A friend gifted me some sheet masks some time ago.
I took this picture from my Instagram. I just realized I haven't reviewed quite a few of them. They will be coming so no worries. From these sheet masks, I have only reviewed TonyMoly Essential Mask in Aloe and Pomegranate. For this post, I will talk about the Etude House mask on the left picture.
Product Review: Etude House Essence Mask in Hyaluronic Acid

Where to purchase: stores that sell Etude House and online
Price: $1-2 for 20 mL/ 0.67 fl oz

Made in Korea

Description from the packaging: Mask sheet formulated with Vitamin C and rich essence for skin softening care.
Ingredients:
Thoughts: When it comes to Korean masks, either I love them a lot or they're just okay. I tend to like masks with a lot of essence. It seems to work better for my dry skin. At the same time, I'm always wanting to try new masks and see what's in the market. For that reason, I'm so thankful for my friend always giving me masks. :)

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I just smelled the leftover essence in the package. It's smells flowery. When I wore the mask, I did not notice any scent. Secondly, I noticed the sheet mask is a little thicker than most masks. It feels like it's made out of cloth rather than the typical sheets. I tend to not be drawn to cloth-like masks because they seem to be drier than normal sheets. When I opened the package, my initial reaction was there sure isn't a lot of essence. With my reaction, I just assumed from the bat I would not like this product. I sure was wrong! I wouldn't say it's my favorite mask but it's better than good. I was shocked how my skin felt after the mask. It felt smooth and hydrated. I was actually pretty impressed. My skin also felt good the next morning. This is definitely a one time use mask. I usually use the extra essence inside the package for the next day on my face and neck after my cleaning routine. With this mask, you definitely cannot. Lastly, I cannot remember the dimension of the mask. I remember the forehead was smaller but other than that, I cannot remember. That's why I need to blog right away instead of waiting a week *sigh*. I think from now on I should take a picture of me wearing the mask. I'm just warning you it might not be a pretty sight but I might remember more. Plus you get to see the dimension, as well as, the quality of the sheet.

Pros:
* It comes in a variety of types.
* There's no scent while wearing the mask.
* The sheet is on the thicker side; made out of cloth.
* Skin felt smooth.
* It's hydrating.
* Skin felt good the next morning.

Cons:
* Hard to find in stores.
* The dimension of the forehead is on the smaller side.
* Hardly any essence in the package.

Would repurchase: Yes.
