Flower Beauty Radiance Boosting Sheet Mask ($2.98) is one of three new facial sheet masks the brand introduced to their permanent collection a few short weeks ago.
I find it so interesting that a lot of these newer sheet masks we see popping up from budget beauty brands are actually made in Korea yet they lack the ingredients and formulations we all know and love so much. I have yet to find a facial sheet mask from any US brand that actually worked wonders on my skin and made me sit up and take notice. Most aren’t saturated with enough essence or they have a poor fit or they just don’t produce the visible results I get from some of my favorite Korean brands.
I was excited to see that Drew Barrymore’s Flower Beauty Collection was starting to venture into skincare with the launch of these sheet masks and at $2.98 each I decided to pick one up!
The Flower Radiance Boosting Sheet Mask apparently contains luminous pearl extract to provides an immediate brightening look. There’s some good ingredients here such as water and glycerin that will hydrate skin as well as niacinamide which is known for it’s ability to ease dullness and even out skin tone. Pearl extract is indeed here as well but quite lower on the list of ingredients.
If you’ve never tried a sheet mask before they are simple a single use mask that’s created using a cotton fiber which is saturated in essence. The masks have a cut out for your eyes, nose, and mouth and can be placed over your face for 15-20 minutes. Typically the results are visible immediately but tend to be fleeting in regards to brightening, easing dullness, etc…although, some masks are created for hydration and can produce very lasting moisturizing results that aid skin to retain water which results in a plumped up and well hydrated skin. It really depends what your mask is formulated for.
Flower Beauty’s mask had a rather poor fit for me since it ran a little smaller and I felt like I had to stretch it towards my ears to get it to completely cover my face. It did adhere well to my skin though and it was saturated quite well with essence. However, I didn’t feel like it produced any long term benefits and only provides very light moisture. Perhaps if I use it often I might find that the niacinamide eased my dullness and perhaps brightened up my overall skin tone but at once use I failed to see any visible results.
I’m a bit meh on it overall and didn’t feel like it offered anything special.
