"Life-changing" celebrity face mask

This should be called the Benjamin Button mask

It literally makes you look older when you put it on, then makes you younger when you take it off.

The mask is called Hanacure Face Mask.

It is super creepy to look at but users cannot get enough of it.

Drew Barrymore says it has changed her life.

From the looks of it and the comments, it basically tightens your skin.

Experts say the Korean beauty product’s ingredients may help you moisturise, but the wrinkly part may just remove some dead skin.

The Hanacure website claims the masks reduce pores, hyper pigmentation and wrinkles in a month or less.

The company even says it includes botanicals such as lotus leaf extract, oriental raisin tree extract, green tea extract and more natural products. 

Gary Goldenberg, M.D., medical director of the Dermatology Faculty Practice at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, spoke to SELF about the mask.

“The mask likely improves pigmentation by improving moisturisation of skin.

SELF reports while the mask’s copper peptides can help combat wrinkles, moisturising treatments in general help because they “plump up” the skin around the wrinkles.

“This [the mask’s copper peptides] decreases the appearance of the wrinkle, but doesn't actually remove it.” 

If it’s good enough for Barrymore, it’s good enough for me.
