My First Time using HS Skincare

If you've been following along on my skincare journey, you may know how much I detest some hydrogel masks. Like really really hate them. I've tried so many masks that would slip right off my face or leave me feeling dry as if there wasn't enough serum on the mask itself. I was so very grateful to get a lovely gift from the HS Skincare team that included their 24K Ultra-Lite Gold Hydrogel collection, and I was pleasantly surprised to find hydrogel masks that fit well. 

After taking a look at the ingredients, I liked that the fourth ingredient in the serum is niacinamide. I've been using a niacinamide serum for a while now so I can attest to its effectiveness.  Also known as vitamin B3, niacinamide is a very effective skin-restoring ingredient and can visibly reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, help uneven skin tone, and reduce fine lines. I was also surprised to see that bee venom is another ingredient in the serum. When we think of venom, it doesn't always equate to something good, but bee venom in skin care is actually beneficial. Bee venom is an anaphylactic which means it can temporarily relax your face muscles. Sounds a lot like botox right?! I had no idea that bee venom is a natural alternative to botox that can also improve circulation and creates tighter and smoother skin. 

Aside from effective serum ingredients, I was happy that the HS masks fit well on my face. This hydrogel mask comes in two parts so no matter what your face shape or size, this mask can be customized to fit your needs. The instructions recommend keeping the mask on for 20-30 minutes...but if I'm being honest, I leave sheet masks on for at least an hour (if I'm multitasking and watching something awesome while I'm masking LOL) I liked how the serum stayed on the mask and I was left with smooth and radiant skin. Since there are many nourishing ingredients in this mask I was happy to get the chance to experience this brand for myself. 

There are other products available from HS Skincare too like the eye patches, lip masks, neck patch, and fine line patch. All these masks worked beautifully!
