What the brand says: Get a healthy looking skin with the Skin Clinic Mask. This fine delicate cotton mask contains Madecassoside to soothe your irritated skin due to moisture loss and to help fortify skin barrier. This 100% natural cotton sheet is made from soft cotton hairs around the cotton wool. It is transparent and thin and has good adherence on the skin, which allows for its good substances to be more effective delivered into the skin.
Madecassoside is one of four principal bioactive compounds in the plant extract Centella asiatica (brahmi). Brahmi is an ayurvedic plant and this compound extracted from this pant has anti-inflammatory, skin soothing and healing properties.
MY TAKE ON INNISFREE SKIN CLINIC MASK MADECASSOSIDE
The sheet mask comes in a pretty matte and metallic packet unlike real squeeze masks. These sheet masks are thinner and come neatly folded in a thin white plastic sheet inside the packet. The real squeeze masks come alone in matte packets which is why this one is priced a bit higher. The packets are easy to carry around and can be used whenever and wherever you want.
The mask comes moist and soaked completely in the non-sticky liquid.
The mask has a very pleasant smell similar to some mild perfume which seems quite familiar. It has a mild sweet smell which I love!
How to use and after-effects:
I took out the thin cotton mask from the neatly folded plastic film and placed it on my cleansed face. You are supposed to keep the sheet mask for 15-20 minutes but I let it work longer, for 30 minutes after which the sheet dried up and then I had to remove it. Skin was still wet with the liquid so I massaged gently for few seconds and my face was matte in no time. I did not wash my face after using the mask and after 30 minutes or so, my skin felt like there is nothing on it and it felt very soft and smooth. If you ask me the major changes that I have seen, here it is:
No.1- My skin was very irritated and inflamed due to anti-acne cream retinol and this mask worked like a dream in soothing the irritation!
No.2- I had 2 new pimples coming up on the cheeks which cannot be seen but I could feel the pain. After 4-5 hours I literally could not feel any pain and the upcoming pimple just went away.
No.3- I had few dry patches due to the dry winter weather and of course because of retinol. The dry patches went away (I know this is temporary, I need to use this mask regularly to keep dryness at bay!!) and my skin looked quite hydrated.
Overall, the effect of the mask was quite impressive and I loved it.
- Travel friendly
- Hydrates skin really well
- Has a soothing effect on the skin
- Has anti-inflammatory effects
- Soothes and calms down acne
- One needs to regularly use the mask for long term effects which can be on the expensive side
