Dr Lewinn’s Private Formula Vitamin & Mineral Nourishing Face Mask utilises Bio-Cellulose Technology, which allows the mask to adhere perfectly to the skin.
This sheet mask promises to be loaded with a highly potent serum of multi-vitamins and minerals, plus Aloe and Avocado Oils to instantly nourish, hydrate and refresh the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple with a more youthful looking complexion. But did it work?
I exfoliated my face and then cleansed with my usual foaming cleanser. I like to exfoliate before doing a face mask, as I want the benefits of the mask to sink into the fresh skin cells on my face and not any accumulated layers of dry, dead skin. It’s just personal preference, but I feel that masks work better on me if I exfoliate first.
Next, I removed the single use mask from the sachet and peeled away one side of the protective mesh film (the sheet mask is sandwiched between two stiff protective sheets). I applied the wet, gel side of the face mask to my face and used my fingertips to smooth it out as well as I could before removing the outer mesh film. Once that was off, I gently repositioned the mask with my fingertips, smoothing it out and making sure that it hugged my face, before grabbing my Kindle so that I could sit and read for 20 minutes while the mask was on.
The fit of the mask wasn’t perfect. The eye holes were okay, the nose was a little too long, which meant that the mouth hole ended up sitting over my bottom lip and chin. I had to push the bottom of the mask up a little, which created uncomfortable creases on my cheeks and ended up riding up under my eyes, but it wasn’t the end of the world … it was only for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes I removed the sheet mask, placed it back in the original packaging and threw all of it away. These masks are single use and cannot be reused. There was a lot of liquid left on my face, and even though the instructions on the sachet said to massage any remaining liquid from the sachet into your skin, there was far too much liquid for me to do that. I just massaged the ample residue left on my face into my skin.
Honestly, I wasn’t blown away by this vitamin sheet mask. I’m not a fan of the clingy, clammy feel of sheet masks, but Dr Lewinn’s gel formula ones are lot better than the traditional old sheet masks that I’ve tried. My skin did look a little more plump and hydrated than usual, but that was only immediately after taking the mask off. The next day my skin looked the same as always does.
I’m not really sure if I’d buy another one of these, although the packaging does recommend using the Vitamin & Mineral mask twice a week for the first month, and then whenever needed thereafter, so to see benefits from this, you have to commit to at least 8 masks in a one month period (which I didn’t know about when I initially purchased this one online).
I have a Collagen Firming mask from Dr Lewinn’s to try next. If you want to give Dr Lewinn’s sheet masks a try, they’re available from selected pharmacies and online.
