Amidst my busy schedule comes the savior of my skin - this new Lovemore Glacier Water Soothing Fresh Mask! Thanks to the lovely people at Secretive, I get to try the Glacier Water type as it is more suitable for my acne prone, dry (and sad) skin.
"With the unique combination of minerals and trace elements, pure Swiss Alps glacier water enhances essence penetration, resulting in long-lasting hydration. Combined with AC.NET (sebum-controlling agent) and botanical extract, it helps condition skin for less visible pores and a clearer complexion."
Firstly, this mask is a pleasant surprise. The material is super thin, but super comfortable and effective! Feels like a second skin! Most people think that thicker fabric makes better masks as it holds more "essence"? I don't personally like my mask to drip essence everywhere. And while this mask makes me feel like my skin did "drink up" the essences, thicker fabric masks just remain wet and even made my skin sticky when removed.
It comes with a front and back plastic sheet to protect the delicate natural silk mask. It is also very wide so it fits more face shapes!
1. Remove white plastic sheet
2. Fit mask over face
3. Remove blue non-woven sheet
4. Leave mask on for 10-15 mins
5. Gently pat any remaining essence into skin
I prefer to just remove both backings at once then apply the mask because the blue non-woven sheet makes it a lil rigid to fit onto my face. Then I proceed to smooth out the air bubbles to the best of my ability and fold in where I feel its slightly wider.
After using 3 pieces within a week, I am ready to give my verdict! My skin does feel a little bit more moisturized after each use but it probably just lasts the night. My acne did not get better just by using this but it sure did not aggravate my condition. It is still a good mask to provide hydration and I guess the material of the mask played a part. I will purchase this after I run out simply because of the comfort and hydration, together with the very affordable price.
Do however note that this mask is not suitable for irritated, inflamed or sensitive skin. And like all other masks from this brand, it is made in Taiwan.
Thanks for looking~~~
