My skin is feeling dehydrated and slightly sensitive on a rather warm day. I’ve cleansed, exfoliated, and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Upon opening the packet, I caught a mild floral fragrance.
I was taken aback when I stuck my fingers in to pull out the sheet mask. Instead of the usual wet fabric, I felt a slippery jello-like material. It was a challenge to try to pull the sheet out as it was slimey and pretty heavy. Apparently, the material is a special Lan Seal sheet which has faster and better absorption than sponge to help deliver the active substances and to increase the skin’s absorption. Imagine a sheet mask made of firm jello, this was it.
Albeit having 30 ml of it, there wasn’t any essence left in the packet. I’m guessing all of the essence was in the highly absorbent sheet.
Fit was great! The holes were of good size and lined up with my features perfectly. The sheet was also large enough to cover my entire face.
However, adherence was pretty bad. The sheet bunched up and lifted in many places, especially around the nose and mouth. I made a couple of cuts in the material around the nose and chin to get it to grip better. At least it wasn’t falling off and stayed put for the most part.
I’d been anticipating a cooling sensation but it did not come. There wasn’t even a minty sensation. Temperature wise, it just felt like a regular sheet mask.
I took the mask off after 30 mins, it was still slightly damp but the sheet was hanging loose off my chin.
There was a significant amount of essence left to pat in. Finish was slightly tacky and looked silky.
My skin felt very hydrated and moderately moisturized. There was a moderate reduction in redness and pigmentation but my skin texture improved significantly. Pores looked smaller and fine lines were plumped, giving way to a smooth and even skin texture. Skin looked healthy and radiant overall. My combo skin required a gel moisturizer to seal everything in. Dry skin might need a thicker cream and oily skin might want to wipe down the excess essence with a toner-soaked cotton pad.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
I’m impressed with this sheet mask! This is the first time a Missha skincare product has worked well on my skin. Despite the lack of a cooling sensation, I’d still repurchase this for the smooth and radiant skin it gave me.
