Review: The entire range of Hydro Wrapping masks feature the same unique special coating on top of the mask sheet. It definitely helps lock in the moisture essence so that your skin will absorb all of it, and none of the essence will evaporate into the air. The scent is very soothing and green, probably to suit the bamboo extract. It’s not strong and did not irritate my sensitive nose. After 20 minutes, the mask was still very wet with essence and I followed instructions to massage the remaining solution into my skin. The essence took only less than a minute to absorb into my skin and I applied moisturizer after that. Initially it was a little sticky as my face was overloaded with moisture goodness but it soon became matte and smooth after 10 minutes.
I used the mask last night, and this morning, my skin was smooth and bouncy even after I washed my face. It would usually be a little dry! 2 thumbs up! The mask sheet did not really fit very well around my jaw, with a lot of excess. I did what I usually do with extra large mask sheets: tear the mask in 2 around the mouth area to make it fit nicely.
Would I buy again: Yup, I love the unique mask coating! So interesting.
