Masqueology is a Korean sheet mask brand that I wrote about before Christmas. I recommended them as stocking stuffers or affordable small gifts. They’re available at Walmart, and at $2.50 a piece, they’re a really good deal. They have a pricier version sold at Dermstore.
I’ve come across another Masqueology mask that I wanted to tell you about. It’s Masqueology Collagen Hydrogel Goldmask. (I just had to photograph the gold mask on top of The New Yorker’s recent Oscars magazine cover!)
It’s the first two piece mask I’ve ever used. Like any sheet mask, you gently unfold it and place it on your face and it sticks. I actually think the two piece mask is easier to apply than a one piece. It gave me the same terrifyingly hideous look while wearing it as other sheet masks, but maybe not quite as bad because it’s transparent? No it’s still an awful look.
The mask itself is made out of a synthetic mesh, gel-like material that I truly prefer to a paper or fabric mask because it was so soft. It also stuck to my face quite well, especially since I wasn’t lying down. I was afraid it might slide off, but it stayed where it was supposed to.
Masqueology Collagen Hydrogel Goldmask felt so cooling and relaxing. Ideally, one should lie down and take it easy for the 20 minutes that it’s on. But I had a lot to do so I went about my business. After the 20 minutes was up, I removed the mask, discarded it and I left the remaining gel on my face. My skin felt very refreshed and looked brighter.
The mask was saturated with a full ounce of concentrated advanced ingredients. The key ingredients are:
- hydrolyzed collagen: keeps skin supple, helps prevents wrinkles, hydrates and firms, improves elasticity and increases collagen production
- niacinamide: one of my favorite ingredients to help reduce the appearance of dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, prevents hyperpigmentation
- adenosine: anti-inflammatory, penetrates deeply into skin to reduce wrinkles and repair skin damage
- gold: detoxifies, improves and nourishes skin cells, stimulates collagen and elastin production.
Masqueology Collagen Hydrogel Goldmask was a real treat. It’s a mask I would be happy to use on a regular basis to see if I would get more of the longer term benefits. Have you tried any of the Masqueology masks yet?
