Review: Etude House 0.2mm Air Therapy Lemon 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 lemon mask has a moist runny essence and claims to brighten skin with niacinamide and 2,500 ppm of lemon fruit extract.

Before masking

My skin is feeling slightly dry and looking a little dull. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.

Out of the packet, I caught a ginger-ish scent, and a little lemon scent if I sniffed really hard. Essence was clear, watery and very drippy. The super soft and thin sheet did not come with a backing, which made unfolding a little challenging.

During masking

Fit was slightly unsatisfactory. Eye and mouth holes were too small, hence the awkward facial expression. The sheet was also too wide, I folded the sides frontwards to avoid nourishing my scalp. Adherence was great! This started drying out at the 15 min mark, I poured the remaining essence onto my face to prolong the masking session. I had it on for a total of 40 mins.

After masking

My skin looked moderately bright and calm. Redness did not completely disappear but PIH was lightened quite a bit. Hydration was great! Essence dried down tacky at first then disappeared in about an hour. My skin looked very healthy and plump.

Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.


This was a great mask but my favorite variant from this line is still Damask Rose, as it did what this one did and more. Check out more Etude House reviews here.
