Fucus vesiculosus Extract – this is a brown seaweed, also known as Bladderwrack. It is found in abundance along Pacific and Atlantic coastlines. It is used to help improve skin tone, skin elasticity and reduce cellulite. Interestingly, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center states that bladderwrack extracts has chemopreventive properties, which means that they prevent the spread of cancer cells – cool! It is used as an anti-oxidant and detoxifying agent in skincare. It also has a water-binding effect which helps skin to retain moisture and stay hydrated – this aids in its anti-aging effect.

- Cute packaging – I liked the colours, cartoon and unique shape
- Very mild scent – not overwhelming at all
- Rayon mask – easy to put on and fits face shape well
- No tingling sensation, no irritation
- Cooling to skin
- Stuck on pretty well – was able to towel dry and comb hair while it was applied however found the jawline and chin areas picked up and had to be smoothed down again
- Skin felt dry after removal
- No noticeable difference to skin immediately after removal or next day after use
My Review :
2/5 stars because there was no immediate difference and skin felt dry after use.
The packaging was easy to open and the mask was not slippery to apply. There was a mild scent but not overwhelming – was pleasant. My skin felt cooled, there was no associated tingling or irritation. I kept it on for 25 minutes.
After taking it off, there was some extra essence which I tapped into the skin. However, my skin felt dry and while my skin looked clean (partly because I cleansed my face before applying the mask), I did not see any difference.
The following day, again no noticeable difference whatsoever.
