After reading our previous post Korean Sheet Masks and Why you need them in your life, you must be curious to find out how this product performs. So I gathered it would be fun to have a "before and after sheet mask" post + product review. Today I'll show the amazing results produced by one of my favourite sheet masks, the Whamisa Organic Fruits & Tomato, a hydrogel mask which promises lifting + revitalising + toning effects. Whamisa products are ECOCERT certified and contain stable natural preservatives, what makes me even more fond of their skin care solutions!
First, a little bit of science. Whamisa is a fermented skin care manufacturer, meaning their products contain various kind of beneficial yeast that will trigger additional results when applied to the skin. During the fermentation, active ingredients are cultivated, good bacteria is brewed, and bad bacteria is removed, creating a naturally powerful formula. In addition to enhancing the active ingredients already present in the product, fermentation breaks down their molecular weight, making them easier to absorb. Fermentation of skin care was born in East Asia and has been a staple in the skin care culture of Korea and Japan for years.
Now let's get down to the Whamisa hydrogel mask, a sheet mask which deserves a place in the podium of premium masks. I always recommend to place your sheet mask in the fridge for a few minutes before using it, what will guarantee some extra cooling effects (= goodbye, redness!). After opening the package, you'll notice this two-piece mask is carefully wrapped into a cellophane foil. Carefully remove the foil from the smaller piece and apply it over your jaw. Use your fingertips to align it to the contour of your face. Next, apply the upper half on your forehead and repeat. The mask is immersed in abundant essence (the perfume is divine!) and you don't want to throw this superb liquid away. My suggestion is to spread it over your neck while you wait for the mask to work its magic.
You can now watch some Netflix, catch up on your reading, or reply to that hot conversation on WhatsApp. After 20-30min, remove the mask and discard the hydrogel.
The skin is simply glowing after using this mask. Compare the before and after below to see how pores have been improved and how my redness is less noticeable. It looks like I just woke up, even though these pics were taken on a Friday evening. No filters, no make up, everyone! What made this a really easy post to write, haha.
This picture was taken right before applying the mask:
Below is a short step-by-step video in which I summarise the above:
This mask will surprise you if:
I can't recommend this mask enough. It is suitable for all skin types and has never caused my sensitive skin to breakout, which is a permanent concern of those with oily/combi skin venturing into the world of sheet masks. How wonderful it is to use a product whose ingredients are not only fantastic but whose performance you can truly trust? Whamisa, you had me at organic!
