Bringing you the first out of 4 sheet masks that I will be reviewing from Leaders Insolution. These sheet masks are some of the items I received from the BNT Beauty Box courtesy of BNTNews International.
Leaders Insolution is a high end brand of skin care which is very popular for their sheet masks. The sheet masks they have on the market caters to all skin types and are dermatologically tested, made of high quality ingredients. In fact, the masks by Leaders are well loved by a lot of beauty enthusiasts as well as celebrities.
So for today, I'm reviewing the Bio Medi-curing Mask Aqua Dressing which is specifically geared for people with dry skin. It claims to "effectively nourish the skin and restore moisture." With its watering system, the ultra hydrated mask immediately cools and refreshes skin, leaving it feeling softer and moisturized.
I've tried quite a number of sheet masks and I've always but I'm no expert at them so here goes my observations with this particular mask. Also, with my dry skin type, I'm always looking for things that will help keep my skin nicely hydrated.
The first thing I noticed about the mask when I opened it was that it was thoroughly soaked with essence. I've tried quite a bit of masks which, although they were wet, there isn't that much essence left in the packet. With this mask, there was more than enough juice to apply to the rest of your face and neck after using the mask. Well, we'll get to that later.
Whereas most sheet masks are folded and you apply them directly to your face, this sheet mask is sandwiched between two papers.
Papers used to sandwich the actual mask
So according to instructions, you have to wash your face, apply toner and take out the mask, removing the first layer of paper. Next is to apply the mask on your face and then remove the other sheet of paper, leaving behind the actual mask.
The actual mask reminds me of Vietnamese rice paper used for spring rolls when soaked with water albeit this one is much thicker and more durable.
You have to leave the mask on for around 20-25 mins and then remove it. In my case I left the mask on my face for about an hour because I can feel like there's still a lot of essence on the mask and I feel bad wasting such a good product. After taking off the mask, you should lightly pat the face to help absorb into the face. What I did was dip my hand into the packet of the mask which was still filled with essence and pat that all over my face. If you still have a lot more in the packet, I suggest you take the essence and apply it all over your neck and décolleté.
My experience with this mask was great. I now understand why Leaders Insolution is very popular with their sheet masks. It is indeed of high quality and upon application, the mask was cooling and refreshing.
As you can see on the photos below before trying on the mask my face was dry, after taking off the mask you can see a dewy sheen. It also looks as if my skin is brighter and refreshed, although it might be the result of the lighting when I took the photo.
Over all, I am really pleased about this mask and I can't wait to try on the others as well!
