Glam Touch UK recently introduced me to the Banobagi Rejuvenating Vital Line, which launched last month on Glam Touch’s website with a virtual event over Zoom which was live streamed on YouTube. The Banobagi Caviar Return Mask – a premium revitalising sheet mask, was released alongside the main products within the anti-aging range. A like the other products within the collection this skin softening sheet mask utilises Sodium DNA sourced from Sturgeon.
Banobagi’s research in partnership with a clinic/research laboratory in Italy, which specialises in Sodium DNA, determined that Sodium DNA from Sturgeon fish is more effective than Salmon Caviar extracts in terms of skin rejuvenation. In recent years, Sodium DNA has been recognised for its ability to nourish ageing and damaged skin types in cosmetics, and isn’t just beneficial for medical practices when caring for wounds and burns.
The collaboration between both clinics means that the Banobagi Caviar Return Mask is the first sheet mask in Korea, to be formulated with S-PDRN (sturgeon-PDRN); it’s keep function being to rejuvenate depleted skin types. This mask additionally uses a technology known as ‘Transfersome System’ – its role is to help the essence of the mask absorb more directly into skin.
Other supplementary ingredients: Lotus root extract, Allantoin, Niacinamide and Lecithins.

As soon as I took this mask out of the packaging I was impressed. The sheet was ultra soft and it was plentiful in milky essence; that in itself proved that this is indeed a premium sheet mask. I’m not even exaggerating when I say this mask is like a blanket for your face. All the other sheet masks I’ve tried from Banobagi have provided comfort, but this one was noticeably softer – I think the creamy essence played a big part in that.
Fit: 8/10, good enough for my liking. It sticks to skin really well, but of course as always if you have a small face you’ll have to overlap some of the edges to make the mask fit snuggly.
Price point: 7/10, not cheap enough to use more that once per week. Although the price isn’t extortionate if you intend to use this product as an occasional treat for skin. At Glam Touch each mask retails for £4.50.
Impact: 9/10, I think the performance of the mask justifies the price point. It makes skin softer, restores more than enough moisture, it’s isn’t greasy and not too sticky either and it makes skin feel firmer. If you’re someone who prefers “milky” masks that improve skin elasticity, you will enjoy this one too.
Repurchase?: Yes, for sure!
Overall rating: 8.5/10.
