A Brightening and Relaxing mask for all skin types.
Like all the Suiskin masks, this one comes without a box. Its cover is sealed with plastic ( that’s how you know it is a new product ) and it comes in a small cute plastic jar. Inside the jar is a lid to protect the product from contamination.
The mask comes in a very creamy texture. It also can come off quite greasy, but as it is a wash-off mask, this doesn’t pose any problems. As you rub it on your skin, the mask leaves a white cast on your face.
Apply an appropriate amount on your face and leave it on for about 20 minutes. The mask will dry up, so wash it off before it dries up. As you can see above, it has that ‘pearly’ look to it, something like what the Dayshu cream gives.
I know that this mask contains Titanium Dioxide. You not only find Titanium Dioxide in sunscreens, but also in whitening products ( or even dental products ) as it is cheap, and gives a temporary brightening and whitening effect on the skin.
There is macadamia seed oil here which probably explains the greasiness of the mask, as well as other flower extracts. Of course, there is the Edelweiss leaf extract which is known for it’s brightening and antioxidant properties.
Biosaccharide gum-1 is a polysaccharide made by fermenting plants. A moisturizing and skin soothing ingredient. It works by binding water to the epidermis, and creating a moisture-binding film on the skin that gives the skin a soft, smooth feeling. In addition to providing long lasting moisturization, it also functions as an anti-irritant.
This mask does brighten up your skin instantly and the effects are temporary like every other masks. It does give that pearly glow after application, as you can see that pearly glow on the texture of the mask itself. It doesn’t irritate the skin, and washes off rather easily- leaving your skin brighter. Don’t expect any difference in hydration or texture of your skin. It does what it promises to do – brighten your skin tone , and does it well.
The photo below proves the brightening effects that the mask does to your skin. There is a visible effect after application of the mask.
