The Product: Leaders AC Dressing Skin Clinic Mask
What It Is
A reporter’s job entails long hours, so when I come home late in the evening, I try to keep my skincare routine as short as possible but at the same time efficient. I’ve never really had an extensive regimen so less is more for me when it comes to skincare. At night, I remove my makeup with micellar water then I wash my face with facial soap, then I apply toner and moisturizer. In the morning, I just wash my face with facial soap and apply moisturizer afterwards.
I have combination skin and my main skin concerns include dryness and occasional breakouts. I’ve tried a couple of face masks before. Whenever I have the time to put on a sheet mask, I usually look for one that really hydrates, brightens, and livens up tired-looking skin. For this one, the packaging says that it's good for soothing sensitive skin and reducing irritation. My skin wasn’t experiencing any of those concerns at the time, but I was interested to see if it will give soothing and calming effects.
How I Used It
I like the overall look of its packaging and I love how I can just take it anywhere with me when I travel. It has a noticeable floral scent while the texture and finish are like that of a typical face mask with a watery gel consistency. I find the mask a bit too drenched in serum, albeit a tad too sticky for my liking.
I tried using the mask once a week at night and decided to put it on right after washing my face instead of applying my usual toner and moisturizer as to not apply too much products on my skin. Here is the routine that I followed: micellar water, cold cream, facial wash, and then the AC-Dressing face mask.
Masks in general are really easy and straightforward to use. I like how the AC-Dressing mask instantly refreshed and hydrated my skin. When I woke up the next day, my face was visibly more plump and I noticed that my pores tightened. I wasn’t experiencing any redness or irritation prior to using the mask but it did brighten my skin.
I would definitely incorporate the AC-Dressing mask into my skincare routine at least once a week. It provides hydration for when my skin feels dry and tired. I’d recommend it for girls who are always out and about and are looking for ways to unwind, relax, and pamper themselves at the end of a long day. It’s also good for those battling against redness and irritation because of the mask's calming properties.
