This week I tried three new masks. Two of them were sheet masks and the third one was a normal mask. And they all did a great job.
I got the Innisfree and Balea sheet masks in a giveaway that Petra held on her blog Adjusting Beauty. And the third one was sent to me by L’Occitane Slovenija. Now let me start and you’ll see what was my experience with all of them.
Green Tea -Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask
This was the first mask I tried and WAW, what a hydration and moisturisation.
My biggest concern with this mask was the alchohol it contains. I smelled it the second I put the sheet on my face, but then the smell faded away and it didn’t dry my skin at all.
It says on the package to leave it on for 10-20 minutes and I had it on for 20 minutes. The size of the sheet was fitting my face, except it could have been a bit bigger on the sides. You know, to cover whole cheeks and sideburns.
The mask was very cooling when I had the sheet on (I suppose this is the doing of the alchohol). And when I took it of, bags under my eyes were gone. I was very happy to see that, because not many products can do that. This time I used it in the evening, so next time I will use it in the morning. And I instantly noticed how well my skin was hydrated and nourished. And how plump it was!
Flash Moisture Mask* – L’Occitane Pivoine Sublime
This isn’t a sheet mask, it is a leave in mask, so I was a bit concerned about that. But I decided to try it anyway, because it say it is for all skin types. Usually this type of masks give me blemishes, pimples. But this one didn’t.
It says to apply an even thin layer all over your face and leave it on for five minutes. So I managed to leave enough product for a second use. So you can get two uses out of that packaging. I’d say it’s a very small packaging, but very useful for travelling.
The mask moisturised my skin very well and since I used it in the morning I thought of not going through with my morning routine and just leave it at that. But in the end I did apply all of the products I use in the morning and this mask proved to be a great base for skin care. However, at the end of the day I felt like my skin was a bit extra oily and I believe the mask was the reason for that. So if your skin is on the oily side you might wan’t to be careful with it.
Oh, and have I mentioned how great it smells, like all the products from Pivoine line.
Vital Sheet Mask With Argan oil, Hyaluronic Acid and Provitamin B5 – Balea
This mask was moisturising, but not as the one from Innisfree. I left it on my skin for 15 minutes, although it says 10. The sheet of the mask was a bit bigger then the previous one, so it fitted my face better.
I used this one in the evening too, so my skin was well nourished for the night time rest.
It still was a great mask, but I wasn’t as impressed as with the one from Innisfree.
I have some masks from Missha coming my way way, so I will try them too and will write my reviews here. And I will definitely get me new masks from Innisfree, I loved this one, it was my favourite of the bunch and I highly recommend it to all of you.
Do you have any suggestions for me to try? Let me know, because I am on the hunt for sheet masks!
