Recently Depology sent over a box of products for me to try out for the purpose of review. Among them were the Depology Derma Face Sculpting Masks. These are masks designed specifically for your lower jaw line. According to the product page…
The Dēpology Sculpting Mask is infused with essential ingredients to tone and firm your chin, jowl and jawline. Designed with a soft yet firm textured cloth, this mask can be worn whilst getting ready in the morning.Depology
And so I have been wearing them every other day, which is the recommended use. And this is the last mask in the pack so I thought it would be the perfect time to go over the experience.
First there is the mask itself. It is as the description suggests, a soft, yet firm textured cloth. It comes with a backing on it and when the backing is peeled off, the cloth has a very sticky side. While you do have to watch out for the mask sticking to itself, it is easy to peel off skin and hair. So if you happen to get little bits of hair caught in the mask, it isn’t going to rip the hair out or leave sticky goo in your hair.
This is actually important because you are using this in the morning before work and you don’t want to be trying to get something out out your hair, and because to wear the mask it does need to be looped over the ears where it will almost always come in contact with hair.
while the mask will stick to itself, it is easy to pull apart. And the stickiness keeps it in place on the skin. This is a mask for you lower jaw and it would be pointless if the mask didn’t stick to your lower jaw. any sagging and the mask is not touching the skin and therefore useless.
There was no sagging. I wore the mask for thirty minutes each use and had no issues with it sagging. It fit snuggly, yet comfortably and stayed exactly where I put it. I’ll admit, the first few time I wore the mask I did feel a little silly, but I got over it with each use.
there is no scent to this mask at all. So if you are sensitive to scent you are all good. The full ingredients list is fairly short.
Full Ingredients: Water, Algae (Seaweed) Extract, Glycerin, Anthocyanins, Sodium Polyacrylate, Tocopherol (Vitamin E).
The water is in the mix because the mask is hydrating your skin so the moisture has to come from somewhere. It is better to come from the product than your skin. Seaweed also helps to hydrate the skin and can also help remove dead skin cells so your skin looks brighter. Glycerin is also a humectant, which means it draws moisture from the air and into the skin so it too is there for hydration. Anthocyanins are generally thought to be antioxidant and anti inflammatory. Sodium Polyacrylate is a synthetic polymer that helps stabilize everything and Tocopherol (Vitamin E) is a fat soluble anti oxidant that can help protect the skin from free radicals.
And that is the sum total of the ingredients. It is a combination of things that is designed to help hydrate and protect the skin. The band itself gives you some lifting time and I think over time would show some pretty decent results, a but like remembering to use your Gua Sha each day and seeing results from the consistent lifting.
In the pictures you can see my face before I started the mask and when I took the last mask off. I’ll grant you there is not a lot of difference, but there are some small changes. I did use the masks for a relatively short time. While there are some small changes, I expect that if I were to continue using these Depology Derma Face Sculpting Masks for an extended period of time, like a month or more, the effects would become much more noticeable. Like all skin care it requires repeated and consistent use.
So the end result of this trial is to ask if i would be willing to try more of these masks, using them more often. The answer is yes. I know there is nothing harmful in them, I rather enjoyed using them actually once I got used to them and I have seen some small changes in my skin and jawline since using them. I think these Depology Derma Face Sculpting Masks are well worth giving a try.
