Product Review: Origins Flower Fusion™ Violet Nourishing Sheet Mask

I've been using masks more frequently the past couple of months to help combat some skin issues. I've tried to incorporate new ones as well as old favorites, and one of the new ones is from the Flower Fusions™ line by Origins.

There are six options, but I chose the Violet Nourishing Mask because menopause is making my skin need more moisture. Of course it is. *eye roll*

These sheet masks are made of 100% bamboo fortified with flower wax (a byproduct of essential oil distillation) that is supposed to be good for moisturizing. Unsurprisingly, this particular mask is scented with violet.

As you know, I'm sensitive to fragrance, so I'm always a little concerned when I see something that indicates there may be added fragrance in a product. But this contains viola odoratea flower/leaf extract rather than some "added fragrance". I'm usually okay when it's a naturally-occuring fragrance or from essential oils. As it turns out, that held true again, and I didn't have any issues with irritation or breakouts. I didn't even notice a scent.

The mask is packaged as most sheet masks are - folded inside a pouch.

I do like that this mask contains oils, caffeine, squalane, arginine, and hyaluronic acid.

I had some issues applying this mask. The "fabric" is a little stiff, so the creases from being folded did not smooth out as I put it on my face. As you can see in the photo below, I also wasn't able to smooth the edges to make the mask fit the contours of my face. If it doesn't touch my skin completely, then how am I supposed to absorb the benefits?

I left it on for 10 minutes as per the instructions, and once removed, my skin did feel soft and plumped. However, as I suspected would happen, the creases in the mask left creases on my face. I guess maybe the skin that was in contact with the mask "plumped", and the skin under the creases didn't, so I had shallow "troughs" in those areas.

So while it wasn't my favorite mask (I still prefer the boscia Tsubaki Oil Hydrogel Mask and the Tony Moly Snail Gel Mask), I might try one of the other versions.

The Flower Fusion masks are available in 6 versions:

  • Orange Radiance-Boosting
  • Rose Hydrating
  • Jasmine Softening
  • Raspberry Refreshing
  • Lavender Soothing
  • Violet Nourishing

Have you tried any of the Flower Fusion masks? What was your experience with them?
