Timeless Truth – Face Masks
This post may contain affiliate links.
I was actually sent these sheet face masks ages ago but it’s taken me until now to get round to reviewing them. I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long, I love face masks and use one every week, but I think I was maybe put off by the fact that these are sheet masks and I thought they might be a bit fiddly to use.
The three facial sheet masks that I have here are all from Timeless Truth: Charcoal Detox Brightening Mask, Organic Silk Fibre Elixir Mask and Green Tea Phenol Soothing Mask.
If you’re new to sheet masks the idea is this – it’s a piece of fabric that has been soaked in the face mask product (this could be a liquid, gel or cream) and you simple peel off the backing sheet and place it over your face. There are holes for the eyes, nose and mouth so you can still see and breathe.
They’re probably a little bit quicker to apply than a regular cream face mask but they don’t look any more flattering on unfortunately!
The only one of the three Timeless Truth facial sheet masks that I have tried so far is the Green Tea Phenol Soothing Mask, which is part of the Fusion Range. It contains extracts of natural green tea, aloe vera and chamomile and helps reduce oil secretion, minimises pores and helps prevent acne.
I have to admit that I found it rather fiddly to apply the sheet mask to my face! Once I opened the packet it was rather slimy – the sheet mask is covered in a clear gel – and it was slipping and dripping everywhere. I eventually got the mask in place and it was fine apart from the odd drip – I’d recommend you keep a piece of tissue or cotton wool handy to catch any drips! It felt cool, refreshing and tingly on my face and I left it in place for the recommended 15-20 minutes.
Once I had removed the mask (they’re not reusable and should just be thrown in the bin) my skin felt hydrated and plump and I finished off by applying Trilogy Organic Rosehip Oil to my skin and massaging it in. I’m not too sure whether it reduced the oil secretion of my skin as I applied the oil afterwards, but my face did still feel nice and hydrated the next day.
The next of the three masks that I am going to try is the Charcoal Detox Brightening Mask as I love the effects of charcoal masks on my skin. This one is also part of the Fusion Range and has a deep cleansing effect.
I feel a bit unsure about the third mask – the Organic Silk Fibre Elixir Mask – I think I’m a bit put off by the picture of the weird egg cocoon thing on the front! This one is part of the Bio-Cellulose Range and aims to help stimulate cell production and improve the quality of the skin’s collagen. It’s much more expensive than the other two, so I’m expecting great things from it!
The jury’s still out on facial sheet masks for me I think – I found the Green Tea Phenol Soothing Mask rather fiddly and messy to apply but I did like the results it gave. It might be easiest to apply these sheet masks when you’re with a friend and help each other out – think a grown-up pyjama party! You’d certainly get a good laugh seeing each other with the masks on your faces!
UPDATE 23rd July 2017 – Timeless Truth Sheet Masks don’t seem to be readily available in the UK any more, however if you like sheet masks then why not check out my review of Temple Spa The Contourist, the sheet mask that produces big results for big occasions!
