Ending October with another sheetmask review. As the season gets a little colder approaching the ‘ber’ months with all the festivities, why not give our skin some little extra hydration will some sheet masks. Purchased mine at Daiso for $1.50 each . They had other varieties of masks that came in different colors namely; Aloe, Cucumber, Jelly, Collagen, Green Tea and Royal Jelly.
Royal Jelly Essence Mask by Santee
So what is Royal Jelly?
Royal jelly is a thick and paste like substance secreted by working honeybees to feed and nurture Queen bees. This contains high concentrations of many nutrients that are beneficial to humans. Primary components of Royal Jelly are major proteins including all the amino acids. Amino acids are a component of collagen, which keeps the skin firm.
In a nutshell, Royal Jelly’s skin benefits are for anti-ageing due to the collagen boost needed by our skin to promote tissue repair along with anti oxidants, flavonoids, hormones, enzymes and other skin nutrient necessities for would healing and cell renewal.

Used at night after my cleanse, tone then moisturized with aloe vera gel. I applied this mask to lock in my skin’s moisture. Winter is coming and my oily combination skin started becoming dry and “flakey”. The mask contained “Royal Jelly Extract” , jojoba seed oil (anti ageing skin bebefits) and witch hazel (calm irritated skin and remove excess sebum).
Skintype: Oily/combo & sensitive. Currently with dry patches on the sides of my nose and some on the cheek area.
Essence: Clear and lightweight jelly type in texture. Dried to a slightly tacky finish and took about 10 mins to completely dry after using the mask.
Mask: Material was soft and cotton textured. Soaked in essence. It fit my face perfectly even though there was just a few cutting lines noted on the mask. Specifically on the jaw area.
My skin after: Left it on for 20 minutes. The essence dried up quickly and it only took me about 20 mins to sit on my skin as the mask was loosing it’s adherence onto my face especially on the chin and nose area. After using it, my skin felt so moisturized, plum and supple. After leaving the essence to partially dry, I noticed some of my inflammed bumps decreased in size. My skin felt soft and smooth too with all the dry patches gone.
Effectiveness– It moisturized, made my skin soft, plump and supple. Like most sheet masks.
Packaging– Okay, the color helped in differentiating the masks. Yellow was my fave color out of the bunch.
Price– Very affordable at $1.50
Availability– Purchased mine at my local DAISO.
