Product Description

A Ceramide Mask Sheet for greater skin hydration and elasticity

What is Ceramide?


Any of a group of amides formed by linking a fatty acid to sphingosine, Ceramide constitutes over 50% of the hydrating factors found in the surface layer of skin, and is responsible for hydrating and nourishing skin so that it stays soft and smooth.


The concentrations of Ceramide in this gentle mask sheet are effectively absorbed into skin for greater hydration and elasticity.


Directions:




Texture & Scent:
This mask is probably the wettest one i've came across so far - its still kinda drippy until you take it off after 20 minutes! >.<

This has a rather strong floral scent which made me sneeze! >.<

Packaging:


This mask is individually packed into their respective foil packs and is sold by the piece.

Like the other masks from this brand, the mouth part is ridiculously huge:



Time Test:
15-20 minutes!

Price & Availability:
This mask is priced at RM6.90 each and is available at all The Face Shop outlets.


My $0.02:

Anybody missed Masking Mondays?? Haha! I'll have to admit that i've been slacking for the past few months, but i hope to pick this up again *fingers crossed* Now that I've had a tub of the super lovely Laneige Sleeping Pack permanently on my dresser, i find that i have ignored my sheet masks completely! >.<

Oh well time to remedy that now! :D


This mask moisturizes ok, but I wished that it was more moisturizing for my combi dry skin. It does brighten my face quite well though:



You get lots of essence with this product too... too much in fact! Haha! The price is not too bad too!

All in all, i find this an ok mask - i most probably won't repurchase though because 1. i don't like products with alcohol and 2. there are more moisturizing masks out there at the same price :)
