Yon-Ka Masque No.1

I have always loved discovering new brands, and Yon-Ka is not a brand I have heard much about before. Angelina Jolie, Victoria Beckham, Sienna Miller and Beyonce are all big fans, so I instantly had high expectations! Masque N°1 is a part of the Hydra N°1 range which aims to improve your skins hydration, whilst also fighting signs of aging. Now, I am still quite young so I do not worry too much about anti-aging products just yet, however I do think it is never too early to try and prevent the signs of ageing. Keeping your skin hydrated means a thicker epidermis (the outer layer of your skin) is created and cell renewal is accelerated, therefore preventing wrinkles from forming. Makes sense, right?

Masque N°1 is a gel-cream like mask, with a lovely Jasmine scent including a combination of rose, chamomile and jasmine oils. It claims to increase hydration by 54% after 1 hour of application, and 96% after 8 hours – sounds amazing so far! Apply this to your skin just before bed and leave it to sink in overnight, or leave it on for around 20 minutes then carefully blot it off. You do not need to rinse, just let it do all the work – this really is a no fuss mask!

When first applied there is a slight tingling sensation, however this disappears quickly. I have yet to leave it on for more than 20 minutes, but even so, my skin feels very soft and hydrated the next day. I find the true test is when I apply my make-up, and after applying this mask my make-up honestly applies so much better than usual. It doesn’t look like it is sitting on top of my skin, but more blended into my skin.

Now I know £42 is a lot to pay for a face mask, however I always think that if a product truly works on your skin, and you can afford it, then it is worth the money. I would most definitely recommend picking this up for the winter months, especially when the harsh cold wind is really beginning to dry out your skin. As it is £42 I would use this sparingly, however I find once or twice a week is enough so this will last a relatively long time.

I am very impressed with Yon-Ka as a brand and I cannot wait to try out some more of their products. Have you tried Yon-ka before? If so, what did you think?

  1. Oh wow, the moisturiser I bought from my beautician is Yon-Ka. I had never heard of the brand before, and to be honest, I haven't looked up information on the Internet. I have the Creme 93 and I love it so much! Mine was also very expensive, but it lasts for sooo long as a pea size blob goes a long way!

    Looking forward to try out more Yon-Ka products myself as well :)

  2. This sounds so nice :) I really like products that are aimed at hydrating the skin, particularly now the colder weather is here where we find that our skin needs a boost.

    Lovely packaging too :)

  3. This sounds absolutely gorgeous! I loved the grapefruit moisturiser that I tried from them last year and I'm really keen to try more of their products. With skincare high end really does tend to give you great results, and YonKa is just a lovely lovely brand xx
