Get a Rosy Complexion with Albion Extract RS Mask

September 28, 2014

This October, Albion is releasing a limited edition Extract RS Mask, which promises to bring a healthy rosy glow to the complexion.

Albion Extract RS Mask

The Albion Extract RS Mask is a gel sheet mask that comes in 2 pieces to fit the top and bottom of the face separately. The packaging is remarkable as each sheet comes in its own foil packet, and the mask itself is laid out flat in the packet instead of folded up as most other masks are. So when you remove it, it is nicely opened up and ready to be placed on the face directly. No slippery puzzle as you attempt to unravel the mask before ripping it to pieces (true story!).

The key ingredient is rose water extract which has the ability to activate the function of female hormones, to improve the skin’s natural physiology. It also has anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties. In addition, the mask contains osmanthus flower extract which is whitening and has anti-glycation functions; collagen to boost skin’s elasticity; mint leaf extract to stimulate cell’s metabolism; and rose placenta extract for anti-oxidant properties.

We have all tried our fair share of sheet masks, and oftentimes it is difficult to differentiate one from another. And so I was really surprised when I tried this for the first time. The mask is not all that “wet” when you first place it on the face, and it adheres well to the skin and stays on. In just 5 minutes, most of the essence would have been absorbed into the skin, and the mask becomes fairly “dry”. I kept it on for 10 minutes just because (in Singaporean slang we call it “kiasu” i.e. afraid to lose), and found the mask completely dry. But the results are certainly noticeable! My skin was visibly brighter, more hydrated, and the entire face looked more lifted.

I love this mask so much, I am going to buy more to stock up once it hits counters! It retails for SGD92 for a box of 3. Certainly on the pricy end of the market, but the last mask that I enjoyed this much was the Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydration Lifting Mask (reviewed here), and that retails for USD95 (approx. SGD123) for a box of 4, so it is comparably priced.

    I had never seen a transparent sheet mask! It looks like jelly 😛
    Still, the box looks really pretty, and it’s great news that you loved them.
    I keep the masks on for longer than the recommended too, lol

      Hi Sil, yes these biocellulose “gel” masks are very popular now! They adhere much better to the skin than traditional sheet masks, and absorb better. Hehehe… we all want to maximize the absorption of the product right? 😉

    Sounds like a great mask! I’ve tried the Tatcha one, love it after a long hot day. My friend introduced me to a Korean brand called Leader’s that does lots of masks, and their gel masks are my go-to for affordable ones, otherwise Armani’s one would be my most easily accessible one, but too pricy for regular use. Will keep an eye out for these! Thanks for the heads up 🙂

      Oh yes i’ve tried Leader’s Insolution masks too! They’re not exactly all that cheap for drugstore … about SGD9.90 each if i’m not mistaken… although that’s 1/3 of the price of this Albion! I’m just not sure if it is as good. But i didn’t know Armani has a good mask too!! Gosh, i’ve got to try it! I love their makeup, but have never had a chance to try their skincare much.

    Oh this reminds me of Diorsnow mask! One thing I don’t like is that this material rips if you’re not careful 🙁

      Oh i’ve never tried the Diorsnow mask! Yes these cellulose / gel masks tend to be more fragile… but this one is packaged in a way that is really quite well protected!
