I recently received some Dior Diorsnow skincare products and the first one I want to tell you about is Dior Diorsnow White Reveal Extreme Cooling Gel Mask with Icelandic Glacial Water. The name implies it to be a gel mask, so you might think it’s in a tube where you squeeze some gel out, apply and wash off. It’s not. It’s a sheet mask, but feels like jelly, literally. A soft jelly out of the fridge! Intriguing? Imagine my first impression when I expected nothing of this sort. I was literally wow-ed by it. I don’t use a lot of sheet masks, and this is something totally new to me. I’m still enamoured by it.
The packaging of this set of masks is not unlike an album. It looks a lot like a book with cover. You take out the album from the cover and you can see a set of 6 masks, separated into upper part and lower part for the face. This is to ensure a better fit as all facial shapes are different. Each mask is held inside a foil bag like so…
The gel mask plays hide and seek with you. The first time I opened it, I was expecting to see white masks so I had to look carefully to find the translucent gel mask inside. You have to be careful when handling the mask especially if you have long nails. You might accidentally poke a hole in it, and it’ll rip apart. How did I know? Experience, babe >.< The floppy jelly mask is wet and cold, certainly not for the squirmish. However, I thought it’s so cool! I put on the mask and my face gets a cooling feeling after the first 15 seconds. Melanin production is slowed down and absorption of the Diorsnow skincare I apply after this mask is boosted.
I cropped the ingredients for you but you have to click on the picture to enlarge it.
I was contemplating whether to show you this photo but what the heck. This is how I look like with the gel mask on. Don’t laugh. It takes courage to put it up, yo! I couldn’t look at the camera with a straight face, hence this. It’s a little small for my wide face but you couldn’t really tell where the edges are, can you? I also like that the mask covers part of my lids. I apply this, lie down on my bed, close my eyes for 10 to 15 mins and take it off. I massage the remaining serum into my face and my face looks so bright and fresh!
Here’s a picture I took right after I took off the mask. See how bright my bare face is? I have nothing on, haven’t applied the rest of the skincare yet, and the only thing I did was brighten the photo for you. My skin tone looks more even nowadays, and skin has calmed down a lot, save the open pores at the side of my fat nose, but let’s just stop right here. I don’t want to jinx myself.
The instruction says to use this once a week for 6 weeks for brighter looking skin. Truthfully, I can’t wait for next week to come. This set of masks retails for RM355 and is available at all Dior counters nationwide. The Diorsnow line might be Asia exclusive, so if you see it in your country, I’d appreciate it if you’d let me know
Are you tempted to try?
