I’m always tempted to try hydrogel style masks because they seem so cool but if you read over my reviews you’ll notice I usually end up slamming their minor flaws because well… if they are going to cost that much I want them to be amazing. The Manyo Factory Galactomycyces 10x Wrap (referred to reform here on as Manyo Mask for the sake of sanity,) is one of the masks that changed my mind. It’s actually tied for favorite hydrogel ever and the only reason for the tie is that I like both brands for different reasons. Today I’m going to focus on the Manyo Mask, Why I love it, Why you might love it too, and all that great stuff.
This mask first came to me as a freebie in an order I placed. The packaging is simple. I like brightening masks but after some disappointing hydro gel and fancy brightening mask experiences I was really ready to just stick with my Beauty Diary and My Scheming to brighten. I had found one hydrogel love (reviews coming I swear!) That made this mask low priority.
The back doesn’t have an English. I totally understand it is not an American product but being able to easily scan the list right from the package helps me find things that peak my interest. I ended up trying this mask on a whim because I had it on hand. I expected nothing. I have never been so glad to be wrong.
Ingredients: um… google translate gave me this…Galactosidase Mrs. (probably Galacotmyces) fermentation filtrate, aloe vera leaf extract, Witch Hazel Extract, Chamomile kkotsu, cypress, number of plum, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Carrageenan, birds (algae according to CODSNA) oligosaccharides, sodium hyaluronidase as Nate (I don’t know), kaereop bean gum (possible Ceratonia Siliqua Gum), rosemary leaves extract, gold extract, mung bean extract, jojoba seed oil, Centella asiatica extract, guar gum, xanthan gum, chamomile flower extract, licorice extract, green tea extract, No. muscle extract (again no idea), lavender oil, 1,2-hexane diol, potassium chloride, glucose, second linden fruit extract, pasqueflower extract, ground near extract, caprylic hydroxyl samik acid, caprylic rilgeul glycol, glyceryl Leela right rate, wormwood extract, Houttuynia cordata extract, citrus extract, Trojan polron, oregano leaf extract, perilla oil, eucalyptus leaf oil
So here’s what COSDNA The flags were chamomile, Butylene glycol, and Jojoba seed oil.
Things I found exciting:
- Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate
- Licorice Root extract
- green tea extract
- perilla oil
- Jojoba seed oil (hey its a trigger for some but my skin likes it!
Purpose: To hydrate, smooth, and even skin tone.
How to use?
I loved this one enough for step by step pictures.
First you take it out of the package. Be gentle because it is a thin gel mask but rest assured that it’s pretty strong. As long as you aren’t ripping it out of the package you should be fine. I am a notorious mask ripper and I’ve only torn one of the (uh… possibly almost 20 or so,) of these masks that I have used. Then you put it on!
Apply the top first like in this photo. See how smooth it is on my face. Say Ohhh and Ahh everyone!
See how thin it looks? It’s almost invisible aside from the few folds of excess! The pattern you see is actually an imprint from the plastic backing. There is no weird mesh inside like some hydrogel masks that make them itchy as they dry. This is 100% soft smooth goo!
This is the mask around 45 minutes in. You can see that it’s easily staying on my face and still has some life left in it.
My Rating: 5/5 Have already repurchased and I’m sad to be out. Never want to be without these on hand. I like them for relaxing at night and giving a next day glow, or even in the morning to prep for makeup and drying sunscreen on extra dry days. LOVE!
1- I want both my money and the time I spent using this product back. It should never be used and if I encounter another in my collection it goes to the trash bin.
2- The product is nothing special but not horrible. I would use it again or give it away if I got it as a free sample.
3-The product is nice enough but I would not repurchase because I have many better options. May be better suited for others
4-I really like this and would likely repurchase if I do not find something better.
5-I love this product and it has become a staple in my collection.
So now you know what the numbers mean!
Whitening means brightening so there is no skin bleach here. I love masks that brighten because sleeping and eating a balanced diet are not my strong points. When I get compliments on how healthy I look I know I have done something right!
