Something I’ve always tried and failed to do is to use face masks more often. That’s usually because, when I get home from work, I eat, catch up on the latest TV shows or game until it’s time for bed. By this time, I’ve only just remembered that I had planned to put a face mask on – and it’s too late … I’m in bed, lights are off, I’m out.
I guess the real reason why I tend to forget is because I never really saw the value in spending my time doing it. Now that I am paying closer attention to the health my skin (let’s be honest, no one’s getting any younger), I’ve become more curious about different skin products and their benefits.
This is my first time trying Trefiel’s lace plant-based anti-ageing masks hydromasks. Before I give you the play-by-play, here is a little bit about the product. I’ve chosen the Brightening option as I want my complexion to be less dull. I don’t have any wrinkles yet (I hope…) and I don’t get too many pimples (knock on wood) so that’s why I chose Brightening over the other options available.
The three key ingredients are Vitamin C, Licorice Root and Pomegranate Extracts and these are supposed to aid in giving skin a natural, radiant glow, improve skin texture and tone, and brighten dull and lifeless skin. So, let's put it to the test.
The instructions are pretty clearly printed on the back of the pack: cleanse, apply, wait 15 - 30 minutes, remove. I always like to leave these kinds of products on for the longest recommended time, i.e. 30 minutes.
Even before you open the pack, you can feel a lot of liquid inside. Upon opening, the mask has been laid out two bits of plastic film to keep it from twisting. Trefiel masks come in a set of two - upper and lower face. The liquid is very slippery so try not to drop it! I applied the two pieces onto my face, overlapping them slightly, which is recommended. Try to flatten the mask onto your face as much as possible - unfortunately for me,
my face is smaller than usual so I always have a little extra space.
Now, it's the waiting game. After 15 - 30 minutes, you can remove.
The results were quite immediate, my skin did look brighter! After about 15 minutes, once all the excess liquid had sunk into my skin, my face felt smoother and softer. A+ Trefiel!
These face masks can be purchased individually or in a pack of 5 or 10 - or you can purchase a monthly subscription where you receive 4 masks and 2 hand-picked gifts. This mask is something I'd definitely work into my weekly schedule. If you have the time, put on a mask before you put on your make up, it feels like everything just glides on and you will feel extra fresh for the day (or night) ahead.
