Balancing mask with fruit extracts Fruit Balancing Mask, EGIA
Tested by BeautyHack Senior Editor Anastasia Speranskaya
“Herbal ingredients in products from the Italian brand EGIA are not rare guests, but full-fledged residents. It is not surprising that many of the brand’s new products are labeled “for sensitive skin”, as the composition contains no parabens, no harsh surfactants, or synthetic fragrances. My skin loves to be capricious – it turns red in the sun, peels off from the wind, and, in addition to everything, I have a tendency to rosacea.
The balancing mask was created as if especially for me – if you also have problems with excessive sensitivity or rashes and oily sheen often appear, take note. The composition includes a whole set of useful plant extracts. Linden, papaya, apple, black currant and lemon relieve redness and irritation, while seaweed extracts normalize the sebaceous glands.
The mask looks like a translucent pink gel with the signature subtle scent of EGIA products – it reminds me of baby soap. I apply it to cleansed skin of the face, neck and décolleté (we don’t forget about them) and hold it for 20 minutes – and then wash it off with warm water. The tone evens out instantly and the skin becomes tighter to the touch – a case when the restoration of the hydrolipidic mantle can really be seen. “

Sheet mask Watermelon After-Sun Mask, Sephora
Tested by BeautyHack editor Julia Kozoliy
“It turns out that watermelon is not only a necessary Instagram props in August, but also a popular ingredient in many summer products, from serums to lip balms. Sephora in this regard sold out in earnest and released a whole collection of cares: a clarifying serum, a moisturizing gel, wet wipes and masks – all in positive juicy packages!
The main task of the mask with watermelon extract (it is located approximately in the middle of the list of ingredients) is to moisturize, soothe and refresh the skin after the sun. I tested after sun treatment to remove redness and even out complexion. First impressions: a rich aroma of either watermelon or freshly cut grass and a slight chill when applied.
The package contains two fabric masks – for the face and for the neck (any cosmetologist will say that this part should not be forgotten when doing absolutely any care). Doing business will not work – everything will slide into the chest area. But it also plays into the hands! I leave the masks for 15 minutes, then I drive the remnants into the skin with massage movements – there is no stickiness, just like the dryness that overtakes absolutely everyone after sea salt and UV rays. “
Price: about 330 rubles.
Sheet mask Pomegranate Nutri-Moisturizing Mask, Frudia
Tested by BeautyHack SMM Manager Alexandra Grishina
“Did you know that pomegranate extract is rich in polyphenol, a powerful antioxidant? So this mask consists of 46% pomegranate and actively nourishes and regenerates the skin in just 20 minutes.
The definitely mouth-watering yogurt jar packaging prepares you for something flavorful inside. Indeed, the whole procedure from opening the package to applying the remnants of the mask to the neck and décolleté area looks like a pleasure.
The mask fabric is created using an innovative technology from plant fibers and provides a snug fit to the skin, and also effectively delivers active ingredients to it.
I decided to do everything – I previously used patches under the eyes, waited 10 minutes when they would lie tightly and fix on the skin (hydrogel friends, alas, strive to slip away), and applied a mask on top. With such a beautiful, fragrant and, most importantly, rested look, it was even a pity to go to bed. Take note – the perfect cocktail for a fresh, fresh look in the morning. It is highly recommended for those who are worried about their sensitive skin and often encounter irritations after 10 seconds of using tissue express products. “

“One of my favorite childhood activities in the country has always been the preparation of a face mask from vegetables and fruits – these were invariable cucumber slices in front of our eyes and finely chopped strawberries, which, as a result, were always eaten before the magic beauty effect was noticeable. I don’t know why I needed this mask as a child, after all, the task of strawberries is to lighten age spots and tighten aging skin, but the process was pleasant.
Memories overwhelmed me when I first used the Secret Nature fabric mask – the aroma of strawberries filled the room, however, it was no longer possible to eat it (you can read about how strawberries cheer up

