Read on for the review.
The light fluffy cream mask comes in a typical squeeze tube which is hygienic and easy to use. I use quite a lot for one face, as you can see, but you can adjust the amount according to your preference. Consistent with the other product in the HydraQuench range, the cream mask has a tolerable floral scent that is somewhat like jasmine.
What's in the mask?
- Hyaluronic Acid with High Molecular Weight: Forms a barrier film to prevent excessive moisture evaporation
- Katafray Bark: Boosts the transformation of epidermal keratinocytes into new corneal cells. Encourages the synthesis of natural moisturization factors
- Hyaluronic Acid with Low Molecular Weight: Replenishes essential water reserves that keep skin firm and toned
- Sorbier bud: Strengthens blood vessels and boosts microcirculation for enhanced skin radiance
After cleansing, the cream is evenly applied onto dry skin. The mask is then left for 5-10 minutes to absorb. Then, a dry sheet mask is placed over the cream mask and pressed on with gentle pressure. Excess cream mask is removed with cotton soaked in toner.
It's not difficult to tell when my skin is dry. See that shiny bit on my forehead in the before pic? That's an eczema patch with hardening skin, which is a lot less obvious in the after picture. Please ignore my horrendous eye bags and dark circles *sighs*
Another way to indicate dryness on my skin is by the white patches on my cheeks. There's also another protruding eczema patch on my temple. After the mask, my skin color looks better with the white patches less apparent and the eczema patch too became less visible. Also, my skin was slightly glowing.
After taking the pictures, I then continued applying my serums and moisturizer.
All in all, I feel that this is very good product and pretty much meets all the requirements I look for in a hydrating mask. I don't really have anything bad to say about it but it lacks a certain "wow" factor. Basically, I like the product but I'm not in love and overly excited about it. Don't let my insufficient enthusiasm stop you from giving this a go though. I'm probably just difficult to please.
