This has been the best product for my acne scars! I received this essence courtesy of @amabiebeauty & I'm forever grateful to have found this brand (their Triple Hyaluronic Acid Mask is my HG mask!). The name says essence but it is more of a serum. It helps to repair skin, moisturize & maintain skin elasticity, soothe the skin, smooth fine lines, and delay aging by restoring skin's vitality. . 🍃 Texture/colour: It's a thick liquid with a murky yellow colour. 🍃 Scent: Has a thick distilled water scent, not overpowering. 🍃 How/when I use it: I use this in my PM routine, alternately with the snail mucin essence I have. I use it after my FTE & toner, before sheet masking. 🍃 Thoughts: Been using this serum consistently for few months (it's finishing soon 😢😢😢) & I believe it does give my skin a more youthful look. Previously my acne/pimple scars take very long to lighten but this essence managed to clear them up faster. It also provides sufficient moisture & skin texture is smoother. It has a tacky feel when applying but not a big issue. Hope to purchase it soon! 

This mask contains an ample amount of Vitamins A, B, D, C and E & bio-polymers to moisturize & slow down the aging process. It also aims to intensely hydrate & leave your skin looking bright, radiant, and youthful.
Upon opening, a strong flowery (?) scent. Mask is really thin but not 'second skin' thin, which I really like. Fit is great! Felt a somewhat burning sensation but it didn't last long. Fell asleep using this mask so kept it on until I woke up; it dried on the skin but wasn't stuck, so it was very easy to remove without any pain.
Results: AMAZING - pores were smaller & skin was glowing without any oily finish. Skin felt quite hydrated even though I didn't moisturize before masking, major plus there. No skin irritations or breakouts detected. Would totally include this mask in my collection.

Chose this coz I had some pimples popping up. "This exfoliating blemish treatment mask soothes problem of complexion's irritations & sends unsightly oil shine to far-off destinations." Uhuh. Contains Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate + Witch Hazel Extract + Hyaluronic Acid.
Upon opening, strong chemical scent. Easy to apply, fit is good, texture is smooth cotton. Felt a slight burning feeling for a while, didn't dry off fast so kept on for 30 minutes.
Results: No skin redness, which is good. Pimples/breakouts weren't immediately 'terminated' but they were calmer & gone faster than if I were to use pimple pads. Skin had a slightly greasy shine but not too oily. Probably won't repurchase coz it's a meh.

Bought this in Seoul. This mask contains Apple extracts (apparently Muzi is crazy about apples) that aims to sooth & moisturize rough, sensitive skin.
Upon opening, a fruity scent, not sure if apples smell like that but it was quite strong. Mask has the printed face of Muzi, fit is good around the mid-face area but overlapped around the outer areas. Texture is normal cotton. I like this mask for it's eye flaps. Kept on for 35 minutes until it dried up. No essence left in packet.
Results when I woke up: Somewhat soothing but not much difference to skin texture. No breakouts & no oily stickiness so that's a plus. Won't repurchase this, though.

This mask has the combo of Clay + Apple extracts to help with tightening & clearing up of pores for smooth skin.
Upon opening, a fruity scent but more subtle than the previous THEFACESHOP Muzi mask I reviewed, which is nice. I don't generally prefer hydrogel masks but this one was a pleasant surprise! Fit was AMAZING & didn't slide off easily. Easy to unfold & adhered really well to the face shape. Didn't dry up too fast so kept on for about 40 minutes.
Results when I woke up: Pores were somewhat smaller but sudden appearance of blackheads 😕😕😕 Though I did manage to remove those easily with a facial scrub. Skin was hydrated & didn't wake up to greasy skin. A good hydrogel mask but probably won't repurchase unless there was a discount.

This eye mask aims to nourish & revitalize skin around the eyes, as well as to prevent & lighten dark circles & fine lines. Upon opening, no scent detected; watery essence, not too thick, but no leftover essence in packet. Fit was slightly large around the eyes, didn't cover much eye areas. Felt like Batman with this mask! 😁😁😁😁😁 Nananananana~~~ dried up quite fast, about 15 minutes, so I removed it & continued with usual skincare routine. Results in the morning: no visible effect except for smoother skin. No brightening effects. I only like it for the design. Won't be repurchasing.

