Beauty Pro Thermotherapy Warming Gold Foil Mask was an impulse purchase. I needed to spend an extra £2.00 to qualify for free shipping and I thought this was pretty cool.
I mean, it’s gold. And it warms up on its own. How smart is that?
Too smart for a sheet mask…
What’s In Beauty Pro Thermotherapy Warming Gold Foil Mask?
GLYCERIN & HYALURONIC ACID TO HYDRATE SKIN
Glycerin and hyaluronic acid are only two of the humectants in Beauty Pro Thermotherapy Warming Gold Foil Mask.
Humectant is a fancy word to describe ingredients that attract moisture into your skin and bind it there. They take this moisture from two places: the air all around you and the deeper layers of your skin.
It’s not as drying as you think. Roughly 60% of your skin is made up of moisture, so redistributing it won’t do you much harm. Heck, it can do your skin a world of good.
When all its layers have all the moisture they need, your skin plumps up so that your fine lines and wrinkles look smaller. Your face gets softer to the touch. Your complexion glows.
Hyaluronic acid is really good at this. It holds up to 1000 times its weight in water. Your skin will bathe in all that moisture!

UBIQUINONE TO PREVENT WRINKLES
Beauty Pro Thermotherapy Warming Gold Foil Mask With Hyaluronic Acid & Q10… What the heck is Q10?!
Its proper name is Ubiquinone (that’s how you’ll find it on the ingredient list). It’s a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals, reduces UV damage and stimulates collagen production.
A 1999 German study shows that using Coenzyme Q10 regularly reduces oxidative damage and could reduce crow feet.
FYI, Ubiquinone is a great addition to this mask. But no antioxidant is better than another. The more you add to your skincare routine, the better.

Performance & Personal Opinion
Beauty Pro Thermotherapy Warming Gold Foil is made up of a gold foil sheet infused with a hydrating essence. The goal foil doesn’t do anything special. It just makes the mask look cool. When you’re competing with a million sheet masks, you have to stand out somehow…
The sheet is big enough to fit my face. It’s easy to apply and adheres to the skin well. The instructions say to leave it on for 20 minutes. Wouldn’t that be too long once the mask started to heat up?
I shouldn’t have worried. I kept counting the minutes but this thing didn’t warm up. AT ALL. Ok, my face started to feel a little warmer after the 10 minute mark, but by then Torn by Natalie Imbruglia popped up on my iPhone and I started dancing around. What can I say? Waiting for sheet masks to do their job is boring.
At least, Beauty Pro didn’t lie about the hydration part. The essence is so rich, it doesn’t absorb quickly into the skin. When I took the mask off a few minutes later, I still had a lot on my skin. I gently patted it in, did the rest of my skincare routine and went to bed.
When I woke up the next morning, my skin felt super soft to the touch and was positively glowing. My face looked plumper, which in turn made the fine lines around the corners of my eyes look smaller.
If you’re looking for a hydrating mask, Beauty Pro Thermotherapy Warming Gold Foil will do the job. Just don’t expect it to do any special tricks, too.
Who Is This For?
- Dry skin.
- Dehydrated skin.
Who Is This NOT For?
If you’re expecting any extra benefits, this isn’t for you.
The mask comes in a golden sachet.
Does Beauty Pro Thermotherapy Warming Gold Foil Mask Live Up To Its Claims?
|The BeautyPro Hyaluronic Acid Gold Foil Mask is an intensely hydrating and nourishing treatment that utilises your natural body temperature to create a warming sensation. This transfer of heat accelerates the penetration of the powerful ingredients into the skin, increasing their effectiveness and providing instant results.||It’s very hydrating, but it doesn’t cause any warming sensations.|
|Hyaluronic Acid is a skincare must have due to its deeply hydrating nature. Each molecule of the ingredient can hold over 1,000 times its weight in water and therefore it’s the perfect choice for skin hydration. Hydrated skin has more elasticity, stays moisturised and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.||True.|
