Review: Bio-essence Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask

The Bio-essence Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask came just in time for me to review as I was just looking for an effective moisturizer.

The Bio-essence Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask is enriched with 2 types of hyaluronic acid (super ingredient for hydrating effect!) and cranberry extract & bio energy fluid which provides for long-lasting hydration and protects skin from environmental factors. 

What's the Hydra tri-action?
1) Hydrate 3x
- Power Nano Hyaluronic Acid: superior moisture retention. keep skin firm, plumped, moisturized.
- Hyaluronic Acid: forms a water-locked network to lock in moisture
- Cranberry Extract: moisturizer that aids in moisture retention and improves skin elasticity and suppleness. 
2) Nourish 
- Cranberry Extract provides excellent conditioning of the skin for a healthy glow. Bio Energy Fluid further nourishes and refines skin texture. 
3) Protect 
- Cranberry Extract is rich in anti-oxidants which protects skin against harmful free radicals, environmental and UV damage.

Combat 4 common skin problems with the regular usage of the mask! Brighten dull and tired skin, refine enlarged pores, moisturize dry and rough skin and lastly, regulate the skin's oil and moisture level.

The sleeping mask has a dual use too. Besides using it as a sleeping mask, you can use it as a daily moisturizer too. Simply apply a thin layer over your skin if you want to use it as a moisturizer. Apply a thicker layer if you're intending to use it as a sleeping mask for a more intensive treatment overnight.

I appreciate that the sleeping beauty mask comes in a little tub as I will be able to utilize every bit of the mask fully. However, this design makes it unhygienic for users to scoop repeatedly with their bare fingers. I make sure I wash my hands with soap before scooping out an estimated amount once that is sufficient to use on my entire face.

The sleeping mask is pale white in colour.

After some gentle rubbing, water droplets (bio aqua crystals) will start to form. They will then start to absorb quickly into the skin and moisture is locked.

"The Bio Aqua Crystal Technology forms a protective shield over the hydrating ingredients. This will prevent moisture loss before application. Upon application, this shield breaks away and these droplets are formed. They are made up of superior hydrating ingredients of small molecular sizes which allow moisture and nutrients to be easily delivered to the deepest layers of skin, while the protective emollient film remains on the skin to lock in moisture for non-stop hydration."

The texture is very soft and easily spreads onto skin. The smooth texture of the mask makes it easy to apply. It is lightweight, non-greasy, and feels soothing to the skin. It also has a really good hydrating effect thanks to the hydra-tri action feature. When I wake up in the morning to wash my face, my skin still feels soft and supple. Although I prefer my products with no scent, I actually like the mild and refreshing floral scent that this mask has. Even though my skin doesn't look dull the next day after application, I feel that this mask does not have a significant effect of brightening my skin.

If you have the habit of sleeping in an air-conditioned room, this sleeping mask will be especially useful in keeping your skin hydrated in a dry room throughout the night, while repairing and nourishing your skin. Plus, don't you love the aquatic colour of the packaging? I do!
