I’m very slow with sheet mask reviews. On the one hand, I have so many that I forget to not my impressions while using them and forget about them. On the other hand, it is difficult to write a proper review from using a specific sheet mask only one time. Here is the Swanicoco Super Natural Hydrogel Brightening Mask provided by Swanicoco. I was able to try it a couple of times, and I hope that I can provide a descent opinion about this one.
Swanicoco is a Korean brand that stared off its business by creating naturally fermented soaps. Now, they have a huge range of products including skin care and make up products, but still all the products share the same believe in natural ingredients excluding artificial and chemical components. Swanicoco uses grains, fruits, herbs and oriental medicine materials as raw materials for their fermentation. By fermenting the products they can be much more easily absorbed into the skin, help retaining moisture and improve damaged skin. They state that instead of using purified water like in most existing cosmetics, Swanicoco has replaced the water with ferment filtrate. Additionally, pigments, synthetic perfumes, chemical preservatives, alcohol, mineral oil, paraben and benzophenones have been excluded from their products. Oh, and they are also free from animal testing!
The brand name Swanicoco is derived from the word “swan” and the term “coco”. “Swan” referrs to the elegance and feminine aspects of the bird we probably all know. “Coco” refers to the coconut, representing the natural ingredients. In the logo of the brand you will find the word “natural”, which refers to the brand as being a natural cosmetics brand. There is also a peony blossom in the middle of the logo that stands for richness and splendor.
This hydrogel sheet mask has brightening properties. It contains ingredients like Niacinamide and Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, which have brightening properties. Moreover, it contains ingredients that are hydrating and soothing, like Aloe extract, Peach fruit extract, Glycerin, and Sodium Hyaluronate. You can check for the ingredients on SkinCarisma*.

The hydrogel is torn easily, although it isn’t very thin. It stays on the skin, and doesn’t fall off. But I always have some problems with hydrogels and applying them somehow. Is it only me? The fit depends on the shape of your face. For me it had a nice fit apart from the part for the nose, which was too much. The hydrogel mask has a cooling effect on the skin and feels very refreshing, also when not stored in the fridge. This cooling effect also results in a short-time brightening of the skin. I cannot say if it makes a big difference when used on a regular basis in terms of brightening though.
Currently, I couldn’t find the Swanicoco Super Natural Hydrogel Brightening Mask anywhere. But Swanicoco has also a bunch of other masks and really nice products. You can also find Swanicoco products at Beautytap* (formerly W2Beauty). Check my Coupons & Discount page for a valid coupon to save some bucks, if you decide to buy something from them.
