” draws her attention. On a small trip to her place, I snatched this sheet mask from her, and I am so loving it. I feel that it might not treat dry and parched skin, but it sure feels like a treat for wilted, dehydrated skin. It provides instant moisture, especially during rush hours. Let’s read more about it.
$6 for one 0.084 Oz sheet mask, excludes shipping and taxes
What it is:
A line of natural fiber sheet masks, each with a skin refreshing benefit.
Rose Mask: Provides deep moisture and brightening properties through natural rose extract.
What it does:
Each of these masks is infused with a different active ingredient for relaxing the skin and achieving a brighter, more revitalized complexion. The fiber masks perfectly hug facial contours for better penetration of the active ingredients.
My Experience with Sephora Collection Ultra Moisturizing and Brightening Rose Face Mask:
The rose mask comes in a rose pink packaging with one soggy and heavenly smelling sheet inside. It does seem slightly messy, being soggy and slimy in nature, but the sheet easily fits on my round face as it has eye and nose holes. These holes easily fit on my orbital bone area and lip area. To my liking, the mask adheres to my skin for as long as I keep it on, with no leakage. Over all I am pretty happy with this user friendly & travel friendly packaging. The length and width of this rose mask is such that it easily slips on my face.
It easily adheres on my skin without stinging or irritating, and I can easily carry on with my daily chores. I do feel a cooling sensation on my face the moment I slip it on my skin. After that the fluid tends to get absorbed on my skin. I did find the soggy sheet slightly messy at first to hold on my face, but to my liking the fluid does not drip. Hence I can easily relax on a chair or even work on laptop while wearing the sheet. It also means that the fluid is mild for our eyes, however I take extra care to keep the mask away from my sensitive eyes.
I have been using this mask quite often these days as it makes my skin so radiant and hydrated within few minutes. The first time, I used it for 15 minutes as instructed. Then gently massaged the remnants of the mask onto skin which was so warming and hydrating. There after I have been keeping this mask for as long as 30-50 minutes even without any issues as the fluid never dries and hence I feel like soaking in as much hydrating lotion as I can, considering the chilly weather around. In fact my pores seem much refined, clear with soft, supple and plumped up skin temporarily. This makes me skip the lotion for a day time.
The good thing is that the sheet still holds ample fluid to be re-used on our elbow or feet to make them touchably soft. That’s how I make full use of my sheet mask from head to toe. 😛 I often use this mask as before any party or before any outing. It replaces my primer and moisturizer to give me radiant, poised skin for generous number of hours; I am good to go with powder touch-ups or just a gentle tap of rose water. Even my sister vouches for this mask and claims that with regular usage of this mask, she even felt visible reduction in her fine lines on the cheek area, which were resultant of dehydrated skin.
Moreover my skin feels incredibly soft and supple too. It did not break out my skin nor did it accentuate my acne prone skin, apart from being gentle enough for sensitive eye area. As I said, I have also used it for as long as 50 minutes on my skin, it still never gave me red or bumpy skin. In fact I found my skin hydrated and plumped up.
I would definitely suggest this mask to every gal irrespective of skin type since it is mild enough for dry skin while it does not aggravate our oily skin issues. I feel dry skin beauties might need a moisturizer after few hours of usage, but oily and combination skinned beauties can easily skip moisturiser for a day. I am definitely getting it again throughout winters for instant hydration and to add radiance to my dull face.
Let’s sum up pros and cons:
Pros of Sephora Collection Ultra Moisturizing and Brightening Rose Face Mask:
• A natural fiber sheet mask infused with the goodness of rice extract, aloe leaf juice and rose extract
• It is not formulated with parabens, sulphates or phthalates etc
• The fiber sheet mask does exactly what it claims as my skin feels hydrated, plumped up skin and glowy
• It also refines my open pores making them visibly smaller, thereby clearing my complexion
• The fiber sheet is of perfect length and width to fit on my face
• The sheet mask does seem soggy initially, but it does not drip
• The fluid gives a cooling sensation
• The fluid smells heavenly while it is gentle enough for my sensitive eye area
• It never caused me breakouts nor aggravated any skin issue
• Suitable for every skin type, especially for winters
• A mess free, easy to use and travel friendly packaging
Cons of Sephora Collection Ultra Moisturizing and Brightening Rose Face Mask:
• It does contain alcohol and other chemicals which are known to bother sensitive skin
Well the price seems a little high since it is a one time use mask, though I am willing to get it at any price for its ease of usage and then the hydrating results it imparts on my oily skin. We cannot compare it to our traditional homemade masks, but then who has the time to do it always? For me it sure seems to be a winter treat. I would say just try it once and you will so love the instantly hydrated, soft and plump skin.
