Super Aqua Abalone Essence Mask by Tosowoong

Super Aqua Abalone Essence Mask by TosowoongThis is my third Abalone mask. I started with the Blithe Mask this closely resamples. You can read about that here. If you are interested in hydro gel with Abalone as the star then check out the Yeon. It ranks among the prettiest of all the Abalone mask packages! I'm years into using snail masks and honestly I've used more than five horse oil masks so I guess I'm just drawn to the things I haven't seen as much. Plus abalone shells are just so pretty. I would love to have skin as lovely as those shells man. So how did this mask work out?
Well lets start with what the mask is meant to do for the skin. I checked out memebox for information.
"Too much sebum production can lead to more skin problems like blackheads and acne. Begin freeing your skin from excessive sebum clogging your pores with Tosowoong Abalone Essence Mask. Abalone is more optimized for proper hydration balance and nourishment while fully infusing the skin with marine collagen to enhance elasticity and texture. It also absorbs excessive sebum to prevent pores from being clogged. This mask features rich concentration of essence derived from abalone and other natural ingredients to provide optimum benefits to the skin. Feel smoother, softer and firmer skin in just one use with the Abalone Essence Mask!" -memebox
I used to be skeptical about firmer skin in just one use until I met my beloved Manyo Ampoule. These days I'm a believer but I do know the results are temporary.
Now to check out what's inside the pretty package.Water, Glycerin, PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer, Niacinamide, Abalone extract (1,000 ppm), Pinus Palustris Leaf Extract, Ulmus Davidiana Root Extract, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Flower Extract, Pueraria Lobata Root Extract, Erythritol, Panthenol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Allantoin, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Natto Gum, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Adenosine, Xanthan Gum, PEG-14M, Hydroxyethylcellulose, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Disodium EDTA, Illicium Verum (Anise) Fruit Extract, propanediol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance -memebox

Cool. COSDNA Turned up zero red flags which I think might be a first for a mask. If not a first it's still super rare man. Still scan the list just in case you are sensitive to something in it. COSDNA is a resource not an infallible list of guarantees. Individual sensitivities may vary.
How to use it?
The directions say to put it on skin that has been cleansed and toned and leave on for 15-20 minutes. This mask actually notes that you can leave it one longer for better results. Yes please! Then just pat in any remaining essence and move along with your routine.
How did it go?
Super Aqua Abalone Essence Mask by TosowoongSuper Aqua Abalone Essence Mask by TosowoongWell the mask much like the Sea Cucumber Mask was much less fragrant than many Tosowoong products. I think it smelled more like light cologne perhaps of the sea inspired variety than the actual ocean but again this mask isn't advertised as aromatherapy. Plenty of essence, clear thin but not drippy. The material is also thin but not so much that it tears easily. Not the fanciest sheet around though so I'm not sure why it's priced about the propolis and snail type varieties. I see it as advertised as premium and I just kind of want more to back that up.  I'm picky.  4/5
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!
Available from MEMEBOX*  for $3 and currently listed for $2.50
