By Wishtrend Hours-Long Moisturizing Gauze Sheet Mask is one of those masks that uses the lanseal fabric as it’s base making this mask very absorbant yet very itchy upon application. I’ve had issue with lanseal from other brands as well so that’s just not my favorite base for the mask.
Claims from the manufacturer:
The By Wishtrend Hours-Long Gauze Sheet Mask is a mask sheet that contains 30g of high concentration essence to maintain moisturizing effects for an extended time.
High functioning Lanseal fabric that is capable of absorbing a large amount of essence (absorption magnification of about 150 times). Maintains a long-lasting moisturizing effect compared to conventional mask sheets.

By Wishtrend Hours-Long Moisturizing Gauze Sheet Mask did not impress me at all. Don’t get me wrong, it is not bad at all. It just reminds me too much of a much more affordable yet as effective sheet mask from The Face Shop. I just’t don’t see that much difference between the two on my skin. So if you ask me did I like it? I’d say it is good for it’s purpose but why would I pay more if I have a more affordable alternative delivering the same results and more. Hence, my advise, try both gauze masks and see which one you like the most.
Wishtrend company is well known in Asia, US and Europe mainly for the COSRX and Dear Klair’s brands that it has created. The Wishtrend products under their company name are relatively new and the latest additions to their skin care products are the Hours-Long Moisturizing Gauze Sheet Mask and the Natural Vitamin 21.5 Enhancing Sheet Mask.
The gauze mask is made of the lanseal fabric and comes in 2-pieces for upper and lower face halves. The gauze-type of fabric is translucent and thick to the touch but it is an illusion because what you actually feel is the essence. Once the sheet is dry it becomes thin and flat. And itchy! Even though you can wear this mask for 40 full minutes, by the end of the wearing time my face gets red and agitated, especially along the edges of the cut-outs (under my nose and around the eyes). It always happens to me with the lanseal so I have to cut the wearing time right before I feel that the edges start to flatten due to the evaporation of the essence. I would not advise the lanseal gauze masks to anyone with sensitive skin.
The essence is a clear odorless gel with quite thick texture. It lays nicely on the skin and feels very soothing and cooling. Today my max wearing time was 25 minutes and there was still plenty of the essence left on the sheet that I didn’t want to throw away so I gave it a good squeeze and used the essence on dry areas on my body. It took around 10 minutes for it to soak into my skin entirely. the finish on my skin and body was somewhat tacky and glowy. I rolled my fingers over my skin and the residue was balling up which is never a good thing.
The fit and adherence of the sheet were superb but the essence in it let me down by a mile. My skin was left hydrated and felt nourished. Unfortunately there were no signs of brightening or evening out the skin tone. If I was the manufacturer I would consider focusing on reformulating the viscosity product. In terms of ingredients this mask is packed with nourishing, hydrating and anti-aging formulas which is admirable list. Unfortunately in it’s current state, this mask is not for me. I am glad I’ve only got a sample mask from the iHerb instead of grabbing a box deal from by Whishtrend’s website.
