It’s time for another Mask Monday, y’all! This week I am very excited to share my review with you.
This mask claims to nourish and revitalize the skin. Packed with honey, it is supposed to calm and deeply moisturize. The benefits of this mask are pretty straightforward unlike the others I’ve previously reviewed. Just in case you’re not on the honey-bandwagon, I’ll include some benefits of honey below.
- Humectant, meaning it retains and maintains moisture
- Naturally antibacterial
- Anti-inflammatory, very soothing
- Softening and conditioning
- Toning properties
- Nutritious, packed with vitamins and amino acids
- Natural preservative
I can’t even get over the packaging you guys. Pikachu is probably one of the most adorable cartoon characters of all time. His little sleeping body is the main focus on the packaging. I actually saved it because I’m a hoarder.
Like with the other TonyMoly products that I’ve seen/tried, there is an equal amount of English writing on the package though by now we all know how to use a sheet mask. There is a little slit on the edge to make opening easier, but it’s on the bottom of the package (in case you can’t find it like yours truly).
The first thing I noticed after opening this up was the lovely smell. It has a honey fragrance balanced by citrus and floral notes; imagine lavender lemonade but not so lavender-y.
Unlike some of the other sheet masks I’ve recently tried, this one was not very saturated. The sheet itself was well moisturized but there was not a lot of liquid leftover in the package.
If you follow me on Snapchat you may have heard a little bit about my experience with this mask. I applied it in the morning before makeup because I hadn’t been moisturizing enough for the few days prior.
The mask was well sized, nicely scented like I mentioned, and fit easily on my face. I had initially budgeted 25-30 minutes for the mask, but I ended up keeping it on about 35 minutes total. I could tell it was time to take off the mask once (I started running late) the sheet started sort of bubbling up/detaching from my skin.
I’ve included a photo of the back of this mask but it may be hard to read. When checking the ingredients I noticed that the second ingredient is glycerin. For those of you who are unaware, glycerin is one of the best ingredients before makeup. It’s a bit tacky so it causes your makeup to adhere better and it also prolongs the wear time of your makeup. I didn’t know that before I’d put the mask on, but it was a huge surprise bonus.
When I took off the mask I felt very moisturized and glowy. I did have a random demarcation line where the mask had a fold in it. Other than that, I did feel that this mask was deeply moisturizing and soothing and provided an overall glow.
I applied my makeup straightaway, only adding moisturizer around my eyes and to my lips. I don’t usually do much powder baking, but I did set my makeup with powder in some areas. I used the Laura Mercier loose translucent powder in the original shade and dusted a very light amount directly under my eyes and over my smile lines.
Due to the fact that I have pretty substantial creases around my mouth, makeup usually sinks into those lines instantly no matter what I’ve tried beforehand. This time I noticed that my smile lines looked so smooth. They stayed relatively crease free for the 10+ hours I was wearing makeup. For that makeup-extending benefit alone, I’d use this mask again.
Overall, I really liked this mask. I loved the fragrance and I did feel like it held up it’s claims. I would say if you have very dry skin, you are probably not going to feel super hydrated. I have combo skin (oily T, normal perimeters) and I felt great, so you can make your own call. This mask cost me $3 dollars on the Shop Hush website. Besides Shop Hush, I believe this mask is available at Ulta. It’s definitely worth a try, you guys. Please let me know your thoughts and if you decide to try it out!
