Review: Balea Aqua Tuchmaske (hydrating sheet mask)14:26
I just have to make a separate blog post about this mask. Usually I never review such cheap one-use products, but this one is a complete star. I'll just admit that most of Balea stuff don't really get me excited, so I was very surprised how much I liked this.
Since I've been seeing those sheet masks all over the internet, I also wanted to give it a try. I saw that Balea had one for hydrating the skin and I gave it a go. It costs only 0.99€.
It's one sheet mask and it comes in this plastic bag. It's suppose to hydrate and pick up dull skin. It contains algal extract, almond oil and rose hip oil.
The ingredients list.
When you take the sheet out, you immediately notice that it's really wet. Some moisture even stays on the bottom of the bag.
I find that it fits nicely on my face, but the eye opening could have been wider. It's so wet that it sticks on the face and doesn't move. It feels like a mixture of gel and water to me. It's really smooth and slippery, but not in any way like a cream. More like a hydrating gel. I leave it on for as long as I have time to and it does a good job of hydrating the skin. It's also pretty cool because of the water, so it's also a bit cooling.
When I take the mask off I'm left with a lot of product on my skin and it says to just massage the rest of it into the skin. It's all very cooling and hydrating and it feels lovely on the skin in those summer days.
I feel like my skin did feel a lot more hydrated after I used this and the proof was another day when I woke up with nourished skin. I've mentioned in one of my previous posts that I recently had problems with very dry and irritated skin. As my last solution I used this mask (because I already used it once before and I really liked it). I swear my skin was perfect the next day. Yes, I did use some other products a few days before trying to combat the dryness, but this one did the last trick and it turned my skin back to normal.
Here you can see how the skin looked like before I put the mask on (with nothing on) and how it looked like after I took the mask off.
Think I'm done convincing you. It's 0.99€, just try it and do let me know how you like it. If you have problems with dry skin this is perfect and it's a great pamper product for when you're in that kind of mood.
