The Review Crew® share their verdict on these purifying hydrogel masks
If you haven’t tried a sheet mask yet, you’ve been living under a rock. The trend has turned into an essential skin care step in our busy lives, delivering skin a potent hit of nutrients in a short amount of time. And if you find the right one, you can even put it on and carry on with your hectic to-do list while it works its magic – without worrying about it slipping off your face. The tricky thing about sheet masks though, is that they only come in a one-size-fits-all shape, which often doesn’t fit your face and makes it difficult to apply.
Neutrogena® have released a range of hydrogel sheet masks that come in two pieces, giving you more flexibility to mould the mask around your facial contours for a better fit. The other unique feature about these masks are their consistency, which is more like a jelly than a paper sheet, allowing them to hold more of the skin-loving essence that they’re soaked in. And then there’s the formula. The Neutrogena® Purifying Boost 100% Hydrogel Mask in particular is packed with hyaluronic acid for an intense hydration hit, plus seaweed extract to purify the skin, leaving you with a refreshed and refined complexion after the 15-30 minute application time is up.
Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this product to the test.
Beauty Crew sent the Neutrogena® Purifying Boost 100% Hydrogel Mask to a panel of women aged 25-39 years old with normal to dry skin in need of a purifying treatment and a sheet mask option that better fits their face.
Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Neutrogena® Purifying Boost 100% Hydrogel Mask:
The mask is generously soaked in serum: Thanks to the hydrogel material, these single-use masks are able to hold more of the serum, and our reviewers noticed the difference. “They are super generous with the amount of serum provided so you certainly get your bang for you buck!” said Review Crew® member Tana.
The unique two-piece hydrogel sheet: Our Review Crew® were fans of the two-piece design of these purifying masks, commenting that they’ve had trouble in the past finding sheet masks that fit their face and had more success with this one. They also felt the separate pieces made this mask easier to apply.
How effective it was at hydrating dry skin: Many reviewers commented on how their skin was starting to feel dry coming into winter. But after using this mask, their complexion looked and felt nourished and plump. Reviewers also loved how cooling the gel formula felt on their skin, with one member particularly loving how its refreshing hydration hit woke up her complexion first thing in the morning.
Good to know: Some members were confused about which side to apply on their face – the smooth side or the textured side. Make sure the textured side is the one that’s touching your face for best results.
