Some of the best skincare ingredients are from Africa♀️♀️♀️. True story. This is Palm Kernel oil (oil from the kernel of a palm nut) NOT PALM OIL. This was a staple back in the day so I’m super happy to add it back into my skincare and haircare regimen. I remember it to be really hydrating & moisturizing which is what I need in this treacherous drying northern winter. I consider this to be African version of Jamaican Black Castor Oil. .

Since I’m currently sheet masking every single day, I thought I’ll do a quick review of the ones that I’ve tried so far.
First batch: the hydrogels! #Milu soothing hydrogel@mask, two parts mask for each half of the face. The lower part is kind of awkward, it’s droopy and too big for my Asian face Gifted by @nopai from Netherland. A good hydrating hydrogel, but of you want to find something similar any hydrating hydrogel mask will do. I always love discovering new skincare brands. #Cremorlab Hydro Plus nutrition deep hydroplus mask, another hydrating mask. The two parts mask fit nicely into my face. The essence sink nicely into the skin, minimal stickyness. My skin felt bouncier, a good one but don’t compare this to the Verso mask. #Verso deep hydration mask is worth the price! It feels hydrating, my skin feels bouncier, fine lines from dehydration less visible and my puffy face look normal after using this. Even the puffiness under my eyes. Skincare absorp really good afterward. Not sticky at all! A two parts hydrogel mask. The fit is perfect and it “glued” to my face perfectly. #Treeannsea Carat Plane A280 Bio Cellulose Mask. Like your sheet mask, a very big size mask for your whole face! But this bio cellulose sheet that contains coconut water stick nicely into my face. It feels hydrating, a little bit wet afterward but not sticky, and very refreshing! Contains Bifida Ferment Lysate.
So here’s when to use each one.
If you feel your skin is tired, extra dehydrated, puffy and overall making you frustrated; the Verso mask is worth the investment. Use it once a month. To keep giving nourishment and hydration to the skin use hydrogel mask from other brands in between. I like the Cremorlab one if I want hydration and bouncier skin. I like the Treeannsea if I want a glowing and hydrated skin.
