These animal cutie masks that I received from Skin18.com are indeed very cute. I received the Whitening Aqua – Panda, Relaxing Charcoal & Aloe – Monkey, Anti-Wrinkle Collagen – Tiger, and Anti-Aging – Horse. Besides the cuteness factor, I will be commenting on the fit as well as the effectiveness of the masks. Overall, the fit of these masks are a bit small. The eye holes are small, and it doesn’t reach to the hairline or edge of chin. Because of the cute animal prints on the masks, this made the masks a little tough to smooth flatly on the face. There is plenty of essence that these masks stay on the face with no problems and won’t slip off. As with sheet masks. Directions are to wash face cleanly, use toner before mask application, and leave mask on for the recommended time.
Whitening Aqua – Panda
Notable ingredients is hyaluronic acid to retain moisture for dry skin. I did not detect a strong fragrance. The mask provided a cool sensation. Afterward, my face did feel hydrated, tightened, brightened but left my face feeling slightly tacky.
Relaxing Charcoal & Aloe – Monkey
Notable ingredients are Charcoal & Aloe for soothing and whitening. No strong fragrance detected on this mask. Cooling sensation while wearing the mask, and left my face feeling plump and hydrated.
Anti-Wrinkle Collagen – Tiger
Notable ingredients are collagen extract to promote elasticity, as well as replenish moisture and refresh dry, sagging skin. Also felt a cooling sensation while wearing the mask. Face felt tightened and pores appeared smaller afterward.
Anti-Aging Horse Oil – Horse
Notable ingredients include horse oil to improve wrinkles and skin elasticity. I did notice a subtle fragrance that dissipates quickly. I did experience a cooling sensation while wearing the mask as well as a bit of itchiness around the chin area within 5 minutes of wearing, but it wasn’t too irritating that I had to remove it before the allotted time. The mask left my skin tightened with a more luminous appearance.
These masks do come with a warning to avoid use if one has blemishes, pimples, irritated or sunburned skin, as these may get even more aggravated, due to itchiness, redness, or even cause the face to get swollen. One time use of these masks would not be an accurate representation of the efficacy of the claims, and therefore, I cannot comment whether the anti-aging, anti-wrinkle claims have merit. I can only comment that the ingredients in the masks may help with those claims.
I would like to thank Skin18USA for the opportunity to be a part of their Skin18Challenge Blogger’s program. You can find them on Instagram here, and their website. They should still be accepting applications for this bloggers program.
