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 caught the familiar honey scent that most Papa Recipe sheet masks have, plus a faint addition of ginseng. Essence was clear and very runny.
The sheet mask material is made using the traditional Korean paper (Hanji) making process. It utilizes paper mulberry. The material had a medium thinness and did not come with a backing. It felt like a regular sheet mask, soft with a slight roughness and stiffness. I also noticed strands of what looked like ginseng embedded in the sheet.
Fit was moderate. The holes were too small and the overall sheet size was also small. It only covered the inner perimeter of my face.
Adherence was also moderate. There were multiple lifts resulting from the non-perfect fit. There were also lifts around the edges.
I took the mask off after 30 mins. The material around my forehead was dry while the material around my chin was slightly damp.
The remaining essence absorbed with ease. Finish was dewy and greasy at first but quickly dried down to a more comfortable look and feel.
My skin felt intensely hydrated and moisturized. On my combo skin, the light oil gave it a perfect feel. I was able to apply a gel moisturizer without feeling heavy. As such, I think all skin types will enjoy this mask.
The greatest improvement I saw was to the suppleness of my skin. My skin felt bouncy, soft, and plump. Skin texture also looked very smooth.
I think it performed averagely in the calming department. Most of my redness was still present.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
I think this mask did a wonderful job in all aspects except calming my redness. This would be a wonderful mask for people whose issues are dryness and loss of firmness. Check out more Papa Recipe reviews here.
