Review: The Face Shop Real Nature Mask (Green Tea)

The Face Shop Real Nature Mask (Green Tea) (20g)
Description: The air pockets within the sheet contain handful of nutritional essence, providing natural moisture and nourishment to skin.

*Green Tea: A hydrating & energizing mask sheet containing green tea extract to fill dry skin with refreshing and hydrating moisture.

Directions: Wash face and apply toner. Pull out the mask and carefully place it on the face. Remove after 10~12 minutes and tap lightly to absorb the remaining essence into the skin.

Mask sheet well soaked with essence~

This is how the mask looks like...
*thanks dad for helping me to hold the mask :P*

This is the amount of excess essence being poured out from the pack.

The essence gets absorbed within 10 minutes and it does leaves a sticky feel on the skin.

Consistency & Color:
Watery, serum-like and colorless.

Scent:
Err...I don't know how to describe the scent of this mask. It doesn't smells like Green Tea at all. To me, it's like the same as the Real Nature Mung Bean Mask(Review: link), this also has a scent like a wet tissue, not too strong or overpowering. It's quite pleasant but it's not refreshing though...

Moisture Test:
Before applying the essence, my skin moisture level measured 31.7%.
After applying the essence, my skin moisture level measured 53.0%.
After 10 minutes later(essence got absorbed), I took the measurement again, it dropped to 52.6%.

Moisture gained before and after applying the essence was 21.3%.

The difference on moisture loss after 10 minutes of application was only 0.4%.
which I concluded that this mask is quite moisturizing.

**Above result is just for the application of a mask, without prior application of a toner.**
With application of a toner and a moisturizer, I believe the skin will be perfectly hydrated!

Likes:
- moisturizes the skin
- gentle on the skin; suits sensitive skin
- calming and soothing effect
- leaves the skin feeling energized, hydrated, soft and smooth
- does not cause breakout or irritation
- mask well soaked with essence
- contains a handful of excess essence

Dislikes:
- leaves skin feeling sticky to the touch -.-

Verdict: This mask suits all skin type including sensitive skin. It leaves the skin feeling energized, hydrated, soft and smooth(and sticky -.-) to the touch. In my opinion, I think this mask is a very gentle sheet mask that well hydrates the skin. If you have inflamed acne, this mask does temporary soothe the redness of the acne however, it does not really heals and treats them.

People who have acne, I would recommend you the Etude House AC Clinic Sheet Mask(Review: link) instead of this. Etude House AC Clinic Sheet Mask does a better job in treating and healing acne. But if you are looking for a basic mask that hydrates the skin I'd say, give this mask a try~ :)

  1. Hey Ashley :3 Hope you remember me >< (well I rarely been on any blogs so dont mind if you dont. keke XD)
    My friends bought this for me when she was in Korea, like 20 for only RM30 or less. And yes you're right, I wear it consistently and it did nothing to my face (which is acne type) except for keeping it hydrated (which my skin doesnt have problem with hydration before). Your review is so honest, I like it :)

  4. I absolutely hate how my skin is left SUPER sticky. What do you do with the stickiness? Do you wash your face afterwards or leave your skin sticky?
