Every time I see a Korean girl, I feel ‘God, what do I do to get skin as flawless as that’. I envy the gorgeous glow they have on their face but if we deep dive into their skincare regimen we would know, they work really hard for it. As much as I know, they are very particular about their skincare routine and very picky about the products they wanna use which is why Korean beauty products are world famous. Recently I discovered a website skin18.com which has some amazing Korean skincare products and offers a huge range of sheet masks (awww I just cant tell you how much I love using them ) I got a freebie package which included 8 masks and 3 serum syringes. Today I will be reviewing two of the masks and rest will be coming soon
I tried their Animal cutie Anti-aging mask and Aloe soothing Waterful oasis mask and was pleasantly surprised with how well they worked on my skin. Let me share my detailed view about each one of them now. Keep on reading..
Animal Cutie Anti-aging Mask Horse Oil Mask Pack
“Main features SOC animal cutie mask pack includes extra moisturizing, whitening, strengthen skin immunity system, anti wrinkle, increase elasticity for bouncy skin, balance skin for less sensitive level, anti-aging, nutritional supplements, deep clean and much more..
On top of the natural facial mask sheet non-toxin natural ingredient ink made with plants was used to print animal’s pattern. This not only add much fun to the home facial process, it can also put o additional nutrition to the mask sheet.“
As cute as this mask looks from the outside, as cute it is inside. The mask has a horse face imprinted on it about which I was a little skeptical before but when I read that it was made with an ink extracted form plants, all my fears just vanished and I was all set to become horse faced The sheet was drenched with the essence which had a mild engrossing fragrance. You need to cleanse the face properly, put the mask on and leave it for 15-20 mins. I applied it evenly on my face, sat back relaxed, waiting for it to sink into my skin. It fitted my face perfectly and looked really cute haha. It felt nourishing and revitalizing throughout the time I kept it on. I removed it after the prescribed time and I was left behind with soft and supple skin. There was still a lot of essence left in the sheet so I just patted that on to my neck and arms as I din’t want even a drop of it to get wasted. I don’t know if it really helped with wrinkles or not because one application cant do any magic but it sure felt great. My skin had a visible glow which I usually see when I get a clean up done A thumbs up for this one
Price : US$ 2.50 / 1 sheet
Aloe Soothing Waterful Oasis Mask
“This whitening functional mask sheet contains essence derived from natural aloe that soothes irritated skin and provides abundant moisture to create radiating and smooth skin.
Aloe prevents freckles, pigmentation, or liver spots and increases collagen in the corium. It moisturises dry skin, controls sebum secretion to prevent oily skin, tightens pores and controls sebum secretion balance even in combination skin to maintain pH levels. Also aloe is absorbed into skin quicker than water,relieveing skin.
Niacinamide acts on the enzyme tyrosinase which creates melanin that causes freckles to strongly suppress the creation of melanin, to clarify, improve dullness, reduce freckles, soften rough skin etc.”
This mask doesn’t look as fancy when compared with the animal cutie face mask which has horse face printed on it. It is a plain white sheet with dripping essence which seems pretty much similar to any other sheet mask that you may have used. Some days back my skin badly reacted to tomato pack I made for myself knowing that it doesn’t suit me much. I developed rashes and tiny pimples mainly on my jaw area and neck ( not that I don’t have them at all *rofl*) and I was trying to avoid almost everything on my face. But then I thought I will try this aloe soothing mask and see if it can help me out with my current skin issue and boy it did help. I used it the usual way- cleansing the face, applying the mask and then removing it after 20 minutes. The fluid in it is quite runny so you have to be a little quick while you are holding it. This mask gave a cooling sensation which instantly relieved my irritated skin. It is very soothing and is a sure shot winner for me. It nourishes the skin beautifully so you really do not need to moisturize post usage. The only con I was able to find was that it felt a little sticky to me however the horse oil face mask doesn’t have any such issue. Again love it
Price : US$ 0.85 / 1 sheet
