I bought Mamonde Flower Essential Mask Moisturizing Sheetmasks in a pack of 10 from emart in Jeongja. An individual pack is sold at 1000 Korean Won (KRW) while a pack of 10 comes at exactly 10000. It is a little unexpected because we usually see a little bit of rebate per piece on various items if we buy in bulk. So anyway let’s move on to Mamonde Sheet mask review.
I got a good deal during a promotion going at the Mamonde counter and scored it at 7500 KRW (~6$). I had not really heard much about this brand before and neither had I seen it in a store other than the emart in Jeongja and Aritaum stores but somehow I came back with 10 face mask sheets. It was many months back but these fell on the back of my vanity and I forgot about them and started using (getting crazy with) The Face Shop mask sheets. On a particular cleaning day, I rediscovered these and vowed to use them up before anything else.
There was a lot to choose from at the Mamonde face masksheet colection so I asked the girl at the counter to help me find one for dry skin. She picked this one up and I did not look around at all, just proceeded to billing. Even though it is obvious by the name – Moisturizing Mask – there were revitalizing, softening etc etc there too.
The instructions were written on the back in Korean. So here are the instructions given on The Face Shop’s english website (which I visit often):
– Open the pack
– Open up the folded gooey masksheet
– Apply on clean face, setting the cuts around eyes and lips.
– Keep for 15 minutes (minimum 10 mintues, maximum 20 minutes)
– Pat the cheeks with your fingers or massage the residue in. No need to wash.
I have loved The Face Shop mask sheets a lot especially the Blueberry one and I think this one is comparable to that. I loved how my skin felt afterwards. I used it at night and my skin was super soft in the morning. I did not even have dry spots on the corners of my mouth which I usually have as the weather turns cooler.
Rating – 4/5
Recommend – Yes. Especially for people with dry skin.
Repurchase – Yes (but I already have too many)
I am yet to open my Holika Holika Vitamin C masksheets or the other millions that I have “collected” in the past few months so I do not think I would be purchasing any masks for a long (Looooong) time now. I do plan to stock up while leaving Korea though! It might be my last chance to try as many Korean cosmetics.
