Catena anti-oxidation red wine mask

I bought this mask with over 10 different paper/tube masks from Sasa at the same time.
This mask (come with 5 pieces) was $10.40 U.S. on sale. The mask is pretty soaky wet when I got the mask from the pouch. The scent is like yogurt. I applied this on my face (unfortunately, this is a face mask without the neck potion) and massage the remaining fluid from the pouch to my neck/hands.
Forgot to mention, I usually cleanse the face, and then apply whitening or hydrating toner and put some eye mask from the tube before I place the mask on my face.

It's about $2.08 per mask, quite cheap. It's quite hydrating. I left the mask on my skin at least 20 minutes. The 1st time after use, the skin looks clear and refreshed. I can't tell too much about the lightening effect.

Hydration the skin is very important after using whitening mask. I found that most of the whitening mask dries out the skin. My moisture masks include Clarins Moisture Quenching Hydra-Care Cream (for combination skin)
Eye treatment: Lancome
Primordiale eye cream and Sisley Eye and Lip Balm

I have sensitive skin and this mask doesn't break me out. Usually, I use whitening mask only when my skin condition is pretty good. Most of the whitening masks are more irritating than the hydrating masks.

Based on the first-time use, I don't think that I would repurchase again. Maybe if I use more often, the mask will have more effect on my skin. I will update this post later on.

Update after two day using the mask: My face seems to be brighter and lighten using the same skincare routine that I have been using. It seems that this mask takes the skincare product more absorbing. The whitening/brightening effect lasts for two days.

The scent is light honey smell. After applying on my lip, it forms a film of layer covering on my lips. I don't feel that the lip balm is absorbing. As the product name is "Weatherproofing", I guess that it would be perfect for applying this balm after another more moisturized lip balm for protection if you are walking on the street in winter. Since I am trying this product in summer, I don't like the greasy feel on my lip. I prefer the Aveeno lip balm that gives my lip moisturized right away and the effect is more long lasting.
