Ugarden Perfect Oil Firming Mask Review
Saturday, 19 September 2015
The last mask set I reviewed from Bntnews was the Forencos Selene Silk mask project which had great results on my skin, so I was happy to receive another mask pack to review!
The Ugarden firming oil mask consists of 2 steps: a facial oil and then a face and neck mask. The facial oil focuses on treating dry skin to moisturize and nourish without stickiness. The mask is made of silky cellulose for excellent adherence and transparence. You are to apply the sheet right after the oil and leave for 15~20 minutes.
The packs come with different oils such as olive, camellia and bio oil. I received the bio oil version.
I have used bio oil years ago and found it a better moisturiser for my body than my face. Bio oil is famous for treating stretch marks, scars and dehydrated skin.
The sachet contains a very generous amount of oil and I do not recommend using all of it on your face because it is simply too much! I gave my elbows and knees a treat instead.
I apologise for this scary picture, but the mask fit is horrendous! I consider myself to have a large forehead, but it seems as though this mask is catered towards neanderthal brows! The mask is soaked with essence which is usually a great thing, but the forehead 'frill' meant that a mixture of oil and essence got into my hair, making it greasy at the front for the rest of the day.
The neck mask is new to me, and I like the idea of treating your neck too as I often neglect mine, however it slid off my neck multiple times which was annoying.
I felt like an orang-utan with all that extra face.
When I removed the mask, my bare skin looked great, all shiny with bio oil which didn't absorb into my skin well at all. When I put makeup on, the oil prevented it from sticking to my face and all the products slid around, forming a cakey mess as you see above. At the end of the day, I removed my makeup and was horrified to find that my forehead was littered with superficial clogged pores, all from 1 use of this mask combined with daily makeup.
This mask was a fail for me and I would not recommend it, unless you have mature skin that is not at all prone to acne!
