The Troiareuke GPS Mask comes with 3 Steps in a sleek white packaging. It’s easy to take with you and isn’t bulky like some of the other sheet masks out there, which is definitely a plus in case you decide to take a few with you while you’re travelling. The packaging says at the bottom that because the products are produced by natural fermentation there may be a difference in thickness color and smell but I didn’t notice anything peculiar. All three steps have pretty neutral smells that I’ll touch on later.
Niacinamide: Also known as vitamin B3 it works with the natural substances in your skin to reduce pore size, uneven skin tones, and signs of aging. This ingredient is tolerated by all skin types and is amazing for renewing the surface layer of your skin to improve moisture retainment. It also can demonstrate anti-inflammatory effects in acne and other skin conditions. This is an essential nutrient for a healthy body and definitely a must have in your skin care routine!
Squalane: Another amazing ingredient that is compatible with all skin types because we naturally produce it ourselves! This all-around helpful oil is great for moisturizing your skin, helps with anti-aging and UV protection. It spreads very easily and penetrates deeply into your skin for prolonged results. Even though it is an oil, it does not leave an oily feel. What more could you ask for?
Galactomyces: As we all learned from Azraëlles most recent post, these babies are great for our skin. Don’t forget to read her post to find out all about the amazing benefits. But for a quick summary: they help reduce acne and improve absorption! This ingredient is only in the energy cream, so even if you suffer from fungal acne rest assured, you can still use the cleanser and the GPS mask!
Several other important ingredients are also in these beauties including: Tea Tree Leaf Oil, Witch Hazel Extract, Grapefruit Extract, and Lavender Oil. Awesome benefits include antioxidants, more hydrating effects and acne fighting effects! I think we can all agree that these are packed with great stuff.
The packaging describes this step as a Micro Cellulose bubble cleanse for impurities to make refreshed and healthy skin.
The key parts of this cleanser are the Waterhugcell technology and the Micro Bio cellulose skin scrub function. They respectively allow the skin to retain up to 120% moisture and removes excessive amounts of dead skin and other impurities caused by pollution.
The cleanser had a neutral smell and an opaque almost milky color. I didn’t realize that “bubble” meant foam so when it started foaming I was pleasantly surprised. The cleanser was quick and easy to apply and rinse off, and left my skin already more moisturized than before.
The GPS Mask is a Bio Cellulose mask which acts as a second skin to provide active ingredients efficiently.
This mask is the 4th generation of its kind, and after a bit of research I found that it is now Paraben free – happy days!
Also known as microbial cellulose, it’s a natural fiber that is eco-friendly and biodegradable. It is extremely hydrophilic and can hold up to 100 times its dry weight – talk about maximum absorption! Although it is synthesized through bacteria, it is sterile, toxin free and extremely pure. Bio Cellulose was originally created for medical purposes to treat burn victims which is where the term second skin comes from, pretty neat, huh?
This was the first time that I’ve tried a Bio Cellulose mask and I immediately fell in love. It came wrapped between two sheets for easy application: remove the first sheet, apply to your face, and then remove the second sheet. I love sheet masks but I always had the issue of it slipping down my face or falling off if I bent over – Say goodbye to those problems. When they say second skin, they mean it! I could have danced for an hour and it wouldn’t have moved an inch. That was definitely the highlight of this experience for me. The second benefit of this mask is that through the Bio Cellulose less of the serum evaporates and therefore is able to penetrate deeper into your skin, leaving it more moisturized than a regular fiber/cotton woven sheet mask.
The mask itself fit almost perfectly, although I have a small face so every mask will probably always be too big for me. It had a faint floral scent, but was not overbearing. The packaging suggests wearing the mask for 15-20 minutes, but because I forgot that I had it on, it was more like an hour for me (whoops). Like with most masks there was some leftover serum in the packaging which I applied to my face after taking off the mask – my skin was absolutely glowing after this mask.
The packaging states the cream gives energy to the skin cells for skin activation. The cream seals in all the moisture obtained from the mask to allow the active ingredients to work on the cellular level.
It was very lightweight on my skin, didn’t leave my face oily afterwards and had a very nice citrusy smell. Even after several hours my skin still felt hydrated and looked great. I thought that it might be too much at first, but my skin was loving this combination.
