What I think about 24K Gold Facial mask?

I remember when I was a teenager, I used to accompany my older sisters or my cousins to the salon and those ladies would suggest Pearl or Golden facial. Mainly if she is a “bride to be” , then it’s compulsory to get the Golden facial done so that bride will look more radiant and brighter on Big day. Now, I really do not know if it is true. However, for the past many centuries using Gold (Extract/foil) in skincare has been a regular practice, even “Cleopatra” was a fan of it. So one day I thought let’s try some Gold mask and see if it really makes any difference in skin texture.

There are tons of different varieties of masks available in the market. I like to use clay masks and have been using it for many years but I stay away from single pouch/sachet masks. I am actually a little bit skeptical about it so never tried any masks except maybe 1 or 2 in my life, though I would like to try some in the future. 

Anyway, for the first time, I had ordered something by keeping my preferences aside and was very curious to know if it indeed works.

I am not an expert but so far what know about Gold, is best known for its anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties So, I have been using this for over a year now. I use it after cleansing or exfoliating my face. It comes with a very small spatula to scoop up the product out of the jar without any mess. I apply a thin layer and keep it for 20 min. Then I gently massage the face while rinsing it with warm water. This mask gives me an instant glow. It makes my skin very soft like satin silk. Apparently, the skin is well hydrated and moisturized. Its silky formula looks so luxurious and promising, that it will convince you to add it to your not daily but weekly skincare routine. For me, I feel like getting a spa treatment at home.

Suitable for all skin types. For reference, my skin type is Normal/combination with oily T-zone and not very sensitive. Acne-prone skin, not so sure if it will work for you as I think it has a tendency of leaving some sort of oily/rich moisturizing effect on the skin. It might make your skin more oily which is the last thing you would expect from Gold mask or can cause a breakout. Again, it depends on how you want to incorporate this mask into your beauty regimen. Quantity wise, it is good and will last longer than you imagine..so it is a win-win situation for you and your pocket as well. 

You can see the constancy of the formula below in the picture.

I ordered this mask from Amazon last year and don’t remember the price but I guess it was below $20(USD).

Ingredients : Purified water, Butyl glycol, Silk Amino Acids, Ceramides, Codium Tomentosum Extracts, Hydrolyzed Collagen, LEONTOPODIUM ALPINUM Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, , P-glucan, PORTULACA OLERACEA extract, shea butter, Cereus Grandiflorus extract, Arnica Montana flower extract, sodium hyaluronate, polyglutamic acid, tocopherol (Vitamin E), xanthan gum, allantoin, 24K Gold

I like this mask but not a “must try” product as I did not notice any long term or permanent significant change in my skin tone.

Thank you!

Namaste!

P.S. – I have had been using this Mask for quite a long time before my face started to break out. For the last 3-4 months, I have been fighting with hormonal acne problems. After trying OTC treatments, now finally I am using the “Curology” customized treatment plan. Results are awaited !

Lancôme ROSE SORBET CRYO-MASK $39(USD). Does it really work?

Hello Guys!!!

How are you all? Hopefully, everything is going great at your end… Today I am here to review a very unique Cryo- mask by Lancôme so “1..2..3… eyes on me.”!!

This time I wanted to try something to get rid of enlarged pores which are not that large but when I see my face is going through some really bad acne (breakout) from past three/four months and kind of leaves unwanted nasty black spots followed with some pores, as a result, skin does not look smooth as it was before. Irrespective of skin color, everybody wants that flawless canvas and radiant face …. So me striving to get my skin better and to minimize the appearance of pores.

They say(Lancome), its pore minimizer and glow booster…so let’s see what it is!! I am going to write my honest review and experience after using this mask for about 1 month! Again it varies from person to person so no hard feelings! 

Let’s see what is it? Why Lancôme invented this Sorbet cryo-mask.

A five-minute cooling face mask that instantly re-energizes skin and reveals a rosy glow as it works to tighten pores, smooth skin texture and even skin tone. stated by Lancôme on its website.

When to use it? 1.Cleanse 2.Prepare 3.Active 4.treat(Apply mask) 5.Target

How to Apply? Apply the face mask by gently patting a generous layer on a clean face.After 5 minutes, rinse off with warm water.

How I use it? 1.Cleanse 2.Apply this mask 3.Toner 4.Serum 5.Moisturizer and final step, I use my acne spot treatment cream. I am not sure if this is the correct method to use this mask. But I suppose it should so I continue the way I like it instead of scratching my head and think about what they say. However, I strongly think the end result should be the same.

It has been over a month now since I have started using the product and I can see that mask is becoming my best buddy. Why? because it gives that extraordinary cooling effect on the skin..just calm, relaxing and soothing!!! It has a wonderful rosy smell, not overpowering which I love the most… Sometimes I just open the jar to inhale the rosy scent….quickly freshen up my mood n mind. 

It is actually a decent, very different product that gives instant freshness and glow!!!! Yes! the unique formula makes it a very special mask …so its texture! It is a pink sorbet with a matte finish. You can check the texture below.

But at the same time, I doubt it works as a pore tightening mask, apart from its mind-blowing texture and scent! For me…it does not do its job of minimizing pores!! I did not see any improvements instead when I remove it, I feel my skin has some kind of rawness as if a layer or film has built up on face… It does not feel hydrated or for that matter moisturized!!! I get it, its mattifying mask but then it fails to serve its purpose and does not make skin smooth & supple.

For me, after using this mask for 4 weeks…It did not change my skin texture, with no significant changes. I am not at all happy with this mask except for its cooling effect which is the best part and I enjoy it…and yes I would see if I can get this product at discounted price so that I can use it as a cooling mask to calm down my irritated skin caused by acne. Otherwise, it works like any other drug store mask. Before you buy, make sure you try a sample or trial size pack. I would not recommend it to my friends who are looking for a serious pore-minimizer/tightening mask.

I would give it 2 stars!
