I was so excited to try sheet masks. I watched several videos, took notes and then checked prices of different sheet masks on eBay and Amazon. I chose to get Lovemore Cubilose Extract Hydrating and Firming Mask and Lovemore Bitter gourd purifying mask. Lovemore is a Taiwanese skincare company. I love Naruko products so I thought, " Let me try some other Taiwanese products".
I got 5 masks of each type and when they arrived I was so impressed by the packaging. They just looked luxurious and special. When I opened one mask, I was so amazed at how it looked - there were three layers to the sheet mask. One layer seemed like foil, and then there were two cotton like layers.
I wasn't sure how to use this mask with it's three layers, but I thought I should get the foil layer off and keep the other two to place on my face. Right or wrong that is what I did. The two layers of the mask were dripping with the product in my hands so I tried to quickly spread them over my face. But the mask did not fit right. I pulled it this way and then that way, but it just would not fit right over my face. And I don't have a particularly big nose!!!
Oh it was a night mare...The openings for the eyes were just tiny and I was afraid that product would get into my eyes. The opening for the nose was just strange and the mask would not lay on my face no matter how I pulled it. It was just an awful, awkward experience. As I was pulling the mask in every direction all the while product was dripping down my hands and arms. Needless to say, I will not repurchase. I have a couple masks left and I just ignore them. Enough about that and on with The Body shop Tea tree mask.
The body shop Tea tree mask is ok. Not fantastic, but ok. It smells bad and I expected it because I know Tea tree smells unpleasant. But the mask feels good and when it dries it doesn't pull on my skin. It is easy to wash off and my skin feels very refreshed afterwards. It must be effective, because I don't get breakouts these days.
I was given a Japanese sheet mask by Kracie- Hadabisei Facial Mask for acne care. I actually don't know what is in it. Have any of you used it before?
UPDATE: 06/08/17 I have some of these masks left and have little desire to use them. But I still think that The Body shop Tea tree oil mask is OK.
