Product tested by Yashoda and Arlini.

Name of Product :

Anti-Aging Retinol-X by Beauty Solutions. Made in Korea.

From their website :

Retinol-X® Anti-Aging Sheet Mask is an intensive, vitamin enriched treatment, saturated with a potent Vitamin A formula to help improve the look of your skin’s firmness and tone while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The mask adheres to the face for targeted treatment and visible results. For best results, use 2-3 times per week.

TRIPLE ACTION BENEFITS:

•Smooths fine lines & wrinkles

•Improves the look of firmness & tone

•Restores radiance & glow

Unique Ingredient :

Retinyl Palmitate: this is Vitamin A. Although similar in spelling to retinol, this is the ester of retinol that is combined with palmitic acid. It is not considered to be the same ingredient but it is converted to retinol, and then to the active component of retinoic acid once it is absorbed by the skin after being topically applied. The unique aspect about this acid is that it can penetrate through the outer layers of the skin and repair the lower layers where collagen and elastin are.

Pros :

  • Simple packaging, good instruction, easy to tear open
  • One piece sheet mask – good adherence and fit
  • Well saturated sheet mask

Cons :

  • Odd scent that was overwhelming
  • Caused tingling along the lower part of my face
  • Lack of results

My Review :

⅕ stars due to odd scent, tingling and poor result.

Packaging : Very simple but with good instructions in English and French. Easy to tear open.IMG_7079

Product : One piece cotton/cellulose sheet Mask. Good adherence and fits face contours well. Comes well saturated but very little fluid left in packaging. Has a scent – smells like Tea Tree like which is an odd smell especially since it has no tea tree in it! I did notice some tingling especially on the lower part of my face.

I kept it on for 20 minutes.

After removal : Only noticeable change is that my skin looked hydrated.

Following day : Nothing – skin back to normal.
