If you love pampering as much as I do, then I am pretty sure you love trying out different types of masks and skincare products. However, I am trying to be more aware of the products I put on my skin and I decided to go on a journey of ingredient hunting… I am more than excited to share with you my findings on each product I try and use.
In this post I will be reviewing the Egg Cream – Pore Tightening Mask from Too Cool For School.
When it comes to sheet masks and in order to be able to review the product based only on the experience with the product I will test the mask first and only then I’ll be going through the ingredient list.
Unfortunately I started disliking the product from the very start after opening the pouch and being hit by a strong fragrance. I do not enjoy perfumes in skincare products and I totally hate them when it comes to sheet masks.
There is nothing beneficial when applying perfume on your face, some of those perfumes might contain phthalates or other chemicals that are not listed on the label.
That being said, I really enjoyed the texture of the sheet mask. It was soft, really easy to apply, it covered well the under eye area.
I kept the mask 20 minutes on my face. After removing it I felt a bit disappointed, as it did not work for me, my pores weren’t tightened at all and my face felt kind of itchy the next two hours after usage. Yet, my skin looked hydrated and glowy.
I then started looking at the ingredient list… and I did not like what I saw.
Know your product:
Keep in mind that ingredients are listed in descending order, starting with the largest quantity in the product and ending with the lowest.
I love reading about the ingredients and finding out what a specific product contains. I hope we can check together more often the products we use in order to make better choices.
You can click on each ingredient in the list to find out more about it.
Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, PEG-32, Cyclopentasiloxane, Niacinamide, Glycereth-26, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Dimethicone, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Polysorbate 60, Cetearyl Alcohol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Arginine, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Water, Albumen Extract, Egg Yolk Extract/Extrait de jaune d’oeuf, Myrciaria Dubia Fruit Extract, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Xanthan Gum, Dextrin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Phenoxyethanol, Panthenol, Sodium Polyacrylate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Linoleic Acid, Ceramide NP, Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance.
Overall, I will not use the sheet mask again.
I feel that – even though this mask contains really good and beneficial ingredients – the amount of chemicals designed only for efficiency (thickeners, preservatives) are too high and outreach the number of ingredients designed for my skin’s health. In addition to that, some of the best ingredients are at the end of the list…
Let me know what you think!
