I’m glad that nowadays, lots of overseas beauty brands already easily available here in Indonesia. Just this year alone, I believe that Blithe, Cremorlab, Ouai, Naruko, Uriage, Moonshot and more already available here officially. Kudos to local beauty distributor to bring them here, and not to mention there are a lot of local brands that already move outside their comfort zone and released interesting products! So happy that we have a lot of choices lately! 🙂
But this time around, I want to talk about the recent sheet mask that I’ve tried… which is this Blithe Intensive Mask Sea Cucumber Blue Zone Marine.
What it is:
A mask made with sea cucumber extract to promote a more radiant complexion.
What it does:
The Sea Cucumber Mask helps to brighten the skin tone with a blend of niacinamide and sea cucumber extract, which known as ‘ginseng of the sea’ for its radiance-boosting benefits and relaxing properties. Sea daffodil extracts help protect skin from environmental damage, like extreme weather or dryness, to revitalise dull skin and reveal a clearer complexion.
After cleansing, apply the mask to your face and leave it on for 15-20 minutes. Take off the mask gently and let the remaining essence absorb into your face by lightly patting it.
We can’t talk about Blithe without the exceptional branding and packaging. I mean, can we appreciate this super chic sheet mask packaging? I’m a fan of Blithe whole branding though, also love their Patting Splash Mask, Pressed Serum, and Vital Treatment packaging! I think it’s also well thought and definitely well designed. Okay, moving on the actual product.
Since I’ve encountered a lot, like, a lot of sheet mask; by now I can categorize the quality of sheet mask by 3 to 4 kinds. The first one is the regular sheets, the cheapo one that most of Korean road shop brands use in their cheapest line. Like Lululun, Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask and Etude House Therapy Air Mask. The second one is the better quality sheet mask that being used by middle class to high end brand like Mediheal, Jayjun, Papa Recipe, and Leaders. The third one is the hydrogel mask, and the last one is my favorite, and definitely one of the most expensive in the category, bio-cellulose mask.
This mask is definitely in the second category of the sheet mask. It’s not the groundbreaking hydrogel or bio-cellulose material, but it’s definitely not a cheapo sheet mask material. The material is quite thick, and I think pretty suitable considering the essence is pretty thick. Every person has different preferance towards sheet mask application, but since the essence is pretty thick, I’d like to use it after serum, before oil and moisturizer.
The result? It might be pretty heavy towards some people, especially in tropical country like in Indonesia. My dry, dehydrated skin of course love it so much. The result might not be as instant as Papa Recipe sheet mask, but if I use it with the correct step and consider it as essence, my skin would look well hydrated and plump. You definitely need to tap tap your skin further though to make sure that your skin adsorbs all the essence.
Will I recommend it to everyone? Well, if you have dry to normal skin, please do give it a try. However, since it’s pretty pricey, I think, you would better purchase the full size of their essence and toner instead. I haven’t research which one of their toner / essence that have the formulation with this sheet mask, but since a lot of sheet mask that I know always use the existing product as their sheet mask essence, I’m pretty sure there’s a product that uses this formulation.
Well, have you tried this sheet mask before? What do you think? Please do share it in the comment section below! 😉
