When I ordered from Missha end of last year, they gave me a sheet mask. I decided to review it not only for my readers, but for myself as well. I have a tendency not to remember how I felt about the sheet masks. Being able to look at my reviews on my blog helps me to either to order some more or not. I hope it helps you as well! :)

Thoughts: I love receiving sheet masks, because it gives me an opportunity to try things I really wouldn't have. Sometimes I'm blessed to find new products I love, and know to order it for the future. I'm thankful for the opportunity to try this mask.

First of all, I will start with the size of the sheet mask. I'm not too sure why the width of the sheet mask is so wide (ear to ear). It covered my hair on the side of my forehead, as well as, the side of my face. Since it covered the hair, a minute or two into wearing the sheet mask it would fall and not grab onto the hair. It was extremely uncomfortable since I was doing stuff on the internet while wearing the sheet mask. This mask is made for people who lay on their bed resting. It's definitely not made for someone not resting like myself. :X

The length of the nose part is also short. It did not fully cover my nose which is shocking since I do not have a bridge. I have the typical, flat Asian nose.

Other than the size, I'm pretty content with the fabric of the sheet mask. Some masks leave residue from the fabric. I can feel the cotton on my face once I'm done with the sheet mask. This did not!

Secondly, I will talk about the feel of the sheet mask. It's very refreshing, cooling and I can feel the essence. Some masks are dry even from the start because it does not have enough essence. That's not an issue with this mask. It lasted the whole 30 minutes of using this mask. I was even able to pat the essence left over from the sheet mask onto my skin. The only thing is a lot of masks have essence left over in the package. You can use the left over essence on your neck and chest. The package did not have enough to pat it onto my neck. If I can wish for something, I would wish it had a little bit more essence so I can use it for my neck and chest.

Lastly, I was pretty content with the result. My skin felt soft and glow-y right after the mask, as well as, the next morning. It also hydrated my face.

* You need to lay down for the mask; get real rest.
* Good fabric; does not leave residue.
* Good enough essence for the face.
* No scent.
* Leaves skin soft.
* Hydrating.
* Skin looks glow-y.

* Width of the mask is too wide.
* Length of the nose is too short.
* Does not stick on the hair.
* Not good for multi-taskers.
* Not enough essence left over in the package.

Would repurchase: No.

Speaking of sheet masks, I received some from a friend and family that I got to try out.
Luna gave me My Scheming sheet masks in Camellia Japonica Hydrating (beige),  Bulgarian Rose Whitening (pink), Bird's Nest Collagen (light blue), and Puli Ginjo Sake Kasu (yellow). I've been curious about My Scheming masks. I heard great things about this brand, and now I can understand why. They fit great on the face, hydrating, and lots of essence to work with.

Thank you Luna!!! :)

My sister-in-law got me this, ESL Essence Mask Pack in Coenzyme Q10. I've been curious about this since I've seen this frequently at the Korean market. There's 10 masks inside the packet. I noticed it's dry on top and it gets more moist as you get closer to the bottom where the essence is. It's an alright mask, but I wish it was moist from top to bottom. It also fits well to the face and I can feel the hydration.

Thank you sis-in-law!!! :)

I received this Physicians Formula Eyeshadow Palette from the Beautylish Event I attended last year.
I debated back then if I should keep it or not. The colors are gorgeous and I heard this one is extremely pigmented. It sounded good, but on the other hand I hardly use purple. :/ I forgot all about this until recently. I think it needs a better home than with me. For that reason, I want to give this away to one lucky reader who will use it more than I ever will. :)
The palette opens sideways and comes with a sponge.
Here's a closer look of the colors. It has different ranges of purple with one green.
