Talika Bio Enzymes Mask Review: Purifying Mask and After-Sun Mask
The PERFECT face masks for travel or on-the-go! Talika Bio Enzymes Masks are tailored to YOUR specific skincare needs. Read why they’re a travel MUST!
Inspired by skin regeneration therapy, these innovative masks form a second skin to deliver potent ingredients deep into your skin for super targeted results.
Because of it’s use of 100% natural fiber, this second skin effect offers a concentration in active ingredients 10x higher than any other material! Meaning 10x more active ingredients are in contact with your skin than a typical serum or face mask!
And the ingredients that it delivers depends on the mask chosen for your specific skincare concerns. Brightening, Hydrating, Purifying, After-Sun, and Anti-Aging.
Talika, a french skincare brand, is famous for their scientific and innovative approach to solving some of our deepest skincare concerns. They are especially well-known for their eyelash growth serums, but lately they have really hit-the-mark with other tailored skincare solutions and the Bio Enzymes Masks are one of those products that you’ll be hearing a lot about!
Not only do these masks offer a high concentration of active ingredients, but because these ingredients are delivered in the form of a second skin sheet mask, they offer ultimate ease-of-use and convenience.
These handy masks comes in individual wrappers and are perfect for traveling or those with a busy lifestyle!
No need to fuss with bottles, messy hands, sticky faces, wash cloths, or sinks….just simply take it out, set it on your skin, wait, and remove!
I take these masks every time I travel as they are perfect for imparting moisture during a long-haul flight, brightening jet-lagged skin in the hotel room, or for use after you’ve spent a little too much time pool-side or at the beach!
The Talika Bio Enzymes Masks are a travel MUST!
Although I imagine ALL of the variations of the masks to be exceptional, I tried the Purifying Mask and the After-Sun Mask specifically.
Talika Bio Enzymes Mask Purifying
The purifying mask works specifically target oily, combination skin and skin with spots or large pores. It works to purify the epidermis, shrink pores, and reduce the appearance of acne scars.
The main ingredients are:
Cinnamon helps to purify skin, remove dead skin cells, and reduce pore size.
Arnica helps to heal spots and reduce inflammation.
Argan oil protects and soothes skin.
Along with a secret blend of Alpine herbs to increase the effectiveness of the above ingredients and to create a zen-like spa smell that is divine!
After applying the sheet to skin and feeling a bit of a tingle (from the cinnamon) I let the mask do it’s work as I chilled, watched TV, listened to some music and had some R&R for about 30min.
As it is a sheet mask, it’s best to lie down or put your head back, in order for it to stay put. Although it does form a good bond with the skin, I wasn’t able to get up, walk around, or do any other upright activities without it feeling like it was slipping down my face. But I think it’s nice to be forced to sit back and put your feet up for a while!
After about 30min, you simply peel off the mask and gently pat the remaining ingredients into your skin and VOILA!
My skin looked brighter, pores looked smaller, and old acne scars had seemed to fade slightly. Also, one spot that I had seemed less red and reduced in size!
The results weren’t spectacular, but I DID see improvement in my skin, and it did do what it said it would do. It’s just that like anyone else with imperfect skin we are always searching for a miracle!
Talika Bio Enzymes Mask After-Sun
This mask is definitely a beauty bag staple for every beach vacation that I go on from now on!
After a few days of a “heat wave” here in the UK, I was a little too eager to get some color and so took the opportunity to picnic and lay on the grass soaking up the Summer sun. However, this left me with a full-on sunburn by the end of the day and I thought this would be a great time to try out the Talika After-Sun mask!
And I’m so glad I did!
First off, the cool, wet second skin sheet felt SOOOOO good on my sun-drenched skin!
Very soothing as it’s special ingredients go to work such as:
Hyaluronic acid and Collagen to replump the skin and help the skin retain moisture.
Water-harnessing sugar naturally stimulates the regeneration of the skin barrier.
Arnica reduces inflammation and redness.
This mask left my skin feeling hydrated, smooth, refreshed, and less red! The best part about it is that the sunburn was reduced and no peeling occurred. My sunburned skin even developed into a nice bronze tan the next day instead.
I am definitely taking the Talika After-Sun mask with me on every beach holiday I go on from now on!

The Perfume Expert Rating
Summary: These individually wrapped sheet masks are a must have when traveling! Whether you want to hydrate skin on a long haul flight, brighten up jet-lagged skin in the hotel, or soothe sunburned skin while on your beach vacation, these masks are supercharged with beneficial ingredients and are super easy to use! Only downfall is the slightly expensive price when compared to other sheet masks and the fact that they aren't packed with even MORE good stuff!
