Name of Mask :

Chinese Peony Sheet Mask. Made in China. By brand BWX? Biowoosoo? – I searched for this mask online for about 3 hours and could not find it ANYWHERE!

Unique Ingredient :

Peony (PAEONIA LACTIFLORA) extract : This is native to east Asia and has been used in herbal medicinal preparations for over 1200 years in Asia. Interestingly enough, in 1998, the Chinese FDA has approved the plant root extract as a disease-modifying treatment in Rheumatoid Arthritis as it treats pain, inflammation and improves micro-circulation. In regards to skincare, the bark and sap is mainly used and the peony is referred to as the “Queen of Flowers”. It is revered due to Paeoniflorin which has antioxidant used to promote natural healing, soothe and moisturize and is anti-bacterial.

Pros :

  • Cute packaging and easy to tear open
  • No scent
  • Cooling sensation while applied
  • No irritation or tingling
  • Good fit over face
  • One piece sheet for upper and lower face
  • Next day effects

Cons :

  • No immediate difference noticed after removal of the mask
  • Unable to research more about the mask online

My Review :

4/5 stars for the next day effects.

What initially attracted me was the packaging, it was simple and also very pretty.

I also liked that it has English translations on the back. It also had good tips such as putting the mask in 50C water to warm it in winter and putting it into the fridge during summer. It was easy to tear open and the mask was easy to apply. I liked that it was one sheet that fit the face well. There was also no scent which I prefer.

When applied : there was no tingling, irritation and my skin felt very cool.

I kept it on for 20 minutes and after removal I did not find any stickiness to the skin.

I applied extra liquid to neck, shoulders, arms and legs.

Immediately after removal : did not see a huge difference as I expected.

Next day effect : I was surprised that my skin looked visibly brighter, softer and well hydrated. The fine lines also appeared less noticeable and smooth.

Where I purchased it? Cost?

Purchased at a small shop that was stumbled upon in Shanghai, China. Unfortunately do not know the cost of the mask.
