I received this mask in Beauty Beyond Borders January 2017 which had all masks that month. I was saving this mask until my face was feeling especially dry. I am currently increasing the strength of my tretinoin and I am having dryness around my mouth and chin. This seemed like a great time to try this mask.
The star product from Taiwan’s For Beloved Girl, this mask will cure all dry patches! Packed with hyaluronic acid, sodium PCA, and sodium lactate, this mask is designed to lock in all-day moisture to create an immediate glow for dehydrated and fatigued skin.
Sodium hyaluronate molecule enables skin to capture, lock, and retain water circulation, making skin to show plump watery glow. Sodium PCA replenishes skin with essential mineral nutrition to strengthen skinbarrier, creating smoother skin and improving metabolism. Sodium lactate balances pH value also maintain skins moisture ability.
Use 2-3 times per week or daily depending on skin condition and needs.

1. After cleansing spread the mask. Each package contains 2 layers.
2. Spread the cloud silk mask (the transparent layer) onto the face. Discard the outer protective layer (the non-transparent layer).
3 Adjust the cloud silk mask to completely cover your face then wait 10-15 minutes to see bright and smooth skin.
For reference, my skin is normal with shine in the hot, humid months. I use tretinoin 6 days a week and an AHA 1 day a week. My concerns are anti-aging, fine lines and wrinkles, and dark spots. My skin is not particularly sensitive.
I used an oil to remove my makeup and then cleansed my face. I used my toner, applied a serum, and applied my tretinoin. I waited about 2 hours before using the mask to allow the tretinoin time to be fully absorbed.
The mask had a stiff plastic cover over it. The mask itself was thin and hugged my face. It was soft and .thoroughly saturated in a thin, but not watery serum. It had a very faint, light scent. There was a fair amount of serum in the packet.
The mask fit my face well. It adhered well to my face. The eye holes fit well. The nose hole was a larger than it needed to be and there was only a thin strip for my upper lip. It is really dry around my mouth so I would have liked better coverage. The mask was big enough that I was able to fold it under my jawline.
I have a silicone mask cover that I use over sheet masks. It holds them in place and keeps them pressed into my skin. This has to help with maximum absorption. I left the mask on for 45 minutes and it still was not dried out.
Once the serum was absorbed I spritzed my face with rosewater. I followed this with rosehip oil mixed with my moisturizer. My face felt very soft and hydrated. It looked plumper and more hydrated.
I needed hydration and this mask delivered. My skin looked and felt more hydrated after using this. It looked plumper and brighter. You can buy a box of 3 for $14.99 on Amazon. I do like it but I’m not sure I would pay $5 a mask for it. It isn’t that much better than some of the $1 ish masks I have used.
Have you tried this mask? What is your favorite hydrating sheet mask? Sheet mask of any kind? Hydrating mask in general?
