Name of Product :
Amino Moisture Mask by Leaders. Made in Korea. 25 ml.
Unique Ingredients/Material :
Translated from the Korean packaging : It replenishes the lysine component of the amino acid which is the constituent unit of the skin protein, and makes the skin’s natural moisture retention to healthy skin. For dry skin, loss of elasticity, coarse and rough skin EFFECTS: Moisturizing – strengthen skin barrier, improve skin texture.
Amino Acid Complex with Lysine : There are 8 essential amino acids and this mask contains 17 amino acids. Lysine is one of them and it is a key building block of collagen, which we all know, keeps our skin healthy and firm. Lack of amino acids can cause thin skin which is unable to retain moisture to keep hydrated. Lack of hydration can cause rough, dry skin and even wrinkles. While applying amino acids to your skin is beneficial, it is also very important to have them in your diet as well. Some foods high in protein/amino acids are quinoa, lentils, beans, almonds, pistachios, broccoli, and asparagus.
Ceramide : this is a lipid, aka fat molecule, found in the outermost layer of your skin – the stratum corneum. It makes up about 50% of that layer with other constituents such as cholesterol. Their role is to create a barrier to protect the skin and retain moisture.

My Review :
⅖ stars due to lack of change to skin – no noticeable change to skin moisture. Would not repurchase.
Packaging : Simple but in Korean so had to translate to English. Easy to tear open.
The product : Mask itself is well saturated – feels like a thicker fluid than most sheet masks.
Mild fragrance but bearable. Fit well to face. One size. Good contours and openings for eyes and mouth. Probably one of the better fits vs other sheet masks.
While applied : Cooling and soothing sensation. No irritation or tingling. Some extra essence in the packed – enough for neck and shoulders only. Essence mildly sticky but bearable.
Kept on for 25 minutes
After removal : still had essence on skin that look some time to get absorbed. I felt like essence was a bit sticky and it felt thick. Skin felt sort of hydrated – but it felt a bit weird with the thick fluid still on it. Otherwise no big change to skin.
Next day : no change, skin felt the same as usual.
