Review: Chiara Ambra Hydrogel Firming Face & Eye Mask

//PR SAMPLE / BEAUTY / SKINCARE //

Lace always give me that feeling of luxury and mystery! I love lace on clothes, since it makes them look more feminine and noble. But lace is not only limited to clothes and cloth in general, but we can also enjoy its beauty in our skincare. One example are the Chiara Ambra Hydrogel Firming Face & Eye Masks, which were provided to me for reviewing purpose by Chiara Ambra.

Chiara Ambra Hydrogel Firming

Chiara Ambra is a German skincare company, that is influenced by the new skincare trends. They have a nice range of sheet masks by now, like animal print sheet masks, bubble masks, cotton sheet masks and masks for lips, hand and feet. They also offer other skincare products for your face and body though. I want to show you their Hydrogel Firming Face and Eye Mask here:

Chiara Ambra Hydrogel Firming Face Mask

This Hydrogel firming sheet mask containing green tea and hyaluronic acid is providing intensive moisture to the skin and thereby improves the skin’s elasticity. The mask is divided into two parts, one for the upper and one for the lower part of the face. Both hydrogel sheets are folded in a clear plastic separating foil and additionally have a black plastic foil folded separately.

The sheet mask comes in a sachet with descriptions in English, German, and French on the backside. Other important ingredients to mention, apart from hyaluronic acid and green tea, are red algae, soy bean, urea and allantonin. The ingredient list is also stated on the sachet:

You can also check for the ingredients on Skincarisma. There are some irritants regarding sensitive skintypes it seems, like citric acid, tataric acid, glycolic acid, and it also contains fragrance. I personally didn’t experience any irritations, but my skin is mostly dry and not too sensitive either. It was very happy about the many moisturizing ingredients instead.

When you remove the plastic layers you will be left with the hydrogel sheet with a beautiful lace pattern imbedded into it. Also there are golden shimmer particles inside the hydrogel.It really looks beautiful and luxurious.

Since it is made from two parts it also fits very nicely, and surprisingly it also has a very good adherence. Usually, I have problems with hydrogel sheet masks sliding of my face, but this one stayed perfectly fine during the 15 minutes I used it.

I rarely post a full-face sheet mask picture on my blog, but the lace pattern is so beautiful I had to share it.

The mask really makes the skin feel hydrated and cared for after the time I used it. Instead of removing the serum with a tissue as recommended I left it on my skin to absorb. I also used the left-over essence in the sachet on my neck and arms. I was very happy with the mask and its moisturizing properties. However, the essence does leave a tackiness on the skin. It is not a very unpleasant stickiness though, but it also doesn’t absorb trackless.

Chiara Ambra Hydrogel Firming Eye Mask

This Hydrogel Firming Eye Mask can be seen as the little sister of the face mask. These pads are designed for the under-eye area and will help to make your eyes look less tired and cool them down.

The ingredients of the Hydrogel Firming Eye Mask are pretty much the same as for the face mask. Instead of green tea it contains grape seed extract though. It still also contains hyaluronic acid, red algae, soy bean, urea and allantonin. The ingredient list is also stated on the sachet:

Hydrogel Lace: WaterGlycerinButylene GlycolCeratonia Siliqua GumSucrose,Chondrus Crispus PowderCellulose Gum, 1, 2-HexanediolAgarXanthan GumAllantoin,Disodium EdtaMicaTriethoxycaprylylsilane,Sodium HydroxideHydroxyacetophenone,C12-13 Pareth-9ParfumCi 77891Ci 77491.

As for the face mask also here there are some ingredients that people with sensitive skin should be aware of, namely citric acid, tataric acid, glycolic acid and fragrance. Check out the full ingredients on Skincarisma.

The Chiara Ambra Hydrogel Firming Eye Mask is a white laced hydrogel pad, in contrast to the black laced face mask. Also here the lace pattern is really nicely made and embedded inside the hydrogel. You will also discover sparkles of shimmer gold particles inside.

Also here, the hydrogel really clings nicely to the skin and doesn’t slide around or fall off. I really loved that fact!

It delivers a refreshing and cooling sensation on the skin under your eyes and makes you look more awake after application. The skin also feels moisturized due to all the ingredients inside the serum.

All in all, I’m happy about these hydrogel sheet masks from Chiara Ambra. It was the first time for me to use laced sheet masks and I really like the appearance of these. also, I really was happy that these hydrogels didn’t slip off my face, because usually, that’s my downside about hydrogel masks. Instead they fit very nicely and stayed in place. My only downside would be the irritants for senstive skintypes. I can understand why glycolic acid was included, especially with regard to its smoothing properties, but I could think of natural fragrance instead of perfume.
