Pink Cactus Knit Mask
REVIEW BY Michelle Winter

Sometimes you find amazing beauty products and fall hopelessly in love with them. Which is exactly how I feel about Neogen’s Pink Cactus Liftmax Knit Mask and their Code 9 Gold Black Caviar Essence & Gold Tox Tightening Pack Kit. Oh, be still my beating heart.

Neogen is a Korean beauty brand that I adore. Their Code 9 White Sparking Cream is one of my favourite moisturisers and their sheet masks are divine. 

What’s so good about the mask and kit, I hear you ask? Let’s start with the mask.

Pink Cactus Liftmax Knit Mask, Neogen at Selfridges (UK) and Soko Glam (US), £6.50

Pink Cactus Liftmax Knit Mask1

I adore sheet masks and own over 350 (#sorrynotsorry) so any new additions need to be pretty special to impress me. The Pink Cactus Liftmax Knit Mask is super exciting. It’s a knitted mask and contains pink cactus, a great anti-ageing ingredient.

I was anxious the mask would be too thick but I needn’t have worried. Forget visions of thick knitted jumpers, this mask is made from 100% pure knitted cotton for an incredibly comfortable and luxurious fit.

To apply, the handle part of the mask must be on the left hand side with the mask pulled tightly across. The suggested time to wear it is 10-20 minutes but I found this so relaxing that I fell asleep for about 30-45 minutes with it still on my face.

Panic not, fellow sheet mask lovers. I know it’s often a case of playing sheet mask Russian roulette leaving masks on for longer than the recommended time but my skin was still so moisturised after removing it. Very impressed!

The neck is often overlooked in beauty regimes (something I’m sometimes guilty of) and I’m thrilled this mask also includes a neck part. I could definitely feel a cooling and tightening effect while wearing it.

The dewy glow I had afterwards was UNREAL. I’m talking about a glow to rival Gong Yoo and Lee Dong-Wook. Which makes sense considering the mask is soaked in 60ml of essence. I used the extra essence from the packet underneath my moisturiser. I hate to see waste!

Opuntia ficus-indica seed (cactus seed) oil helps deliver deep hydration to the skin and tighten pores. It’s also great for preventing wrinkles and maintaining a youthful appearance alongside vitamin C and beta-carotene. Another key ingredient is opuntia cochenillifera (prickly pear cactus), famous for its anti-ageing and moisturising benefits.

 Niacinamide promotes a brighter complexion and reduces redness (take that, mild rosacea). Other ingredients include moisturising hyaluronic acid and soothing rosa damascena extract to help calm skin with its anti-inflammatory properties. Persea gratissima (avocado) oil further boosts dry skin and shields it from UV damage. Jania rubens algae encourages skin protection and healthy skin metabolism.

This kit is suitable for all skin types too. Admittedly, this mask is on the pricier side but I’m so impressed I already want to buy more.

Here’s the secret to antioxidant up your skincare routine!

Antioxidants help fight the cell damages that naturally occur from oxidation, which eventually turn into free radicals. Free radicals eventually start a chain reaction of damages to more cells which affect both our body and skin health. Although you can find anti-oxidants in a variety of different natural ingredients like fruits and vegetables, some specific fruits and vegetables further flaunt higher levels and powerful antioxidant content.

Let’s face it. Staying in for a long period of time sounds easy at the beginning but can be challenging. During quarantine we already cleaned our full apartment twice, re-organized the kitchen, the closet and tried all of those recipes we always wanted to. But now it’s time to focus on ourselves and bless our skin with a little - well deserved - me time.

Transitional Weather Scaries? Add some H2 to your routine ASAP!

I’ve said it before: my skin is not only combo but also very sensitive, and rosacea + acne prone… yeah, yeah, someone decided to add a little bit of everything during the DNA distribution. For many years I just catalogued my skin is oily, because I used to think that was my one and only skin concern and that every other problem was a consequence of the oiliness. Oh, how wrong I was.
