Review: Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask

Today review is on Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask.

This is a new mask experience to me. It's fun to use and skin looks healthy shiny. The next day, my skin feels and look moisturized. But it does not help in even out skin tone, blackheads, pores and acne scar.

My Review
Was shopping at Althea when I saw this product having big sale. Gold!!! It caught my attention. Since it's having sale, decided to try it. :)

The product came in a black box printed with some Egyptian lady image on it.

The mask itself is also place in a similar pattern black container.On the cover itself, printed with Egyptian lady image plus Egyptian language symbol. Look very classy to me.

There is a lid covering the mask. Without opening it, I can already see thin little gold mask forming around the lid. So excited to see it

But when I open the lid, I go wow!!! My first impression was that the gold mask looks like gold color wall paint. :P

It is gold in color and have a very thick liquid texture. There is a very light cosmetic smell to it. Not fragrance but not to the extant of smelly. One thing is that you won't really smell a thing during application.

For a texture like this, the scoop provided is really not that useful as it will drip off the scoop easily. So really need to be careful when using the scoop. 
Not easy to scoop as it will drip.
For me, I use the scoop to scoop up the mask, take the mask from the scoop using my fingers and apply it onto my face.  

I won't say it is easy to apply this mask. I will only say you need practice to apply this mask perfectly. 
Experimenting on my hand.
There are a few advice for applying this mask:
  1. Take care not to mask onto your hair as it is really difficult to remove it after that as it will stick onto your hair when dried up.
  2. With Singapore hot weather, better to do it in air-con room. Otherwise your own sweat will melt the mask into clay and it won't dry up for you to remove. Become sticky to remove especially around forehead and nose area.
The mask feels cool during application and it does not produce a tight feeling when it dries up like other peeling mask.

Well............looking at myself in the mirror, I really look like those Shaolin 18 Bronze men (少林十八銅人). Look so funny to me. LOL.
Applying the mask onto my skin.
It is easy to know when it is dry. Just touch it using your hands. You will feel a layer of bouncy mask just covering your skin.

Peeling off is fun too and I don't have to wash my face after peeling off. :) The mask is actually rubbery and stretchy when it dries up. I can feel it when I peel it off.

After removing, my first reaction is "Nothing special leh!" I thought I should see more but the very obvious different is that my face looks more shiny. My skin is able to absorb my skin care products better after that.

There is no effect on pores tightening, skin tightening, black heads, scars and etc. It is not particularly useful for improving skin hydration too.

I thought that's it for the effect of the mask until the next day. When I wake up, my skin looks renewed. And it does not look and feel like a just woke up skin. My skin looks like I have already done my clean up and applied skin care products when I actually have not done anything to it.
