We Tried It: The “Old Lady” Mask That Went Viral on Instagram Aired September 14, 2018

When actress Drew Barrymore posted this photo of herself — actually, it looked like a much older version of herself — on Instagram, people went nuts!

What did she have on her face? A trendy Korean face mask from brand Hanacure that they call the “All-In-One Facial."  

When the mask dries on your face, it makes your skin look very old and VERY wrinkly -- but when it’s rinsed off, it claims to leave you glowing. In the words of Hanacure, it will "smooth, correct, brighten, tighten, lift, firm, and detoxify."

Our resident beauty expert Gretta Monahan schooled us on the mask.

As she explains, each box comes with a pack of four treatments with a gelling solution, an application brush and small vials of serum. The mask -- which includes peptides and plant ingredients like green tea, lotus leaf, and honeysuckle extract – is intended to reduce oil production, build collagen, and exfoliate, says Gretta, who showed us how to use it: you combine the serum and solution in the vial, shake for twenty seconds and then apply to the face with a brush.

As you can see in the video of our viewer named Leslie above, the mask starts out clear before tightening and wrinkling, literally giving you an “old lady” face. But, after 30 minutes, it rinses off and is supposed to reveal the most fabulous, radiant skin.
