     I have always wanted to try sheet masks which are famous in Korean & Japanese skin care but never tried one as I could not get it in India and when Innisfree opened its first store in Delhi,  I got hold of it.  I chose the Olive & Green tea variant and they have many other variants to choose.  If you are new to the concept of sheet masks, they are like sheets in the shape of the face leaving holes for the eye and lips and saturated with serum.  You just apply put it over your face, leave for some time then remove the sheet and just massage the remaining serum into the skin.  It is so easy to use as there is no preparation required, no washing or scrubbing involved. The sheet might not fit exactly to your face, but you can adjust it and it pretty much covers your face. They also have eye flaps, so you close and cover your eyes, but you can either tear them or fold them down if you do not want to put in on your eyes.  I have oily combination skin, I do feel my skin gets stretched and dry due to the harsh winters and indoor heating system here in Turku, Finland where I live. The sheet masks leave my skin highly moisturized as they are saturated with serum and I usually do not use a moisturizer after this.  It might feel heavy for oily skin people or in winters but you can use it before bed, remove it and it will be a substitute for your night cream.  The olive one felt more moisturizing than the green tea but I think the level of moisturization did not differ so much.  My skin felt somewhat sticky for atleast around 30 mins even after massaging the serum well but the feeling faded completely afterwards.  So, it is best to use it before going to bed.  Both the masks had intense alcoholic smell as soon as you open the pack, but it just goes away in a few minutes and does not bother you after you put the masks on to your face.  The recommended time is 10-20 mins, but I usually leave it for 30 minutes and the sheet do not dry up, it will still feel moist when you remove it.  These does not do anything miracles for your skin, but it just leaves them very much moisturized and you can use it now and then when you feel your skin need more nourishment.  I am planning to buy some other variants  too to intensely moisturize my skin in winters.

Pros:

They are very good travel companions as you can just carry them and use them anywhere

Can be used by people with all skin types for that extra nourishment

Moisturizes the skin well

Leaves the skin soft & supple

Ingredient list looks good

Very simple to use and there is no need of preparation or washing off

Cons:

Availability is a major issue as they have only one store in Delhi and it is not widely available in online Indian shopping websites

Feel sticky for some time

Does not smell pleasant, smell alcoholic, but it fades away

    I have heard so much about this brand. I want to try one someday. My only concern is does they contain alcohol?

    • Preethy 2 years ago

      They contain alcohol and also smell of alcohol as soon as you open the pack, I dislike that but they do not dry the skin instead leave it hydrated
