The world’s first sheet mask range developed specifically for men
Unless you have been living under a rock this past year, you will know that masking is big news for both men and woman. We’ve all seen those videos of that pore-unblocking black mask and the increasing amount of masks available on the market. However, due to the popularity the market is now saturated with various types of masks and sheet masks all claiming to do something different. It’s hard to know which one to choose. Every now and again a brand stands out from the rest. I recently came across these BARBER PRO masks and after trialling them out for myself I thought I would share with you my thoughts!
So firstly who are BARBER PRO? BARBER PRO are a multi-award winning British brand with a focus on innovation in men’s grooming. The BARBER PRO range is the World’s First Sheet Mask Range developed specifically for Men and is made up of 5 different masks.
As I’m 30 in two weeks I thought it would be best to try both the Sheet Mask and Under Eye Mask for there anti-ageing properties, so here it goes:
GENTLEMENS SHEET MASK Rejuvenating & Hydrating with Anti-Ageing Collagen
What it says: ‘This self-foaming mask bubbles to create a micro massage that cleanses the skin of impurities and blackheads. Utilising Activated Charcoal and a rich AHA complex created from Lime, Lemon, Apple, Orange and Grapefruit, this detoxifying mask is also suitable for acne prone skin.’
Does it work? I applied this mask to freshly cleansed dry skin. The first thing I noticed about this mask when taking it out of its packaging was how wet it was. It was a little tricky to unfold, but once unfolded it was easy to place on my face. The eyes, nose and mouth holes fitted perfectly, however it did feel like it was sliding down my face at times. It wasn’t a big deal though, I just changed positions and laid back watching TV as it got to work. When it says that the mask is ‘self-foaming’, they aren’t kidding. A couple of minutes into application and my face was covered in a rich lather. It did tickle at times but I put it down to the bubbles being formed and massaging the skin, it wasn’t unpleasant!
I left it on for around 13 minutes, when I could see the bubbles starting to disappear, before removing it. After washing my face with water my skin looked brighter and really fresh. My skin felt like it had just been deep cleaned and was left feeling hydrated, which is good news for someone with naturally dry skin.
A day later and I’m still feeling impressed with the results. My skin still feels hydrated and there has been no irritation or break outs, so an all round thumbs up from me. Next up…
UNDER EYE MASK with Activated Charcoal & Volcanic Ash
What it says: ‘Hydrogel under eye patch with Acivated Charcoal, Volcanic Ash and Marine Based Collagen combat fine lines, wrinkles and reduce the appearance of dark circles. Natural extracts from Soybean, Aloe Vera & Vitamin E calm and sooth tired, puffy eyes while increasing elasticity and firmness.’
Does it work? Each pouch of the Under Eye Mask contains 3 pairs of disposable strips which peel off a plastic liner. The eye patches are basically a sticker which you apply below each eye around your orbital bone. Unlike the Sheet Face mask, these are mess free which means they are really easy to apply and you can continue your everyday life whilst they are in situ. They are also super comfortable so you won’t even know they’re there after a few minutes. After 10 minutes or so I did start to feel a warming sensation where they were applied. After the recommended 30 minutes, I removed the patches.
The skin around my eyes felt a lot tighter and the warming feeling stayed for the next hour or so, so it must have been doing something. It will be interesting to see if there are any noticeable differences after using all 3 pairs.
I purchased both masks from a salon wholesalers but you can shop the full range online here.
Have you tried any of the BARBER PRO range? What’s your go to mask at the moment?
