The mask to be reviewed today is the @annieswayofficialtaiwan Calendula + Chamomile Softening Jelly Mask! I received this from the @skinvestmentofficial event back in November. I am quite excited to try this as I heard about it a few years ago and never got a chance to try it! . . *I received the product for free in exchange for my honest opinion* . . The mask is to moisturize, soften and reduce skin discomfort. It is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive & dry skin . . Notable ingredients to me was Sodium Hyaluronate, as it's always the ingredient that I gravitate toward. There is also chamomile and calendula extracts. Not sure what they mean by flavour though. 😅 . . 🌼 Scent: light herbal scent, nondiscernible after a few minutes. . . 🌼Material: Gel like. Easily spreadable and doesn't budge once it's on. I can move around and do things! . . 🌼Fit: Spread to fit your face. It is recommended to apply evenly, at approximately 0.3 to 0.5cm. I had leftover mask so it should be sufficient for a bigger face . . 🌼Time: Recommended to remove it after 15 to 30 minutes. Scrap it off gently, wipe off excess with tissue and rinse with water. However, only 5 minutes is recommended if it's first time using the jelly mask, especially if you have sensitive skin . . 🌼Results/Ramblings: I removed it after 25 minutes, and noticed areas where skin is exposed. This is most likely bc I didn't do an even layer and the mask has been absorbed . . The removal process was painless as the mask was still soft and came off easily. Scraping with the spoon felt like I was massaging my face and I felt so relaxed . . However, my skin felt tight where there is still residual mask. Hence the recommendation to rinse afterwards. The tightness went away after the rinse . . My skin looked less red and the angry breakout at the hairline is a lot calmer. And skin feels soft! I didn't moisturize for rest of the day and skin still felt soft . . I liked the experience but not a big fan of having to wash it off. Probably will only buy the single use packs because the big tubs are a commitment that I don't want to make 😂 I'll probably try rose and the HA version if I do repurchase
