SHEET MASK | A by BOM Ultra Cool Leaf Mask

I started taking my sheet mask game REALLY seriously in the middle of 2018 and from there, I discovered so many Korean brands that took sheet masking to a whole other level. To this day, even with the amount of masking I do, there are thousands of masks I have yet to try! The quality, creativity and technology of Asian sheet masks has always been so much more advanced than what is available in the North American market with the multi-step masks being among my favourite examples of this. A. by BOM is one of the coolest and earliest brands I discovered and I cannot believe I have let almost two years go by without featuring them again!

Though the brand has the classic single masks, I really love their multi-step masks as I find them to be a unique way of addressing specific skincare issues. The last A. by Bom mask I featured had me wearing flowers on my cheeks and now I've got leaves! The Ultra Cool Leaf Mask focuses on soothing and cooling the skin while hydrating with lemon balm, mint leaf, applemint and cactus extracts. You might think that layering a sheet mask on top of mini masks would be a little uncomfortable, but because the sheet mask itself is made of 100% Lycocell, a super thin biodegradeable cellulose fibre, it layers on top seamlessly.

The first step are the "cool leaf patches" which can be placed anywhere on the face as depicted in the diagram. They can be around the eyes, smile lines, nose or where you would like your skin to be "cooled". For me, I always want to focus on reducing redness in my cheeks and in retrospect around the nose so the next time I use this, I will move the smaller leaves to my nose.

Once your leaves are in place, unfold the sheet mask and do your best not to move the leaves you have just placed. There is a ton of essence so take your time in adjusting. I tend to anchor the mask around the eyes and nose first and then adjust from the forehead down to the chin, but you can see that this mask is thin AF and sits SO nicely on the skin.

Final verdict: Oh, hands down I would get more A. by Bom masks like these! In fact, I already have! Unlike the last mask I tried from them, this one didn't have any tackiness AND my skin was hydrated and cool upon removal. Ingredients were decent with the plant-based featured ingredients in the top half of the list so no complaints from me! This was a great mask and fun experience which gave good results so I would highly recommend it!
