Holla beauties! Weekends, especially the ones when it’s pouring all day, are the best the best days to sit back and pamper yourself. I have been neglecting my health of late (like not drinking enough water, not getting enough rest and so on ) and as a result, my skin was looking pretty dull. So, I wanted to treat my skin (and also the little kiddo in me) first thing this weekend. And what’s a better way to do so than sheet masking while listening to your favorite song on repeat mode? I tried the new Mond’Sub Pearl face and neck mask this weekend and boy, I was certainly impressed by the results.
As the name suggests, this is a revitalizing mask. It also claims to lighten, brighten, firm and lift. The pearl extracts which are a great source of deep sea minerals along with seaweed extracts, vitamins, amino acids and hyaluronic acid work wonders to hydrate the skin. Ascorbic acid and the other actives present in the lotion bring about a brightening, bleaching, anti-ageing and anti-wrinkle effect on the skin.
This mask is quite unique compared to the other sheet masks that I have used. They call it a 3D mask because it covers the entire face and neck along with the under-chin area and also has hanging ears. Also, this comes with a vitamin C essence that needs to be massaged into the skin after rinsing off the mask.
The mask weighs 35g and the lotion weighs 5g. It’s priced at INR 250. You can buy a pack of three at Amazon for a discounted price of INR 299.
I would encourage you to go through the list of ingredients before you go ahead and try the product because some of us might be allergic to certain ingredients like lactobacillus. They recommend doing a patch test using a bit of the slimy gel behind your ears to check if that irritates your skin. I have dry and non-sensitive skin and it worked just fine for me.
When I opened the pack and pulled the mask out, I got a lot of the gel onto my hands. It was quite easy to wear the sheet mask though my face was a little too small for the mask. The dimensions of this mask are good enough to suit a variety of face shapes and sizes. What impressed me the most were the flaps that would go under the chin and on the neck. It’s a pity that the masks we use, cater only to the skin on the face and the skin under the chin (it rhymes!) which is as delicate as the facial skin remains mostly neglected.
The gel is slimy and has a hint of fragrance. The gel gets easily absorbed by the skin once you rub it in gently and makes the skin feel hydrated instantly. It feels like one of those hydration boosting glacial/spring water creams. I loved how it felt on my hands.
After I smoothed the mask sheet on my face, I kept it on for almost twenty minutes. Then I gently rubbed in the excess gel into my skin. I think the mask did everything that it claims. After a few more minutes I washed off the gel with tepid water and patted my face dry. My face was already feeling plumped up with moisture. Then I squeezed out a few drops of the Vitamin C essence and applied it to my face and neck. It’s a transparent fluid with a runny kind of consistency. This too got absorbed in pretty quickly and the result was a way smoother and softer skin than the week before. I noted very significant changes in the appearance of my skin in terms of smoothness and hydration after the application of the mask. I cannot say about the anti-ageing benefits since I haven’t used this for long enough.
This morning I woke up with the softness intact. The Vitamin C essence is a wonderful addition to this mask. I bet you can count on Hyaluronic acid to keep your skin’s moisture balance well balanced.
Overall, it’s a total value-for-money product. I’m soon gonna restock.
Let’s quickly recapitulate the pros:

Let’s look at the cons now:

All said and done, I’ll let you enjoy your masking time now. Do let me know your experience if you have used this product. If you haven’t, do give it a shot.
