Mask Digest: Annie’s Way Fantasy Mask Line

I love Annie’s Way Masks and was excited when they sent me their redesigned and reformulated their invisible silk thin masks (original reviews here and here), now renamed Fantasy Line.   Annie’s Way products are one of my favorite Taiwanese brands and I was introduced to them over 2 years ago!  They are infamously known for their jelly wash off mask packs and I have reviewed several Annie’s Way products since I started using them (reviews)  Thank you Annie’s Way for sending me these lovely items ~ did I mention how much I love Annie’s Way products?

 I received these products complementary to review and was not paid.  All reviews are my own honest opinion and  I never have been asked to write copy for a brand.  This blog post might contain promo codes, affiliate and referral links, which using my links will help generate a small commission that helps support my blog at no extra cost to you.

Can you see the mask?? Annie’s Way Q10 + Syzygium Firming Mask: Annie’s Way has redesigned and reformulated their invisible silk thin masks and I am excited to try them out! The packaging is bright, colorful and Annie’s Way calls it their “Fantasy Line” due to the beautiful designs. The Q10 + Syzyguim Firming mask will leave your skin soft, supple and glowing, firm skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This contains Q10 and silver oxide for skin repair, arctium lappa and syzyguim jambos for nourishing, sodium hyaluronate, glycerin, panthenol and lecithin for hydrating and moisturizing and boerhavia diffusa for soothing and calming your skin. There is also phytic acid which will help gently exfoliate.

I have reviewed the original silk masks from Annie’s Way here at my blog, so I am familiar with the packaging and how thin these masks are. The mask comes with a plastic protector to help keep this very thin mask from crumbling into a sodden mess in the pouch and for ease of application. This biodegradable mask is dripping in a watery, scentless essence and the mask is very silky and soft on my skin. Now, this does take some patience to apply as it is so thin, so take your time and make sure not to pull it too much, as although it won’t tear, but it does lose its shape ~ but once you have it in place, it adheres tightly to my face. .

Despite the thinness of the mask, I am able to leave this on for about 30 minutes, as it is so wet with essence, it doesn’t dry out that quickly. After I removed it, my skin feels REALLY hydrated ~ like I just came from a shower ~ and my skin is soft and supple. This mask really did plump up fine lines and reduce redness, leaving my skin looking clearer and brighter. I am happy with this mask and can’t wait to try the other ones in this collection.

Ingredients: water, butylene glycol, carbomer, panthenol, hydrogenated lecithin, glycerin, potassium hydroxide, sodium hyaluronate, boerhavia diffusa root extract, phenoxyethanol, glycine soja oil, lecithin, pentasodium pentetate, syzygium jambos leaf extract, caprylyl glycol, xanthan gum, potassium sorbate, ubiquinone, phytic acid, silver oxide, chondrus crispus (carrageenan) extract, citric acid  cosDNA

Annie’s Way Pearl & 💦Hyaluronic Acid Brightening Mask I have to say the new packaging is SO beautiful.  This one contains several ingredients to help brighten your skin ~ pearl, phytic acid, and MAP (magnesium ascorbyl phosphate), a stable, non irritating derivative of vitamin C. This also has hydrating hyaluronic acid and once again, this is a winner from Annie’s Way. Like all of their uber thin sheet masks, it is soaked in a watery essence that has a slightly bitter scent, but it is very faint. The mask has a plastic protector as these really thin masks can be tricky to apply, but it fits nicely once on.

Even though the mask is really thin, it has all of that essence, so I am able to leave on for 30 minutes and when I removed, my skin tone did look brighter overall, more radiant and very hydrated! The effects of the brightening are temporary, but this is a great mask to use right before you have that special event ~ as it does not leave a sticky or tacky residue and dries down quickly to a nice satin finish.  My secret to having that infamous V-Line jaw?  Looky here

Ingredients: water,butylene glycol, carbomer, panthenol, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate,potassium hydroxide, sodium hyaluronate, boeravia diffusa root extract, phenoxyethanol,hydrolyzed pearl, pentasodium pentetate, fragrance, morus alba root extract, phytic acid, silver oxide cosDNA 

 

Annie’s Way 🌱Tea Tree + Burdock Anti Acne Invisible Silk Mask  I love their invisible sheet mask material (it isn’t for everyone, I know), the fit and how drippy wet these masks are. The Tea Tree + Burdock is probably my favorite out of the newly revamped 🐉Fantasy Line ~ it is for oily skin, purifies pores and oil controlling. Tea Tree is a great antibacterial and blemish healer and works well with burdock root extract, as that is an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial ingredient while helping to balance your skin’s moisture/oil. This also has antioxidant green tea, hydrating sodium hyaluronate and soothing, calming anti-inflammatory boerhavia diffusa. Like all of their masks in the Fantasy Line, this mask has a plastic sheet so that the mask will hold its shape and also for ease of application. Do not peel the plastic sheet away from the mask right away ~ unfold the mask with the plastic sheet, then position the mask with the plastic sheet facing outwards, press the mask into your face and then gently peel the plastic sheet away from the invisible sheet mask ~ I normally hold down the edge of the sheet mask while I remove the plastic sheet. There is tons of a clear, watery essence in the pouch, so I just layer over the sheet masks at the areas where I know will dry out first on me.

This has a tea tree scent, which doesn’t bother me as I love the scent of tea tree and this has a cooling effect. I was able to leave on for 30 minutes, which is great for such a thin mask and my skin was very hydrated, soft, looked very clean and calm. The essence dries down quickly and leaves my skin with a nice matte look (no oil!) and it is quite refreshing. If you have oily or blemish prone skin, I highly recommend this mask!  

