ZMask: Anti-Wrinkle Face and Eye Masks

Occasionally, I get opportunities to review items that I think my readers would enjoy and would like to learn about. I have been focusing quite a bit on skin care in my own, personal life over the past year as I’m wanting to do what I can to keep my lovely, smooth complexion. Even though that’s said wryly, I am having a birthday this month and truthfully, my peak has already past. Now I’m just holding back the signs of time as best as I can afford.

Over the past 6 weeks, I have been testing out ZMask. I had never heard of this product before but with buzz phrases like:

  • Made with natural seaweed extracts
  • Paraben-, fragrance-, and mineral oil-free
  • Clinically proven to reduce wrinkles, Β smooth skin, and improve skin elasticity

I was very interested…

The box has a lot of info on it itself…

I couldn’t find a number at to a total number of people that gave these percentages however, it’s a starting place for me to look for those results, hopefully, myself.

This is the Complete ZMask System…

This has 12 full face masks, 12 under eye masks and a bottle of the Instant Youth Potion.

The brochure that came in the kit had lots of information about the ingredients of the products but, it didn’t have any info on how or when to wear the Instant Youth Potion. I’ll speak more on that in a moment.

Even though the instructions state that the masks can be used up to 3 times a week, I did one mask per week along with using the eye masks later on that same week. Don’t be scared, it’s just me working on my wrinkles!…

I have used paper masks in the past and I think they are really neat. They are not messy like liquid masks. One week I did this while I was in the middle of experiencing a migraine. I don’t know what possessed me to do this with a headache but the cooling sensation of the mask felt really good! I will have to remember this!

Each mask has instructions on it on how to use it but really, it’s a no-brainer. Here’s for the full mask…

And, for the eye masks…

The masks do not become dry. They stay moist during the time you have them on. Once the time is up, you just peel off the paper mask, throw it away and gently rub in the residue. Here’s what I thought about the residue; it was cooling, as I mentioned. Once I rubbed it in and it dried, my skin was so smooth. It did feel a bit tight which was more of a plumped up feeling rather than a dried skin tight feeling. I did follow up a few times with the Instant Youth Potion…

The potion didn’t lessen the tight sensation. It didn’t really add to it but I figured out, on my own, that the potion is meant to plump up the skin as well. So, in retrospect, I would use the potion as part of my morning skin ritual. I did this for 4 days straight and I found that I didn’t care for that tightening sensation. Mostly, I believe that I am not accustomed to that sensation.

I will say that even with the skin-tightening, I visibly saw that my skin was smoother. After each type of mask, my crow’s feet wrinkles around my eyes was lessened. I didn’t notice any changes with the wrinkles I have on my forehead.

My box of masks doesn’t look like the box advertised on the ZMask website. I notice from the copyright date, 2010, that maybe I received an older product. Also, my box calls the product ‘Zephyranthe’. I suspect they renamed it ZMask just because it’s easier to remember and customers relate better to brands they can pronounce.

Overall, I found the masks to be soothing to my psyche as well as to my skin. There wasn’t a detectable odor, I didn’t get any irritation and my skin did feel hydrated and nourished.

Have you heard of ZMask before? Do you prefer paper masks over liquids?

    I prefer paper masks myself, and usually buy them from Korea. Sounds like your skin really liked this one, if it reduced the appearance of crow’s feet.

  • Noelle

    Paper masks are so scary looking but I like the sound of this one!

    • I usually don’t even let my husband look at me while I am doing a mask. But, he does get a kick out of seeing me like that.

  • Ha ha ha… I love the paper mask! A bit scary but they usually work so well. I have never heard of this brand. It sounds amazing and your skin loved it πŸ™‚

    • It does look scary. I get a laugh.

  • BeautyJudy

    This sounds really nice, never heard of it but want to check it out!

    • t’s worth a look if you don’t mind the $200 price.

  • erikatheicyone

    I haven’t tried this brand but I love sheet masks. They look freaky in the mirror but they are so effective. πŸ˜€

    • Maybe someone should make them into designs and patterns. Now that could be fun. Like Sugar Skulls!

  • I’ve never heard of this brand. I have a similar looking paper mask at home that I need to try.

    • Paper masks are less messy, I think.

  • These sound nice!

  • Hehe, I love mask pictures!

    • Hey! Are you laughing at me!!!

  • Lol I love seeing pictures of people with face masks on πŸ˜› They sure do look silly but they seem to work like a charm

    • I can look silly without the mask but it does make it easier. Hee hee!

  • I’ve never tried a paper mask before. It sounds like it lives up to its claims on tightening the skin.

  • Nidia Doherty

    I’ve never used a paper masque before. You rub it in after, not wash it off? How different!

    • Yep. That’s right. It doesn’t seem as odd as it sounds when you do it. I thought I’d want to wash it right off but because it felt soothing, it was just find to allow it to soak in.

  • I have this set too. I haven’t opened it up yet! Thanks for reminding me! I love sheet masks! They are my favorite

    • I look forward to hearing what you think about it. πŸ™‚

  • Paper masks are scary, yet utterly fascinating. If you want to scare a young child and refresh your skin at the same time, there’s really nothing better!

    • I tried to see if I could rile my cats but they didn’t even care. LOL

  • I cannot event attempt to pronounce that brand/product. But I do prefer sheet masks over any other kind. I’m lazy.
