…because beauty is not just skin deep.
They say ‘Love the skin you’re in’….
… I say ‘Love‘ your skin first and you’re bound to fall in love with it…make sense???
Today I’d like to share with you my second experience with a brand of sheet masks called Purederm…but before I get into the details of that, here’s a little about the brand itself.
Purederm Skin Solutions claim – “Now you can get Korean professional-level treatments from the comfort of your home. Purederm products are some the highest quality imported skincare treatments. And these will cost you quite a bit less than your usual beauty products.
For pure and perfect skin, choose Purederm. You can rely on Purederm’s innovative range of patches and masks to clarify and perfect your appearance. Purederm has a range of Anti-Wrinkle, Age Defying and Spot Reducing products for the skin.”
Purederm has quite a few different varieties of facial sheet masks and the ones I choose are from their Skin Recovery range. Here’s a look at the variety I bought:

Today I’ll talk about the Age Defying Collagen Mask from Purederm.
This came in a pack of 4 for Rs. 580/- …not bad when you read what the brand claims it will do!

Does it deliver? My thoughts?
I’ll explain right from the beginning. It was a pain to rip the packet open and for a moment I thought I was accidentally going to rip the mask in my attempts to open the ‘bottle’ shaped packaging. (*thumbs down*)
Once I did manage to get to the mask I noticed right away that there wasn’t a lot of essence in the packet, be that in the actual sheet mask or the essence leftover in the packaging.
With my last sheet mask (Mond’sub Facial Sheet Mask), the mask was drenched in essence & I still had at least a tablespoon worth (if not more) of leftover essence in the packaging. Sadly, that was not the case with Purederm! 😦
The good part though with the Purederm Age Defying Collagen Mask was the fit.
As you can see the mask has slits so that the sheet mask can really sit on your skin & let it absorb all the goodness from the essence.
The texture is somewhat like Tissue papery …thick and not easy to tear.
The eyeholes were nice and wide, plus they have flaps so if you’d like to cover your eyelids while laying down, you can! (*thumbs up*)
Once on the skin, the mask sits well, but then again, within 5-8 minutes I felt that it started to dry out, which obviously means it is not rich in essence. (*another thumbs down*)
If we talk about the ‘feel’ of the essence itself, it is clear and has a very very faint fragrance (not bothersome whatsoever). My skin looked moisturised, hydrated and glowy, plus it din’t feel sticky or tacky at all once I removed the mask. (*BIG thumbs up*)
I would have LOVED this mask if there was more product in the sheet, but oh well, not too bad after all. I will be using the ones left from this pack and also hope that the other 2 from this range will perhaps do better than this one….shall keep you posted… watch this space for more details!
