One Step Gel

Every time I hear the name CY Labs, I envision a futuristic lab where a super villain is about to be born. In reality, CY Labs creates wonderful skincare products. Today I will be reviewing the CY Lab Triple Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Moisturizing Repair Mask.  I received this product from Amabie in exchange for my honest opinion and I have not received any monetary compensation for this review.

The CY Lab Triple Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Moisturizing Repair Mask was labeled by CY Labs as a "Top Luxury Mask". The packaging confused me a bit at first. Just by looking at the front of the package, I was unable to determine the flavor of the mask. It was just labeled "Top Luxury Mask". On the back there was a list of three different mask flavors with a green dot next to "Triple Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Moisturizing Repair Mask". Interesting. I have never seen a company that uses this method of packaging. I can see it being beneficial for smaller companies to have less packaging and design costs for their products.

The mask itself, as you can see above has a very limited ingredients list. Eight ingredients, including water. That is rather impressive.

 

The mask smelled really good, like a fresh cut apple. Nice, crisp and clean. The essence was very watery and the mask was soaked. I had to keep a towel near me because I was dripping. On my face, the essence seemed to dry pretty fast. It was dry in parts around the 30 minute mark which was perfect for me. The mask material was a very thin, delicate material that was a good fit for my face and came on a stabilizing plastic backing.

 

All in all this was a very good mask for my face. Hyaluronic acid is a good ingredient for my skin and this mask left my face hydrated and soft. I would love to explore the other products this company has to offer!

This mask was a blast to play with. I had a hard time keeping it on and had to be slightly reclined to be able to keep it on. You know, through all the laughing. The slightly citrusy mask was good on what parts of my skin the mask stayed on.

I have loved this product since I started doing AB. New use: on my legs after shaving. It works better than any body lotion at preventing winter dry skin itchiness. Seriously, I used to have dry skin so bad after shaving that it hurt to wear tights. No more!

This mask seemed to sting in dry areas where I need to spread my moisturizer better, such as just under my chin and in front of my ears. Instead of momentarily stinging like the J. One Jelly Pack Luminous Mask, the stinging increased. After five minutes, I aborted my mission and washed my face. The rest of the night my face hurt.

After a few minutes on my face, there was a little stinging where there had been recent blemishes. I did not leave the mask on for more than 15 minutes as the fragrance was starting to irritate my asthma.It just felt awful on my skin. The next day, wherever I had recently had acne, as well as the spots where acne had been in the last month, it was heavily flakey and dry.

 

As soon as I washed the mask off, I could tell a difference. My skin was smoother in texture and was glowing. My pores were visibly smaller and my skin texture was even and soft to the touch. This is definitely my new favorite mask! I have already added another tube to my shopping cart as a back up.

Melt Me Softly

12/31/2016

 

I received this product from PACKage Korea for reviewing purposes, all of the opinions are my own and represent my feelings and experiences with this product. The Melt Me Softly nose strip is not like any other nose strip I have tried. It is soft, not sticky. Four days later, and my pores were still small. This pore strip literally got rid of the sebum in my pores.

 

 

There are no questions about this product.
