Hi, everyone! I’m here to review the Bonvivant Orginal Chrome Mask. I bought this a month ago when it first came out and I think it’s a good time to tell you my opinion on it. First, Bonvivant is a Memebox branch and they specialize in skin masks and sheet masks. I’ve tried their Illuminator Age Cover Mask Pack and Water Lock Sleeping Pack and I enjoyed using them, So I had high hopes for this peel off type mask. Anyway, let’s get into the review!
When I bought the mask it came with the silicone spatula as a promotion. The jar contains 85ml/2.87 fl.oz. of the pearly liquid. The smell is on the strong side, slight rubbing alcohol smell lingers. I don’t mind it, but for those of you sensitive to strong smells beware. The mask is quite runny so applying a thin layer is advisable. If it’s too thick it will run down your face and also it won’t dry evenly.
Applying with the spatula was easy enough, I had to use the edge to scrape off excess product and thin out the thicker layers. It takes about 20-30 mins to dry completely, but like all masks, the nose and under the lip area drys up within 5-10 mins. The peeling part is not very painful, to me at least, I’ve had worse. But if you get some of the product on your eyebrows and hairline it will pull some of the hair out. It doesn’t peel off in one piece, but still in large chunks. It rips easily, so if you want to peel it off in one piece you have to be very patient or have super peeling ninja skills. I have neither.
The effect is… not impressive. It’s cooling so I’m sure it had some effect on tightening up my pores, it wasn’t very hydrating at all, and it didn’t brighten up my skin more than a regular sheet mask would have. It did, however, make my skin feel smoother since it has a peeling factor. I don’t recommend this for sensitive skin types because the peeling will aggravate the skin and the smell might also irritate the skin.
Overall I’d say, it’s a very pretty product and fun to see it change to chrome, but with the effort of spreading it out on the face and then having to peel it off and also possibly washing off stray bits is not the best in my opinion. I’d rather open a pouch and get #sheetfaced tbh. I think this was a gimmicky product sold on looks and not performance. it makes for great selfies, but I will not be repurchasing this~ It goes for 24,000KRW on Memebox and right now it’s on sale for 19,200KRW… I wonder why .
