Sheet masks were an alien to me when I wasn’t into much of makeup and skincare. But ever since I have found interest in skincare, sheet masks are most hyped skincare product. Korean Skincare routine is just so impossible without sheet masks so I was also interested in using these and then ordered a bunch of sheet masks from The FaceShop. So let me just you a little hint about my skin type and age so that you can relate. I am in my very early 20’s and have dry skin which is sometimes sensitive too. Now talking about the sheet masks, the face shop sheet masks are one of the most affordable and extremely good quality product which I am going to review today. So read this complete article of THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE SHEET MASKS REVIEW for complete detailed information and my experience using them. I got the face shop Calendula, potato, cucumber, rice, blueberry, lemon, pomegranate, tea tree, kelp, olive, mung beans, ginseng, lotus, and aloe face shop sheet masks.
Name of the Brand?
The Face Shop
Name of the Product?
The Face Shop Real Nature Sheet Masks
Price of The Face Shop Real Nature Sheet Mask
Water, Butylene glycol, glycerine, alcohol, (key ingredient of the variant you have eg. Bluerberry, rice, aloe etc.), Fruit extract,1,2 hexanediol, trehalose, propanediol, panthenol, sodium hyaluronate,dimethicone, allantonin, hydrogenated lecithin, caprylic, peg 60 hydrogenated castor oil, xanthan gum, carbomer, ethylhexylglycerine, potassium hydroxide, phenoxyethanol, disodium EDTA, parfum/ fragrance
Now, talking about the ingredients in details. Firstly, its water based, then, it also contains hydrating and moisturizing ingredients like glycerine and castor oil. It has the goodness of fruit extracts but it also has some ingredients which could irritate your skin like silicone, EDTA , fragrance, and also alcohol but alcohol is not always the villain. Alcohol helps in penetrating the ingredients into the skin and preventing it from drying. Also, it says that these sheet masks are free from PARABENS, TRIETHANOLAMINE, PROPYLENE GLYCOL,, TAR COLORANT and MINERAL OIL.
The packaging is quite attractive; it comes in a rectangular packaging with the pretty picture of the key ingredient of the sheet mask. It also has the name and other details printed on the front and backside along with the user instruction, ingredients, attention to be made, details regarding the manufacturing and expiry. I personally like how each and every relevant information is printed on this cute little packaging. Also minute things like the “tear me here” kind of marks are mentioned which helps to easily open up the packaging and expose the inner contents.
The Face Shop Sheet Mask- The Product
Once you open the outer cover and take out the sheet mask, it is kind of slippery and has a lot of excess serum which can be used multiple times. The sheet mask comes folded in a quarter circle and one packet has a single sheet mask. The Face shop sheet masks come with pre marked holes for eyes, lips and nose. Though every face structure is different and some might feel the size is big and others feel its short for their face. That totally depends on the individual for my face they were a bit large in size. The sheet mask is translucent and drenched in serum and it actually becomes tricky for a first timer to unfold the sheet mask.
HOW TO USE?
The method to use the sheet mask is mentioned on the backside of the outer packaging. It states-
Wash your face thoroughly and apply toner. Tear open the packet and unfold the sheet mask. Now, apply the sheet mask following all the contours of your face. PRO TIP– IF YOUR SHEET MASK DOESN’T FIT NICELY THEN MAKE SMALL CUTS ON THE EDGES WHEREVER REQUIRED. IT WILL HELP IN ADAPTING THE SHEET MASK ON THE FACE. Keep it up for 15-20 minutes and after that massage the excess serum into the face.
DO NOT WASH YOUR FACE AFTER APPLYING SHEET MASK as all the hydration goes away. Also I would advise to use the sheet mask at night so that your skin could absorb all the goodness. Do keep in mind that sheet masks are not like your regular clay masks which dry up completely. After 20 minutes also they will be a bit wet depending on the weather conditions. You can use the other side of the mask to massage your feet.
The Face Shop Sheet Masks are hands down one of the best Korean skin care sheet masks I have ever used in a budget. Though you will not notice a huge difference but yes immediate effects are seen. I will discuss about each variant separately.
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE SHEET MASK – BLUEBERRY
The sheet mask with blueberry extract creates a firming moisture barrier to revitalize and energize skin. Yes, it definitely makes your skin firm and moisturized.
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE SHEET MASK- RICE
Rice sheet mask is meant for softening and brightening rough and darkened skin. I did see an immediate brightening effect after using this.
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE SHEET MASK- CUCUMBER
It is meant for retaining moisture. My skin felt really moisturized after using the cucumber sheet mask. Also when kept in a refrigerator it gives a cooling sensation.
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE SHEET MASK- POTATO
Potato sheet mask is meant for soothing the skin and providing a cooling sensation to relieve skin that looks tired due to exposure to strong sunlight. It definitely serves the purpose very well.
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE SHEET MASK- CALENDULA
Calendula Sheet mask is again meant for soothing and yes it did sooth my skin.
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE SHEET MASK- POMEGRANATE
Pomegranate sheet mask is meant for skin firming though I am in my early 20’s but i made my mom use and she felt the difference.
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE SHEET MASK- ALOE
Aloe extract has soothing properties and I liked using it when cooled.
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE SHEET MASK- KELP
It helps in eliminating impurities and pollutants. Though as an instant result I did not feel any such thing overall using the sheet mask is a nice experience.
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE SHEET MASK- BAMBOO
It helps in rejuvenation of skin and evens out skin complexion. Now again, in 20 minutes don’t expect miracles to take place. But yes definitely a nice one to go for.
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE SHEET MASK- OLIVE OIL
It is a really good option for people with very dry and rough skin as it helps in intensely moisturizing the skin.
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE SHEET MASK- LOTUS
It is meant for smooth and radiant skin which I think is highly justified.
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE SHEET MASK- MUNG BEANS
It is meant for deep pore cleaning and yes I did feel that but after using a scrub then apply sheet mask and you will feel a difference.
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE SHEET MASK- LEMON
Lemon sheet masks are really amazing as they give an instant brightening effect. I am from a sensitive skin type but did not feel any such irritation but you can obviously do a patch test before use as I say for all the products if you have highly sensitive skin.
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE SHEET MASK- TEA TREE
Tea Tree is a really amazing ingredient for acne prone skin. I would not give you any false information but I am kind of allergic to tea tree. But that doesn’t mean that this product is bad, it’s just that it didn’t suit me and I got tiny bumps. But for others I know that they quite like this sheet mask.
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE SHEET MASK- Ginseng
Ginseng is a mushroom and honestly, I WOULD HIGHLY SUGGEST PATCH TEST for this particular one as it made my skin worst. You might like it or not it depends on your skin but I got purging on my skin after using it and it has a brow coloured serum which stained my skin too. Do let me know in the comments below if you like this or have used this and how was your experience?
Will I recommend The Face Shop sheet masks?
Well I have mixed feeling as we have our pros and cons. It does contain some ingredients which I don’t prefer using on skin as they could be harmful in the long run. Then the sheet mask is made up of a material which takes years to degrade and is not environment friendly. Also I faced a bit of issues as discussed earlier. Not the things that I like about these sheet masks are that they are quite affordable. They give a mini spa kind of feeling. They moisturize the face nicely and makes the skin so soft and brightened. But these are the instant effects which lasts a day or maximum of two days after that these effects go off. If you are looking to use these for some serious long term issues and these might not help. But overall, for instant effects and to make the skin soft and bright these are really good options.
