I went cycling this morning without any sunblock and long pants and now I regret it so much! Just when I thought the weather will be cloudy the whole day, I got a sunburn on my face and nose after three hours of cycling. I could feel the burning sensation on my face when I wash my face. Especially on my cheeks, the area that tends to be more oily than other areas.
When I gently wash my face, it hurts so badly. I definitely need a mask badly to soothe and refresh my skin. I immediately put on Mentholatum Botanics Flora & Fruit Mask #Refreshing & Nourishing as this is the one and only mask that I tagged along with me this week, my only saviour to my skin.
From the packaging itself, we can clearly tell the main key ingredients for this mask, which are camellia and shea butter. I literally googled the camellia flower and I found a statement explaining about the benefits of camellia oil, it is an excellent emollient for keeping skin and hair moist and supple. Camellia oil is rich in essential vitamins and minerals as well as oleic acid (also found in olive oil) and omega-9 fats. It is a natural source of antioxidants and vitamins like vitamin A and B. They help to improve skin elasticity, nourish skin cells, and prevent the formation of wrinkles and fine lines and guess what it’s also very useful against sun damage! Now I need it so badly to save my skin.
I don’t think I need to explain much about shea butter as it is found in most body lotions. Shea butter has rich antioxidant properties and is rich in many vitamins & nutrients. Applying a shea butter face mask can help rejuvenate your skin and maintain a healthy glow.
How to use:
Suitable for all skin types. Apply sheet mask on cleansed face, remove after 10-15 minutes, gently massage remaining essence into face and neck until fully absorbed.
To me, this is a normal mask and does not really help my burned skin. But it definitely nourished my damaged skin from the sun. Still I would say that it is suitable for daily use for those who want to achieve a refresh and hydrating skin. In terms of scent, its good and no comment as it does not contain any strong smells or strong alcohol. Rate 3/5 for this product. Recommended to who looking for reasonable price of facial mask, this is it!
