My experience:
contents

Rose is one of my most favorite ingredients in my skin care routine. That’s why I didn’t hesitate when purchasing the entire 10-pack from the local online shop. the mask comes in a cute foil-type packaging with the tiger face on it. This particular mask is targeted for the wrinkle care and more drier skin types.

Today my face is feeling very dry after my daily bike rides to work and it was so windy that I felt that my skin is nearly cracking from the cold and the wind. I immediately decided that this is the best time for this review as this mask immediately returns my skin to it’s normal state. The sheet itself has a nice fit but it feels a bit stiff on the skin due to the print/paint on it. One side is definitely more rough and the other one remains soft so be careful and apply the softer surfaced side onto your face.

The essence is clear and runny like in ampoule. It has a rose scent to it that is very mild and fresh and does not give you the “granny perfume” vibe at all as some skin care products do (ekhm-ekhm such as in a lot of Lancome products). To the touch it feels like it is a bit oily but after everything is absorbed into the skin I am left with a nice dewy yet soft and non tacky finish. When it comes to the colder days this is a good base product for under the make-up even for the oilier skin. In the summer it can be too much for that purpose and I use it as an evening mask.

Once the mask is on your face don’t forget to take some silly selfies or scare some of your family members. My daughter for is loving this print so much that she roars at me and runs after me when I wear it. I absolutely adore the 20-minute play time with her while I’me having this sheet mask on.  Once removed my skin is visually brighter and more even in tone. this mask has some effective soothing results on my skin while making it look glowy. I let the essence absorb for 10 minutes and proceed with the rest of my make-up or skin care depending on which half of the day I use it on.  Is it worth trying? Yes, if you love the clean rose scent, if your skin is dry and angry at you, if you want to have some sheet masking fun and definitely when you have kids who you can amuse with it 🙂

+ Paraben and sulfate free formulation

+ Good overall fit on my face frame
+ Fun for kids and selfie times

MISSHA Rose Flower Sleeping Mask

I’ve been testing few sleeping masks in the course of last 1,5 months and want to share my thoughts on the Rose Flower Sleeping Mask by MISSHA. To me this is a perfect sleeping mask for the summer because it is so moisturizing yet light on the skin.

 Claims from the manufacturer:

❇ Sleeping mask containing damask rose water that is excellent for providing moisture to skin to help make skin soft like flower leaves while sleeping.
❇ Containing 10% of damask rose water from France which is excellent for skin soothing, it provides soft care for the sensitive skin that becomes exhausted during the day time.
❇ With gel texture containing full moisture, it plumps the dry skin with hydration.
❇ Soft rose fragrance relieves you while you are sleeping.

Directions from the manufacturer:

At the last step of skin care, apply an appropriate amount, avoiding eye and lip area, and take your sleep. The next morning, wash your face with lukewarm water.

Ingredients:

Water (Aqua), Rosa Damascena Flower Water, Glycerine, Cyclopentasiloxane, propaandiol, Dimethicone, ethylhexyl palmitaat, glycereth-26, zoete thee (Framboos) Leaf Extract, Rosa Damascena Flower Extract, postelein extract, Aloë barbadensisbladextract, Chamomilla recutita { Matricaria) extract, Polysorbaat 20, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate / VPCopolymer, dimethiconol, Dimethicone / Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Carbomer, triethanolamine, 1,2-hexaandiol, allantoïne, PEG-10 Dimethicone / Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspoymer, tocoferylacetaat, butyleenglycol, natriumhyaluronaat , Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, fenoxyethanol, Fragrance (parfum), Orange 4, Red 33

My experience:

From all of the new sleeping packs that I’ve been testing I reach for this mask the most. It has a very nice consistency and very natural scent that knocks me out into a good sleep.

This mask is a gel formula that is semi-transparent and has a light pink tint to it. It is not too thick nor too thin, just what I like in my sleeping masks. Once I apply it onto my face it transforms into serum-like gel which is very easy to spread over the face and you only need a little of product to cover the entire face. The fragrance is the bomb in this one! Very light and airy and doesn’t cause any headache.

