Review: Wish Formula Panda Eye Essence Mask (Sponsored Product)

Hey y’all! I am finally back to my first product review proper of the year!

And today’s subject is something that I used last night and it was rather relaxing that I actually dozed off in the middle of the whole masking – I wore a face mask over as well.

The eye mask is from a Kbeauty brand, Wish Formula, and it’s their Panda Eye Essence Mask.

Read on to find out all about it!

First, a little product info from the brand:

Something from me:

 

1
I really like the slightly larger/broader wing at the end. It means it can cover the crow’s feet zone, as well as providing aid for the front corner crinkling, under-eye wrinkles, and under-puff lines.

Did you know that some eyelash extension shops have started using these under-eye masks as a support for during the session? It’s pampering, to say the least!

Try-out period : Once; 20 mins
Personal take : I did not have any expectations when I was using this pair of eye mask. Maybe a little more hydrated skin, that is about it.

Being a 100% cotton sheet, I had to ensure that I watched the clock closely and not exceed its instructed duration of wear.

The eye mask is thoroughly moistened with the eye serum and I supposed because of the fermented honey ingredient and Vitamin C, the serum took a yellowish appearance. The serum had a thicker, gel-ish texture, resembling that of a somewhat diluted honey. This is the kind of texture I would look for in a mask as it would be a lot more hydrating and pampering for the skin.

Now, as for the ingredients in this Panda eye mask, I am glad that it contains goodies like Vitamin C, Arbutin, Lactic Acid, and fermented filtrates of Centella Asiatic, Chinese medicinal herbs, Soybean, and anti-aging Arginine and Adenosine. All in all, the ingredient list of this eye mask screams repairing, brightening and anti-aging! Okay, but those who are sensitive to Lemon Peel Oil might want to steer clear of it, especially one that’s used directly around the eye area.

As for its after-use effect, I certainly loved it! It was easy to use and apply. The larger and broader wing of the eye mask also helped in smoothing and caring for areas like corner crinkles, under-puff lines, and of course the crow’s feet. In fact, after using it for just 20 mins, the fine lines do look a little better. And while it does immediately brighten the under eye area, the effect is just temporary – as with most eye masks. It’s also a pity that the eye mask is of a cotton material, and not a hydro-gel one. The latter is good for its extended wear, definitely longer than the proposed 20~30 mins.

Will I recommend it? : Oh YES! I will! Calculating its pricing, and with current currency exchange, a pair of Panda Eye Essence Mask would cost about USD$3.80. That, plus the number of beneficial ingredients the mask contains, this is definitely an eye mask I’d personally use it (almost) daily. Even better to purchase it during a sales.
