Too Cool For School - Egg Cream Pore Tightening Mask
Too Cool For School is a South Korean beauty brand known to be artistic with a focus on creative experimentation. The Egg Cream sheet mask is made to target oily skin and large pores. It's made out of a microfiber material that is infused with egg white extract to help minimize pores and white vinegar for clarification.
Directions: Remove the mask from packaing and discard the mesh from the sheet mask. Apply the sheet mask to your face for 10-20 minutes. Upon completion remove the mask and massage the remaining serum into the skin.

As someone with normal to oily skin with enlarged pores in my t-zone, I was intrigued to see if the ingredients and the mask lived up to the claims listed below:
-Vinegar Extract: Minimizes the look of pores.
-Witch Hazel Extract: Moisturizes and soothes.
-Egg White Extract (Albumen): Reduces shine and tightens the appearance of pores.
-Egg Yolk Extract: Hydrates and nurtures.
Before and After
Too Cool For School
Egg Cream Mask - Pore Tightening
Prior to using the mask I cleansed my skin with the Skin Laundry Gentle Cleanser (as seen mentioned in my skincare routine post). I kept the mask on for about 25 minutes. I was expecting the mask to smell like vinegar as it was listed as one of the main ingredients. However, it smelled quite pleasant. The sheet mask itself was made from a thick fiber cloth. The cloth was thicker than any other sheet mask that I've used in the past, it was very saturated with the serum and fit very well on my face.
After using the Egg Cream mask I rubbed the excess serum into my skin as suggestion by the directions and it was a bit sticky to the touch. The mask didn't do much to minimize my pores. My face did feel very moisturized and smooth to the touch. I don't think the mask did much to reduce the appearance of shine, but I do think it helped to make my face feel noticeably firmer after using it.
Lastly, I used my favorite night time moisturizer, Dr. Roebuck No Worries Hydrating Face Moisturizer (check out my review). I was honestly surprised by this mask. However, I don't believe the results were drastic enough to be seen in my pictures, especially after a one time use. I'll likely repurchase the mask again in the future. The price point was really inexpensive with it only being $6.00 at Sephora. I think it's good for a quick fix!
