BENTON GOODBYE REDNESS CENTELLA MASK REVIEW
In today’s Benton Goodbye Redness Centella Mask review we’re seeing whether it lives up to its redness-reducing claims.
WHAT IS IT?
It’s a sheet mask made of eco-friendly “S-Cell”. This is a cellulose-based sheet, which comes in a sturdy 23g packet.
Following from the success of its iconic Snail Bee High Content Mask, which sells like hotcakes in Australia, in 2018 Benton released two additional sheet masks. These are the Aloe Soothing Mask Pack and Goodbye Redness Centella Mask Pack.
We previously put the new Aloe Mask to the test, so this time we road tested the Centella mask. We want to see whether it lives up to its claims of banishing redness and irritation in damaged skin!
WHAT DOES IT CLAIM TO DO?
Benton claims that Goodbye Redness Centella Mask Pack “soothes and protects skin”, “hydrates and nourishes” and is made on a “healthy recipe that’s free from harmful chemicals”.
WHAT’S IN IT?
The full ingredients list for Goodbye Redness Mask is:
“Centella Asiatica Leaf Water, Aqua, Glycerin, Pentylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Centella Asiatica Extract, Sodium Gluconate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Propanediol, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Asiatic acid, Madecassic Acid, Asiaticoside, Madecassoside, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Xanthan Gum, Cellulose Gum, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hydrogenated Phosphatidylcholine, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sucrose Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol”
The star ingredients – Centella Asiatica Extract and Leaf Water are contained in 45% of the formula, replacing regular water. These plant extracts have been used in Asian beauty for centuries, and are also known as “cica” or “tiger’s grass”. They are famed for their ability to support damaged skin. Both are having a moment in Asian beauty, found in everything from Dr Jart+’s Cicapair Creams to serums and more.
Another great addition in the formula is Madecassoside, an enzyme found in Centella Asiatica. It soothes, hydrates and nourishes skin.
The humectant in the formula to hydrate skin is Sodium Hyaluronate. This is a water-binding ingredient with molecules smaller than Hyaluronic Acid, which allows it to penetrate deeper into the skin and bind water to it.
The formula is helpfully free from volatile alcohols, parabens and silicon.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
Like most Korean face masks, Benton Goodbye Redness Centella Mask Pack is best applied to skin that has been cleansed and toned. If you use an essence, pop this on first before you mask as well.
The mask is designed to be used for 10 to 20 minutes. It’s best to stick to this time frame to get the most out of your mask because f you leave it on for more than that, you risk actually drawing moisture away from the face, which isn’t ideal.
This mask adheres beautifully to the face, with a decent fit. It also comes with a nice amount of essence. We can’t stand masks that come with an annoying amount that’s impractical to use or dripping everywhere. Thankfully, this one has just the right amount of essence for one face and one mask.
If your skin is really irritated, red or angry, try popping the mask in the fridge first because it acts like a cold pack. This helps soothe skin even more.
Although you’ll see instant calming results after using the mask once, for best results, aim to use it 3 to 4 times a week.
WHAT RESULTS WILL YOU NOTICE?
This mask is perfect if you’re suffering from redness, excessive oiliness and damaged or sensitive skin. It will soothe the irritation, reduce inflammation and balance your oil and moisture levels.
It isn’t the world’s most hydrating mask, so we wouldn’t recommend it for dry skin types that are looking to boost moisture. Instead, it’s specifically formulated for oily, acne prone and sensitive skin types. It’s billed as a mask to soothe sensitivities, and it does what it says on the packet.
WHO SHOULD USE IT?
- People with fungal acne – the ingredients are all OK for you.
- People with excessively oily skin – the mask will help balance your oil levels.
- Anyone with irritated, red and blemished skin – this mask will actively soothe your skin.
- Those who exclusively use cruelty-free products – as with all Benton products, this one is certified cruelty-free by PETA.
- Anyone allergic to alcohol in their skincare products – this product doesn’t contain any unstable alcohols, so is suitable for people who react to them.
- Anyone that needs to stick to oil-free skincare products – this formula contains no oils.
