Askmewhats Reviews: Laitialies Collagen Essence Sheet Mask in Green Grape

Bee sent me a couple of masks and I am so excited to give it a try because I missed those weekends I hide inside a dark room and scare the hell of my mom! LOL :)

Last Saturday, after a long and tiring day, I've took a shower and decided to reward myself with a "ME TIME"!

Bee gave me a couple of masks to try on and she told me the Laitialies Collagen Essence Sheet Mask in Green Grape *whew that was long!* is her favorite so I chose it to be my first mask to try on!

Pros
  • Sheet - made really durable
  • Scent - smells really nice, a very tiny hint of green grapes
  • The liquid stays on the sheet, it doesn't go left all over the packaging
  • Moisturizes the skin, the dry spots on the side of the nose was gone
  • My skin definitely goes softer for the whole night, woke up and saw no signs of dryness
  • Has a bit of cooling effect <--- not sure if it's because I'm inside an air conditioned room

Cons
  • have to do this frequently to really see a huge effect
  • I haven't seen this here in the Philippines, but I would say, there's a lot of "Dupe-ables" sold here in the Philippines <--- I may have to start searching
  • the whitening and anti-aging properties is too early to tell, definitely no signs of whitened skin or wrinkles gone! <--- if that happens, this is definitely a MAGICAL product I would HOARD lol

Overall
(Disclaimer: if you got turned off after seeing the upcoming photos, I can't blame you)

Here's how the sheet looks like when removed from the packaging
It's NOT dripping wet, the "liquid" stays on the sheet



The Sheet is the same size as any facial masks you can find out there



Actually, I learned from a lady who does facial that it is best to lay down, close your eyes , relax or even sleep when you have facial masks on to maximize the absorption of the product to your skin. In my case, I am hard-headed so I chose to take a pose!




Of course you didn't see me but I went running around scaring my mom-in-law, watch tv, reacts and talks to the husband...LOL I am ONE HYPER LADY!


Tips
  • relax!!!
  • use this after cleansing your face
  • during summer, refrigerate the face mask before using
  • the packaging says wait for 20-30 minutes, I leave it more than 30 minutes til the sheet goes completely dry. I have to admit, I am a "cheapo" and I hate wastage, I let this sheet stayed ...almost...an ...hour!!!!
But hey, you can't blame me!!!
The sheet wasn't completely dry YET
So why waste the moisture? LOL

  • after removing the sheet, I massaged my face gently with my finger tips
  • I use the remaining product in the packaging to massage my elbows and knees :D (I make the most out of everything)
Will I repurchase?

I'd love to, but base on my experience, there's so many Face Masks out there and you just want to give each of them a try!!! It took me so many tries that I forgot which works and which doesn't! LOL

I would never in the world thought I'd post photos of me in the most embarrassing moments! But I do love my readers and anything for a laugh!
Care to share your embarrassing photos? LOL

Dear Philippine Readers:

  2. i would like to try this kind of facial mask too. so far i've only tried those that you leave on to dry on your face. i just thought maybe that way the product is more absorbed by our skin... :)

  3. lol. i can never lie down with the mask, just so much to do at home. i never leave more than >20 mins tho. my aunt, who is a beautician, not to leave it longer than 20 mins so that it wont dry out your skin or something like tht, i dont know how true is that tho

  4. Hehe you're so cute! I also heard that you should leave a mask on until it's dry because it will start to take moisture away from the skin! And also not supposed to make expressions when you're using masks because it can cause the folds from smiling or frowning turn into actual wrinkles faster! :x

    Bee!!! I thought about you when I had the mask on!!!! I can honestly imagine you'd do the same! RUB the excess on your elbows and knees! LOL I kinda knew you would say that !

  11. You crack me up! I have been told that you shouldn't leave the mask too long on your skin (even if its still wet) because it can cause sensitive skins to react. 15-20 minutes tops. The rest of it can be used on the neck and arms :)
