This is a two-step thing. There’s a jelly-like serum in a small pot first, which smells of zesty lemon, followed by the mask. NGL, this one looked a bit spooky as it has a shiny, rubbery finish so it kinda looked like I had a cheese slice on my face. Nevertheless, the results were immediate. After 40 minutes, my skin looked clearer and bright, and I even had some serum left over to use the next day. Bonus.

I’m a bit of a magpie so I was immediately drawn to this one. It really does come out gold and I very much enjoyed looking like an Oscar award for 15 minutes. I loved how smoothly it went on, and it didn’t take much product to cover the surface of my skin. It peeled off easily, too, so it didn’t feel like I was scraping at my face afterwards. Enriched with fruit extracts, it left my skin moisturised and oh-so fresh.

I swear this one is magic. The sheet is silky smooth and jet black like its packaging, but as soon as you apply it, bubbles start to appear out of nowhere. I lost total sight of the black sheet and instead my face was in some kind of foam party. It was a bit messy, and I think I ended up eating some of the bubbles, but extremely hydrating.
