Ok, I know that’s a bold statement but if you stick around long enough, you’ll find out why. As someone who constantly blogs about skincare products, you would probably have figured out by now that skin care is important to me. Not only does a great skincare routine ensure that your skin looks better but it is ESSENTIAL for fighting the signs of aging. Sheet masks are perfect for that!
The Reason Good Skin Care Is Important…..
Because as we age, and I’ll spare you the long drawn out, scientific explanation, our skin looses elasticity so it becomes even more important to stay hydrated. Hydrated skin will remain flexible and allow our protective barrier to remain intact.
Since When uses bio-cellulose sheets, the hydrating formula is able to work more effectively than most skin products when it comes to hydration. I’ll talk more about that in a minute.
When I got this in the mail the other day I immediately opened one up and tried it because I had a long day and needed some R&R.
The packaging is sleek with a nice design and light weight which is great for traveling. Each “package” contains 1 sheet mask with instructions on the back on how to apply.
Snow Magic –
Which comes in the blue packaging, has aloe vera which is a great natural ingredient for calming and soothing skin.
Which comes in the green packaging, (my favorite) has a nice coconut scent and uses the coconut base to even out skin tones and provides a great base for applying makeup.
Who Is When?
In their own words….
“When, launched by J.C People in July 2011, is a premium face mask brand taking extra care of your skin at anytime, anywhere, in any situations. High-quality and unique, our face masks have been receiving overwhelming responses from overseas buyers. Headquartered in Korea, we have successfully started our international expansion in November 2012 by launching in the US via the world’s largest cosmetics sales channel, Sephora. We have further expanded to reach Europe, China, and the Middle East. We strive to become a worldwide leading face mask brand.
Our mission is to develop and deliver sustainable, high value-adding products with innovative functions and creative design. We want to offer reliable products with:
1) low irritation risk and 2) high effectiveness that consumers can buy with 3) confidence.”
How To Use…..
Wash your face with a gentle skin cleanser and dry before applying the mask. There’s three layers of this sheet mask, so I would suggest first taking the hardest layer on the back off. This will reveal the jelly-like formula that’s infused with the mask.
Place the exposed formula side carefully onto your face and position it so that it forms perfectly to the shape of your face avoiding your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Lastly, peel of the front layer. This last layer is kind of hard to see because it’s more transparent than the first hard layer located on the back.
So, to recap how to put the mask on, you peel the hard part of the back and the transparent thin part off of the front, so basically, the actual mask will be in the middle of those two.
The mask instructions suggest removing the mask after 30 minutes. You can follow their directions and that’s fine but I left mine on for 2 hours and felt like I got more out of it when I left if on that much longer (don’t be alarmed if the mask feels a bit tight after the 2 hours, it won’t hurt when you peel it off).

Finally, The Results……
Before I get into the results I need to tell you a little bit of background info first. I’ve never talked about one skin problem that has actually been the BIGGEST problem to me when it comes to my skin imperfections.
No, it’s not dryness or acne or oiliness or any problems such as those that most people deal with. My biggest insecurity with my skin is my skin tone. It’s uneven and very red due to years of my ignorant non-use of sunscreen.
Seriously, I used to go to a tanning salon when I was a teenager and tan for hours on end with no sunscreen what so ever and mind you, I did all of this while also being on acne products that contained salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide! If you’ve ever had to deal with any form of acne in your life, then you know this is a huge MISTAKE!
Ever since then no matter how many products I’ve tried or how much sunscreen I wore, nothing could completely relieve me of my redness!
I’ve tried sheet masks in the past and while some of them did hydrate my skin, they did nothing to rid me of the redness. That is until I tried the Glamour Base mask that I’m talking about today!
I can’t even tell you how relieved I am to finally have found a product that can help me with this!! I know you’re probably thinking that because I got this for free, I must be lying. I swear on my life that it is that GOOD!
I liked Snow Magic as well but Glamour Base is what really did it for me!
