Nothing can beat the amazing mask sheets that Korean skincare brands offer. I have tried plenty of different masksheets but I always end up going to the $1 masksheets that brands like The Face Shop, Etude House, Innisfree, Missha, etc. offer. Recently, I tried one from Etude House and here is the detailed account of my experience with the mask.
Product: Etude House 0.2 mm Deep Moisturising Ceramide Mask
Quantity: 20 ml
Claim: The daily low-irritant mask made of breathable 0.2 mm air sheet effectively delivers 7-free essence to your skin. The essence contains Ceramide that quenches skin’s thirst by providing abundant moisture and strengthens skin’s moisture barrier.
Ingredients: Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Caprylic/CapriC Troglyceride, Glycerin, MethylPropaneol, Sorbitan Stearate, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexadiol, Sorbitan Sesquoleate, Arginine, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Sucrose Cocoate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Licorice Root extract, Camellia Sinesis Leaf Extract, Ginger Root Extract, Japanese Goldthread Root Extract, Dehydroacetic Acid, Dipotassium Glycerizate, Disodium EDTA, Boswellia Serrata Gum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Pine Oil, Lavender oil, Mandarin Orange oil, Asiatic Pennywort extract, Ceramide NP, Eucaplyptus Leaf Oil, Phytosterm/Octyldodecyl Lauroyl Glutamate, Lemon Fruit Extract, Cedarwood Oil
Etude House 0.2 mm Deep Moisturising Mask comes in an individual sachet packaging. The sachet has all of the major information such as the ingredients, how-to-use, and other details printed on it. The masksheet itself is folded and is thinner than the other mask sheets I have used from Etude House in the past.
People with a small face might have to struggle a bit to fit the mask sheet to the face but my chubby cheeks more than fit into the mask. I love to apply this mask sheet at night and relax before I doze off to sleep (after removing the mask of course.) Another point of difference between the Etude House masksheets I have used in the past and the 0.2 mm mask sheets is that the essence is not too thin and water-y. It makes it easy to use.
Since Ceramide is a man-made anti-ageing chemical, the musky sweet scent of the mask appears to be a good match. The scent is noticeable until the essence is wet and dissipates when the essence is completely absorbed. This happens after you have removed the mask (after 20 minutes or so of application) and tapped it to make it get absorbed into the skin.
Despite the weather (summer/monsoon), my skin is prone to dry out in specific areas. After using this mask, my skin remained moisturised for over 3 days which is great. I am totally satisfied with this Etude House mask.
In my opinion, the Etude House 0.2mm Ceramide mask will work for all skin types even though it is more suitable for people who are dealing with skin ageing. You can purchase the mask from the Etude House global store or any other online K-beauty store. For a periodic TLC for the skin, this Etude House mask sheets is a perfect option!
