111SKIN Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask Review

09:00


I was so excited to receive this 111SKIN Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask in my November Glossybox. Its the most expensive sheet mask I've ever tried, at £20 a mask! So I definitely had high expectations for this mask.
This hydrogel mask is made in South Korea for 111SKIN. On opening the packet it has 2 protective layers with the mask being in between the two. I was surprised at how gold the mask is, you can see some glitter particles in it too. It is definitely perfumed, which would put a lot of people off, however I found it to be quite a pleasant scent.

On applying it to my face, it was such a terrible fit and it tore very easily when moving it around my face. Due to the rips I couldn't move too much without it slipping down my face. I ended up keeping it on for around 25 minutes before it began to dry out.

When I took the mask off my skin was slightly sticky but it soaked in after 30 minutes. I don't particularly have sensitive skin so I was surprised to see my skin was a little pink after taking it off. It settled down after an hour or so. My skin felt soft but nothing to drastic happened.

Overall I've been dissapointed in this mask solely due to its poor fit, its the worse fit mask I've tried so far unfortunately. The fact that it tore so easily made the fit much worse too. I wouldn't recommend it for sensitive skin due to the perfumed scent and that it made my skin pink. It did an ok job at brightening my skin but its definitely not worth the £20.

  1. Sometimes those overly-hyped products are not worth it. I heard that the VS models use a gold sheet mask. I don't know, I have mixed feelings about it.

  2. This should've been a great mask if it costs £20! It's one of my pet hates when a sheet mask doesn't fit! xxx

  3. That's too bad this mask was a bit of a miss! Nothing worse than a sheet mask that doesn't fit well.

  5. I always struggle with the fit of masks like these too! I look at them and wonder how anyone could have a face that would fit such a mask!

  6. It's such a shame that this product didn't live up to your expectations. I don't think it would work very well for me either as I have really sensitive skin so I would worry about using it x

  8. I'm always curious about these kind of masks, shame that it didn't work out but at least you didn't buy it for the full price!

  9. The retail price is quite high for a one time use mask! It's a shame it didn't work. I find it hard to keep sheet masks on too because I find them a bit big for me so it's an effort aligning the eye and mouth spaces! :) xx

  11. While i do enjoy a good sheet mask that is the part I dislike the most, having to fit them over the face and some while fitting they sit quite awkwardly.
