Welcome to the Friday Face mask. Today I decided to go with the Sweet Chef Kale + Vitamin B fresh Pressed Sheet mask (retail $3.50 per mask). It came in my IPSY Ultimate box for February (the box review will be posted Monday).
The reason I decided to use this one today was because I wanted to do a comparison. Last month I received the Sweet Chef Kale + Vitamin B Serum in an IPSY box and I still have a little of the serum left.
If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend it. It is a great serum. The thin dropper is probably going to drive me mad, but the product is good. With sheet masks I always wonder if the serum is the same as the serum applied to the sheet.
In this case, I don’t think it is. The serum is slightly different in color and smells a little different. It does not smell as fresh and green as the bottled serum. It still smelled nice, but it didn’t have the same intensely green scent. I was hoping they were the same as IPSY sent a three pack of masks, Ginger and Beet being the other two, and I figured it would let me know if I wanted to purchase and try those serums.
But this is about the Kale mask. So first the claims…
The Sweet Chef Kale + Vitamin B Fresh Pressed Sheet Mask dishes ultimate hydration for selfie-approved results. Superfood kale and vitamin B are combined to calm, nourish, and moisturize skin, serving up an instantly hydrated and glowing complexion.
Pretty standard as far as claims go, so I ripped open the package and unfolded the mask. The sheet mask is a bit different than other masks. It is thicker and more cloth like and really molds to the skin. It didn’t slip or curl and I believe it is biodegradable, which I really like. It stayed in place and was quite refreshing to wear. The serum absorbed well and instead of rested I felt rather invigorated after taking my twenty minute Friday afternoon mask break.
I really enjoyed this mask even if it wasn’t the same as the bottled serum. Since I liked both of them I am hoping that I will like the other two sheet masks. If I do, I think I would probably enjoy those serums as well since it seems like the serum in the bottle is a super amped up version of what is on the mask. As I am trying to work through my stack of sheet masks, I probably would only use them as an indication of my like or dislike for the serum rather than purchasing them individually.
Now invigorated from by break, I am going back to work to see if I can close out a few things before I start getting ready for valentine’s dinner. Tonight is a candle lit dinner for two at Chez Moi. The chocolate mousse is already chilling in the fridge and the lamb chops and veggie sides won’t take that long to complete. I just have to move the stack of junk mail from the table and I will be set. I just have one last editing job to clear from my slate and then I will begin. I hope everyone out there has a great Valentines night as well.
