My friend gifted me two sheet masks from The Face Shop. She gave me Real Nature Mask Olive and Real Nature Mask Pomegranate.

Thoughts: First of all, I looked on the website and I'm not 100% sure but I think they changed the designs of these sheet masks.
Here's the original design for Real Nature Mask Olive.
Now the new design.
The original for Real Nature Mask Pomegranate.
The new design. Again, like I said I'm not 100% sure if they changed the designs. I just assumed from the name of the masks.

Now for my overall opinion... I did not take a picture of the masks itself, as well as, the sheet masks on myself. I think they all look alike. The only differences with all sheet masks are the thickness and dimension. They all look white and some are more on the sheer side. If you like me to take pictures, please tell me. I will for future reviews. With that said, the sheet masks are on the medium size when it comes to thickness. I've seen thin masks and they tend to rip if you're not careful. I've also seen thick masks especially the gel type. This was a perfect thickness in my opinion. It wasn't hard to unfold, as well as, it wasn't attached to a paper backing.

When it comes to the dimension, I thought the forehead needed to be longer. I already have a small forehead and it's not recommended for me to have bangs. Imagine if it was small for me, probably would be small for most people. I also thought the nose area should be wider. I have wide nose and it did not cover everything. Other than those areas of the face, everything else was good.

To be honest, I was pretty excited to try these masks. I especially was curious of the scents. Let me tell you, they don't smell at all. It's fragrance-free. This is great for people who are sensitive to scents or doesn't enjoy any fragrance.

To end my overall opinion and it should be the most important aspects of a sheet masks, the essence. It's not rich with serum to the point it's dripping as you take it out of the package, but it's has a decent amount to last the whole time you have it on. I tend to wear my masks for 30 minutes. It's recommended for 15-20 minutes, but I tend to wear it bit longer. I just feel with my dry skin, I need to get as much hydration as possible. I also like that the product doesn't dry out my skin after the usage. I tend to do my masks at night before I head to bed. I let the serum and whatever is left over sink into my skin overnight. When I wake up in the morning, my skin is from the result of the masks. My face felt smooth and it looked hydrated.

* It comes in a variety of flavors.
* Medium thickness; does not rip and does not need paper backing.
* It has no scent.
* Good amount of essence.
* The essence does not dry out while wearing the masks.
* Hydrating/moisturizing.
* Makes your skin feel smooth.

* Hard to find in stores unless you have The Face Shop around.
* Forehead area is smaller than it should be.
* Nose isn't wide enough.

Would repurchase: Maybe.

The dimension of the sheet mask should be fine for you especially your nose. You have such straight, perfect nose. It's not like my wide one... lol~ :P

Thank you for the detailed review! I tried a lot of these, and they were pretty decent on my skin. ^^ The pomegranate one is one of my favourites!

Ahleessa said...

They are pretty good! What brand of masks do you recommend?

June L. said...

I highly, highly recommend "C+F" masks and "Dermal" masks! They're cheaper than Etude, Tonymoly, HolikaHolika, The Face Shop, etc.
The ingredients are much more simpler (and familiar), and extremely effective! ^_^ I'd recommend Ginseng masks as well, they are brilliant and are seriously skin changing.

Ahleessa said...

Oh wow! You know so much about Korean masks. You are the bomb! :) Where do you buy your masks for cheap? Is Ginseng masks the brand name or the scent?
