About Heimish 

Heimish is quite a young brand. The brand's history started in 2016. I'm surprised how much the brand grew in just three years. Right now Heimish offers moisturizers, masks, eye palettes, lip products, eye patches and more. Still, the brand is most known for its cleansing line. Lately, the brand upgraded its cult All Clean Balm and released a Mandarin version.

Heimish Black Tea Mask Pack - Packaging  

I'm a huge fan of black tea, but Heimish Black Tea Mask Pack comes in packaging that reminds me a lot of Moroccan architecture and Islamic geometric patterns. If we look longer at this packaging, the inspiration from Morocco has sense. When I think about Morocco, I think about mint tea typical for this country. I was told that Moroccan mint tea should be drunk on warm days to cool down the temperature. Heimish Black Tea Mask Pack has a similar task - it's supposed to cool down the skin temperature. Inside the box, you can find Heimish Black Tea Mask Pack in a dark brown jar. It has a lid inside, and a spatula is placed right on this lid.

Heimish Black Tea Mask Pack - Texture & Scent  

According to a few stores, Heimish Black Tea Mask Pack is a gel-cream mask. In my opinion, Heimish Black Tea Mask Pack has a very innovative formula since it reminds me of mousse. On the one hand, it's like cleansing balm mixed with cream. I never had a similar texture on my skin, but I enjoy it. I would even say, it reminds me of mashed potatoes, especially when the formula itself has a bit of yellowish shade/ecru shade. The scent is nice, it's not a heavy scent, but it's citrus, florals & tea combined at once.

Water hides in a cosmetic products under names such as Aqua or Eau. It's a solvent, but it's not your regular drinking water. Water in skin care needs to fit some standards. It should be clean and free from minerals, microorganisms or other substances. Usually, water makes up the majority of the content of the product. Propanediol is also known as natural glycol - an alternative to propylene glycol. Propanediol is a solvent with additional moisturizing properties. It makes the product smooth to the touch. It can even improve the effectiveness of active ingredients. Glycerin or Glycerol is a humectant. Its origin can be natural or synthetic - depending on the product. It protects TEWL (transepidermal water loss) and naturally occurs in the skin. It's one of the NMFs - natural moisturizing factors. It's practical in hair care. Glycerin won't clog your skin or irritate it just the opposite - it protects your skin from irritation. Caprylic/​Capric Triglyceride is a combination of coconut oil and glycerin. It's a notable emollient, quite common in skincare. It leaves a protective film on the surface of the epidermis to save your cutis from dehydration. Caprylic/​Capric Triglyceride has a significant role in skin care products - it makes the application process effortless. Some people might experience pore-clogging after using Caprylic/​Capric Triglyceride, but pore-clogging and skin reactions to ingredients are individual. What works for you might not work for someone else. Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Water is a green tea hydrosol. It refreshes, soothes and hydrates the skin. Litchi Chinensis Fruit Extract is a source of vitamin C. It's an antioxidant with mild exfoliating properties. Butylene Glycol is a common ingredient in products. It's not only a solvent. We use butylene glycol because it helps with the penetration of active ingredients, protects products from drying and moisturizes skin and hair. This ingredient can prevent hair loss and make your hair stronger. Aloe is a common ingredient in beauty products. Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract has moisturizing properties. Aloe pulp contains over 95-99% of water. Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract can be helpful after sunburns, sun exposure, acne, and sensitive skin. Centella Asiatica Extract is probably the most popular extract in skincare. It comes under a few names - Asiatic pennywort, tiger grass or Gotu kola. Centella Asiatica's roots are in Ayurveda. This extract is successful because it's a source of triterpene saponins - madecassoside and asiaticoside. Centella Asiatica Extract has anti-inflammatory properties. It speeds up the wound-healing process. You can use it to treat acne since it has soothing and antibacterial properties. It boosts fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin or even helps with hyaluronic acid synthesis. Centella is recommended for rosacea and cellulitis since it helps with blood microcirculation. In hair care, Centella can help with hair growth. Dimethicone is a dry emollient. Some people might find clogging, but it keeps your skin moist and protect it from dehydration. It has a positive effect on the skin barrier by creating occlusion, and it helps with scars. It can also smooth your skin visually. It's also silicone that's why some people like to talk badly about Dimethicone just because of this fact, but there's no reason to be frightened. It gives your skin an occlusive film, but it doesn't suffocate your skin. We need occlusion to prevent water from TEWL (Transepidermal Water Loss) - to keep the skin moist. It protects your hair from dehydration and weather, and it makes it easier to brush your hair. Sodium Polyacrylate Starch is an absorbent, but it also thickens the formula. Olivem 1000 is a combination of Cetearyl Olivate and Sorbitan Olivate. It's a natural emulsifier, and beauty companies use it to create an oil-in-water emulsion. Worth mentioning it's a biodegradable formula. Ammonium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate/​VP Copolymer is a polymer with thickening properties. Coptis Japonica (Japanese Goldthread) Root Extract is an anti-inflammatory ingredient with antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. It's a source of berberine, coptisine and palmatine. Eclipta Prostrata Leaf Extract is a nourishing ingredient. Eclipta Prostrata or False Daisy is a plant used in traditional medicine. Coccinia Indica Fruit Extract or Ivy Gourd is a natural pigment. Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Extract is an extract derived from cocoa seeds. It can be moisturizing. Silica is a mineral-natural ingredient. It's popular in makeup and skincare. It can absorb sebum or thicken the texture. Dextrin is an ingredient that we usually associate with moisture. Sodium Hyaluronate or sodium salt of hyaluronic acid. It's a form of hyaluronic acid and naturally occurs in the skin. Sodium Hyaluronate has strong water-binding properties. Sodium hyaluronate combined with elastin and collagen is like a scaffolding for the skin. It has hydrating properties and leaves a hydrating film on the skin, but sodium hyaluronate prevents skincare products from drying. Disodium EDTA neutralizes metal ions in the formula to keep products fresh. Phenoxyethanol is a preservative that we shouldn't be afraid of. There are strict norms for this substance in our beauty products. Chlorphenesin is a synthetic ingredient used as a preservative in cosmetics. Caprylyl Glycol is an oily emollient and humectant. It leaves a moisturizing film on the surface of the skin. Ethylhexylglycerin is a preservative with subtle moisturizing and antimicrobial properties. 1,2-Hexanediol is a synthetic solvent and preservative - it protects products from microorganisms by boosting other preservatives. At the same time, it can moisturize the skin, and it has no unpleasant effects on your epidermis. Fragrance (Parfum) is a scent composition. It can cause allergic reactions.