A favourite! Coz I love charcoal masks! It's super moist & has loads of essence! The sheet mask feel is also smoother than the normal mask sheets, great thickness, subtle smell & cool feeling. Didn't dry too fast so I kept int on for more than 30 minutes.  Skin felt very soft after use, no breakouts & hydrated skin. Definite repurchase!

This is a wrinkle-smoothing sheet mask enriched with French palmarosa extract to moisturize the skin and lessen wrinkles. Contains hyaluronic acid, chamomile extract, and proline added, this sheet mask can repair and restore the smoothness back to your skin. Upon opening, there is a slight flowery smell. L'Herboflore masks have a lot of essence, so mask was soaked & lots of essence left in packet. Surprisingly, this mask was very thin; I actually ripped some parts of the mask. Not much effect except for slight skin brightening. Will try other masks from L'Herboflore.

This mask sheet contains nourishing cream that aims to revitalize tired skin. Upon opening, had a milky scent. Mask is thick & had loads of creamy essence. Fit was great, felt a slight tingling on the skin. Kept on for about half an hour. Loads of leftover essence in packet. Results: skin felt soft but not much hydration. A bit of brightening & no breakouts. This is probably THEFACESHOP's best mask series. I like how creamy it is compared to their other series.

Can't tell much about this mask; everything was in Korean 😂😂😂😂😂 and can't find anything online about it. However, Lemon Balm is known for it's medicinal & anti-aging properties. Upon opening, there was a subtle citrus smell. The mask is quite big & easily torn but thick enough. Kept on for about 30 minutes. Results in the morning: Woke up to smaller pores & non-oily skin! Not much moisture but no breakouts. Would love to repurchase this but can't remember where I got it lol.

This mask promotes moist & healthy skin by providing mineral water to help nourish skin. Upon opening, no scent detected. Mask is the 'second skin' type of mask. Fit was not so good; mouth & eye areas were too small. Comparing this to other 'second skin' masks, this one didn't adhere well to skin. Some parts crumpled up & was hard to smooth over. Left on for about 20 minutes as it dried fast & started sticking hard to my skin. Results: Not too bad, skin felt hydrated & not oily when I woke up. Not much change to skin texture, but plump enough. May not repurchase; other masks are better.

This mask has soy milk properties, containing vegetable proteins that acts as a natural substance for skin to maintain flexibility, firmness & brightness. Upon opening, had a faint grainy (bean-y?) smell, but not overpowering. Mask is really thin but adheres well to skin. Fit is great; texture is soft. Kept on for about 30 minutes; dried fast on the T-zone so I applied the leftover essence onto the mask to prolong wearing it. Results in the morning: Not much can be said; woke up to oily T-zone but not much hydration on other areas. Won't repurchase.

This mask contains the precious & high-quality ingredients such as pearl powder, Ginseng and Chinese liquorice extracts to effectively nourish & moisturize the skin, improving roughness and dullness. Upon opening, there was a subtle sweet scent. No unpleasant herbal scent. Mask is thin; in between 2 layers of film. Fit is great, just a few bubbles. Kept on for almost 30 minutes until slightly dry. Results: not too bad! Skin was plump & somehow managed to minimize pores. Also noticed that the skin looked slightly brighter. Felt smooth. Wouldn't mind repurchasing.

This hydro gel mask contains olive ingredients to form a natural moisture barrier to the skin to help retain long lasting moisture within. Upon opening, had a nice scent, but not much essence. I don't particularly like hydro gel masks, but this was one of the 'not bad' ones. Mask can be easily applied & doesn't slide off face easily. Cool feeling lasted about 15 minutes, fit was almost perfect (a little bit wide on the mouth area). Applied leftover essence after removing mask. Results: woke up with super oily skin lol~~~ but felt hydrated and no breakouts. Will probably repurchase again.

Its main element is Ginseng, aiming for dry & damaged skin.

Smell: Initially it had a weird smell that gradually faded so it wasn't bad; guessing it's the ginseng, not really familiar with how ginseng smells.

