I received a Leaders 7 Wonders Amazonia Acai Anti-Pollution Mask in Beauty Beyond Borders August 2016 subscription box. I loved the mask so much that I found a sample pack of 5 varieties in this line. I tried the Kalahari Moisturizing Mask on a cold late winter night. I like to use moisturizing masks when it is dry and cold out. My skin is normal with some dryness in the cold weather and a lot of shine in warmer months.
Oil from the Kalahari Melon, the biological ancestor of the watermelon, contains linoleic, oleic, and palmitic fatty acids to reinforce your skin’s healthy barrier function and lock in moisture.
- Rough skin
- Tired skin
- Brightens dull & tired skin

This bio-cellulose mask comes sandwiched between pieces of a stiffer material that you peel away from the mask. I love bio-cellulose masks because I find that they deliver better results than cotton masks. What I hate is peeling away the outer layers. They do not come off easily and it is a lot of work. I always get the mask all bunched up and it is so hard to straighten out and position it correctly.
The mask is drenched in serum and there is more than enough to put on your neck and chest. It has a light scent but I did not smell melon at all. It actually smelled kind of like bubblegum. The mask fit my face well and was big enough to cover my entire face. It adhered closely to my skin and stayed put. I do have a mask cover that I put over sheet masks. It keeps them in place and helps press the serum into my skin.
Bio-cellulose masks fit and feel totally different than cotton or fiber masks. They honestly feel like a condom. They adhere to your skin in a different way that allows your skin to absorb more product.
The directions say to leave the mask on for 20-25 minutes but I like to leave sheet masks on for 30 minutes to an hour. I want my skin to have time to absorb the maximum amount of serum. I left this one on for an hour. I have read many times that you should never leave sheet masks on longer than the directions say to because it can actually draw moisture from your skin after it dries. I use a mask cover that keeps it from totally drying out.
These masks need to be peeled off as they dry to your skin once all the serum is absorbed. My face was still damp and tacky with serum but it was easily massaged into my face. I followed it with my current serum, eye cream, and moisturizer.
When I removed the mask my skin did look brighter and plumper. It felt super soft and smooth. The next morning my skin was bright and amazingly soft. This is a great mask but I think I like the Amazonia Acai Anti-Pollution Mask better.
I would definitely repurchase these if I could find bargains. As good as it was, I would never pay $6 for a single sheet mask. In my recent Monster Sheet Mask Haul I got a box of 10 of the 7 Wonders Mediterranean Olive Brightening Masks for $15.00! Look for a future review on that version of this mask. This is the 2nd mask I have tried in this line and I am very impressed. I definitely recommend this for anyone with normal or dry skin.
Have you tried any of the 7 Wonders sheet masks? Did you love them too? What sheet masks are your favorite?
