Masking – Borntree Natto Gum Mask

This mask from Borntree contains Natto Gum which is supposed to be good for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, improving elasticity and moisturizing. It’s basically one of those Asian super ingredients.

If you don’t know Natto it’s actually a Japanese food of fermented soy beans. They way they prepare and ferment it leads to a very sticky, gooey food that apparently smells quite bad.

The packaging on this mask is simple but it looks really nice. I like the mint color and it has the Borntree bird logo on it.

Luckily this mask does not smell bad as such (I was prepared for a funky smell) but it does have a strong flowery sweet perfume scent. I have used this one before but I must have forgotten about the smell so it obviously was not traumatizing or anything.

The actual mask is a thin cotton sheet that comes soaked in essence. The essence stayed on the mask and there was very little left in the packet. It was quite wet feeling but nothing out of the ordinary. I think I was expecting it to be more gooey. It unfolded pretty easy and I didn’t have any issues getting it on.

The fit was actually one of the better ones. Definitely a good match for my face shape. The essence pooled a bit at the chin like these wet ones tend to do but it didn’t run down. I always hate it when they run down my neck even though it’s probably good for the skin on my neck I just hate the feeling.

I left this on for about 20 minutes and after I took it off my face felt nice and hydrated. So overall not a bad one. The only thing I didn’t care for was the smell and it wasn’t bad just a little strong.
