Aloe Mud Mask

Soo Ae

Green tea mask

01/20/2017

This Esfolio snail essence mask gave me a much needed relief and hydration. The only gripe I have is the lingering strong scent during and after the masking process. Otherwise, it worked fine for a $1.90 sheet mask!

This mask stung my skin and left me looking red, like I was drunk. It has a clean, plant-like scent though, which is the only thing I like.

This newer version is thinner and has a better fit. Essence is potent as always. It brings down my redness and leaves my skin smooth and nicely hydrated. 

This mask calms, hydrates and normalizes my irritated blotchy skin, while giving off a light clean scent, great for relaxation. The fit is perfect.

This mask states that it combats contact dermatitis and atopic eczema. Not only does it smell great, like lime-flavored popsicle, it fits well and has ZERO stinging on my rough and damaged skin. My skin is now hydrated, ALOT less red, and feels soft! 

Mask is great! As with anything Pony and Pony-related. It made my skin super dewy, bright, and healthy, I would totally go out without makeup on and it's weird because this mask aims to prep skin for makeup. The material is quite unique, it feels like a cross between cotton and gel, super silky and soft. Fit is also perfect. My skin went from Sahara Desert to Garden of Eden. Considering the price, I wouldn't use this regularly, probably only on days when my skin is being absolute bitch.

Pros: It left my skin feeling alot calmer and less red without being overly sticky. Skin is also very soft, nicely hydrated and feeling healthy. 
Cons: Material is pretty thick hence it does not fit the contours of my face well. I made some incisions and forced it to curve where it needs to. There is also a light fragrance which I thick smells like a cross between a perfume and a clean scented sheet mask. 
Overall, I still really like it considering the effects it gave me. The cons are very minimal and easy to deal with.

Since I'm still recovering from contact dermatitis, some parts of my face are still sensitive and red. The honey in this mask toned down alot of the redness and made my skin feel alot less irritated and alot healthier. However, the material is pretty thick I had to make some incisions. Even then, I spent alot of time smoothing it out to remove as many air bubbles as possible and forcing it to adhere to the contours of my face. For the price ($2), and the effect it gives, I think it's a pretty small problem to deal with. I still really enjoyed this mask. 

This has a milky essence which I prefer. The fit is okay except for the areas around the inner corners of my eyes, it just refuses to lay flat there. I had this on for about 40 mins and there was still a generous layer of essence left over. While patting it in, I noticed how soft and smooth my skin feels. This doesn't leave the skin feeling tacky. I also noticed that my skin looks dewy and plump. Most of all, my skin looks alot brighter, I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw this! I really enjoyed this mask and it's going into my HG list for sure!

Sephora

Rose Face Mask

01/18/2017

The best thing I like about it is the heavenly scent. I imagine it will be a nice treat for people who love the scent of roses. The material is super soft and easily manipulated. I had this on for about 35 minutes and it is starting to dry up. There was no essence left over. My skin feels super soft and very hydrated without any tackiness, an effect that my $1 HG sheet masks give. I don't think it did any brightening. For $6 a pop, I wouldn't repurchase even though I really enjoyed this mask. UPDATE: My skin felt dry again about 4 hours in

This feels and smells like soap and the material has a very pretty lace-like pattern. Not a fan of the fit because I had to make a few incisions and my upper lip kept getting covered by the mask, but I don't think it's a huge deal. The results are AMAZING! My skin feels intensely hydrated and soft, redness has also been reduced. I went out to run a few errands and was expecting my skin to feel stretchy at the end of the day but to my surprise, it held up against the bitter cold wind very well! Into the HG list it goes!

Considering how cheap it is (a pack of 5 for $5.99) I was honestly a little afraid to put it on my sensitive skin. But I was pleasantly surprised to see how short the ingredient list was, compared to some of the more expensive sheet masks in the market. The mask material is super soft and thin, which makes it pretty easy to smooth over my face, I did insert some slits for a better fit. The watery clear essence smells like eucalyptus to me, it is very light though. I'm happy to report that my skin did not freak out and it looks like my skin texture is alot smoother, like I have no pores! The smoothing effect far exceeds the moisturizing effect, though it still did give some decent hydration. I am liking this!
.

This mask comes in 2 pieces, top and bottom. Here's the lowdown:

Pros:

- Snail mucin!
- Easy to get it to bend to the contours of my face and remove air bubbles
- Soothed my skin and calmed down redness
- Decent hydration
- Just a slight tacky finish when massaged in .

Cons:

- Extremely slippery, hard to unfold and align the holes to my eyes, mouth and nose
- Fit wasn't great, notice how long the nose flap is
- Bottom portion kept slipping downwards
- Expensive $8

Final thoughts: It is not a bad mask, it does what it claims to do. But for the price, I expected more. .

This is a very pretty mask and it contains Vitamin C and licorice extract, both ingredients known for evening out skin tone. I'm not sure if it's the licorice or the ink, but the mask smells really pungent, like a combination of ink + elmer's glue. The fit is amazing, like it's made for my face. When I read the description on the packet "touch of lace", I was expecting this to be an actual lace mask. I admit that I was a little disappointed to see a printed lace pattern even though it's very pretty. I am personally not a fan of any printed masks because it contains ink. Gotta be real careful with my sensitive skin ya know. Results: Happy to report that there is zero stinging or sensitivity. It does what it says it will do, brighten. But nothing more. My skin is not as hydrated as I want it to be so I patted in some coconut oil. 

