|Skintreat Spa by Look Beauty Intensive Lip Care Gel Patch Mask ($9.99/4)|
Product provided for review.
I love trying out face masks, and sheet masks are a favorite of mine because they are just so easy to use. The mask I am reviewing today is a sheet mask for the lips - Skintreat Spa by Look Beauty Intensive Lip Care Gel Patch. While Look Beauty does make some interesting masks (like this foot mask), I have to admit I was quite intrigued by the idea of a lip mask. I did a bit of looking around on the internet, and apparently, these sort of masks are quite commonly available in Asia, but it is new to me. This is a gel-based mask enriched with moisturizing ingredients like shea butter, cranberry extract, jojoba oil and vitamin E and claims to intensely hydrate and soothe dry, cracked, chapped lips and add long-lasting moisture to the lips. Scroll on for more photos and my thoughts on this fun lip mask.

This is an extremely thin and slippery mask and tends to slip around a bit.

The Look Beauty lip mask is a thin gel-based mask. It is available as a pack of 4 individually packed, single-use masks. Inside each packet, the mask itself is packed in a transparent plastic cover. Because this is a gel-based formula, there is no dripping, gooey essence/lotion in the mask, but the mask itself is quite slippery and thin. To use, pick the mask and place it with the shiny side toward the lip. Since it is a bit flimsy and floppy and moves around so much, I have no clue which the shiny side is by the time I get it on to my lips. Anyway, once placed on the lip, the mask stays on there without any issues and will not fall off. The mask doesn't dry out even if you leave it open and out of the packet for a whole day, so it's not going to dry out on the lip. I just leave it on for the recommended 20 minutes and then discard the mask. I didn't have any extra lotion left behind on the lips to massage in either. As for results, the mask does leave my lips smooth and moisturized, though it is not a long-term fix. It gives instant results, but if you have very dry, chapped lips like I do, this is not going to be a "cure."

Overall, the Look Beauty Intensive Lip Care Gel Patch Mask is easy and fun to use. It does leave my lips feeling smooth and nourished, and it's a good mask to use if I want to prep my lips before using a matte lipstick or any other lip product that tends to accentuate lip lines. I suspect this would also be my husband's favorite mask since it keeps me quiet for a good 20 minutes :D
