I just need to say this, the design is amazing. I'm raising my glass to Skinfood designers, haha. They can even make Comic Sans look good.
The material of the package feels awesome as well.
Anyway, the pack is easy to open. The mask is covered in some kind of film so that the serum stays in the cotton and doesn't go all over the place ^^
|There you can see the film I mentioned before~|
I really like the size of these masks. Other sheet masks I've tried were always really big so the product got into my hair and stuff. This one fits my face a little better. It still looks freaking weird though:
Well the nose part of the mask is way too big for me but whatever~
The mask feels cold when applying it to your face. Like, really cold. Have you ever splashed your face with extremely cold water in the morning? That's what it feels like. It's not a bad feeling but not very nice either (not in winter at least). I'm glad that feeling lasts for a few seconds only.
Other than that, the cotton sticks to your skin nicely, it doesn't slide off or drip.
My skin has been super sensitive these days and I've been getting breakouts ;__; Probably because of the dry air caused by heaters... This mask is supposed to soothe irritated skin so I thought that'd be just right.
While wearing the mask everything was fine (only cold :P). I left it on for 25 minutes.
When I took off the mask there was some serum left which I massaged into my skin. My face was all red though. >< My skin didn't hurt or anything but I was a little disappointed. I felt like after a long walk outside at -5°C haha.
Here's the proof:
It looked even worse in reality ;) After about 20 minutes the redness went away. The mask really was hydrating, my skin felt moisturized afterwards. But did it soothe my skin? Not really. And did it soften it? Nope.
So I don't really know if I should tell you this mask is worth your money or not. I can imagine the mask feeling really nice in summer and it was moisturizing but the fact that my face was so red afterwards is just... ugh ;_; I'm going to list the pros and cons and I hope that'll be helpful for you.
Pros: has a cooling effect, the packaging is amazing, easy to apply, due to the film no product is lost, hydrating/moisturizing
Cons: a little too "cold" for winter, left my skin red, wasn't very soothing, didn't soften my skin, didn't "make a difference"
I'm giving this 2.5 out of 5 stars because of the hydrating, cooling effect and the packaging I just can't help it *^*
Sorry for the sucky English in this post I didn't really sleep last night ><
