Woohoo! #MaskMonday !! It’s been a while since I’ve tried a new sheet mask, so I was super excited to experience the [I’m Real] Lemon Face Mask from TONYMOLY’s Collection. This is a Brightening mask, which is just what I needed after returning from a Bachelorette Weekend in the mountains of Colorado. Not to mention, Korean skincare is #OnFleek, so I knew I was in for a treat. Since the mask comes in a 2 pack, I even convinced the Mister to get in on the fun. I’m sure he figures that if he’s roped into Bachelorette Monday, he might as well go Big. (He has tried one other mask with me before – remember this one?)
As with all sheet masks I’ve tried before, I had a little bit of difficulty unfolding the sheet because of the amount of product saturating the material, but it worked. Since it’s a pretty thick sheet (3 layers), I didn’t feel as prone to tear it as I have with others, which helped. In the long run, I suppose anyone would rather have too-much serum than not-enough. I utilized it for the full 30 minutes (it recommends 20-30), and had quite a bit of liquid to pat in at the end. I could definitely feel the product on my face for another hour afterwards.
As with all lemon products, I was a little worried about too much of a ‘cleaning supply’ smell, but the lemon was actually very pleasant. I described it to the Mister ‘as if someone squeezed fresh lemon into my sweet tea‘ – which isn’t a bad lemon scent with which to hang out! Surprisingly, the Mister commented that he wished the mask had MORE of a lemon scent, because he was looking forward to that experience.
Did it brighten? I would definitely say that the dry patches on my skin have disappeared, and my face overall feels more hydrated. Some of the ‘problem spots’ on my chin have evened out. The Mister described his post-mask skin as ‘smooth, firm and supple’ – I think that’s a manly thumbs up!
Would I purchase this again? At $7.50 (for TWO!) it’s cheaper than any other mask I’ve utilized (even the similar Sephora masks). I have some more from this line, so I’m interested to try them out and see the results. And the Mister is willing to give sheet masks a second go-round, as well. Overall success!
Have you used any of the TONYMOLY masks? Do you have another mask you’d recommend I try?
