Recently I used the wrong product, actually it ’s not that I used the wrong product,maybe my liquid foundation has been left for a long time and I forgot to use it, and I can’t find its expiry date on the packaging. At that time, I was thinking that I should use it instead of wasting it. When I came home at night to remove my makeup, I found that my skin has rashes and kind of sensitive. If you watched my last two videos about ingredients in cosmetics, you should find that my cheeks have rashes. And because I am not sensitive skin type, so the products I use are not specifically said to choose particularly gentle, suitable for sensitive skin. So I just don’t apply too much product for the time being to burden my skin. But the speed of recovery is actually quite slow.
Then a friend of mine introduced me to a mask. It is said to have a soothing and calming effect on the skin, especially if you have done aesthetic surgery, after injection. It is also suitable for sensitive skin. This is Mitime’s Cactus Trehalose Mask. And even its mask cloth is specially made for sensitive skin. Although its price is really quite high, about RM138 per box, there are 5 pieces in a box. But I think there must be a reason. So I bought it anyway. I used it immediately after receiving the package the next day. It is quite comfortable when applied. After the application, my reddish skin did improve. So I think although the price is not cheap, it is worth sharing.
Before I bought it, I went online to read its related information.I think its ingredients are really quite safe, and without adding too many chemicals that are bad for the skin like alcohol, fragrance, SLS,paraben, these ingredients that easily cause skin irritation. Except that it has a preservative ingredient, phenoxyethanol. There is only one ingredient which is more likely to be harmful to the skin. But don’t worry too much because its ingredients are very little,
Its concentration in products is usually less than 1%, so it will not cause too much problem to our skin. And phenoxyethanol is considered safer if compared with other preservatives. I can say that, the manufacturers are really very careful in making this product, and have really carefully considered these issues. Then the most important ingredient in it is cactus extract. Cactus extract has moisturizing, antioxidant, soothing, anti-allergic, and nourishing skin effect.
Other ingredients that can help soothe and calm the skin are glycyrrhizic acid, urea and Vitamin B. Then the mint extract in it has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect, so if you have acne, this mask can help your acne recover faster. And because of the mint extract, when we put on the mask, it will give us a sense of cold comfort. So I really think this mask is really like a ‘treatment mask’. You can use it when your skin is having an outbreak. In addition to these ingredients that help soothe sensitive skin, It also contains hydrolyzed collagen and hyaluronic acid. Hydrolyzed collagen is different from ordinary collagen in that it has a relatively small molecule, so it is easier to absorb. Collagen, needless to say,everyone knows what its efficacy is. It mainly moisturizes, provides a moisturizing feeling for our skin, prevents wrinkles, and makes our skin firmer. You compare the skin of a little baby with an elderly person, Baby’s skin is so smooth,firm and elastic because they have a lot of collagen in their bodies. However, with age, collagen will be lost, so our skin will start to sag and wrinkle. Therefore, collagen is one of the important elements of anti-aging.
Then hyaluronic acid is a strong moisturizer, its moisturizing effect is recognized as very good, so it can hydrate our dry skin. Then another feature of this mask is that its mask cloth is made of Trehalose, this is why the name of this mask is called Cactus Trehalose Mask. Trehalose is a natural sugar. It has strong moisturizing and water-locking capabilities. And it has a good affinity with the protein membrane of our cells. This feature makes it useful as a skin penetration agent,helping other ingredients to be more easily absorbed by our skin. Also, trehalose is very stable, it is not easy to chemically react with other ingredients, So it is very suitable to use it as the composition of the mask cloth.
Its texture is really softer than other mask, And there is a mint smell when it is opened. I am a person who can accept mint flavor, so for me it is Ok. It feels very comfortable to apply. It’s cool because of mint. I didn’t put this mask in the refrigerator, but it is cool in itself!
And it’s pretty attached to our skin. In fact, I recommend that you apply the mask 1-2 times a week. You don’t need to apply it every day. Because it will be very burdensome to your skin, your skin does not need to absorb so much nutrients every day.
After I used this mask. I think my skin really feels treated. I feel very fresh, I think this mask is really effective for sensitive skin, If there is something wrong with your skin, you can use this to rescue in time. Apply it once or twice to see its effect, because it is very effective for soothing and calming the skin. But for acne, I don’t see much effect, After all, if you only apply the mask once or twice a week, it will be difficult to treat acne. And just before I applied the mask,
My lips are red and swollen, and have a little tingling. Because my lips are very sensitive. Then I found out that after I applied the mask, it didn’t seem to be so red, and now it feels less tingling. Because its mask contains anti-inflammatory and calming ingredients, I just want to give it a try. I did not expect the effect to be so good.
The conclusion is that if you like a safe, non-toxic, comfortable mask, you can choose this, Cactus Trehalose Mask by Mitime. So this is what I shared today.