Capsule sheet mask Power Capsule Mask Recovery, The Oozoo
Tested by BeautyHack editor Daria Sizova
“The Oozoo Cloth Masks are like life in Forest Gump, a box of chocolates and you never know which one you get. I don’t like cloth masks, but The Oozoo is interesting and fun to use, and their formulations are excellent! The Power Capsule Mask has a capsule with passionfruit, coconut and grape seed oils, olive oil, green tea on the outside, which must be crushed right before use. Do not get it, but just press it – the active substances will saturate the tissue base and all the useful properties will not be lost.
The main task of the tool is restoration and toning. Works great as an emergency aid when skin conditions are poor. I apply the mask on my face, lie down for 20 minutes and distribute the remainder from the capsule all over my face. After application, the skin begins to shine (I do not add an illuminizer to the foundation on such days). For thin and sensitive skin, this mask is what the doctor ordered. It fits very tightly to the face, and the active components seem to be absorbed into the deep layers of the epidermis. Bonus – soothing properties: can be used even for problem skin with inflammation and flaking. The brand also has a product with rose extract with a super-moisturizing effect – you will find it

Secret Nature Mask – Scented Blueberry Bomb. It contains blueberry extract, which improves skin elasticity, prevents aging and any damage caused by an aggressive environment. When opening the package, be careful – there is a lot of impregnating liquid. This essence contains many useful elements besides blueberries: hyaluronic acid for mega-hydration, green tea against edema, ginger to improve metabolic processes in the skin.

Enzyme peeling mask with papaya, Mezolux
Tested by editorial assistant BeautyHack Arina Zarudko
“For me, this tool has become the discovery of the century, no less. Peeling is an indispensable procedure for cleansing the skin, and when it is combined with the delicate texture of the mask, the ritual of evening care becomes much more pleasant. Enzymatic peeling mask Mezolux Librederm not only gently removes dead cells from the skin surface, but also improves skin tone, accelerates the regeneration process and helps to tighten pores.
Papaya extract gently softens and exfoliates the skin, while zinc citrate helps relieve irritation and inflammation. It also contains shea butter, coconut and sweet almond butter, which are responsible for moisturizing the skin. The mask cleanses, heals, and softens – several stages of care in one jar at once! The indications state that the mask is intended for skin with visible age-related changes, but I can say with confidence that it is perfect for young skin as well, since the main function of the product is, nevertheless, cleansing. “

Night face mask Avocado, Skinfood
Tested by BeautyHack editorial assistant Karina Ilyasova
“The mask is designed for dry to very dry skin, so the owners of normal, combination and oily skin – pass by. In the composition of fresh milk and avocado – an unusual combination, but it gives an amazing smell. I do not like night masks, because they are always very oily, and this only makes my skin worse. This mask is just that, so it found a non-standard use for it. I apply it in a thin layer for 10-15 minutes, and then wash it off with regular cleansers.
The skin after the mask looks better – it becomes soft and smooth, there is no peeling, but the product does not have a prolonged effect, therefore it is more suitable as a sos-remedy (for owners of very dry skin, this will only be beneficial). If you just have dry skin without any special claims, then feel free to indulge yourself with this remedy. “

Rejuvenating mask with fruit acids, DIZAO
Tested by editorial assistant BeautyHack Anya Khobotova
“It’s better to start taking care of your skin earlier – yet another test of the anti-age mask was successful. Moreover, you need to use it in two stages, from which the skin is delighted, but first things first.
The product from the world-renowned cosmetic brand DIZAO consists of two parts – a sheet mask and a hyaluronic cream. The mask will seem huge to you, but it needs to be placed on the face and neck (there is a sample on the package). After 15 minutes of working with fruit acids, which help to renew, even out and moisturize the skin, it is worth removing the mask and washing your face. Here comes the second stage – applying the cream. The hyaluronic acid in the composition further moisturizes and improves skin elasticity. The effect of the mask is gorgeous – bruises and small wrinkles near the eyes have miraculously disappeared, and the skin has become like that of a baby. The manufacturer recommends using the mask in a course of 14 days, 1-2 a week to consolidate the effect. “
