Hi everyone! Why do I look like a crazed superhero, you ask? It’s not even Halloween, you say! You’re right – this is not the beginning stages of my Halloween costume and no, I am not Batman.
I’m wearing a Brightening Black Eye Mask from a company called Sexy Look. Since I’ve been going hard at my face mask game, I figured I would try a targeted sheet mask for just the eye area. When I started doing some digging, I couldn’t believe how specific some of the sheet masks got – chin masks, lips masks, neck and cleavage masks, hand masks! Craziness. The skin around the eye area is very delicate and requires care – keeping up with your eye creams for moisture, being gentle when you scrub off your eye makeup, making sure your under eyes doesn’t get sun damaged, trying to get a good amount of sleep to avoid dark circles. With that said, why not give the area a little extra love? A targeted eye mask it is!
I’ll be honest, I chose this specific eye mask because the packaging looked so damn cool. And also because the mask itself is black (many sheet masks I’ve tried are just plain white). I imagined myself sitting on the couch watching TV and simultaneously thinking up ways to be a vigilante. I was sold.
The mask was easy to apply. After unfolding it, I used a mirror to smooth it out. It wasn’t as sopping wet as some of the sheet masks I used, which I preferred for around my eyes. The mask was a little too long length-wise on me, so the ends kind of rested on my hair. I was just going to bed afterward so it wasn’t a huge deal. I left the mask on for 15 minutes, then rubbed in the excess gently around my eye area. My under eyes felt very refreshed and taut. I waited a few minutes for the excess to sink in, then applied my nightly eye cream. When I woke up the next morning, I didn’t really see a noticeable difference. Not that I thought one sheet mask was going to change my face forever, but it seemed the effect of the mask was just temporary from the night before.
This individual mask was $2.50 from Beauteque.com. I probably won’t repurchase. It wasn’t terrible but it didn’t really blow me away either. There are also so many other masks out there to try, so maybe there is an eye mask out there that is going to knock my socks off. I will say, however, that wearing this does make you consider a life of fighting crime.
