My sheet mask buying logic is pretty simple. If it’s something I’ve never seen and/or has attractive packaging then chances are that I’ll be lusting over it! Completely shameless, I am. So that’s what happened yesterday while trawling through an asian beauty store in my city when I happened across this Vital White Mask by Vivlas. Plus, y’know, throw me and my never ending love affair with brightening masks and it made its way into my basket pretty quickly.
It claims to offer skin brightening “with intense care of black complex and vita complex” which I’m unsure what means since the mask itself is... er, white. It comes backed with simple mesh and fits like a dream, the sheet is thin and adheres very well. The fragrance is one I can’t quite place. Floral for sure, and strong at first but nothing I could really smell once it was on my face. Niacinamide seems to be the heavy lifter in this masks essence although it includes an abundance of extracts including 1000 ppm of black tea, willow bark, blackberry, , grape, rice, soybean ferment, licorice root plus a whole lot of other extracts that I can’t possibly fit into an IG review! Pretty impressive resume it’s got here though. Other more “sciencey” stuff like hyaluronic acid are included too.
Now the important thing - results! And they were fabulous! Sometimes I have to really squint and pull a few of what I’m sure are highly attractive poses in my mirror to find out if a mask has had any effects and often wait until the next morning to make a final call. This was instant though, the brightening and evening of my skintone was impossible to miss. I’m really impressed! The essence was not at all tacky and tapped into my skin with ease. The mask was on the pricier side in AUD and I’m assuming because of it’s extensive natural ingredients list but it gave me bang for its buck. I would love to purchase more of these, preferably in a boxed set!
