The Kose Sekkisei Herbal Esthetic Whitening Mask is for intensive whitening care, smoothes the skin to keep it lively and radiant, helps fade the appearance of dark spots to leave skin brighter and even-toned.
I love this mask! It gives my skin immediate effects that I absolutely did not expect for a mask that is left on my face for only one minute.
This mask lives up to what it claims. My skin was instantly brightened and fairer, with a glow on my face. On top of that, it left my cheeks rosy pink. All of that is just 1-2 minutes.
This mask is perfect for a quick fix before any occasion, and even better for regular whitening maintenance. I always have a whitening product in my skincare regime, be it whitening serum, mask or moisturiser. The Herbal Esthetic Mask is one of my favourite whitening products that produce results fast.
I like that Kose included a spatula together with the mask as it is more hygienic since the mask comes in a tub form. The instructions included also state that the spatula can be used to remove the mask but I prefer to slowly massage away the cream mask which helps with blood circulation for radiant rosy skin.
The Herbal Esthetic Mask has a rich texture that is thick and ideal for massaging. As with the rest of the Sekkisei line, it has a whole lot of herbal extracts which help whiten skin and improve the health of our skin. The mask has a light herbal smell to it. Although rich, it does not leave my skin oily, but I have to say that the whitening effects surpass that of any moisturising effects.
A drawback is that it contains alcohol as the first few ingredients, but this does not disturb me as the mask is only left on my skin for 1-2 minutes and I believe it helps preserve all the herbal ingredients in the mask.
The Sekkisei Herbal Esthetic Mask is really convenient to use. I use it while bathing so washing it off is not a problem for me. I have heard of people complaining that it is difficult to wash the mask off but I massage it while rinsing it away so this is not a problem for me.
The mask come is a tub of 150ml, and although I remember it being a bit expensive, I find that it is well worth the price I paid for it (I cannot remember the exact price).
All in all, I really like this mask for the effects it produces, which is the most important factor in any skincare product. It leaves my skin fairer and radiant.