The material super soft material is generously soaked in sticky clear essence, which smells strongly of botanical herbs. It didn't manage to cover my entire forehead, then again, not very many sheet masks can cover my humongous forehead. My skin tingled the first 5 minutes that I had this on, I was so ready to rip it off and wash my face but decided to wait it out anyway. The tingle went away very quickly and I left it on for an hour. It was still wet at the end of the hour. This left a sticky finish after massaging it into my skin. My redness is mostly gone and skin feels super hydrated. Two thumbs up!

This contains peppermint, chamomile, blueberry and (naughty naughty) alcohol. I like that the material is super soft and gave me great fit and adherence. BUT it has a strong perfumey smell and only contains 15ml (not the usual 25ml) of clear essence. This lightly tingled my sensitive skin throughout the 25 minutes of wear and it is pretty much dried up. I totally get it since it is meant for busy professionals who want quick solutions. Results: My skin felt hydrated, bouncy and less puffy but it did leave behind a tacky finish. I would've skipped moisturizer in the summer but felt that I needed an extra something something since it's so overcast and cold today. This addresses a pretty specific concern so if you've had a long night and had to get up early for work the next day, I'd say go for it.

This It's Skin The Fresh Sheet Mask Blueberry was such a let down, there is no difference in my skin except for a light hydration. It would not adhere and kept trying to detach itself from my face. At the 20-minute mark it was starting to dry out. It did smell wonderful and did not irritate my skin. But overall, meh.

Contains snail mucin, ginseng and (boo!) parabens (thank God I did not develop a rash from it). The material is pretty thick and refuses to adhere to my skin. There is no visible difference in my skin after masking, just some light hydration, which pretty much disappeared after 2 hours even though I sealed it in with a moisturizer. The material had a pretty embossed pattern and the essence did smell strongly of ginseng, which I like. But overall, it wasn't good.

It contains avocado oil, meadowfoam, and licorice extracts. This updated mask material is pretty soft and thin hence the adherence is amazing. I also noticed a change in the positioning of the eye and mouth holes, it used to be a bad fit for me and would bunch up in the middle of my face. This newer version fits my face to perfection! It is soaked in milky lotiony essence (my fave) which has a very light flowery fragrance. 45 minutes later, there is still a good amount of essence left on my skin. Pat pat pat, there is a slight tacky finish, which is perfect for me in the winter. My skin feels very hydrated, less red and healthy. My only gripe is that there is no brightening effect, but it doesn't claim to do that anyway.

This mask smells like real oats, but better. It is made of silk so it's super thin and has great fit and adherence. It contains hyaluronic acid, oats, cucumber and peony root extracts. Word of warning, it does contain methylisothiazolinone which may cause allergic reactions for some, my sensitive skin did not freak out from this though. 45 mins in and it's still wet. Just like actual oats, this gave me a brighter, smoother and hydrated complexion without any tackiness. My only gripe is that the hydration wasn't enough for me, especially in this weather. But nothing a little moisturizer can't solve.

The gist is, this is just an okay mask to me. I'm experiencing dry flakey skin from all the traveling. This mask managed to slightly hydrate my skin but do not do anything to my dry patches whatsoever. My skin still felt slightly stretchy after sealing it off with a moisturizer. Redness was also slightly reduced. This is great for people with dry skin in a tropical climate.

This mask is targeted at peeps who are suffering from excessive sebum, dead skin cell buildups, unclean skin, and dull-darkened skin. It contains (ordered by ranking on the ingredients list) maple sugar (a natural AHA), Niacinamide, soy bean, volcanic ash. I'm a little nervous about the AHA given my sensitive skin. But I'm excited about all the other ingredients. Made from bamboo fiber and soaked in clear gooey essence, this mask feels pretty soft and has a medium thickness, it's definitely not as soft and thin as @sooae.official Purifying Black Charcoal Mask. It has the typical @leadersusa sheet mask scent and fits my face perfectly. However, to my horror, this tingled like a b-word. I decided to ride it out and bust out my tube of cortisol in case my skin did flare up. I went away after about 15 minutes. I had this on for 30 mins and it was still pretty wet. The tube of cortisol felt lonesome, I didn't need it at all! My skin looks glowy, pore size was just slightly reduced and PIH are still there, but hey, my pores were in a pretty nasty condition, so I'm happy with this result. The most amazing thing was my skin feels ultra smooth! The bumpy-ness was gone! It did leave behind a sticky finish, so this is probably better for nighttime use. Overall, I'm very satisfied!

This hydrogel mask contains rose extract, which has skin plumping and hydration properties. It comes in 2 pieces and has a faint powdery rose scent. Despite constantly slipping down my face, it fits okay (notice how there's a flap covering our nostrils) holds moisture very well and is still nicely hydrated 1 hour into masking. Most hydrogel masks would've dried out by now. After masking, my skin feels very hydrated, supple and slightly sticky. Due to it's tendency to keep slipping downwards, slightly sticky feeling after masking and costing $5 per piece, I would think this is better suited for occasional nighttime masking.

This Tony Moly Panda's Dream Eye Patch is so adorable I can't find even. I like that it extends upwards to my eyelids and downwards to my cheeks without any irritation to my sensitive skin. My eye area feels soft and plump.
