All the companies are after manufacturing sheet masks. And today we will discuss sheet masks by Nykaa. And I have the variant Rice + Camellia. Total 21 different variants are available in this category of sheet masks. Sheets masks are really needed? Or it’s just the marketing gimmicks by the company? Let’s discuss this in detail.
Claims of Nykaa Skin Secrets Rice + Camellia Sheet Mask:
On the front side of the packaging, they have mentioned: “Camellia” and claims they have mentioned “Camelia”. High in mineral content and a garage of nutrients, rice extracts balance the sebum generation and impart a natural glow to give a brightened skin. Camellia seed oil extract help to improve the elasticity of the skin and impart intense nourishment. A combination of these potent ingredients gives flawless, radiant skin.
Price of Nykaa Sheet Mask:
Rs. 100/- for 1-time use 1 no. sheet mask. The contents are 20 ml. This sheet mask I got as a birthday month gift from Nykaa. Nykaa gives a free gift if you order anything in your birthday month. Previously I got beautiful baby pink and bling pouches from Nykaa. This year it was a sheet mask.
Nykaa Sheet Mask Ingredients:
The first ingredient being water. We all know the benefits of water for our skin.
Di propylene glycol is rinsing off exfoliant that is used to resurface the skin. it is used to diminish wrinkles and fine lines. It is used to smooth out bumpy skin. Skin brightening agent and is also used to unclog pores.
Glycerin is a moisturizing agent. It also pulls moisture from deep layers of the skin to the outer layers of skin. it keeps our skin hydrated.
Alcohol, they have just mentioned alcohol. The brand did not mention whether it is a certain derivative of alcohol that is used as a stabilizer or not. But alcohol is bad for the skin. Alcohols rip off the moisture from the skin, making the skin dry and dehydrated.
Betaine primary work is to handle skin hydration.
Butylene Glycol is the safest derivative of alcohol. it does not dry out your skin. it provides a silky smooth texture to the skin.
Paeonia suffruticosa root extract helps to boost skin clarity. it has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
PEG-60 hydrogenated Castor oil: According to the study all PEG compounds and their derivatives are not considered safe for the skin. Also depends upon the concentration used.
Centella Asiatica extract helps in reducing the signs of aging. It also makes the skin firm.
Rice extract helps in the renewal of skin pigment. It contains Vitamin E which nourishes the skin and keeps the skin soft and supple.
How to use a face sheet mask:
After cleansing your face open the sheet mask and apply it to your face. Apply it for 10-15 minutes. I always keep the mask on the higher side for 15 minutes and then remove the mask. there is a lot of serum let in the packet, apply the serum until fully absorbed.
What is my opinion about Nykaa Skin Secrets Rice + Camellia Sheet Mask?
I had purchased 2 sheet masks 2 or 3 years ago with my own money from some other brand. Those did not work give any wow results so from that time I decided I would not buy any sheet masks. I got this free gift from Nykaa so I was waiting for an occasion to try on the mask.
Initially, when you apply the mask you get a nice cooling sensation. I guess that is due to the presence of alcohol. I felt nice and relaxed with the mask on. This variant of sheet mask claims to give a natural glow and brighten the skin. But that did not happen to me. it did not give any extraordinary results. The best part is you feel relaxed. Also, it is cruelty-free.
If you spend money then I feel the product should be worth it. Else it is a waste. Thankfully I got this as a free gift from Nykaa. Else waste of money, on top of that plastic waste. Sheet masks are often non-biodegradable and/or recyclable. I am not sure of this one.
- It gave a nice cooling effect.
- Felt relaxed after applying the mask.
- This sheet mask contains alcohol, PEG, and Fragrance that are not considered safe for the skin.
- Expensive. It is just one-time use. Rs. 100/- gone in the dustbin in 15 minutes.
- Even after using the product of Rs. 100 it did not deliver any results.
- Not true to its claim of imparting glow and brightening effect.
I am not a big fan of sheet masks. Because I feel the money is gone in just 1 use. Personally, I wouldn’t buy sheet masks but I am happy to receive them as gifts and review them. I would not recommend this Rice and Camellia variant of Nykaa sheet mask.
