The first time I’ve purchased this mask was approximately three years ago. It instantly turned into my favorite because of what it does to my skin. There are other sheet masks in the Beauty Trip series from the same brand which I also tried over the years but the Seaweed and Omega 3 one remains my favorite! I do have one problem with it. The sheet of this mask has a moderate fit and adherence to my face. If this would have been one of those thin type of masks it would be my nr. 1 mask of all times.
The serum in this mask is very watery and transparant. There is a light scent to it and to me it smells like some of those fermented ingredients that are so good for the skin. I do get the seaweed vibe from it too.
I keep this mask on for full 20 minutes and use the leftover essence to keep the skin on my knees and elbows moisturized. Yet again, it works like magic! Once the the sheet is off my face I pat the leftover essence in and let my face air dry. I do feel that there is a residue left on my skin but it is not oily nor tacky. I would not advice to use this sheet mask before you plan to apply make-up, it would not hold. Instead try using it right before going to sleep.
Every time I do this mask my skin is somehow more toned up, wrinkles are smoothed and overall appearance is more revitalized and healthy looking. My skin is still looking excellent the next morning. I do feel that when I use it before going to bed my skin starts to retain moisture better on the next day and I get less sebum and oil. I am very satisfied with these masks and would advise you to try them out if you have oily acne prone skin!
