I loved Petitfee Agave Cooling Hydrogel Eye Masks so much that I had to try out their facial mask in this line. Thanks to online K-Beauty store Jolse, I am able to review this for you!
Skin Type/Concerns: Oily, blemish prone, pores, aging, hyper-pigmentation, fine lines/wrinkles

These masks have basically the same ingredients as the eye gels, with just a few ingredients that aren’t included ~ pinus palustris, bambusa textilis stem extract and citrus grandis (grapefruit) seed extract are only found in the eye gels. Agave Americana lives for the hot desert and comes from Mexico originally. It has the ability to store water in its cells and has antiseptic, healing and anti-inflammatory properties. It is rich in vitamins: thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), skin brightening C, D and K ~ vitamin K is used all the time as an ingredient to help lighten dark circles under the eyes. Provitamin A (beta carotene) provides moisture and suppleness.
These masks contain the same 5 Blue Energy Complex as the eye gels, which includes agave, blueberry, spirulina, eggplant and caffeine. Superfood blueberry contain more antioxidants than green tea, full of vitamins A, E and C, brightening and smoothing your skin. Spirulina platensis is a micro algae which has powerful anti-aging, antioxidant benefits. It contains high sources of vitamin E and carotene, along with vitamins B complex and C, minerals, essential amino acids and enzymes, all which help with premature aging. (source Natural Actives) Eggplant has antioxidant benefits, contains flavonoids and it very beneficial for blemish prone skin, due to its anti-inflammatory properties, antimicrobial benefits and helps reduce oil production. Caffeine helps reduce puffiness, by stimulating and improving blood circulation
This also has moisturizing shea butter, antioxidant green tea, soothing mugwort, healing houttuynia cordata and sapphire powder. The sapphire powder is what gives this mask its sparkly look. Its main benefits on the skin include: healing and cooling burns, reducing damage and detoxifying the skin.

Jolse sells these masks in a box of 5, so I had enough to try out and rate their performance. The packaging is quite cute, with the agave plant on the front and the masks comes doubly protected. There is a clear plastic sheet and a white plastic sheet protecting the sparkly vibrant blue mask with its slight geranium scent. This is a two part mask, so you can customize the fit a little bit. Once side of the hydrogel mask is smoother than the other and that is the side I placed outwards as I feel the mesh side should be placed directly on your skin. The fit is excellent and it adheres strongly.
There isn’t a lot of essence left over~ so the mask actually stays put on my face without sliding downwards. I really appreciate that as normally with hydrogels, I have to lie down for a few minutes so it has time to dry a bit and adhere to my face. These also feel a lot nicer if you put them in the frig before using, as they will be very refreshing ** however, read on as this is a cooling mask regardless of putting it in the frig or not.
Petitfee Agave Cooling Hydrogel Facial Masks are just like the eye gels ~ they are cooling even if you don’t put them in the frig first. As I continue to wear the mask, the cooling effect is more apparent. Unlike a lot of hydrogel masks, this mask doesn’t slip around while I am wearing it and isn’t uncomfortable to wear. These do stick nicely and don’t peel away from the face as they dry down. After 15 to 20 minutes, I remove and my skin does look more plumped up and hydrated, and more pores looked non-existent! This is a hydrating, soothing and cooling relief mask, which in the cooler months, you might wonder why you would want this. I don’t know about you, but I always run a bit hot and with the forced hot air during the wintertime, my skin gets flushed and dry ~ these masks not only hydrate but provide cooling relief too.
