SNP Fresh Vita Brightening Two-Step Mask made by the brand Shining Nature Purity or SNP for short is an outstanding two step sheet mask with great skin brightening results. I love it! The packaging of it and the way it works on my skin. Keeping ingredients and the mask and vitamin C essence apart is somewhat innovative and does work great in any circumstances. It impressed me so much that I went and splurged for  a 10-pack 🙂

My experience:

SNP Fresh Vita Brightening Two-Step Mask has been a wonderful addition to my skin care routine. The packaging is smart and consists two separate pouches. First pouch contains the dry sheet mask infused with vitamin C and second one the vitamin rich essence. Once you fold the pouch in three you can push essence into the section with the mask which will activate vitamin C. In order to make sure that mask gets entirely saturated, wait for 10 minutes and lay the mask flat. I prefer sticking it into the fridge for extra cooling sensation.

 

The sheet itself is made of thin fabric that is a bit stiff but considering how effective this mask is on my skin, I am willing to skip my complaints. The packaging is sturdy and colorful, it screams "summer" and makes me miss the sunshine a bit. Essence in the pouch is viscous and has gel-like texture. It is transparent and smells of citruses. The fit and adherence of the mask to my face is extremely good. Mask doesn't fall off my face and I am able to do my household chores not wasting my time on laying down.

 

Wearing time is around 20 minutes and by the end of it my skin feels like it gets a bit sensitive. It doesn't happen every time I use it, but 3 out of 4 times I get sensitized skin after removing the mask. I assume that's because of the high potency of vitamin C in the mix. Essence absorbs for about 15 minutes leaving zero tackiness behind. I love to use my ROVECTIN Cica Cream after using this sheet mask as it quickly makes the sensitivity bounce back to normal. If you want to use it in AM routine, you may do so but don't skip on SPF afterwards.

 

As for the results, my skin is bright, even in tone and gas that "from-within" glow look. I love everything it does to my skin. It is a great hydrating mask and makes me look more awake. I'd recommend it to anyone who can tolerate their vitamin C well. If you have a couperose (widened capillaries/red skin), you'd love it as well. On the other hand, people with very sensitive skin or not accustomed to vitamin C should be careful and stick with 10 minute wearing time. As I've mentioned before, I got my 10-pack in and I am not afraid to use it 😀
