KBEAUTY | A. by BOM Ultra Therapy Floral Leaf Mask #100DaysofSheetMasks

Just when I thought I would love the idea of mini masks, comes the mini mask PLUS the full sheet mask! Ever since I started sheet masking with the vigor and discipline of an Olympic athlete, I have discovered sheet masks that I never thought would have ever made it to market, but here we are and some days I look relatively normal while on others I am a unicorn. With the discovery of Korean brand A. by BOM via meejmuse on YouTube, the concept of two step masking is one that I am totally in love with!

A. by BOM Cosmetics is the product of the A. by BOM Boutique, a luxury beauty salon run by Kim Bomi in a very affluent area of Seoul known as the Cheongdam, Gangnam district. The brand prides itself on creating skincare with ingredients that balance nature and harmony while still being "adaptable to the needs of today's world".

The 2-step Ultra Floral Leaf Mask focuses on brightening the skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles using niacinamide and various flower extracts and a whackload of hydration. The first step is the Floral Leaf Patch which are targeted mini masks which come in the form of printed pink sakura flowers that can be used on the cheeks, eye area (crows feet) and forehead. Brightening agent niacinamide and flower extracts are found in the top half of the essence ingredients list so points there!

The second step is the full Ultra Floral Leaf Mask which is super thin sheet mask made of Lyocell, a biodegradeable cellulose fibre made from dissolving pulp using dry jet-wet spinning and adheres perfectly to the skin! It's so thin that you may have to do a double-take to see that you have it on! The essence lists sodium hyaluronate as ingredient #6 which is impressive so plump skin here we come!

My cheeks are always on the red side so I tend to want to calm as well as brighten that area. The sakura mini masks came simply with a mesh backing to separate the two so I just opened it up like a book and applied the mini masks first on my cheeks.

Right after, I applied the Lyocell sheet mask over top and I immediately noticed how thick and plump this essence was! There was not only a lot of essence, but it was "slow-moving" so just reeeeal thick! It was GLORIOUS! I had so much leftover for my entire body!

Mask Summary:

Scent: Lightly floral
Duration: 10-20 minutes
Thickness: Super thin
Mask Fit: Fairly good! No chin goatee, but a bit short on my forehead.
Tackiness: Medium, but worth the results!
Hydration: Fantastic!

Final verdict: This was a tacky finish mask, BUT the results were SO WORTH IT! I woke up with absolutely glowing skin and even after I washed my face in the morning, my skin still felt incredibly plump! It's like I had a shot of hyaluronic acid in my face! I should note that this mask (and most face masks I use) do not have silicones or other common "line-filling" and "plumping" ingredients so the results I got were really quite amazing! Highly recommend this one!

You can find A. by BOM in various Kbeauty e-tailers, but I got my mask in a pack of 5 at T&T Supermarket!
