Hi friends! It has definitely been a while since my last post. I had a shoulder injury that made it very difficult to move. I am back finally haha. I promise that this week I’ll be swatching the Kat Von D Shade & Light Glimmer Eye Palette and I’ll be doing a review on Mont Bleu and some of the products they were kind enough to send me.
I decided to do a post on a face mask because it has been quite some time since I did a new brand or type. This product I received in my Nomakenolife July subscription box. This is the Hollywood Enzyme Orchid mask.
The Hollywood Enzyme Orchid mask has been around for almost 50 years and uses enzymes to clean and soften skin at home.
I see that pictures are disabled in the new Android update right now so I guess we’re waiting for the bugs to be fixed. As you can see, the packaging that the mask comes in is a lot longer than other face mask packs.
This product is made in Japan and all the writing is in Japanese. Have no fear, I’m going to walkthrough this mask step-by-step so you know what to do! Please note that the company has their website on the back.
The first step for this treatment is to tear open the package. I’m sorry I had to tear your head, miss enzyme model 😭😭
When you get the package open, there is… another package! Wait, what? Exactly. This purple package two sides. The top is full of powder and the bottom is a cream that gets mixed into the powder.
The back of the packaging shows the directions on how to fully combine both parts without making too much of a mess.
As you can see, you want to mix the cream part into the powder by pushing up to the powder section of the pack. I moved it up there by curling the package up like a tube of toothpaste.
When your cream is in the powder section, it will puff up like the picture above. I’m really sorry but updating is hard because the pictures disappear and I can’t use them for reference.
Next, you want to tear where the powder portion of the package is…
The inside of the package should look something like this! The directions say to take a small spoon and mix both powder and cream together.
I used my Boscia Charcoal Pudding mask spoon to mix this together but I recommend a spoon with a longer handle. 😂 I made a mess.
After washing your face, you can apply the mixture. The consistency reminds me of a whipped butter. The smell is floral and very faint.
This is what the mask looks like completely applied. There was more than enough product in this package and it says to keep the mask on for 3-6 minutes for sensitive to dry skin and 7-10 minutes for normal to oily skin. I kept mine on for 10 minutes because the summer months turn me into an oil slick.
After the 10 minutes, you can see how the mask absorbed into my skin and during the time it was on it felt kind of tingly.
This is what my face looks like after I rinsed it off with warm water. It did make my face look brighter but my skin was so smooth. It’s been a while since I took the mask off and my face still has the refreshing tingle and looks just as nice. Xo
