Luke Aloe Essence Mask (Super Moisturizing) Skin18.com Review

Hey gals,

It time for another review of a face mask which I received from Skin18.com. Read onto know why I wouldn't recommend the mask.

My experience
As seen in the pictures the mask is available in a packaging and is one time use mask. The pouch is compact and hence travel friendly. The mask is made up of cotton so as to increase the absorption of the essence. The essence has a medium gel consistency and is opaque in nature. As soon as you remove the mask a fresh floral fragrance hits you and after going through the ingredients list I got to know that it contains fragrance.

The mask after applying drips the essence if we sit upright. After using the mask I also dabbed the essence on my akin. I applied a thick layer and then massaged it into the skin. After 5 minutes rinsed with cold water.

After rinsing my skin felt soft, smooth, evened out and had a subtle glow. The glow lasted a few hours say 1-2 hours. But the moisturizing effect wasn't up to the mark since this mask is said to be super Moisturising. It moisturised my skin for around 4-5 hours. Even after washing my face with facewash afterwards my skin felt parched and I needed a moisturizer. The moisturizing effect does not deep down the skin and is superficial.

Also the directions for usage say that apply a moisturizer after cleansing and then apply the mask. What is the use of the mask when I need to apply a moisturizer before using it?


The In
  • Travel friendly packaging
  • Budget friendly
  • Amazing floral fragrance
  • Gives instant moisturizing effect which lasts little less
  • Makes the skin even toned, smooth and soft
  • Gives a subtle glow to the skin with just one use
  • Gets absorbed easily and dries up quickly
  • Gives a cooling effect to the skin
  • Freshens up the skin

The Out
  • Didn't give intense moisturizing effects as claimed
  • One mask is insufficient for showing long term effects
  • Contains fragrance

Price, shelf life and availability - $1.65 with a shelf life of 3 years and available on skin18.com

Recommendation
I would recommend the mask for it's okay sort moisturizing effects as a good to go option while travelling. I would like to try other variants as this didn't make me happy as other face masks. This is the first time am not happy with a Korean face mask. If you get it as a freebie, try it, else don't invest your money.
