You peel the opaque off first because you need the transparent one remaining so that you can visibly position the mask on your face. Don’t worry as the opaque sheet gets off really quickly, so you kinda know that it’s the one you’re supposed to get rid of first.
The following photos are me using the mask. Basically after removing the opaque sheet, you position and stick the segment onto the face (with the hydrogel mask itself facing the skin and the plastic sheet facing the world). Once it’s positioned, it’s important carefully take the plastic sheet off, taking care that the hydrogel sheet doesn’t get peeled off as well…
While this was on, it smelled like a mild candied apple. I think you can liken the smell to the apple perfumes DKNY has. It doesn’t smell like the sweet apple scent you sniff in air fresheners, but you can trace the smell of apples in it. It also had an occasional feeling of tightness and some tingling, and I think this is due to the pore tightening aspect of the mask.
Thanks for a wonderful detailed review!
Very thorough review! I've been on the fence about these, but I have added a few to my cart. RRS now has them for $1.48 US, which is a great price if you already plan on hauling. Which, of course, is the only way to shop at RRS!