Look: The mask design is definitely fun to use & pretty to look at. Sort of like a masquerade mask. Initially thought it was an eye mask only lol~ 
Feel: Mask was quite thick, moisture lasted for more than half an hour. Skin did feel a lot smoother in the morning, softer texture & super moisturized!

Tried this cute Tony Moly Panda's Dream Eye Patch: Definitely works wonders! Consists of two pieces of dark-coloured patches, big enough to cover the eye area (below eyebrows & slightly above cheeks); practically making an appearance of Panda eyes! Has a light neutral scent & enough essence to keep patches moist on eyes. A cooling feeling for relaxation, and eye area does feel smoother. Personally pleased with skin texture after 1 time application.

This mask sheet contains Acai Berry extract to provide anti-oxidants for younger & healthier skin. Upon opening, had a subtle acai berry juice smell. Etude House I Need You Masks have a good amount of essence, this one included. Mask was soaked & even had leftover essence in the packet. The thickness of the mask is good, however the fit is a bit small. The forehead area didn't reach my hairline & the eye holes were small, they covered my eyelids! I have tried other Etude House masks but their fit was way better. Results in the morning: some breakouts calmed down, skin was plump & felt very soft & smooth. No major changes to pores. Will probably repurchase but Etude House already discontinued this series.

This mask sheet aims to provide radiant skin that is full of vitality. Upon opening, there was a subtle mango scent. Fit was good, soaked with essence & didn't dry fast. Kept on for about half an hour & applied leftover essence onto skin. Results in the morning: mask did an okay job. Can't claim skin to be radiant but pores were slightly calmer. Not much hydration though. Will repurchase, maybe, to retry.

This mask contains Snail Mucin to lock in moisture & supply a layer of nourishment to the skin. Ingredients include Red Ginseng Water & Snail Secretion Filtrate. Upon opening, a pleasant smell. Mask is a cotton mask which was soaked in essence. Lots of leftover essence. Fit is great. Kept on for almost 30 minutes, didn't dry up too fast. Results: Great effect on the pores! Pores were less visible. Also great hydration & skin fell smooth when I woke up. Helped to calm some of the skin irritations caused by AHA. Will definitely repurchase!

This mask aims to give a moisturizing effect for a smooth, gentle & hydrated skin. Upon opening, had a fresh watery scent. Mask is quite thick & thoroughly soaked in essence. Fit is close to perfection! Didn't dry too fast; kept on for about 45 minutes until I fell asleep & it flew away 😂😂😂😂😂 Felt a cooling & calming sensation. Loads of essence left in packet. Results in the morning: AMAZING! Shrunken pores & no oiliness; helped to calm some redness & breakouts that I had. Soft smooth skin that was well-hydrated. This was the 1st time I tried a My Scheming mask after reading loads of good reviews from the ABcommunity so will definitely repurchase more!

Contains Jeju Tangerine peel extract that provides fresh moisture to dull skin. Had a pleasant scent of oranges upon opening. Delicate cotton mask soaked in mildly watery essence. The pleasantness of the scent was short lived because the fit is HORRIBLE. Too big around the eyes, nose, lips area. Didn't enjoy the feeling & kept it on for close to 30 minutes only. Applied leftover essence in packet, which felt nicer coz of the scent. Results in the morning: not much hydration but didn't cause any breakouts so it was okay.

Had a strong ginseng smell that I didn't really appreciate, but the scent went away after a while.  Fit is good but dried up very fast.  Results in the morning:  some brightening but not much hydration.  Might repurchase just to retry.

T.P.O. Moisturizing Mask contains plant ingredients like Aloe Vera, Sage, Bamboo, Rosemary & Lily.  Upon opening, had a subtle freshwater scent. Fit is good & mask is thin. Kept on for goodness how long coz I fell asleep haha.  Results in the morning: Woke up to non oily skin. Pores were good & redness was gone!

This mask is immersed in essence containing Cotton Seed Extract & Niacinamide that helps to brighten & make darker skin lighter and radiant.  Upon opening, had a strong but pleasant tangerine smell 😍😍😍 fit is good although a bit larger on the chin & head area. Texture is thick, which I really like. Kept on for almost 30 minutes.  Results in the morning: BRILLIANT! Pores were non-existent, skin tone was definitely brighter & skin was plump. Not much hydration, though, woke up to slight oily film. I got this when I was in Seoul, will repurchase.

