Papa Recipe Bombee Honey Mask Review
This is a sponsored post with affiliate links. All opinions are my own.
I love a good sheet mask. It’s a wonderfully relaxing way to get extra nourishment and hydration while unwinding at the end of the day. Papa Recipe makes some of my favorite sheet masks, so I’m always happy to try more of them.
Papa Recipe Bombee Honey Mask promises a youthful glow without a greasy / heavy feeling. Its hydrating formula with honey, propolis, licorice, panthenol, and other plant extracts aims to brighten, even out the skin tone, and improve the look of pores and fine lines. The masks are available on Amazon (save extra with the code 10AFZARI until March 17th by clicking this link), YesStyle (reward code KBHOBBIT), and Stylevana (code INF10KBH).
How to use:
Remove the mask from its plastic backing
Apply to a clean face (I like to use toner first)
Gently smooth down
Relax for 20-30 minutes
Discard the mask, pat in any remaining essence
Follow with moisturizer
The sheet material is thin and very soft, adhering to the skin almost perfectly (it’s one of my favorite kinds of sheet masks). It is soaked in a thicker-than-water essence that smells of fresh honey and wild flowers. The scent is noticeable but not overwhelming and doesn’t linger. For me, it contributes to the overall experience of using the mask and helps me relax and fully immerse myself in the process of self care.
These are wonderful masks, which isn’t surprising - Papa Recipe has a fantastic reputation specifically for their sheet masks. I’ve had several boxes of Papa Recipe Bombee Fruitables, and they were spectacular. I even gifted one of my dear friends a couple boxes of the honey masks for Christmas 2021.
I have combination skin with some oily and some dry areas. Right now, the weather is terrible (cold, windy) and the indoor air is very dry due to heating, so my skin is in need of serious pampering. My favorite way to enjoy a Papa Recipe sheet mask is to draw a warm bath and completely relax while watching youtube videos. The steam from the water helps the mask work even better.
My skin is noticeably more hydrated and plump. As soon as the mask is off, I seal all of the goodness in with a rich moisturizer. In the morning, my skin looks refreshed and nourished. The dry areas are happy but the oily t-zone isn’t congested or greasy - it’s the best of both worlds.
My only tiny bit of criticism is the opening around the base of the nose - for my face, it’s a bit too wide. It’s definitely not a deal breaker (and not unique to Papa Recipe). It was the only less-than-perfect thing I could think about.