Ingredients: water, butylene glycol, melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf oil, PEG-60 hydrogenated castor oil, carbomer, propylene glycol, panthenol, potassium hydroxide, boerhavia diffusa root extract, sodium hyalyronate, phenoxyethanol, camellia sinensis leaf extract, fragrance, arctium lappa root extract, pentasodium pentetate, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, phytic acid, silver oxide cosDNA

 

Annie’s Way Hyaluronic Acid + Seaweed Hydrating Mask Hyaluornic acid helps lock in moisture and makes your skin soft and hydrated. This also has carrageenan and clary sage to lock that moisture in your skin, while red alga and boerhavia diffusa extracts aid in protecting your skin against environmental stressors.

These masks from Annie’s Way are made with an transparent and ultra thin silky material that clings to my skin easily. It does come with a plastic protector as you will need that to adhere the mask to your face and then gently pull it back ~ once you use a couple of these masks, you do get used to the very thin material. Despite its thinness, these masks are really soaked with a watery essence so it doesn’t dry out quickly on my face. This version didn’t have a scent that I could detect and it was very refreshing on my skin while wearing it. Once I removed it, my skin felt cool and soft, very hydrated. A lot of Taiwanese masks do not leave a sticky or tacky residue, and this one is no exception ~ it dried down nicely, leaving a matte, but hydrated finish to my skin.  Sometimes, a nice hydrating mask is what you want!!

 Ingredients: water, butylene glycol, propanediol, carbomer, tocopheryl acetate, panthenol, potassium hydroxide, boerhavia diffusa root extract, sodium hyaluronate, chondrus crispus (carrageenan) extract, phenoxyethanol, glycerin, salvia sclarea (clary) extract, pentasodium penetate, lithothamnium calcarum (red algae) extract, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, phytic acid, silver oxide cosDNA 

And finally, the fabulous duo!

Annie’s Way Ginkgo Seaweed Anti Wrinkle Eye Mask This is a first for me and Annie’s Way ~ I have never tried their eye masks before.  This is made with ginkgo extract, an anti-inflammatory, reduce redness and is an antioxidant that will help boost collagen production, leaving skin firm and toned.  This is important with the skin under my eyes!  Rich in natural sodium, red seaweed (chondrus cripsus) pulls in moisture, plumping up eye wrinkles and softening fine lines.  Lithothamnium calcareum algae is full of minerals, vitamins and amino acids, providing moisture to skin, while removing excess water, de-puffing the skin around your eyes.  Mulberry root is a skin brighter and antioxidant.  This also has vitamin E, panthenol and squalane. 

The eye masks are a traditional butterfly shape, very thin and easy to apply.  This has a lovely light scent to it ~ I cannot place it, but it is very pleasant ~ the mask is dripping wet with a thicker-than-water essence and there is tons left over in the pouch.  I just add the excess essence to my neck area.

After removing, my eye area looked refreshed, fine lines were plumped up with moisture and the skin felt cool to touch.  The effects are temporary, of course, but I liked these refreshing, hydrating eye masks so much that I did purchase a box of them!

Ingredients: water, butylene glycol,carbomer, squalane, tocopheryl acetate, panthenol, potassium hydroxide,  sodium hyaluronate, boerhavia diffusa root extract,  chondrus crispus (carrageenan) extract, phenoxyethanol, fragrance,  pentasodium pentetate, ginkgo biloba leaf extract, lithothamnium calcarum extract, morus alba root extract, phytic acid, silver oxide cosDNA

Annie’s Way Lavender Chamomile Soothing Mask  So, I love lavender ~ healing, antiseptic, oil balancing, relaxing and chamomile ~ soothing, calming and hydration ~ and this also has calendula, which helps refine, repair and hydrate skin. Like all of the masks in the Fantasy Line, this contains phytic acid, a natural little-known alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that provides gentle exfoliation to your skin. Phytic acid comes from rice and has been used in Asian countries since the 9th century, keeping skin bright and even toned.  Not only does it help with removing surface dead skin cells, it can prevent hyper-pigmentation before it appears, as it helps suppress the melanin production in your skin.  It is one of the few acids that does not cause photo-sensitivity.  This is why all of Annie’s Way masks that contain phytic acid leave my skin looking very brighter and refreshed.  This lavender mask is no exception.

It is dripping wet with a watery essence that smells like lavenders ~ it is so lovely and relaxing ~ it is the most aromatic of the Fantasy Line masks.  This mask is so wet that I can leave it on for 40 minutes before removing and my skin looks brighter, refreshing and calmer.  This is another favorite mask of mine in this series. 

Ingredientswater, butylene glycol, glycerin, propylene glycol, carbomer, panthenol, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) extract, potassium hydroxide, sodium hyaluronate, boerhavia diffusa root extract, phenoxyethanol, chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower extract, fragrance, calendula officinalis extract, pentasodium pentetate, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, phytic acid, silver oxide cosDNA

Final Thoughts

I didn’t review the Peptide and Rose Mask, as I am allergic to rose ingredients, but I did review all of the other masks sent to me.  I will say that this is another fantastic lineup from Annie’s Way.  My favorites are the Tea Tree, Eye Patches and Lavender masks ~ in fact, I have purchased a full box of the Tea Tree and Eye Patch Masks from Annie’s Way eBay Store.  I have plans to purchase the Lavender ones as well as I love the scent and it is so calming and brightening.  It is funny, because when I ordered the Eye Patches, they send me an extra mask with this note

I love that Annie’s Way read my reviews and learned which were my favorites!!   Have you tried any Annie’s Way masks before?  Which ones?
