Thank goodness it's warm outside today - sort of.. You know it was 70 degrees here a couple weeks ago, then all the sudden the temp dropped to below zero and we got more snow! My skin has been getting very dehydrated again lately, even with the mid 40's to 50's temperatures the past few days - so I'm not only layering essences and serums, but also looking for hydrating sheet masks too!

Something I love about black masks is that they're super thick - meaning they can hold onto a ton of essence - but still super soft and floppy, able to hug all the contours of your face. It's a seemingly rare combo, but something about the cotton used or the charcoal infusion itself allows this to happen.
As with all two-piece masks, I unfolded the top half first, and applied it to my face. Immediate panic set in, as I saw the huge gaps on either side of my nose, and wondered how on Earth I would finagle the bottom half into covering some of these gaps...
However, I worried for nothing. Scinic was just looking out for side nose coverage here (my best guess), because when I applied the bottom half of the mask everything was covered. And I mean everything! This mask was like the sopping wet, hydration blanket my skin has been searching for - and the v-line attachment on the lower half of the mask really sealed the deal for me. This sweet comfy baby stayed wet for an hour before I had to get ready for Easter dinner. Damn...
Upon removal my skin was brighter, and so very hydrated - I couldn't believe it! My skin was literally glowing afterwards. My skin soaked up a nice daytime cream afterwards and my makeup applied beautifully. I need more of these - they give my skin life!
I purchased this mask from Memebox USA*.
TL;DR: This is a black charcoal hydrating mask that clarifies and brightens. It hugs the entire face and v-zone, and feels so squishy and wonderful against the skin. It stays wet for an hour or more, and leaves the skin hydrated and luminous. A must have!
