Who among you loves facial masks? Me! If you’ll get the chance to see what my vanity table looks like, you will see a number of facial masks – sheet masks, overnight mask, mud pack mask, peel-off mask, everything is in there. My sister always tells me that I am already obsessed, but can you blame me? The soft and smooth feeling it gives to your skin after rinsing it off is just so satisfying. But a mask with gold in it? That’s another story.
Snow Aura Whitening Booster Mask is an overnight facial mask. It contains 24k pure gold that makes it very beneficial to the skin. This is actually my first mask with gold in it, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I know that gold can help reduce wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots; it can even lighten your complexion, but I just have to see for myself, right?
The mask was packed in a sturdy plastic container with gold accent making it look classy. An applicator is also included in the box for hygienic purposes – which most of the mask pack doesn’t have.
The mask itself has a creamy texture, light and with minimal scent – like a powder. It is yellowish and becomes shimmery gold when spread onto the face. It doesn’t get dry or anything, the mask will stay as it is the whole time it’s on your face. And since it is an overnight mask, except that your pillows will have a gold stain on it. In fact, that’s the reason why I don’t use it regularly or use it overnight, it tends to get messy in the morning and I am not sure if my skin absorbs all its benefits or if my pillows did. Instead, I use it in the morning, leave it for at least 15-20 minutes before rinsing it off.
But the real question here is: “Is it effective?” “Does it really whiten the skin?”
After using it for a month, I’d say that it is effective, but it doesn’t whiten the skin, it brightens the skin. The effect is instant, after I wash it off, my skin is much brighter all throughout the day, and it has a healthy glow going on as well. However, the effect is not long-term, especially if you are not using it every day. My skin always goes back to its original complexion at the end of the day. So far, I still haven’t noticed any changes on my skin tone, perhaps it has something to do with how I use it. Hence, the lack of before and after photo in this review. Still, an instant brighter skin is a good thing.
