Skin Food's Salmon Sheet Mask
What the frijigajig? A salmon sheet mask? Okay, so I saw this in Skin Food and thought it was a strange ingredient. This mask contains salmon egg extract at 27mg. Salmon is super high in omega 3. Most people take supplements to help with their brain function and other medical problems like arthritis and dementia. People also take it to help with skin and hair problems. This mask is supposed to help with dryness and helps brighten dull skin, which I can see working since salmon eggs are pretty oily!
The mask felt super baggy! Although it's the same size as the other Skin Food masks. I think the reason for this is because the mask wasn't saturated with essence. When I opened the pack, the essence pooled at the bottom. There was over a tablespoon of essence in the bottom so, I assume the cotton sheet didn't soak it all up; it also felt dryer than most masks too. Maybe I just opened a duff pack, I have one more to try again.
Surprisingly, there wasn't a fishy smell! When I read the name of the mask, I thought it would have some sort of fishy smell; luckily it didn't. Ew that would be gross.
So, my face was pretty dry before I used the mask. I'm been using the Olive Young, Jeju Deep Peeling Pad, and it dried my face out pretty bad. Also, the weather has gone super cold here, so I thought it would be a perfect mask to try out. As stated earlier, the mask is supposed to help with dryness and help brighten the skin.
It didn't really help with dryness, or do anything for brightness. I'm pretty sure it's due to the lack of essence left on the mask. I've never seen so much essence left in the packet. Maybe I should have poured it back onto the mask, or smeared it on, but really, I just wanted to shove it on with little effort.
A very disappointing mask, and I definitely won't be buying this one again.
What do you think about "salmon eggs" being a beauty ingredient?
