23 Years Old Cocoon Gold Silky Mask is an outstanding sheet mask delivering what is promised on the packaging 100% and beyond. I am new to this brand as it is hard to het here in EU. Luckily it was on sale on one of my favorite shopping websites so I grabbed. pack of 3 fro 10 euros. The sheet mask comes in an oval packaging that is black and gold with. huge image of the cocoon on it. I am pretty sure that JM Solution used their design as an inspiration fro their products.
When in tomes to the contents, the mask inside is made of somewhat synthetic fiber that is very absorbent and drenched in watery beige-yellow hue liquid. I was expecting the essence to be sticky and gooey as other cocoon type masks but luckily it was not the case. The essence smells very nice and is light to the touch. The texture of it resembles the classic hyaluronic acid ampoules.
Adherence and fit of the sheet are very good. It does come a bit short on my forehead but that's my anatomy and I am pretty sure 99% op human beings will not experience that issue. The wearing time is 20 minutes and you are left with hydrated and radiant skin within that short time span. In case yo wear it on summer months, cut the wearing time to 15 minutes to be on a safe side.
Now onto the results. I am positively surprised as how good my skin felt after this sheet mask. I applied it on toned skin without any in between ampoule steps and my skin was instantly rejuvenated as I would slam my heavy artillery of anti-aging components. No joke. I felt that my face was lifted, well hydrated, plumed and it had overall brighter more even tone. Alert to oily skin holders: use this in AM routine and the effects will last you well through-ought the day. There is zero tackiness or stickiness left on my skin, meaning it may not be entirely enough for people with dry skin type. As always, fragranced essence means caution for hypersensitive skin holders.
