Around September/October of every year, Los Angeles has their annual Korean festival. You can read my post for the Korean festival I attended in 2010 and 2012. I try my best to go every year. They just have really good deals on Korean products from beauty to food. Unfortunately, I did not not blog about it last year (2013) but I did attend.
This was my haul from Nature Republic. I only purchased the Aloe Vera Soothing Gel and Given By Nature Mask. The rest were samples with purchase.
Where to purchase: Nature Republic store and online at naturerepublic.com
Price: $1 for 23 mL/ 0.78 fl oz
Made in Korea
Description on the package: The facial mask sheet soothes and hydrates the skin with aloe vera extract.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, this smells heavenly! It does not smell like aloe, as well as, plant-like. It smells sweet and fresh. If I had to choose what it smells like, I have to say cucumber but than again I'm not 100% sure. Not only did it smell nice, the scent lasted a good amount of time. I would say about 5-10 minutes. It all depends on the individual and how long it takes to get use to the scent. Personally, scents linger long on me compared to most people. Secondly, the dimension of the mask is doable. The forehead is a good size and the wide is wider than most masks. Even though the width is wide, I think it's great. It covers the jawline and I feel like it hydrates my chin. Next, I love that this mask has so much essence. What I noticed with a lot of Korean masks, they tend to be just slightly moist. I noticed after 30 minutes of wearing sheet masks, they pretty much stuck on my face because my skin suck up the essence. With Given By Nature, I did not have to worry about that. It was moist and even after removing the mask, I could pat the essence on the face. I also used the extra essence in the mask for the next couple of days. Lastly, my skin looked hydrated. I noticed the fine lines were diminished right after the mask and less noticeable the next day. I hate to say this and out of all the Korean masks I have tried, this has to be one of my favorites.
