REVIEW: PATCHOLOGY FlashMasques The Five Minute Sheet Mask Collection


In the past I was never crazy about facial masks, or any kind of body masks.  No special reason, I just never had any real luck in seeing any visible improvements to my skin after applying them.  So, I rarely bothered with them since I sort of felt they were a waste of time and effort.  That is until now!!  I recently discovered a most innovative brand called  Patchology.  Patchology is such a cool name for a company that has created a line of patches that tackle your skin's problem areas with luxurious and effective patch solutions. Think patches for cellulite, acne, dark spots and wrinkles. Think patches for the forehead, lips, hands and even legs.  Intriguing huh, and let me tell you these patches are amazing!  You see immediate results from the moment you remove them!  Before I get into my review, let me briefly introduce Patchology to you.

MY REVIEW




I received the 3 box set of Patchology FlashMasques Collection from Patchology.  Exfoliate, Hydrate and Luminate.  Each box contains 8 individual facial sheets that are so drenched in ingredients it feels like a wet sheet on your face.  An instant soothing feeling.  Here are the three different facial sheet options:




Illuminate FlashMasque™ Facial Sheets

Price:  $50



DESCRIPTION:

Improve Lackluster, Dull and Uneven Skin Tone... in a Flash!


Illuminate FlashMasque™ Facial Sheets help reveal fresh-faced radiance by evening skin tone and giving new life to a lackluster-looking complexion. Our highly advanced, luxurious masque material accelerates delivery of essential ingredients Licorice and Grapefruit Seed Extracts.

This super-charged brightening treatment delivers results in just 5 minutes; traditional sheet masques can take up to 20 minutes. Formulated with our proprietary HydraSurge5™ Moisture System for added luminosity. Dull, lackluster skin vanishes and you’re left with balanced tone and brighter, glowier, more youthful-looking skin.

Research Results - Single 5 minute use study with 100 participants:

  • 98% felt their skin was not optimally illuminated before using the mask
  • 96% said it boosted their skin’s vibrancy
  • 95% said their skin looked balanced, radiant and revitalized


Ideal for:  Dull, lackluster skin and uneven tone.

Included: 8 Facial Sheets 


MY THOUGHTS:



A brightening booster for sure!  Note, you receive 8 FlashMasques in a box, I only show 4 in my picture because that is all I have left!  This is my favorite of the 3 FlashMasques!  I cannot express enough how these facial sheets instantly improve the appearance and condition of my skin.  I am one that believes in getting the very most out of my products, so I have been leaving these masks on for 20 minutes.  I cannot say how much improvement will be visible after 5 minutes, because I wore them for the full 20 minutes.  But, I suspect even at 5 minutes the powerful ingredients can work their magic.

From the moment you pull the facial sheets out of their individually packaged packets, you can feel how soaked they are.  There is probably double the amount of ingredients in each one, that is how saturated they are. I carefully open each one up and lay it over my entire face.  I put some extra seconds in patting down the sheet to ensure that every nook and crevice of my face was covered, as best I could.

The facial sheets feel dreamy on your face.  You feel their wetness and you feel that they are there on your skin, and they are super comfortable.  You do not feel any harshness nor stinging, no adverse reactions whatsoever.  

After the 20 minutes you lift the sheets off of your skin and you experience that ah-ha, "wow" moment as you witness how noticeably improved the condition of your skin is.  It is at that moment that you feel total bliss!

At the end of each application I noticed my skin was more luminous, radiant, glowing, more even toned, more vibrant, you get the idea.  I love LOVE these FlashMasques!

I feel the exact same way about these Hydrating FlashMasques as I do about the Illuminate FlashMasques.  You apply the hydrating facial sheets in the same manner as you do the others.  Again, I left the hydrating facial sheets on for 20 minutes, the maximum amount of time.  

After I removed the facial masks, I again experienced that same thrilling feeling of being able to immediately see a measurable different in the appearance of my facial skin.  It felt smoother and softer to the touch, it looked healthier and more nourished, a more dewy appearance, a more youthful appearance which had me smiling from cheek to cheek!

MY THOUGHTS:





Super-charged exfoliation, in a gentle, non-irritating method!  That is what comes to mind when I describe these Exfoliating FlashMasques.  I used these Exfoliating FlashMasques exactly as I used the other two types, and left them on for the full 20 minutes.

When I removed the facial sheets it was as if I had a fresh canvas,  my face was me, only a more improve version of me!  I looked more alive, my skin was renewed, not as dull, it definitely looked healthier and more rejuvenated.  I could tell that all those icky dead skin cells had gone away.  

If you want to achieve fast, instant results in 20 minutes, I highly recommend using any one of these 3 truly sensational FlashMasques.  You know your skin, you know what it feels like to wear it, so you can pick and choose the FlashMasque that you think your skin will benefit more from at that given moment.  I have been using each of these types of FlashMasques a few times a week and honestly, I cannot imagine my life without them now.  They are pampering but even more so, treatment for my skin that I did not realize it needed until I began using them.
