Aurora Illuminating Mask 💫
The format of this mask is not like any I’ve seen before! See that section up there in the bear’s ear? That’s a concentrated illuminating ampoule that you press down on to release it into the mask—I’m assuming the two essences aren’t shelf-stable when mixed together.
This ampoule has two star ingredients: adenosine and Pequi oil. Adenosine is best known for its effect on wrinkles, as it’s thought to improve crows feet and flagellate frown lines (Abella, 2006). Pequi oil helps increase water content in the top layer of the skin and is rich in vitamin A (Silva Faria et al., 2014). The rest of the mask essence also contains adenosine, plus rice bran water and liquorice root extract to hydrate the skin.
This mask does come with a plastic backing because the sheet itself is so thin. It fits really, really well though. After 20 minutes, I removed it and noticed only a slight stickiness which faded quickly. There’s a slight fragrance from the linalool and citronellal included, but it’s not very noticeable. The day after, my skin feels well-hydrated indeed!
My overall rating of this mask is going to be a 9/10 because of the excess packaging, which I don’t really think is all that necessary.
