Beauty Review: Kila Doll Masks
What is the most important step in your beauty regimen?
We all know that establishing a good skin care regimen is essential for achieving good and radiant skin.
And I used to think that cleansing is the most important step in our beauty regimen as it clears away all the dirt collected and paves the way for the toner and moisturizer.
It doesn’t help that my skin is mostly oily and so, I always feel a strong urge to wash my face.
Well, I guess I was right until recent years when I hit my 20s. I noticed that my skin becomes dry and flaky really quickly in cold environments – air conditioned rooms and during winter.
As you age, your skin becomes drier as it can no longer retain the moisture needed to make it smooth and silky. Collagen production slows down, the process of cell regeneration also slows down and elastin becomes less springy (the substance that enables skin to snap back into place).
So cleansing becomes less important because too much washing can actually strip your skin of its natural oils and create dry and irritated skin.
Of course, we should not remove cleansing entirely from our regimen as we’ll always have to get rid of the daily grime. However, I strongly recommend adding an additional step to perfect our beauty routine – use face masks.
In ancient times, Egyptian and Greek women kept their skin fresh and young by using face masks. And you’ve heard how beautiful they were, so this probably works to a certain extent.
I used my first face mask ten years ago and that changed the beauty aspect of my life irrevocably. I think my first mask was a peel-off mask from Christian Dior and it was exhilarating to see the mask remove the dead skin and dirt off the surface of my face.
Use a facial mask at least once a week. It moisturizes your skin and eases skin disorders. It also acts as an effective stress reliever. It is not necessary to use one every day though.
There are several types of facial masks out there, each type with a different function: mud masks or clay-based masks absorb oil and balance out the skin, hydrating masks moisturize dry skin and perfecting masks replenish tired and dull skin.
These days, facial mask sheets are all the rage and they are starting to grow on me too. I love how they are so easy to apply and remove without causing a mess.
And lucky me!
Beaute Inn Pte Ltd decided to send me some of the best sellers of their Kila Doll Facial Mask range namely the Diamond Platinum Mask, Hyaluronic Acid Mask, Rose Moisturizing Mask and the Tranexamic Acid Mask.
Kila means pretty and shiny in Japanese.
I’m excited about the masks! Hurray to healthier and hopefully more radiant skin!
Kila Doll Masks are specially designed for Asian skin. It is made using 100% silk wood pulp fiber imported from Japan with its ingredients formulated and manufactured in Taiwan.
Silk wood pulp creates super-thin and soft sheets, which fit perfectly to the face. The special cut of the mask allows a perfect fit on any Asian face, and the absence of non-woven wool fibers reduces skin allergies.
The masks’ highly breathable function helps the essential liquid penetrate into the skin for better absorption.
The Best Sellers
The Diamond Platinum Mask contains Platinum Nanoparticles which plays an important role in anti-aging, antioxidation and in moisturizing the skin.
The Kila Doll Diamond Platinum Mask is specially designed to slow down the signs of aging skin. It also helps to repair skin cells and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, giving you smoother and younger skin.
Hyaluronic Acid is effective at moisturizing surface skin cells, which prevents water loss and protects the skin from dirt and other pollutants. The Kila Doll Hyaluronic Acid Mask helps retain the skin’s moisture, giving the skin a smoother and youthful appearance. It provides a long-lasting moisturizing effect on the skin and helps improves skin’s elasticity.
One of the main ingredients in the Kila Doll Rose Mask is Rose Water. Rose Water is well- known for its benefits on skin. Rose water stimulates the circulation in the tiny blood vessels beneath the skin, reducing the appearance of thread veins and broken capillaries.
The Kila Doll Rose Mask helps to brighten and moisturize your face, keeping your skin soft and supple.
One of the main ingredients, Tranexamic Acid, helps to reduce the pigmentation of skin. It not only acts as an anti-inflammatory but also minimizes dark spot areas due to sun exposure. The Kila Doll Tranexamic Acid Mask essence penetrates into the skin to dilute spots and even out skin tone. This mask also helps to reduce fine lines and dark spots, giving you a fresher and brighter skin tone!
Here’s what I think about the masks…
When I removed the Kila Doll mask sheet from the packaging, the essence was already dripping down my fingers. I like that the mask is generously soaked in the serum but was also afraid that the essence may drip down my face and neck when I use it later. Urgh! I don’t like that.
I also don’t like ill- fitting mask sheets that cover my eyes, nostrils or lips. Not only are they uncomfortable, they also produce little or no results.
Alright, those are some of my beauty pet peeves.
So when I applied the mask on my face and…
It fits my face snugly and the serum did not drip down my face. Double yay!
The thin sheets felt rather comfortable on my face and they did not fall off even after they were partially dried up later.
The sheets all have a light fragrance on them except the Kila Doll Rose Mask which of course has a stronger sweet smell.
The masks were soothing and refreshing whilst on. I actually fell asleep on my couch while waiting for the 20 minutes to be up!
However, after I remove the mask, my skin still felt tight and dry unlike other hydrating masks which leaves my skin smoother and plumper.
So I guess its moisturizing properties only apply while the mask is on.
Here’s another downer.
After using the Hyaluronic Acid mask, my face suffered from a minor breakout. I guess it was too rich for my oily face. I was pretty annoyed by that.
Overall, I thought the masks were effective stress relievers but not so great as moisturizers. However, I do appreciate its face-fitting element.
