I have a new release from Papa Recipe today - the Bombee Rose Gold Honey mask. I was pretty excited for this and picked it up as soon as it was in stock at one of my favourite local AB shops, The Cosmetic Store. I paid NZ $26.90 for a box of 5. It comes in gorgeous pink-toned packaging, and boasts rose extract and gold as key ingredients, in addition to the usual honey, propolis, and royal jelly in Bombee masks.
Water, Methylpropanediol, Glycereth-26, Glycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Rosa Damascena Flower Water (1,000ppm), Rosa Centifolia Flower Extract (10ppm), Propolis Extract, Honey Extract, Pearl Extract, Royal Jelly Extract, Butylene Glycol, Betain, Allantoin, Panthenol, Xanthan Gum, Disodium EDTA, Potassium Hydroxide, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Gold (10ppm), Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Chondrus Crispus Flower, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Ethyl Hexanediol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance
I did like the overall fit of this mask better than the original Bombee - it's slightly smaller, so I have less overlap of the mask going straight onto my hair. I also found that it generally adhered to my face very well with minimal discomfort. While it is a little bit thicker than the original mask, it still feels luxurious to wear.
original Bombee mask*, which I can find locally for NZ $19.90/box of 10.

1 - Terrible: Negative effects on skin.
2 - Mediocre: No change in skin/claims not met.
3 - Average: Performs as expected.
4 - Good: Would repurchase unless I try something better.
5 - Amazing: Meets trifecta of perfect packaging, formula, & cost.