Cute packaging containing two eye patches, placed on the under eye. Had a subtle cucumber scent. Cooling feeling that helped to relax. Results in the morning: skin around eyes felt very soft & smoother. No dark circles!

This mask sheet helps to brighten up dull & exhausted skin. Contains lycopene, an effective antioxidant that helps eliminate toxins that cause dullness & stress. What's unique about this mask sheet is that it comes in individual patches, imitating actual tomato slices that allows you to place them onto the areas you need more help with. This series also has Lemon & Cucumber.  Upon opening, had a subtle tomato juice scent but a bit more chemical-ish. The patches are different sizes so basically you decide where you want to apply them. The patches dried up quite fast so kept them on for about 15 mins only. This is my 1st time trying it & I found it a bit funny. Lots of essence left so after removing the patches, I applied it directly on skin.  Results: AMAZING! Pores actually shrunk! So amazed hahaha.. but not sure if it's a lasting effect 😂😂😂😂😂 Pretty satisfied with this mask so I may repurchase it. 

This Mask sheet in Cucumber provides moisture and nourishment while giving your skin a nice cooling effect for better relaxation. It comes in individual patches, imitating actual cucumber slices that allows you to place them onto the areas you need more help with. This series also has Lemon & Tomato.  Upon opening, had a fresh cucumber scent. The patches are different sizes so basically you decide where you want to apply them. The patches dried up quite fast so kept them on for about 15 mins only. Not much essence leftover compared to the Tomato mask I tried, but sufficient enough to apply all over skin. Results: Ultra moisturization! Skin felt so hydrated & soft. So far not disappointed with this series so I may repurchase it. 

Cute packaging containing two eye patches, placed on the under eye. Has a subtle flowery scent. Cooling feeling that helped to relax. Eyes were less swollen & skin around eyes felt smoother. Cute & works nicely - will repurchase!!!

Did a spontaneous pore gunk cleaning using the manual steel blackhead remover, so skin had some irritations & painful red patches *cry* So I chose this Innisfree mask with hope for skin calming & soothing.  Sheet is thinner than most masks; fine delicate cotton mask immersed in Vitamin C essence. Had a nice tangerine smell. Surprisingly this mask didn't dry out as fast. Kept on till I fell asleep.  Skin condition in the morning: red patches all gone but still feel some soreness around the nose area. Pores did look smaller & skin was brighter & supple. 

This mask is meant for skin lifting & regeneration of skin texture & elasticity. Roe is basically fish eggs 😂😂😂😂😂 This is my first time trying out My Beauty Diary; the mask is quite thin but has loads of essence. The smell was weird: wasn't fishy but had a bit of chemical smell. Essence was quite watery. Results in the morning: pores became smaller & skin felt softer. No breakouts as well! Will try other MBD masks.

This mask is meant for skin soothing/purifying & highly effective hydration. This mask's essence is made with T.E.N. thermal water blended with chamomile extract & black tea ferment.  T.E.N. thermal water is found in Geumjin, in the Korean peninsula. Naturally created over time & found at 1,100 metres below ground level, this water is rich in natural and rare minerals such as selenium, vanadium and zinc & has an alkalinity similar to that of the human body. These properties combined ensure greatest and most efficient absorption into the skin.  Upon opening, had a pleasant light flower & tea smell. Mask is quite thin so had to be handled carefully to avoid tears. Fit is great, almost perfect. Kept on for about 30 minutes before it started to dry out. Applied leftover essence directly onto skin.  Results in the morning: woke up to super greasy skin! Not much hydration? Just oily, blergh... I had high expectations for this mask but it's just so-so for me. Didn't cause any breakouts but there were some redness on the cheek area. Won't repurchase as it's quite pricey.

