G.M. Collin Aqua Mask Review:
I typically don’t expect big results from moisturizing masks. My skin is combination/normal and veers on the sensitive side. Typically, my daily moisturizer is enough for me. But, I have this mask, so of course, I’ll try it and see what it does.
Upon applying it on my face, after my shower, I immediately noticed a cooling sensation. I used masks before that actually contained menthol in the formula, simulating the tingly cooling feeling that I hated. This wasn’t an artificially simulated sensation though. This felt good and soothing. I expected the formula to be bright blue, but it was just a slight blue tint upon application. The gel glides on smoothly.
I watched an episode of an anime series while I waited for the mask to do its magic. When my 20 minutes were up, I was honestly disappointed about washing it off. The entire time it just felt like a cool, soothing gloop I was meant to be born with permanently. It’s hard to describe the sensation, but it was satisfying.
Washing it off required a little more effort than I thought it would. The mask was a bit gloopy, so I had to use a washcloth to completely get rid of it. Not to say that it took me a long time, I just didn’t expect it from something that looks like aloe vera gel. I thought it would just glide off.
I didn’t see anything dramatically different after washing off and moisturizing, but the magic came when I woke up the next day. My skin felt hydrated and supple. I actually touched my face several times to savor the feeling of perfectly hydrated skin.
After researching the ingredients, I saw that almost all of them were good-for-you antioxidants and humectants, meaning they actively draw moisture to your skin. I’m a convert.
