Papa Recipe Bombee Black Honey Mask Pack is a true gem amongst the sheet masks with propolis. It has such a lovely texture essence and it works so great on my skin that I try to keep it for more special occasions in order to enjoy using it each and every time. The sheet mask is so soft and my face is looking amazing the next day after every single use.

Papa Recipe Bombee Black Honey Mask Pack is my 2nd favorite mask from Papa Recipe. The all time favorite is the Rose Gold Honey mask. They go for the win with minor differences and if I am not willing to invest more money into the Rose gold version, I opt for the Black Honey mask. Everyone knows by now that if you are looking for some glow for their skin, propolis is the ingredient to turn to. the entire Papa Recipe range is based on propolis, Manuka honey, royal jelly and a lot of moisturizing elements in their skin care and sheet masks range.
I love how rich and nourishing this sheet mask is. My skin is feeling very happy and soothed the next day. As many of you may know, honey is a natural antibacterial remedy helping with acne, it aids at retaining moisture and promotes wound healing. Everything about Papa Recipe sheet masks is wonderful starting from their luxurious packaging and ending up with top quality content (sheet and essence). Tencel cupra black sheet is so soft and supple that it doesn't need any slits on the outer perimeter of the mask making it adhere to the face flawlessly. The fit is awesome too.
Essence is very liquid, yet has some viscosity, resembling watered down honey. It is semi-opaque and grey in color thank's to it's ingredients. Fluid is teeny-tiny bit tacky when you touch it with your fingers and smells of something sweet. I would not call it entirely honey smell but you do recognize honey in the fragrance. To me it smells like something fermented, like kombucha with honey. It is very pleasant fragrance. Once on the skin it absorbs very well. The wearing time for this mask was 25 minutes on my skin. Upon that, the remaining essence was absorbing into my skin for another 10 minutes. The final result was a dewy finish with light tackiness. Nothing to be afraid of.
The Bombee Black Honey Mask Pack made my skin instantly smoother, well hydrated and soothed it at the same time. After the first use I was so surprised that I immediately ordered all other masks to test out and after doing some picky masking I ended up having 2 favorites as I've already mentioned, that I use 2-4 times a month depending on the occasion. I do prefer it in my PM skin care routine but it doesn't mean you won't be able to use it in the morning. In terms of the long-term results. This mask definitely reduces the amount of pimples showing up on the skin. All the Papa Recipe Bombee Mask Packs are sensitive and acne skin friendly but this one is most effective against breakouts.
