Hi there! Today’s post is about Valjean Labs’ Hydrate Face Mask with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B5. This face mask promises to plump up skin, and to improve skin’s elasticity.
This mask works like any other sheet mask. You’re supposed to… cleanse your face, place the mask on your face, leave it on for about 20 minutes, then remove it and massage the remaining essence into your skin.
I’ve already used 2 of these masks, and I have to say that I’m not impressed. I found that the mask doesn’t hydrate my skin, but that it makes my skin feel sticky. And this makes my skin feel uncomfortable to the point that it feels like something is pulling at my skin.
Whilst I can report that the mask did plump up my skin and smooth out the lines on my forehead, this effect was very short-lived (20 minutes). I’m not impressed.
A look at the ingredients showed that the essence contains a number of botanical extracts, and this is great. However, it also revealed that sodium hyaluronate was listed near the end of the ingredients list and only after parfum, so there can’t be much of it in this mask. Overall, I’m disappointed with this mask. I won’t recommend it, and I’ll take the remaining masks from the set into work, and whoever wants them can have them. If you’re looking for a hydrating face mask, I recommend Nature Love’s Hyaluronic Face Mask.
Valjean Labs’ Hydrate Face Mask is available as a set of 5 masks. I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).
