Mandom Beauty: Barrier Repair Facial Mask HA (Hyaluronic Acid) Review
Sheets Per Pack: 5
MADE IN JAPAN
Seeing as I have dehydrated skin which is exacerbated with the change in seasons and general surrounding environment, my skin ends up looking dry and dull more often than I’d like it to. Let’s just say that it has a personality of its own. 🙁
What can I do to combat dehydrated skin with my skincare without breaking the bank?
Cue face masks from Mandom Beauty <3
With the iconic chubby baby as the product’s main image, the face masks are easily spotted in my local drugstore — Mannings and Watsons — and there’s almost always a promotion going on for them 🙂 In regards to the packaging, one gets five face masks per pack and they are in individual sachets. The design of the face mask leaves much to be desired as it tore quite easily and I had to position the mask for a bit seeing as the bits around the chin were detached and it bunched up instead of laying flat on my skin; this is in comparison to other sheet masks that are well-cut, shaped and perfectly envelope one’s face without ripping or bunching up.
In terms of the product itself, each sachet boasts an awesome 27ml of essence for each face mask and I personally like putting one of these on in the morning for an extra boost of hydration before I carry on with my regular skincare and makeup routine. I put it on for about 10 to 15 minutes after cleansing my face, and when the time was up, I peeled it off and massaged the remaining essence into my face and neck to make sure that all of the essence went to good use, followed by my regular skincare routine. 😀 Formulated without parabens and fragrance, my skin felt nicely hydrated after using this mask; however, compared to the Super Moist one, this mask would be better suited for those who have normal skin as it wasn’t nearly as hydrating as I’d like it to be for my combination-dry skin even during the Spring or Summer season in Hong Kong, or when the humidity levels are hovering around 70-80%. As such, although this is a perfectly good mask to alternate with other expensive masks that I have in my arsenal, I think I would relegate this mask to the mornings when I just need an extra boost of hydration that doesn’t leave my skin sticky prior to putting on my makeup.
All in all, I would repurchase Mandom Beauty face masks but perhaps I’ll opt for the Super Moist simply because it suits my particular skin condition better 😀
