Skincare Sunday – Skinesque Brightening Charcoal Mask

February 10, 2019


When the third of four waves of snow in the last couple of weeks hits your city, you stay inside, watch The Americans, do laundry and mask! Today, thanks to a gift from @jillshellum, Iโ€™m testing out the @skinesque Brightening Charcoal Mask ($7.50 for a single-use on their website).
What it claims:
๐Ÿ”˜ Gentle Foaming Cleanser (1.5g): deeply cleanses and removes impurities for clear and bright skin
๐Ÿ”˜ Hydra Essence (1.5g): formulated with adenosine and sodium hyaluronate to retain moisture, promotes collagen formation and reduces the appearance of fine lines
๐Ÿ”˜ Brightening+ Charcoal Mask (1 sheet): crafted with oak tree charcoal to deeply purify and detoxify skin, while also delivering essential ingredients for brightening and hydration
๐Ÿ”˜ Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
๐Ÿ”˜ Reduces dark spots
๐Ÿ”˜ Brightens dull skin
๐Ÿ”˜ Hydrates skin
๐Ÿ”˜ Removes toxins and impurities
๐Ÿ”˜ Paraben-free and sulfate-free
๐Ÿ”˜ Tip: Use in the morning before makeup application
๐Ÿ”˜ Cruelty-free Korean skincare for the busy, modern woman
My experience:
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป I enjoyed the cleanser. The packet contained more than enough to cleanse my entire face and neck and didnโ€™t leave my skin feeling too dry or tight.
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป There was also enough essence to cover my entire face and neck easily, but I wasnโ€™t wowed by this step. I am sure with ongoing use I may feel differently, but upon first impression, itโ€™s not a life-changing product.
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป The mask is well saturated, which is always preferred over the alternative. However, it doesnโ€™t fit ideally and thatโ€™s a big drawback for me.
My verdict:
Although this 3-step process made my skin feel cleansed, pampered and hydrated, I donโ€™t think it was impressive enough to repurchase – especially for the price.
Whatโ€™s your favorite sheet mask? I just have yet to find one that I canโ€™t live without and would love your recommendations!
