Do you remember back in December when I bought a bunch of sheet masks from THEFACESHOP? I have finally finished putting them to the test.
Each mask contains a single use sheet mask that is doused in serum. I have tried a few sheet masks in the past and wasn’t overly impressed but as Korean skincare had swept the beauty world by storm, I thought I would give them another shot. The one thing I liked consistently about these Real Nature masks by THEFACESHOP is the cut of the mask. I didn’t find it went into my hair but it still covered much of my face and it was easy to unfold and apply. The serum varies depending on which mask you choose but every mask in the line is $2.
I was curious what the difference was from mask to mask. I didn’t think there would be a lot of variety especially when the descriptions of the masks were very similarly described: nourishing, hydrating, brightening, refreshing, and so on. After trying the first two, I could tell right away that there were differences between them.
Cucumber: This is one of my favourite masks – I totally recommend it. This mask was very hydrating, and seemed to have even more serum on it than the others. I felt like it was really effective with no gross feeling afterwords.
Lemon: I noticed the biggest difference with this mask above any other. It claimed to brighten the skin and it does just that. If you were to pick up any of these masks, this is the one you need to get your hands on.
Green Tea: I thought this would be the grand prize winner for me but I didn’t find that this mask did as much as some of the others.
Rice: I wasn’t sure what to expect out of this mask but it was one of the driest face masks in the bunch. To me, this one wasn’t all that great.
Red Ginsing: This was my absolute least favourite. It smelled of dirt, left my face tinted brown (the colour of the serum), and my face felt sticky afterwards. I saw a difference in my pores but not enough for me to use this mask again.
Aloe: this mask wasn’t anything special in my opinion either. It did moisturizer and soothe but no magic.
The grand prize winners here were absolutely the Cucumber, Honey and Lemon masks. There was an instant and noticeable difference with each one and each of them are different. One total con about THEFACESHOP is that they are not cruelty free.
Let me know if you would like he see a review of THEFACESHOP Clean Face line as well (pictured above) and I will gladly do so.
