When TravelMate Essence Gel Face Mask

When Travelmate Essence Gel Sheet Face Masks - Review
When Travelmate Essence Gel Masks ($28)

I love using face masks and I always have at least 3 or 4 different masks with me at any time, but while I find it quite relaxing to put them on and lie down, I definitely don't like the washing up afterwards part.  Yes, it really is no big deal to most people, but I much prefer masks that can be used and tossed - sort of like the peel-off masks.  That's one reason why sheet masks are some of my favorite face masks.  I have tried quite a few of them - most of which I have really liked - and the one mask I always buy is the When Travelmate Essence Gel Mask.  I have always bought this from Sephora, though it doesn't seem to be available there right now :(

The individually packed sheet masks are quite convenient to carry around in the bag or share with a friend.

The mask itself is made of cloth-like paper that is soaked in "essence" - some kind of a hydrating/brightening serum.  It's actually a generous/excessive amount and can seem quite goopy and messy.  The mask has openings cut out for the eyes and mouth.

When Travelmate Essence Gel Face Mask - How to Use - Ingredients
To use, peel of the paper sheets covering the mask on either side, and place the mask on to face.  Leave on for at least 15 minutes.  Remove and discard mask after use.  Massage any remaining serum into the skin.

I discovered these masks some time last year, and I have been buying and using these ever since.  Safe to say I love them!  When makes a bunch of masks, each meant for different purposes, such as brightening, hydrating, etc., and I picked the Travelmate version when my skin was very dry, hoping to get some extra moisture.  Turns out, this mask also does a great job at brightening skin.  The mask is a bit messy to apply since it comes soaked in such a lot of the serum, but once it's on, I can go about doing whatever I want to and the mask stays on without slipping or falling.  I usually leave this on for about 30 minutes and wipe off any remaining serum from my face.  It is recommended to massage the serum in, but I find that I get breakouts if I do that (with any sheet mask).  Since I wipe off the excess serum, I need to follow this up with a light moisturizer, but if you massage in the excess serum, you won't need anything else.  As for results, I find this quite moisturizing and also brightens my face for a day or two.

Do give this mask a try - when it gets back in stock at Sephora - it's a fun mask to try out if you love sheet masks :D

  1. This sounds quite good! I have never tried sheet masks.. bored of using and rinsing away the boring mud packs and cream based thick masks. Time to give these ones a try. Thanks for the review Radhika! :)
