The Tosowoong Vitalizing Essence Mask is a cotton mask that claims to hydrate, nourish and brighten skin. It also claims to contain wrinkle-fighting properties and can improve skins' overall quality.

Healing & Calming Ingredients
Do not use this mask if you are sensitive to butylene glycol, ethyhexyl palmitate, retinyl palimate, tosopherol, dimethicone, or any other ingredients.
This single-piece mask comes in a bottle shaped envelope. The essence looks like a sheer white color, and has a strong perfume-like scent, somewhat "fresh"? It's thicker than water - like a typical facial essence.
The mask is stretchy cotton material that feel very soft and holds on to a good amount of essence. The cut seems a little strange, not much, just like the holes are not as centered as most masks - and the way the mask stretches causes it to bunch instead of stretch out and lay flat. Slightly annoying.
This mask dried up fairly quick - in under 30 minutes. It did brighten my skin a bit, but the entire time I wore it my skin had a slight burning sensation. I was glad to finally take it off. No noticeable irritation, but an hour later there is an oily film on my skin that I can not get to absorb with any amount of patting. This seems like a nice before-bed mask, but not if you can't handle your face sticking to your pillow.
Would I buy it again? No.
