Skinlite masks that I have recently used are the Firming Life Coenzyme Q-10 & Illuminating Arbutin Mask. Skinlite is a Korean brand but it can easily be found on western shores, fully packaged with English text too. It also says 100% Pulp on the front, but I don’t really believe it and I highly doubt it since that would most likely increase the cost of the masks. These are pretty standard everyday drugstore quality masks IMO.
Both mask come in a 18ml cute jar/bottle-shaped package. The mask sheets are very thin & ill-fitting! Really ill-fitting, just have a look how ugly it is. Due to it being somewhat thin it will rip very easily if you are not careful with it like I wasn’t. LOL The slits are horrible, you will most likely need to make cuts & adjusting for it to even fit mildly better. I really haate when there is eye & nose slits like that. For me, those flip over eye & nose holes are pointless. I usually have a mask on when I’m in front of my computer. I can see, maybe if you plan to close your eyes and take a nap to have them cover your eyes & nose, but why? Who does that?
Firming Life Coenzyme Q-10 contains Coenzyme Q-10, Vitamin E and Green Tea Extract that help to restore skin elasticity and vitality. This fast working advanced formula visibily lifts and firms to bring your skin back to life.
It does not have any specific scent that I can notice, just the common cosmetic chemical smell, they both smell like that. This mask had so little serum on it, it was borderline drying up already when I took it out of the package. How disappointing. I had to really push it onto my face to get the most out of what was there. I tried to leave it on for the usually 15-20 minutes, which didn’t last of course. After not even 10 minutes, this thing was pretty much dried up and it was pretty pointless to keep it on any longer. Post mask, my skin did however feel quite firm & tight. *surprised* Skintone was much more even, little to no redness visible, even so slightly brighter. The left over serum from the mask however did not want to absorb into my skin. Even after trying to massage it in and 2 hours has passed some still remained on my skin surface and it’s sticky. I can’t stand that sticky feeling of serum. I had to wash my face in the end with cleanser to remove that feeling. Wasted.
Illuminating Arbutin Mask is specially formulated with high concentrations of Arbutin, Vitamin E, Green Tea Extract and Tropical Fruit Extract which help to clarify uneven skin tones, lighten spots, fine lines leaving skin smoother, fairer and younger looking.
This had much more serum in the package as it should be, made it easily to apply onto my face and more to absorbed. I was able to wear it for about 20 minutes without it drying up on me. Post mask, brightening indeed but my skin look a little pale as if all the color was drained out of my skin. Since both mask contains Arbutin, it is expected to have brightening effect, though this was a bit scarier then the other. Ghostly pale like, with no redness or anything. I wonder if used long time, how my face would end up… Quite Hydrating, serum actually absorbed into my skin at a timely manner too. I didn’t have to run off to wash my face with disgust since it didn’t give that really sticky effect. Maybe the other one I got was a dud?
These can be found on sasa if you’re interested and maybe will have better luck then I did. There are also other types available.
I still have other skinlite essence mask in my stash to try soon. I hope that are better.
These were jsut $2.60 US So it’s decently priced.
