PACKage I Love Myself makeup boosting mask has a lovely bright brick red packaging and it just screams wow because how simplistic it looks at the first glance. What hides inside is nonetheless unique and delivers a great message to the user. The words: "I love myself, I am more than beautiful" are printed on the sheet making which is lovely touch from the brand.
Sheet is very thin and soaked in essence. The softness levels are beyond this world. One downside though. I had big troubles unfolding the sheet. IT got stuck to itself and turned out to be a big messy application. Since the essence is very runny, the faster your application goes, less droop there is. Unfortunately, my droop was massive. I'd rather see this mask with the plastic or cellulose backing for ease of application. I am happy to report that fit and adherence are amazing.
Once it is applied on the face you may notice light alcohol scent but after 2 minutes it is gone. There is mild tingling sensation present for first 5 minutes as well which comes more from exfoliation ingredients rather than from the alcohol. BTW don't worry, alcohol is not included into the mix . Essence is very watery and transparent. It feels a bit slippery and absorbs very fast. The entire wearing time for me including somewhat time consuming application was 20 minutes total. Plenty for AHA/BHA mask.
The end result was amazing. My skin is feeling plump, hydrated and soft. Essence was non greasy nor left any tactile left-over on my skin. I love how well it sunk into my skin. This mask is potentially great for under the make-up. I didn't want to apply any after masking. My skin looked more even in tone and had a nice rosy glow to it. I loved the way it looked so I used my moisturizer and SPF and was good to go. A little NB for you guys, any AHA/BHA/PHA product requires SPF application if you use your exfoliating mask in daylight. No one want skin damage so stay sharp and don't be lazy with re-applying your sunscreen. As for the recommendations -> all skin types would be friends with it except people very sensitive skin, solely because of the acids.
