A friend gifted me two sheet masks from Tony Moly. If you don't know Tony Moly, it's a famous brand in Korea. They sell everything from skincare to cosmetics.

Thoughts: I looked on the Korean, as well as, the English version of Tony Moly website and I could not find anything on these products. Either they're out of stock or discontinued. With that said, you can still buy it on other websites.
Here's a closer look at the aloe mask. It's suppose to be moisturizing and soothing. It actually came at the perfect time. The past week my face has been acting up. It's dry, red, and a slight burning sensation. I've been using a lot of new products. It can be a combination of them or just one product. I think I pinpointed the problem but I will need to test it out. Life of a beauty blogger. Anyways, this came at the perfect time. It really did sooth my dry, aching skin. Towards the end of wearing this mask, my skin felt moisturized and calm. Of course, the next morning my skin went back to the normal state but less dry and redness.
This is pomegranate and actually the first to try out of the two. It's a firming mask. I'm not too sure if I noticed any firmness.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, the scent does not fit the mask. Pomegranate is strong and smells more floral than fruity. Aloe is less floral but still smells like a flower than a plant. I prefer aloe over pomegranate, but that's just my opinion. Secondly, the dimension of the mask is good except for the forehead. I think they could be made it bigger. I have a small forehead compared to the rest of the face. Even with a small forehead, it still was smaller than the area. The other part fit perfectly even the nose. Lastly, aloe is more hydrating than pomegranate. After removing the masks, my skin sucked up the serum quickly. I had to apply moisturizer afterwards. Then again it might be because of my skin not being in their normal state. The super dryness needed hydration.

Pros:
* Comes in a variety of scents.
* Thickness of the mask is perfect; it's not too thick and not too thin.
* Good amount of essence.
* Aloe was hydrating.
* Skin sucked up the essence.
* Aloe calmed my super dryness.

Cons:
* Hard to find in stores.
* Need to search online to purchase.
* Both smelled like flowers.
* The dimension of the forehead is small.

Would repurchase: Maybe, but in aloe only.

I keep thinking I should use sheet masks more often whenever I see a review like this. Unless I show allergic reaction (which is very rare), they all do positive things for me skin. The problem is my laziness, I guess. :o
