REVIEW | NATURE REPUBLIC Real Comforting Mask - Hyaluronic Acid 

NATURE REPUBLIC ACID MASK.png

Hey, Everyone! I hope you feeling amazing.

Today we are reviewing the Real Comforting Mask from Nature Republic. This one is the Hyaluronic Acid version.

Let me take a minute to say that this was a promotional item from Nature Republic for review and consideration. But, of course, I’ll give you my honest opinion.

Also, this review is almost identical to my review of the Vitamin C mask from this line. I can't help it! The experience was too similar!

NATURE REPUBLIC MASK3.jpeg

PRODUCT INFO

BRAND: Nature Republic  

PRODUCT NAME: Real Comforting Mask - Hyaluronic Acid 

SIZE: One Sheet Mask

PRICE: $1.90 from Nature Republic

LINK: https://www.naturerepublicusa.com/products/real-comforting-mask-sheet-hyaluronic-acid

INGREDIENT LIST: SkinCarisma

PRODUCT CLAIMS: The brand targets this sheet mask line towards those of us with sensitive skin. It claims that the ingredients contains “mild natural essential oils” and that the mask fabric is comforting as well. This mask in particular is supposed to provide instant, long-lasting hydration.

PACKAGING: Packaging is functional!

SCENT: The scent is light and refreshing.

FEEL: The sheet mask is pilowy and soft. The essence is clear, watery gel consistency. 

HOW TO: After cleansing and toning the skin, apply the sheet mask for 10-15 mins. I personally like to apply the extra essense to my neck, chest, arms… etc. After removing the mask, the mask should still be pretty moist, apply it to your neck or chest for 5-10 mins. Tap in the essence and complete skincare routine.  

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Again, The fit of the mask was a bit wide for my face...but that’s not a deal breaker for me. It’s a good mask that is hydrating and cooling. The brand claims that there should be no sticky or tackiness... but after removing the mask, there is a slight stickiness to the skin which goes away when you complete the rest of your skincare.

OVERTIME: NA

KBEAUTY NATURE REPUBLIC MASK2.jpeg

RATING: 4 / 5

This may feel like Dejavu... The product lives up to the claims. It’s exactly what a sheet mask experience should be but it’s not a mask I HAVE to have in my skincare kit and you won’t see me running out to repurchase it. There are so many masks out there to just settle for one, ya know?

Thank you again to Nature Republic for sending this over! They sent me two other masks from this line: Vitamin C, Vitamin E. Check out these reviews if you are interested!

REVIEW | NATURE REPUBLIC Real Comforting Mask - Vitamin C

NATURE REPUBLIC REAL COMFORTING MASK VITAMIN C.png

Hey, Everyone! I hope you feeling amazing.

Today we are reviewing the Real Comforting Mask from Nature Republic. This one is the Vitamin C version.

Let me take a minute to say that this was a promotional item from Nature Republic for review and consideration. But, of course, I’ll give you my honest opintion.

PRODUCT INFO

BRAND: Nature Republic  

PRODUCT NAME: Real Comforting Mask (Vit. C)

SIZE: One Sheet Mask

PRICE: $1.90 from Nature Republic

LINK: https://www.naturerepublicusa.com/products/real-comforting-mask-sheet-vitamin-c

INGREDIENT LIST: SkinCarisma

PRODUCT CLAIMS: The brand targets this sheet mask line towards those of us with sensitive skin. It claims that the ingredients contains “mild natural essential oils” and that the mask fabric is comforting as well. This mask in particular is supposed to help even skin tone and rejuvenate the skin.

PACKAGING: Packaging is functional!

SCENT: The scent is light and refreshing.

FEEL: The sheet mask is pilowy and soft. The essence is clear and hydrating!  

HOW TO: After cleansing and toning the skin, apply the sheet mask for 10-15 mins.

Tap in the essence and complete skincare routine.  

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: The fit of the mask was a bit wide for my face...but that’s not a deal breaker for me. It’s a good mask that is hydrating, brightening, and cooling. I did experience some redness in my cheeks but this is common for me when using products with Vitamin C.

OVERTIME: NA

RATING: 4 / 5

REVIEW | SKINFOOD : Black Sugar Perfect Splash Mask

LEMONDROP GLOW REVIEW: SKINFOOD Black Sugar Splash mask; Kbeauty

Hey, Everyone! I hope you feeling amazing.

Today, we are reviewing the SKINFOOD, Black Sugar Perfect Splash Mask. This product was sent to be by Skinfood for review and consideration. So without further ado, let’s get into it!

PRODUCT INFO

BRAND: SKINFOOD

PRODUCT NAME: Black Sugar Perfect Splash Mask

SIZE: 6.76oz

PRICE: $26 from Ulta

LINK: https://www.ulta.com/black-sugar-perfect-splash-mask?productId=xlsImpprod18601057

INGREDIENT LIST: This listing comes from the Ulta Website listed above.
Water, Glycerin, Sucrose, Butylene Glycol, Gluconolactone, Rice Ferment Filtrate (Sake), 1,2-Hexanediol, Ppg-26-Buteth-26, Sodium Citrate, Fragrance, Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Caramel, Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Hizikia Fusiforme Extract, Propanediol.

PRODUCT CLAIMS: The brand claims that this product can moisturize, balance, exfoliate and provide nutrients to the skin in 10-seconds.

PACKAGING: The product comes in a durable plastic bottle. The cap is a twist-off style which can make it a little difficult to maneuver in the shower (or maybe i’m just that lazy).

SCENT: Smells sweet and a little chemical-y

FEEL: It’s scented brown water. Immediately after use, skin does feel soft and hydrated but effects are short lived.

HOW TO: You can use this product in two different ways depending on the amount of effort you would like to put in that day.

  1. Classic Method: After cleansing,  put a cap full of the product in to a (clean) sink full of water or a large bowl full of water and splash the water on to the face 10 to 15 times. Pat in excess water. Follow-up with regular skincare routine.

  2. Streamline Method: In the shower, put a cap full of the product on to damp skin then splash your face 10 to 15 times with water. Follow-up with regular skincare routine.

Always avoid getting the product into your eyes and mouth.

OVERTIME

I’ve used this product 3 to 4 times a week for the last 3 weeks or so. Let’s compare my experience to the claims.

  1. Moisturizing and balancing: At first the mask does moisturize the skin, but I still needed to mist my skin right after my shower or my skin would get very dry. I’m not a scientist, but as a consumer… I felt this completely missed the mark.

  2. Exfoliation: Personally, I didn’t see a difference in my skin. This could be because I am already an regular user of Mandelic Acid, an AHA (Alphahydroxy Acid). However, according to this article from THE CUT, PHAs (polyhydroxy acids) are far more gentle as an exfoliant and don’t increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun. The article also states that PHAs “fight glycation… which weakens your skin’s collagen and elastin.” I am interested in PHAs in general… but this product didn’t seem to deliver these type of results for my skin.

SKINFOOD BLACK SUGAR SPLASH MASK; KBEAUTY

RATING: 3 / 5

It’s interesting and enjoyable to use..This product may also be good for individuals with younger skin, those who have extremely sensitive skin, or those trying chemical exfoliation for the first time.I’ll mostly likely use it up, but I wouldn’t repurchase it.

My go to product for chemical exfoliation is the Dr. WU Intensive Renewal Toner With Mandelic Acid.  

If you’ve made it to the end, thank you so much. Seriously. I mean it.