This is an older version of this mask; they have a new packaging now (if I'm not mistaken). This mask is similar to Innisfree's Second Skin Masks. It's a bio-cellulose mask that fits perfectly to face shape to maximize absorption of hibiscus seed extracts. Upon opening, there is a pleasant flowery scent that is not overpowering. Easy to apply to face, but the mouth part is a little too big. Fits easily & doesn't slide off so was able to multitask. Kept on for about 30 minutes but the mouth area dried up quite fast & started to stick hard to the skin. Results: Noticeable effects were non-oily skin & skin felt plump and moist. Not much difference to pores but no breakouts happened. Not sure if I should repurchase, somehow cotton masks make me feel more comfortable.

This activated carbon mask is designed to help cleanse pores & balances sebum production while providing hydration to reduce blemishes & post blemish marks. Upon opening, there was a pleasant plant smell. Thick mask sufficiently soaked in essence. Fit is perfect; cooling feel. Kept on until I fell asleep. Results in the morning: Man, this mask is FREAKING AWESOME. Helped to calm my skin irritations (after I did a blackhead session) & pores were almost non-existent! Skin was supple & no oily residue. LOVE THIS & will definitely repurchase!! 

Had some minor breakouts which made me start trying COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pad. 1 jar has 70 pads & acts sort of like a toner/oil controller, suitable for oily & acne-prone skin. Contains natural BHA & Whitewillow Bark Tree to fix uneven skintone, control sebum & trouble care. I like how the smell is pure & non-chemical. Just take 1 pad & rub it all over your face accordingly. You can use both sides of the pad: Embossed side for pore cleaning, waste removal & moisturizing, while Soft side is peeling, increased skin density & control oil.  However, after using this (about 20 pads in), didn't have much effects on the breakouts.  Sometimes made it worse & skin texture became rougher.  Stop using it & ended up giving to friend.  Only giving it stars coz of smell & the convenience of using the pads.

The fine delicate cotton contains BHA to remove accumulated dead skin cells, leaving your skin texture feeling sleek & smooth. Sheet is thinner than most masks. Subtle but no specific kind of smell, pleasant. Mask didn't dry out as fast so kept on till I fell asleep. Love this one! Washed my face in the morning & with the help of my Etude House Magic Bubble Peeling Creamy Peeling Wash, the dead skin cells were easier to remove. Skin felt soft & smooth. Helped with the skin peeling off due to sunburn.

This mask aims to provide healthier & smoother skin texture. Upon opening, there is a pleasant herbal smell (close to flowery scent). It comes in a pair of masks for your feet, sort of like socks; plastic outer layer & cotton sheet layer inside. Kept it on for about half an hour & applied leftover essence up to the knees. It certainly does it's job: you'll get scented feet with a silky texture 💕💕💕💕💕 the scent & texture lasts the whole day even when you wash your feet. I like how it feels & will repurchase it.

This mask sheet contains Green Tea essence that helps to treat oily or problem skin more effectively. Upon opening, had a pleasant flowery smell. Mask sheet is a slightly thicker cotton sheet, but was a bit hard to unfold & did cause a tear. Kept on for about half an hour. Applied leftover essence on skin. Results: woke up to a no-oil finish! Skin was plump & not oily at all. Especially the T-Zone area! I feel it would be good to use as a day mask before going out; it will help to control sebum & shine. Will repurchase.

Tried out the famous April Skin Mummy Mud Mask. It's aim is to remove excess sebum & brighten skin. The mask has a cotton-like texture & is immersed in mud. Comes in two parts for the face; apply mouth section first & then eye section. I usually put my masks in the fridge but I forgot with this one; still felt cool but could have felt cooler. Fit is good on the forehead, slightly larger as you can see in the picture below, I had to fold a bit over, and the inner cheek area (as pictured), didn't have full coverage. There's also a slit in the mid nose which is kinda funny. Scent was subtle, no over-powering mud smell. Left it on for more than 30 minutes. Didn't dry so fast & not much tightening effect. After peeling off, could see some excess sebum on the cheek area & T-zone (does that mean my skin is getting less oily?? Yay!) & skin felt as soft like you would feel after applying a clay/mud mask manually. Would try this again coz I love mud/clay masks & this is kinda cool. Personally I still prefer manually applying mud masks for total coverage.
