Neutrogena Hydrogel Mask & Capsule Sleeping Mask

I tend to be very lazy in lots of things, but when it comes to facial mask, I'm probably one of the most diligent person you'll ever known. Because I have a pretty busy schedule and always on the go, it is very important for me to have some "me time" at night to pamper my skin. I'm constantly on the lookout for facial masks, and recently I get to try out 2 new masks from Neutrogena!

First, let's have a look at the Neutrogena Hydrogel Mask.

Compared to wash-off masks, sheet masks is so much more convenient, especially if you are travelling. The Neutrogena Hydrogel Mask is an 100% paperless mask which holds up to 50% more essence than a paper face mask. As the hydrogel melts, the serum on the mask is absorbed into the skin. On top of this, the face mask contours the skin nicely and seals in its hydrating formula for optimal absorption too.

The hydrogel mask comes in 2 variants:
 - Fine Fairness Hydrogel Mask - contains Niacinamide which leaves skin luminous and radiant looking.
- Hydro Boost Hydrogel Mask - contains 100% natural derived Hyaluronic Acid to replenish moisture continuously, leaving skim optimally hydrated, radiant and supple.

After a hectic December month, I'm gonna try out the Hydro Boost Hydrogel Mask.

There are 2 parts to the mask - one for the cheek and chine, the other for the forehead and nose. I like this design better, as I get to adjust the mask to fit my face nicely. Unlike the usual one-piece sheet mask, it is either covering a corner of my eye or my lips. I notice the mask is thinner than the usual hydrogel mask. I was expecting lots of dripping of the serum, but to my surprise there was none.

As per instruction, I put on the mask for 15 minutes before removing it. Usually there will not quite a bit of excess serum left on my face after I remove my sheet mask, but not this time. There was hardly any serum left on the mask itself, and I believe my skin really needs all the moisture from the mask.

The Hydrogel gel is ONLY available in Guardian with RM 13.90 per piece.

Next up, the Neutrogena Capsule Sleeping Mask.

Same as the hydrogel mask, there are 2 variants to the capsule sleeping mask too:

- Fine Fairness Capsule Sleeping Mask - contains Niacinamide which leaves skin luminous and radiant looking.
- Hydro Boost Capsule Sleeping Mask - contains 100% natural derived Hyaluronic Acid to replenish moisture continously, leaving skim optimally hydrated, radiant and supple.

The sleeping mask comes in 10ml size, and it is actually too much for one-time usage. You can store the capsule in the fridge too cool it down so you can have a much better experience applying the mask. Same goes to the sheet mask, these capsules are really super convenient as an on-the-go fix. Apart using it as a sleeping mask, you can also apply a thin layer and leave it on for about 15 minutes to rejuvenate your skin.

The sleeping mask has a thicker and slightly creamy texture. After chilling it in the fridge, I used it as a 15 minutes mask. I really like the cooling effect which helps a lot in soothing my skin. However, instead of 15 minutes, the mask dries up just after 7-8 minutes. I guess my skin is really dry and in need of the moisture. If your skin is on the dry side, you might want to consider using it as a sleeping mask or apply a thicker layer, if using as a 15 minutes mask.

The Neutrogena Capsule Sleeping Mask is ONLY available at Watsons at RM 12.90 per capsule.

Personally, I'd both the hydrogel mask and sleeping mask pretty good, but my vote would go to the capsule sleeping mask. Though the pricing can be a bit steep, but I do think the products deliver in terms of results and convenience wise. Unfortunately, both products are sold separately at Guardian and Watsons.
