#Elizavecca #MilkyPiggy Donkey Steam Cream Mask #Review

You all know about my love affair with Elizavecca by now, and more than likely about my adoration for donkey milk in my skincare products - so when I found these donkey milk sheet masks on Jolse a few months ago I instantly had to order them. It was shortly before I started trentinoin in my Curology script - so I figured even my oily skin could use a deeply hydrating steam cream mask, right?

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Silky Creamy Donkey Steam Cream Mask Pack

This product was purchased by me.

This is a heavy moisturizing mask pack containing donkey milk. This mask is supposed to deliver shine, moisture, smooth texture, elasticity, nutrition and flexibility to the skin.

Squeeze the cream around inside the mask packet to evenly distribute it throughout the mask material. Cut away a corner of the packet and squeeze out the excess cream into a clean container. Open the packet and apply the mask - spread extra cream on the mask material if needed. Leave on face for 15-20 minutes then remove. Pat in remaining cream essence, and use the excess as needed as a facial or body moisturizer.

My skin is oily, dehydrated, acne-prone with hormonal cystic acne from PCOS and sensitive to alcohol, bee venom and propolis.

This mask has a very light perfume scent to it. It does disappear shortly after you apply it, but when you first open the packet it can be slightly off-putting. I tried this mask several times to get the combo of sheet mask and cream just right and I have to say that for oily skin like mine, it's best to remove a majority of the cream from the packet then apply the mask. It will feel a little dry, but the cream is oily enough to help the mask adhere to your skin as long as you're not doing cartwheels in your living room. If you have a mask cover, that is going to help a lot with this mask.
You can apply more cream if the mask feels too dry, but the more cream you apply the thicker the "steaming" layer is on your skin, and if you have skin like mine you'll have more sweat on your face than moisturizing cream. This mask works well as a final step if you're skin isn't super dry - the cream soaks in while the mask is on and leaves a layer on your skin after removal. Even after patting in the remainder, you can still feel the protective hydrating film on your skin.

Though this may be a bit too heavy of a mask for oily skin like mine, I can really appreciate the hydrating and protective features of this mask - and how plump and bright my skin looks in the morning is completely worth it. The excess of cream essence is a bonus as well - I love using it as an emulsion on my face at night, and on my arms and hands when they are dry.
