There are many different shapes. Jade or rose quartz stone are greatly used as they have healing energy. Choice is up to you.

Esthemax Hydrojelly Mask
Our jellymasks are made with refined alginate and contain a higher concentration of alginate than most rubber masks do – A new generation of peel-off masks boosted with pure algae, actives and new electrolyte technology. They start in powdered form and are activated with purified water for each application. As the water mixes with the powder, it forms a liquid “jelly” that is applied to the area. After about 15-20 minutes, the Hydrojelly solidifies, creating a vacuum seal that pushes all the beneficial ingredients into the skin pores. Once the mask solidifies it can then be removed with little to no residue.
Our Hydrojelly masks are organic and electrolyte infused to help increase skin’s ability to retain moisture and improve overall skin health. The Hydrojelly masks themselves are a delight to experience. As most facial masks neglect the eye and lip areas, Esthemax Hydrojelly masks can go over the eyes and lips, amplifying the benefits for the entire face.
As soon as the mask is applied, you immediately feel its cooling properties and smell its floral aroma. After the mask is removed, a warm towel compress completes the experience and removes any excess jelly residue from the face, leaving your skin hydrated, plump, and glowing.
The Jelly texture provides extra full hydration and instant cool and soothing effects all at once. They also create a completely silky soft, vacuum-like seal over the skin. This function is the most important! This vacuum-like seal helps increase penetration of active ingredients along with topical serums into the skin.
