[Review] New 2017 Aritaum Fresh Power Essence Seaweed Mask Sheet

Aritaum Fresh Power Essence Seaweed Mask Sheet Review:

After I tried the Hyaluronic Acid mask from the same collection, I literally chose the next closest color to continue my adventure! And that turned out to be seaweed, an ingredient known everywhere to revitalize your skin. Literally, my mom doesn’t even sea bathe, but she always asks me to bring some seaweeds from the sand so she can put them on her skin – and it works.
So, knowing this, I expect my face to look glorious afterwards. Will it?

Aritaum Fresh Power Essence Seaweed Mask Sheet Review:

I didn’t even finish reviewing all the Aritaum masks and they already released this new one. I personally love the color they chose, it’s that mixture of blue and green that leaves you questioning exactly what it is. As a kid in Portugal I used to mix these two color crayons to get this as a sea color! I’m betting the Aritaum designers would have gone for green, but the tea tree mask already took that color.

The mask opens easily, and you don’t have to dig deep to grab the mask.

When you pull it out, it’s soaked enough, but it’s neither drenched nor dripping. I found out that with Aritaum masks that can be good or bad depending on the formula, because the formula will make it either be really hydrated or dry before the 20 minutes are up. But, comfort wise, I prefer it when it’s not drooling down my neck!

Classic snapshot of the mask. It’s transparent, and it feels softer on the fingers for some reason – either they changed the mask slightly or it’s the formula.

Their masks have a 3 layer system, on which there’s two denser layers on the outside, and on the inside of the mask it has a soft layer that absorbs the formula, supposedly keeping the mask wet throughout the masking time.

As usual the fit of the mask is loose on my nose, so I have to adapt it by cutting it out and applying it separately. But that’s probably just me, my nose really is tall. Regardless, once you find a way for it to fit (in my case it’s cutting the nose part) then it sticks to your face much better, as you can see in the second photo. To some people the perfect fit is the mask fit, to some other it’s just pulling the mask towards the center of their face. It’s easy to find out what works for you!

The serum formula absorption. You can see in the first photo it’s so liquid it basically blended with my skin. Then I spread it and scrubbed it until it absorbed. After absorption there’s not much to show other than a healthy shine. The skin feels a little softer and more hydrated, we’ll see later how it works on the facial skin.

The scent is sweet and fresh, and the longer the mask stays on my face the more I feel these gentle “winds” that smell like good seaweed. But really discreet and not that obvious! Since I have an air purifier at home there’s basically no foreign smells, I doubt I would feel this seaweed smell in Portugal, where I have two cats and the sea next to me (yes, seaweed and sea smell different, seaweeds smell like sea sweet plants, but you have to wash off the sea smell to feel it properly). This mask generally smells fresh and sweet, with just hints of a sea plant.

There’s a generous amount of formula left so, as usual, apply it on your body or soak cotton pads and go for a second round of masking on spots that need special care.

At almost 20 minutes, my nose and lip area have dried, so it’s time to remove the mask. There’s a lot of essence on my skin so time to pat it dry. My face feels fresh and not cold while doing this, so it’s actually one of my favorite steps of the masking routines!

After the essence has absorbed it feels hydrated but somehow also sticky (which is usually a characteristic of moisturizers and not hydrating agents). Regarding the liveliness they said, my skin doesn’t look any different than it normally would. But it feels good, and elastic.

However, I won’t purchase this mask again. Although I particularly enjoyed the scent, there are masks which will give my skin the same feeling but making the results visible.
