The £40 Sheet Mask Duo – Is It Really Worth It?

111Skin Celestial Black Diamond Lifting And Firming Mask Review

When I saw the price of this two-piece sheet mask system, revealing it was £40, I had high hopes. Very high hopes. But what’s the truth – was it good enough to justify a small fortune for a single use product? Let’s see…

I’m not shy about spending on beauty products. To me, if something is going to work well then I’d happily pay whatever I could afford to buy it. Especially in skincare because I’m so particular about what I want and need in my regime. Plus I need to know I’ve got the best quality products for my skin and I’ve always thought of skincare as an investment and not a frivolous spend. So I’m never put off by a price – if it’s on the high side I may take a little longer to physically purchase it – a gal’s gotta save right? But ultimately for me, price isn’t something that would necessarily put something out of my reach. Unless it’s massively extreme of course (which is also completely dependant on your personal definition of ‘extreme’.)

As someone who loves a good face mask, I always get excited when a new one arrives for me to try. Perks of the job, right? So when I received the 111Skin Celestial Black Diamond Lifting And Firming Mask I got super excited because 111Skin are a top level skincare brand that aren’t widely available. They’re used in the top Harley Street Cosmetic Surgery and have been developed by a leading Cosmetic surgeon – so you know they’re reliable and coming from a strong place of production.

The 111Skin Celestial Black Diamond Lifting And Firming Mask comes in two packets – the first is for your face (duh) and is in two parts. One for the mouth and lower face and the other for the top. You also get a separate pack which contains the matching pieces for the neck and decollete area. So effectively it’s a sheet mask for the whole top part of you. Which I really like.

Containing key ingredients to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, I was desperate to try this and as soon as I took these pictures, the mask was on my face quicker than you can imagine! It contains collagen in the bottom section of the face duo to boost the way skin appears and give it some elasticity. While the neck and decollete mask contains a skin firming ingredient that’s supposed to visually lift the area.

At £40 for the set, it’s pricey for a single use product. I’ve not spent that sort of money on a single use face mask before so I was hoping for big things. And with the reputation of 111Skin, I was pretty confident that this would be a good mask.

So, did it work?

Like all face masks, you’re recommend to use it several times per week but for the price I would have to see immediate results to re-purchase. I applied the mask directly to clean, washed skin. I’d cleansed beforehand but nothing more. So my skin was in the optimum position to absorb the treatment. I left it on for a little more than the recommended 20 minutes (a girl’s got to get the most out of her face masks, right?) and then removed it, and rubbed the excess product into the skin.

I noticed the way that my tiny smile lines around the mouth looked, or rather didn’t look. The weren’t showing at all – and considering they’re so new (and tiny) this was a nice surprise. The area looked how it had a few years before the lines had begun to appear at all. And the crows feet around my eyes looked less defined in a very subtle but natural way.

The overall appearance of the skin was relaxed and glowy, like you’d expect after a good pamper session – but I’d achieved it with one product. My skin felt nice, and that feeling isn’t something you can write, it has to be felt. But if you’ve ever had a facial then you’ll know what I mean.

Was it worth it?

£40 for a single use product is a considered purchase for me. I liked the outcome of my 111Skin Celestial Black Diamond Lifting And Firming Mask and I’d love to see what sort of level of outcome I could achieve with regular use of this mask. For now it’s something I’ll save for special occasions, but I wouldn’t be put off buying in the future at all.

    I suppose it’s the same as what you’d pay for a facial so even though it’s pricey, as long as the results are good!


  9. I went into the beginning of this post wondering if I could ever possibly justify spending that much on a facemask – but it clearly does a fabulous job. Maybe when I’ve got a special occasion coming up I’ll splash out! xx

    I’ve become addicted to sheet mask recently. I have a huge collection right now as I just raided my local TKMaxx. I really want to try this but I cant justify the price at the moment. Sounds bloody lovely though.
