Hi everybody! Today’s sheet mask review is going to be from my mom’s perspective because the end user isn’t me but my mom this time. 🙂 Blackberries work amazingly to hydrate skin and come loaded with antioxidants. My mom has a very dry skin and reaches out for moisturizers all throughout the year. So I thought the Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask Blackberry should suit her needs well and asked her to try this mask.
Product Description :
What it is
Get firm and elastic skin with the blackberry It’s real squeeze mask!
1. It’s real squeeze mask – blackberry
The super food blackberry gives your skin protection to make it more healthy.
2. Jeju green complex
The Jeju green complex consists of green tea, tangerine, cactus, camellia leaves, and orchids to keep your skin healthy.
3. Triple-layered sheet
This triple-layer sheet has a long-lasting moisturizing effect so that the essence can gradually be absorbed into the skin.
How to use
1. After washing your face, gently apply toner on your face to even out your skin texture.
2. Then, apply the mask over your entire face, avoiding your eye and lip areas.
3. Remove the mask after 10-20 minutes and gently pat your face to allow the remaining formula to absorb into your skin.
All the Innisfree masks in the It’s Real Squeeze Mask range come priced at INR 100 each. I picked up the blackberry one from Nykaa.
Overview of the Product :
The packaging of Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask Blackberry is same as those of Tea Tree (reviewed here) and Strawberry (reviewed here), but this time its printed blackberries on the front face of the sachet. A very fuss-free arrangement. It’s simple to tear down the packet from the top and take out the mask that is neatly folded inside. The only difference this time was the serum in which it comes drenched in. The serum isn’t watery and transparent like in the previous masks I tried, rather is white in color and has a creamy consistency. This mask too is to be put on post cleansing and toning. It is extremely cooling on the skin and my mom loved the soothing sensation throughout the forty minutes that she kept it on her face.
Post discarding the mask, she massaged the leftover serum on her face till it got completely absorbed by her skin. The immediate result was visible even to me – a very fresh and bright face. Yes, it did brighten her skin and the effect was quite noticeable. The fine lines appeared less but that was just a temporary effect. Mom said the mask hydrated and moisturized her skin to a great extent and she was happy with the way her skin was feeling. The effect lasted on her for around 4 days, that’s good considering the ease of use and availability now. 🙂
A little about the Ingredients :
Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Blackberry Juice(200mg), Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Dimethicone, PEG-100 Stearate, Carbomer, Xanthan Gum, Ethylhexylglycerin, Potassium Hydroxide, Adenosine, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tangerine Peel Extract, Orchid Extract, The green Tea Extract, Camellia Leaf Extract, Prickly Pear Extract, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance
The ingredient list of the blackberry mask is pretty much similar to the others in this range, comprising of highly moisturizing and nourishing components. Benefits of blackberries are known far and wide. They are rich in antioxidants, and contain Vitamins A & C that aid in the production of collagen. Blackberries are deemed excellent when talking anti-ageing. The only ingredient that surprised me this time was Dimethicone. I seriously did not expect silicones in this mask!
The Final Verdict :
Overall, the Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask Blackberry is a good at-home facial treatment to relax and soothe tired skin. It worked on my mom really well and there was a visible change to her skin in a good way that lasted for a few days. Innisfree doesn’t claim tall and big with this mask, and does exactly as it says, hydrating and nourishing the skin. It also did not irritate her skin but made it softer to touch. I, for one, may not try this variant at the moment as winters are over and T-zone back to oily. But I’m loving sheet masks presently, and will try the other variants that should suit my oily-combination skin. 🙂
My Rating : 4.25/5
(I deducted a few points for the presence of silicones, else it deserves a 4.75/5 for the way it works for dry skin)
