Strikin' It Rich: Eclado Gold Essential Mask Review

Asking why you should spend $50 for 10 sheet masks when there are $10 options is like asking why you should spend $50 on a nicer bottle of wine when you can get drunk off $5 rotgut.

About the product

What Is It:


This gold hydrogel mask is not merely window dressing — there really is 24-karat gold in this mask (it’s the fifth ingredient listed). Purportedly used by Cleopatra in her beauty regimen, gold has long been touted for its ability to firm skin, increase circulation, and tamp down inflammation. Six herb extracts, including lavender, chamomile, and purslane (which has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties), soothe and calm skin while fighting oxidative damage from UV rays and pollution. Hyaluronic acid draws in moisture and keeps skin hydrated. But what we really love about this mask is its unique design that allows even the eyelids and lip area to get the full benefit of the mask, leaving skin plumped and firmed with a matte finish.

How to use:


Apply top half of the mask, opening eye slots to fit around the eyes. Then apply bottom half of the mask, opening mouth slot to fit lips or placing over lips. Leave on for 20 minutes.
