I was recently sent some masks to review from a brand that’s new here in the States called Hey! Pinkgo Girl. This brand specializes in masks that cater to everyone’s skin needs: anti-againg, skin brightening, oily skin, moisturizing, and more. With ingredients like white tea, seaweed collagen, black pearl, and Tahitian sea water, these masks are bound to have good effects on the skin.
Take a look at the masks I was sent:
Here are the masks in order from left to right: Herbal Essence Astringent mask (oily skin), Triple HA Seaweed Collagen Moisturizing mask, and Marine Hydration mask.
Because my skin is normal to oily, I started off trying this particular mask first. I have sensitive and acne prone skin as well (so blessed, I know) so I figured this would break me out the least if it indeed didn’t work for my skin. I put this on my face in the morning after I washed my face and left it on for about 20~25 minutes, longer than the suggested 15~20 minutes because it came with an insane amount of essence. When I took the mask off, I patted the rest of the essence onto my skin and it absorbed very quickly. It’s very light, just like a regular essence and left my skin feeling really smooth. Best part is that it didn’t break me out! Woohoo! I really liked this mask and would definitely recommend this to anyone with oily skin that can’t find a proper mask for their skin type.
The second mask is the Triple HA Seaweed Collagen mask. This mask is recommend for every skin type, especially those with dry or aging skin. The serum in this mask is quite light so if you have dry skin, this may not be enough. I would use this more as an addition to your skincare rather than rely on it for deep hydration because it worked really well on my skin and moisturized my skin just enough. It has hyaluronic acid so I used it before my moisturizer and felt my skin retained more moisture. I’d definitely try this one again!
The second mask is the White Tea and Vitamin C mask. If you want brightening properties due to dull skin, this mask will benefit you the most. It also contains lemon which is used by many in DIY masks for skin brightening or scar improvement. I can’t say that I saw a big difference because I only used it twice but my skin did look a bit brighter and felt energized afterwards. I would have to try a whole box of this to determine if it actually brightens the skin significantly so I can’t give a thorough review but I’m willing to try them out since I didn’t break out!
Lastly, here is the Marine Hydration mask. This one is recommended for people with dry and sensitive skin. It contains ingredients like marine collagen, Tahitian sea water, and chamomile. I think this mask was the most moisturizing of them all even though it was still pretty light. I wore this at night and woke up moisturized skin without any redness or pimples so this one is definitely sensitive skin approved!
One of the coolest things about these masks is that some of them come in lace! How cool is that?! This is my first time seeing something like this and I was definitely surprised when I opened them up lol!
The lace ones come with ear holes so they can stay in place while you move around. They’re longer than the other ones because they also cover part of your neck so it gets some mask lovin’ too :)
The regular masks are thin and adhere really well to the skin. I like these better than the really thick kinds because it almost feels like the thicker masks absorb all of the product and leave nothing for your skin to drink up.
Here’s just a picture of me after I wore the mask and added a couple of drops of Argan oil to my skin. I really liked the way it looked :)
Here are some masks that haven’t yet launched in the US but will soon. I will do a separate review on these soon!
Final thoughts: I really loved these masks. I’m the type of person that breaks out if I happen to touch my face on accident so my skin is super sensitive and the fact that I didn’t break out once is almost like a miracle to me. It may seem like I’m just being nice because I was sent these for free but you guys know that I can be a bit too honest when a product isn’t good but this was not the case. I actually already have these bad boys in my Amazon cart right now!
I’m not sure if you noticed a pattern in my mini reviews but these masks are very light. Like I said before, I wouldn’t rely on these for deep hydration because they seem to be more of an essence rather than a serum, like other masks tend to have. These are best as an addition to your regular skincare routine, ideally before your serum and moisturizer and because they’re pretty affordable, you can use these every day! The box comes with 10 and costs anywhere from $12.99 to $13.50.

P.S.: Did you notice something different about me? Maybe not, but today is my birthday. I turn 25! :)
