I was quite excited to see the Doctorcos Amino Acid Hybrid Sheet Free Mask* in my January BNT box. It’s a “sheet free” hydrating mask, which simply means that you don’t need to saturate one of those cloth face masks with the product to use it. It’s meant for direct application onto the skin and you can let it sit anywhere from 10 minutes to overnight when used as a bedtime treatment. What’s unique about this mask is that you can also wear it under your makeup during the daytime.
Other than the text that you can see on the box in this photo, there wasn’t too much literature included with the actual product. From the photographed description, you can see that it’s meant to give seven benefits including tightening of the skin, increased elasticity, and intensive moisturizing.
Further research on the internet revealed that this mask is “Alcohol-Free, Ammonia-Free, Contains Minerals, Cruelty-free/No Animal Testing, Fair Trade, Formaldehyde-Free, Perfume-Free, and Silicon-Free.” That made me feel much more comfortable about trying this on my face. Even so, I patch-tested it on my neck one night before I applied it onto my whole face.
It comes sealed, and that is always a good thing! Upon removal of the seal, I noticed that there was no strong fragrance (it is fragrance-free, after all) and that was another good sign for me. The only other intensive moisturizing mask I own works great but smells so gross (to me) that I can’t stand to wear it overnight. This one not only doesn’t have an offensive odor, it also sinks into the skin so fast that you can forget that it’s there. Uncommon for an overnight treatment! The texture is like a thick gel. It spreads easily and definitely creates a barrier once settled in. When I splash water on my face with this on, the water droplets roll off of my face. That said, you will have to use a facial wash when removing this as water alone will not do the trick.
So, does it work? It sure does! I left the mask on my face for ten minutes and my skin was noticeable more plump and moist after I washed it off. Since I have combination skin I will only have to do this twice a week at most. Over all, the Doctorcos Amino Acid Hybrid Sheet Free Mask is a good product. I most especially appreciate that it is fragrance-free and very lightweight. I don’t know that i’ll be using this in the daytime simply because my oily skin doesn’t need that much moisture day-t0-day, but I’m glad I have a moisturizing treatment to use several times a week.
