The ingredients look solid. I don’t see any flag for concern. But what are those hard to pronounce ingredients??

Butylene Glycol: used as solvent and humectant for skin condition and reduce viscosity of the product. It’s widely use in skincare and cosmetics. It doesn’t cause irritation from topical application with the percentage allowed in skin care formula.

1,2-Hexanediol: functions as solvent.

Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer: a thickener, emulsifier and stabilizing the products. no known side effect.

Ethylhexylglycerin: nature preservatives, derived from glycerin, also help conditioning the skin.

Who is it for? Everyone, but as always everyone’s skin is different. Pay attention to your skin’s reaction 🙂

How do you use it?
Use in step you normally use sheet mask. The instruction says to use it 1-2 times a week and leave it on for 10-20 min. But I’ve been using it every other day for a week and didn’t notice any irritations. I also left it on for 30 min. I like that there’s about 1 tsp of extra essence to put on my face before I put the mask on.

My results
My skin did look and feel brighter and more plump after using the mask. The next morning my face still look brighter than normal. But keep in mind that I’ve been using this mask more often than the recommendation. I really like this mask. No artificial smell 🙂

Worth repurchase? Yes for me! It’s good for calming and moisturize the skin. With continue use I’m sure it will improve the skin tone!
