Over the Moonshot – Moonshot Makeup Ready Mask

From the Peach and Lily sample sale files is this random mask which I had to have because hel-lo, all the skin care was being grabbed and swiped like it was the zombie apocalypse and the only cure was moar skin care! And I’m a mask luna-tic (heh, heh, heh).

I looked up this brand and, until very recently, there wasn’t a ton of information on it. Apparently the flagship store in Korea only opened October 2014 and the brand is backed by YG Entertainment which churns out bubble gum K-Pop (the likes of Psy) rather than serious cosmetics. They DO have an online shop where you can purchase all their stuff. Free international shipping IF you spend over $200. Good luck. You can get the Moonshot Makeup Ready Mask being reviewed on here as well. As stated, this mask is made so that you can be ready for makeup. Because who knows when Makeup can strike?!

I was super thrilled to be able to grab a NEW thing I hadn’t seen before at the sample sale. Upon closer inspection this mask contains alcohol AND castor oil. No bueno! Here’s the full list:

Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Alcohol Denat., Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, 1,2-Hexanediol, Trehalose, Sodium Hyaluronate, Carbomer, Dimethicone, Ceramide 3, Octyldodecanol, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Brassica Campestris(Rapeseed) Seed Oil, Vitis Vinifera(Grape) Seed Oil, Linum Usitatissimum(Linseed) Seed Oil, Juglans Regia(Walnut) Seed Oil, Melissa Officinalis Flower/Leaf/Stem Water, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Water, Calendula Officinalis Flower Water, Rosa Damascena Flower Water, Triticum Spelta Seed Water, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Triethanolamine, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance

The mask is loose and ill fitting because of the thick-ish fabric. It also smells strongly of the denatured alcohol (added as an antimicrobial agent). There’s plenty of serum and the texture is shiny and sticky. Behold the mask on:

I opted to put on the Daiso silicone mask protector to help with the fit and absorption. That was a much better arrangement than loose mask alone.

Happy to have grabbed it from the $10 pile at the sample sale but no way is it worth $19 for a box of 3. It’s moisturizing and softening but not extraordinary as far as I can tell. Sorry Moonshot propaganda: “Ordinary things are the more extraordinary than they appear to be.” Nope. Not really over the moon on this one.

Pros: purrrrty packaging, nice softening effect after stickiness goes away

Cons: difficult to find in stores, pricey, not really worth it

  1. I had this in my hands during Day 2 and after I sat down to read the packaging that it’s described to have you ready for makeup.. I was like.. errmmm what does that mean? It’s full of silicones to smooth out my face? I put it back, didn’t look back. Let’s set up a swap date soon ❤
