Product Review : Grace Plateau Salvia-Root Illuminating Facial Mask

Hello my Domokies! Once again it's been awhile since my last review~ I still have a peach range review coming up and I've yet to do the Nishino Kana inspired look! All in due time :D

And as all of you know, I have an obsession with masks. They make your skin look and feel good. Simply adore them, just that they're a bit of a hassle to do at night! Despite that, I still try to mask twice a week. Today, the mask I'm sharing is the...

Doesn't the summarized points sound good?

Okay seriously, if I read this mask description, I'd be really tempted to purchase it just to test how good it truly is. Plus, take a look at the ingredients list.

It's as though the mask is packed with a whole lot of awesomeness and it's just not possible for it to fail.

For me, I did not soak it in warm water because the weather wasn't very cold that night. I did not wipe off the excess liquid after using too. Instead, I massaged it into my face and let it absorb.

Here's what it looks like, pardon the messy hair, I just took a shower. This is the second time I'm using a mask with the eye flap thingy.Probably, all of you should lie down, chill and take a short nap with this mask. If you need to do some work, you can choose not to cover your eyes.

In terms of fitness, this is the FIRST mask that really covers my entire bulbous nose. Yet at the same time, it's slightly too big at the mouth area for me. Other than that, this is a pretty big mask and it's pretty safe to say that it'll completely cover everyone's face? UNLESS yours is the extra huge kind?

The essence of this mask is thicker than usual, more viscous than that of other masks I've tried. It feels almost jelly like and initially I was afraid of it being too "heavy" for my face to take in. It makes the mask slightly more slippery than others too.

L - Before / R - After

I have to say, the difference is not so obvious in the pictures because sometimes my wonky camera just does that. In reality, my complexion was really brightened. In my own mirror, I could see a smooth radiant complexion even though I was about to go to bed. My face still looked radiant when I woke up in the morning. The best part of this mask is that it really makes my face so moisturized and soft! The downside for me is the ginseng like smell, not a fan of TCM scents! But then again the main ingredient of this mask IS the TCM so you don't have a choice if you want the good stuff~

Strangely, despite the thicker essence, this absorbed well into my face. I personally wouldn't recommend wiping the essence off because... Why remove the goodies from your face?! Of course, this is up to your individual preference.

This mask is available in a pack of 10 pieces for $29 at Guardians ONLY. I'm prolly going to get it once I finish my tons of mask because, I like it. Simple as that! They have other variations too, I wish I had the sheep placenta one =/ Gonna check check check it out!
