Review: Etude House 0.2mm Air Therapy Green Tea Mask ★★★☆☆
Etude House 0.2mm Air Therapy series consists 15 varieties like strawberry, lemon, blueberry, damask rose, etc. Find my reviews here. These masks are made of 0.2mm super thin hypoallergenic cotton and is “light and comfortable like air!” They are also 7-free and only contain EWG green grade ingredients. They come in 3 different types of essences, in order of viscosity: moist runny essence; ampoule essence; and emulsion essence. Most of them have alcohol listed pretty high up on the ingredient list though.
This green tea mask has a moist runny essence and claims to moisturize and soothe skin. Green tea extract is listed as the 10th ingredient on the list. It also contains a bunch of botanical extracts and carbomer, which may be a sensitizing chemical to some.
My skin is feeling very dry and red today. I’ve already cleansed, toned and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
The sheet itself is super soft and thin and drenched in clear watery essence. It was oh so drippy.
Fit was mostly okay though I wish the holes could be bigger. Adherence was A++. There were tons of leftover essence which I applied onto the sheet mask halfway through to prolong the masking session. I had this on for about 50 mins and it was starting to dry out around the outer edges.
My skin felt soft and hydrated and looks dewy. But I did not see any improvement to my redness. It left behind a slightly sticky finish, but disappeared about an hour later. My skin got drier as the day went by and I had to re-hydrate my skin with a cream.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
This was just an okay mask. I will not repurchase since the Damask Rose variety is sooo much better and both cost the same. Check out more Etude House reviews here.
