THE ORCHID SKIN Flower Vital Mask is a lovely sheet mask that is meant to hydrate dull and dry skin. This mask contains fig and pomegranate extracts together with orchid and elderflower extract which are all rich in antioxidants and are benefiting all skin types. I like this mask a lot for basic daily needs. I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a healthy glow.

THE ORCHID SKIN Flower Vital Mask sheet is very soft making this mask super handy for those who prefer to stay active while wearing their sheet mask. I absolutely adore the packaging with girly characters on the front. The Flower Vital Mask is one of the 5 sheet masks presented in the Flower range. I will try to get my hands on all of these in order to review this brand for you.
Each mask from THE ORCHID SKIN Flower line has a thin tencell that is highly absorbent in nature. I love the fact that the packaging is super easy to open and there is a lot of essence in the pouch. The adherence and the fit are superb! My entire forhead is properly covered and the sheet doesn't bulge around my nose. There are extra slits cut around the perimeter of the eyes making it stick to your face even better. The essence is transparent and has a fruity-floral scent to it. Not good news for those who love their masks unfragranced. I usually close my eyes on that as most of them do not irritate my skin.
Texture of the essence is quite watery, something between light gel and ampoule. It does not drip which is very important for me. Once the mask is applied I did feel a strong cooling sensation. I could feel my skin drinking up the essence and relaxing at the same time. Very lovely for those who are looking for a cooling mask for after doing sports or a hot shower. The total wearing time for me was around 25 minutes which is above my expectations.
As for the effects on the skin, the most noticeable result for me was the cooling effect in combination with excellent hydration. My skin is more even in tone and the redness around my nose was vanished. After the essence has absorbed (+/- after 3 minutes), my skin had zero tackiness and a very nice glow to it. That kind of glow when people say you look radiant or when you use propolis ampoule from LGH :). I can not say it is overly plumping or firming upon one try but there were definitely some positive visible changes. For a final thought, it is extremely good for daily use. I would repurchase this one solely for using it through-ought summer as it is so cooling and lovely on my skin. One downside is that they are not easily available in many stores online. I got mine at LW shop and they are currently running them on sale for under 2 euros. YAY!
