DERMAL Q10 Collagen Essence Mask

It’s been a very busy week so far. I was eager to meet up with one of my closest friends (we see each other as sisters) for dinner earlier in the week. Our other sister is in Canada — we miss her very dearly. Our sisters dinners aren’t the same without her. One day we will all be reunited for a good long while but for now technology keeps us in touch. Even so, we do feel the distance greatly. It’s just the ebb and flow of life. Anyway, here’s today’s post on the DERMAL Q10 Collagen Essence Mask.

DERMAL Q10 Collagen Essence Mask

First thoughts? The first thing I noticed about it is the scent. It isn’t repulsive to me and it wasn’t on the strong side. It makes me think of vitamin C in a pill form (like, not sweet at all). I think I detect some bitterness in the scent but it isn’t medicinal to me at all. This is one of the 39 sheet masks in a set that I got on Amazon during the last Prime Day. I find that there is less essence in this packet. I find that I don’t need to ever-so-gently squeeze the packet while fishing out the sheet mask with this brand as it doesn’t come out dripping everywhere. This sheet mask fits my face well and the cotton material is pretty thick. Let’s talk about the cuts in the sheet mask that helps with the fitting. DERMAL sheet masks have 4 cuts: 2 by the ear on each side at the height of my cheekbones and 2 at the bottom by either side of the chin (from the corner of the lips diagonally down to the chin marks the spot for me). This enables the user to adjust the sheet mask to fit their face better. I wish they do have one more cut for in between the eyes on either side of the mask (top of nose bridge area) as I manually tear it always to make the sheet mask lay flat there. I take it off only when it’s dry to the touch so it can take a while. While I have some leftover essence in the packet that I can use for my morning or night skincare routine, I leave only a small amount for up to 2 uses as the essence in the packets are not meant to last long from what I understand. As to the effects I see from using this sheet mask — I thought the complexion of my face looks much better after use, brighter even. Not bad and definitely more than I expected from one-time use of a sheet mask.

Any negatives? Other than the scent that I’m not really a fan of, nothing really. It feels moisturizing and refreshing while on my face. I would probably get one if I need to pick something else after those from this brand that are on my definitely repurchase list.