What I love about this mask is how quickly it is absorbed by my skin.  Within 5 minutes I am left with no trace of the product on my face and there is no tackiness either. I appreciate it a lot because with the current warm weather, my face enjoys the light and fresh feeling this mask leaves on my skin.

Upon wakening there is no greasy film on my skin I can just simply rinse what’s left with my morning. cleanser and I am good to go. My skin always feels rested and hydrated. It is good for every-day use and the 105 ml jar is going to last me quite a while. Very happy with this new addition by MISSHA. They don’t seem to disappoint me on the sleeping mask front 🙂

Pros:
+ Paraben, Sulfate, Alcohol free
+ Best used for oily, combination and normal skin

The Cream Shop Rose Oil Overnight Gel Mask

If you are familiar with the Body Shop Bouncy Sleeping Mask then this The Cream Shop Rose Oil Overnight Gel Mask review is definitely for you!

Claims from the manufacturer:

❇ A sleep-in gel mask enriched with rose oil and its depuffing, anti-inflmmatory properties, reveals well-rested, silky skin even if you’re running on minimal hours of sleep!
❇ Made in Korea (poids net wt. 2.36oz/70g)

Directions from the manufacturer:

massage an even layer over clean, dry skin before bedtime. Concentrate on face, neck, or any areas that need extra moisture. Allow  to work overnight, no need to rinse. Wake up to hydrated, noticeably brighter skin!

Ingredients:

Water, Dipropylene Glycol, PEG-240/HDI Copolymer Bis-Decyltetradeceth-20 Ether, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, PEG-100 Stearate, Macadamia Integrifolia (Macadamia) Nut Oil, Dimethicone, Glyceryl Stearate, Glycereth-26, Caprylyl Glycol, Allantoin, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Caprylhydroxamic Acid, Adenosine, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Butylene Glycol, Disodium EDTA, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Hyaluronate, CI 16185

My experience:

Who has ever tried The Body Shop Drops Of Youth™ Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask? If your answer is yes then you will immediately understand what consistency does this Rose Oil Overnight Gel Mask by The Cream Shop has!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is it gel, gellato, jelly or cream? I still have no idea how they do it but it seems to have it all. Once you dig into the jar it separates like jelly with sharp edges and all. After a minute or so you don’t see the dent from your scooping in the jar. The surface gets perfectly smooth making it look like the product is new and hasn’t been touched.

 

 

 

 

 

Same on the skin. Upon the application it first goes on like old good clumpy silicone kit. Once you try to spread it out only more clumps appear. Then it starts to acts like cream leaving the white’ish residue on the skin. Once yo rub it in for some more time and the formula is heated by the skin it turns into thick gel(Gosh, too many words to explain, please see attached images).

The scent of it is a bit more of artificial rose. It doesn’t give you a headache but you definitely will think it is masking something that was put into the jar. after vigorous rubbing into my face and 15 minutes of drying time I am left with the sticky film on my skin. No matter if I use a thin or a thick layer, the end result is tacky-yucky.

Once I get up the net morning, the tackiness is nearly gone and my face feels plumped, hydrated and looks yummy. The hydrating results last on me for an entire day which I like but I doubt I will be purchasing it again. It takes too much time to apply and I can’t get passed the tacky town it leaves on my skin. Same as with The Body Shop one, it is just not my cup of tea. It does good things for the skin though, so if you are a fan of such bouncy masks, get it.

Pros:
+ Alcohol, paraben and sulfate free formula
+ Suitable for all skin types
+ Contains adenosine and vitamine E
+ Somewhat pleasant rose scent that is not overwhelming

Cons:
– Leaves a tacky film on the face
– Smallest amount of product I’ve seen so far amongst Korean sleeping masks
– Wicked consistency
– Long absorption time
– Contains silicone and fragrance

Where to buy:
❇ NL and BE: TKmaxx shops
❇ Internationally: Available at thecremeshop, amazon and  ebay
❇ Price is 11-15€ for 70g depending on where you buy it
