My experience

Upon opening, I immediately smelled a fresh, clean, mask sheet with a very light scent of I-don’t-know-what. It smells… fresh and clean. Haha! It’s very saturated with serum, so the sheet felt”wet” which is a good thing. Inside the pack, there were only tiny droplets of serum left but it wasn’t a problem. The tiny droplets were enough to cover my forearms, though; so that’s good!

The mask itself fits well on my small face. The slits around the sheet are good for proper fitting, so the whole thing didn’t move, slide, or fall off from my face.

It has a very moisturizing effect and it did lessen the redness of the huge pimple on my nose. This is great since the Bija mask claims to smoothen skin and strengthen its natural defenses. I’m not sure if it did what it claims, but what happened was good enough for me.

Tbh I think mask sheets generally do the same thing, no matter what they claim to be. Maybe there are a few ones which ACTUALLY do what they claim. As long as the mask hydrates, I’m happy!)

After 20 minutes of hydrating goodness, the mask still had essence when I squeezed it. It was around a spoonful which was enough for my neck, arms, elbows, and hands. I’m very happy with this!

Final verdict, tl;dr

I liked it!

Maybe don’t expect this mask to magically smoothen your skin, but it does hydrate well and has enough essence for your neck and arms!

Note
Keep in mind that skincare &  hygiene are very personal. What may work for me may not work for you, and vice versa – even if we have the same skin/hair type!
