If you think I look ridiculous, it’s for a good reason. For beauty’s sake. Listen, Mother Nature isn’t kind to many of us. I still consider myself a spring motherfreakin’ chicken, but gravity is doing its best to drag me down. I won’t stand for that malarky! So instead of surgery, I’m opting for this?Face Shop Modeling Patch Sharp Face?Mask. Why does it only cover a portion of my face? Ah yes, very good question. This contraption is intended sharpen your jaw line, but I like to think that it will also fight a condition called Turkey Neck. That’s when your chin and your neck start to sag into one lump of hanging flesh. You often see this on middle aged and older women, but the truth is, the skin starts falling like right now. Instead of waiting on time to take its toll, I’m fighting back! Perfectly chiseled chin, here I come.
I picked up this mask from my fave Korean beauty spot,?The Face Shop. I asked the sales associate about it and she said “My mom swears by this stuff.” That’s enough for me to give it a try. Here’s what this baby looks like. It’s a gel mask that contains corn silk, green tea, and coffee seed extracts, along with hydrolyzed collagen. These ingredients fight antioxidants and the visual signs of aging. When applying the mask, you should stretch it from the center, slowly smoothe upwards, and wrap around your ears.
The trick to this actually working requires face yoga. Yes, that’s right face yoga. Pose number 1: Use your middle and ring finger to stretch your jawline toward your ears. Repeat on other side. Pose number 2: Put the palms of your hands near the point of your chin. Push each side up to stretch your chin. Do both of these yoga poses while applying the mask. Remove after 15 to 20 minutes.
Once I took the mask off, I couldn’t really see a difference. It’s not like my chin came to a perfect point or anything. But I will say that I felt a change. While the mask was on, I could feel the ingredients tingling on my skin and working their magic. To be honest, the face yoga really did help. I think just like with any other product, you’ll see a change with prolonged use. If someone’s momma swears by this stuff and she’s in her 60s and still looks good, I’m inclined to think it really does the job. Take that turkey neck! Now if only I could get an entire Korean body mask that will lift and firm. Is that too much to ask for?
