Patchology Illuminate FlashMasque - Sheet Mask Review!


Happy Monday my beautiful friends!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing weekend!
I did...and It's all because of a wonderful little face mask!

Yes...Seriously....

Did you know you can actually take a "vacation" just by using a face mask!?

I didn't...until I tried the Patchology Illuminate FlashMasque Sheet mask this past weekend. 


You all know I LOOOOVE my sheet masks....I'm seriously obsessed. I like to think of myself as a "sheet mask connoisseur" since I have tried SO many!

I absolutely JUMPED at the chance to try this new Illuminating Sheet Mask by Patchology.
(Lord knows I need some serious illuminating just about every DAY!)
I had heard rave reviews online about Patchology and their FlashMasques and Energizing Under Eye Patches... so of course....I had to tryout this brand!
 

So what is so special about this sheet mask!?

This illuminating mask uses HydroSurge5 Moisture Technology (Exclusive to Patchology) and combines 5 proven hydrating ingredients with a luxurious mask material to quickly deliver it's powerful effects in just....5 MINUTES!
Yes....in only 5 minutes you can have a smoother, brighter, more even skin tone just from one use of this mask!

Here are a few of the Masks Powerful Hydrating Ingredients and the Benefits:
  • Licorice Extract helps brighten and even skin tone
  • Vitamin C encourages collagen production and improves skin elasticity
  • Grapefruit Seed Extract provides antioxidant protection from environmental toxins
 That's some pretty awesome ingredients right there!


Now on to my review!
 
When I opened the package I immediately noticed the light citrus scent.
This mask smells AMAZING!
If you know me...you know I LOVE my citrus smells!

I absolutely HATE when I use a mask for the first time and the smell is just awful!! If I can't stand the smell...I usually don't even end up putting it on my face. 

When I unfolded the mask, I noticed the sheet felt SOOO soft.
Like...Baby fuzzy blanket soft! 
You know how you just want to rub those fuzzy blankies all over your face because they are so soft and fluffy!?
Yeah...this mask feels 
JUST. LIKE. THAT!

Out off all the sheet masks I've tried (And I've tried a ton)...This one is definitely the best smelling and the softest!
I have literally never felt a sheet mask this soft! 
Most of them feel super thin and papery or sometimes stiff, but this just felt... ultra luxurious!

Since it is a sheet mask, you just drape the sheet over your clean and dry face.
And then naturally you take a mask selfie...haha!

Doesn't that mask just LOOK soft!?
I wish this picture had scratch and sniff too so you could smell it!

This mask stays put really well so you can actually go about your business and get some things done while you wait for your 5 minutes to be up. 
...Or you can lay down and get a 5 minute rejuvenating snooze while you breathe in the energizing citrus scent.
 (I chose the latter).


Here I am right after I removed my mask.
See how there is still some mask "goodie" left on your skin?
Once you remove it, you gently rub in the excess from the sheet into your skin. This is a little added bonus because you don't have to wash it off! You literally just rub in the mask goodness and let it sink in all day (or night). 

So here's the good part...

I immediately noticed a more even - bright skin tone, a dramatic lightening of red spots, a more smooth complexion, and my skin felt very moisturized. I even noticed some plumping of some fine lines around my eye area. 

SCORE!!!!
 All of that in just 5 minutes! 
I've used some masks for 20 minutes and haven't seen results this fast or this great!

This mask is perfect to use in the morning because of the scent, and short time frame. Plus, the illuminating benefits make the perfect refreshed canvas for your makeup! 

 My makeup applied SO evenly after using this and my skin was perfectly hydrated, but not greasy or extra oily. I actually didn't put a drop of extra moisturizer on because I didn't need it!
That's a SUPER win in my book!!

As a self-proclaimed, "Glow and Go" radiance booster, this mask had a lot to live up to. I am so happy to say that it blew me AWAY with it's fast acting results.
This is the ideal mask for a busy lady (or guy) on the go!

I don't know about you...but I don't have 20 minutes to spare in the morning to apply a face mask. My minutes are precious and I love the fact that this mask needs only 5 of them to do it's job --- and do it WELL!


This mask can be used once a week for it's illuminating benefits, or as needed for an extra boost of radiance!

Perfect for all skin tones --- Including sensitive skin!

It's so gentle, yet effective but refreshing and super luxurious!

I can't wait to tell you the best part!!!
(Wait...you're telling me that all that good stuff above wasn't the BEST!??)

Nope.

Get this.....

These sheet masks are only....

$6.25!!!!!!!!!

HOLY STEAL!!!!!
 The Sephora sheet masks I have always raved about are $6 and they don't give you these results in 5 minutes!
Heck...they don't even come close to these results at all!
Another good thing about these masks is that I think you can actually get away with getting 2 uses out of one sheet because they are so saturated. The sheet material is very durable, but as I said 100 times....SO SOFT! SO really they will only cost a little over $3 per application if you look at it that way! 
WIN!!!!



I think it's so important to make a little time for yourself each week. Even if it's only 5 minutes, why not treat yourself and your skin to the ultimate luxurious experience at home!
These masks are seriously a vacation for your FACE! 
You will look like you just came back from a week in Bali --- but really--- you only spent 5 minutes in your bathroom!

 Major WIN!

If you want more than one...and I know you will....

they sell these guys in a pack of 8 for $50!

So stock up NOW!!!
