FaceInc by NailsInc London : Gilt Tripper Exfoliating Sheet Mask

20170803_192028.jpg

This is a new offer at my local H&M, I was not super impressed by the last one I tried but I decided to give in and purchase this one.

Here’s my review of that one: Face Inc by Nails Inc London: Cat Nap brightening sheet mask

This is an exfoliating sheet mask with a “gold barrier” which is supposed to help the formula and remove dead skin cells.

The formula contains hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, cactus flower extract and honey extract. To mention a few.

But does it work?

 

Instructions

Apply to clean and dried skin. Be careful when taking out of the packaging and when applying it, make sure that it is in even contact with the skin. Leave it on for fifteen minutes and massage excessive serum into the skin. Wash off after use.

 

How did this work?

This feels much sturdier than the regular sheet mask and I feel wonderfully silly in it.

The first thing I notice is just how warm it feels after just a couple of seconds, I do not think it is because it is aggravating my skin, it is just being warmed up by my body heat.

One thing of notice is that this mask does not have any particular scent, which is greatly welcomed by me as it means that I’m going to be more comfortable using this.

I really do like this but at the last minutes of using this I could feel it becoming  a little bit uncomfortable, this is due to my skin taking in all the skin loving ingredients which all in all is not a bad thing, so it was nice taking it off after 15 minutes.

I massaged the remains and washed my face as per instructions.

I have to say that I am impressed by this.

My skin is left feeling soft, glowing and I feel refreshed.

Have you tried any of these sheet masks?

What do you think about them?

Anatomicals: Botanical Hydrating Rose Face Mask

This is a sheet mask from Anatomicals, a brand that I’ve never tried before but I’ve heard  a lot of good stuff about their products.

This brand distinguishes themselves with their more humourous approach towards skin care, this is thanks to the packaging which often has comedic sayings. In my opinion I’d wish more brands used a more similar approach to beauty especially skin care.

One of the things that shocked me when I pulled out this mask is just how much serum there is with this sheet mask, another thing is how big this sheet mask is compared to the others I’ve tried. This sheet mask is so large it managed to cover my throat area a bit which is actually wonderfull since that area also needs some tlc.

Another thing is the authentic rose scent this has, during the twenty minutes this was on it was extremely relaxing and I could definitely feel this working with my skin.

The packaging says that it contains extracts of aloe, english ivy and rose. This to me makes this mask ideal for those days when my skin needs some serious moisture boosting. But in my belief this is formulated for people with dry skin and therefore this is one that I can only use rarely or it might become too much for my oily/combination skin.

After using this my skin was hydrated and the effect is still there after two days.

I’m very happy with this mask and I can recommend it.

This is a new offering I found that instantly got me interested.

It is a sheet mask with green tea and botanical extract which are supposed to relieve+energize fatigued and dehydrated skin. Specifically it says on the package that it is suitable for dry to normal skin but I’m taking my chances with my combo/oily skin.

How does it work?

Compared to a lot of sheet mask I’ve tried in the past, this mask is extremely wet but it still does fit my facial shape quite well compared to a lot of other sheet masks. The scent is also very refreshing and mild compared to a lot of heavy scented sheet masks.

This is also supposed to be placed upon dry, clean skin for 15 minutes and the leftover product is supposed to be massaged into skin and not rinsed off.

I can understand the name of this sheet mask, as it is mentioned on the pack that is balances, cleanse skin and leave it refreshed.

 

Personally speaking I don’t like the trend with printed faces on sheet masks, it’s not cute its gimmicky but as long as this sheet mask works as it is supposed to then that does not matter so much.

It delivers, this is a sheet mask I’ll buy again because I really do feel that this product delivered what it claimed.

My skin feels extremely soft and freshened up. Some of my problem areas were cleared up and I really loved the experience this gave me, it really did feel luxurious and the leftover product was absorbed quickly in my skin as I massaged it in as per instructions.

It did not aggravate my skin at all as I feared that this might would have been too much for my skin as I don’t have the skin type this is advertised for. It did on the other hand treat my skin to become more balanced and provided plenty of hydration in the process.

My skin looks glowing and I’m happy that I took my chance with this product.

I can confidently recommend this and I’m highly inclined to try the other sheet masks in this line.