How does Heimish Black Tea Mask Pack work?  

I'm a huge fan of the tea, so I knew that sooner or later I'll end up buying this mask anyway, but I didn't know what it was doing. Yes, I wanted to try a mask without knowing what can it do to my skin. Usually, I buy masks because I like the main ingredient or the effect, but sometimes I buy a product without checking it, and it can be a mistake. Let's start to talk about the mask, and then my experience with it.   

Heimish Black Tea Mask Pack is a 5-minute mask, even better - it's a morning mask. I tested this mask mostly during the evening routine because I love staying up all night and then running for my life during the morning routine, but that's actually why this mask was created. Heimish Black Tea Mask Pack is a mask that deals with puffiness in the morning. Its main task is to maintain the skin temperature and soothe the skin. It balances the skin moisture and helps with skin elasticity and pores. I was expecting this mask is going to be recommended as a summer mask, but no. I found that some websites recommend it as a winter mask.   

The use of this mask is also surprising because when I saw the texture of the Heimish Black Tea Mask Pack I swear - if it wasn't the back of the product saying it's a wash-off mask, I would use it as a sleeping mask. The texture was a huge surprise for me. Turns out we apply the mask after cleansing, leave it for 5-10 minutes and remove it with water. It's so simple! It's a mask which I would name "banquet mask". A mask that we use before going out, doesn't do much harm and it's not working very deep, but it makes your skin look better.   

I have to admit that I love the texture of this mask, it's so unique! I've never seen a product like this even if I worked on professional treatments before. Still, I have to admit - I might end up using it only on special occasions or when I'm at uni and I need to take proper care of my skin after a weekend of hard work in the harsh situation (usual rooms at uni are all full of people and I faint a lot because there's not enough space and windows). I enjoyed this mask, and I can't say anything bad about it - it doesn't cause my acne to go wild, it soothes my skin and makes it moist, and it works great under makeup. It's a unique product which I recommend trying, but I don't think about it like it's a product I can't live without.
