The Water Bomb Jelly Mask – Whitening by BERRISOM was the least horrendous from all of the three masks that I’ve tried from the water bomb jelly series. It gives zero whitening or brightening. In case you are doubting wether to try this mask series, I would strongly advise against doing so.

My experience:

First of all, the packaging is nice and clear. It has all the necessary descriptions available in english and an easy opening. Once you open the bag you are knocked out by the strong scent of the gel. And by strong I mean very strong. I can live with strongly scented masks but not with these water bomb jelly maks. All of them have kind of similar scent that is verging chemical citronella/artificial lemon fragrance and something very sweet and fruity.

After you get used to the scent (joking, you never will), it’s time to get the sheet out. It comes out with a big blob of pinkish jelly attached to it. But once jelly contacts your skin, it starts melting down into more watery consistency and eventually dripping down the chin. As for the fit and adherence of the mask, both are excellent. The fabric of this mask series is made of the similar synthetic material that is used in Blithe masks. So what about the results?

Each of the masks in this series are made to hydrate your skin. And they are pretty good at doing so. Unfortunately they are too overpriced for the results. They deliver very little to my dehydrated skin.  The claim of 120 hours of moisture is far fetched.  I’d say 8-12 hours at most and then you need to consider some other mask. No any whitening/brightening results spotted. Will I be buying it again? No.

I don’t want to sound like a nagging Nancy but this entire series is a huge fail from the brand.
