Skincare Sunday – Skinesque Brightening Charcoal Mask

February 10, 2019

When the third of four waves of snow in the last couple of weeks hits your city, you stay inside, watch The Americans, do laundry and mask! Today, thanks to a gift from @jillshellum, I’m testing out the @skinesque Brightening Charcoal Mask ($7.50 for a single-use on their website).
What it claims:
🔘 Gentle Foaming Cleanser (1.5g): deeply cleanses and removes impurities for clear and bright skin
🔘 Hydra Essence (1.5g): formulated with adenosine and sodium hyaluronate to retain moisture, promotes collagen formation and reduces the appearance of fine lines
🔘 Brightening+ Charcoal Mask (1 sheet): crafted with oak tree charcoal to deeply purify and detoxify skin, while also delivering essential ingredients for brightening and hydration
🔘 Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
🔘 Reduces dark spots
🔘 Brightens dull skin
🔘 Hydrates skin
🔘 Removes toxins and impurities
🔘 Paraben-free and sulfate-free
🔘 Tip: Use in the morning before makeup application
🔘 Cruelty-free Korean skincare for the busy, modern woman
My experience:
👍🏻 I enjoyed the cleanser. The packet contained more than enough to cleanse my entire face and neck and didn’t leave my skin feeling too dry or tight.
👍🏻👎🏻 There was also enough essence to cover my entire face and neck easily, but I wasn’t wowed by this step. I am sure with ongoing use I may feel differently, but upon first impression, it’s not a life-changing product.
👍🏻👎🏻 The mask is well saturated, which is always preferred over the alternative. However, it doesn’t fit ideally and that’s a big drawback for me.
My verdict:
Although this 3-step process made my skin feel cleansed, pampered and hydrated, I don’t think it was impressive enough to repurchase – especially for the price.
What’s your favorite sheet mask? I just have yet to find one that I can’t live without and would love your recommendations!
