I am not a big user of the ‘eff’ word but today I want to start this post expressing how ‘unfuckwithable’ I feel right now. According to Urban Dictionary, Unfuckwithable is a state of mind “when you are truly at peace and in touch with yourself, and nothing anyone says or does bothers you, and no negativity or drama can touch you.” It feels nice to be untouchable by negative vibes, doesn’t it? I feel so much at peace right now that even kids howling right under my window do not irritate me anymore. Jeez! Have I achieved Nirvana? Nah. I feel nice probably because I got some great shots for my Bookstagram account and cannot wait to update my profile.
Coming to the subject of this post, I recently tried The Face Shop Aloe Mask and I must say I am happy with the results. The last few masks that I tried did not fully live up to my expectations and were disappointing. But the Aloe Mask reinstated my faith in face masks. Here are my reasons why I liked this mask so much.
Name: The Face Shop Aloe Mask
Price: ₹100/- for 1 sheet mask
What does it claim?
The Aloe Mask is drenched in serum that moisturises and soothes sensitive skin.
How to use?
Wash your face with a mild cleanser and pat it dry. Using a cotton ball gently rub a toner over your face that will help refine your skin texture. Remove the mask from its packet and place it on your face. Remove the mask (down to up direction) after 10-15 minutes and gently massage the solution left on the skin and leave it on till it dries on your face. DO NOT wash it off as your skin needs to absorb the serum. The serum may feel sticky at first but don’t worry it will dry after some time.
Does it fulfil its claim?
The mask comes in a green pouch. The mask is a white cotton sheet soaked in a colourless serum. I first washed my face, applied my regular toner and let it dry. The serum has a very faint flowery scent. As always, I tore the eye hole to fit my eye before placing the mask on my face. I left the mask on for around 30 minutes before taking it off. I then massaged the leftover serum all over my face and neck and let it dry overnight. The serum is extremely light on the skin and gets absorbed quickly. It does not feel greasy like other serums. After I washed off the serum next morning, not only did my skin look radiant it also looked a tone lighter. The brand does not claim to lighten skin but that was just how it worked for me. My skin is oily and gets dull easily but that didn’t happen for at least a few hours after using this mask as my skin looked fresh and radiant.
What’s good about it?
Lightens the skin
Brightens the skin
Moisturises the skin
What’s not so good about it?
I give The Face Shop Aloe Mask 4.5 out of 5 rating. This hydrating mask effectively moisturises the skin without making it oily. Do give it a try if you are looking for a good moisturising mask.
