How to Use Innisfree Intensive Ampoule Mask?
1. After cleansing, open the deep moisturizing hyaluronic acid ampoule and smooth over your skin according to skin texture.
2. Before the ampoule penetrates your skin, take out the Intensive Sheet Mask and apply over your skin, excluding the eyes and lips.
3. Remove the sheet after 10-20 minutes and gently pat in the remaining essence.
Before I start sharing my detailed review, let me clear the question that popped in your head – What is Catechin?
Catechin is a type of natural phenol and antioxidant and belongs to the chemical family of flavonoids. Catechins are usually found in Cacao Beans and Green tea.
Okay, with that out in the open, let me talk about the mask sheet!
The Innisfree Intensive Ampoule Mask comes in a single mask sheet packaging with one side slightly asymmetrical. There is a tiny sachet of the ampoule attached to it. This sachet is detachable and has a curved thingy to be torn open. There is 2 ml of the ampoule which needs to be applied on the skin.

Before this ampoule is completely absorbed, tear open the mask sheet sachet part and place the Organic Unbleached mask sheet on the face. This helps the ampoule to deeply penetrate into the skin. The mask sheets is easy to place on the skin and feels very different from the usual bleached cotton masksheets.
The ampoule was very runny (I expected it to be a bit heavy and thick). It got absorbed faster than I anticipated!
Once I placed the mask sheet on the face, it felt very cooling and refreshing on the skin. I removed it after about 15 minutes and went to sleep. I woke up with firm and supple skin. A couple of breakouts had calmed down while the dry spots were hard to find. I loved how my skin felt. The effect lasted 2 days!

I love the concept of ampoule + masksheet masks. I think they are even more hydrating to the skin than normal masksheets. This mask did not feel heavy on the skin and was very soothing so I am sure people with all skintypes will be able to get a good use from it. I have a couple more of similar masksheets from The Face Shop with me which I plan to use and review soon! I do recommend this mask (if you can find it). Innisfree do fabulous mask sheets!
