HYDRATE YOUR SKIN WITH WHEN


Many people constantly remark that their skin gets very dry when they fly. I have never really experienced that as my skin is pretty much dry All. The. Time. But knowing that I was about to fly to Arizona, which is pretty much a dry dessert climate year round, for my cousins wedding I wanted to take extra precaution. After all, who doesn't want to look good at a wedding even if it is not your own?

The day I was set to fly out I still had to work a full day and then commute to the airport. Time was a factor but I knew that taking just a few minutes to love my skin would be in my best interest. I took the time to apply When Glamour Base sheet mask which actually takes no time at all. I first made sure that my face and my hands were clean and patted my skin dry. I removed the all natural bio-cellulose sheet and aligned the openings to the eyes and nose with mine. I pressed the center of it on my face and then smoothed the rest of it on. The sheet is actually made from coconuts and can hold essence 100 times its weight which is 10 times more than paper or fabric sheet masks. The serum infused mask felt cooling on the skin and stayed on without slipping. It can be an interesting feeling to have a serum infused sheet applied to your face but the end result is rewarding. I took the rest of the serum in the pouch and applied it liberally to my neck and hands and then went about finishing packing. 

Fifteen minutes later I was packed and my When mask had delivered natural hydration to my parched skin. At this point the mask had begun to dry but wasn't completely depleted of moisture. It was easy to remove and I went in with some hydrating serum afterwards to help extend the moisturizing effect of the mask. Off to work I went without makeup which is not the norm for me but I didn't want to have makeup on for about 20 hours as my day was set up to be. Throughout the day I still noticed how soft my skin was almost like I had just had a facial. At the end of my extremely long day I stood before the mirror ready to wash my face and go to bed. I could still feel the change in my skin as I splashed water over it. 

The wedding was the following day late in the evening and my skin was looking and feeling great. I noticed how smooth my makeup went on and the dry patches under my eyes were not as noticeable making the makeup not cling to it. I made a mental note to pick up a handful of these masks as they are the best pre-night out skincare routine. Quick and easy and out the door. But most of all, effective!

  2. Never heard of When and I'm not sure I can get them here in Germany but I will definitely keep my eyes open. I do love using masks to clean and hydrate though!

    1. I think they are more of a new product. Probably give them a bit and you will be able to find them.

  4. I seem to have the mentality of "it takes too much time" to put on a face mask but really, it actually doesn't! No excuses from now on!

    1. Nope. Put it on and go about your business and then it's done!
