The Mask Review

This Petitefee Gold EGF mask is a souvenir from Korea, and I have used it all up! I did second guess about finishing it, but I also did not want to let it go out of date on me. No regrets there.

Made in Korea, this transparent gel mask contains gold flecks as well as Epidermal Growth Factor. The Gold detox and is a skin tone enhancer, while the EGF promotes cell growth, in theory it reduces signs of aging by getting your own cells to grow more.

It does sound good in theory. How does it stack up in reality?

The answer is pretty well actually. I do not know the dose of EGF or how much gold they have in this, but I leave it on for a long time. Longer than the prescribed 40 minutes. Hence I did feel a good improvement on my skin after each use.

However, the effect does not last long, by next day it my skin’s glow would have dulled. If you are using it for a special occasion, do it closer to the time, like the day of event.

misc 21My only gripe, is that the transparent mask does not conform to my face very well.. You cannot see the little flecks of gold on the picture, I assure you that they are definitely there.

The good part about this mask that it is not full of fluid, and will dry out. The gel stays moist for a long time. I think the longest I left it on was for two hours, as I was reading

Genre: Cooking, Food & Wine

Before you say hang on! I would like to clarify that the cover on the iPad was indeed the cover of the book before the change. Personally, I prefer the one I had, much cleaner. But this second cover is more accurate, and makes me hungrier. Netgalley is a place for ARCs, so not surprising about the change.

  • I like your cover better too, but get it. Weird that the mask doesn’t hug the contours of your face.

    • it is strange, as gel masks go, they usually stick on

  • At least the mask worked even if it was for a short amount of time. That book does make me hungry but I agree, I liked the other cover better.

    • yeah.. it made me hungry too! will be looking forward to buying this book if it ever arrives in australia. good and easy recipes

  • Ooh, I can see the golden glow to it. It looks like it’s hanging off your face though, I wonder if they come in smaller sizes for a better fit. Probably best to use it in the evening or afternoon before a night out so your skin keeps that perky glow. Thanks for sharing Ailyn, I love seeing all these new beauty products you’re testing! <3

    • the masks are usually presents from relatives. It’s a trend now giving sheet masks as souvenir. Have to say at least it is useful
