I knew when I first saw this product last Halloween that eventually I would have to try it, I mean come on, zombies for the win, but I never thought I would actually love it as much as I do. Initially most of my adoration came from freaking out friends & family with some pretty epic photos...
But then I was pleasantly surprised to find that this wasn't just another gimmicky product. Unfortunately I haven't found a bevy of reviews or information in english on this product, so I'm going to just go with the description from Yes Style where I purchased this from:
Cheekily-named skin-tightening face pack lifts up sagging facial contours and dispenses a generous dose of moisture that gives skin a dewy finish while improving elasticity. The active ingredients of egg white and aloe vera extracts purify, tighten and revitalize skin, greatly improving and refining texture after every use. To use, mix pack with activator until a thick consistency is achieved. Apply solution to face, avoiding the eye and mouth areas, and leave on for 10-15 minutes before washing off.
And also a pretty good review I did find, which includes an ingredients list here at Lady Fox Makeup.
The pack includes sixteen separate sealed 'servings' of mask powder, an applicator brush and a bottle of liquid activator. As mentioned, I purchased mine via YesStyle who at the time had it retailing at just under $41 AUD. I think you could track this down cheaper on ebay or sites such as GMarket, but at around $2.56 per mask I wasn't really too fussed with the price I paid.
I will admit it is a little bit of a hassle mixing up your own mask, and to be honest I was so paranoid about putting too much activator in with the powder the first couple of times I may have erred on the side of caution and under-mixed. The side of the activator bottle is marked with the required amount per mask, but still... paranoid. I also found when I mixed this up there was a slight mock eggy smell. I didn't really bother me too much though. Once mixed you paint it all over yo face, and forget to rinse the brush which then later sets like rock. But before that pisses you off you get to enjoy the feeling of your face becoming immovable like a finely botoxed celebrity afraid of aging gracefully.
Moving your face when the mask has set is probably the best thing ever. You can cause all sorts of weird cracks which frankly look so awesomely gross with the right selfie filter.
After rinsing this off with warm water my face felt alot more smoother and toned, it also looked brighter and my pores appeared more refined. The effects last as long as you would expect most masks to, a few hours at best, but I've noticed that using this once or twice a week has contributed to my overall skin appearance. I have noticed on a couple of occasions I have developed like one pimple the next day, which I suppose has to do with the mask drawing out impurities in the skin, but this usually heals within a day and as it's only happened like two times it's not enough to take away from the overall satisfaction I feel using this mask.
Would I recommend it? Would I buy it again? That's a yes on both counts. It's a nice fun mask that also delivers some great skincare benefits, however I would recommend using once a week for optimal benefits.
That way you can become a stunning beauty & score yourself a hot man in uniform....
