Review: E Nature Birch Juice Hydro Cream Sheet Mask ★★★★.☆
E Nature Birch Juice Hydro Cream Sheet Mask features birch juice in a lightweight cream essence to provide intense hydration and strengthen the skin barrier. Birch juice contains 17 different amino acids and along with calendula, they work together to soothe inflamed skin. With a relaxing scent of lavender, ginger, and lemon, this mask will instantly calm mood and reveal bright, plump, and supple skin.
My skin is extra sensitive and red today. Sebum-wise, it’s feeling like normal skin with the usual slight dehydration. I’ve cleansed and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, I detected a faint fragrance. Essence had a runny-gel consistency and was cloudy. There wasn’t very much essence left in the packet after the sheet mask had been removed.
The sheet mask material felt very soft and smooth, like microfiber. According to E Nature, it is made with Skin-Fit felt fabric, an eco-friendly and bio-degradable material with superior adhesiveness that delivers the essence ingredients thoroughly.
Fit and adherence was great! The material fitted on my face like second skin. The size of the sheet was large enough to cover my entire face and the holes were perfectly positioned with my features. The material clung on really tightly to my skin throughout the entire masking process.
I took the mask off after 30 mins, it was still very damp.
The remaining essence absorbed with ease, leaving behind a slightly tacky and slightly dewy finish. The tackiness and dewiness did continue to dry down. After 15 mins, the finish was matte and non-tacky.
My skin felt intensely hydrated and moderately moisturized. This type of finish felt perfect on my combo skin. I skipped applying a moisturizer over this when I masked in the day. But for night time, I did follow up with a thick sleeping mask to prevent evaporation and dehydration overnight. As such, I think all skin types will enjoy this, though I think oily skin will like this more.
The greatest improvement I noticed was to the plumpness of my skin. My skin was bouncy and supple. It felt like water was going to burst through my cheeks if I kept poking it. My skin texture looked very smooth as a result of that intense plumping.
My skin also looked pretty bright and calm. My skin tone looked very even, as if I’d applied a layer of tinted moisturizer to cover up my blemishes.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
This was a great mask! Probably my favorite from the brand. It made my skin looked and felt very healthy. Check out more E Nature reviews here.
