I don't drink milk but if you tell me a product contains milk I'm freaking all over it. What is wrong with me? Goat milk has a special draw because I've been using various goat milk soaps and bath powders on and off for years. I also love the creepy effect of a black mask. It scares the house mates. I had heard some good things about these over on r/asianbeauty so I had to snap some up. Ready to see what I thought?
This mask boasts diamond powder (again,) goat milk (from New Zealand0, and charcoal as star components. It's meant to brighten, hydrate, and "purity" the skin. This should make it excellent for acne without being a "kill it with fire" type treatment. I like the idea of a mask that's meant to hydrate while preventing acne. Its' a skin treatment rather than a punishment.
How do you use it?
Apply the mask to clean skin and leave on for 15-20 minutes to allow the essence sink in.

contents: Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Niacinamide, Butrispermum Parkii (shea) butter, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Simmondsia Chinesis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Trehalose, Glyceryl Stearate, Hydrolyzed Collegen, Sodium Hyaluronate, Carbonated Water, Argania Sinosa Kernel Oil, Lactocaillus/Soybean Ferment EXtract, Saccharomyces/Viscum Album (Mistletoe) Ferment Extract, SAccharomyces/Imperata Cylindrica Root Ferment Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Panthenol, PEG-100 Stearate, Acrylates/C 10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Goat Milk Extract, Diamond Powder, Pearl Powder, Calendula OFficinalis FLower EXtract, Aloe, Barbadensis Leaf EXtract, Portulaca Oleracea EXtract, Argginine, Carbomer, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance (again I type all this out myself. On a role here...)
Watch out if you are sensitive to PEG-100 Stearate, Jojoba seed oil, Carbomer, Butylene Glycol, or anything else in the mask. Some people are sensitive enough that they need to patch test mask essences. If this is you I recommend snipping a corner of a the package, clipping the bag shut, and then placing the mask in the fridge. Sheet masks aren't meant to be saved once opened and so in the name of protecting the quality of the experience in the face of limited preservatives I would not recommend long term patch testing before using the mask unless you are able to toss multiple masks to do it...
How did it work out for me?
Well I've said it before I'm sort of a sucker for the black masks. I don't know why I just like the opacity. I think it helps me not be as annoyed by the wrinkles in the material. This mask is on the thicker side but not so thick that it doesn't conform to the face. The cling was not second skin worthy but I also didn't have a ton of slipping around. No mask cover required here.
The essence is milky but on the thinner side for a milky essence. Many milky essence masks are more lotion textured but this one looks milky and feels watery. There is a slightly oily texture that makes me think of well... milk. It doesn't seem to have a noticeable fragrance to me at all. I've used this mask more than once and I still can't pick up a scent.
The mask was very well soaked in essence but there wasn't enough for a second mask tablet. The mask stayed damp for nearly an hour.  I like to get the most of of my masks. On hotter days it takes a little longer to absorb but it does absorb and my face never felt like it had a gross sticky layer after use. Despite the thinner texture of the essence I found the mask pretty hydrating. I think actually those with less lizard like skin might be able to skip out on too many additional hydrating layers. My skin was tranclucent and glory the whole next day. This mask is a winner! I've also used it on breakouts to see if the charcoal claims have any effect. I can't swear it is the charcoal working here but it did decreases the redness of active spots and they quickly flattened (though the flattening is due more likely to my Pocketderm prescription I'm sure the mask helped.)
I give this mask a 3.5/5. If it were easier for me to find at a more reasonable price I would rate it higher but my searching has only found the masks for $5 for one or $20 for a 5 pack. For that price I'm looking for more lucky from my masks. I've heard these can be found at TJ Max on occasion for a decent price. I'm overwhelmed by the environment of that store but if I happen to come across these masks when venturing out I would pick them up on sale.
1- I want both my money and the time I spent using this product back. It should never be used and if I encounter another in my collection it goes to the trash bin.
2- The product is nothing special but not horrible. I would use it again or give it away if I got it as a free sample.
3-The product is nice enough but I would not repurchase because I have many better options. May be better suited for others
4-I really like this and would likely repurchase if I do not find something better.
5-I love this product and it has become a staple in my collection.
So now you know what the numbers mean!
