This celeb-loved facial mask looks hilarious on, but left me glowing for hours after

The Hanacure mask was the perfect skin pick-me-up.

. Once opened, I felt like a scientist as I mixed the tiny vial of serum with the gel pack. The kit also comes with a sleek brush with which to apply the gel. Once mixed, there was more than enough product for my face and neck, so I used the excess on the backs of my hands.

I knew my skin was very “thirsty” due to my age and going through menopause. According to anti-aging specialist Dr. Robert Keller, the mask's ingredients pull moisture into the skin.“Basically the protective outer layer will absorb the moisture in the product, expanding like a dry sponge would, and making you look like you have more volume,” Keller explained.

This gave me hope.With no make-up on my face, I had a clean (but divot-laden) canvas as I easily painted-on the clear Hanacure gel (making sure to avoid eyelids and lips, according to the directions).It gets to work very quicklyWithin 3 minutes, my skin started to itch. I kept my hands off my face as the sensation shifted to intense itching and pulling. However, it did not burn.

Around 7 minutes in, my face was practically frozen. I could hardly make an expression when I tried! Soon after that, the contortions began. The mask became so tight, it rearranged the structure of my face. By the time the full 20 minutes hit, my face was drawn in directions I didn’t know it could go.

I looked like a sleepy, sad monster. It was borderline uncomfortable, but at least I got a laugh from it.

It left me glowingI did not expect the mask to transform my skin. As Keller explained to us at Shop TODAY, any results I had would be temporary since"a face mask does not affect the dermis, the foundation of skin where collagen is produced." Anything that changes the dermal cell would have to be prescription-grade, he added.

But, I did go into it hoping for glowing skin — and I got just that. More than an hour later, my complexion retained that healthy looking hue, which was the main benefit for me. And the brightness and softness was still there when I went to bed, and lo and behold, lasted until the next morning.

Hanacure’s ingredient list states that “moisturizing biopolymers soothe & hydrate skin while reducing fine lines,” and although my skin did not feel moist (it'sverythirsty), it definitely felt softer. The ingredients also include antioxidants, which Keller explained “neutralize free radicals" that are formed when the skin is stressed or going through hormonal changes.

"Some of the ingredients, such as beta-glucan and lotus leaf are powerful antioxidants. So in that manner, the mask does help in ways you may not be able to see," he said.No, the one-time Hanacure mask didn’t cure my wrinkles, but it was a perfect pick me up before putting on actual clothes (instead of leggings and a tee-shirt) and heading out to a delicious dinner with my family.
