Part of my Facetory subscription
Showstopping properties aside, it also has an interesting essence formula because this has 8 “red” ingredients that promise nutrition and skin vitality like pomegranate, strawberry, Chinese raspberry and grape extracts. Firstly, I’m sure the number “8” was chosen to appeal to the Asian market, but luckily all 8 of these ingredients are pretty good AND are all together at the top of the ingredients list. Most function as antioxidant or brightening ingredients and the fact that all of this combined with a red foil mask is something I found kind of cool. The idea behind a foil mask is that idea that the essence is able to “incubate” beneath the layer of foil as nothing evaporates. The description on FaceTory says that your skin will also get hot while things are “cooking” which makes sense as medically you cover people who are in shock or cold with foil to insulate them. What I found was more of a “muggy” heat similar to how you start to feel after wearing your surgical face mask out and about. It can get a bit uncomfortable and I almost felt like I was sweating towards the end.

Skin concerns: Dullness
Essence Type: Viscous clear liquid
Duration: 20 min
Thickness: Fairly thin and similar to all other foil masks I have tried like Estee Lauder and The Face Shop
Mask Fit: Not bad for foil without too much lifting at the chin which is hard to do with a stiff material.
Hydration: Good, but needed eye cream
Other notes: LOTS of essence leftover as the foil material isn’t very absorbent so make sure to squeeze out some first and “prime” the skin
Final verdict: Obviously the impact of a red foil mask was a fun one for me, but I don’t think I would purchase this again. Yes, my skin was moisturized and looked nice after, but no nicer than when I use my other sheet masks and skincare. I also don’t enjoy foil masks as much as regular sheet or biocellulose masks. There was also a lot of essence left over which makes me think that more of it could have gone towards the sheet mask. This mask was cool to try and get a photo of, but I don’t think I will be trying this again.
