SKINFOOD Beauty In A Food Mask – Horse Fat

SKINFOOD Beauty In A Food Mask – Horse Fat sheet mask is something very unusual I’ve stumbled across in last weeks. It was not expensive and I am not squeamish about the ingredient so I decided to give it a go.

My experience:

The biggest issue for me was the sheet. It allowed all the essence to drip down my chin so to me it felt more of a boob mask rather than a face mask. For the rest this mask turned out to be a pretty good one and worth buying again.

The mask comes in a orange packaging with horse’s head on the picture. The essence is enriched with horse oil/fat and I was very careful opening the package because I didn’t know what to expect. To my surprise the essence in the bag was fragranced with something herbal and flowery so there were no traces of any kind of animal smells. Essence itself was milky white and had a nice slip to it. After applying the mask on the face I kept it on for 20 minutes and then removed.

I can’t tell that much magic has happened but it was definitely not a bad experience. My face was well moisturized, it had a slight sheen to it leaning towards more oily finish. There ws no tackiness or stickiness to it. Once I woke up I saw that my skin was well moisturized and had a more even tone. I liked the look of it so I was running around doing my stuff with zero make-up on. I am intrigued by the horse fat ingredient and will be looking some more into it.

Summary:

Pros:
+ Pleasant scent and formula of the essence
+ Good skin rejuvenating results
