DERMAL Red Ginseng Collagen Essence Mask

Today should be a relaxing day for me. I’m not looking forward to being back at work in a week but that’s life. It felt too short really. I took part in the after Christmas sales yesterday at Hobby Lobby and would like to check out Target at some point. I already got some Christmas cards for a decent price at Costco earlier so anything else will just be extra. I tried on a sheet mask I’ve been putting off as I’m not a fan of the Chinese medicinal scents and I thought it’d smell like that. Here’s my take on the DERMAL Red Ginseng Collagen Essence Mask.

First thoughts? The scent!!! The first thing that came to mind when I took a whiff is boiled peanuts. After smelling it for a bit, it’s not quite boiled peanuts as there’s a note in it that makes me think of medicinal root but first impression is definitely boiled peanuts. That non-boiled peanut note though….Do. Not. Like. But I could tolerate it, so I slapped it on and the scent dissipated less than 10 seconds for me. I left it on until it felt dry to the touch and it dried down really nicely. I was able to put my face moisturizer on without waiting too long. My face looked healthy but nothing extraordinary.

Any negatives? While I have a love-hate relationship with the scent (I love the scent of boiled peanuts!), nothing else about this makes me want to repurchase it. I didn’t get an awesome glow or extreme hydration from it. My skin looked like how it would with a bunch of other sheet masks I’ve tried — moisturizes well but nothing else on top off that.
