MASK "MONDAY" // Dear Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Sheet Mask


Dear Klairs is continually growing as a brand that I'm loving and enjoying. One product I've been eyeing up for the longest time is the Midnight Blue Calming Cream, but it's just something I've not gotten around to picking up yet. Luckily for me, Dear Klairs released a sheet mask version of the product, which lets me have a little try out to see if it's going to be worth spending the cost on the cream. I was sent these by Wishtrend after taking part in their Cruelty Free Week, however, wasn't obliged to review them. This post however does contain an affiliate link. It's also not a Monday as you can see (I missed a day...oops) so we have a Mask Monday/Tuesday here for you guys.

This mask aims to purify and unclog pores with the use of white willow bark extract, which very gently exfoliates the skin to remove excess sebum. Erythritol (an alcohol sugar) which targets the temperature of the skin to cool it down. 

I recently suffered quite a bad hormonal breakout along my chin that was painful as a constant. So this seemed like the perfect time to give the sheet mask a try to see if it could help combat this issue.

After cleansing, pull out the mask from the pouch and unfold carefully. Evenly place the mask over the entire face, adjust the upper part to the eyes and the lower part to the mouth. After 15-20 minutes, remove the mask and gently pay the remaining essence into the skin. 

Optional: After removing the mask, place the mask onto the neck for a few minutes.

There was a definite scent from the tea tree oil in the mask which is reassuring as it's one of the ingredients I would use if I had a breakout. There was minimal essence remaining in the pouch, which is great as I knew the majority of it was going to remain on the mask itself. It was a relatively thin essence in the mask too, thick enough to cling to cling to the mask and not thin enough so that it just drips everywhere. The cooling effect was nearly immediate and the skin on my face felt cool for a good while after use as well. ideal for when your skin just feels hot and painful when you have a breakout.

As suggested in the instructions, this sheet mask actually comes in two halves, one upper half and one lower. To me, this makes it a lot easier to make sure the mask actually fits to your face better since not all faces are same length and have features in the same positions. I found the mask fit to my face perfectly with very little adjusting necessary. The mask itself also has bamboo charcoal in the actual material itself, making it soft and comfortable to wear.

After using this mask, my skin felt incredibly smooth to touch and nice and plump. The tightness seemed to have been taken away from the spots that I had on my face too. With the redness being greatly reduced. So the mask has done exactly what it claimed to want to do. I think after using this mask, I would definitely go out and try the actual cream form for any future breakouts but also keep a few of these on hand when I just want my whole face to feel a little bit less hot and sore. 

Where to buy // This can be purchased in a set of 10 or 20 from Wishtrend here.
