The tea tree mask is designed to sooth sensitive, breakout-prone skin.
Containing 2000mg of tea tree extract, this is probably the most among all other tea tree masks. Ingredients list looks good! Tea tree leaf extract is listed right after water, followed by a bunch of botanical extracts like grapefruit and peach. Hyaluronic acid is also present to hydrate skin. Sensitive skin users please note that alcohol is present.
My skin is feeling normal today, except two gigantic pimples on my right cheek. Please be prepared for a close-up of said pimples. You have been warned.
They’re currently red headless bumps and very painful to the touch. I’ve already cleansed, toned and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, this gave off a very strong tea tree scent. I personally really like this scent but if you don’t, you might find it too overwhelming. The medium thick sheet material felt like wet notebook paper. Thick, but easily tearable.
Fit was great but adherence was meh around the contours. I had this on for about 45 mins, it was just starting to dry out. There were tons of essence left in the packet so I added that to my skin and rubbed all of it in. Took a hot minute to dry down to a tacky finish, which is unusual for an acne-targeting mask. The tackiness did eventually go away in a couple of hours.
The redness around the bumps went down in diameter but the main occupants were still big and angry.
The rest of my skin looked good! Pores were minimized yet hydrated and skin tone looked even. No irritation to my sensitive skin either.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
Due to the tacky finish, I’d think this will be great for winter, but not for summer. Considering how affordable this is, I would totally repurchase for situations like this.
