Review: Innisfree My Real Squeeze Sheet Mask – Manuka Honey ★★.☆
Innisfree’s new My Real Squeeze Sheet Mask collection is their latest earth-friendly innovation. The sheet mask collection comes in 3 different consistencies: water (light & fresh), essence (deeply hydrating), and cream (intensely nourishing).
There are a total of 18 variants, of which the new ones are:
This Manuka Honey variant has an essence-type serum and 10,000 ppm of honey extract. Honey has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. With the addition of centella asiatica extract, this sheet mask is great for acne-prone skin. All ingredients went through the cold-pressed extraction method to maximize their benefits. The entire line is free of phenoxyethanol, a type of preservative that may cause skin sensitivities to some people who have known allergies.
My skin is feeling dehydrated and slightly flushed. I’ve cleansed, exfoliated, and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, I caught a faint alcohol + honey scent. It reminded me of Papa Recipe sheet masks.
The new biodegradable material felt soft and was way thinner than the previous It’s Real Masks. It did not come with a backing. Essence was clear and had a runny consistency but wasn’t dripping from the sheet mask as I was putting it on.
Fit was great! It was just the right size for my face without any excess on the sides. The holes were perfectly lined up with my features. My only tiny gripe was the size of the eye holes, I wish they were just a tad taller. I have medium-sized eyes and I still found them too small. The little tabs on either sides of my forehead were meant for easy application and removal of the sheet mask. I personally find those nice to have, but not a must-have.
Adherence was great! Fold lines stayed down with no air bubbles surfacing through the entire masking session.
I took the mask off after 25 mins, it was still damp.
The remaining essence took awhile to dry down and absorb. After 15 mins, it still left behind a dewy and tacky finish,
My skin felt intensely hydrated and moisturized. I did not noticed any other effects.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
Eventually, I wipes down my face with a toner-soaked cotton pad. My combo skin felt greasy and stifling under such a thick finish. As such, I wouldn’t recommend this for oily skin. Dry skin might really enjoy this though. Check out more Innisfree reviews here.
