I got a sample of Jane Clare Blueberry Revital Firming Mask sheet in my September Glamabox. After my not so pleasing experience with the HydroSpark HA Hydrating Serum I really wasn’t expecting anything from this mask. But in the spirit of finally using all the products that I have been stacking and since it provided a quick review option I decided to give it a go (heck I’m all about transparency :D). So did it bowl me over?

The mask had a lovely light berry smell to it. Usually such types of scents have a sharpness to it that some might find offensive. But this was very nice. The mask itself was quite unique in texture and something that was completely new to me. Smooth jelly rubber like texture only much smoother and softer. They call it Bio – Cellulose material. There was enough serum left in the packet for me to cover both my arms from my finger tips to a couple inches above my elbow and my neck.
Ok first off let me start by saying that the texture of the mask was so unique that I was actually confused which of the 3 layers would go on my face. There was a white plastic sheet, a jelly like thing and a cloth like material drenched in the serum. Well obviously the white would have to go. But between the other 2 it took some serious debating on my part to choose. Logically the jelly like was supposed to be the mask as that was the layer that was between the other 2 but it being so strange and the cloth like layer so similar to what one usually encounters in mask sheets plus the additional fact that it was soaked in the serum making it the more obvious choice. But thankfully logic won out over obviousness and I encountered my first Bio – Cellulose mask 🙂
How to describe the texture? Hmm….Ok don’t get grossed out but to me it actually looked like artificial skin….what one might use for skin grafts. If you are asking how the heck I know that all I can say is that I saw it on Discovery 😛 It has this thinness to it topped off with the feel and smoothness. Really it is quite unique and no not gross at all. It hugs the skin better and feels pretty good on. As for the product itself – OMG my skin loved it!
It has been literally crying since sometime and all the ineffective products that I have been trying did not help matters one bit. It wanted some love and a lot of moisture. After using this mask my face felt soft and plumped and comfortable. I cant say anything about firmness but it really helped the overall texture and feel of it. And this feeling lasted till the next day. It looked fresh. I lasted a day and half, after using this, without any moisturizer or cream on my face. And you know how I have been lamenting the dryness of my skin since the last few posts. Honestly I loved it to bits!
This is something that I will purchase. It took me by complete surprise especially given my first experience with the brand. Priced at HKD 380 (Rs. 3062/- approx) for a box which contains 3 pieces in it. Damn! That is like 1000 bucks for a sheet!!! O_o Okkk…..Ahem! It was really really good but given the price I’m not sure if I would be tempted to dish out that much for 1 sheet. Sigh! All good things….But I’m happy I got to try it out and who knows maybe one day when the Rupee is all bright and shiny I might get myself a box….or two 😉
