When I picked up my Fruit Bowl Hand Cream from The Face Shop, I also picked up 2 sheet masks to try.
One was the Herbal Therapy Geranium & Everlasting Mask Sheet. It was meant to awaken dull skin and get a youthful glow back. Promising.
The scent of geranium is very strong. Fortunately, its a scent I like and find relaxing so I enjoyed this mask. The texture of the essence was watery and the mask was well saturated but not dripping. Fit wise, I find that the mask is rather narrow. Its too long for my face but not wide enough to reach all the way to the sides so the bits by my ears were denied the benefits of this mask.
After about 20 minutes, my skin felt soft, cool, hydrated and nice, for want of a better word. I did not get a “youthful glow back” but then I wasn’t expecting it. I followed up with my regular night moisturizer and went to bed happy. I will repurchase this one before the sale ends because it makes me happy and relaxed.
A week later, I tried the other mask I bought – Essential Collagen Mask Sheet. This one professes to hydrate and firm up skin with collagen.
The fit of this mask is the same i.e. long so it hangs under my chin but not wide enough so the sides of my face is deprived of the essence. The Essential Collagen Mask Sheet is supposed to “promote firmer more resilient skin”.
To say I disliked this is putting it lightly. The floral powdery scent was strong, the mask felt sticky (albeit not dripping wet) and it left my face feeling sticky and ick. I couldn’t help it. I ripped it off after 10 minutes and I washed off whatever essence there was left because I couldn’t go to bed with that smell stuck on my face. Will never buy again. Ever.
I cannot remember the prices. I think they were about RM6.90 and RM9.90 respectively. Do correct me if I’m wrong. It was a while ago and I lost my receipts.
Pros: Affordable, Hydrates skin
Cons: Strong fragrance, Collagen mask was icky and sticky
If you are at TheFaceShop website and can’t seem to find its masks, look under “Pack” Apparently that’s what masks are known as in Korea.
If you have tried sheet masks from The Face Shop, which do you like?
