Review: Missha Pure Source Cell Sheet Mask (Green Tea) ★☆☆☆☆
Hello beautiful! I’m still on a hunt for soothing and soothing masks. I’ve heard alot of great things about Missha but never got round to trying out their sheet mask. So here goes.
This Missha Pure Source Cell Sheet Mask (Green Tea) contains twice fermented natural ingredients like green tea, phytic acid, and hexadimethrine chloride, and is made of “compact cell fabric” (whatever that means). It claims to keep sensitive skin moist and calm. Exactly what I need. A 7-pack is available on Amazon for $9.90. This post contains an affiliate link.
Here is the usual before masking mugshot. Notice my pink “eyeshadow”, how pretty. My skin is currently blotchy, irritated, sensitive and dry. I’ve already prepped my skin, leaving out exfoliation to avoid further aggravation.
Upon pulling the sheet mask out of the pack, it is nicely soaked in clear essence which smells like a minty ointment. It does not come with a back but it does unfold very easily.
I do not like the fit of this mask at all. Notice my uncovered forehead and chin, add excess fabric below the chin. This is after making some incisions. Upon slapping it on, the pinkish areas on my face, namely my eyelids and sides of nose started to sting lightly. It was bearable so I kept it on for the recommended 20 minutes. The stinging lasted the entire masking process, as well as the medicinal scent.
Instead of feeling relieved with the mask on, as with many other soothing and calming masks, I felt relieved with the mask off. The stinging sensation was pretty uncomfortable. Although dewy and smooth, notice how red my entire face is. Here is a side by side of the before and after pictures for comparison.
For a sheet mask that claims to soothe and calm sensitive skin, I think it fails terribly. It might be cheap and hydrating, I don’t think it’s worth the discomfort. People who do not have sensitive skin might like this but there are other better masks out there for the same price and so I will neither recommend nor repurchase this.
