The hand mask has a floral fragrance that isn't too overpowering; I don't know exactly what kind of scent it is since I'm so bad at deciphering smells. When you open the sachet both hand masks are folded neatly together and soaked in essence like a normal face mask.
To use the hand mask, follow the directions below:
1. Wash the hands then immerse them in hot water for 1 minute to increase circulation
2. Apply the hand mask and leave on for 20-30 minutes
3. Massage hands every few minutes until remaining essence is absorbed
4. After 30 minutes remove hand mask and discard
I actually forgot to soak my hands in hot water so I don't know if it makes much difference. Left the hand mask on for around 25 minutes before taking it off and fingers were starting to wrinkle because it was soaked in the essence. I was rubbing the essence in for my hands to absorb and to make it dry faster but I noticed the drier my hands getting, the stickier they felt. Definitely did not like this feeling.
My hands weren't rough and dry to begin with so I didn't see any dramatic difference other than the make up swatches on my hand that I forgot were there was removed. Also try not to stretch the gloves or anything as the material rips easily - one side is cotton while the other side reminds me of enviro bags.

If you ever want to use hand masks I recommend you to turn on a movie first before you use them or else you will be ridiculously bored. I most likely won't be using or purchasing these in the future unless my hands are in extremely poor conditions. So that's my 2 cents :)
Have you used any handmasks before? What are your thoughts on them?
Hope you're having a fabulous week!
