When we use sheet masks, the time we are able to use them to their maximum potential is generally around 10-20 minutes before they start to dry out. If you have ever tried to use your sheet mask beyond the recommended time of usage of 20 minutes, then you might not be aware of the adverse effects that has on the skin. It’s always important you never use a sheet mask beyond the recommended time, if you do do, you the “drying” process of the sheet mask in itself will begin to re-absorb the essence it just finished delivering into your skin.
Yet, sometimes we want to be able to use sheet masks longer when we feel our skin is in desperate need of some serious TLC, trust me, I’ve been there. Thankfully, the By Wishtrend brand has launched a sheet mask that can be used for almost up to 1 hour before it’s recommended removal time! For use dry skin girls out there, this is beyond ideal! So let’s take a look at the claims of this long lasting sheet mask.
1. Highly Moisturizing
3. Long-Lasting Hydrating
4. Can be used on ALL skin types
5. Deeply Nourishing
7. Made with New material Gauze for long lasting Moisture retention for longer usage
These are some ideal claims for those of us looking for a sheet mask for very dry skin that will also give a brightening and anti-aging effect.
When it comes down to the nitty gritty, it truly is all about the ingredients, so let’s dive a little deeper into the structure of this new type of sheet mask.
Water, Butylene Glycol, Dipropylene Glycol, Isopentyldiol, Glycereth-26, Glycerin, Niacinamide (Whitening agent), 1,2-Hexanediol, Propanediol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Arginine, Carbomer, Betaine, Allantoin, Ethylhexylglycerin, Adenosine (anti wrinkle agent), Disodium EDTA, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate (anti-Inflammatory restoring agent), Panthenol (vitamin B5), Hydroxyethylcellulose, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Whitening agent / Vitamin C derivatives), Tocopheryl Acetate (vitamin E antioxidant), Rosa Centifolia Flower Water (rose water anti-inflammatory antioxidants), Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil (oil controlling pore unclogging), Sodium Hyaluronate (moisturizing hydrating agent), Glutathione(Whitening agent), Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract (anti-inflammatory anti-aging antioxidant), Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract (antioxidant vitamin E anti-aging), Beta-Glucan (calming soothing), Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Fruit Extract (antioxidants), Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract (vitamin C), Glycine Soja (Soybean) Seed Extract (anti-aging skin firming antioxidants), Juniperus Communis Fruit Extract (antibacterial skin detoxing), Allium Sativum (Garlic) Bulb Extract (antifungal skin healing), Rubus Fruticosus (Blackberry) Fruit Extract (high antioxidant anti-aging), Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract (anti-aging anti-inflammatory), Morus Alba Fruit Extract (natural antibiotic skin healing), Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Extract (nourishing anti-aging), Lecithin (moisturizing)
When it comes to the ingredients breakdown, there is a load of skin healing and anti-aging care within the ingredients list. Of course, there are some potential irritants in there such as the odd essential oil or brightening agent. If you know you are sensitive to some of these beneficial ingredients, then that is something to keep in mind. However, for the majority of the public, this ingredients is far from harmful and very beneficial!
When it comes to the actual review of this product, the feeling and experience is where it all starts. Firstly, the method of opening the package is different from your standard sheet mask where you would tear at the side or cut to open. Instead you peel the package open, revealing the 2 piece sheet mask.
The sheet mask comes in 2 parts, the top part for the forehead, eyes, nose, upper cheeks and upper lip. Then the lower part for the lower cheeks, jawline and mouth area. For myself, I love this design as everyone has a different face shape and size, making this sheet mask very customizable and able to fit all face sizes and features.
For the texture of the sheet mask it is rather unique. It has an odd slightly “sponge” feel to it, is thicker than the average cotton sheet mask and it very saturated with product. It is so saturated, you literally can feel the weight of the amount of product the sheet is able to retain within it.
Aside from the texture, the sheet mask clings to the skin with ease. Making it easy to apply this sheet mask and still be able to walk around your home, sip on some tea and watch netflix.
The first time I used this mask, I left it on for the entire 40 minutes it recommended. By the end of the 40 minutes, there was still plenty of product within the mask, making me feel as if I truly could have left this mask on for 1 hour or more. I used this mask after a good deep exfoliation and blackhead extraction. My skin looked almost fully restored after using it! My redness was seriously reduced and feeling extremely plump and alive! The next morning, I have no dry patches or raw areas for the exfoliation and extraction the night before.
In just the one use, I instantly knew this mask was my go-to “healing” mask. Seriously, for me, this is my magic mask to be used when my skin really needs to be healed, lifted and plumped. My skin without fail looks amazing after I used it, making it out compete my long time holy grail sheet mask *which will go unnamed at this time.*
Seriously though, new holy grail sheet mask!
