111SKIN — Bio Cellulose Facial Treatment Mask Review

On the Election

Well…I guess I’m going to need more popcorn for the next four years. The new US President Elect’s victory speech was unexpectedly conciliatory. I can only hope he will rise to the occasion and prove half the electorate—including me—wrong. Good luck, USA.

Review of 111SKIN Bio Cellulose Facial Treatment Mask

I got this sheet mask in my August Ipsy bag and finally got around to using it last week. It’s most definitely the fanciest mask I’ve ever tried, since it’s from a luxury British skincare brand, 111SKIN, and retails for GBP£20. For one, single-use mask. Which is also made in Korea.

I’m actually not very big on sheet masks, and have only tried a few different kinds, so I won’t be able to do a really in-depth comparison. To be honest, I didn’t sleep very much last night, so I’m going to keep this very short!

From 111SKIN:

The Bio Cellulose Mask uses the latest in face mask technology to instantly transport beneficial nutrients into the skin and provide instant hydration

111SKIN Bio Cellulose Mask utilises the most advanced mask technology on the market to deliver beneficial nutrients into the dermis. The mask adheres to your face like a second skin. The gel like structure of the mask will instantly cool and regulate body temperature. Since the fibres of the masks are 500x finer than tissue masks, the bio cellulose instantly locks moisture into your skin and enables a deeper penetration of three key ingredients that we have added. This mask contains Arbutin to brighten, Silk Amino Acids to condition and Centella Asiatica to stimulate collagen production.

The mask is interesting: a thin gel-like sheet, sandwiched between two pieces of gauze that protect it in the package. You gently remove the gauze on either side of the mask, and place it over your face.

It was cut reasonably well to fit my face, with lots of cuts and darts to fold over curves of the nose, etc. The instructions say to leave it on the face for 20 minutes, then to remove it and rub the remaining serum into the skin.

The mask and serum felt pretty nice and cool when placed onto the skin. After a while, though, I did find that the mask felt heavy and was starting to slide a little in certain places, like around my mouth. I promptly removed it after 20 minutes because I got tired of the sliding around. The serum rubbed into the skin nicely.

Overall, I didn’t particularly notice any difference in my skin. Perhaps it’s something that needs to be used over a longer period to appreciate any improvement, but I only received one mask. It did generally feel better than some cheaper masks, but since I didn’t notice an improvement in my skin and the price for this mask is ridiculously high, I have no plans to buy it in the future.

111SKIN Bio Cellulose Mask retails for GBP£20 (1 unit).

111SKIN is based in London, England. It was founded by a plastic surgeon, Dr Alexandrides (no first name given), in his Harley Street Practice in London. The skincare line is based on his “Dramatic Healing Serum”, which was given to patients recovering from surgery. The serum was based on a NAC Y² formula he developed with space scientists, when he learned that skin ages faster in space.

  1. Jeez, not heard of this brand but it sounds above my price range. £20 for a single use mask is crazy, that’s beats the price of my favourite mask which I’ve had about 30 uses from so far and was only £11. Jeez louise. And to see nothing noticeable would just add insult to injury.
    I find bio-celluse ones generally more effective than sheets, but I hate the texture of them, makes me think of gross things that shouldn’t be put on the face.

  2. I so, SO, wanted a different outcome to the election. I was so sad and disappointed in the American people! So much uncertainty right now. Funny, my SO mentioned that he read a transcript of Trump’s speech and it didn’t even sound like Trump at ALL. Who knows, maybe he’ll just be a puppet / figurehead. However, who he chooses to surround himself with is frightening. Pence is ultra religious nut.
    Buuuut, back to the task at hand. This sheet mask! The texture of this sounds really interesting but £20 for a single use product – NO THANKS. Maybe the Trumps can afford it.
