So a few weeks back I purchased the KEEOME Hydration Therapy Mask. I’ve seen a few peoples reviews on these, so have been keen to test one out myself. They are not the cheapest of face masks, at £12.50, but a girl’s gotta treat herself every once in a while.
After ordering from their website online, it took 7 days for them to process my order and ship the mask. As I didn’t have to pay for delivery, this time frame didn’t really bother me, and the face mask arrived a few days after that.
So after reading the back of the packet it says “Special care of your skin should be taken at times of extra stress to:
- Help overcome the negative effects of air travel, which exposes the skin to long periods of dry, re-circulated air.
- Look and feel your best before a social event, and help to counteract the dehydrating effects of alcohol.
- Refresh your skin after sleepless or particularly tiring periods, when your body has not had time to fully rest and recover.”
And knowing that I would soon be going away on holiday to Budapest by plane, I thought the best option to truly test the mask, would be to use it after I’ve arrived back home in the UK and that exactly what I did. Little did I know I would be helping the third point too, after countless restless nights whilst away.
The KEEOME Hydration Therapy Mask states that it has been created to help you recover from the stresses and strains of everyday life that causes your skin to feel greasy, dry or tired.
The specially formulated serum is derived from mulberry extracts and enriched with vital vitamins which rehydrates and revitalises your skin from first use.
KEEOME sheet mask technology creates a barrier on top of the serum and reduces contact with air, allowing more of the vitamins and active ingredients to be absorbed into your skin.
So, it’s the day after I got back from Budapest, and I decide to use the mask in the morning, to hopefully revitalise me and my dry skin, which broke out from the plane air too – I hate having sensitive skin!
I rinse my face with warm water and then pat dry, just like it says too. I then remove the mask from the packet, which can I say really does look and feel the part, it’s kind of has matt touch to it.. anyway, the actual mask feels super soft, and it drips of the serum, always a good sign, and I begin to place the mask on my face, using the eye and nose holes as my guide. I flattened the mask on my face, and then waited for 25 minutes as suggested. (YOU LOOK CRAZY FYI!!!) This means that the serum can be absorbed thoroughly. (I watched part of an episode of Gilmore Girls whilst I waited.)
I LOOK LIKE A MONSTER!! HAHAHAAA
After the 25 minutes was up I removed the mask, then rinsed my face once again, with warm water. At my first glance in the mirror it was noticeable that my face looked fresh and clean. It was almost like I’d used the smooth filter on my face! It didn’t really help with any discolouration or redness, but I wasn’t really expecting it to, but I thought it might help. To touch though my face still felt quite dry, like it hadn’t absorbed enough of the serum. I still have a few small dry patches on my face, which was quite surprising. I think for the money, it’s not that life changing, and you can definitely find alternatives for cheaper. Overall, I probably wouldn’t buy this sheet mask again, it didn’t really help with the dryness of my skin, but my face did look smooth and was smooth in places. Maybe over time and constant use of the masks, they could work better, but at £12.50 a piece, that really isn’t affordable over time either.
Have any of you tried this sheet mask? What did you think?
