Of late, I have been fan of sheet masks. I got the chance to try Skin Republic’s face and neck masks. Here are my thoughts on it :
Stem Cell Plant Protein face mask
This face mask is meant to regenerate and revitalize skin with the help of plant stem cells. It is an anti aging mask, with added CoQ10 in it, which assists in maintaining a healthy vibrant skin. It is a disposable mask that can be used only once. The sheet mask is literally soaked in serum, which contains concentrated extracts that supply nutrients to the skin. I applied it on for 30 mins, after cleansing and toning my skin. The skin takes in a lot of the serum but once you remove the mask, there is still some left on the skin, which you can pat dry with your fingers. Also, you will find some serum left in the pack, which you can either apply on your neck or hands.
After using it, my skin felt incredibly hydrated and soft. I did the mask right before heading to bed, so the next day morning, my skin felt absolutely amazing. For best results, the mask should be used twice a week. In the long run, it helps to lift and tone the skin, smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles.
Price: AED 25 and available at selected Boots pharmacies across UAE.
Neck + Decolletage Repair mask
This is my first time trying a neck sheet mask. Our neck and decolletage shows signs of aging really fast. It’s important to take care of it just as how you take care of your face. This repairing mask is anti aging and made to deliver intense hydration to the delicate skin of the neck.
The first thing you notice when opening the pack is the smell. It’s absolutely refreshing and almost delicious!. It is infused with Rice bran, Mulberry and Liquorice to reduce the visible appearance of freckles and age spots. I am guessing it’s the smell of the Mulberry that gives this mask it’s amazing scent. I was sceptical about how the mask would fit but it’s made perfectly and fits very snugly onto the neck contours and decolletage.
Other ingredients in the mask are Aloe and Vitamin E that aids in intensely nourishing and restoring a youthful tone and texture to the skin. It’s anti aging properties come from Collagen and CoQ10, that helps tighten, plump and restore firmness. Some of the ingredients in this mask can make the skin more sensitive to sunlight. So, if you are stepping out in mornings, after using the mask, make sure you apply a broad spectrum sunscreen.
The mask should be applied to cleansed and dried skin, for a minimum of 20 minutes. Not only was it relaxing to feel the coolness of the sheet on my skin and to get enveloped in that awesome scent, it made my skin feel so hydrated and cared for. Definitely a mask that you should totally try out.
Price : AED 25
In both of the masks, the serum isn’t viscous but rather the perfect consistency to apply and spread on to the skin. It is perfect to use in winters when you skin is dehydrated and dry. The masks don’t slip off the skin. It’s designed well. I do recommend you try these masks.
Have you tried any masks from the Skin Republic?.
