Sheet masks are always fun. I have been using them a lot lately, and they are now a part of my skincare routine. The Bio-Cell range from The Face Shop has 4 different varieties – firming mask, brightening mask, moisturizing mask, and recovery mask. Here, I am going to talk about Bio-Cell Brightening Face Mask. And, let us see about this mask for today!
Price: 300 INR
This brightening mask features a naturally adhesive bio-cellulose sheet and a hydrating serum containing Glutathione to give you a bright, healthy complexion. (Dermatologist Tested / Formulated without added parabens)

My Experience with The Face Shop Bio-Cell Brightening Face Mask:
Though I have used many sheet masks, I still can find new and interesting ones, because there are quite a lot in the market nowadays. The Face Shop is a Korean brand, and they have a variety of sheet masks. This mask is one of their lab series masks. These masks are very different from the other types that they have launched here.
It was very hot on the day I used this mask. So, I kept it in the fridge for a few minutes before I used it. The pack was easy to open. On taking out the mask, the serum was dripping. Usually, when I refrigerate sheet masks, they do not tend to drip that much. Maybe, that was just my illusion.
The mask was enveloped on two sides by two other sheets. One side was covered in a white soft net-like clothed sheet. The other side was covered by a similar sheet in blue. First, I didn’t know which one to peel off first. I peeled off the white one first. Then I placed the mask on my face along with the blue cover.
After approximately placing the mask over my face and adjusting it to my eyes and lips, I tried to separate the blue cover; it was adhering so well and as if fighting on for its life, it didn’t budge. It took me a while to separate it. But, in this process, my carefully placed mask was disrupted from its position.
The actual sheet mask which you were supposed to be placed on your face was so thin, translucent and gel like. It was not wet on touch but rather felt cold, like some hearts. I left it for 20 minutes. Even though I was tempted to leave it on for more, I did not, because sometimes you have to follow the rules to attain perfection in life, and the same goes with sheet masks. This mask has glutathione as one of the important contents. It was supposedly added for brightening, and ultimately it did brighten.
From the days I found out about sheet masks to till date, I have found only a few masks that work so well. And, this was the best I have used till date. The skin felt soft, looked hydrated, and brightened. My face looked like it had a sudden boost of energy given in large doses.
Pros of The Face Shop Bio-Cell Brightening Face Mask:
• Easy to use
• Non-sticky serum
• Excess serum remaining in the packet is considerable enough to be used for neck, hands, forearms, and feet
• Claims brightening and it gave that to my satisfaction
• Easily available
Cons of The Face Shop Bio-Cell Brightening Face Mask:
• Cost is a factor. Because it can be used only once. But, comparing it to many treatments and facials, if properly prepped and done, it is advantageous
