My Thoughts

First, I must admit that I've been spoiled by the amazing quality of Beauty Clinic masks which truly do feel silky and fit my face like a dream. Therefore, this mask material and shape just can't compare. However, this mask pack is also of high quality. There's actually a small portion of essence at the bottom of the mask that you apply first, before placing the sheet mask onto your face. I found the amount of both essence and serum to be nearly perfect for my face and used the leftover on my neck and a quick swipe along my arms and legs.

I didn't experience any bad reactions such as tingling, stinging, redness, etc. When I removed the mask, my face just looked very nice and healthy. My skin tone was evened out with no signs of redness, and my skin felt soft, smooth, and firm. I was very happy that my skin didn't feel sticky as it's been extremely hot here lately (100 degrees!), which has made my skin more combination type and oily and caused me to be hesitant to use face masks, especially since mine are usually aimed at providing deep moisture. Luckily, my face felt perfectly balanced after using this mask.

Would I repurchase?

Yes. I think is is a great essential mask for anyone who wants healthy-looking skin. Its benefits can be enjoyed by most skin types, including sensitive. I can overlook the non-perfect fit of the mask due to the visible improvement it gave my skin. Also, the current sale price is a real steal!

I have more Skin Factory masks to review once I put them to good use in the near future! =)

  1. have i told you that i think you look very cute wearing sheet masks? ;)
    the sale price is very tempting! i always think i should use nourishing sheet masks more often then i hate the initial cold feeling and i don't use them as often. ;-/

    (lmas at graduates from seould national university. i guess it's a good marketing tactic that specially works well for korean people. i'm a graduate of the same school but i feel quite skeptic about certain things. i should try their products soon before i go on..heheh)

  2. LOL aww thank you! I must tell you that I take and discard a lot of scary sheet masks pictures before I can choose one to post, keke. The sale price is really awesome; if the mask material was more like Beauty Clinic/Leaders Clinic then I would say it's a 5 star mask! Nourishing masks are good to use around this season, to me at least, since most of my masks are deeply moisturizing or whitening which is kind of useless since I'm currently oily and tanned! xP

    Ohh I didn't know you're a SNU grad! Ohhh, look at you, hehe. Yeah, that marketing totally works for Koreans, hehe. I think if you post that on your blog, you can also use it as a marketing tactic! =)

  3. wow the masks sound amazing you make me want to try *_* Sales on masks are the best thing ever! Glad it works on you!

  4. Good review! It's really cheap atm, I suppose it will run out of stock soon. :)

  5. I haven't tried many Korean masks, but I can safely say that I prefer Taiwanese masks. Korean ones usually leave a sticky film on my skin =[

  6. I liked the Korean masks you gave me last time :D I think the Koreans are innovative when it comes to sheet masks for sure. Love that picture of you with the mask on! XD

  7. Aw thanks! Yes, the sales price is awesome! <3

  8. Oh no! Sorry to hear that. I actually quite like the Leaders Clinic/Beauty Clinic brand, although it's not as affordable as Taiwanese masks. Then again, my skin is more dry than yours and the weather isn't humid here either, so maybe that's also why they work better for me.

  9. Yay glad to hear that! I think Korean masks can be hit or miss, but I'm liking these cosmeceutical brands like Skin Factory and Leaders Clinic/Beauty Clinic. And thank you! XD
